    Let's hear it for Big Mike. For he took out The Leader and is therefore The Man!

    Personally, I would like to see Casey find true love somewhere
    But I don't think Sarah and Chuck are meant to be together. Obviously there is that chemistry, but she is an act... a personna. Sarah Walker is a character. Chuck loves the character and she lets him do it because it's her job to keep him content and helping.
    I would like to see the ending with Chuck happy and "Sarah" moving on to a different assignment.

    ^But it's so obvious that Sarah (or whoever she REALLY is underneath the Sarah disguise) loves Chuck too!

    She loves bumbling Chuck. The more action man he becomes, the less she's going to be into him, no matter how much she fights the declination of her love for the poor bastard. So really, the less like a spy an applicant is, the more she loves some guy... Sarah's perfect mate is Jeff.

    That OC girl needs to come back.

    Is it?
    To me, it's her doing her job... which is to protect the asset
    And what better way to protect him than to keep him close to her, confiding in her

    I don't see love... I see an agent doing her job

    It's the premise of the entire relationship. She loves Chuck. Period.

    Look at reaction shots when Chuck's not looking at her.

    Are you Tighs working eye or Tigh's plucked and discarded with the food waste eye?

    Sure most of the time what you say, seems to be true because Sarah has to be in denial since lives are on the line as well as her wage packet... (Does Chuck get paid?)

    but when they thought the intersect was going to be gone from him , she ordered him to ask him on a date, then there was that kiss when they were dying, what Bryce figured out because she couldn't sharp shoot around chuck, and that crazy red head spy from like the third episode said that she always tries to screw Sarah's boyfriends so Chuck was in her sights, and John larroquette figured it out and played them both for giggles... I thought Sarah was going to explode all the while Jill was on the scene being all kissy and why don't you come up to my room.

    Sarah is the girl.

    They're the leads in a romantic comedy. It's not like they have a choice. ;)

    From now till the end of the show is just us twiddling our thumbs waiting for the inevitable.

    Oops, then the actress playing Sarah is doing a shitty job. But I think she's doing an adequate and none-too-subtle job of conveying the fact that Sarah is madly in love with Chuck and that will never change because the format of romantic comedy demands it.

    The mystery is why the CIA cares if she and Chuck have sex. Obviously the damage is done if she's and Chuck are romantically involved, and they are involved, regardless of whether anyone will admit it. But romantic comedy also requires the leads be kept apart till the wedding day. Downright Victorian of them!
    You are evil. :guffaw:

    Well said. I also wanted to add Sarah's reaction when she thought MCD's character threw Chuck off the roof in the S2 premiere.

    I have no doubt she likes the guy... But there are times when you put your feelings behind you
    She has done so
    And, her liking of the boy shouldn't be taken as romantic
    I see how she looks at him...
    But that's not what's there!

    No, if anything we see Casey not wanting to shoot Chuck after being ordered to!

    I really disagree.

    Yes, she has definitely been forced to put her feelings behind her because of her job, but the feelings are still there. It's part of the nature of her character: she falls in love with her partner.

    I don't mean to sound rude, but if you can't see that Sarah loves Chuck, then I really don't think you've been paying attention.

    Yes, after spending so much time with Chuck, both Sarah and Casey have grown attached to him. But Casey would most definitely kill him before Sarah ever would.

    I wonder how difficult it was for Casey to shoot Bryce in the pilot?

    I saw My Bodyguard the other day.

    Gosh, he was cute when he was little.

    I doubt Casey had a hard time shooting him at all. I'm not even sure they knew each other before that.

    Chuck needs to spend some time being tortured by Casey for his ridiculous stupidity, get over it buddy, Jill would have set you on fire if it was to her gain.

    The ending was a let down, they don't kill the bad guys enough on this show ;)

    Are you suggesting that she's pretending to be in love with him, and further pretending to hide it badly that she appears to be in love with himi to anyone paying attention?

    I think she likes him, but love... no, I don't think she does
    I've seen her reactions. She cares for him... but I don't think it's romantic love

    On How I met your Mother they use sex to condition good dental hygiene.

    or...
