Beckman tells Casey good job bringing in Mary Bartowski, aka Frost. She was with them until 20 years ago, when she turned; they never heard from her again. The General goes on to tell Sarah that Mary is being moved to an area where she will have contact with no one; especially her son, Chuck. She asks Sarah to keep an eye on Chuck, and Sarah agrees to do so. Beckman asks how Chuck is doing. Sarah pauses to draw breath, and Casey jumps in. Chuck is calm. very calm. Incredibly calm.
Next shot, Chuck is yelling at Morgan, test-driving his Sarah speech for how she could kidnap his mom?! She was going to spend five minutes with Ellie and then disappear quietly. Sarah destroyed all that. Why couldn't she trust Chuck to handle things!? Morgan tells him he did well, but he shouldn't use the F-word. Chuck says he didn't. Morgan thought he did but no. Well, maybe it just seemed like he did, because he was so intense. Anyway. Chuck and Sarah have never been in a big fight before. Morgan says that a couple's first fight sets the tone for all future arguments; he would know. He's going through that very thing himself right now. Not he and Alex, his girlfriend. He's going through it with Casey.
Chuck and Morgan find an ancient computer of his dad's. Morgan says doesn't the possibility exist that he left something behind for Ellie, not just Chuck? He goes to touch base with Ellie, but she stopped getting messages from their dad sometime before he passed away. She says it's not like we can just waltz into the CIA center and ask mom questions, right?
So Chuck waltzes into the CIA center, chatting everybody up and acting nonchalant. He waltzes right back out when he sees Casey going for the artillery.
Sarah comes home, and softly calls Chuck's name. She doesn't see Morgan behind the door. He makes a comment about sneaking into her own home, and she almost takes him down. They sit down to discuss Chuck, his mom, and Ellie.
Chuck didn't go far. He found his mom, and went to her cell. He says he's there to help her. She doesn't know why, what with the CIA thinking she's a traitor and all. Chuck says he's going to prove her innocence. He runs down everything Beckman said at the top of the show, and his mom agrees that all of it is true. Chuck is taken aback. The reason she turned was because Volkoff was one step away from finding out that she's a mom. So she actually, literally cut all ties with the CIA so he wouldn't go after her family. Mary would like to share more, but she's afraid Chuck will run off and tell his girlfriend. He says that'd be pretty hard, since they are on the outs, and barely speaking. His mom asks if he wants to discuss it, but he says no. He goes ahead and mentions that you'd think Sarah could or would trust him, but then returns to telling Mary that he won't tell Sarah.
She fills him in. There's one person at MI-6 who can confirm that everything she's telling him is true. His name is Gregory Tuttle, and they are supposed to have a meeting today at the Old Duke Tavern. She gives Chuck the code he will need so that Tuttle will know he's legit. Tuttle doesn't know Chuck is his son. Nobody does.
Ellie is going through old papers trying to find out if the advertising of a '68 Mustang that's been posted every day since her dad passed is supposed to be some kind of a message to her.
Morgan confronts Casey about lying. When Casey found out Mrs. Bartowski was on Volkoff's team, he lied to Morgan. He told him that her story was legit, when it was exactly the opposite. He can't stand to be lied to by his partner - and friend. Casey rolls his eyes and walks away.
Chuck asks Morgan to wear an earpiece, and be his eyes and ears for the Tuttle meeting. Don't draw any attention to himself, don't order food or drink. Don't be sitting there talking to himself. It's NOT for personal conversations, just LISTEN. Morgan says not a problem, but wants to be reminded to tell Chuck about his chat with Sarah. Chuck wants to know what happened, and practically blows his own cover. The earpiece goes nuts, and Morgan takes it out. While he's examining it, he drops it in his water glass. He slams down the whole glass so he can get the earpiece out, but before he can do so, the bartender gives him a refill.
Tuttle arrives, and threatens to kill Chuck with a plastic fork. Chuck finally remembers the password and relays it so Tuttle can trust him. They don't have much time to talk, as the wait staff shoots both of them with tranquilizing darts. Morgan missed everything because he was in the bathroom, drying the earpiece. When he comes out, Chuck and Tuttle are gone.
The agent who shot them has Chuck and Tuttle on a plane. She intends to torture them until somebody tells her where Frost is.
Morgan filled in Casey and Sarah, and they went to Mary's cell.
Tuttle gets himself free, then frees Chuck. A fight breaks out on the plane. Chuck flashes. Chuck's taking the worst of the fight. Tuttle throws him a knife, and it lands in the back of the enemy agent.
Sarah tells Mary to help them find Chuck. She refuses to work with them until she gets to see Ellie. She knows Chuck is safe with Tuttle. Mary thinks maybe Chuck doesn't want to see Sarah, since he did tell her they were fighting. They are at a standoff, until Morgan walks in. Mary says she hasn't seen him since he was nine. Morgan hasn't had a decent Rice Krispie treat since. Things turn serious. Morgan will make sure she sees Ellie if she tells them where Chuck is. Mary will tell them where Chuck is, just as soon as she sees Ellie.
Chuck can't get to the cockpit, so Tuttle is looking for parachutes. He finds one. The woman guard wakes up, so they have to jump. Chuck wakes up in the back of a truck, with a bunch of sheep. Chuck starts sharing with Tuttle about Sarah, and their First Fight.
Morgan, Casey, Sarah and Mary arrive at Ellie's. Mary greets her by her full name. Ellie pours her some lemonade. Mary apologizes for things being so complicated. She only remembers Ellie as a gawky girl. They reminisce a bit. Mary's favorite memory is Ellie riding with Mary and Steven in his 1968 Mustang convertible. Elie asks for the truth of what happened. Mary says it begins with a scientist. His code name was Ryan, but his real name was Steven Bartowski. They talk for some time, and Casey announces it's time to leave. Mary can't hug her because she's handcuffed, but she brushes Ellie's hair back. They both have tears in their eyes. Mary leaves.
Sarah tells her to make the call so they can meet with Tuttle, who is supposed to be with Chuck.
Tuttle and Chuck are at a bank, getting something from a safety deposit box that will clear Chuck's mom.
Ellie tells Devon that the car in the ads isn't a code, it's the car. She's supposed to go buy the car.
Casey, Sarah and Mary arrive at the bank where Tuttle and Chuck are. The disks that will prove she's not a traitor will only fit in an MI-6 computer in London. Chuck recognizes the disks from the computer he and Morgan were looking at earlier, and he tells them they don't need to go to London. There's a computer that can read it right here in LA. Sarah refuses to let Mary go, she has her orders. Chuck pleads with her. The woman from the plane marches in with a bunch of goons. One fires at the ceiling. They are Volkoff's men. Tuttle reassures Sarah about her fight with Chuck. She asks Chuck if there's anybody he hasn't talked to about their fight. Besides her. He hasn't talked to her.
Morgan and Casey are watching from outside. They're going to go in the back and take Volkoff's crew by surprise.
Sarah and Chuck fight their way from cover to cover through the bank. They agree to take the initiative against the bad guys instead of running and hiding. They talk things through as they kick ass and take names. He tells her he needs her to really believe in him. Even when he's wrong. The scarred woman shoots at Chuck, but Tuttle throws himself in front and takes the bullet. He gives the disks to Chuck, to clear his mom. Sarah radios Casey and gives Mary her handcuff key. They go to see the disks.
Casey and Morgan go in to free the bank hostages and get Tuttle to safety.
Sarah and Chuck are loading the disk while Mary wanders the files from her dead husband. The disk is empty. Sarah goes, gun drawn, to find Mary. Mary holds up a screen that Chuck's dad never wanted him to see. She knows he was wrong. Chuck's eyes and mind absorb everything on it. He asks what she did to him as Sarah orders Chuck to get down. He turns around just as Sarah is knocked unconscious by Tuttle, who no longer looks like a homeless man. He's dressed like James Bond, and has a wicked smile on his face. Chuck asks him what happened. He tells him there is no Tuttle. His name is Alexis Volkoff. He believes Chuck was looking for him, he says - and then he knocks Chuck out.
Chuck and Sarah are bound to chairs. Chuck asks his mom why she's doing this. Alexis is saying how pathetic it is that Steven Bartowski spent his life looking for a woman who didn't want to be found. A man who was so desperate to believe that his wife wasn't exactly what she appeared to be. A traitor. Chuck tells Volkoff that his father was a good man. Volkoff counters that Steven was a fool. Just like Chuck.
Volkoff notes that Frost is a master of deception; but she wasn't able to fool Sarah, was she. Volkoff leaves a detonator on Chuck's leg. Chuck catches his mom's eye and tells her he believed in her. Volkoff tells him not to take it personally. There's no point in going to the grave with regrets. Before Mary leaves, she puts a razor in Sarah's hand and whispers in her ear. "Protect him."
She smiles, and walks away with Volkoff. Chuck tells Sarah that whatever his mom did to him, he can't flash anymore. When they leave, Sarah frees herself and tells Chuck that at the very least his mom doesn't want them dead right now. They escape, and all Chuck's dad's work is destroyed. The intersect is gone, and now all his dad's research is gone now, too.
Ellie and Devon get the car. There's a note for her. She'll always be his little girl. He trusts she'll know what to do with the car. We see some horizontal green lights unit thing behind her. Share this article with your friends
