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

Goofs

During the ending scene, the song 'Daddy's Gone' by Glasvegas is playing, and the line 'Be as fucking insincere as you can' can be heard in the background. The swearing is not blanked out or changed. See more »

Quotes

Steve Bartowski: Now punch in the code, or we'll both be a little dead.
Chuck Bartowski: No, dad. You don't understand. It doesn't work like that. Unless it's up here. I can't do it.
Steve Bartowski: Yes you can. I designed that computer in your head, son. Flash, and it'll be the last thing you ever have to flash on.

Fun, dramatic, thoroughly entertaining
23 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

Pretty sure this is my favorite episode of "Chuck", which is saying something since it's been such a great season. It's just filled with such promise, on all fronts; Chuck lands his dream job, tracks down his father for Ellie's wedding, actually figures out who Orion is, and even gets teased with the prospect of once and for all freeing his mind of the Intersect. It's like everything that's been building so far is about to be paid off and it's not even the season finale. The whole thing's a roller-coaster in the most satisfying way, and it still ends on a down note. Remarkable stuff.

And during all of this, Zachary Levi gets to play the hell out of Chuck's pent-up anxieties. He goes toe-to-toe with a great performance from Scott Bakula.

This is where the show fires on all cylinders.

9/10
