It was actually a great episode. After last week's (which I didn't even finish watching) and after Fringe's finale, I wasn't expecting much. But this was a really strong episode. For everyone. Even Devon. So there's this weapon Vivian has. And Chuck's mom is trying to steal it but gets caught and captured. Chuck, Sarah and Casey have to break her out.
They do over her objections. She doesn't want to do this because she wants to get the weapon. While Chuck and Sarah are with her, Vivian and Vivian's henchmen arrive. They get trapped in the cell but not before Vivian learns that Sarah is Chuck's mother.
They have to get the weapon. As Chuck and Sarah get ready for their wedding.
The weapon can kill anyone, it's some major weapon.
So Morgan looks like one of the bidders invited to bid on the weapon. Therefore they tap him to go in as a bad guy.
Sarah and Chuck are part of the mission and so is Casey and so Chuck's mother.
As people get ready to bill, Vivian and the henchman arrive. And explain that they've decided to keep the weapon . . . and kill all the bidders.
Okay, you get someone's DNA (how? I don't know) and you turn the gun on and it kills them. So they do this in the room and it has no effect on Morgan because he's not the real bidder. So they're telling MOrgan in his ear piece to act like the others.
The hench says one person isn't dead. Chuck tells Morgan (via ear piece) to stay still. And Morgan gets lucky. A blond dead man leaps up and he's MI6 (British secret agent). He gets shot in the middle of a long winded speech.
Viv leaves with hench but Morgan's an idiot and does get out of there. Now there are four goons in the room with acid to destroy all the bodies. Morgan tries to escape but can't. Casey shoots them one at a time.
When the weapon's turned on this green stuff (DNA) kind of glows and then it's like you have a really bad headache and sometimes nose bleeds.
Outside Viv and the hench bump into Chuck and Sarah. And Chuck tells Viv this isn't who she is and her father's name comes up. Chuck tells her Lexy wasn't a bad guy, he was Agent X. And the experiments changed him. Then hench responds that Chuck's father was the one who made Lexy Agent X and that drove Lexy crazy.
Viv is ready to kill Chick's entire family.
At the . . .
Is that the wedding party?
The party the day before?
I don't know. But it's got a huge turnout. Oh, when they're having to do the mission I wrote about above? General Beckman made a point to say to Chuck, "Thanks for my invitation." She didn't get one. :D
So the party's going great and Chuck gets a call. I'm thinking it's got to be his father. (I know he's dead but I am not giving up hope.) It's Viv. She tells him she's decided to kill someone he loves so he can know how she feels.
Sarah comes over. Chuck tells her he thinks Vivian's about to kill his mother. He's rushing towards her when Sarah's head starts killing her. And she's got a nose bleed. She's the one Vivian's trying to kill.
