For starters, this is not the end of Chuck This. We will have a re-watch schedule soon. We are still discussing details of how we will be doing it. So be sure to check in over the next few days, there will be news. And of course we’ll discuss the S5 discs and director’s cut of 5.13 when they come out in May.
Today’s post is an idea from long time regular guest of this site SD who just sent us an interesting suggestion; why don’t we do our own sort of fan fiction/speculative epilogue for Chuck? So that’s what we’re going to do. For those of us who aren’t completely comfortable writing fiction, we can phrase it as a speculation or narrative of what we think happened next after the credits rolled. And then next week we’ll put up a poll and see what the most popular epilogue is.
And let’s not make this another round of praising or trashing the actual finale. This is all about what happened next.
After the jump, I’ll start with my own ideas!
Well, I think all that kissing stuff continued for quite some time. I think it was semi-magical(!). Even as Chuck was telling Sarah their story she was catching up emotionally to where she had been on the Bullet Train. So we can say her heart was completely restored even before the kiss. At the end of 5.12 Sarah had claimed she believed Chuck, but she didn’t feel it. Well on the beach she felt it. As Chuck talked she completely remembered her love for him. The kiss itself brought back certain major moments; like their first real kiss at the Bryce “bomb”, the charm bracelet, “shut up and kiss me”, “Feeling Good”, the proposal, their vows, and the drawing on the bullet train.
So when Sarah said “take me home Chuck” he did. They snuck back into the apartment and enjoyed each others company for the rest of the night (is that an acceptable euphemism!? This is a family friendly site after all…). In the morning, Ellie came over to make pancakes and a family breakfast. She was pleasantly surprised to discover Chuck wasn’t alone, and let out a piercing Elliesquee that awakened every dog in the neighborhood. But Sarah did resist throwing a knife…
The last scene of this epilogue is the combined Bartowski, Woodcomb, and Grimes households gathering for one last family breakfast. As we see the gang enjoying each others’ company Sarah suddenly recalls some other such gatherings.
Now I’m sure you all can write something better than that!
