Many of us have made reference to the fact that we know very little about the enemies in Chuck, so I thought I would start a new thread to analyze what we know so far.
Fulcrum is comprised of people from various backgrounds. They recruit spies as well as scientists like Jill and computer genisuses like Roarke.
Roarke had RIOS, the Roarke Industries Operating System, which seems to have been designed to serve as a trojan horse to gather information. Roarke also worked on designing a new Intersect and had a history with Mr. Stephen Bartowski, aka Orion. In Colonel, he was ready to try and transform Fulcrum agents into Intersected spies. Their training facility in downtown LA was full of visual propaganda, ala previous Fascist/Comunist regimes. We also know they recruit and have members in different countries spy services. Cole Barker was working to get after Fulcrum agents in Beefcake and Lethal Weapon.
The Ring is comprised of multiple different different groups. We also learn that they never lose (vs. Ring). They are seeking an Intersect, they have sophisticated communications equipment (those fancy phones), and they are very aggressive. We know that in Angel, they wanted to keep the status quo be eliminating the dictator before he made his announcement of democratic elections.
So what is their agenda? I’m curious as to what you guys think and how Team Bartowski will go about defeating them.
