Castle. Sarah tells Chuck that Manoosh has to go underground, because if the Ring finds him he could build another Intersect. She says it's the only way, and asks if Chuck wants her to handle it. He says yeah, but he has to. He walks in to the room Manoosh is in, and Manoosh says he's been freaking out and when will they let him go. Chuck says they can't let him go. He's being sent to a secured isolation facility, where he'll be safe. Manoosh says he didn't do anything wrong, other than try to make a few bucks. He pleads Chuck to help him, saying he thought he was his friend. Chuck: "I'm not. I'm a spy." Some CIA guys come in and drag Manoosh away. Chuck looks sad, and Casey helpfully offers that the only way to deal with burning an asset is Johnny Walker Black.
Buy More. When Chuck arrives, Hannah asks where he's been: Paris again? He says, "Dubai, actually," and she's like, "Funny." Then she asks if he's been next door at the yogurt place. He looks worried, but she says she knows his ex works there. She starts to leave, and he asks her what about the tutorial. She says rule number 1 is not to work on an empty stomach, so she's going to get sushi on break (hey, the stalking was right). Morgan finds Chuck, and asks if he can talk to him for a second. Chuck says he's kind of beat, and Morgan says he can imagine: "All that travel." Chuck, worried, asks what travel, and Morgan's like, "Just driving around town on all those installs." Chuck smiles nervously, and Morgan asks if there's anything Chuck wants to talk him about. "No. Is there anything you want to ask me?" "No." "Okay, then. Good talk." "One of our best." Man, what terrible communicators, and it's not even all Chuck's fault. Chuck leaves and Lester asks Morgan how it went with Hannah last night. Jeff asks if he took her to pound town. Ew. Morgan would like more research, and Jeff says he told him they still need to study her sleeping patterns. Morgan says not on Hannah. "Research on Chuck." Jeffster!: "Finally."
Ellie and Awesome's. Ellie tells Awesome they got the tickets from Chuck to Paris. They're first class. Awesome says they can't go. They're not free. Nothing is free, and there are strings attached. She asks what strings; this is Chuck? Awesome's like, "Uh, you have to obey me. Yeah, I think that was in our vows. I forbid it." He takes the tickets and heads to Chuck's, giving Morgan a tense hello on his way by. Ellie follows him out, yelling, "You forbid it? Are you kidding me, Devon?!" Morgan asks her if everything's okay, and she says it's not. She thinks Chuck and Devon are keeping a secret from her. Morgan asks if she's suggesting Chuck's caught in a giant web of conspiracy and deception. She knows it sounds ridiculous, but Morgan's like, "I couldn't agree more. Finally someone with some common sense." She says they have to figure it out, and he tells her not to worry: He's got his best men (stalkers) on it.
