Well, I’ve had lots of time to ponder the future for our favorite spies. I’m not sure what is to come with the choices ahead in Season 5. Part of me has a wish list and the other part of me wants to not project what I want onto the season, for fear of comparing the choices the writers and actors make with my expectations. At any rate, I was listening to my iPod (I’ve had a lot of time spent traveling home, and music is a passion of mine) and came across a song that I thought was fitting for our heroes. More after the break.
Back in the late ’80’s, there was a band that may be considered a one hit wonder. The year was 1987 and the band was T’Pau. The hit song was “Heart and Soul.” Most of you probably know it.
However, I have chosen the title track of that album, “Bridge of Spies,” as an ode to what could be. Take a look at the lyrics (below). I think the song could fit any member of Team Bartowski. At first blush, it would be a good fit for Sarah, choosing to be a full time wife and/or mother or both she and Chuck hanging it up for a post-spy life together. The line “no hero, no regrets, but only meant to be” is perfect. It could nicely fit for Mary, particularly if they retcon Stephen’s death and let them ride off into the sunset (I’m a sappy romantic, so I could deal with that as an option- I’m just sayin’). How about Morgan, leaving the biz in spite of being the Intersect, choosing a life with Alex? Or potentially it could fit for Casey and this new character, Gertrude.

Bridge Of Spies lyrics
So long I've waited for you to come to me anticipated what I would say. And no one could know how it feels to be in your embrace again so tender. Yes there were times I could not hold on Each day that came a little more hope was gone. I'd look into my heart to see what I had done And now I can't believe the day is finally come! I am walking over the bridge of spies today Freedom is only one more step away you only have to hold me. Take me to you! Now the things we wanted they're so far away it seems Your love is a distant thing that I kept deep inside of me. Now if I could show you where I lived in my fantasy On the continent of dreams you'd be with me. I don't know if I could go through it all again For what's the point if you are never free to say. This is what I believe this is a part of me No hero no regrets but only meant to be. I am walking over the bridge of spies today . . . I am walking over the bridge of spies today . . . Hold me hold me! Hold me hold me!
