Chuck Bartowski: [picking up some sunglasses] Hey, uh, Bryce. You forgot your glasses.
Bryce Larkin: You keep 'em. If you're gonna be a real spy, you're gonna need them.
Chuck Bartowski: [chuckles] I don't - I don't wanna be a real spy.
[hands the glasses back to Bryce]
Bryce Larkin: From what I've seen, it's a little too late for that, Chuck. I'm sure you hate me right now, but someday you're gonna realize I was looking out for you. I have been all along.

starting to see a bit of a "new real" Sarah
25 April 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Bryce is back, not good news for Chuck, his face expression (OK we did see it end of last epi but) the way his happiness "falls" away almost could make one weep (tear, OK done). Chuck explaining to Ellie and Devon about "the ex" being back, Devon, love his "support speech". Chuck, "wishful" watching of his sis and her fiancé shows both happiness and sadness. Power hungry Lester, what a coward (do kinda like him and Jeff, strange as they are together, but not, as they are not a couple, although do like them better together, as in the end they really are true friends),but to "demand" Morgan deal with bullies, (he does ?!? did/does surprise me), and do love that one of the bullies is Micheal Strahan, cracked me up.

Didn't really like they way Beckman puts chuck down, kinda understand but still, "real spy" Bryce, yet still Chuck part of mission, but jealousy... Chuck over filling glass, his then dropping bottle, kicked out, "flashing" on target as being dragged out, getting back in to actually see who he flashed on, gun to head by target, rescued, Sarah gets hurt.

Ellie and Devon "see" ex (well Ellie from the back when she going to ask Sarah to be her maid of honor and then from bit of distance, cap pulled low, well he is suppose to be dead), Devon goes up, sees cut and manages to move him away from hospital hall outside Sarah's room with the gotta look after infected cut, do like the Devon talk with ex, (he didn't ask name).

Sarah not taking shot, Bryce more or less shocked she didn't, she has/did and would have, past relationship with him. Chucks plan, worked, more or less, better than start of mission (original), Casey getting money back from the hired hands, the money "meant" for Von Hayes (the one used to find target), the target, (she called agent ?)

"The bullies" stayed "gone for the day" after bribe from Morgan, next day, again took over theater/game room to get more "free" stuff, but this time, more hear esp Anna (Morgans on/off gf), Morgan pours pop/soda/drink on MS head, Anna (all) get Morgan to fight, but its Anna who comes in with camera tri stands (uh what ever they called) and "he don't fight girls" shes like neither do I. Wow, she is good, has Casey get his phone out to do a check on her for poss field work, Chuck over hearing looks at him shaking head NO, good thing nothing came of that...

Last, Bryce confronting Chuck about Sarah, and what to do, Bryce says "you'll do the right thing you always do, its why I sent Intersect to you, and sometime you will know I have always been looking out for you" (most words there, might be off a bit), leaves glasses behind, Chuck points out to return, is told needs them, be real spy, Chuck says no...Sarah Chuck talk, Chuck knows both know his feelings, and all but "breaks up" with her, his way to protect her and also he doesn't know anything about her life/past, also no normal (she don't let on she really hurting over "break up"), Fake smiles up/on, (uh action) into Chucks home to share "happiness" as she was asked to be part of wedding. Bryce, leaves glasses in Chucks bedroom with note for a real spy, RELOAD/UPGRADE/TWEAK (whatever you call it) and this makes it the 2 time seen so far on show but 3rd time, as a child had 1st one in his life.
