Only 48 Hours Left for Spoilers and Wishes and Specs — Oh My.
During the hiatus between S4 and S5, we at Chuck This have tried to schedule polls and rewatches, so all of us would continue to have plenty of Chuck stuff to talk about, especially in the driest times before news of S5 began to spill. Our long wait is almost over.
In about 48 hours, our favorite show will kick off its last season. That means we don’t have much more time to speculate.
I think we’ve run aground with the Morgansect specs and worries, so I’d like to turn to all other things Chuck. It’s everybody’s last chance to put forth their favorite specs. It’s a fun way to pass the time, and sometimes we end up being right.
Last year on this blog, someone predicted that Chuck and Sarah would buy the Buymore and go into business for themselves … funded by Hartley/Volkoff. Not bad huh?
Let’s see how close we get on S5 specs.
I am glad that the all the family is in the know. So how will they fit into the new family biz? How will Ellie be involved in the spy world? Will she actually go on missions? Carry a gun?
I say Ellie ends up involved on a mission somewhat by accident, but that for the most part she is a medical/Intersect consultant. I think she will continues Stephen’s work on the Intersect.
Question is, will she come up with a new version for Chuck, and if she does will he upload it?
Well, now we know who’s playing Sarah’s mom, but what about the rest? Was she one of Jack’s mark? Nah, I don’t really think so.
I have always seen her as a regular (not-a-spy) person. It’s still my fervent hope (despite the casting) that she is just that. It’s been my long-time spec that she is a lawyer, prosecutor, or judge … turned politician. With the walking hug description, I’m now considering Child Psychologist as a possibility. Call me crazy.
Sarah said she felt caught in the middle between her parents. Is there another source of conflict between them? (For the record I categorically reject any and all secret baby theories.) I can see either of the above professions clashing with Sarah.
What do you think? What does she do? What’s the conflict? Is there reconciliation? Does she survive?
This is the only area where my specs are remotely specific. Of course, they could be so wrong, but here goes.
1. I don’t think GB is the PM. I think she knows a lot of facts, but isn’t a part of the conspiracy. She’s been just as manipulated as Chuck and Sarah and TeamB.
2. I think there are 3 different groups in the CIA, with regards to Agent X and the conspiracy. (a) There are some who know nothing about Agent X. They would have wanted to stop Volkoff’s operation, just like any other arms operation. They may not even know about the Intersect. (b) There are those who know about Agent X and consider it an embarrassment. They would have wanted to stop and kill Hartley/Volkoff all this time, emphasis on the kill part. They would be in favor of the Intersect if it were perfected. (c) Then I think there may have been a third group of people, who knew about Agent X, perhaps even sabotaged the Intersect to help create him, and wanted to use him and his operation to manipulate the flow of weapons around the world. They would want Volkoff to evade capture, but once captured, would want him to disappear. They would want an Intersect for their own personal agenda. Therefore, Stephen and Chuck were useful to them. Once Stephen was no longer useful, he was killed. Chuck is next. Not only is he no longer useful, but for some reason, he is a threat.
I can certainly see how such a diverse bunch of players and complex plot would have complicated Stephen and Mary’s lives.
3. So, why is Chuck such a threat? I’ll just take a guess that it’s because of his brain, his genetics, his legacy, and his character. He has the brains, the knowledge, the means, and the will to stop them. He can’t be manipulated … even by the Intersect. So they have to eliminate him.
Those are the thoughts I’ve kicked around. What do you think? Who is the great PM, and what’s at the heart of the conspiracy? Why is Chuck special, and why is he such a threat?
Chuck and Sarah
I predict a good things for them. Here’s my question. Will they end up out of the spy biz? If so, what jobs will they take? What kind of life will they finally have? All of which feeds into my last category for speculation …
How do you think it’s all going to end? Will there be a Bartowski baby or a pregnancy? Will the ending be a typical Fedak prologue ending or an epilogue? I sort of think it will be an epilogue with a soft prologue.
Is someone going to die? Was Fedak bluffing at Comic Con when he said one of the people on stage might not survive the season, and that it would be big? Just because of his wording, I’ll guess that it’s Big Mike. I prefer that no one dies, but I won’t be at all surprised if someone does.
I realize I haven’t even started on Casey and Kathleen or Morgan and Alex or the Buymore crew. So feel free to speculate about all things Chuck.
Pre S5 Limerick:
I’m riding high on anticipation
‘Cause by my last calculation
There’s two days to go
‘Til my favorite show
So, last call for all speculation.
That’s all folks. Speculate away.
