Wise words, Bruno Mars. And exactly what Chuck needed to hear from Sarah.
The Show Me State
The Belgian still has Chuck somewhere in Thailand, and he's trying his darnedest to get the Intersect to work. He employs people in Chuck's subconscious to motivate him to flash, but to no avail. (Yes, Lester was a poor choice.)
Sarah, meanwhile, has been searching high and low for her missing beau. She's on the verge of letting her emotions overwhelm her spy sensibilities -- including questioning the Thai ambassador (who handles the Belgian's dirty work) by whatever means necessary. We're talking Kill Bill
Plans and Things
Back at home, Sarah accidentally sees a folded piece of paper in Chuck's Nerd Herd shirt pocket, and Morgan, of course, spills the beans. ("I hate myself," Morgan says.) But huzzah, it's Chuck's proposal plan!
Unfortunately, the plan was put on hold when Chuck lost the Intersect. Morgan tells Sarah that she's a big fish, and without the supercomputer in his brain, Chuck feels like he's just a regular guy. She exclaims that she loves him with or without the Intersect, but herein lies the problem. She's never told him that.
The Giant Blonde She-Male
Eventually, Sarah elicits information from the ambassador which leads her to the jungles of Thailand. She beats down a guy with a scar running down his face ("Anyone else want to be my boyfriend?") and then meets a man who promises to tell her what he knows about the Belgian if she can beat his best fighter.
The fight ensues, and although the guy cheats by throwing sand in her eyes, Morgan and Casey arrive before anything bad can happen. But Sarah being Sarah, she's still up for the challenge and finishes the fight with a victory. Woman on a mission, here!
Flash, Flash, Baby
Chuck still can't access the Intersect. Understandably, the Belgian gets frustrated so he suggests phase three: a lobotomy to wipe Chuck's mind clean.
In his dream state, Chuck sees various friends and family members on television screens in the Buy More ordering him to flash. Meanwhile, in reality, the team comes into the lab and apprehends the Belgian and Dr. Mueller.
Sarah parks herself next to Chuck and tearfully tells him that she doesn't care whether he has the Intersect or not. She's nothing but a spy without him. And most importantly, she wants to marry him! Like Sleeping Beauty, she gives him a kiss and he wakes up from his reverie.
The General commends their actions, and Chuck's happy to find that the government still wants him even without the Intersect.
Get a Vroom
In this week's B-plot, Ellie finds a laptop in her dad's car. Since she's off to work, Devon attempts to figure out how the thing works. He calls in reinforcements (aka Jeff and Lester), but they want something in return. "Four words: my abscess, Lester's gout." Disgusting.
But Devon's a pro, and he agrees to exchange medical consults for technical expertise. Eventually, most of the Buy More ends up in the Woodcomb household for various reasons -- and their apartment turns into a mini-clinic.
Although Devon will explore the "darker corners of the human body" for Ellie's sake, he draws the line at colonoscopies. Thankfully, they get the computer to work. All it needs is a password. (Jeff: "Knock, knock. It's an impenetrable riddle.")
Later, Ellie comes home and she knows exactly what the password is: "I'm here." She types it in and ...
We won't know until next week what she saw, but what do you think it is? Spill in the comments below.
