Storyline

After his Internet upgrade, Chuck agreed to start full CIA spy training int Prague, but first reneges on a secret agreement with Sara to run away from it to start a 'real life' with her, then fails the graduate after six months. Totally disheartened, he becomes a couch potato at Ellie's, barely interested when Morgan returns from his Hawaiian sushi chef training. Chuck is humiliated when found out as shabby Buy More client by Emmet, but discovers Sara is back in the bunker there. Even Casey can't watch how cold-heartedly the scorned vamp ignores her lover, yet loses that sympathy when Chuck flashes at a hit-man but fails to show he's actually there, so it seems he messed up six months of preparation. Yet Chuck's luck turns. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

When Chuck and Sarah are in the shootout toward the end, trapped on top of the building before they use a zip-line to escape, Sarah is shooting at the guys on the ground and her gun is clearly seen running out of ammo, with the slide locking back out of battery. However, three more shots are heard firing from her gun followed by her telling Chuck she's almost out of ammo. See more »

Not Really that impressed by this episode
6 September 2010 | by (Albania) – See all my reviews

So the episode starts with Chuck in a middle of a room, and he is being kept hostage by a Russian guy named Yuri. Yuri threatens Chuck, and Chuck gets a flash like he should beat up Yuri. Chuck grabs Yuri's gun unexpectedly and wants to shoot him. Then we find out, its all practice, and Yuri worked for the CIA. Chuck didn't pass the practice so General Beckman fires him.

Then we see Chucks flashback, 6 months earlier. Sarah had offered him to run away with him.

Then 6 months later again, we see an unshaven Chuck. He is in a very bad condition, and does the same thing over and over again. One day he runs out of Cheese Puffs, and goes to the Buy More where he gets teased by Emit. Chuck is really close to beating him up (As He now knows KUNG FU) but resists. Then Chuck meets The Jeffsters, and they tell him how they see Sarah everyday. Chuck is Surprised because he thought Sarah was gone. He goes to the Yogurt shop, but there he finds Casey. Casey asks him what he is doing there, and Chuck says that he "forgot" his coat in the castle. When he goes down there, he finds out that Casey has kept contact with Sarah. Casey does not tell him anything, but overhears Casey talking to Sarah about where their next mission is going to be. Chuck goes to the place, and begs Casey and Sarah to accept him as a spy. However at first they refuse. They ask him to go.

I cannot write the whole episode, but all in all this was not a great episode. There we some holes in it and some things were unclear.
