Oh good grief. Most dissatisfying/satisfying series finale ever?

Seriously, living rooms will burn if this show is not renewed.

As one John Casey said, "Chuck me."

That was some excellent television.

OH. My. God.

I have no words. None. I need time to think about this.

This could be the most incredible thing -ever-. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, as I doubt it's going to be utterly controllable.

In spite of the fact that I had a feeling Chuck might end up with some ass-kicking abilities, I thought that was "Yoda at the end of Episode II" awesome. Really, I mean it.

Also, I was basically terrified from the 35 minute mark on, wondering who was going to bite it.

ETA:

Line starts behind me, mustbekarma.

I've always liked Bryce, and I'm sorry that he did not get closure with Chuck.

I can't believe that was one hour. So much happened . . .

Chuck was wearing chucks when he kicked some ass at the end. I don't think I've noticed him wearing them before. It made me happy.

"Guys . . . I know kung fu."

I hope this isn't the end of the series.

I really like the idea of Chuck coming into his own and taking responsibility and agency for himself and what he does. It's a great way to launch into a new season, and there damn well better be a new season!

Chuck me. You rang. Mr. Roboto. This show is fudging awesome. Daddy Bartowski has an Intersect, and Chuck just got freaking upgraded.

I am so in love with this episode. I'm also really tempted to buy a Jeffster T-shirt.

HA! He's NEO now?!

I love that I thought it was over, and it was only 36 minutes in. I really enjoyed that -- Bryce, the weird mysterious new group, the upgraded Intersect, Awesome falling into line as soon as he hears Chuck is behind the postponement, not to mention the intervention of a fireworks-hoisting Jeffster...

I'm curious how the kung fu will fold into everything. Is it just a way to skip over the inevitable "Chuck trains as spy" filler? And does he ONLY have kung-fu abilities, or does he also have other abilities? I would find it hilarious if he STILL has no gun skills, even with the upload.

And lastly, I am very, very sad Bryce is dead.

WHYYYY BRYCE? I may have been the only one, but I loved him. Also, if this isn't renewed, I am going to go all kung-fu on NBC's ass.

That was... awesome!

And the Indian lesbian comment? Hilarious!

Guess Chuck chose the hero/spy path instead of the normal life path.

Holy shit... they better renew this show.

Great ending. I will never be able to listen to Mr. Roboto the same way ever again.

I was getting very nervous they were going to off Casey.

The question is, now that Chuck can defend himself, what will they need Sarah and Casey for? Unless they go the Matrix Revolutions route and have Chuck forgetting unstoppable he was at the end of the first act.

Oh God that was amazing. I've always thought it would be awesome if the Intersect gave Chuck special skills, and then they went and did it!!!!! Thank you so much, Chuck writers!

I was terrified for a moment that they were going to kill Casey, but then I was like, no, Roark had to be the shocking death. And then they killed Bryce, and I almost cried. RIP, Larkin.

Okay I'm actually a little disappointed they felt the need to copy The Matrix. I mean come on. It was also a little cheesy the way he flashed and then just took them out like he had done it a million times before. Even Neo had to spar and practice. Plus he was in the matrix doing all the kung fu - not reality.

Yay Bryce is finally dead!

After the A-game Schwartz, Fedak and company have brought this season... that's for damn sure.

So many "oh, hell YES," moments tonight, but for me, the top spot goes to...

Casey: You rang.

I've always liked Bryce, and I'm sorry that he did not get closure with Chuck.

He did, though. Chuck got the full explanation for why Bryce got him booted out of Stanford, and Bryce got his chance to apologize. All's well. Bryce's storyline had played itself out, so it was time for this to happen.

I am so freaked out, I don't even know where to begin.

"To Be Continued"? Does that mean we get Season 3?

The reception hall being destroyed was hilarious. HILARIOUS! I loved Sarah opening all the presents to find a weapon!

He needs them to help him understand the system and how to truly be a spy. Plus, I can't see him working well with the government on his own.

So, did his dad know he would take the upgrade? I'm thinking yes.

Whoah, so does this mean that the backup feature to the one Chuck comic (super spy kung fu Chuck with married Charah)actually may represent the future and wasn't just a random AU?
