Synopsis for Hour 1:

Spoiler:
After a harrowing mission, Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) returns to Chuck (Zachary Levi) with a huge secret. Meanwhile, Ellie (Sarah Lancaster) and Awesome (Ryan McPartlin) are presented with a new opportunity that could change their lives. Adam Baldwin and Joshua Gomez also star.


Synopsis for Hour 2:

Spoiler:
Chuck (Zachary Levi) enlists his family, friend and some unexpected allies as he races to stop Nicholas Quinn (guest star Angus Macfadyen, "Braveheart") from destroying everything Chuck has built over the past five years. Yvonne Strahovski, Joshua Gomez, Adam Baldwin, Sarah Lancaster, Scott Krinsky, Vik Sahay and Mark Christopher Lawrence also star.




That's it. Tonight is the night.

I just hope they don't drop the ball. I feel this season was a missed opportunity since there was very little build-up to the finale. Still, I'm hoping they pull it off in the end.

Sad that it is ending, but at least it goes out with enough notice to plan a proper conclusion. Really looking forward to watching this. Might actually watch it as it airs for the first time since it was on Mondays.

One thing Chuck always did right was season finales. Several could have been series finales and I would have been left satisfied. I'll miss Chuck

I know how I want it to end:

General Beckman: "Guys....I know Kung Fu"

Sad to see the show end. Really hope they pull out all the stops for the finale! I'd like to see Verbanski and Mama Bartowski back kicking ass alongside them. Also hope Casey puts a few rounds into that asshole Quinn.

Sad to see Chuck go. It has been a mostly fun ride, with a few rough spots sprinkled in, but well worth the 5-season investment.

I'll grab a subway sandwich tonight before watching the finale.

Sadly I have not watched any this season. I just stopped watching sometime last season, but will be back for the final.

I just started on this show a month ago and i watched the whole thing up until present within a week. I am very sad to see this go. Why do the networks have to cancel the good shows yet keep jersey shore on?

Warning for those avoiding spoilers... It seems Yvonne was beginning to spoil the final episode in her little interview at around 1 minute in. Avoid!

Ah, the five year journey comes to an end. I have to say, despite this being by far their weakest season I have to give credit to NBC for keeping this on the air so long and especially for allowing them to create a proper series finale.

I'm hoping that Jeffster takes over the spy business.

I somehow did the same thing. I don't ever remember thinking the show was bad but I was just all of a sudden not watching it any longer. It's happened with quite a few shows lately unfortunately. Sadly I don't know if I'll even tune into the finale.

I look forward to seeing how they wrap it up. However, I do not look forward to no new Chuck on Fridays/Mondays.

Too bad the finale sort of started during last week's episode then.

Bye, Chuck. Fun ride!

I would imagine it would be hard to jump right into the finale without watching anything from this season.

Yes, I think so. You could probably be okay having missed the first part of the season, but the last 2-3 episodes have been a mini arc to setup the finale.

Because you didn't f'ing watch it all until last week!!! It's your fault

This show deserved better but 5 years was a great run for a show that could have been done after 2.

I think that those involved in creating this show did a fantastic job overall for 5 years considering the writers never knew how many episodes per season they were going to be given to work with.

Yeah this season has just been ok ... but I choose to look at the series as a whole and based on that it has been a lot of fun to watch and enjoy.

Sorry to see it go as the cast has great chemistry together. I know Yvonne and Zach will catch on some other show easily and of Adam will have a ton of parts on other shows and they won't be short of work but things won't be the same.

Like the rest of you lets hope they go out on top tonight. I'll be DVRing and watching it tomorrow as usual.

Goodbye Chuck its been a blast!

Seriously, for anyone who quit watching for whatever reason and want to attempt to jump in tonight without having seen the last 11 episodes, your not going to have any clue what's going on.
