Dear DR: THE FINAL FIVE!

This should be the last Dear DR of season 4 unless something nutty happens.  Fans asked questions and I answer them.  If you don't like the questions, blame yourself for not asking them.  I have over 20 questions and some big spoilers.  I will start off with these and update this posting daily, sometimes more than once per day.  Return often.

Dear DR, will we see Mama B again? If so, in how many episodes? -- Mamemimomu

She returns in 4.20 and will be around for three of the final five (until I hear differently). -- DR

What are the odds of CHUCK getting another season? -- Shervaan

A source puts the odds at 50/50.  That is up from 30/70 a few weeks ago. Take that for what it is worth. -- DR

I 'm just wondering, will Chuck's life be in danger (being shot etc)? -- esozcanesk

Members of Team B will find themselves in life or death situations, some more than others. -- DR

I know that Sarah's dad is coming back, but other than that will Sarah have some interesting stories in upcoming episodes? -- Harku the Creeper

She gets an awesome NEW CAR!  Is that an interesting story? -- DR

Are they ever going to reveal Sarah's real name? -- nena

Her real name is Sam Lisa [something].  You should know that. -- DR

Oh Mighty DR, in 4.22, is Agent X someone close to Chuck (like Ellie or Devon)? Also, in which episode does Sarah have her bachelorette party? And does Chuck have a bachelor party too? -- TS

Answering your first question would likely reveal too much but your second is easy.  4.22 is the bachelor and bachelorette parties for Chuck and Sarah, respectively. -- DR

Dear DR:
1. The decline of CHUCK's viewers in the Male 18-34 group has been discussed in the ratings podcast. Is there anything ahead that may interest that group?
2. Is the stuff with Ellie and the laptop actually leading to an interesting story this time?
3. We have the bracelet. We have the ring. Is there any other jewelry for the crazy shipper to obsess over and is Zales getting any product placement in the show? -- dkd

1. Yep.  There will be hotness (though I can't promise it will make the final cut) 2. Yes. It will lead us to the finale. 3. I can't think of anything. -- DR

Dear DR, does Kathleen find out who Casey is and do they actually get to interact? -- Cor

Yes.  Though, don't expect it to go on for many episodes.  -- DR

On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate the finale cliffhanger? -- J

Zero. -- DR

Anything you can tell us about how Jack Burton finds out Sarah works for the CIA? -- uplink

He steals her wallet (edit: or purse, whatever, I'm a guy, what do I know?). -- DR

How much does the NFL lockout have to do with CHUCK getting renewed? I seem to recall reading that a long lockout would mean the show gets a fifth season. Is that true? And if so, how long would the lockout need to last? -- BC

However long NBC feels they need to wait to know.  -- DR

How do you get to be so handsome? Obligatory compliment over and now onto my question: Are they going to kill someone off CHUCK (as in at least a recurring guest star like Bryce or Papa B)? -- Michael

They are certainly going to try. -- DR

What's this relationship curveball (in the 4.20 synopsis) all about? Should I be worried? -- Anonymous

Not as worried as you should be that your parents named you Anonymous.  The curveball (a baseball term most of the world won't understand) is related to a prenuptial agreement and Sarah's conflict over Chuck's attitude. -- DR

Of all the great songs up to this point on the series of CHUCK, can you give me a list of your favorite songs that appeared in the show? -- Patrick

There are just too many to name them all but my favorite use of a song has to be Signs by Bloc Party (2.16).  I also loved Young Blood by The Naked and Famous (4.13) and Feeling Good by Nina Simone was pretty epic (3.14).  Not to mention all the uses of Bon Iver on the show.  But if I were to make a top 10 list of my favorite songs on this show, it would take me a week to pick the perfect songs.  No show has had a bigger affect on my love for music. -- DR

Will Alex have an opportunity to show off her fighting skills again? -- Lucia

I am sorry to say... no. -- DR

With CHUCK's ratings dropping to a 1.5 what is the chance that Fedak and company will change their mind to end the season finale on a cliffhanger? -- Poopmonster McGee

I don't see how they could avoid it at this point.  It feels like the ending is geared toward this cliffhanger.  So, as much as I wish they weren't doing it, I would be very surprised if they don't.  But please, show runners, surprise me by not doing it.  -- DR

Dear almighty DR, just wondering about a comment Chris Fedak made in an interview about Morgan and how he is now doing the Chuck journey all over. Does he just mean learning about how to be a spy or will it get more dark for him - ie shooting a gun or getting in way too over his head. Or will they keep him the happy-go-lucky character? -- Maddie

Morgan is definitely going to find new and exciting ways to get in way over his head.  But if there is going to be anything super dark in his future, it will not be this season.  -- DR

Dear DR, does Jill make an appearance in the final 5? -- Larry

Sadly, no. -- DR

Dear DR, is Agent X going to be a big thing and is Ellie going to be in some fighting scenes? -- Canadian Greg

I hope Agent X is a big thing.  As for Ellie doing fighting scenes... I guess she could be if she is an Intersect, if that is to what you are alluding.  So, no. -- DR

There was this sentence in CHUCK season 4 DVD review on Amazon - "In the second *finale*, Chuck and Sara [sic] must escape the revenge of the Volkov [sic] family long enough to bring off their own wedding. " Does this guy knows something we don't? -- Harku the Molester

Very generalized supposition.  So, nope.  -- DR

CHUCK gets the same Live+7 ratings as FRINGE (2.2). CHUCK is now getting a 1.5 on Mondays because of DWTS. Obviously Fridays is not such a wasteland with the FRINGE renewal. What are the odds that NBC looks at Fox's model and renews CHUCK to Friday's. It surely could do just as good as FRINGE right? -- UC15

Moving CHUCK has been discussed but whether they will do it or not is beyond my source's ability to know right now. -- DR

Question related to both original 13 and Agent X story: was Chuck to remain intersect-less until episode 13 and was the whole Agent X storyline supposed to be in the original 13? -- Siemon

Definitely not. -- DR

Could you say that Chuck and Sarah's wedding will be paid for by the CIA or will Chuck have to work at the Buy More forever? -- Sadie

Neither Chuck nor Sarah will be paying for any wedding.  By season's end, Chuck will pretty much solidify his desire to be a Buy Moron forever. -- DR

CHUCK fans are awesome and I know they like to give to charity, is there anything going on where I can donate? -- Awesome Chuck Fan

YES!  Our Princess Bailey is doing another fundraiser with her school and needs your help!  Click the link and donate as much as you can.  Thanks: http://www.mymathathon.org/BaileyB -- DR

Dear DR, I really enjoy your spoilers and I am wondering will they EVER have a mission-free episode? Like for the season finale, because I really do not want a mission on their wedding day! And are the bachelor/bachelorette parties going to be wild or is it going to be ANOTHER mission episode? -- Jade

4.21 is the closest you will get to a non-mission episode. 

Chuck's bachelor party (in 4.22) goes all wrong with some hilarious results.  Sarah seems to get a more traditional bachelorette party with hot male strippers all up in her personal space. -- DR


Dear DR, CHUCK won the Hulu and TVLine best show on TV polls. How much will that influence NBC when it comes to renewal? -- Andreas the Little Girls

It will have no impact.  Internet polls are virtually ignored by network executives.  It is too easy to set up auto voting bots.  100 people can vote tens of thousands of times.  There is no way to accurately judge their legitimacy.  The only thing that may have any weight is the USA Today TV survey and even that is a stretch.  But polls are just ways to get fans to hit a website over and over.  Whether you want to believe it or not, they are meaningless.  Plus, if you notice on the Hulu site, the mention of CHUCK winning isn't even on the first banner panel and they misspelled "Winner." (and if you don't believe me, read what Zachary Levi said about it) -- DR

Jeffster has appeared in the climactic scenes of the last two season finales, will they make it three in a row? -- Anonymous

I don't remember them being in the Intersect room in season 2 or Papa B's basement in season 3.  If you mean to ask if they will be playing during an action sequence, then I am pretty sure they won't.  But anything could change from now until they finish the episode. -- DR

Do you like this next story arc? (The cliffhanger aside, of course). -- Mamemimomu

They all have potential.  4.20 has all the makings of a classic badass episode with a couple of very funny bits.  4.21 could be a new fan favorite with Sarah's back story getting some much requested focus.  4.22 sounds to me like an episode built to maximize on the comedy.  4.23 is a big setup for the finale with some cliffhanger elements that will definitely elevate concern for our characters.  And then 4.24 is a massive episode that has a movie's worth of story to tell in 43 minutes.  So... as I often say, execution is key, but I plan on enjoying these final five episodes as much as possible. -- DR

I am sure everyone is going to ask about a wedding, but is there a funeral in the finale? -- Amrit's Puppet

Yep. -- DR

Dear DR, what is the most significant unresolved plot thread/story element that would lead into Season 5? -- Gringo Chuck Fan

This season ends on some significant game changers that the writers could do away with in one episode, or could decide to use to go in an interesting direction next season.  It all depends on their desire to be interesting or predictable. The season ending cliffhanger will at least frame the 5th season.  Also, (it is possible that) a new element is introduced to the grander story that fans will sit around discussing for a while and demand an answer to for the next year.  -- DR

NEW

Dear DR, will we see a wedding in the finale? -- Hellen

Let me put it this way, the finale is not a wedding episode.  It is a hero episode.  Whether or not you see Chuck and Sarah married is up to you to find out while watching.  Though, I strongly suggest that anyone deeply invested in seeing that temper their expectations and enjoy the ride. -- DR

  3. I'm at 700 votes @ hulu, and I have no intention of stopping, whatever they may or may not be worth. My handwritten letters have been written as well. There seems to be quite the comment war over on Facebook regarding the hulu voting this week. I honestly believe your posts throughout this season have helped boost Chuck fans and keep them doing whatever they can to get our show renewed. You have my supreme thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Cool! I wanted to know about Agent X too :).

    Thanks Magnus.

  5. Adrienne, I don't know how much I have had to do with it but thank you for the kind words.

  6. Any time :) I've proposed a contest over at Facebook - whoever votes the most gets a free footlong from Subway. I've informed everybody of my sandwich preferences, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  7. 50/50? Really? Seems incredibly optimistic. How reliable is your source?

    ReplyDelete
  8. Same source that called back six in season 3 and discounted TVBTN's source of a back six in season 4 (saying it would be more). So, so far he has been pretty darn accurate.

    ReplyDelete
  9. What do you think accounts for the slightly upped chances? Anything else I can do?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Nah. It is internal stuff. They just look at revenue streams.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Well, my cat loves his new sleep sheep, and I will keep voting away. I'm determined to not argue but intelligently debate the...person who is leaving disparaging comments about Chuck on Facebook. It's about time my English degree came to good use...

    ReplyDelete
  12. Thanks for this new blog.

    I'm glad to hear your source has upped the odds on a Chuck renewal.

    Do you think they are waiting to see the ratings of the next new episode or is literally going to be about the various revenue streams and accounting stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  13. It's an interesting factoid about the car, but i guess you can't really tell anything about Sarah involvment in the spy story in upcomming episodes.

    ReplyDelete
  14. dkd, I need to talk to him again later in the week. But I will touch base with you offline about something he said. I don't want to share it with the world just yet. I think it could be misleading.

    ReplyDelete
  15. J says ...

    Can you give a few more details about Sarah's new car ?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Sarah's new car is a sports car. It is made in the UK.

    ReplyDelete
  17. J says ...

    Is it from " Q " branch ? Lol.

    Is it just a regular sports car or will it have some cool gadgets ?

    Thanks for the dear DR by the way . You're pretty Rad !

    ReplyDelete
  18. Will there be any legitimate jealousy situations involving Chuck and Sarah (i.e. someone starting to fall for or getting seriously affectionate towards Chuck, Sarah or Chuck having to seduce a "mark," or anything similar)before the season ends?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hey there, Magnus. Thanks for the Q&A. Really, really looking forward to the new episodes, but also excited to see how 'Chuck' handles the bachelor/bachelorette parties for Chuck and Sarah, Haha. Makes me wonder who'd be at Sarah's...

    Take care!

    ReplyDelete
  20. A great Aston Martin I hope :D

    ReplyDelete
  21. Cooler than that. It fits Sarah.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sarah used to have a Porsche. I'll go with a Jaguar (or a Lotus, maybe?)

    ReplyDelete
  23. J asks ...

    What episode does Sarah's car make it's appearance ?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ummm... next episode, I believe.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well I hope they don't give her Shaw's old Lotus. lol hopefully something much cooler than that. Hopefully its a Bentley GTC. So is the fact that Sarah has more money than Chuck the relationship curveball?

    As far as the laptop goes is it connected to the PSP or was the connection in First Fight just a coincidence and it was just the lame plot device we were told by Mary it was?

    ReplyDelete
  26. is nbc only focusing on new episode ratings and not repeated ones aired, such as in next weeks case.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hey magnus,
    i am probably sure you have heard about the hulu contest for bet in show?
    if not here is the link: http://www.hulu.com/bestinshow
    it looks like chuck will beat out the best of the best. do you think this can have an impact upon renewal or is it a useful contest that will do none other than make chuck fans feel good

    ReplyDelete
  28. Does Sarah's dad just pop up or does somebody contact him?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Patrick, it won't even have the tiniest of impacts on the show's renewal chances.

    ReplyDelete
  30. but impressive all the same no? must be the most watched show on hulu. as a chuck fan i am proud of it

    ReplyDelete
  31. Will it be the typical Sarah in a tiny outfit hotness? Or actual newlywed/engaged hotness with TWO people?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Should I stop voting then? I've voted about 1,500 times today and I'm getting kind of depressed seeing Dexter slowly gaining on us. I can't help but have one of those tiny little superstitious feelings that if I stop, it will have some sort of negative impact.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yay for new Sarah car! My vote is for the new McLaren! Also how does she acquire this car? Stolen from the personal collection of Alexi Volkoff? Gift from Vivian for saving her life maybe? Pre-wedding present from Chuck?

    -OPD

    ReplyDelete
  34. Shaw drove a Tesla roadster. Pity they wasted it on him, that's a freaking awesome car.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Sorry Magnus for my stupid question nena

    ReplyDelete
  36. rich says
    imdb says that 4.24 is called "vs the cliffhanger"

    ...please tell me there isn't a big one. They could ruin a pretty perfect series with an ending that needs more, if the show gets cancelled.

  37. Magnus, you are my god =)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hi Magnus,
    I wonder why your source would be more optimistic now than few weeks ago, considering the decreasing ratings ?
    It would mean that other factors are taken in consideration . Can you tell us which ones ?

    Thanks for your answers.

  39. What can Chuck fans outside the US do to get the ratings of the new/old episodes up? Because we can't watch the episodes on NBC here in Belgium...

  40. Sanders, not much. If you are a religious person, pray.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Thank you for answering the questions!

    Can you elaborate on your zero for the finale cliffhanger?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Great and powerful DR,
    Thank you for the questions you did answer during this long Chuck vacuum.
    One burning question I have is that earlyer it was reported that 4.20 would have a pirate character yet in reading the official synopsis that does not seem to be the case. Is the pirate out or will the writers squeeze him in too?

    TS
    P.S.
    The stripper at Sarah's party turns out to be an assassin. Does Chuck have to deal with an assassin at his party too?

    ReplyDelete
  43. I don't remember the pirate thing coming up in conversation with my sources. It could be in there. And yes, both parties turn into missions.

    Burkey, I will elaborate a bit in a different question coming up.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thanks for the info Magnus. Can't wait for the upcoming episodes.

    Is it safe to assume that Elie will join the CIA too?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Magnus,

    This is what I was talking about for ep4.20
    "Ellyas, a Somali pirate type in his mid-30s guest stars. He’s a tough guy guerilla fighter who thinks he’s the toughest guy in the world, but when the one man he fears turns up, he isn’t quite as confident." That isn't going to happen in4.20 is it?

    TS

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh a Somali pirate... I don't bother my sources about casting calls. Virtually anyone can get their hands on them so, I have no idea if that specific character is in the episode.

    ReplyDelete
  47. A prenuptial agreement? Haha, yeah, if I got a flashy new sports car I also would like to have a prenuptial agreement..

    I am curious if it is Sarah's who wants one and Chuck objects, or is it Chuck's idea to protect Sarah's assets and Sarah objects? (For the mainly reason I have also a prenup - not for protecting my business but for protecting my wife and daughter in case my company would get in serious financial troubles. )

    We will see in 4.20 I guess. Funny that the writers don't leave no stone untouched to bring up all classic pre-wedding issues.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Do you mean an actual prenuptial agreement, like a legal document? Or an agreement they are making before they get married (pre-nuptial)? Seems odd to me for either one of them as characters but I'll go with it.

    -OPD

    ReplyDelete
  49. YAY: Mama B!!

    Oh, I am loooving the prenup storyline. It is always the safest and smartest way to go (Arsimo is right), but it is still a very sensitive issue. I imagine it could lead to some very funny interactions.

    And the car...hmmm, what I would like to see:
    *Lotus Evora (or an Eterna, but I believe the Eterna is not in production yet, so...)
    * Jaguar XK
    * Bentley Continental GT

    Lotus would be the coolest.

    Great to find out they haven't completely forgotten about Kathleen. I hope most of the interaction doesn't end up on the editing room's floor (or, more accurately, in the computer's recycle bin).

    Papa Burton stealing Sarah's wallet: callback much?

    Thanks Magnus!!!! These are very juicy spoilers!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hmmm, Magnus did not say that the prenup is between Chuck and Sarah. It could be between the couple getting married in the wedding coming up (daughter of a hungarian scientist or something like this)... Chuck could make a classic remark "when there is true love, no prenups are necessary, yadda yadda" (or say quite the opposite...only Magnuy knows, hehe).

    ReplyDelete
  51. Glad you are enjoying the spoilers.

    The car is the Evora.

    ReplyDelete
  52. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Evora + Sarah Walker: super hotness on wheels. TVs are going to melt.

    Oh, the Evora... every girl's dream car.

    ReplyDelete
  53. A prenup. Why the hell would they need a prenup? That doesn't put much faith in them as a couple. Sorry but you only get a prenup
    If you think your sig other is going to leave you and bleed you dry. That makes no sense and it knocks Sarah down alot in my eyes. What happened to the love that Sarah had for Chuck? Pretty dissapointed in this. One may ask why even get married after that. So is the plan to annoy the base so much we are happy they never get married in 4.24?

    ReplyDelete
  54. BTW, does Chuck even have a car?

    ps.: I really love the Evora as a two-seater, but it could be hilarious to have some scenes with Morgan in the tiny backseats if it were a 2+2.
    It was about time she got a new car, her Carrera 4S (that's it if I am not mistaken) cannot measure up to the Evora.

    ReplyDelete
  55. It is Chuck and Sarah's prenup.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hahahahahahahahhaah, the craziness has already begun...so entertaining. Unleash the crazies!

    Oh, anonymous, prenups have nothing to do with love and you don't have to be a lawyer to know that. Anyone who has anything valuable would be irresponsable not to (at least) consider one. And if you are sure love is gonna last forever, than why care about what is written in a prenup? If love is eternal, than a prenup has no use. Prenups are only a problem for those who admit divorce is a possibility.That is called logic. Soooo there is really no reason for freaking out (but please continue to do so, it is fun to read).

    ReplyDelete
  57. I am so happy to see people unhappy about it. We are back, baby!!! Angst returns! Bring on the ratings increase!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  58. @Mamemimomu: the "other wedding" is in 4.21. The curveball aka prenup is in 4.20. So to me it seems really an issue between Chuck and Sarah themselves.

    (and granted, a prenup doesn't have a romantic image but in a lot of cases it is the best thing to do if you really love your other half. Like I explained in my example a prenup has two sides, the main reason can be to protect your other half, not your own!)

    I love it that the writers inserted a more serious and (for some) controversial pre-wedding issue. I cannot wait for 11th April.

    ReplyDelete
  59. My bad about Shaw's car. Glad they went the new route. I think this prenup leads into Fedak's comments about learning about your partner while planning a marriage. I think it will be related to the danger of the lives they have chosen and to protect each other just in case. Sarah will be the practical one and Chuck probably the romantic one but in this case I hope its Sarah that wins this argument.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Would be a nice balance in 4.20: Sarah wins the prenup issue, Chuck is right about Vivian's innocence.

    ReplyDelete
  61. @uplink- good point about it being related to their choice to be spies and the danger it puts them in constantly, would fit with the promo scene of them all getting shot at too.

    -Also, I am kicking myself for overlooking Lotus! Nice choice and definitely suits Sarah.

    -OPD

    ReplyDelete
  62. The Presidential special last Monday on NBC tanked in the ratings. Will that have any impact on Chuck's ratings?

    ReplyDelete
  63. These are really epic spoilers. Epic.

    Reading them again I got very happy for the 50/50 chances of renewal.

    I am also extremely curious about why the cliffhanger is so lame. After thinking about it, I really wasn't expecting much based on the title, because if you really have to pre-hype something on the title, it usually isn't that cool after all.But zero? That is bad.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Moonman,

    Are you married?

    If so did you sign a prenup?
    If not pleade do me a favor ask your fiance for one. I would love to see that implode on you.

    Don't throw the word crazy around unless you experienced these things.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Prenup- I die you only get what we made while married. Dependant on life insurance. All Sarah's assets (money, cars, houses) goes into probate. Chuck gets nada.

    No prenup- if Chuck is the beneficiary of Chuck's estate he getsit all. Life insurance everything.

    So how does a Sarah prenup protect Chuck. It only protects the person that has the assets to lose. If Sarah is requesting the prenup she is doing this to protect herself.

    You only do a prenup if you think there is a possibility of getting screwed over by your significant other. The term taken to the cleaners is used for those who did not sign prenups.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Oh, anonymous, that is not how it is done on this website. We are usually polite, even when there is playfullness and sarcasm. Leave attempts of personal attacks that have nothing to do with the show to those websites which are realms of crazy shippers.
    But since you seem to be sooooo eager to see things "implode" (?) on others, I will have to spoil this for you:
    I am very happily married and, yes, we do have a prenup (which we both wanted). That's what you do when you are a grown up and have assets, but to know that, one has to have them.
    In case you don't know, in most of the countries, if one spouse has any financial setback (such as a malpractice lawsuit, bankrupcy or has to pay punitive damages for a traffic accident that caused the death of someone), it can reach the entire wealth of the couple and they can both lose everything. If they have a prenup, the other spouse is protected and the family isn't left penniless.
    BTW, I am not called "moonman", and I am a woman, and I - let's not be shocked here, ok? - work and earn my own money, which I happily spend on my husband as much as he spends on me.
    Though I believe that a prenup is the smartest thing to do, I know and respect people that opt against it. You should try that: respecting others doesn't hurt.
    And just for fun, I'd like to throw the word CRAZY around again: CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY. Ok, that is enough.

    ReplyDelete
  67. @rac2873: there are several kinds of prenups. Your lawyer can write them as one wishes. It can state that the couple has separate assets, but that one inherits everything when the other dies.
    Prenups are usually very flexible.

    Ok, I am done with the law-related issues. I visit this website to have fun, not to explain stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'd like to thank **Mamemimomu** for providing information on prenuptial agreements. Clearly, there's a lot of misinformation about them.

    ReplyDelete
  69. DR looks like this one worked. ;)

    BTW whay is everyone automatically thinking it is Sarah's idea? It could easily be Chuck trying to protect Sarah once he learns she has the money she has.

    I would really love that twist actually and maybe it is what Magnus is doing here. Remember he likes us to think outside the box? So I'm now going with it being Chuck's idea to protect her and she doesn't want it.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Thanks for the spoilers, cryptic enough not to ruin everything.
    Gotta echo Mamemimomu's request above about the cliffhanger being a zero out of 10, is it bad or just predictable?
    Also this improvement from 30/70 to 50/50, I have to ask if you can elaborate at all?

    Keep up the good work, hopefully you will get to continue into season 5 and beyond.

    Palmer

    ReplyDelete
  71. @dkd: Thank you for understanding the point :)

    @uplink: Interesting idea. Chuck willing to sign one and Sarah being against it.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Wow, people care more about the prenup than any other spoiler. There is so much more to the show Chuck than will they prenup or not.

    Who are the writers trying to kill off?
    Chuck? - no. unless they change the show name to SARAH.
    Sarah? - hell no! ratings would drop to 0.2!!
    Cassey? - no, he has already had his medical attention this season. Every season he seems to need some.
    Morgan? - not likely but it works for me.
    Ellie - would cover her real life preggers.
    Devin, or any of the buymorons - what would they do to be in danger?
    Carina, Momma B, or Zondra? - Carina's death would shake up Chuck, Sarah, Cassey and Morgan.
    Momma B would be too much like last season.
    Zondra would shake up Sarah only.

    The intersect clearly existed before she went away, Orion did not want his children to have it (at least back then), so it would appear logical to plan to intersect a CIA agent, Mama B. This never happened because she had to stay with Volkoff, but he already had all his data about her as a potential candidate.

    I don't like Ellie as agent X, and I think Chuck as agent X would be too redundant.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Probably Sarah has a lot of money, so Chuck is who wants a prenup. They are not going to fight over money, I'm sure of that

    ReplyDelete
  75. Well after what has been some lackluster posting here lately this has certainly stepped things up.

    On the other spoilers, thanks Magnus for the answer to mine. I should have guessed Jack would have done something like that. Fits what we saw previously.

    On the Casey Kathleen plot, will that cause a conflict between him and Alex, or Alex and Morgan?

    As far as the laptop, I don't think there is anything besides the wedding that I am more excited about going forward. I hope and believe this is the final end of clueless Ellie. I just hope we also get a better resolution to the PSP story with it. Especially if Mary is involved in keeping her from her work. How does Mary even know about it?

    All in all some great stuff coming and it looks like folks are caught up on the spoiler of probably the most minor importance lol.

    ReplyDelete
  76. And to think... the really shocking stuff is still to come!!!

    Or maybe not. You never truly know how people might overreact.

    ReplyDelete
  77. If Magnus says " the really shocking stuff is still to come!!!" I believe him ... we ain't seen nothing yet.

  78. I think "try to kill" means someone will almost be killed. If that's the case, anyone could be the person almost killed. It may be more than one person.

    It's interesting that so many people think "Agent X" is someone other than Chuck. I just thought the files are about Chuck but filed as an alias. Ellie would be learning about an agent who has an intersect, not knowing it's her own brother. The title "Chuck vs. Agent X" could just be a trick title.

    Maybe I'm wrong, though.

    "And to think... the really shocking stuff is still to come!!!"

    Who knew a pre-nup could cause such controversy? I could only get worse when people find out that Sarah withholds sex until Chuck signs it. Moo-hah-hah.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Shaw gets her real name and shows her the Kama Sutra first. Chuck gets a prenup. What a lucky guy. But you get that kind of crap marrying a conman's daughter. Seems like we should add Chuck to the people Sarah doesn't trust. Is this prenup protecting her runaway bride stash.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Great to see you stirring up the troops again Magnus. I was a little worried about you.
    And to think ... the really shocking stuff is still to come!!!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Will there be any jealousy coming up between Chuck and Sarah?

    ReplyDelete
  82. Magnus, did the showrunners by any chance figure out why the 18-49 male demo fell?

    And why does your source say that the chances of Chuck getting another season went to 50/50 up from 30/70? What could make your source seem so optimistic despite the ratings drop?

    Also, what does your source say about the chances of moving Chuck to a different time slot? And have the showrunners discussed ways of changing the storyline to bring back more male Nielsen viewers in the 18-49 demo?

    ReplyDelete
  83. I don't know what the show runners specifically have talked about, so I can't answer that one. I doubt anyone knows why the 18-34 demo is disappearing. We can only guess and I think we have covered that to death already. As for season 5 storylines, let's worry about season 4 for now.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Yeah TPTB will probably never right the wrong of having Shaw be the one that learns her real name first but oh well - did the question of what your overall thoughts of the last 5 eps get asked?

  90. As I learned from Strahotski.com forum, I am no more than a glorified troll AND... I spend more time promoting myself than the show.

    It is always good to know that TWO YEARS OF MY LIFE where I didn't make ONE PENNY, two major fan events where nearly the whole cast showed up where we raised about $40,000, and that I DIDN'T EVEN ATTEND, were all about me.

    It hurts to know that such a respected site would slag me in such a way. And by respected I mean creepers.

    ReplyDelete
  91. But is there at least another reference to the real name debacle in the final episodes? Or do they just ignore it forever?

    ReplyDelete
  92. Pay no attention to those creepers behind the curtain. “We can be Heroes, Just for one day” (David Bowie). You've been one for over 730 days!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Time to start banning people for talking about Fake Name? SHE IS SARAH WALKER TO CHUCK! THAT IS WHO SHE IS. Move on.

    ReplyDelete
  94. @Magnus: I didn't know they were Charlie Sheen disciples in the Strahotski forum.

    I suppose that if you are a troll, they are the tiger-blood-drinking-warlocks?

    I believe that sanity stands on your side of things. Let they think they are "winning".

  97. Good that they are going to ignore the name debacle. Any explanation would be lame and just make it worse.

    Can you ellaborate on how Jack Burton finds out that she is CIA by stealing her wallet? It's not like she has a CIA membership card, right :)

    ReplyDelete
  98. HI Strahotski readers! HI!!!! I know you are reading this right now!

    Go be creepy all over your forums now.

    Freaks.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Mamemmememe, so you are telling me that Sarah has never shown a CIA badge before?

    ReplyDelete
  100. @Magnus: Sure, but I had never seen her wallet in any scene in which she showed her badge, I thought she put it in a pocket or something. A badge is quite bulky for a woman's wallet.
    I guess I was hoping her dad would only find an indirect hint, then snoop around and end up getting involved in something CIAish.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I remember Sarah showing her badge in the "vs. The Tooth" episode. It was at the symphony when she and Chuck approached the security detail of foreign president. They both showed their badges.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Also in Best Friend right before Chuck's Nerd Herder blew up.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I remember those scenes, but there was never a wallet :)

    ReplyDelete
  104. Right, because it couldn't be done any other way but how it was done before. She couldn't possibly have any ID that would be in her wallet because you have never seen it before.

    Someone call up the CHUCK set and have them shut the whole operation down.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Ok, seriously, while i don't post there i sometimes visit the forum, as some posters there are fast with getting info about the show and actors...and frankly i have yet to see any creepy posts/bahavior on that forum...so calling them like that is quite rude.

    Also i would think you would be used being called a troll by posters on different forums...since it wasn't first and most likely won't be last.

    ReplyDelete
  106. So let's get this straight... they can call me a troll and whatever else, and that is fine because I should just be used to it. But I call them creepers and that is something you need to defend?

    And the whole site is a creeper obsession.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Fake Name is not the reason why the male 18-49 demo is shrinking recently.
    Male Nielsen viewers don't care about Sarah's real name, and Fake Name was a season 3 episode anyway.

    I hate to say this, but: The wedding storyline may be, in fact, a large part of the many reasons for the decrease in the male 18-49 demo.
    Maybe they should have just had Sarah and Chuck elope and marry secretly in one episode.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Well, that isn't happening so... nothing is changing at this point. The episodes have been written and the production is nearing the finale.

    ReplyDelete
  109. So every fansite about actors is creepy obsession? I mean lets be serious here. And no it's not ok to call you troll, so you always could call that one poster an idiot, but to call all of them creeps is just not fine, especially that i visit that forum as well and i don't feel creppy at all nor did i found there any creepy posts, because it's as much an fansite as this one.

    Frankly i have heard more "Yvonne is so hawt" in your podcast than i've seen on that site.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Will there be a specific scene introducing Sarah's car ? Like will somebody ask Chuck where Sarah is and then boom , she pulls up in the lotus gets out and gets the wind machine treatment ? Or will she just all of a sudden have it ?

    It would be funny in a later episode they had chuck try to drive it , like in vs the ex where he had no idea how to drive the Ferrari and kept grinding the gears lol . I can just imagine Sarah /Yvonne's facial expression :)

    ReplyDelete
  111. Do you think it's the storylines or the writers who are causing the ratings drop?

    My mom says it's a mistake to blame the writers or the storylines for falling ratings.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Harku, Yvonne is hot. But I don't dedicate a whole site to obsessing over how hot she is. That is creepy. But this is about YOU right now because you visit the site and you don't want to be thought of as creepy. Well, I suggest you run to their site and defend how not creepy you and they are and then rally the troops to take me down!!!

    Come on! I must be stopped! Creeps unite! Take down Chuckgasmic!

    ReplyDelete
  113. melwicker, writers make the choices but they can't write a show constantly worrying about ratings. So, stop looking for fault. Sometimes things just are the way they are. The writers made choices that didn't work as well as they had hoped. Audiences found things to occupy their time that wasn't CHUCK. It happens.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Oh nice personal insults. And you visit that site as well, so you must be quite a creep yourself. And again i don't really need to defend it, i visit it, i'm not ashamed of it, i know it's content and there is nothing creepy about it - pretty much the same info that can be found here about Chuck and about actors work. Hardly any obsessing.

    ReplyDelete
  115. No, Harku the Creeper, I don't visit the site. I saw hits on my site from their forum and I followed the link and that is when I saw the discussion. Only a total creeper would go the the main page.

  116. rich says
    I didn't go through the comments and read to see if this has been asked, so ignore it if it has.

    "On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate the finale cliffhanger? -- J
    Zero"

    is it possible that the writers named this episode this way ONLY because the wanted to sway nbc's renewal decision the slightest bit, but there is nothing cliffhangy about the ending of 4.24?

    ReplyDelete
  117. Does the whole episode sound unappealing or just the last few minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Magnus, I think my mom agrees with you about whether I should stop looking for someone or something to blame the bad ratings on.
    I think my mom agrees that I should stop blaming the writers for the falling ratings, when the writers were merely trying to tell the story they wanted to tell.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Also, I still think a 50/50 chance of renewal or cancellation is bad even though it was seemingly up from 30/70.

    I would like to see better odds in favor of renewal but the all important Nielsen ratings say otherwise.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Your mom is wise.

    People like to find someone to blame when things don't go well but sometimes blaming someone specific is just a way to find a scapegoat. We could argue until we are blue in the face about why this and why that but it will all be conjecture. There were steady drops for three seasons. Season 2 started that trend.

    ReplyDelete
  121. melwicker, I just said to someone today that once I posted the 50/50 some seemed to take it like it was 90/10. It is still just 50/50. Not all that great but better than 10/90. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  122. You didn't accept my last post, but it doesn't matter. If ppl will check the site they will see there is nothing creepy in forum nor on the main site, which is pretty much like every fansite about actor there is. So you just came off as a big ass.

    And again thank you for name calling.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Harku, you big nutjob, I didn't approve your last comment because you used an EXPLETIVE which you know is not allowed.

    P.S.

    You sound creepier and creepier the more you promote that site. Please stop. Everyone already knows I am an ass. Why keep reminding them you are a creeper?

    ReplyDelete
  124. Can you ease my mind and rule out pregnancy as the cliffhanger, because...ew. No more babies for a while.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Sue, if I start ruling things out, then eventually you will figure it out. So, no. I will not rule out a pregnancy.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Ehh, hardly used an expletive, it was not worse than ass. Again, thank you for name calling.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Ah, Magnus, you may be an a$$, but you are a wise, funny, and lovable one.

    ReplyDelete
  128. That's ok. I understand, people wondering about the cliffhanger is some of the only momentum the show has going for it right now. It shouldn't be ruined.

    Thanks for trying to keep people excited about the show.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Maybe the cliffhanger is that Morgan knocks up Casey's daughter....and Casey tries to KILL Morgan!

    Naw, i doubt the writers would go that route...it would be funny though.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Harku, what you said is an expletive, which is why it is not allowed on network TV until after 10pm.

    And you are welcome for the name calling. It was earned by your defense of my newly sworn enemies.

    Moohahaha.

  132. OMG! What if it isn't her wallet? What if it is her purse?! I AM WRONG?!

  133. I hope the cliffhanger is that Chuck and Sarah don't get married. I think it's time they broke up and started seeing other people....like maybe Sarah can start dating this new CIA Eraser guy! Or Kevin Bacon...

    -oink

    ReplyDelete
  134. oink, I agree. Sarah is way too hot and slutty for marriage.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Magnus, did you just call Sarah Walker a slut?? Shame on you for that.
    Sarah has a reason to be the way she is, she was used and abused by her con-man father. She didn't really have a good childhood. And the CIA used her as a weapon.
    It's time for her character to be treated as a human being and as a unique individual in her own right. And she certainly needs some more character development and some self-discovery.
    Yes, I am a feminist and a Women's Rights activist.

  136. melwicker... let the adults have their sarcasm, please.

    ReplyDelete
  137. P.S.

    You got your Sarah Walker analysis from me. So, no one is a bigger feminist than this little guy. If you can't figure out that I am mocking crazy shippers, after ALL I HAVE SAID IN DEFENSE OF SARAH WALKER, then you should go hang out with Harku over at creephotski.com.

    ReplyDelete
  138. It's now official. I will miss this site more than I will CHUCK itself whenever its run comes to an end. Not sure if I'll ever follow any other show like I've followed CHUCK over the last two seasons Magnus, but if I do, I'll be hoping that you've got some tie to it. Thanks gain for the many months of entertainment, a lot of which has surpassed the show at times. As I said, I’ll miss this place.
    P.S. Wait a minute, there’s always Stahotski.com, right? Hmmm, if I only owned a trench coat…

    ReplyDelete
  139. Oh! Sorry, Magnus, for getting all riled up.

    I'm sorry for not noticing your sarcasm. I have a bad tendency to not recognize sarcasm when I see it.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Awwwww, bg, you make me have the snifflies.

    Let's hug in your trench-coat and talk about the happy times when Sarah Walker was a slut and when she used to give it up to every guy that wasn't Chuck. Sigh, I will miss crazy shippers.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Now we are all one big happy family again... except for Harku who decided he was on the side of the creepers.

    Everyone wave goodbye to Harku. You will be missed.

  144. P.S.

    I miss you, Harku... come back. All is forgiven?

    ReplyDelete
  145. So, Magnus. You've said that you wish they would skip the cliffhanger and also that it rates a zero out of 10. I'm wondering how to interpret these two things together. Is the 0 because it's fairly lame as such things go? Or is it something that just leaves no closure and a bad taste in everyone's mouth in case there isn't a 5th season?

    Jim

    ReplyDelete
  146. Jim, I think I answer that in the blog posting in a question or two. :)

    ReplyDelete
  147. I'm disappointed that the writers have done so little with Alex. Wasn't she about to graduate from college at the end of season 3? I thought she was supposed to be pursuing a career in law enforcement. Didn't Casey tell her that her days at the pie shack were numbered? Mekenna Melvin is a black belt, isn't she? Why not take advantage of that and allow her to fight some bad guys/girls? Even her relationship with her father is woefully underdeveloped. I mean, she's had no reaction at all to him abandoning her mother for his career. When was the last time Alex Jr. and Sr. spent time together? I don't know why they bothered introducing the McHugh women and the whole Alex Coburn storyline. Sorry to complain so much.



    Lucia

    ReplyDelete
  148. I am curious about the answer to Jim's question. Lame or distasteful ending?

    I'm ok with any ending as long as its not a wedding cliffhanger. No "If anyone has any reason that these 2 should not be married speak now or forever hold your piece...shots ring out" fade to black. So I'm going with lame. After the very classy way the proposal was handled in Push Mix I think its something like someone else getting Intersected, the pregnancy test results or something else.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Jim just asked basically the same question I had so...all that is left is to thank you for all the time you devote to the fandom.

    You rock! Thanks :-).

    ReplyDelete
  150. Lucia, I thought the writers would find more to do with Alex. But they will at least pay off that whole setup in a couple of episodes so... at least we get some closure.

    ReplyDelete
  151. Thanks, Mel. Who is the adorable kid in your avatar?!

  152. uplink, "or something else." Sounds like you have covered every possible scenario with that one. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  153. Well we have what 7 weeks to go so why spoil the cliffhanger so early. Besides this way I can say "I was right 7 weeks ago Look here!!"

    Hey this season has been a shippers love affair and being one, it is definitely my favorite so I really don't see the likelihood of something that would upset me. Plus no matter what else it is even if they don't get renewed will be the source of some great FF stories that will be a lot of fun to read in the years to come so I'm ok with whats coming.

    And DR thanks for adding some real excitement to the fanbase today. The site bashing I can do without but that's just me. I skip it and try to read between the lines for some good info.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Magnus,
    Thank you for entertaining us this evening, you are GREAT! It is amazing you're still sane after continuously addressing, and turning the crazy talk that people pull out of their behinds, into something funny. Some people should appreciate what you are doing for us a little more.
    THANK YOU
    That being said, bring on more spoilers!

  166. @melwicker

    Oh I'm well aware of that and I get the sarcasm and that sometimes folks need to be called out on over the top stuff. The stalkers on YT that go after her private life really need a b***h slap. I'm just not interested in fansite wars that's all. But its Magnus's site and he can run it as he sees fit. It certainly added to the excitement today so it has its place I guess. I just prefer to talk about the show and not the fans.

    ReplyDelete
  167. I have just made a deal (with an underlord) that if the show gets picked up for a 5th season, that this site will turn into a full blown adults only site!

    That means full frontal expletives and lots of xXx ads to pay for my drinking habit!

    So, hope for a 5th season because I am super cool when I get to use naughty words.

    ReplyDelete
  168. uplink, they drew first blood. I react to provocation. If people don't want me to mess with them, then why do they plead to be messed with?

    I have only just beguneth to fight! And I have loads of ammo.

    Man, I live for a good fight. What does that say about me? Nothing good, I hope.

    ReplyDelete
  169. The sky's green, Magnus. Gosh. Didn't you get the memo? Also seems like I missed a ton of excitement today.

    ReplyDelete
  170. Green? What do you think this is, Mars?

    ReplyDelete
  171. "More spoilers please" says:

    Hmmm. A Prenup? Sounds like something Sarah's dad would introduce in an effort to protect his daughter from the schnook!

    ReplyDelete
  172. What color is the new Evora??? Blue?

    ReplyDelete
  173. How did we end up talking about the sky anyway?

    Actually, no one tell me. I am afraid of what I might learn about the last few hours.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Would you update us with Chuck's chances of renewal?

    Besides, Mars has an orange sky because of all the hematite dust (iron oxide, aka rust) in it's atmosphere. The same dust that gives its soil and it's entire surface it's famous red color. A little science for you.

    ReplyDelete
  175. So i wonder why they give Sarah another super sports car? Does she really need it anyways? and what about Chuck ? does he still drive that lame nerd herder?

    ReplyDelete
  176. It seems odd to me that there could be an issue with a prenup in any form - in the last three and a half seasons there has never been one time where they've portrayed chuck as having any issues with money at all - aside from that 'you remember I work at the buy more' in response to sarahs wedding stuff, a statement that had its own problems (ie he's not been on an agents wage for the last season and a half? Huh?) - how can they have chuck feeling any particular way about it, whether it was him wanting one or not wanting one, that would upset Sarah, without it feeling forced? Just seems odd that a show that has never had a financial thread suddenly throws in a financial issue. Eh.

    ReplyDelete
  177. If the show isn't picked up for a 5th season, do you think the cliff hanger would help get us a wrap up episode?

    ReplyDelete
  178. your spoilers keep me going during these long weeks without chuck. its funny - i have never followed a show like i do with chuck. i don't want it to end on season 4 - i love been part of this whole fandom too much, there are some seriously crazy people out there and i love reading about what they get so worked up over - its always the tiny things...anyway this was just a long way round to say thanks - love reading your site and your little titbits have kept me going whenever there has been a hiatus

  181. Thank you Magnus - once again you have provided an entertaining and informative diversion during this break in the action. It's been interesting reading your spoiler teasers as well as the reaction of your readers (I'm kind of curious how your site traffic has increased?)
    But I do have one question - one I don't remember reading when the call for questions came out - but with all this talk of cliff hangers and things you hope the writers don't do - here goes:

    Will Chuck and Sarah get married this season?

    I know, I know, you will never reveal a major plot point - something I really respect about you - and this is a specific question! I just figured I'd throw this out there and see what sage words you have.

    And Yes, I will miss this site when you finally end it!

  182. Looks like ep4.20 has everything Ruthless Volkoffs, Ruthless CIA assassin, Somali pirate, Something terrible happens to someone we love, and a prenup. All thats missing is a dancing bear. Agent X isn't a dancing bear I hope ;) (LOL)

  187. Magnus, who will be attending Sarah's Bachelorette party? Ellie, Alex, probably Carina and Zondra maybe GBecks? Also where will it be?

    BTW sorry about getting the sky discussion started last night. But diversions happen. Wonder what clashes will come today?

  188. TS, when CHUCK goes, I will simply transition to a different site where I have big plans for the future. No worries, I plan on going on for a long time after this (unless I die, of course).

  189. So try not to die Magnus. We need our spoilery-sarcastic fix.

    Back to the dancing bear ... I would be happy if Sarah was dancing bare ;) I kept waiting for someone else to say it first.

  191. I think either magnus or fedak has said that both parties turn into a mission so I guess that rules G Becks from being at either party....since she is the one most likely giving the orders.....for the cliffhanger I predict that they all run off (chuck, sarah, casey, ellie, awesome, morgan) and start there lives on the run...before they do that chuck and sarah get sex changes.....

  192. Or if chuck and sarah cannot get married they become attached like siamese twins surgically...this will be there commitment to never leave each other....lol

  193. Thanks for answering mine, awesome DR. I hadn't figured on Casey/Kathleen getting much time given how badly they've shorted Alex's character and thus Casey/Alex this season.

    And given how quickly it's happening I'm not expecting a positive C/K outcome with chirpy birdies (OMG do you think they could have a TRIPLE WEDDING with C/S and Morgan/Alex OMG OMG!), but I was kind of hoping it would finally get some closure. It sounds like that's the case.

    As I said before...let the haters howl. Because you're such a lovable troll.

  194. I wonder if they could do a thelma and louise kind of thing where team b are in a van heading towards a cliff with everyone chasing them only to run out of gas before hitting the ledge or it is literal cliffhanger and the van is balanced on the ledge or chuck is holding onto a cliff edge whilst holding onto sarah and cut to black. Or maybe someone like shaw kidnaps sarah at the end of the season....who knows? it is tough to guess....
