In Casey's apartment, which is totally empty, he works to restore his bonsai tree as Chuck works to pump him up. He tells him this place will be great for civilian life. And I can't disagree: It's a great apartment. Chuck points out his nice chair. Then he gets serious and tells him he can still go back. Casey says the general made the dismissal terms crystal clear. Chuck gives Casey the mall photos and says he was talking about Kathleen, who lives right around here, with Casey's daughter. Casey tells Chuck he made his decision between love and love of country a long time ago, and it was the right one for him. He tells Chuck he has to make the right decision for himself, that Walker's a good woman, and it's still not too late. Chuck looks like he's considering it. Then it cuts to Sarah in a cab. The driver asks if she's from this area and she says no. Then Yvonne's adorable Australian accent slips in as she tells him she's thinking of moving here.
Next week: A substitute recapper will guide you as Chuck tells Sarah she'll miss him in D.C. Casey works at the Buy More and nothing but the Buy More. Chuck has to complete a mission to be a spy, and if he fails he won't be one anymore. Chuck says if he passes, he and Sarah can be together and they lean in for a kiss. The final piece of his mission is to kill someone. He doesn't know if he can, then he points a gun at the guy and seems to have second thoughts. Enjoy! I'll be off on spy missions for the next couple episodes.
Has the show stretched the Chuck/Sarah storyline to the breaking point?
