I absolutely LOVED last night's Chuck episode - the way Chuck beat Volkov using Orion's technology and playing on Volkov's obsession with Frost was pleasing to me - he didn't even have to rely on the intersect or his partners (although they helped of course). Jeffster showing up at big moments may be getting a little old but I still laughed pretty heartily at it. I find it interesting that this mid-season "finale" was really made possible by the fact that the show was only signed up for a 13 episode season but when the additional 11 were ordered they just decided to do two different story arcs - not the fist time they have done so on this show! I like it because instead of dragging a story line out (nobody would want to see Casey in a hospital bed more than one week IMO) we get to see an additional "short story" carried out in the same season, and probably an additional high-quality "finale". Was I the only one who thought the person polishing the floors at the end was going to end up being a bad guy and ruin the proposal? Anyone upset they didn't get to really hear the proposal? I thought it was a nice touch and a great way to end the episode. I wonder if brunette Sarah will make any further appearances or if she'll be back to full-time blonde. I like both as long as she keeps kicking butt and loving Chuck! On a side note, does anyone else notice that Chuck almost never flashes anymore?? Next week we get the return of Roan Montgomery (John Larroquette)!!
