bartowski, saturday 4:30 PM
We see the inside of Chuck and Sarah's apartment, with a
large pile of luggage and shopping bags in the center of the living room.
The door opens and we see CHUCK and SARAH enter the flat
carrying several bags of luggage.
Wow. The CIA has great luggage handling service.
I can't believe they shipped our stuff all the way back here after the
After everything we did for America's prestige in the world
in Rome, I'm not surprised.
We bought so much stuff...how are we going to fit it all in
monday 10:00 am
Chuck, CASEY, MORGAN, JEFF, LESTER and BIG MIKE are busy
stacking XBox Kinects into a display pyramid.
So Charles, how was your honeymoon? I hear your little
adventure around the world was interrupted?
It was fine. Thanks for asking.
Why didn't you ask us to be the band at your wedding?
After my sister's first wedding, I think Jeffster and
weddings just don't mix.
We're all so happy for you and Sarah, Chuck. You're
moving on to bigger and better things.
I'm not going anywhere.
Chuck hears some ringing on his iPhone. He picks it up
and the Caller ID picture shows it's General BECKMAN. Chuck answers the
Chuck...come down to Castle immediately. And bring
Colonel Casey and Grimes with you.
Chuck puts his iPhone away and motions to Casey and Morgan.
Come on...need your help with something.
Casey grunts and they go off to Castle together.
monday 10:15 am
Sarah is already seated at a meeting table in front of the
monitor while Casey, Morgan and Chuck stroll in. They take their
From behind a wall Beckman strolls in to meet them in person.
Bartowskis, Colonel, Grimes...
Chuck and Sarah smile at each other.
General...it's been so long...glad you could drop by in
person to assign us our next mission.
I'm actually here to ask you for help on a personal
investigation of my own. Would you all be willing to help me?
What do you need us for?
Tomorrow night there will be a charity gaming and
entertainment event hosted by several local charities, such as Ken Mar Animal
Rescue. It will be taking place at Disneyland in Anaheim.
Great! We can go on the Buzz Lightyear ride!
Not this time Grimes. I need your help at the
Cinderella Castle. There will be Baccarat tables set up inside and
several prominant and wealthy locals will be there. I need you to mix
I don't understand General.
One of my associates, Elaine Victor, will be attending...
Elaine Victor of Victory Aerospace Corporation?
Yes...she will be participating in the Baccarat tournament,
where I will also be playing. We like to play at Baccarat charity events
Elaine Victor is a famous LA philanthropist and all-around
model citizen. What's your concern with her? Is she being stalked
Like Lester or Jeff?
I'm serious Grimes. Yes...I'm concerned about Elaine
because she is wealthy and all...and she cheats.
bartowski, monday 8:30 pm
Chuck and Sarah are in the living room unpacking their
I don't get it. Why would Elaine Victor cheat?
She's super rich...she's the owner of the largest privately owned corporation
in America, if not the world. Why would Beckman think she's
cheating? Maybe Elaine's really good at Baccarat?
Nobody wins that much at casinos. I agree with
Beckman...something fishy is going on.
I can't believe we bought so much stuff. Good thing the
CIA shipped it for us...it would have cost a fortune to move all this.
Where are we going to store all this stuff?
Morgan's moved out, remember? We can use his room for
casey, monday 8:45 pm
Casey and Morgan are watching TV together.
You know, John, it's great that we're staying together.
I mean now Alex can visit both of us at the same time.
Casey just grunts.
Though now we've got a lot more stuff. Hard for 2
adults to share a space when they got so much baggage.
What are you saying? You going to move out?
Don't worry John. I'd never run out on you like that.
Casey grunts disappointedly.
bartowski, fountain - tuesday 8:00 am
Chuck, Sarah, Casey and Morgan have stepped out and are
preparing to drive to Castle together when they bump into AWESOME, ELLIE and a
REAL ESTATE AGENT.
Hey! What are all of you up to?
Headed off to work now. Who's your friend?
Ohh...this is Lisa, our real estate agent.
What are you doing with a real estate agent?
Devon and I are feeling cramped and now that Clara is able to
move around more we want to get a bigger place.
And it's always better to buy than to rent. At least
the mortgage we are paying it back to ourselves. And if the property
appreciates in value, we may even make a profit, which would be totally awesome.
tuesday 10:00 am
Chuck, Sarah, Casey and Morgan are sitting at a meeting table
studying security camera footage of Elaine Victor playing various gambling
games at various casinos.
I don't get it. I don't see her using any form of
cheating...no mirrors...no hidden cards in her sleeves, no fancy hand
I don't even know how to cheat at cards.
I guess that's one of the things I learnt from my dad.
Then I think we should offer Beckman our help by showing up
there. Take a look firsthand.
So I guess Casey and I got to get our waiter and bartender
No...serving plates with wine glassses and crowded bars
obscure your view...you won't be any use to us if you can't get a good view of
Elaine while she's playing with Beckman.
So what do you suggest?
Let's do this like a typical casino con. I'll ask
Beckman to get Casey and I seats at her and Elaine's baccarat table.
Chuck, you and Morgan will watch as spectators.
Circle the table so you get a good view of Elaine. Can
you do that?
disneyland, tuesday 7:30 pm
The camera shows a picture of Cinderella Castle with guests
outside, all dressed in glamorous night gowns and tuxedos.
cinderella's castle, tuesday 7:35 pm
We see a baccarat table set up with Beckman, ELAINE Victor,
Sarah, Casey, another guest and the dealer playing Baccarat. Chuck stands
behind Sarah watching Elaine in his peripheral vision while Morgan very
awkwardly circles the table trying to observe Elaine, which she notices with
The dealer deals some cards from the shoe. Bets are
placed on the table. Elaine looks at her cards and her face goes into an
expression which Chuck recognizes...the expression of an Intersect flash!
Chuck taps Sarah gently on the shoulder.
Can we break for a bit?
Sarah gets up and holding hands with Chuck, they walk over to
an isolated area.
Casey and Beckman politely excuse themselves and Morgan joins
them as well.
I figured it out. I know how she cheats.
I didn't notice anything.
She has an Intersect.
What?!?! Are you sure Chuck?
Yeah...I'm sure. I recognized the face.
What can we do? We can't prove she has an
Intersect...Intersect data is classified.
I got an idea.
What are you suggesting Sarah?
You got a con?
I got the ultimate con. I'm married to the ultimate
What do you want me to do? I don't know how to cheat!
I just want you to play at the same level as Elaine. I
just need you to flash on the same things she did.
Oohh...OK...I think I can do that.
Beckman and Casey return to the table first. Sarah then
leads Chuck back to the table, gives him a kiss for good luck and motions for
him to take her place.
Chuck sits down, looks at the deck of cards, and
concentrates. Chuck flashes on Baccarat and card counting skills.
He then smiles at Sarah.
OK. I'm ready to go!
CUT to Tuesday 8:45 pm, and several hands have been played,
and money has been gambled. So far Elaine and Chuck are tied for winning
the most earnings. Chuck is grinning and Sarah is cheering him on.
Beckman, Casey and Morgan play it cool and observe Elaine, who is beginning to
You play a good game.
Thanks. You too.
May the best gambler win.
Elaine and Chuck continue to play, virtually tied in
winnings, until Elaine starts to look stressed and tired...and Chuck starts to
take the lead.
CUT to Tuesday, 9:15 pm
Chuck has won the game. Sarah gives him a
congratulatory kiss. Elaine, who still looks stressed, Beckman and Casey
engage in polite conversation when Beckman motions Chuck and Sarah to come over.
Elaine...these are some colleagues of mine who were recently
Chuck shakes hands with Elaine, whose hands tremble a little.
Pleased to meet you Chuck.
Sarah steps forward and shakes hands with Elaine and notices
something about Elaine's trembling.
My name's Bartowski. Sarah Bartowski.
So..what do you two do? Are you in the national
security business like Diane?
Yes...they work for me.
Interesting...perhaps we can discuss more later.
Sorry...but I have to take a helicopter ride back home now. Have to get
to work early tomorrow.
So you live nearby your research facility in Ludlow?
Nearby Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Base?
Yes...we are working with the US military on the Moonraker
project...a hypersonic jet that can take off from a typical runway and fly into
Elaine waves bye and leaves with her bodyguards.
Well done Chuck. Get some rest. We'll talk about
castle, wednesday 10:30 am
Chuck, Sarah, Casey, Morgan and Beckman sit at the meeting
Chuck, are you sure Elaine has an Intersect?
Absolutely...I don't know how...but she definitely was
flashing during that game.
Any chance she noticed your flashes?
She didn't seem to pick up on anything.
Well...I noticed she doesn't have a governor...so she may
have been a little too stressed to focus. I noticed the more she flashed,
the more stress she showed. She needs a governor if she is to continue to
be an Intersect.
This is of great concern to the President. We can't
have another Intersect running around that's not under our control.
Casey, Grimes, Bartowski, go check out Victory Aerospace's R and D facility out
You Chuck. I want you there to see if you can flash on
Casey, Chuck, and Morgan head out together. Sarah turns
What about me ma'am?
I want to talk to you about something.
casey's crown vic, wednesday 11:30 am
Chuck, Morgan and Casey are on their way to Ludlow.
This is so cool. Just us 3 guys on this mission.
The 3 amigos!
Casey grunts scarcastically.
Why do you think Beckman's not having Sarah come with
us? We could use her help.
No idea...why don't you call Sarah and ask?
OK...Wow...look at those beautiful houses...Where are we?
I think this is Victorville...
BARTOWSKI, FOUNTAIN - wednesday 11:45 am
Sarah is headed back home when Ellie and Awesome show up.
Hi! How was house shopping today?
We visited a couple of townhouses nearby that were nice, but
we haven't settled on anything yet.
Awesome starts heading towards the entrance of the courtyard.
I gotta go pick up Clara from your mother's. I'll be
What about you Sarah? Don't you have to work today?
Well...I'm working from home today.
You look really excited. Why are you all smiles?
Well...I spoke with General Beckman, and she suggested I
submit an application for a position in the local CIA office.
What type of position?
A Director position.
Wow...sounds great! Good luck! Can we talk more
victory aerospace, tuesday 1:00 pm
Chuck, Morgan and Casey are greeted by Elaine and are being
taken on a tour of the facility.
Wow! This is really impressive!
Thank you...I take great pride in my work.
They enter a secured area via a door protected by a
computerized lock, which Elaine opens with a key card.
Over here we have our software development lab.
Chuck, Casey and Morgan look at the workers who are all
huddled over their computers. Beyond the programmers Chuck notices a room
with a chair and CAT scanner, strangely similar to the apparatus he was
connected to in vs the Suburbs and vs Phase Three.
Elaine then takes them over to the hanger, where they get
their first glimpse of the prototype Moonraker aerospace plane. Morgan
whistles in admiration while Casey grunts impressed by the aircraft.
Chuck starts to flash on one of the engineers examining the
plane and looks to Elaine, whom he notices is not flashing. The engineer
is a Fulcrum scientist code named Theseus who worked on the Fulcrum Intersect
project, and then worked with the Belgium for a short while.
This is it. My pride and joy. The
Moonraker. It can acheive speeds of up to Mach 7 thanks to its onboard
Aren't nuclear reactors too heavy for aircraft?
They were. We had a breakthrough in synthetic materials
research and were able to produce a light-weight yet heat resistant metal for
the reactor core. In fact, the whole aircraft is made of that
material. It's the main reason we're able to get this prototype to escape
the lower atmosphere.
This would dramatically reduce the cost of space logistics
for the US government. You probably got NASA knocking at your door now.
Not yet. We still have to perfect the engines so the
plane can escape the upper atmosphere. Our end goal is to reach
geostationary orbit altitude.
Is there a bathroom around here? I really need to go.
Come with me.
bathroom, tuesday 1:15 pm
Chuck, Casey and Morgan are washing their hands side by side
using up all 3 sinks in the bathroom.
This whole place is freaking scary. Do you know how
many aerospace companies gave up on designing aerospace planes?
More than I can remember. And it's way too dangerous to
put a nuclear reactor on an aircraft...doesn't make sense to me.
I flashed on one of the engineers in the hangar. His
codename is Theseus and he used to work with Perseus on the Fulcrum Intersect
project, then worked with the Belgium for a while in Thailand.
So that's our Intersect connection.
I don't get it. When I looked at Theseus and flashed,
Elaine was looking in his direction too. But she didn't flash.
So maybe your Intersect is more complete than hers.
I don't know. Did you notice how calm and relaxed she
was today? No signs of Intersect stress like last night.
Good observation Bartowski. I never realized that.
This place is freaking me out. Everybody in that
computer lab looks really creepy.
I know buddy. But it comes with the job.
Let's regroup at Castle with Sarah and Beckman and discuss
victory aerospace, tuesday 1:30 pm
Chuck, Casey and Morgan are outside and getting ready to
leave. Elaine is seeing them off.
I hope you enjoyed my tour.
Thanks! It was great!
I'd love to fly the Moonraker one day.
Elaine just laughs.
Thanks for visiting. Say hello to Diane for me.
castle, tuesday 3:45 pm
Chuck, Casey, Morgan, Sarah and Beckman are discussing the
It was really weird General. Last night I saw Elaine
flash...and today...no flashing and no Intersect stress whatsoever.
And call me paranoid, but there is something really wrong
going on in that computer lab.
They had Intersect equipment in their computer lab. I
Fine...Colonel, I want you leading this investigation.
Do some digging into Victory Aerospace's history.
What about the Intersect over there?
The Intersect is top secret and only supposed to be in our
hands. Sarah, make sure it's destroyed.
I have to go to the local CIA office downtown. Colonel,
you're in charge of this mission.
Casey lets out a satisfied grunt as Beckman walks away.
takes Chuck's arm and leads him into the
castle supply room, tuesday 4:00 pm
Sarah pulls Chuck into the supply room and closes the door
behind her. Chuck excitedly grabs her and is about to kiss her when Sarah
No...I didn't drag you in here for that. Well...not
this time anyway.
Chuck looks disappointed.
I have something great to tell you.
What is it? Is it about what you stayed behind with
Beckman to talk about?
Sarah waits a beat.
The CIA is really thrilled about your work and after Rome,
the President has pretty well written you a blank check.
Great! When can I cash it?
Not literally. I mean...last week Beckman made a
presentation to the a joint session of Congress with the President in
attendance. About you.
Wow...what was presented?
Beckman had some ideas for the future of the Intersect
project...your future...and Congress is very supportive of it.
What does that mean for me?
Congress unanimously approved funding for a new department in
the CIA...the Intersect Department...to be based here in LA since you're here.
I get a whole department now?
No. They need someone to head the department. And
Beckman recommended me!
Wow! That's great!
Chuck gives Sarah a hug and kiss.
I don't have the job yet. But Beckman asked me to send
in my application. So I finished it and sent it in while you were away.
You know...my mom and dad were highly regarded in the CIA
too. I'll ask my mom to be a reference for you.
Wait...does that mean you won't be working with Casey and I
in the field anymore?
If I get the position, yes.
Chuck looks sad.
BARTOWSKI, tuesday 6:00 pm
Chuck and Sarah are sitting on the couch together having
pizza (no olives) for dinner. They are watching TV at the same time.
I'm really happy for you Sarah, I am. This promotional
opportunity is something you've wanted for a while.
Yeah...I mean...I want it. But I don't want to leave
you in the field all alone.
I'm going to miss you if you get this.
Chuck...I'm just applying...I don't know if I will get the
offer...or even accept.
The doorbell rings. Chuck gets up to answer it.
He opens the door and we see Ellie and Awesome (who is holding Clara in his
Sorry for interrupting...but we were so excited we had to
drop by to tell you something.
We might have found a place.
Wow! That's exciting! Where?
Well if you don't waste money on fancy Porsche's and the
like, you can save up for a pretty big downpayment.
Sarah looks confused.
Wow...I used to love hanging out at Venice Beach with Morgan
when we were kids.
Yeah...Ellie told me...that's why we were looking in that
area alot. We want a place that will be a great area for Clara to grow up
But it's far from my neurology fellowship at USC as well as
the Westside Medical Centre were Devon works.
It's not far. I spent most of my childhood moving
between states...you two are just moving between different places in LA.
The TV is still playing the nightly news when this story
Earlier today, police found the remains of a scientist
employed at Victory Aerospace in this secluded forest.
Chuck and Sarah look at the TV screen and instantly recognize
Theseus. They look at each other in shock.
Chuck? Sarah? Is everything alright?
CASTLE, WEDNESDAY 10:30 AM
Chuck, Sarah, Casey and Morgan are inside the meeting area
discussing the murder of Theseus.
So...they got themselves a semi-working Intersect in
Elaine...and they eliminate all evidence of developing it. Sounds like a
typical cover up to me.
But why would they take such a big risk in murdering Theseus
especially after you visited?
Elaine may not have known why we were there.
That would be really odd behavior regardless...assuming
Elaine is behind this.
She has an Intersect.
She's got a motive, but that don't make her the murderer.
Grimes' got a point. We need more evidence before we
can build a case.
Why don't we do some digging around on Elaine?
Sarah walks over to the computer and starts entering in
queries. Elaine Victor's face appears on the monitor as well as pictures
in her files.
Well...she's a very typical person. According to this,
she grew up in Montana...went to Stanford to study engineering, worked as an
engineer in Boeing in Seattle for decades...then one day...out of the blue, she
gets an idea and gets seed funding for it from untraceable donors. Next
you have it...she's super rich.
Has no family, never married, no children...no roots...
And therefore very difficult to trace.
How can a hot woman like that stay single? I mean...she
must have male underwear models all over her all the time. Like look at
her...she's in her 40s now but looks just as good, if not better, than Demi
Not every woman just wants to find a husband Morgan.
This is the twenty first century. Maybe she wants to focus on her
And not every woman just wants a hot guy with a super hot body. Some of
us value sincerity...kindness...honesty...much more.
Chuck and Sarah smile at each other.
Maybe we should check out her place in Ludlow?
elaine's estate, ludlow, wednesday 2:30 pm
We see Chuck, Sarah, and Casey quietly slide open a patio
door and enter the house.
The alarms are disabled. As are the security
cameras. We should have about fifteen minutes to poke around.
And Elaine is going to be in a big meeting all day
long. So we should have the house to ourselves.
OK...let's see what we can find.
They look around the house and find nothing suspicious.
Nothing here to even suspect Elaine of being involved with
the murder, let alone the Intersect.
Yeah...but didn't you two notice there are absolutely no
personal photos hanging around?
Look...at least Sarah had that photo of us together on the
way to meet Roan for the first time on her bed stand. Look around here
and there's nothing. It's like a model home.
Well...at least we know she can read.
Casey motions to a coffee table where a newspaper is
lying. We can see that she was reading the story regarding the test
launch of a new prototype submarine launched ballistic missile (SLBM), the
The Trident 3 missile was developed by Lockheed Martin...one
of Victory Aerospace's biggest competitors. She could be just keeping up
on her competition. Maybe she's a very career-oriented woman?
So basically no evidence in her home either. Either she
is completely innocent except for downloading an Intersect...or she's a very
clever criminal mastermind. No matter...this little covert op was a
complete waste of time.
Not a complete waste, Casey. Morgan...we're headed out
now. Make sure nobody's around outside.
pisgah crater, ludlow, wednesday 3:45 pm
Chuck, Sarah, Casey and Morgan are caving in the lava vents
of the Pisgah Crater. They are all dressed in typical caving
wear...coveralls and helmets with lights. Sarah and Casey are thoroughly
enjoying the challenge while Morgan and Chuck struggle to keep up, as they
traverse rough terrain and negotiate steep slopes.
Why didn't we do this for our honeymoon?
Well...it was on the plan for Australia...but we kind of got
distracted with the boat...you know...being alone out there...just the two of
Sarah and Chuck smile at each other and share a kiss.
Casey grunts disgustedly.
I'm glad we're doing this now. Wish Alex was with us.
Casey grunts at Morgan.
It's a good thing I remembered my camera. I'll take
some pictures for her.
Chuck...we should take some pictures for Ellie and Awesome
Good idea. Hey buddy...could you take a picture of my
wife and I down here?
Casey sighs. Sarah smiles at Chuck.
I love the sound of that.
PISGAH CRATER, LUDLOW, WEDNESDAY 4:30 pm
Chuck, Sarah, Casey and Morgan have made their way to a large
underground lake fed by a small waterfall.
This is so beautiful.
Yeah...gotta get a pic for my sis.
Sarah turns around to Casey and motions with her eyes for him
to take Morgan and leave.
OK...you two stay here while Grimes and I check out the other
Can't we stay here for a bit?
Casey grunts, then grabs Morgan and drags him off, leaving
Chuck and Sarah alone.
Why are they leaving?
Sarah grabs Chuck and kisses him passionately.
So we can have some alone time.
Sarah begins to remove Chuck's coveralls.
PISGAH CRATER, LUDLOW, WEDNESDAY 4:40 pm
Casey and Morgan have wandered a bit further down when they
reach an exit from the lava vent to the outside. They stop to rest for a
bit and notice 2 people wearing Victory Aerospace uniforms standing around a
van. The 2 people don't seem to notice Casey and Morgan as they make a
call. Casey and Morgan carefully slip into the shadows to avoid detection.
What are they up to?
Don't know. But that guy seems to be holding some type
of remote control...
The man with the remote presses a button.
pisgah crater, ludlow, wednesday 4:42 pm
We see the Pisgah Crater from a distance and several
explosions go off around it.
PISGAH CRATER, LUDLOW, Wednesday 4:43 pm
Chuck is wearing only his boxers and is covered by Sarah, who
has still has her helmet and coveralls on. They are only lightly covered
by tiny debris.
That must have been several explosives placed all around this
Somebody wanted to make sure we're dead.
Put your clothes back on. We got to find Casey and
PISGAH CRATER, LUDLOW, WEDNESDAY 4:50 pm
Chuck and Sarah are frantically following Casey and Morgan's
GPS trackers when they reach a pile of rocks.
Morgan! Casey! Where are you?!?
They hear some muffled voices and a hand reaches out from the
Sarah and Chuck quickly remove the heaviest rocks to reveal
Casey underneath, shielding Morgan beneath him.
We got caught right near one of their bombs.
There were bombs set all over the crater.
Set by Victory Aerospace. We saw 2 of their people
nearby just before the explosions.
They really wanted to make sure we were dead.
If they wanted that, they would have set the explosives to
cause a cave in. They didn't. They just sealed off all the exits.
So they want to capture us?
Looks like it.
In the background they can hear some people coming.
They quickly begin to whisper.
Looks like their coming to get us.
What are we going to do? We don't have any
weapons...we're trapped in here.
I have an idea.
PISGAH CRATER, LUDLOW, WEDNESDAY 4:55 pm
We see the underground lake where Sarah and Chuck were.
Several Victory Aerospace personnel walk past, armed with machine guns.
They see a pile of rubble with some gloves and caving helmets on top.
Looks like we burried them alive somewhere in this
pile. Let's head back and get a crew down here to dig them out.
The personnel leave.
Casey, Sarah, Chuck and Morgan quietly step out from behind
We got to follow them to the surface.
If they have to go back to the office to get more crew, we
have time to escape.
PISGAH CRATER, LUDLOW, WEDNESDAY 5:15 pm
Chuck, Sarah, Casey and Morgan hide in the shadows in a cave
exit and watch the Victory Aerospace men drive away.
OK...let's get to the van and get out of here.
No...if we take the van from this spot...they know we
Bartowski's right. We got to get as far away by foot as
possible, crash at a motel, and lie low for a bit.
Thank you Casey.
Casey grunts annoyed at Chuck.
OK...if we jog over there, we can get to the highway in about
We go over that flat sand...we leave a ton of footprints for
them to follow.
That's why we're going over the rocks on top and over the
debris left behind by the explosives.
They won't check that side because they know we couldn't have
gotten out that direction since this is the only way in or out now.
OK...let's do this.
As they are leaving the cave entrance and traversing the
rocky rubble, they notice that Victory Aerospace had sealed the area off and
posted signs warning of explosions.
I never noticed those on the way in.
They were set up after we entered the caves.
motel, wednesday 7:30 pm
Chuck, Sarah, Morgan and Casey are limping towards an
My feet are killing me.
Why couldn't we wear more comfortable boots?
It's not the boots. Those boots are better than what
the marines have in Afghanistan. The rocks were too rough.
I need a hot bath right now.
room, wednesday 9:00 pm
We see Chuck and Sarah in their motel room...dressed
casually. Sarah is lying on the bed relaxing...while Chuck gives her a
Thanks...I really needed this.
Suddenly Chuck's iPhone starts ringing. Chuck looks at
the screen and it's Ellie calling. Chuck picks up the phone.
Hey sis...we'll be home late tonight. Everything's
fine...and could you keep this to yourself? Thanks.
Who was that?
Ellie. She heard there was an accident out here and she
was worried about us. I told her we were ok and to not tell anyone
anything yet. That way whoever wanted us will think we're dead.
You're getting better every day. Yet you're still Chuck.
Sarah reminisces for a beat.
It must be nice to have a sister that worries about you all
Are you kidding? It's embarassing at my age!
It's just that I never really had that...I mean my dad was
sort of concerned for me...but never the way Ellie frets about you.
You have it now. Ellie was worrying about you
too. And I'm always worried about you.
Chuck and Sarah hear some knocking at their door.
Chuck opens the door and Casey and Morgan enter.
We have to wait here a bit. The CIA will send us a
new spy van tonight.
Is anyone hungry? I'm starving.
ROOM, WEDNESDAY 9:35 pm
Chuck, Sarah, Casey and Morgan are having Subway sandwiches
together and chatting.
What are Awesome and Ellie so busy with nowadays?
They're looking to move out and up.
Looking for a bigger apartment now that Clara's getting older.
They're looking for a house now.
In LA...that's expensive.
Well they're both doctors...and they've been saving up for
It's going to feel so different with Ellie and Awesome not
next door anymore.
It's going to take them a while. They have to settle on
a place, then buy it...and then escrow has to close...
You obviously know a lot about this.
Kathleen. We bought the house she's living in together.
What's the plan?
We get the new spy van and check out Victory Aerospace
tonight. The sooner the better.
Right...while they still think we're dead.
victory aerospace, thursday 1:05 am
Chuck, Sarah, and Casey are inside the facility and are at
the computerized lock. The lights are all turned off. Chuck flashes
on the lock, attaches his iPhone to
it via USB cable and gets them inside.
Chuck talks into his watch radio:
Hey buddy...we're in.
van, thursday 1:05 am
Morgan watches the monitors in the spy van and listens via
Good. I'm watching from out here and got you covered.
VICTORY AEROSPACE, THURSDAY 1:22 am
Sarah is photographing the Intersect apparatus while Casey
plants explosives within it. Meanwhile, Chuck goes to the servers, opens
CVS source code control and beguns dumping the source code for the Moonraker's
software onto his iPhone.
This is just a prototype Intersect install device. The
software is still far behind the CIA's...
What I want to know is how they got this baby.
We'll find out soon enough. I'm almost done my data
Suddenly the lights are all switched on. Several thugs armed with machine
guns enter the lab, followed by Elaine Victor.
Good morning. I've been expecting you.
Actually, technically speaking, it is morning.
Chuck quickly shuts up.
Surrendur. We have you outnumbered.
Sarah and Casey raise their hands while Chuck carefully slips
his iPhone back into his pocket, then raises his hands also.
Why were you expecting us?
You really think those gloves and helmets on the rubble would
Elaine motions to the guards who take Chuck and restrain him
to the Intersect apparatus.
Mind telling us your plan?
Nobody tells you their plan, moron.
Actually, I will.
Elaine pauses for a beat.
I was introduced to the Belgium and Perseus a while ago by my
brother. They constructed this crude Intersect you see before you.
Elaine walks over to the Intersect chair and begins to run
her fingers through Chuck's hair.
This Intersect is based on data extracted from the Ring's
data grabbing virus released a few years back by Roark Instruments...a front
company for one of the Ring's subsidiaries...as well as some of the skills data
used in the Intersect prototype installed into Daniel Shaw.
If you have all that what do you need our boy for?
The Intersect is still incomplete. It doesn't have all
the intel that has gone into Agent Bartowski.
So you hired the Belgium to build this device to help extract
the data in Chuck's head?
Yes. It's still in the prototype stage, but it should
work. Guards, remove the explosives the saboteurs have placed within it.
Some guards quickly begin searching and removing Casey's
explosives from the Intersect device.
Once finished, Elaine walks over to a PC and presses a
button. A few images appear on a plasma display in front of Chuck, which
causes him to flash. The electrodes taped to Chuck's forehead lead to a
computer with a plotter that starts writing waves. Meanwhile, a computer
screen flashes with the message: DOWNLOADING INTERSECT DATA.
VAN, THURSDAY 1:30 am
Morgan is in the spy van trying to get in touch with Chuck,
Sarah and Casey.
Hello...can anyone hear me?
Suddenly the van door is forced open and Morgan is grabbed
and pulled outside.
moonraker hangar, thursday 1:45 am
Chuck, Sarah, Morgan and Casey are bound by ropes by the
Moonraker aircraft. Elaine motions to her guards to move towards them.
What are you going to do with all that Intersect data?
Sell it to the highest bidder.
So that's it? You just wanted to lure me here so you
could download the Intersect 2.0 in my head?
You think I would go to all the trouble of downloading an
Intersect into my head, visit every gambling event Diane attended and cheated,
just to get the intel from your head?
Why did you go to all that trouble then?
I wanted to get you.
Because you took my brother from me.
You don't have a brother.
My name is not Elaine Victor. It is Elana Volkoff.
Imagine...from Volkoff to Victor...and nobody suspected
So you're doing this for revenge?
For both profit and revenge.
Spoken like a true Volkoff.
So you got the Intersect and you got me. I guess you
plan on getting rid of me?
No...I planned on keeping you...but now that you've given me
Why are you studying the Trident 3? Upset you lost the
contract to Lockheed Martin?
Elaine just ignores them and walks off, motioning to her
guards, who grab Chuck, Sarah, Casey and Morgan and push them into the engine
vents of the Moonraker. Elaine looks over her shoulder at them...
We launch the Moonraker at five tomorrow morning. The
heat from the nuclear engines should instantly vapourize you and leave no
evidence. Especially when the Moonraker achieves orbit. Farewell,
moonraker, engine, thursday 2:00 am
Chuck and Morgan are struggling with their bonds, trying to
break free. Casey is remaining calm while Sarah is carefully fidgeting.
CUE Sarah, who pulls out a knife hidden in her back pocket
and begins to slice through the bonds of her hands. She successfully cuts
through and quickly cuts her ankle bonds.
Where did you hide that? I didn't see you put that
Maybe you should pay more attention to your wife while she's
Sarah cuts Chuck free who helps Morgan untie his bonds while
Sarah cuts Casey free.
The 4 climb out of the engine back into the hangar.
They hear voices and footsteps of guards approaching.
We got to hide somewhere.
How about inside?
Casey quickly and quietly opens the door and climbs inside
the Moonraker. Chuck picks Morgan up and passes him to Casey, who pulls
him into the plane. Casey then grabs Chuck and pulls him up. Chuck
and Casey then grab Sarah and pull her onboard. Sarah quietly closes the
door as the guards enter.
moonraker, cargo cabin, thursday 2:15 am
Chuck, Sarah, Casey and Morgan climb into the cargo area,
which like the space shuttle, has the top designed to open to release
satellites into space. They find a hiding spot behind the space arm and
We can't hide here forever. We got to wait till the
guards clear out and then get out of here.
Right...Casey...you take first watch. Wake us up if the
guards leave within an hour. Otherwise, wake me up and I'll take over.
I'll take the third watch then.
And I'll take the fourth.
Casey nods, goes to a tinted window in the cargo area and
watches outside as Chuck, Sarah, and Morgan sleep.
moonraker, cargo cabin, thursday 5:00 am
A large thud wakes Chuck up. He looks around and
notices Sarah and Morgan still sleeping. Chuck is confused and looks at
his watch. It's 5:00 am. Chuck looks towards Casey, who has fallen
Frantically, Chuck wakes everyone up, and they rush to the
cargo window to see what is happening.
Outside the crew is prepping the Moonraker for launch.
The Moonraker is surrounded by guards. In the background, Elaine and a
scientist are having an emotional discussion.
We're late as it is! Tell the pilots to hurry up or
Elaine storms off miserably while the scientist takes out a
cell phone and makes a call.
We'll never slip past all that security. When will they
They're the flight prep crew. They won't leave until
the Moonraker starts moving...which means we're stuck on this plane.
How do we get out of here then?
I got an idea. Come on, Bartowski. Let's go up
Casey starts moving up while Chuck and Sarah follow.
Casey makes an annoyed grunt and grabs Chuck.
Not you, moron! The other Bartowski.
Sarah just smiles and Sarah and Casey move ahead.
Well we're not just going to sit here and do nothing.
Chuck and Morgan follow.
moonraker pilot cabin, thursday 5:05 pm
Sarah and Casey have strapped themselves into co-pilot and
pilot seats respectively. Chuck sits behind Sarah and Morgan behind Casey.
Sarah and Casey begin checking instruments and adjusting
What exactly are we planning?
The first test flight of the Moonraker.
Let me check the code I downloaded to make sure everything's
Chuck takes out his iPhone and starts checking through the
source code quickly.
What should I do?
You watch every computer screen you can see and scream the
minute you see something weird.
How do I know what's weird?
Casey just grunts at him.
OK...how do I start up the engines? Got it.
Engines starting up.
We hear the engines start to power up and some screens by
Chuck's station start turning on, giving feedback on the stability of the
nuclear reactor onboard.
moonraker hangar, thursday, 5:07 pm
The scientists all notice that the engines are firing
up. They start to back off in fear. One scientist goes to an
intercom and starts pushing a button.
moonraker pilot cabin, thursday, 5:08 pm
Casey and Sarah are prepping the plane for flight.
Casey you better hurry up. I think they are calling for
the guards now.
OK. I'm moving.
Casey presses on a pedal.
MOONRAKER HANGAR, THURSDAY 5:09 pm
The Moonraker starts moving towards the hangar doors.
The guards rush in and fire a few shots at the plane, but the bullets bounce
off harmlessly from the plane.
The hangar doors start to close but the plane picks up speed
and crashes through them.
MOONRAKER PILOT CABIN, THURSDAY 5:12 pm
Casey starts increasing the plane's speed when all of a
sudden his controls lock.
Morgan notices the words AUTO PILOT ENGAGED on a monitor in
Uhh...Casey...did you just engage the auto-pilot?
No. Let me guess...
It just turned on.
It's the software onboard. The plane was pre-programmed
to engage in auto-pilot once we hit a certain speed.
I think there was a specific purpose for this flight.
The software they uploaded to the plane's computers has a lot of things
hardcoded. It can be bypassed...but I need time...
Hurry up Bartowski!
You're referring to me, right?
Chuck turns to a keyboard at his station and starts typing
and moving the track ball.
Wow...it's pretty amazing the interface and systems they
built for the Moonraker. All touch screen...like an iPad.
Honey...there'll be time to play later. Hurry up before
we get flown into a mountain!
The plane suddenly jumps into take-off speed.
Chuck and Morgan start freaking out.
chuck and morgan (together)
Attention DNI...this is Johnny Boy. Tell Beckman we are
requesting permission to land the Moonraker at 29 Palms Airfield.
victory aerospace, thursday, 5:15 pm
We see the Moonraker take off from the runway outside Victory
Aerospace and fly straight up.
MOONRAKER PILOT CABIN, THURSDAY 5:30 pm
Chuck, Sarah, Casey and Morgan are stuck to their seats due
to the G-Forces against them. Chuck is struggling trying to work while
fighting the stresses on his body.
I'm going to need some time to offload this program and
reload the existing command and control program.
Just hang on Chuck! Everything's going to be fine.
Whoa! This is way too much for me.
Those morons never had flight training!
Where are we headed?
Check your station! I think you got the navigator
Morgan looks at the screens and starts touching them.
The Auto Pilot screen then gives Morgan a menu of options, 1 of which is the
ability to see the flight plan. Morgan selects the option and it clearly
shows the Moonraker is being guided into low orbit.
A beeping is heard and Morgan looks at another screen.
Moron! I need to know what that is!
According to the monitor, the Trident 3 prototype was just
test launched from a submarine off the coast of San Diego.
Why are we tracking it?
I think I can answer that. According to the software
code, it looks like Elana's plan was to have the Moonraker go into orbit and
act like a guidance satellite, and redirect the missile to...
Chuck starts scrolling through this code.
She's retargeting the missile to hit Washington DC...the
DNI...she wants to
Can you abort the missile?
No...looks like Elana only had access to the navigation
authentication codes for the Trident 3...
Then get me control of this spaceship so I can ram the
Wait...I got a better idea.
moonraker, low orbit, thursday 5:45 am
We see the Moonraker cruise into orbit, while the Trident 3
missile starts heading towards it.
moonraker, thursday 5:46 am
Casey and Sarah are looking out the cockpit at the
Chuck...did you retarget the missile at us?
No...it should be reversing and starting its decent soon.
moonraker, low orbit, thursday 5:51 am
The Trident 3 missile detaches its booster stage, and
maneouvering thrusters fire on the rentry vehicle, adjusting its course and
setting the warhead on its descent course.
moonraker, low orbit, thursday 6:05 am
Chuck is busy typing in zero gravity while Morgan starts
letting things float in the cabin for fun. Sarah and Casey wait
impatiently for Chuck to restore manual flight control.
Whoa! This is so cool!
Manual pilot program is back online. We can go home now!
Do we have to?
Casey activates the radio.
Twenty nine Palms control...I forgot your callsign...this is
Johnny Boy...requesting clearance for emergency landing. Over.
29 palms control
This is Crow's nest...we read you loud and clear.
Beckman warned us you may need some space. You're all clear for landing.
Got that. We're coming in.
All systems check out. I'm ready here.
Hey buddy! Can you take a pic of me for Ellie?
Chuck has removed his seat belt and is floating around the
Morgan snaps a pic with Chuck's iPhone.
We're Han and Chewie man!
Yeah...we're Han and Chewie buddy...cool!
Morgan has detached his seat belt and is floating around and
acting silly with Chuck.
Honey, would you please come up here so we can have a pic
together for Ellie?
Chuck this is serious. We're on a mission.
Please? Just one zero gravity kiss?
Sarah pauses for a beat. She then smiles and unbuckles
her seat belt, starting to float in zero gravity with Chuck and Morgan.
Fine. Hang on.
Crow's nest...we'll be delayed for about 15 minutes.
Everyone looks at Casey oddly.
I want a picture for Alex!
Casey hastily unbuckles his seat belt.
VICTORY AEROSPACE, THURSDAY, 6:07 pm
We see the warhead from the Trident 3 slam into the office
building, destroying the office with the impact. There is no explosion
because the warhead didn't carry any explosives within as it was for testing
purposes only. However, the impact caused by the acceleration of falling
back to earth from outer space is enough to destroy the building and send
moonraker, thursday 6:35 pm
Sarah and Casey are fastened back in their seats busily
prepping the space plane for re-entry and landing at 29 Palms Marine
Base. Chuck and Morgan are still goofing around in zero gravity.
Everyone buckle up. We have to go back now.
So soon? Come on...Chuck and I are almost done
developing a brand new zero gravity sport!
Going into rentry course. You guys better buckle up
Chuck and Morgan continue to horse around when suddenly they
both fall to the floor.
Told you to get back in your seats and fasten your seat belts!
Sarah starts to giggle.
Are you alright honey?
Chuck and Morgan moan in pain.
They quickly sit back in their seats and put on their safety
Everything's OK here. Looks like we're good for
Software check looks good. Honey...you and Casey have
OK...taking us into re-entry path now.
Casey adjusts his joystick while Sarah flips some
switches. The Moonraker starts to shake violently.
Whoa! Take it easy there! Are you trying to tear
No. It's just that we're skipping on the
atmosphere. Moron, check the navigational systems to make sure we're on
course. I'm killing off the engines now...going to glide her in like a
Chuck looks over Morgan's station.
Everything looks good Casey.
Umm...which moron were you referring to?
The Moonraker starts shaking very violently. Casey is
starting to struggle with the controls, while Sarah frantically presses some
We're encountering a lot of turbulence here, but we should be
back within the atmosphere in a few seconds!
You know buddy...Han and Chewie never had these problems.
Ooohhh....I'm feeling sick...
A few beats pass and Morgan is looking very ill.
Ooohh...buddy...I don't think I can hold it anymore.
Hey! Is there a doggie bag anywhere?
Of course not! This space plane was meant for real
astronauts, not us!
Speak for yourself!
You're not an astronaut!
Umm...Oohh...you wanted to...be...an...astronaut...
Hang in there buddy! I'll find something for you!
Grimes...if you vomit...I'll make you lick your vomit off the
They see clouds and suddenly the clear blue sky and land
ahead of them.
That's California up ahead. We should be landing in a
I'm adjusting the flaps...firing breaking thrusters to slow
The plane starts rocking even more.
Morgan...I need you to focus on the flight trajectory
panel. In about a few seconds we are going to have to level off to a 30
degree descent otherwise we're going to crash!
This is an obvious ruse to keep Morgan preoccupied and
focused so he won't focus on his motion sickness.
Casey looks at Sarah strangely but Sarah ignores him.
Looks like Crow's Nest is sending up a homing beacon for us
Forget it Bartowski...I got it.
It would help guide us in...
I said forget it, Chuck!
He's just trying to help!
I can do this! I've always wanted to do this.
Sarah looks at Chuck...
I trust you Casey.
Casey continues to handle the flight controls
carefully. He begins pulling the stick back to ease the descent.
OK...we're almost there...leveling her off.
Sarah...fire the braking thrusters...maximum power...slow us down.
The sound of rocket engines goes off and the Moonraker starts
Hold on to it buddy! You can do it!
A few more seconds go by...
Sarah...kill the thrusters! Release the parachutes!
Thrusters dead. Chutes away! Lowering landing
moonraker, 29 palms marine air field, thursday 6:50 am
We see parachutes pop open behind the Moonraker to further
slow its descent. The nose is up and the plane glides down onto the
runway with a bump.
moonraker, thursday 6:51 am
Breathe buddy! Breathe through your nose!
Fire the braking thrusters!
Breaking thrusters on! Flaps up...
OK...I'm slamming on the brakes.
Casey presses on the brake pedal and the Moonraker eventually
slows down to taxiing speed...
Casey you did it!
I did it! I didn't hurl!
Sarah and Casey just smile.
MOONRAKER, 29 PALMS MARINE AIR FIELD, THURSDAY 7:25 am
The flight crews have come across and sprayed the Moonraker
with some gas meant to cool it down a little. They give the thumbs up
signal to the cockpit.
The cockpit door opens and an emergency inflatable ramp falls
down and inflates into an escape slide.
Morgan is seen to have been thrown from the Moonraker and
bounces on the slide to a group of waiting paramedics.
Next come Chuck and Sarah, who slide down spinning and
Finally, Casey jumps on the slide, prompting 2 marines to
pull Chuck and Sarah off before he can land on them.
Everyone breaks out into applause.
castle, thursday 10 am
Chuck, Casey, Sarah and Morgan are seated at the meeting
table, being debriefed by General
Beckman on the mission.
After the Trident 3 struck Victory Aerospace, we searched the
rubble and found the body of Elana Volkoff amongst the dead. We managed
to salvage some files from the debris and determined that Victory Aerospace was
funded and staffed by members of Volkoff Industries. Congratulations on
preventing the resurgence of a new Volkoff organization!
The team smiles proudly.
We also managed to salvage all their Intersect equipment and
data too. It'll be a long time before anyone else on the black market
develops an Intersect.
Good job team! I've got to catch a flight now.
Beckman begins packing her briefcase while the team gets up
and starts to leave.
Sarah...John...I need to talk to you both individually before
You first, Bartowski.
Casey leaves the room to wait outside and Sarah gets up and
walks up next to Beckman.
I submitted your application to the heads of our nations'
intelligence community. They were quite impressed.
Thank you, ma'am.
I just wanted to let you know in advance that this will be a
lengthy application process, and you will have to eventually make a
presentation to them regarding your experiences on the current Intersect
project, and where you think you can take it in the future.
Sarah just smiles.
I'll get started right away.
One more thing. The successful applicant won't be
judged on purely experience alone. You need some academic skills to make
your application more appealing to them. Going to graduate school and
getting admitted into a degree program in Foreign Affairs or management would
be of great value to your career.
I'll look at it right away.
On a personal note, I know it's tough to succeed as a woman
in a primarily male-dominated profession...but I think once the board reviews
what you've done with Chuck...your husband...I think you'll make your way to
the top of the list of potential candidates.
Sarah and Beckman smile at each other and Sarah goes up to
Casey, who is waiting in another room in Castle.
Your turn, John.
Casey enters quietly and leans against the table near Beckman.
I saw your request for consideration for the NASA astronaut
It's not the first time I've applied.
I know John. I just am sad to tell you I cannot allow
it. I was going to...but I was forewarned that NASA only accepts
applications from outstanding citizens for its astronaut program.
I think my service record speaks for itself.
Yes...it is rather outstanding...and you did an excellent job
landing the Moonraker, but your service record has 2 very large mistakes in
Casey looks sad.
John...I understand you did it for your ex-fiance...but NASA
has very stringent requirements. So although I couldn't get your
application in, I talked to NASA's Board of Directors and they sent you this.
Beckman holds out a box and opens it. Inside are an
official NASA astronaut's patch and a letter congratulating Casey on being the
first astronaut to fly the Moonraker, signed and sealed by the President of the
I'm sorry John...but this was the best I could do.
Casey accepts it and shakes Beckman's hand.
I know. Thank you.
Casey salutes Beckman, who smiles and returns the salute.
ext. courtyard, thursday 5 pm
Awesome and Ellie (holding Clara) are sitting at the fountain
when Chuck, Casey, Sarah and Morgan arrive. Chuck and Sarah are holding
hands, and Morgan is carrying a large shopping bag with a few poster-sized
Hi! What's up?
We were just taking some time to enjoy this fountain a few
more times before we have to give it up.
You got a new place already?
No...not yet...but we wanted to take advantage of this place
and all it has to offer as much as possible until we move out.
Everybody wanna come in for a bit?
Chuck opens the door to his flat.
bartowski, thursday, 5:10 pm
Awesome is holding Clara and talking with Chuck and Casey
while Ellie and Sarah converse. Morgan has begun displaying the poster
sized photos in front of the TV which catch everyone's attention.
The first is of Chuck, Sarah, Casey and Morgan posing
together in front of a full view of the Moonraker after landing in 29 Palms.
The second is of Chuck and Sarah kissing in zero
gravity...with Sarah lying on top of Chuck and the 2 floating in the cockpit of
The third is of Chuck, Sarah, Casey and Morgan posing in
front of the Moonraker cockpit window with the Earth and space in the
Where did you take those photos? Disneyland?
No...actually, they were from a mission today.
Whoa! You all went into outer space? That's
And I didn't vomit for the entire trip!
Ellie looks around the living room, which is littered with
stuff from Chuck and Sarah's relationship...wedding photos, honeymoon photos,
Those are great pictures, really Chuck, they are....but where
are you going to hang them? There's no more space in your apartment!
We'll think of something.
Chuck and Sarah look at the photos while smiling and holding
