"This is exactly why I didn't tell you about my family. You don't know how to love someone, you only know how to control them. But you should know that I could never love a man who would do anything to hurt my son. So drop it. Alexei, you know that I am loyal to you, but I will not return with you until you promise me that my family and their friends will remain safe. And if they don't... I will end you."
Just when you think she's gonna zig. Over the sound of Alexei's evil boner and his many henches loading up, Mom apologizes one more time for how she's always doing this shit, and Chuck finally trusts her, because he finally actually saw her. She is in the impossible position she says she is in, and the only reason for it is that Alexei is a bad guy and Chuck is not. So he forgives his mother and she actually smiles and takes off. (Which, he could have just started flashing right then and it would have worked the same, but I like the way the laptop thing plays out.)
Just as Volkoff's team is getting the bounce order and packing up, Morgan comes running into the room shirtless and akimbo, with his gun taped to his back, and then hilariously flails about trying to grab the gun and do something amazing, but finally he just simmers down and chills out and surrenders to them again. Of course, it doesn't matter, because Alexei already called off the whole thing and got Frost back, but it's gorgeous. And then they put Jeffster back in the closet with their stolen phones and they are crushed beneath the pile of phones and guts everywhere and they never come back.
Chuck hangs with Sarah at the fountain and admits he maybe should have tried being reasonable with Frost instead of being so pissy, and they talk about how she's never coming back until Volkoff's neutralized, and Sarah's like, "Literally she is the only thing keeping us safe right now." Which is a nice thought, isn't it? Like Alexei became momentary Bad Dad in this episode, and instead of being Hamlet's mom, Frost turned out to be the Dark Knight. You know? "I'm just going to keep on being a bad guy, again, so you can live to be a good guy. For the twentieth year in a row." That Frost was the Leftovers all along. But just when you're feeling warm about that, up comes Devon with the saddest hurtest face.
"Not only are you spying again, but you bring it back to our apartment? I had to lie to Ellie about the hospital, and I hate lying." He doesn't even listen to Chuck's explanation -- which I would imagine once you've heard one Agent Frost story you're like, "Nope, don't care, makes my head hurt, she's good she's bad, come with me if you wanna live, I will just assume it worked out in the end" -- and tells him to stop fucking up and bringing spy things around Ellie and their Awesome baby. For real this time. And also, can I remind you that Ellie doesn't want spy stuff around Chuck either, which is sort of her role at this point but still makes basic sense, and then Devon hands him the Roark 7. Like I guess Ellie won't notice that it's gone.
