Chuck Bartowski: You took a chance. You-you loved someone, maybe for the first time in your life, all you've ever done before is-is shut off your feelings. You - you bury them deep down inside. Because in your profession, in your line of work, it's a liability, right? It's - it - it can certainly be a liability. And I know, I know that you think you messed up your life because you opened up your heart. But maybe you helped open up her heart in the process. Maybe because you loved her. She's learned how to love ...

"house warming party", like that will go well...
3 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Carina is back, and really Morgan, he thinks she knows or remembers him?!?, uh right not this well till Morgan becomes more of himself, comfortable in his life, and more sure of who he is, but not there yet. But Jeff an Lester, really they are not, just NOT, but do get Morgan to agree to a house warming, and how many of those really go all that well esp thinking of this show, actually thats what so funny about it...

The fake engagement and party, well on Carina's part, and the invite to it so Chuck can flash and get case and Casey, indignant to play "father", too funny, but well the "uncle" who was "very much younger than big bro who had Carina", his "speech" and the "flash" and Chuck, his moves to get case, only to set of alarm in the end, yup saw that coming but funny. Locked in, his speech to Sarah, so sweet, and of course recorded so the baddies could hear.

Well it seems Morgan is starting to come into himself at the house warm party, uh interesting middle name, least for someone who has hard enough time pronouncing a lot of names (me), and "standing up to" well he thinks Carina, as she is a "hostage" for the baddies, and well not knowing he is really doing something wrong gives back the case that Chuck "stole" in the first place, my house, you leave, "bounce",and no words for no in Japanese, over 700 for yes, and says sayanora and give this to Chuck yourself, course the only no he hears is Carina's but love the plural NO's, as he then picks up last drink brought in by Jeff and Lester which Carina "spiked", has some while still telling them to get out and passes out(yup even Lester passed out).

"Caution, angry neighbor! do not smile at", Casey "the button" and he really enjoys "firing" the hose at the partiers, who actually do leave, and course just in time as the baddies and Carina "leave" not recognizing the "uncle" at first. Chuck saving the day, no guns for him, just "flame thrower" and he then "sits" back while Casey and Sarah fight 3 of the 4 baddies, and the one who was fake engaged to Carina, Karl, well his heart has been broken by her, so Chuck has a "speech" for well mainly Sarah but Karl too, but course Carina fakes the fake feelings and the knocks Karl out, "SPY'S DO NOT FALL IN LOVE", a rule, the 1st rule, huh. But she sees that Sarah has, even if Sarah don't know it and has told Chuck that "the girl is in love with him".

Morgan "gets" the girl, and Sarah decides that staying is best, not surprising Carina who leaves behind recording of what Chuck was saying while locked in vault, again, "speech sweet".
