When two people from very different worlds come together, we often see clashing or at best friction. When Felix and Oscar from the odd couple first met they were also very different, but something drew them together, and not only stay together, but learn to love each other as well.
A force can bring two people together, but what happens when the cause is Bryce Larkin. We know the tale on how Chuck and Sarah meet, but was it a program that was stolen that did it or was destiny behind it all. Love is strong when two forces come together and unite. Especially for two people that never met before.
Whether they are characters from a story, or real life people, the fact remains when love is pure it counters everything. It may take time, but the fact was Sarah and Chuck were more than just lovers, friends and spouses, they were more than spies and partners. The fact was no matter what happened to them. They found a way to each other. The result than is could it possible mean they were soulmates?
If we take the story as whole, and break it down. You will be able to find that one woman, who was lost in her world. After dealing with Ryker and Graham about the package, Sarah needed a change, upon hearing where her next assignment would be in Burbank. She was somewhat relieved that it would be far from Washington. Especially when learning that her partner Bryce was the cause of it, but what she didn’t know was the assignment would be someone who also knew Bryce. It is a very small world after all. However, meeting Chuck at the Buymore was not where this article will start, It will start , when Graham and Sarah were speaking on the phone.
Sarah was instructed to be on a plane in an hour. Graham told her Casey was on his way, and Sarah’s reaction was to become the protector of Chuck. She was not his handler at this time. Thus, She could of boarded a plane no questions asked, but the lure of knowing who this man was enticed her to stay. Soulmates usually do that once the connection has been made.
When Chuck laid his eyes on her, he became instantly hooked as well. It was a crazy day for him. First, he downloaded the intersect into his brain and than he started to flash on things he had no idea about. Follow by this beautiful bombshell stood in front of him. A very crazy day indeed. Sarah in agent mode and Chuck in nerd herd form, what would soon transpire would be the wake of an epic tale that ended in bitter disappointment, but despite this, the power of love kept Sarah coming back. She could of left for good, but chose to return to the very beach where she told him “Trust Me.” The power of love is a feeling that never dies.
The lifestyles they were both living were the result of the countless interactions, handler/asset when it came to missions, but when it came to every day life Sarah and Chuck found themselves wanting the other more when one ventured off. This included missions, Sarah was bothered by Sasha kissing Chuck, and Chuck was none to pleased with Cole Barker half naked with his girl. Sarah didn’t take to kindly that Carina had called Chuck over in the middle of the night, and Chuck didn’t like Sarah going on a boat by herself with Lonn. Two people, Two very different lifestyles, but having real relationship problems despite the claim of a cover.
Furthermore, Sarah never liked Chuck doing things on his own. She wanted to be included in everything he did. When he went on his own to Switzerland, Sarah not being there to help Chuck was one thing, but the thought of him not coming back was on her mind, Chuck also dealt with a similar situation When Sarah decided to go undercover into Volkoff Industries to free his mother. The power of love makes people do things they normally wouldn’t do, but for the sake of keeping that person in your life makes the decision that more easier or at times hard like Chuck breaking up with Sarah the second time.
Casey, Beckman, Cole, Bryce, and Ellie all knew early on Sarah was into Chuck, but Carina was the first one to notice it. The two people who knew, but were afraid to act on their desire still found ways to be together in the end. In what was inevitable, Charah always found themselves growing deeper and deeper in love with each other. A modern Romeo and Juliet. The exception of course is a person is not preventing them, but a agency.job that will.
Jealousy is a direct emotion that comes from love. Its the very jealousy that makes working together that much more harder. Especially when assignments are dealing with seduction and flirtation. Sarah can say that it was strictly a cover, but sometimes actions speak louder than words, and foiling your asset’s date is a directly from her feelings inside of her. The notion that the man your falling for was with someone else was not going to end pretty for either of them. This is not agent walker, but Sarah Walker personally struggling with this mission. The power of love will do that, but finding your soulmate amplifies it.
The power of love also drives you to do things for someone because its important to both of you. Whether its Sarah looking up Stephen Bartowski, or helping Chuck get his degree for him,
Chuck did the same thing for Sarah, He went with her to her class reunion. A memory that was really bothering Sarah, but in typical Chuck fashion comforts her.
Chuck being there for Sarah is what soulmates do. They are present at the time of need, and never make the person feel small. Again, when Sarah’s father takes off with the briefcase and laptop Sarah again gets words of advise from Chuck.
Its moments like these that draw people closer, especially when the right words are spoken. Not Judgmental, not critical, because he can relate.Like Sarah, Chuck had to cope without parents. How to cope with themselves. The lines below are from Chuck vs The Cougars,
Sarah: Okay, fine, I’ll answer one question about my past. You’ve earned that much.
Chuck: …No thanks…I don’t need to know more, not about who you were. ‘Cause as much as you don’t think so, I know who you are: a girl I’d like to share a cheeseburger with…Should I get a knife? I’ll get a knife.
Sarah: That won’t be necessary.[Sarah rolls up one of pants legs, pulls out a knife and gives it to Chuck]
Chuck: That’s awesome! And a little disturbing.
Soulmates also have a tendency to turn special moments into awkward situations. For example, Sarah asking Chuck about Valentine’s Day. It was something she was asking personally but he missed it. She wanted to spend time with him romantically and yet he was on the corner of the couch playing video games or a fake proposal that wasn’t. ‘
The idea to make a moment special or create a special moment if you will often leads to disaster. As Casey said, “The moment is not important, as long as you have the girl.”
It is the truth. Chuck had the girl from day one, and for Sarah, she had him the moment she approached the nerd herd desk. The power of love connected two soulmates, and Bryce was the matchmaker. The path of course is up to the people themselves, which makes the journey worth the ride, and the conclusion so bitter.
