Welcome to the week between Christmas and New Years. The only reason I have anything to post about is because NBC is trying to burn off Chuck before the end of January. So let's talk about the last two episodes.
I didn't much care for the Christmas one this year. First of all, I thought Chuck killed Shaw, and I kept waiting for that explanation. Guessed I missed it somehow. And I really don't like the darker episodes, so that bothered me as well.
I much preferred this week's episode. I wonder how this fits into the whole Sara and Bryce part of the early seasons. And Sara wasn't originally going to be Chuck's handler. But those inconsistencies aside, I did like it. Plus it was fun to see Peter Burke from While Collar as a bad guy (the mirror of his character on that show, but like Neal is the mirror of Bryce Larkin). Plus they ended things with a happy note and no cliffhanger leading into the next new episode. That surprised me. And it looks like they've worked through the Alex/Morgan issues, which I knew they would, but I liked how they've handled that aspect of things.
