4 hours of great TV Monday night (this and 24) However, 24 takes priority since it's the last one.

I am looking forward to Chuck and Shaw's showdown.

Wow, I didn't know this was a two parter either. I think 24 will get the airtime tonight though. Chuck will probably have to wait until Wed.

This show has kicked more ass in half an hour than Lost did in two and a half last night.

Excellent first episode.

Loved the Casey rocket.

Routh as a villian, better than a good guy.

The second episode has too many commercials, it can't gain any momentum. The stuff is good but no continuity when every five minutes 3 minutes of commercials start.

So they've wrapped everything up and rebooted the show nicely. I'm really looking forward to seeing the next chapter.

So Shaw is still possibly alive and Bakula's dead. Pretty good ending, looking forward to Season 4. I just wonder now what hot Milf-type actress will play Ellie and Chuck's mom.

Wow! For the fact that the first few episodes this season were pretty disjointed, this season (and the extra half) fell into place very nicely.

Spoiler:
This episode worked well on a bunch of levels. I'm even hoping that somehow Stephen isn't dead. (He's been in the game so long, he wore a vest with capsules or something. Did Bakula's TNT series get renewed? Although, I don't see why that would preclude a guest appearance.) Back story on Chuck (and Ellie), Shaw can escape and be brought back in and Jeffster with the JBJ cover of "Young Guns" and now fugitives. Will Alex stay in and become a couple with Morgan? Will Morgan be Casey's SIL? That would be epic!


Can't wait for season 4!

Sure am glad this was renewed. Enjoyed the reboot. I guess that Chuck has to tell Ellie that he still has more to do.

Wonder if Chuck will go rogue like Dad or find someway to work within the CIA.

Definitely a good pair to end the season with, IMO ... the whole "video conference confession" thing was a little hokey, but can be forgiven as at least it wasn't the ending.

Just hope we can get a full season next year to wrap everything up... My guess on Chuck's mom is Linda Carter. I dont know that was the feel I got at the end.

My guess is that it was a no-name actress and they'll cast whoever it is they are really going to use over the summer.

Outstanding episode. Although, contrary to Josh Schwarz's statement that this would not have made a good series finale, I think it would have been a great finale (assuming they cut the last 3 or 4 minutes and filmed a new ending, which would have been easy enough to do). Still, I am very glad it's a moot point.

Since the CIA knows what happened to the BuyMore, why don't they use some sway to get Jeffster off.

Loved the scene where Awesome reveals to Ellie that Chuck has been a spy for years

Casey growling the entire time he was at the table in the diner with the ring agent was great.

Thank God for the Buy More blowing up. I hate the scenes there and I hate Jeffster.
Enjoyed the episode and I too would like a Lynda Carter type for Chuck's Mom.
Other suggestions, Jacklyn Smith or Lindsay Wagner.
