was the intersect really...
6 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

We have the second story happening at Buy More, Emmett, really don't like, and what he did to big Mike and Morgan, OK all the others too, was beyond low, where if the show had more of him would have pulled it down, so glad they had the character shot in the head.

Love the first real kiss between Chuck and Sarah, and the note, but at least they are starting though will take a while before they get to this "spot" again with all they go through in coming epis.

Devon finds out chuck has been working with the government with a gun pointed at him by Casey, said gun kicked out of hand by Sarah and Chuck coming in. Think he can handle, not easily but will. Funny though Casey really feeling left out when they tie him to the chair, when catches up with them shocks them with saying so, as they thought he was breaking his word about the rescue of Steven.

They are. seem to rescue, but end up caught as Chuck doesn't stay in car, but of course Ted was going to find them and kill them despite what he told Steven, and the rebuild, well not what Ted wanted, was to "remove" it from son...but he was looking at too, so as Chuck says he feels diff and lighter, think was repressing and removing the bad out of it from the what I think of as 5 "uploads" (the 1 as a child not seen on show yet), so don't think it really gone as we learn Steven has 1 too and it would have removed his then too but he has learned most times how to use and control it.

Funny way Morgan quits Buy More, homage to certain movie(s), and "sticking it" to Emmett by "rubbing in his face" he don't control Morgan anymore...

Chuck "done" with CIA/NSA anything government, Casey with his promotion and Sarah not fired.

Chuck really wasn't trying to let his sister down, so love the way he comes home and Ellie is like what/where were/are you, Chuck getting your wedding present, opening door wider and enter Steven, their dad...

Happy ending Fulcrum dealt severe blow...But Ted, alive, coming to get them...
