Episode cast overview, first billed only:


Father Steve 'Orion' Bartowski managed to wipe the Intersect from Chuck's brain, so he resigns from the Buy More, happily followed by Casey, who is promoted colonel and assigned to a mission in Afghanistan. Steve's return promises to make Devon and Ellie's wedding perfect, except for Chuck who learns Sara is also reassigned, paired up with Bryce, the new Intersect. But on the big day, Ted Roark turns up with Fulcrum goons, demanding the Intersect control cube or the wedding will become a bloodbath. Casey's Marine veteran mate Miles turns on their CIA team but spares his life as a return favor. Bryce is in for surprises of his own. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


We learn that Steve Bartowski had invented and tested the original Intersect on himself, saying he did it 20 years ago. This is a nod to Scott Bakula's series, Quantum Leap (1989), which premiered 20 years ago in 1989. Bakula's character, Sam Beckett, was a physicist/computer genius who had tested the Quantum Leap Accelerator he invented, on himself. See more »


Bryce Larkin: The cube can't fall into the wrong hands. I made a promise to Orion.
Chuck Bartowski: You knew.
Bryce Larkin: That was the deal. Your dad knew I protected you at Stanford. I was the only spy he would trust.
Chuck Bartowski: I can't believe you've known this whole time.
Bryce Larkin: He wanted to keep you out of this. But I knew you could handle the Intersect. I knew Sarah would find you. And most importantly, you deserved to know the truth about your father. He's a hero. Now, let's go get your sister married.

in the end, the wedding Ellie really wanted, the best part
7 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

2 more quitting Buy More, Emmett really thinking Chuck hitting on him ?? he really is loony, Chuck is like NO MORE BUY MORE, NO MORE YOU, AND YOU CAN TAKE YOUR FLAG AND YOUR JOB AND SHOVE IT, Casey pokes head in with ditto.

Beckman still wants Chuck as a spy still, (think she wised up ?), Chuck turning her down, as he still don't think he's a spy/annalist...uh wonder what he thinks he has been doing and not the stuff with the CIA but his own figuring out of things, (the back of his poster), even with other things, not taken into account on those missions, including when he and Sarah took off to rescue his dad...

Poor Chuck, thinking he is loosing Sarah to Bryce, again. Looking for place to collect himself before the wedding is to start, runs into Ted after discovering bodies. The so called "politeness" of Ted before the threat of blood bath if Chuck don't do what told to do, calls the number left by Casey, then stammering to Morgan who was going to talk to him, that its the rings he has to go home to get, to pull Sarah aside and tell her what he said (she knows he has the rings), Ellie will kill him, 20 mins before its to start, so Morgan comes up with way to stall, he take blame, Jeffster, Chuck "touched". Morgan tells Sarah (funny stuff with Devon's dad), her face "says" it all, total agreement, any means at all to stall.

Cant find Chuck, an the blond one gone too said by Devon's mom, Honey to Woody and Steven, Steven, hearing this knows somethings wrong, Devon, might suspect a bit but hasn't had it "hit" him yet, oh ya the Bartowski's weird family according to Woody. Sarah and Steven talking, she telling Ted and men in the "dinning area" of the place, Steven to check if more as she thinks of something, do love the "computer thing" on Steven's arm as he gives her directions.

Morgan on stage intro for Jeffster, though all confused, but love that when Morgan tells Devon for reasons cant tell, am saving Chuck, so quickly registers with Devon, he oh OK I with you (bit more funny stuff going on), but Devon now OK with delay and will tell his parents something like that. The music, least loud (can he/they really sing ?), to cover up all that will/is happening in another room. The 8 knives, 1 gun (Bryce) and Fulcrum really want Chuck dead, Casey and Crew literately crashing into room, glass breaking, guns firing, well they "win" with Steven finally after 20yrs knocking out Ted and the sprinklers go off thanks to Jeffster and this wedding in ruins.

Chuck really ain't "normal", uses the $ given by gov to give his sis her dream wedding, after saying he wants to be normal and safe his sis in normal ways, not save sis (all) with a special forces team, using his $ and Sarah/gov to pull dream wedding off is not normal, he just kinda smiles.

As wedding is going on, Bryce spying on it (he "dead" cant be seen), talks to Sarah, she not going with him, she shakes head no, he sees how she feels about Chuck. Meanwhile back at Castle, bye bye Ted, shot by someone part of diff group more powerful than Fulcrum, 1st mention The Ring, though not right then, and all but Casey (owes Casey why not killing him) but everyone else dead.

Their courtyard reception, Ellie thanking Chuck for the wedding, was his present not real super powers, Morgan and Chuck talking following dreams, Bryce taking chances, there talking to Steven, (we find out he really was being a friend to Chuck, even with the kicking out of), Steven "flashing" on the 1 picking up Bryce, he not a good guy, will need help. Sarah leaves an Chuck will follow, after his dad says let her go, Chuck actually says he loves her, Steven takes off his arm comp, gives to Chuck saying cant go after you, so now he is taking over part for his dad, with Be Safe Son. Says he is going to Casey and Sarah as he is a Bartowski shows arm comp, he can help them, they know it.

Bryce shot, Casey an Sarah shoot out, Chuck finds way into Intersect room with Bryce, says Sarah and Casey need help, but Bryce really cant, he dying, has way to destroy intersect, gives to Chuck so he can, but Chuck "uploads" himself before destroying, does not fall over (which is another reason don't think was completely taking away by what his dad did, typed enough here will type more in another why I think this), destroyed just before the others, ring agents "won" bringing in Casey and Sarah, with them not happy its destroyed, go to kill see something in Chucks eyes, know he uploaded, bonus Kung fu and kicks all their buts with a shocked Casey and Sarah standing there stunned, they don't help and he don't need help...Chuck realizing he is a spy/hero.

Left ya hanging season ending, least when aired on TV but love owning these on DVD/blue-ray or watching online
