Bale asks Chuck what he was thinking getting his friends out safe but staying behind. Chuck says he was actually thinking fast. On the video, he tells them to hit a button on the control panel. The lights go out in Bale's compound, confusing things long enough for Chuck to run for it. On the video, he tells Morgan to disconnect the van from Bale's electrical line, Casey to get the van moving, and for Sarah to direct Casey to the east side of the building, where there's a large window Chuck's going to have to jump through. Sarah tells Casey where to go. Inside, Chuck runs and runs, with Bale's men in pursuit, firing at him when they can. Chuck video: "And, Sarah, no matter what happens, I love you." The van pulls up just as he jumps from the window. He's at least four stories up, but lands on the van. His video asks them to please check to make sure he's alive on the roof of the van. He is okay somehow, so they speed away.
At Castle, Chuck tells the team not to get down, since they all made it out alive, at least. Plus, Bale was arrested, so Chuck thinks that should go in the win category. Or win with an asterisk maybe. Sarah and Casey fill Chuck in on why they're so glum: When Decker froze Bale's accounts, that included the money they transferred in, which led back to the account they transferred from. That means all of their assets are frozen, except for Castle (which, hello?! Decker KNOWS ABOUT. If he's the Big Bad, should they really be right where he knows they are) and the Buy More. Morgan tells them they're still a team and they still have the Buy More. But Chuck needs some air. Sarah follows him out and tells him they'll bounce back, just like always. He tells her he'll be back.
But she follows him and finds him standing outside her dream house. She says he found it, and wonders what's wrong. He says he can't afford it now. If he'd bought it with their fortune yesterday, they'd own it, but now it's too late. He apologizes, but she says it's okay. They didn't get married because they thought life would be easy. They work through things together. He asks how, though, and she says they'll get new clients and missions, and they still have Castle and the Buy More. It dawns on Chuck that they need to use the Buy More's profits to support Carmichael Industries. But in order for that to work, the store has to turn a profit. They agree they can do that. But Chuck wonders about him. With Casey and Sarah super-spies and Morgan the Intersect, what's his role? She tells him he's their leader. And he somehow sort of is, which is great. Especially when you remember how scared he was back in the beginning.
