Awesome shows up at Chuck's and asks him to help Ellie commit to Doctors Without Borders. They both thought she did, but Awesome says it must have hit her that it meant leaving Chuck. She knocks and Awesome runs out. She comes in and tells Chuck she got into some prestigious neurology fellowship at USC that she's wanted since middle school. Uh, yeah right. Like a middle-schooler has ever wanted that. She tells him that Doctors Without Borders is the only thing Devon's been excited about in weeks, though. Casey pages Chuck to come to Castle, but not breathe a word of his secret. Chuck tells Ellie that sometimes your dream job isn't always what you expect, and I don't know about Ellie, but I have no idea what he's trying to tell her with that.
Castle. General Redhead tells them that their mission at the CIA facility was a day too late, because a pill called Laudinol that makes people fearless was stolen. Chuck wonders if it would help him flash, and Sarah says it would, but he wouldn't feel anything. He says at least he would "work," and I don't get where this depression and self-loathing is coming from, since it's very anti-Chuck. Anyway, General Redhead tells him which vault the pill was stolen from, and Chuck starts laughing and says they're very good, what with testing him and all. Amused, he says, yes, he saw Casey take the pill. Casey growls at him, and General Redhead asks if he's sure. Chuck says he is, but then Casey growls more, and Chuck's like, "No? No." He tries to say it was poorly lit and he's often wrong, but it's too late, and Casey pleads the Fifth. So he's forced to put his gun on the table and Sarah's forced to take him into custody. She asks John if he wants to tell her what's up, but he doesn't.
Buy More. Morgan's working when Chuck asks for his help on a spy-related mission. He asks if he happened to record Casey's conversation last night. Morgan says that would depend on if it would get him into trouble or not. But Chuck says he needs it, and Morgan says yeah, he recorded it: audio and video. They watch it in Morgan's "office" on his phone, and all the "audio" is Morgan spouting off ridiculous lines about the smells in the air and chewing carrots. Fortunately, Chuck flashes on Robert Patrick, who he sees is a former colonel dishonorably discharged. Morgan asks what, but Chuck won't tell him details. Meanwhile, back at Casey's, they're ransacking the place. Sarah asks them to show some respect for one of the best that we have. Chuck shows up and tells her that Casey's being played by his old commanding officer, who turned Casey's former sensei, because he's a member of the Ring. Chuck wants to convince Casey, but Sarah says he's being moved to Thailand tomorrow and if they break him out, they could get in trouble for treason. Chuck's in because it's Casey, which is just what Sarah was hoping he'd say.
