Chuck and Sarah's relationship

Im actually really tired of Sarah treating Chuck like crap. From the very beginning in season 1, she treated him like an endearing little boy with a crush. Their relationship actually developed and changed in season 2, when they were 'almost' together in Prague and Chuck chose to be a spy over her...feelings like that don't just go away, she must have had some kind of reaction to that, but they didn't really develop that at all. Chuck just moved on to Hannah and Sarah moved on to Shaw. And now that Chuck and Hannah broke up and Sarah and Shaw are still together, she's gone back to treating Chuck like a boy with a crush...leading him on...letting him think that something might happen between them, but pushing him away at the same time. I'm really tired of the whole will they/won't they drama now. It's getting old.


Also, Sarah has a history of falling for the 'real spy' kinda guys - there was Bryce, another guy in season 2 that I don't remember the name of and now Shaw. The reason Chuck want to be a real spy is so that he can compete with all the other guys Sarah has dated. Instead, the more he tries to be like them, the more disappointed she gets in him. It's like no matter what he does he isn't going to be good enough for her. Her character has become monotonous and really annoying to me and the writers definitely need to come up with some more good and original material. Maybe something like a time jump to a year from now after Chuck has gone to Rome and come back a real spy and he sweeps her off her feet like Shaw did and this time she is the one chasing after him instead of the other way around like it's been for the past 3 seasons!!

You make some very good points. However, Sarah does like chuck in fact she loves him, but just doesn't want to admit it because shes not supposed to share her feelings. Then why be with shaw? he is basically a rebound and this way she can't get hurt by chuck again. She doesn't really like shaw that much if you saw the last episode then you can see she still has feelings for chuck. I won't spoil anything for people who haven't seen it yet, but it's pretty obvious what her feelings are. Also the whole part where she likes "real spies" thats not entirely true. Yes she did fall for some spies but when she met chuck she fell in love with the fact that he was so innocent. She doesn't want him to change into a spy because his whole personality will change, and if you saw last episodes she explains what happened to her when she became a spy and completed her spy test. I can see how this is back and forth a bit but i can also see how the directors want to milk this relationship as much as possible. Looking forward to the next episode im actually really excited to see them develop even more. Only thing i would ask for them to put in is a scene where there in a close life to death situation, kind of like the bomb scene in season 1. That way we can finally find the truth and then they can both mack it up. :D

Btw is it just me or does Shaw need to die already? idk i find him really annoying.

bler2009, I totally agree with you that Sarah does love Chuck. But that doesn't mean that she doesn't treat him like crap. She leads him on because she loves him and then suddenly she starts pulling away. Last night's episode is the perfect example of that. The whole 'lasy spy dinner' thing that Chuck set up, she was all about giving him mixed signals then..and also when he came back to the yogurt shop thinking his mission was finished, and he said all those times that we can finally really be together when I become a real spy...it tell you exactly how Chuck feels - like he needs to be a real spy in order to be with Sarah. And instead of telling Chuck anything, she just lets him go on believing that when she invited him to dinner it was because she wanted them to be together. I'm just saying that she's pretty good at leading him on all the time and its starting to get old.The worst part of it is that she tells Shaw all her real feelings. She told him her real name, last night she told him about the time when she first became a spy, and she also told him how she felt about Chuck, instead of telling Chuck himself and helping him understand where she is coming from.I love Chuck and Sarah together - but thats what they need to be..together..not this whole on again off again thing, coz that is beginning to lose my interest. It's like the writers don't know what to write if Sarah and Chuck get together so they just continue to keep them apart.

i only have a small point. i agree with most of what you've both said. as a tv show writer they can never be together... if there is no drama in the relationship, no conflict... then it isnt interesting. they can be together for a little while. but then they can't again for some reason. they have to keep people going... will they or wont they.
granted 3 seasons of that is getting boring for me also, thats why they brought in Kristen Kruek's character. it was good she was hot, they had a thing. got our minds off chuck and sarah... they really should have let that play out longer than it did. because there was still the relationships, they were happy... or were they... chuck still had feelings for sarah, she had feelings for him but they were with different people....
it was interesting and different.... they could have used them cheating on their respective partner with each other, and keeping it a secret ..... ya know?
but with chuck and sarah being together? it can, and never will, actually happen for real
unless they "fairytale ending" the show. i dont think i want them to drag it out into another 3 seasons... maybe one more of them downing the ring once and for all... less cheese and more rawness... kill a main character off somewere near the end. like morgan, or casey... then end it with chuck and sarah deciding to be together or something.
i actually thought it was a GREAT twist when they killed that geek ass man. and thought it was a good idea they killed awesome... i didnt like that he wasn't actually dead... it was real, it had emotion... chuck's job got him involved, then killed. gah, now im just ranting.. i hate it when i start typing.
thats it for me.

Man, I hate Shaw.
I watched season 1 the other day and everyone was so much more likeable - it was amazing!
I want those characters back, I want Chuck to be all lovely again and for Sarah to actually have feelings...
And I think this should be the final season, even though this is my absolute favourite show, I think if they don't end it soon it'll just be dulled even more from its original brilliance

Look I love chuck, but it is kind of getting boring for me. Every season just seems to go the same way doesn't it. Chuck likes Sarah and Sarah likes chuck. Then she decides they can't be together. Then the show decides to throw in beautiful awesome woman like Lou from season 1, Jill from season 2, and Hannah from this current season. And in each of his relationships his spy life interferes in some way. Then Sarah falls for a spy season 1 and parts of 2 there was Bryce, from parts of 2 there was Cole Barker, and now there is Shaw from the current season. To me, and maybe this just is to me, they need to try something different because frankly it is getting old. I love the show, but I just want to get out of the cycle!

I agree that the relationship between the two have been on and off. However if you saw tonights episode it looks like things finally are calm. Also not to ruin alot of things for people, but with a certain deaths and a new spy. I think that is exactly what the show needed to be rejuvenated. Im looking forward to how things develop from this point forward, and if i had to take a guess i would say that the whole on and off thing with chuck and sarah(Sam) is finally over.
