** Even worse, Fulcrum's variation proved to lead to brain death and insanity at upload time.


** Actually, if Beckman couldn't contact Casey and order an abort directly, it's plausible that she would have ordered Sarah to tell Chuck what happened. Keep in mind that if Sarah had gone full bodyguard mode, ''Chuck would have found out about the assassination order''. Whereas Casey overhearing the conversation and standing down keeps Chuck LockedOutOfTheLoop.

*** If Beckman couldn't contact Casey, she would have to presume he's already gone to carry out his order. Which means every second counts. In such a case, the counter-order to Sarah would have to be of the "floor it, run every red light and kick down the door" kind. Sure, as a downside Chuck might become a little less cooperative if he finds out about the order, but at least their only existing Intersect hasn't ceased existing.


* The scene near the end of Chuck versus the First Date. Casey is ready to carry out the kill order he was given at the beginning of the episode, stalking Chuck in his apartment. Interspersed with these shots is a scene of the New Intersect being readied [[spoiler: and then destroyed in a fiery explosion, along with Graham and a bunch of agents]]. Then, only a short moment later, the doorbell rings. It's Sarah, who's there to tell Chuck what just happened, unwittingly giving Casey a reason to withdraw. The logic kicks in when you consider two questions. First, how did Sarah learn about the Intersect's fate in what seems to be less than a minute? And second, WHO told her? The first question can only be answered by deducing that the Intersect thing happened some time earlier, and what we just saw was simply some cutting room magic. But that still doesn't answer the second question. "Beckman", would seem like the natural answer. But the moment she heard the news, shouldn't she have called Casey instead of Sarah, in order to withdraw the kill order before it's too late? Fine, maybe Casey didn't have his phone with him, because a cell ringing when you're about to carry out a covert hit could really mess things up. But would Beckman in such a case just casually tell Sarah, "hey, get over to Chuck's and tell him what happened", rather than "go stop Casey before it's too late"? Because if Sarah - who has at this point been firmly established as being violently protective of Chuck - would have been aware of the kill order, she probably wouldn't have just rung the doorbell and waited for Chuck to answer. It's far more likely that she would have kicked down the door, barged in with a gun in hand, made sure Chuck is safe, only then explained - and hated Casey's guts for the rest of her life. So Sarah must have got the news from someone who didn't know of the order. Who was this person, and how did he or she learn what happened before Beckman did?

* In "Chuck Versus the Fake Name", Sarah appears to pull a real dick move, when she on Shaw's insistence reveals to him what is supposedly her real first name (Sam). (Though we have a WordOfGod insinuating that she may have been lying.) This feels doubly irksome when you consider that in an earlier episode, "Chuck versus the Wookiee", Chuck asks her the same thing, and she simply clams up. When that fails, Chuck tries to settle for finding out her middle name (revealed to be Lisa), but she seemingly only utters it to herself when Chuck's gone out of earshot. But there are more pieces to this puzzle than just these two. TheBigBoard [[spoiler: behind Chuck's TRON poster]] shown in "Chuck Versus the Lethal Weapon" indicates that he did indeed hear her say it. In "Chuck versus the Cougars", we learn that her current name of "Sarah Walker" is far more than an easily disposable alias - [[spoiler: she received it upon entering CIA training and]] it has been her professional name for nearly a decade. And finally, "Chuck versus the Family Volkoff" reveals that "Sarah Lisa Walker" is also her legal name. In general, it is really difficult to watch the show and not have the impression that "Sarah" is very much what she considers to be her real name, no matter what her birth certificate may say. Now, when you assemble the picture, the whole thing actually comes extremely heartwarming. First, Sarah doesn't have to tell Chuck her real name, as by the time Chuck asks, ''he already knows it''. He may not be aware that he does, but he does anyway. In fact, Sarah speaking out her middle name insinuates that she's trusting Chuck with her full real name, albeit again without Chuck's awareness of the fact. Lastly, the name she gives Shaw - whether it is her real original name or fake - is (or has become) completely ''meaningless'' to her.

** It's even possible that Sarah is creating a "cover personality" for her tryst with Shaw, saving her real one for those she considers truly special. We know of two. The first was Bryce Larkin, and the second is, naturally, Chuck.


* In the series final, we get tons of hints that Sarah still has a lot of things from the past five years bouncing inside her head, and she seems to recover pieces of them upon seeing something related. She sees [[spoiler:the doorframe carving]] and remembers she made it. She visits a Wienerlicious and has a sensation that she's worked there once. She sees a laptop that's exactly like the one in the pilot, [[spoiler: and recalls the Irene Demova virus]]. Yet they seem to appear only as sporadic images to her. Now, does that sound familiar? To spell it out, she's seeing triggers - and ''flashing''. Her memories aren't gone, ''they're stored in the Intersect that is still inside her head''. The reason she fails to communicate this to the rest of the team is because Sarah from five years ago has no knowledge of Human Intersects and how they operate. She might even be thinking she's losing her mind - just like Chuck in the Pilot - and would rather stay quiet about it.

She sees a laptop that's exactly like the one in the pilot, [[spoiler: and recalls the Irene Demova virus]]. Yet they seem to appear only as sporadic images to her. Now, does that sound familiar? To spell it out, she's seeing triggers - and ''flashing''. Her memories aren't gone, ''they're stored in the Intersect that is still inside her head''.

To spell it out, she's seeing triggers - and ''flashing''. Her memories aren't gone, ''they're stored in the Intersect that is still inside her head''. The reason she fails to communicate this to the rest of the team is because Sarah from five years ago has no knowledge of Human Intersects and how they operate. She might even be thinking she's losing her mind - just like Chuck in the pilot - and would rather stay quiet about it.

** Now consider what kind of deeply personal memories can potentially be triggered by Chuck's kiss...


* The scene near the end of Chuck versus the First Date. Casey is ready to carry out the kill order he was given at the beginning of the episode, stalking Chuck in his apartment. Interspersed with these shots is the scene of the New Intersect being readied [[spoiler: and then destroyed in a fiery explosion, along with Graham and a bunch of agents]]. Then, only a short moment later, the doorbell rings. It's Sarah, who's there to tell Chuck what just happened, unwittingly giving Casey a reason to withdraw. The logic kicks in when you consider two questions. First, how did Sarah learn about the Intersect's fate in what seems to be less than a minute? And second, WHO told her? The first question can only be answered by deducing that the Intersect thing happened some time earlier, and what we just saw was simply some cutting room magic. But that still doesn't answer the second question. "Beckman", would seem like the natural answer. But the moment she heard the news, shouldn't she have called Casey instead of Sarah, in order to withdraw the kill order before it's too late? Fine, maybe Casey didn't have his phone with him, because a cell ringing when you're about to carry out a covert hit could really mess things up. But would Beckman in such a case just casually tell Sarah, "hey, get over to Chuck's and tell him what happened", rather than "go stop Casey before it's too late"? Because if Sarah - who has at this point been firmly established as being violently protective of Chuck - would have been aware of the kill order, she probably wouldn't have just rung the doorbell and waited for Chuck to answer. It's far more likely that she would have kicked down the door, barged in with a gun in hand, made sure Chuck is safe, only then explained - and hated Casey's guts for the rest of her life. So Sarah must have got the news from someone who didn't know of the order. Who was this person, and how did he or she learn what happened before Beckman did?
