Chuck continues looking for Orion, and his search eventually leads Orion to find him. Fulcrum agent Vincent (aka The Mummy) also finds Chuck, and Chuck's slightly less excited about this. Turns out Fulcrum and Agent Redhead are both looking for Orion; the government is tricking Chuck into leading him to Orion. He does, but Fulcrum gets there first, and nabs Orion. Orion sends a big plane/weapon to kill himself so that he won't have to be in Fulcrum's hands. Bad news for Chuck, except that Orion left him a secret package, including a disc and some blueprints for Fulcrum's new Intersect. On the disc, computerized Orion told Chuck not to tell anyone, but to search for Fulcrum's new Intersect, which is the only way he'll be able to get that pesky one stuck in his head out. Sarah shows up, and Chuck tells her he trusts her, but he doesn't mention anything about his new knowledge. Oh, and we get to see Agent Redhead in person (she's tiny!), since she comes to visit, telling Chuck he needs to actually step up and admit he's a spy, since he's gotten them closer to Fulcrum than anyone else ever has.
The Buy More plotline involves a war between the Burbank and Beverly Hills stores. There's some slight crossover when Jeff and Lester steal Chuck's computer from Orion, and almost get themselves and then the Beverly Hills store blown up. Chuck stops them just in time, but then Big Mike takes the computer, thinking it's a fancy new laptop the Buy More will sell. When it's stolen (by Fulcrum), the Buy More crew blames the Beverly Hills store, and they retaliate by breaking in and vandalizing the opposing store. It's silly and adds nothing, especially when the stakes are so high in the primary storyline.
Chuck, Sarah, and Casey are all dressed in jumpsuits as they walk into the courtyard at Chuck's apartment. Chuck would like to vote that they never do actual plumbing on any future missions, and Sarah seconds that motion. Casey accuses Sarah of going soft, but then says, "Whatever," since they got the intel Agent Redhead wanted. He holds up a plastic bag with something in it. Sarah asks Chuck if he needs to change at Casey's, but he tells her Ellie and Awesome are out of town so he can shower at their place. So, apparently, he is living with Sarah? Or pretending to? He asks Sarah if she's heard anything from Agent Redhead about Orion, but Sarah tells him that these things take time. He asks if Agent Redhead asks how important it is, since finding Orion could mean Chuck could get the secrets out of his head and go back to his old life. Chuck asks if that's what Sarah wants, too, and she says of course she does. She tells Chuck to leave the search for Orion up to everyone else; that he should get some sleep.
Cut to Chuck's room, where he's doing some sort of automated search, because he himself is apparently a brilliant analyst. He has the back of his Tron poster at the ready. He's on a laptop, but the webcam comes on on the computer behind him, so he turns around and wonders why it's on. Someone's looking at him through the computer. We head to the place where said person is sitting and typing something into a panel on his arm. No, really. We don't see his face, but he hears a commotion. By the time a group of guys in dark suits storms in, the room's empty. The head dark suit, who is also The Mummy, says to alert Fulcrum that Orion's gone. The computer asks if he wants a drink since it's been a hard day for Fulcrum and it's going to get worse. The place starts shaking and we see a bright light as The Mummy backs out of the room.
The white turns into a heavily toilet-papered Buy More. Lester thinks the bright side is that he doesn't have to buy toilet paper for awhile. Jeff's all, "Why start now?" They wonder who did this until a jerk walks in and comments on someone finally cleaning up the store. It's "Assistant Manager Barclay," from the Beverly Hills Buy More. He and his Buy More cronies are more preppie because their green shirts are V-neck sweaters, and they all have white collared shirts underneath. Nice touch. Chuck calls Barclay "Bar-Clay," and asks if they did this. They admit nothing, though they think that being in Burbank is sort of a crime. Big Mike and Buster Bluth come in, and explain that Barclay's upset that this store is getting some new laptop first. Like this is really the type of thing Buy More employees care about it. It's really not. Barclay and his cronies leave, and Big Mike tells his guys there will be no retaliations. Then he yells at them to clean this place up.
