We’ve seen the trailer for upcoming episodes, and it’s inevitable. Chuck asks Sarah, point blank, an important question. Face it. As far as we’re concerned, it is The question. “Sarah, do you love me?”
Wanna drive yourself crazy? Ask yourself how she’ll answer.
Can Sarah say “I don’t know? – I need more time?” Carina knew two seasons and three years ago. Isn’t that enough time?
Can Sarah say no? How possibly could she do that? We know when she’s lying to us (even under pentathol). Chuck knows when she’s lying to him (and when the kiss is actually about him). And Sarah even knows now when she’s lying to herself. If she doesn’t, Ellie will tell her, and so will Casey. Who is left to lie to?
Can Sarah say, “Yes, but…”, the way Chuck did to Lou? You’re everything I’m looking for, but I just can’t look now.”? Why not? Is it still so complicated? Just how does Chuck make things any more complicated for her?
In fact, doesn’t choosing Chuck make them simpler?
Even though it seems we’re travelling at a breakneck speed, there’s obviously a long road ahead of them still. Hannah and Shaw bring consequences along with them in the story, as do real people in real life.
Amyabn wrote in a comment that if this is the season cliff hanger, she’ll be ready to storm the studio gates. I imagine about 6 million other fans will be ready to join her. But even so…
How can Sarah say anything but yes?
