As the car drives away, Chuck gets a call from Hartley, who apologizes for missing the party, but he says they sent a little gift. "Just a little something for my best friend's son and his bride. Be wise with it, Charles." Aww. I'm going to miss Volkoff/Hartley. Chuck pulls an envelope out from under his seat, and he and Sarah look at it in shock.
Two Weeks Later. Buy More. Chuck shows up in his Nerd Herd outfit. Jeffster! are manning the Nerd Herd station, though. They tell Chuck that the Buy More's been sold, and they're sure they'll all be jobless within a week. A customer comes up and Lester says, "Leave us alone. Private conversation." Chuck tells them to give it a little time, then leaves. Big Mike yells at them to get to work, since the new owner might stop by today. Chuck heads down to Castle, which is totally empty except for one box. The TV monitor comes on. It's Decker, who tells Chuck it's "the dawn of a new chapter, eh, boy?" Chuck tells him to watch the "boy" talk. Decker says the box is full of his personal effects, from General Redhead. "Wouldn't want you to be without your pocket protector." Chuck says he'd rather wear it than be in business with Decker.
This next part is important (I think. I hope), so I'll try not to miss anything. Decker: "You really think you've been fighting evil? Doing good? You're just a pawn. You always were." Chuck asks what he's talking about. Decker: "You think it was all a coincidence? The Intersect? Fulcrum? The Ring? Shaw? Agent X? It was all just part of the plan, Bartowski. Pieces on the puzzle board. See you never, Bartowski." Chuck asks him to wait and asks what plan. "My life was changed forever. My friends were put in danger. My family -- My father was killed, Decker." Decker gives his best toothy evil villain laugh. Then he shuts himself off, leaving static. Which we all know wouldn't happen on a TV that fancy. It would be a blue screen.
Still in Castle later, Casey, Sarah, Chuck, and Morgan wonder who could be the puppet master. (God, what if the evil laugh right as he said his father was killed means the puppet master is Stephen J. "Bakula" Bartowski? I would be happy to see him and so angry at the show for making him a villain. Don't do it, Schwartz.) Casey says it doesn't matter anyway, since the CIA fired them all. Chuck says okay, and asks what if they went into business themselves. Casey asks who, and Sarah says they have a base (empty Castle) and the Buy More's proven to be an excellent cover (excellent? Really? How many times have bad guys found it?!) Morgan says there's just one problem: The Buy More sold. Chuck says they know; they bought it. With the $877 million Hartley gave them as a wedding gift: all of the assets of Volkoff Industries. Chuck prefers to think of it as a cool billion, because it's fun to say. He says their first purchase was the Buy More and everything below it. And now they have all of Volkoff's resources at their disposal. They ask if Casey and Morgan still want to take on bad guys. Casey: "Hell yeah." Morgan: "Hells yeah." Chuck says they've bought a Gulf Stream, but still need to re-outfit Castle. So, any ideas? He, Casey, and Sarah walk away as Morgan marvels about being freelance spies. He basically writes himself his own little fan fiction about them. Then he notices a pair of sunglasses in Chuck's box of effects. He picks them up -- slick new shades for a slick new gig. We see a note under them that says they're for Chuck from General Redhead. He wonders what could go wrong, then puts on the glasses. He gets Intersected, and falls over. Still lying down, he opens his eyes: "Guys, I know kung fu."
