Rundown: Episode 16, "Chuck vs. The Lethal Weapon"

Wow, this week's Chuck is jam-packed with action and revelations, including a few moments that may forever change the way we look at Chuck Bartowski. Ever since he became the Intersect, Chuck's been serving on missions at the government's request - but now he's got some more personal matters to attend to, so to chat about the goings-on, just read more.

The scene I can't get out of my head is Chuck staring at his giant chart on the back of his Tron poster, trying to piece together the connections between Fulcrum and the government and the computer in his brain. Our Bartowski isn't just a hapless nerd, after all! This whole time, he's been mapping out cases and missions and code names, hoping something would help him get his normal life back. That Tron poster's been the subject of enough jokes and commentary (including in this episode, when we learn it was a gift from Chuck's dad) that I should have realized there was more to it than just a silly ad for an '80s movie. So this is Chuck's real mission: Using what he's learning with the Intersect in his brain, he wants to get the Intersect out.

And once it's out, he hopes, he'll be with Sarah. He won't move in with her; he couldn't take spending all day, every day, around a woman he's crazy for but can't touch. But then . . . well, might as well let Chuck's own words speak for themselves:

[Just so you know, I am going to get this thing out of my head one day. I will. And when I do, I'm going to live the life that I want with the girl that I love. Because I'm not going to let this thing rob me of that. I won't.]
