Morgan may have lost his frosted tips (thank god), but during his rough patch with the Intersect he also lost the girl. So now, continuing through the terrific Christmas episode (airing Dec. 23), the rookie spy will... CLICK TO READ THE REST!

CHUCK Versus the Hack Off - 5.05 Discussion


EDIT: LINK TO MY HACK-OFF RECAP! CLICK! CLICK! OH MY GAWD, CLICK!


And so it begins... the final nine episodes of CHUCK. No break in between. Just a mad rush to the end.

What is WB saying about this episode? Nothing. Apparently they were too drunk to post anything on their media site. Sure, I could go with NBC's stuff but I'm not in the mood.

So, what are your expectations? What did you think of the episode? If you had to rate it, from 0 to 100, what rating would you give it? GO!

And for the idiots who can't stop talking about 2 seconds of a promo... after an awesome episode...

Finally recorded a podcast where I talked about CHUCK 5.04 and other stuff about the show.  But we talked about much more than that, so it isn't a CYP.  If you want to put in a marathon worth of listening, check it out.  WARNING, lots of filthy, dirty, nasty words.

Dear DR: Goodbye, Dear Departed Friend

Fans asked questions and I have submitted them to my ninja deep inside the inner regions of the CHUCK universe.  He has responded and I have modified his response to fit this feature.  And away we go!

Q: DR, you are so awesome you should be running a major TV network or something. You watch nothing but the best shows on television. Is there something coming up with Chuck and Sarah that crazy shippers can freak out about? Or that you can word in a way that will freak them out even though it is innocuous? -- MediaSavant

A: Thank you for recognizing my genius and I should be running a TV network... or something. As for your question, the answer is....... YES! In fact, it is so big it will blow their freakin' minds. People will burn down their living rooms and throw their Subway sammiches in the garbage while pissing all over their cheese balls. It is going to be awesome! Honestly, I am shocked they are even doing it this late in the game. But as a great man once said, whenever a show runner tells you this season is for the fans, what it really means is "We are going to mess with you so bad that you will be super angry, but please stick with us because, in the end, we will turn it all around... we hope."

Q: Oh humble great and wonderful DR, please tell me a secret. Will the finale live up to our expectations? Last year you warned us of the awful cliffhanger (Morgan getting the Intersect) and you were 100% right. So what say you about this upcoming finale? Thank you for answering my question and for keeping up with the best, funniest, and most rebellious fan site in the history of mankind. I love you madly. -- Miss NBC Universe

A: Hi, Miss Universe. Thank you for acknowledging my humbleness and my greatness. All very true. Now, will the finale live up to expectations? I have no idea what "we" expect. I think fans WANT it to be great, emotional, heart warming, dramatic, funny, exciting, and pay off every single thing they ever wanted to see. If that is the case, then no. It can't possibly meet or exceed those expectations. But then what series finale can? People put too much pressure on final episodes. I am of the Ronald D. Moore mindset when it comes to series finale episodes: it's the characters, stupid. And if you go into the finale with that mindset, then it will probably pay off. If you go in thinking "They better answer everything, and what was the light at the bottom of the cave, and where did Starbuck go, and did Sam Beckett ever get home or did he continue to leap for eternity?!" then you are going to be disappointed. Temper your expectations and you will likely cry yourself to sleep that night, emotionally exhausted from not just the ending but the journey.

Q: Dear DR, your handsomeness knows no bounds and your eyes sparkle in the night like a shooting star piercing through an angel's wings. My question is will Morgan and Alex get back together or was their breakup a way to save money by letting go an actress? I hope not since I think Mekenna is awesome and beautiful! Thanks buddy! -- Not Mekenna's publicist I swear

A: Dear Mekenna's publicist, you say such sweet things, but you already know the answer to that question. That story isn't over.

Q: Dear DR you lite up my life and your podcast is the reason I wear adult diapers. Whats the baby in Chuck versus the baby? Speculation is that its Sarahs child from before she joined the CIA. I know it sounds rediculous but some believe it. Can you confirm or denie? -- Anonymous #1, if that even is their name

A: I appreciate your kind words but that spelling and punctuation is atrocious! But you were complimentary so I will answer your question. Yes, I can confirm or deny that ridiculous rumor.

Q: Once more unto the breach, dear DR all wise and powerful wizard of all things Chuck, and Yvonne's favorite fan. Will Papa B return? I'm almost afraid he will and that it will make no sense. I realize you have a no major spoilers rule but just hint or wink or nudge me or something. Appreciated. Love you. -- Shakes a Spear

A: To answer that would be a major spoiler. Take from that whatever you like.

Q: There will be a hospital scene like in season 4 finale??? -- esozcanesk

A: I would love to answer this question but... no compliment? Nothing about how wonderful I am? Pffft. Next! Which is too bad since the answer is a juicy one. Live and learn.

Q: DR, Can you give us a hint as to what will be going on with Sarah later in the season? You seemed to suggest - in the 5.4 episode discussion - that Sarah's ability to pass the lie detector test was connected to some kind of issue that will spring up between her and Chuck. I normally don't care all that much about relationship drama, but I'm curious as to what this big revelation will be concerning Mrs. Bartowski. -- X

A: Another great question with no love attached to it. No one pays me to do this... well, Daniel does. Oh, Daniel... how I love you. I really do. One of maybe a handful of people who ever donates to this site. But most people don't do it EVERY MONTH! I love you, Daniel. With all my heart. Anyway, so what is my reason for answering if you are not even going to tell me how beautiful I am? WHAT IS MY REASON? HUH?! And this, yet again, would result in a great answer and tie into another question but alas, no. I am so very disappointed in you, X. If that even is your name! Especially the part where you refer to her as "Mrs. Bartowski."

Q: Glory be praised to the lord of the Chuck fandom, dear DR can you tell us if anyone will die? There have been conflicting statements from Fedak about no one is safe but he doesn't want to kill off anyone. Your poll suggest someone will. I thought it would be General Beckman but she is not an option. Is that a sneaky hint? I could see you doing something like that. -- Matt

A: Your compliment is excellent but your question relates to a major spoiler and also discounts the possibility of two people dying. But since I can't answer such things, I will just thank you for your worship.

Q: Dr Razorback of the mighty Chuck universe please guide me in answering my question for I am eternity grateful. Will Chuck and Sarah ever have an episode in which they are romancing it up for a long period of time or that they have a bunch of sweet moments? Any hint on what those moments can be? I am eternity grateful for this last Dear Dr, I will forever remember you Dr Razorback and all of your amazing works -- Sandy Chax

A: I have no idea what will make the edit but... yes. There is a whole heap of sweetness. But if you want hot sex, then there is nothing (the ninja) can think of off-hand.

Q: DR, you are my god. Period. Will Sarah's true love Shaw return to take her away from that wimpy kisser Chuck? He was dreamy. But, not as dreamy as you. -- Tru Shipper

A: I am dreamy, aren't I? Always thought I was. Thanks for confirming it. Anyway, Shaw does return and will kiss Sarah in a way Chuck never has, will, or could. Though, nothing will ever be hotter than the way Cole kissed her. Poor girl, ruined for all time by a super spy from the UK. Is that what you wanted to hear? Otherwise, nice trolling.

Q: Dearest sweet DR, please tell me if we find out anything wild about Sarah's past like she was married before or pregnant. -- Anonymous #2, if that even is their name

A: We do find out a ton about her but married or preggers? Come on. At best we find out she had sex with men before Chuck. Ruhroh, what did I do?!

Q: All hail the mighty DR, whose wit and wisdom doth put all crazy shippers to shame. (Or it would if they had the brains to realize how stupid you make them look.) In the interest of not asking megaspoilers, I'll leave it general. Can I get a Casey-oriented spoiler of your choice? I've been (mostly) good this year. -- Cor

A: The clock is ticking on Casey's future. Twitch but a little and he could bring about the ruin of them all! (Someone is going to complain this isn't a spoiler, but in time, you will understand that...)

Q: Dear DR Thank you for these awesome 3 years wich I've known you!! You'll always have a special place in my heart! With your podcast every week made me laugh and watch chuck in a different special way... I already miss you... so my question is will chuck get the Intersect back? I love him intersectless btw -- Nena a fan from Greece

A: Awwww, so sweet. We should snuggle. Anyway, Chuck doesn't need to get the Intersect back. However, will the Intersect be back into play this season? You bet. But your question should have been, w...............

Q: I'm making a toast to you royalness with a glass of champagne also because it my birthday DR you've brightened my week for so long now and may I say a huge thank you and now I have my final question to you are the number votes for who will die in the finale going in the right direction?? And you know just give a wink or a nudge you know pleassee PS it would be an awesome 18th birthday present if you would answer. Much appreciated your greatness -- Much love from London :)

A: Happy Birthday! And you know I can't say anything about that. ;)

Q: I have this theory that DR is the most amazing, smart and artistic person out there... O WAIT he already is. Darth Razorback in your wisdom can you bestow upon me WHY CHUCK AND SARAH SEEM SO DISTANT? Are they ever going to have one of those amazing scene like at the end of 4.02 "Chuck versus the Suitcase" IF SO PLEASE SHARE YOU WISDOM -- Nerd OUT

A: Your theory is a fact! As for a moment like the end of Suitcase... if you mean a horrified Sarah, then I am not sure. But if you mean a nice in-bed moment like that, then yes.... provided they don't cut it.

Q: Beautiful DR, what do your ninjas on the inside say about the set this season? Are people sad or enjoying the final episodes? Is it upbeat? How about this last week? Thanks! -- Anonymous #3, if that even is their name

A: The set is like the end of senior year in high school. Everyone's happy, sad, looking forward and holding onto the final days as if something great is coming to an end. Final week is really emotional as people shoot their last scenes either together or at all. Kleenex required if you plan on being on set December 7th. I will miss this crew. They're like my family. I will miss Zach and all the things that make him who he is. It was an honor. -- Ninja #1

Q: Dear DR just wondering if morgan is going to have anymore effects from the intersect. I know they have shown him not remembering things like star wars and indiana jones movies and casey have fun with him but will he have like an effect like every once in a while Morgan has little darkside from when he had the intersect? Which I think could help with the fans you don't like how they just finished it up in the last episode. PS love your podcast I hope you do more when you have the time because they were and are great to listen. Thanks for all your hard work and comedy. -- Canadian Greg

A: Morgan has been de-Intersected so... his dark side powers are gone as is the effect on his mind. The ninja has nothing to add to that. However.........

Q: Have you heard anything that sounds like it can become a "fan favorite"? -- MediaSavant

A: The ninja says these are episodes that could be "fan favorites." 5.05 and 5.07. But since he didn't think much of 5.04, and some silly peeps did, take that for what it is worth. 5.03 is one of his favorites. He can't tell you whether 5.09 to 5.13 are good until he sees them edited but he thinks there could be three winners in that bunch.

Q: Does Sarah have a sister? (flashback to season 1 chuck vs the wookie, the barowski family, morgan, amd sarah are playin a game, sarah gets the ? Most dangerous situation ever..she says when her and her SISTER put baby oil instead of sunscreen and got burnt like a lobster)...so...does she really have a sister?? -- Anonymous #4, blahblahblah

A: No love, no answer. Next time, send cash. Actually, do I really need to answer this anyway?

Q: I fear that "DR" is an inappropriate term for you seeing as you, Sir, are a god among men and, thus, your knowledge is highly valued and sought after. You put Jedi to shame. You put, I dare say, Chuck Norris to shame.

Alas, I implore you to pray tell: Chuck and Sarah. Baby by the end? Sarah's face when Devon was instructing baby Pilates could either be an accidental thing by Yvonne's... Amazement, for lack of a better term, or epic foreshadowing. My feeble, human mind cannot take the suspense of not knowing the answer.


A: If ****** and I have any say in it, if there is a baby (or babies), the first born will be named Magnus (way inside joke only six people will ever get). But you will just have to watch... I doubt you will be disappointed by the ending.

Q: Just wanted to say thanks for all you've done! You and your site have been the best part of my Chuck experience, especially the podcasts! Always appreciate hearing your opinions on episodes, storylines or whatever, and all the info you've given to fans. Any good hints/tidbits about the Christmas episode? -- OldPandaDayz

A: Thank you! This one is going to be a classic CHUCK episode where the Buy More, spy team, and family issues are all under siege around the holiday. The ninja really likes it. He did send me a spoiler but it may be too big. It involves someone ****************. Oh yeah, some of those stars are spaces. ;)

Q: Dear DR - Magnus - One thing I am least looking forward to as the series ends is the anticipation of reading your insights, comments and other wordly snark! You have set the standard for fan site interaction - and the bar is very high! With that said, I have but one question - Fedak likes every ending to be a beginning - a prologue to what is to come. Will the finales (5.13) be a real finale, with maybe an epilogue, or will it again tease us a bit with what could be or have been? I look forward to keeping up with you on GeekFurious - but you'll always be DR to me! -- PeterOinNJ

A: Well, thank you, PeterO. I appreciate that. I can tell you that the ending was open ended when they were hammering out the season because, despite what you have heard from "official" sources, there wasn't a defined 13 and out before the episodes aired. However, and perhaps thanks to the crappy ratings, now it is less open ended. Granted, who knows what they will do in the final edit, but it looks, right now, like there will be real closure to the character arcs.

Q: In the end, will the show lean more towards "free will" or "determinism"? The whole hint of a conspiracy in which Chuck has been a pawn would seem to go towards the latter. -- MediaSavant

A: That is the best question so far. The easiest answer is: determinism with free will. Though, I can't qualify that because I would have to know more about what the ninja means and I don't want to know any more than I already do. I know it makes for sucky answers but... it is what it is. ;)

These are essentially all the questions asked. Either people don't want to ask more questions or they just don't want to know, or they really don't like me! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

If you don't like the answers I gave, too bad. Only Daniel gets to complain. :o)

The Final Dear DR EVER! Ask your questions.


UPDATE: QUESTIONS ANSWERED HERE (hint, CLICK).

So, even though I have sworn off doing spoiler blogs ever again, one of my ninjas deep inside the sewers of the brothers Warner, has hounded me for several days about doing one last Dear DR. And so I have finally given in, especially since there is so little going on.

So, ask your questions below and be sure to phrase them in the form of a glowing lovefest for me. The ones that get answered are the ones that are the most loving, worshiping, and all around gushing of me and my sites. If you ask a genius question but don't tell me how awesome I am, it is likely that you will have to find Ausiello's address and ask him.

P.S.

DR does NOT stand for DOCTOR. It stands for Darth Razorback... which is the name I sometimes use on the Internet thingy.

Oh and if you don't know what Dear DR is all about, tough. You miss out! Alrighty, so it is essentially a Q&A between you and me. You ask me anything and I answer it. Usually it is CHUCK related, though. Since my ninjas all work on CHUCK!

A few of articles you will want to check out from the site.

First is my review of CHUCK Vs. the Zoom. Full of adult language so the kids should definitely NOT read it (which means they will if you don't supervise their computer time).

Next is a breakdown of ratings for CHUCK from last season's finale and this season's premiere, plus a comparison between CHUCK and GRIMM, rating wise.

That second one is very safe for your little ones. Only I have a potty mouth.

Finally, if you haven't checked it out yet, there is the CHUCK 5.01 podcast with Wendy and myself that we did immediately following the episode on Friday. Yeah, that's not over at GF but I thought to drop it in here anyway. :)

CHUCK Season 4 on the DVD Sales Chart

I wasn't shocked by the sales numbers for season 4, based on the amount of people who ordered through my site, which was tiny compared to last year.

CHUCK was 13th on the weekly list with 45,257 units sold generating $1,538,285 in revenue for WB. To put that into perspective, it probably wouldn't pay for the cost of a single episode and is about how much NBC collects in ad revenue for a single episode.

Where is the fandom? Where is this strong fan base? To put it into yet another perspective, these DVD numbers are LESS THAN HALF a 41% drop when compared to season 3 week-1 sales. Seasons 2 and 3 weren't as far apart in week-1 sale (23%), but season 4 sales are a departure from even the ratings trend between seasons. So what gives? Why didn't you order? And more importantly, why didn't you order through my site?!

UPDATE: Week 2 Sales - 15,423

The Complicated Math of Scheduling CHUCK


With the recent announcement by NBC that the season premiere of CHUCK season 5 has been moved back to October 28th, some fans are upset and don't understand why NBC would do such a thing.  So I decided to call on my friends at NBC to explain themselves.

First of all, NBC takes into account the direct value of a second of ad space time as it is related to the number of viewers watching.  Then, they extrapolate from that the date, time, and air temperature, as well as the position of the sun with relation to Venus and Alpha Centauri.

Next, the schedulers project for the weight of a McDonalds chocolate chip cookie and the difference between it and the weight of a Burger King apple pie, and multiply that by 7, then subtract 4 and add 23.  This gives you a totally random number.

NOW, this is when things get a bit complicated but I will make it as easy as possible.

NBC uses a fancy schmancy formula based on astrophysical equations that relate the speed of light and the distance between two random points on the galactic map in the emergency kit given to every NBC employee (since Comcast took over), and divide that by the random number generated in the previous step.  Then, they subtract, divide, and turn upside down the number 42, then juggle it around in a bottle of tequila before pouring it out into 12 shot glasses that are then given to 11 scheduling employees who each do one shot.  The remaining shot is then given to an Elvis impersonator who splashes the drink in his face.

At this point a newborn kitten is brought in to act super cute and to meow incessantly. The Elvis impersonator then sings a Cold Play song and does a strange NFL endzone victory dance he calls the Elvis Pelvis Shuffle. The staff claps, spins in circles with their eyes closed, and then walk toward a calendar with their index fingers extended. Once each member of the staff lands on a date, the office manager writes down all the dates, adds them up, and divides for the average, then adds 12 for no reason whatsoever.

And that, CHUCK fans, is how NBC decides where your show will end up on the schedule!

Chuckfest3 Raffle!


Though CHUCKFEST3 tickets sold out in less than an hour (sorry if you missed it), we held onto a few tickets for a raffle. We then contacted a fan site we trust, one that has done a lot of charity work and helped raise funds for Operation Smile before, and asked them to run it.

So, run over there now and donate! The minimum donation is $20 to enter, and you can enter as many times as you like (you can donate $200 once and get counted for 10 entries if you like). Read the rest of the info at ZacharyLeviFan.com!

Good luck! Oh, and all the donations will be added to the Chuckfest3 total that will go to Operation Smile.

Chuckfest3: Ordering Info and More


There have been a lot of questions about Chuckfest3 since we announced it last week. So here are the details you will need regarding donation per ticket, number of tickets you can order and so on.

1. Chuckfest3 will be at a location in the Los Angeles, California area on the weekend of November 4-6, 2011 (we are pretty sure it is the 5th but clear up the days just in case). We will provide all those attending with the exact location before the date of the event. EDIT: We just confirmed the 5th of November.

2. The donation per ticket is $300. This covers some expenses the organizers incur for the event while also providing a sufficient amount to go to our charity of choice, Operation Smile. Last time we were able to raise over $17,000 AFTER expenses.

3. There will only be SIXTY (60) tickets available for sale to the public. Last time we sold those tickets in about a day. There were many people upset that they missed out on them. This time, we are giving everyone three-day notice before going live.


Tickets will go on sale at 12pm EST on Thursday the 22nd of September.

We will provide a link to the ticket ordering page at that time. Look to this site for that at exactly 12pm on Thursday. There will be a limit of FOUR (4) tickets per order.

4. FOUR (4) tickets will be raffled off by a trusted fan site, to those who donate $20 or more. We will have more details about that soon. However, the only way to guarantee attendance is to order tickets on Thursday. We expect many entrees into the raffle. Chuckfest3 will be the final event of this type.

5. The tickets purchased and/or won in the raffle DO NOT include travel expenses. If you buy a ticket or win the raffle, you will need to find your way to Los Angeles, California in the great republic of the United States of America!

6. I almost forgot... attending will be anyone and everyone from the cast, writing team etc that we can get. Currently confirmed are, ***, ****, ****, *****, ***, and more. :)

Now let's revisit what the first event we ever did was like. We expect this next one will be better.

CHUCK Season 5: You Write It, I Make it Happen!


With my many, many, super secret ninja sources within WB and NBC, I have the power to influence the writing of the season in ways the show runners can't even begin to imagine.

I am that good.

Don't believe me? Sucks to be your cynicism.

Now, for those who are believers, who have faith in the all mighty Me, I am taking requests now for what you want to happen in season 5. I will then take the best ideas and have one of my smoke-bomb-throwing ninjas sneak into the writers room late at night and drop the idea(s) on their white board.

Those guys and gals are often so full from stuffing their faces with the awesome catering they get, and "happy" from whatever else that goes on when the doors are closed, that they won't notice that they didn't put the idea(s) on the board.

Hurry, though, there isn't much time before they start to break the second half of the season! Once that happens, my ninjas can only change so much. So, put your ideas in the comment section (anonymous posting, as always, is available), and I will make it happen!

Don't delay, dammit!

EXCLUSIVE: NBC to Order More CHUCK for Season 5?

I begrudgingly post this for the sake of accuracy and because someone I respect felt I should:

Following my posting of an article linking to Sepinwall's interview with the head of NBC, several reliable individuals contacted me about talks between NBC and WB for more episodes in season 5.

I had heard about this around SDCC (Michael Ausiello hinted at it in a cast interview) and checked with my source at NBC and was told not to take it seriously (since Ausiello seemed to be hinting at a sixth season). However, the response yesterday from others in-the-know made me press the NBC source for more information.

I was told today that while NBC hasn't 100% ruled out anything, that the likelihood of a back order, at least right now, is less than 10%. For NBC to order more episodes, the source said, WB would have to keep the licensing fee at the 13 episode order level. WB may be unwilling to do that since they don't need more than 88 episodes to sell the show into syndication.

WB COULD possibly lower the licensing fee again, perhaps if CHUCK Season 4 DVD/BD sales are very good. So, start ordering, people!

Order: CHUCK SEASON 4 DVD
Order: CHUCK SEASON 4 Blu-Ray

(Disclosure: I make like $1.something per your order if you clicky that link)

This individual went onto say that the CHUCK writers are writing the next 13 as the series finale but... and here is the kicker, since NBC hasn't fully committed to ending it at 13, the series finale will end up being open ended, instead of having full closure like many expect.

If NBC decides to pick the show up for more, they would have to do it before November, when production ends.  The problem there is that CHUCK doesn't return until 21 October. That doesn't give NBC much time to judge its need for more episodes.  The most likely scenario would have any back order occur BEFORE the show returns, or at the latest, within the first week or two of its return. 

Do you want the 13 episodes written as a series finale and then have 9 episodes tacked on after they have shot 11 of them? How do you feel about an open ended series finale? Comment below.

Head of NBC: CHUCK Is Definitely Over

Head of NBC Entertainment, Robert Greenblatt states definitively that it is 13 episodes and done.

Update: I have been contacted by a couple of people who want me to correct my projection. The head of NBC did not, in that interview, specify 13 episodes. He specified the season was its last.

My source at NBC still says it ends at 13, though.

CHUCK casting news... spoiler

From TV Line's Michael Ausiello, Casey's ultimate foe is...

Will Chuck and Sarah Split in Season 5?

Since I am no longer doing spoiler blog postings, I am now going to just do these kinds of postings where you get to read between the lines.

So, what do you think? If they do split up, how would it make sense? Would you be furious? Would you freak out? Would you burn down your living-room? What if it happens due to amnesia? Would that be totally stupid and should be erased right now as the writers are putting it on the whiteboard as we speak?

Comment in the thingy below.

CHUCK premiere gets "super actor" Craig Kilborn

Glad to see CHUCK getting non-actors for season 5... will make for weak performances and undercut the writing.

Chuck Season 5 - Geek Pr0n!

Since this site has always maintained a mostly PG status, I decided to toss this article over to the Geek Furious site instead. It isn't too naughty or any such things (I don't think I use any expletives in the article), but it is definitely too graphic and sexual in description for this site (otherwise I would have posted it here).

So, enjoy the article... IF YOU DARE CLICK TO READ IT!

Alrighty, SDCC 2011 is upon us and there will likely be tons of info rolling in over the weekend so I will be posting it here.  I will most likely just update CHUCK stuff with links to whatever is going on for those who don't want to hunt it down.

If you have something I haven't posted, just post the link in the comments section and I will link it here.

CHUCK Season 5 Cost Cutting Ideas (potential spoilers)

My ninjas have come through again, this time invading the writers room to take a picture of one of the white boards.  I warn you all that this could reveal major plot lines for season 5.  So, read carefully.

The following is ways that the CHUCK producers have figured out to make the show for less, or to somehow pay for the episodes after WB cut the budget yet again.


What do you think of this photo? Will season 5 be awesome?

Rejected CHUCK Season 4 Cliffhangers

Original by Rob Cabrera (shark stuff added by me)
With only a few months until the final season of CHUCK, my ninja insider sources have uncovered a list of cliffhanger ideas* that the writers submitted to show runner Chris Fedak, ones he eventually rejected.

Understand that many ideas that are discarded in one season could end up in another, so read these at your own risk as they could spoil you down the line.  I recommend you do not read this if you are sensitive to potential spoilers or are just a massive baby.

This means you, [fill in blank here].
