So, Agent Superman takes Sarah off somewhere and Chuck takes in a secret team to save her, but ultimately, it turns out that Agent Superman's not a bad guy and Chuck's mission is called off. General Redhead thinks Chuck's crazy for thinking Agent Superman can't act like a professional around Sarah. She thinks it is perfectly fine that Agent Superman could work with the woman who was responsible for killing his wife, but Chuck sticks to his guns. He also mixes whiskey and gaming, and misquotes John Hughes movies. When Sarah comes over and finds him in this state, she admits she loves him, and they kiss. Then they head off on a mission with Agent Superman to take down the Ring director. Agent Superman proves himself by fighting and then killing a bunch of Ring bad guys. Everyone buys it until Chuck shows Morgan (who quit his job at the Buy More to be Chuck's assistant) the footage of the fight, and the kung-fu geek knows a fake action sequence when he sees one: Agent Superman didn't really beat up the bad guys. Chuck wakes General Redhead to let her know, but when she sees Morgan, she shuts him off and blocks his calls. Chuck and Morgan enlist Casey and head to Paris to save Sarah from Shaw.
When Chuck gets there, Shaw's already drugged her and is doing some sort of ritualistic reading her of her last rites in the place where she killed his wife, with the Ring director conveniently present. Chuck heads in to save Sarah, while Casey shoots up the Ring baddies off-screen (lame!). Chuck can't shoot Shaw, so Agent Superman gets up and fights him, and wins (Agent Superman comments on how he can't flash because of his emotions). Agent Superman takes Sarah to the river, and tells Chuck he likes him and doesn't want to hurt him, but if he follows, he will kill him. Chuck finds Sarah's gun and follows. When he gets to the river, he pleads with Agent Superman not to kill Sarah, and that this isn't him; he can't do this. Agent Superman says that, actually, he can, but Chuck can't, so he raises his gun. Chuck's faster, and he totally, awesomely, goose-bump-inducingly shoots Shaw, who jumps over the bridge and tries to take Sarah with him. But Chuck grabs her and hangs on. So he basically saved her twice, but she's too passed out to realize it.
Chuck and Sarah stay in Paris, so she can sleep off her drug, while Casey and Morgan head back to Burbank, apparently. Casey has the Ring director, and uses him to bribe General Redhead for his old job back, a new Crown Vic, and apparently a job for Morgan. Morgan's already begged for his own job back with Big Mike, which is fine, because that will be his cover. (It's a little far-fetched that Morgan could be a spy, but ... that's just this show, so I don't really require or expect realism.) In Paris, Sarah wakes up a little groggy, and Chuck reminds her Agent Superman's dead. She pieces it all together and says that Chuck shot him. He starts to explain, thinking she won't think he's the same Chuck, but she says he saved her and they start making out. General Redhead interrupts and insists they come back for a mission involving Peruvian assassins. But, while she's talking, Sarah turns the computer around and shuts her off. She and Chuck crawl under the covers and finally, after two and a half years of foreplay, have sex. And fanboys and fangirls everywhere cheered and cried tears of joy over their Subway sandwiches.
You know you want to watch the episode (or at least the end over and over) so go ahead. Here's the link. Have a field day.
Some things Chuck wants us to know about him: Sarah thought he killed a guy and it upset her, but Casey told her the truth: Casey was the killer. Agent Superman found out Sarah's Red Test was to kill his wife, and then he took her away in secret at the end of the episode. Chuck was worried. We open on Sarah and Agent Superman running together along the side of a building, seemingly working together. He tells her the Ring's most senior operative is inside, and she breaks them in. She asks him to cover her, and he draws his gun ominously.
Buy More. Chuck's looking for Casey, but Morgan's pestering him about being a member of Operation Bartowski. He sells himself as the Q to his Bond, Robin to his Batman. Morgan tells Chuck Casey's whereabouts (he's exiting the bathroom), so Chuck's like, "You're a spy." He says it to get rid of Morgan, but ... this is Morgan, so we know he thinks it's real. Sarah goes down some stairs and says, "Shaw?" with some uncertainty. Casey thinks Chuck shouldn't have just told him everything he just told him off screen, but Chuck says General Redhead won't help so he has to. Casey gives him his contact, finally. It's one Colonel Sanders, and Casey growls at Chuck not to make fun of his name.
Back at the Ring warehouse, Sarah finds the same video Agent Superman watched last week of his wife saying "I love you" and then Sarah shooting her. Chuck and his gang approach the building as Agent Superman approaches Sarah with his gun drawn. When she turns and asks him why the Ring has this video of her Red Test, he lowers his gun so it looks like he was never pointing it at her, but at whoever might be lurking behind her. She still doesn't get who the woman is, but she says it was the worst moment of her life. Agent Superman: "Mine too." She asks who the woman is, and he says, "Evelyn Shaw." She can't believe she killed his wife, but he says it's not her fault since she was used and manipulated. She's clearly torn up about it, and Chuck watches as she and Agent Superman end up hugging. Then someone calls his radio, startling the hugbirds. Chuck's all, "Hi," and then Colonel Sanders' crew comes in like it's a big something when it's a whole lot of nothing. Chuck cancels everything: tactical, air support, "and the tank. Cancel the tank." Hee. Bobby Cake credits.
Castle. General Redhead scolds Chuck for calling in a full tactical assault, and says he's clearly not ready for Rome. He points out it was Sarah who was in danger and he had to save her, but General Redhead's not thrilled about the bill, which is longer than her copy of Atlas Shrugged. Right, but it probably doesn't seem as long, which is what matters. Chuck reminds her that she also believed that Agent Superman had gone rogue. Just then Sarah and Agent Superman come in, and he tells General Redhead that Chuck's actions were those of a true spy, and he'd have done the same thing himself. "Maybe without the stealth bombers, but maybe that's just me." Sarah sweetly thanks Chuck for the tank. Agent Superman wonders who ordered the Red Test, and then he tells General Redhead he can still work with Sarah, since they both want the same thing: to capture the director and take down the Ring. He asks Sarah if she's with him and they can still be a team. She says yes, and Chuck's like, "Great. Everyone's back together again."
