Will Tonight Be the Best Episode of Chuck Ever?!?

If you read my recap of last week's episode of Chuck (you did read my recap, right?), you saw me mention that Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak told Alan Sepinwall and Dan Fienberg of HitFix.com that tonight's episode, "Chuck vs. the Push Mix," is maybe the best episode of the series' history.  Further, the last ten minutes of the episode are, according to Schwartz, the best ten minutes they have ever shot.  In the words of a great (wo)man named Frank, I shiver with antici........................................................................

I mean, these are big words coming from Chuck's showrunners.  It's not often that creators will raise expectations so high for one particular episode, or one ten minute period for that matter, lest those expectations not be met and the audience be majorly disappointed.  Network promotion flacks do this all the time, and certainly, reality shows do it every week ("the most dramatic Rose Ceremony EVER!!"), but it is rather uncommon for showrunners and producers to make such bold proclamations.

What do you make of this?  Personally, it has just made me all the more psyched for tonight's episode.  Remember, NBC's original order for this season was thirteen, and tonight's episode is the thirteenth, meaning in the originally planned arc for this season, this episode was to be the season, if not series, finale.  As such, I expect to see the conclusion of a number of stories that have palyed out so far this season.  (What comes next is purely my speculation.  I haven't seen tonight's episode, nor have any spoilers.  Just in case you were worried.)
