Speaking of the bracelet scene, I can't help but laugh when Chuck says he's over in the romantic comedy section. 
On the right there's a Jaws 3 DVD over his shoulder.  :D
On the left there's "Stop or My Mom Will Shoot" .



Yeah! When I heard him say he was in that section, I checked out the movie behind him to get the same conclusion as you lol!

Any idea what the DVD is just to the left of Jaws?
Hmm, I didn't know Jaws 3 was originally shown in 3D.  Only saw the TV version.
The synopsis for Stop has kind of a familiar ring to it:
Eventually the film draws to a denouement involving the title of the film and a revelation that even though she seems frail and weak she is capable of strong actions in some circumstances, I.e. when her offspring is threatened.

Funny how after watching Chuck its a given that there's a refresher on a bunch of movies I've not thought of in years.

For a "life imitating art" moment - The SciFi channel will be running a Twilight Zone marathon this year starting New Year's Eve and running through New Year's Day.

Maybe he's facing the romcoms. Do we have a cap of the DVDs behind Sarah?

The one telling thing I noticed in the beginning was how quickly she started talking about her past Christmas.  A few episodes back she was ready to kill him for trying to pry into her past.  This time she did say she didn't want to talk about it and then 10 seconds later without proding she nows tells it easily.  This shows just how much she and they have grown together and how comfortable she now feels when he's around.

He is becoming so "smooth" and at ease with her. . familiarity, I guess. . but that made the ending scene all the more hard to take.  At the end, he couldn't even talk to her, really.  I think that was what she picked up on as being a "red flag" that something is wrong.
She was pretty upset when she came back to Buy More and she could easily missed it, the only thing she needed was Chuck and he was the only thing on her mind.
She could have seen it when she is showing Awesome and Ellie the bracelet, she did look at Chuck in the moment.
But she had a lot on her mind and she was not vigilant in that moment, I wonder if she even had seen a "bad guy" in that moment.

Chuck holding Sarah's hand and stroking it after giving her the bracelet was a really nice, touching moment (sniff - OK, I am soft like pudding!)
Chuck did really brake her wall in that episode, especially in that scene  ;D Chuck can really touch her buttons, we saw that many times in this episode.

Yes, she's sitting down in front of a rack of the "20th Century Masters" music CD sets of various artists.  Most retail outlets carry that music series.

phantom, that entire seen will just make you warm and toasty all over. . just like the holidays should.   :)

Hey, there. . got room enough for me in that bowl too?  What's your favorite. . mine's butterscotch!  LOL



I loved how during this shot below she started trying to pull her hand back away a little bit when she was talking about not being able to take that gift, and he wouldn't let it go.  I think that in part led to the full-eyed shot we saw just a few seconds later on where the realization hit her at what he was really saying. .



Sorry for the larger caps. . this dang full-screen format my station is apparently broadcasting in now.  Grrrr.

Nice screen caps folks.

The bracelet will come into play in many ways.  Its a symbol of the Chuck and Sarah relationship. It will tie into the Chuck/Ellie/father storyline.  It will also be the alert, to General Beckman probably via Casey, that Sarah has become compromised.

If Chuck meant to give the bracelet to Sarah as a gift to symbolize his love for her and this implies that she be his real gilfriend. Wouldn't this effectively change their cover to real. He would expect to go on non cover dates, and get all the benefits that come along with said realtionship. Was he just saying it to Sarah, to imply yeah we don't have the normal BF/GF relationship and I know it is not going any further but I just wanted you to know that I think of you as my GF and these feelings are real.

Between the whole gift exchange Sarah was the one who threw the real girlfriend comment out there. It was Chuck that acknowledged it but he did not put that out there. So in essence by Sarah accepting the gift and all it implied she is acknowledging Chucks feelings for her and it changes the realtionship on the emotional trust level but does it really change on the surface. Did Sarah just accept that they are in a real realtionship.

Because even if the Sarah did not shoot that guy I cannot see these two just throwing caution to the wind and start dating for real and having makeout sessions in Sarah's appartment.

What I saw was that Sarah asked Chuck if she's his real girlfriend and his answer was that he thinks that she's his girlfriend. But I see that their relationship isn't so much like a real one, but with that bracelet they both accept that they are together and this is enough for both of them.

But with that they can act more relaxed with their cover dates when them for now is real. Like the date in the first episode in season 2.
