Storyline

Chuck is reunited with his long absent father Steve Bartowski, who is none other then Orion, and accepts reluctantly to return for Ellie's wedding but gets a cold welcome from her, unlike gentleman Devon. It turns out software tycoon Ted Roark, who got rich by stealing Steve's brilliant inventions and is about to launch a free operating system, suspect to spread a Fulcrum virus worldwide. Both Bartowskis are to infiltrate Roark Instruents HQ, Chuck as new employee, to prevent the launch for the government and, as their private project, try to remove the Intersect from Chuck's brain. Only Casey ans Sara's protection saves them from worse then double failure. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Right before the beginning of the "NextExpo09", when Ted Roark (Chevy Chase) is greeting the Japanese collaborators, he greets the first in Japanese by saying "Arigato". He then greets the second Japanese collaborator in mock-Japanese, by saying "In-a-gadda-da-vida", the title of an Iron Butterfly's song. See more »

Goofs

Quotes

Steve Bartowski: Granted, I can understand how this might complicate a few things. Come on!
Chuck Bartowski: What? "Complicate a few things?" Dad, I saw you die! I saw you explode in a helicopter.
Steve Bartowski: But I see how I could've given you that impression. I had to die quite a few times. One of the perils of being Orion.

absolutely what i predicted, but still absolutely brilliant!
13 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

wow, what an episode, for once you see a properly emotional performance from Levi, in all the other episodes he's so repetitive but in this Scott bakula's role really supported him in his role.

chuck is always a great show; it has the right amount of drama, action and comedy to balance it but it's like the speed distance time triangle in a sense, with the comedy being on top supporting the other aspects of the show but that usually doesn't matter because it's awesome and in this episode the drama is nailed to the top making this episode one of the best of the series.

now i predicted with the clues they had put in the series that when chuck's dad showed up, he would be orion, and how brilliantly Mr. bakula played it; recluse dad by day- super computer hacker by night.

9/10 for this episode bravo Mr.bakula.
