The little guy's snooping around Castle, dropping to the floor and scooting along until he sees and hears the suits discuss how they're going to find all of the information the CIA has on them, and then "blow this base sky-high." Morgan, clearly shocked, covers his mouth. At the hotel, Sarah wonders why the Ring would lure them here, and Agent Superman says it's where they lured them from -- his base of operations, so they could go in looking for all the intelligence they have. Sarah immediately thinks of Chuck (BECAUSE SHE LOVES HIM), saying Chuck's in there and not flashing, making him a sitting duck (and the "duck" theme begins). They all take off running. Chuck's heading to the back room at the Buy More when Morgan runs into him. They have the best conversation in their history:
They both say they have to talk, over the top of each other, and Morgan says, "Hey, me first. Trust me, whatever you're going to say is nothing compared to what I got." Chuck: "Okay. Fine, yeah, please shoot." Morgan: "Okay, dude. There's a secret underground CIA base under our Buy More." Chuck's in shock, which Morgan misreads, so he says, "I know. Hey, listen, I know it sounds crazy, but you have to believe me here. These people who are claiming to buy the store? They're bad guys. They call themselves the Ring. Which I know is not that scary, but trust me, these guys are not to be messed with." Chuck asks how Morgan knows all this, and Morgan explains how he hid and watched them enter the base through the lockers. He says he followed them and heard and saw everything. Chuck looks even more shocked, and Morgan, "Hey, woah, woah! Dude. Listen, I know this is a lot for you to handle, but you've gotta stay with me. You've got to pull it together, because we are now in real danger here. Okay? Buddy... don't freak out." Chuck gives an awkward half-smile that is the low point of the episode for me. But if one facial expression is the only weak moment in an episode, that's not much of a complaint, is it?
As Agent Superman drives them back, Sarah and Casey both try calling and can't get through to Chuck's cell or the Buy More's land line. They figure out that the Ring must be jamming the signals or something. Casey growls. At the Buy More, Morgan wants to call the police, so Chuck pulls out his phone and says he doesn't have a signal. Morgan says it makes sense the bad guys would cut off all communication to the store, so they have to handle this themselves. Chuck says they don't need to do anything, but get everyone out of the store. Morgan says they're Buy More's -- America's last line of defense and they're going to take the last fight to them. Chuck points out this isn't a video game, so Morgan says he knows not everyone's a hero, so he'll ask Jeffster! instead (because they are known for heroics?) Chuck says fine, he'll do it, but only if Morgan helps him get everyone out first and what Morgan's told him remains a secret. Morgan loves having a secret between just the two of them, so he's totally down. But they find Jeffster!, Big Mike, and the rest of BuyMoria putting everything in front of the door to lock down the store and keep the suits from firing them. Chuck tries to talk some sense into them, but look who he's talking to. Big Mike gives a Braveheart speech about how they can take their dignity and all the hot women, but they cannot take our jobs and they will never take our store. He plants a flag and they reenact Iwo Jima on top of the pile of stuff they're stacking -- complete with a photo and everything.
