Can I Have Back Those Last Two Hours of my Life Chuck? A Review of the Chuck Season End
Non cosmetic Musings ahead….!
I’ll start off this post by saying the season finale of Chuck sucked. Spoilers ahead
Yes, I said it.
I can’t believe I lost two hours of my life basically bringing me back to season one. You can say that this leaves things open for a movie or a special you can say it leaves things wide open for the fan base to write up a ton of fan fiction but I say it sucked.
I wanted the house, the picket fence, little Lester and Jeffs running around the front yard. I want happily ever after for Chuck and Sarah.
I did not want…
Ellie packing up her bags and leaving after her brother faced such a blow to his heart. “Oh hai you lost your wife but I’m leaving now! k, take care, smell ya laterz”
What the hell? Ellie spent five seasons babying Chuck, nurturing him, essentially being his mother and now she just ups and leaves? How freaking out of character is that?
So I guess Casey hasn’t grown at all. Five seasons and I’m waiting for him to evolve slightly and obviously the fact he can easily ignore calls from his daughter and pick up and leave so easily proves that his character is just as much of an a-hole as the day we first met him. I didn’t expect him to become a mush or Super Dad but I didn’t expect him to so stiffly and coldly up and leave like that.
Chuck and Sarah…
What’s to say? Did they really end this season on notes like her turning around and telling him she knows they are married, know they love each other, but she just “isn’t feeling it?” Seriously? Honestly? They didn’t even allow her to try. I was actually hoping they’d send off with them kissing on the beach and her having an Intersect-like flash and remembering everything they had together but nope…nada….maybe they will start their relationship over, maybe they won’t, maybe Sarah needs more time to “find herself”…who knows? They decided to NOT tell us.
Couldn’t we have more time saying good bye to Big Mike? Morgan? The moments were so brief and fleeting with both characters. If you blinked you would have missed their exits.
The only thing I take comfort in is the fact that Jeffster had one last hooray and for this I’ll be eternally grateful and try really hard to forgive the fracked up ending. At least when people ask me about Chuck I can say “We’ll always have Jeffster…!”
Would love to hear!
