“They’re having intercourse, idiot.”
– Casey

Way, way back in “Chuck Versus the First Date,” Chuck was about to ask Sarah to go on a Euro-Rail trip with him. But then the Intersect got destroyed and Graham died and Jill came into town and blah blah blah. So, Chuck has been waiting almost two years for this train ride. Ironically, he’s not really sightseeing because he and Sarah are too busy doinking screwing diddling doing filthy things spending quality time with each other.

If you haven’t already, make sure to read the disclaimer.

So, Casey and Morgan are tasked to retrieve the two disgusting lovebirds. (Seriously, Chuck and Sarah, take your faces off each other long enough to have an actual conversation, okay?) Wacky spy hijinks ensue, along with a suitable number of comic misunderstandings. Some Basque terrorists are defeated, Chuck and Sarah get all kissy-kissy and agree to be spies together, and all is right with the world.

I wanted to mention two things in particular. The first is Morgan Grimes. I’m not sure that the writers initially had any clue just how lucky they were to cast as talented a comic actor as Josh Gomez, but this guy does it all, from the physical comedy (deploying “the Morgan” against Juan Diego Arnaldo) to the funny/serious stuff (Morgan’s conversation with Chuck in the café). So, kudos to Gomez.

The other thing that I wanted to mention is this:

Sometimes I think that the Chuck writers just sit in a room together, chugging Red Bull and thinking of the most awesome things that they can come up with:
– “Let’s have Devon teach Chuck how to tango…shirtless!!!”
– “Let’s put Chuck, Sarah, Ellie, Devon, Casey, Morgan, and Anna together for Tnanksgiving and see what happens.” “Yeah! And let’s throw Bryce in there for good measure.”
– “Oh my God, I got so high last night, and I was thinking, what if there was a dormant weapons satellite orbiting the Earth, and the only way to unlock it or shut it down was by beating Missile Command, and Jeff was really good at it, so the CIA got him to play in order to stop World War III?” “Dude, that’s frickin’ awesome! You should get high more often!”
You get the idea. The concept of using one’s girlfriend a human flail/battering ram is also dripping with awesome. I suppose that one could say that it shows a high level of trust between Chuck and Sarah and yadda yadda yadda…but Chuck launches Sarah at bad guys like a weapon. If they’re that good when they’re handcuffed together, imagine how good they are when they’re not.

That’s all I have to say about this episode. I know that this commentary was short compared to the previous two, but I have a lot to say about the season finale, so I’m saving up.
