I liked it. It was an OK episode and it had a feeling of the old episodes back in Seasons 2 and 3 when we saw Chuck/Sarah/Casey working together. The non-verbal communication is still there and I loved every moment of the three of them on screen together. They didnīt need to talk, they supported Chuck by just being there. I missed this the whole season.
I am also glad that we saw some of Ellie and Devon again and I really think itīs wonīt be long when Chuck will tell her.
Chuck and Ellie are exactly the same
. I never really realized that until today and I think, as someone pointed that out, that Devon is the only person who can see it. He knows both of them, keeps secret of both of them (which has to killing him) and the concerned look he had the whole time meant a thousand words. The little chat between Chuck and Devon, and their uncertain "It is the right thing to do?" looks said it all. They canīt keep up like this. I also like how Devonīs attituted towards Chuck has changed. He doesnīt take him as a "younger brother" anymore but he looks at him as a real, adult person, who, in his book, does a job he doesnīt want to be a part of.
I am glad they put Sarah/Chuck relationship aside this time. It is a team show, not Sarah/Chuck show and I am glad we saw the whole team together and that they finally stopped talking about some relationship problems and just were together
I am not convinced it was Vivian herself who set this up. It might have been that sneaky lawyer of Volkoffīs. I am glad Chuck didnīt spill the beans to her as he did with her father so she probably doesnīt know about Ellie (if it was her planning to kill Chuck), but if it was that lawyer (forgot his name), then he probably knows - he worked with Vivianīs father after all.
Buy More line was a fun for a change, I was glad to see Big Mike again and Kevin Bacon was cute
And btw., I am almost sure the Agent X is Chuck. Papa B knew that Chuck took a bit of IS into his brain as a child and probably "divided" their roles - Ellie is there to help and protect Chuck, and Chuck is there to use it. And both Bartowskis are extremely intelligent and kids of his father. I wouldnīt be surprised if they started to make their own cave as Papa B did in the future
I am glad there are still 5 episodes left, so they can properly close this storyline. But the breaks between episodes canīt be good for ratings
