Well friends, I’m trying to get back into the groove for Chuck. This two week layoff, plus a very very busy work schedule, have left me with precious little time to post or to attempt anything longer. I have been poking around our blog and the internet and am very excited for Monday’s new episode, so I thought I’d open a speculation thread. We can start a review thread after the episode has aired.
I’ve seen multiple videos to include a more spoilery Canadian version (they get all the good stuff!). Here they are:
And the Canadian promo:
I am guessing that the episode will unfold with Sarah and Chuck leaving Paris on a train. Yeah, I’m that brilliant. In the meantime, Casey starts training Morgan and comedy ensues. Beckman will get mad that C&S are off the grid and send Casey and Morgan to get them. The Canadian promo shows the bit about Chuck and Sarah’s vows-to stop being spies together. I think their acknowledgement of seeing the Basque terrorist will spur them to action. That, along with their recognition that they are an awesome team, will make them reevaluate a possible life outside of being spies. Casey catches up with them, only to be captured, and Chuck and Sarah do the right thing by rescuing him and Morgan (at least I think that is what the flying spin kick stuff is about). I hope we get some sort of moment between Chuck and Ellie, or even better, Chuck, Sarah, and Ellie. The promotional stuff says Ellie is mad that Chuck missed her party, not that he doesn’t say goodbye. I’ve also read in various tweets that we will hear Sarah actually say “I love you” to Chuck and that the bracelet will be making an appearance. I hope, as I’ve speculated elsewhere, that Chuck gives her an Eiffel tower charm or a train charm to make the bracelet “hers” and not just a hand me down.
I’m curious about Beckman’s reaction. Will she say it’s about time and then send in the spy couple in the next episode to help? Will she be mad? How does she keep Chuck and Sarah in the spy game-blackmail, threats, or is it voluntary? Will Morgan still live with Chuck (and presumably Sarah) or will he move in with Casey? Or Anna? Stay tuned and let the speculation begin!
Update From Joe
I Have Questions!
Are Chuck and Sarah going to be “secret lovers” for a while? If so, how long before it comes out in the open? The promos tell me that Casey’s going to know pretty quickly, and I’m sure Morgan will too. How long before General Beckman and Ellie find out, and which of them will have the most explosive reaction? That’s what I want to know.
We see in the promos that Chuck & Sarah decide to leave the spy life. No one believes that’s going to last very long. But what changes their mind, and when does this happen?
Did “the Director” succeed in getting the CIA Cypher schematics to The Ring, or did Casey stop them? Will we soon see a Ring Intersect Agent? Is this what brings back Stephen?
Can Ellie intersect like Chuck, and did I just invent a new verb?
Who really had Eve Shaw killed, and why? The Ring? The CIA? Langston Graham? Will we find that this is Chuck & Sarah’s first big mystery to solve, and will Bryce help them solve it from beyond the grave? (Bwa-ha!)
