He quickly realizes what he has to do, though, and goes to destroy the Intersect. But he looks at the screen, which says, "Do you wish to activate." He thinks a minute -- flashing on wondering why Bryce chose him, Sarah telling him he can do anything, Bryce not wanting Chuck to be a spy at Stanford, General Redhead telling Chuck to become a spy, himself saying he's not a hero, Sarah telling him he is that guy just moments earlier -- before deciding to hit "Activate." The whole room flashes with images as he's uploaded with the fancy new Intersect. The room's white again, and Chuck stumbles a little, but doesn't pass out. I think he's getting stronger. He uses the device to destroy the Intersect.
Just in time, because Casey's rogue guy comes in and asks what Chuck did. Chuck doesn't flash or anything, but says he destroyed it, so they're too late. Sarah and Casey are led in, captured. Sarah freaks out, "Bryce!" And, "Don't you touch him!" as the bad guys drag Bryce out. Casey tells them they lose, since the Intersect is destroyed. Rogue tells them that "No one stops us. No one ever has." Sarah asks who he is, and he says, "Spies, Agent Walker. The best." Chuck has a flash of images, and one of the guys guarding Chuck tells their boss to look at this. Sarah asks if he just flashed, and Rogue says, "He uploaded it." Casey: "Oh, Chuck me." Rogue tells them to kill him, but Chuck kung fus all their guns away and then smiles like it's a joke. Then he does big, super-high flips in the air, and then kung fus them all to what looks like death, as Casey and Sarah watch on in amazement. Casey: "Uh?" Sarah: "Chuck?" Chuck: "Guys, I know kung fu." Title cards: "To be continued..." Well, let's hope.
Although, I think if the show ends this way, it's actually not that bad, because Chuck got to be a hero, even though Bryce was a bigger one. And part of me doesn't want to see more of the silliness of Chuck being a kung-fu master. But I would still take this back over almost everything else on TV, because I love it so much. It's been such a great season, and I really believe they have good things in store for us that won't always look like such a big, jokey cartoon.
