Best episode of the season - hands down. Also made me appreciate the Morgan storyline. Maybe it was just me, but this had a very "Season 1 feel" to it.

My favorite moments:

- Chuck defusing a bomb (brought me back to the episode where he defused a bomb with a porn website)
- Morgan/Alex scene (I'm not always big on the romance, but I loved Morgan and Alex - I see them being in a relationship again by the finale)
- Morgan gets invited to live with Casey again and he gives him Indiana Jones (but not the last - awful movie - loved the geekiness references in this one)
- The family dinner/Casey arrested reveal

Thoughts/Questions:
- Does anyone else see Sarah and Chuck perhaps "settling down" after it's all said and done. I'm not sure if they hinted at it to tease us or if they're actually going to go that route.
- Frame job (so to speak) on Casey (since it's on record that the hit was off) was a great little twist at the end - can't wait to see how that goes
- Morgan with no more intersect (WOOT!)
- By the way - Jeffster really is ending here - Jeff with sense, however, I'm enjoying. Didn't expect Lester to be arrested - but Jeffster still ended up doing the perfect thing to help an escape and capture of the Viper.

Yeah I really enjoyed this episode too :D

I love that Casey started him on The Phantom Menace when he was still angry, and how he held back Indy 4 when he forgave him. So geeky, and so hilarious! :lol: I like being geeky enough to understand those references :D

Cool twist at the end, they're doing quite well with those recently :)

The dinner scene was, as you say, awesome! I think Morgan and Alex will end up together, or at least I hope they do. Yay for no Morgan intersect.

Although - now there IS no intersect (that we know of?) Do we think it'll come back?

Valid question - and I'm not quite sure it will. I really get the feeling Chuck is leaning towards wanting a normal life. He tried the spy business, he wants to succeed, but I think the more he struggles (and perhaps even as he starts to succeed), the more he's going to realize how nice it would be to just live an average, everyday life with Sarah.

I still bet there's going to be a pregnancy test before the end of the show that will help lead to the settling down - I just feel like a Baby Bartowski will happen one way or another, even if we don't see it. (Ellie's baby is a baby awesome, so it doesn't count).

I think the Intersect may come back in some way with Decker. Maybe Chuck will be able to defeat someone with the Intersect, proving he's a better spy than it is?

A baby Bartowski would be awesome :)

I'd love to see it come that way - only for Chuck to say he doesn't want or need it. That would be the best way to show Chuck truly has grown into who he is.

Yes, sorry, thanks for the heads up, Josh.

First up, even though Decker is obviously evil, Casey, a regular US citizen, murdered 5-6 people. So him going to jail is a touch of realism Chuck doesn't always do, but when it does, it works.

I also like how the Jeff storyline is turning out. If they don't reverse it, I'm quite happy with the show ending with Jeff like this, and hopefully with Lester realizing he has to grow up. That said, I'm willing to bet that Lester and Casey will end in the same prison, which isn't...logical at all, but oh well.

But yeah, best episode of the season so far. The Morgan-Casey relationship is back, no one has the Intersect, and Decker is starting to make his direct moves against Chuck. The season can only go up from here.

The Jeff Storyline is bringing life back to the Buy More for me - here's hoping it continues to get even better.
