Chuck's mom walks in to be with Ellie. When Chuck asks who the Contessa is, Eimacher says she's not a person, she's a ship. This review may contain spoilers. As Awesome leaves, Jeff blocks him while Lester steals the push mix. I would not go that far, if only because sets such a high damn bar, and had an action component that the hospital scenes obviously lacked.
To that we can add the sideways reference to FlashForward with their evidence wall, Morgan's yoga, and the abduction of an entirely innocent person, who just looks like someone they'd like to interrogate. It probably had more power for being done this way. It wasn't like that in this episode, nothing surprised me, I knew 10 minutes in how everything was going to play out so there were not really any strong feelings watching it.

I had to take points away because Lester is at his best when he is truly rocking out and hitting the high notes and unfortunately he was thrown out before that could happen. Ellie opens the door, revealing a couple suited federal agents. A nurse steps out of the delivery room and invites one family member in. Volkoff tells Chuck he forgot one thing: all of Volkoff's men are stationed outside. While this show has definitly given me tons of laughs and feel good moments none had been as impactful as yesterdays!! The group arrives at the door to the server room.
I watched my mom leave us and my dad follow her. When Beckamn signs off, Morgan wants to distract Chuck, so he asks if his bud wants to play a little bocce? From the look on Ellie's face when her mom walked in to the proposal, it was like the toys holding hands in Toy Story 3 all over again. The music should be raw, unfiltered, live. It's capped off with the very predictable, but no less hilarious arrival at the hospital of Jeffster for their very own push mix. Josh Schwartz that the last 10 minutes were the best in Chuck history and whilst I would disagree with this statement it was most definitely an excellent ending and would have satisfied as a season finale. Chuck rushes up and hugs his friend, realizing moments later that Morgan is mostly naked.
Volkoff tells Chuck that he's now responsible for the deaths of his friends and family. Now as a midseason episode, it was 5-star perfection.

When they interrogate him, it turns out he is not working with Volkoff, but was kidnapped to design the eye. Outside the delivery room, Chuck and Sarah sit smiling and taking in each other's presence. Everything worked out too well! Volkoff strokes her cheek and says he's going to visit her husband.

Volkoff explains that the ship is equipped with sonar-based stealth capabilities, anti-aircraft missiles, and an ice cream parlor! With their work done, Morgan wonders if they are going on a suicide mission? The last 10 minutes was definitely worth watching. . In his office, Volkoff is nearly crushed by his elevator doors, and gets flashed at by his office lights. The screen jumps to life again, filling itself with repeated copies of one word: Orion!! Chuck explains to Volkoff that the fake communiqué from Orion was more than just a play on Volkoff's jealousy; it was also a virus that will now transfer the entire Hydra network into the cabin's computer.

Armand insists that The Ring killed Orion, but Volkoff sends him out regardless, and tells Armand that he'll be with the Contessa.

And for once in this season they even managed to illicit some decent acting from Linda Hamilton, having watched Timothy Dalton redefine crazy over the past weeks. Toboggan: I'll give it a 7. Morgan informs her that Chuck has a plan. This was my father's mission.
