Chuck's downing Johnny Walker at his place, depressed. Sarah and Casey are watching at Castle. Casey says he's growing up, and asks Sarah if she ever thought he'd be able to burn an asset when they first met. She says no, and Casey says, "He's turning into a spy. It's a good thing." He leaves, and she asks herself, quietly, "Is it?" Then we flash back to Sarah's end of that scene from three years ago. She asks someone on the phone if they think this kid's got the Intersect. The man on the other end tells her he's connected to Bryce Larkin. She asks, "Weaknesses?" And the man says, "Bright, but an underachiever. Lonely. Had his heart broken recently." Then the guy sends the picture to Sarah's phone. She looks at it, finds Chuck, and says, "Piece of cake." She walks forward as we get more "Vicki Vale. Vick, Vicki Vale."
Next week: An accented guy thinks Chuck's a real Casanova, playing Sarah and Hannah. Then the guy holds Hannah hostage, and Chuck accidentally detonates a nerve gas bomb or something. And then no more Chuck until after the Olympics. Sad.
Has the show stretched the Chuck/Sarah storyline to the breaking point?
