Promo #13 Really, Officially, Spoils Us
I must be some sort of masochist, because I almost wish that I hadn’t seen it. – Yes, the reveal here is so good, that the only way I could think to make it better would be to surprise me with it on the 10th.
But it’s an official NBC promo, and certainly has the blessings of every one involved. So who am I to argue?
It’s so funny/cool/great that everything we’ve heard up to now has been leading to this, and the worst of our fears at the end of season 2 were merely an artifact made worse by the long wait. Those fears were that important things were going to be dropped on the floor and simply ignored. After seeing this promo, it very much appears to my eyes that they’re not!
Now, if you haven’t seen this new promo yet, Sarah asks a very important question, one that’s been asked before, but not by her. From what we know about season 3 already, I think we know Chuck’s answer, but that may not be as important as Sarah asking at all.
Now I have one. How do we want Chuck to answer her? I know what I want to hear (“Go with your heart, buddy. Our brains just screw things up!”), but I also know that this is my stilted imagination leading me to a premature dead end. I think. Others make excellent arguments to the contrary. Now, I still hold to my earlier statement that I’m far more interested in seeing the fruits of the creator’s imaginations than my own, but I can’t deny that I know what my overly-romantic heart wants to see (and soon)! We also have to notice that when Chuck or Sarah (or other characters, too) have come to a decision, it’s often not final. Like real people, they’re entitled to change their minds.
I expect to be on the verge of heartbreak. I expect that I’ll be yelling at the TV (again), and ruminating darkly for hours or days, if this comes up in episode 3.
I expect to be back the very next episode. And I expect every moment to be worth it.
