Chuck and Sarah Go Neo and Trinity
Or Bonnie and Clyde, if you’re of a certain age. Well, the bank heist is more Bonnie and Clyde, the clothes more Neo and Trinity, but either way, they’re looking a bit like outlaws robbing a bank.
At least it’s an evil bank they’re after, with Vivian McArthur, daughter of Alexei Volkoff.
While Chuck is finding his inner Keanu, Sarah is finding her inner bride. That should be fun, but I’ll be disappointed if it’s too difficult for her. We’ve seen Sarah fretting over her nearly empty guest list quite a bit already. She got a good start at filling her side of the church with the CAT Squad and I would hate to see her stop now, or even go backwards a step over her mysterious, absent mother and disappeared-always-on-the-lam father. Besides, I would like to know the real story about her sister as much as Chuck would.
Sarah excels at half-way measures in her personal life, though. It’s time for her to decide – include them or exclude them. One foot in, or as painful as it might be, both feet? Which will make her happier?
With Morgan gone from the apartment, Sarah has a chance to be even more “versatile” than she’s been since The Suburbs and to step back and enjoy the whole “Martha Stewart thing”. That is something I would like to see! What are Chuck&Sarah going to do now that they are empty nesters? Will they finally refurbish the apartment Sarah style?
And where is Morgan going to wind up, anyway? Back with Bolonia? One hopes not! As much as I’d love to see her again, Morgan deserves a bit better than rooming with Big Mike and mamaG. He needs to decide on a direction – towards home (which has been mostly Chuck’s home for most of his life) or towards Alex. He should be with Alex, of course. But there’s a complicating factor, and it’s not Casey this time.
It’s Kathleen. Casey is coming up fast on a double decision. Will he stay with TeamB (which used to be much more TeamC)? And does he need to re-consider his decision about staying out of Kathleen’s life? After all, in Burbank he remains part of Alex’s life, which means Morgan is there, which means, inevitably, Chuck&Sarah. I don’t think the half-way measure of leaving for an office behind the wall in Castle will do it for him. It’s time to fish or cut bait.
Which will make him happier?
And finally, there’s Vivian. She was introduced as an unhappy, purposeless, little rich girl. It looks like she too has a decision to make. Vivian has been training and acquiring skills for a long time and now that she understands the purpose, there is only one question. Is she her father’s daughter? When she has her answer, will it make her any happier than she was?
Speculate away, my friends!
