Chuck is finally ready to be accredited as special agent. His hesitation to commit for life subsides when he's allowed to pick a team for his new posting, three years in Rome posing as a millionaire. To his horror, Sara prefers to go to DC with Shaw, believing his red test proves him a killer, no longer the man she fell for, and telling the truth would betray life-savior Casey. The Ring director set a trap for Shaw, who thinks he volunteers to sacrifice his life to wipe out the LA ring HQ, but is actually motivated to defect. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


In the Ring headquarters, a flash-bang sort of stuns Chuck. The device we see is a 'TD Multi-Port Plus' one of the most powerful stun grenades, using 15 g. of flash powder. It is also rechargable. See more »


Brigadier General Beckman commits a number of uniform errors: 1) She wears her ribbons in the wrong order. She displays the Global War on Terror Expeditionary Medal and the Global War on Terror Sevice Medal at a lower order of precedence than the Kuwait Liberation Medal (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) and the Kuwait Liberation Medal (Government of Kuwait). United States Military Awards are always given higher precedence than foreign military awards on any US Military uniform. She also wears the Humanitarian Service Medal ahead of her Global War on Terror Medals. This medal is of lower precedence than any of her campaign medals. 2) She wears her service jacket with the tab of the left epaulet over her collar. The tab is always tucked under the collar.

Chuck Bartowski: It just finally clicked for me. You know, Sarah is - is the most important thing. I mean what's the point of being a spy without her. I've got to win her back. And I've only got a small window to do it before I have to leave for Rome.

The Fall of a Hero
7 January 2013 | by rommedahl-0603See all my reviews

This episode is the symbol of all that I love about "Chuck", and it had me glued to the screen from start to finish.

The episodes starts off with some of Chuck's wonderful awkwardness as he is at the headquarters in DC to meet with the general. Then it switches to his heartbreaking and seemingly impossible mission to get Sarah back. And it ends with a painful cliffhanger. Perfect!

The character development of Shaw was inevitable, but still heartbreaking as my feelings towards him is mixed (I mean, he stole Sarah for Christ's sake!). All in all a very emotional episode that sets off a story line that I am looking much forward to dig in to.
