While we are two weeks away from that special day called Valentine’s Day, it’s become apparent that we should take the time to reflect on some of Chuck’s best moments coming from the day in which we cherish a special someone.
While Valentine’s day is a day of love, the world of Chuck brought some intense and fun moments the series ever had. There are two episode that feature Valentine’s day Suburbs and The Masquerade aired during the holiday.
Here are some of the key moments during Valentine’s Day.
The issue at hand was Big Mike’s wife had served Mike his divorce papers on of all days Valentine’s Day. Thus, the big fella was on the open market. Emmett and the Buymore stooges worked together to find Mike a replacement. The need to have someone suck the work right out of Big Mike would be the goal.
Morgan and the gang would look to the internet for some nasty filthy love. The love that would connect with Morgan much deeper than he thought. They would instruct Mike to fabricate a bit in his profile so he could get dates. They painted Mike as a shipping magnate and what was worse a 185 lbs one at that, but Big Mike did look fine in his Sunday finery. Big Mike would go out with this hot looking babe, and boy did he deliver. Mike did things with the woman that could be deemed as illegal in some parts.
Breakfast in Suburbia
What would Chuck and Sarah be without some romantic moments such as this one. A moment that brought out the girl within the girl for Sarah Walker. A glowing moment for the future Mrs. Bartowski. A personal favorite of mine as well. When a woman can play house whether it’s fake or not can be exuberating for the soul. It means more for a woman to fix breakfast for the person she loves. Especially when Chuck and Sarah were truly alone with no bugs or cameras in the home. Chuck assumes it’s apart of the cover, but the body language and demeanor all are one in the same. Sarah enjoyed playing the role of a housewife. The scene felt like Sarah was being a normal woman. Sometimes we forget how special she can be when given the chance. It’s a scene like this one that makes me reset my rewatches when we hit episode 5/12 on the docket.
A Valentine’s Special
Another moment that has a great song to go with it comes in S4. Chuck vs The Masquerade offers two Valentine’s Day specials. One with Chuck and Sarah and the other being a new edition to the series. A beautiful woman in her own right. Lauren Cohan makes her series debut as Vivian Volkoff.
It’s hard to imagine anyone else having the rights to Chuck’s heart, but if there was one woman that could take Sarah’s place it would be Vivian. The style and pure beauty makes her the perfect rival to Sarah Walker. The genuine chemistry between Zachary Levi and Lauren was tremendous, but most Chuck fans would rather see Chuck and Sarah together. I have no issue with it either, but the proverbial what if comes into play in my line of thinking.
The seductive way of Vivian could make one’s heart melt despite being the daughter of the most dangerous man on the planet. The other special moment from the episode comes with a very funny conclusion. The opening scene was the blend of action/comedy and romance that made Chuck so special. The ability to blend these genres was perfectly done. I will even play the song for you that made the scene that much better. Morgan and Alex trying to reach the highest of sexual tension would make Sarah ask what was happening. Casey to ask what do mean have. Classic Chuck in my view.
Chuck and Sarah’s relationship often left you scratching our heads. There are several moments in Suburbs that illustrate the communication breakdowns the two had.
The first happened here, Sarah clearly came into the Buymore hoping Chuck planned something for them. Sarah was eager to hear what the plans were, but visibly disappointed Chuck didn’t set up anything. Sarah even reminds Chuck they were cover dating for a year now. The idea Sarah would bring up dating means the relationship meant more to Sarah then just a cover, but Chuck being a male missed the clues. The idea of giving their cover dating lives a night off didn’t go over well with Sarah either. Sarah gives the classic fake smile and everything is fine line she usually gave, but it was killing her inside. This was an opportunity they both missed on building for the future.
What’s worse would be what happens in the house. Sarah’s watching Chuck playing video games, but it’s her mistake she called the date a cover. Thus, Chuck was acting as if it was a cover, but does Sarah look like she was pleased with Chuck not all over her. It’s Valentine’s Day and yet Chuck was all over his video game and not the woman of his dreams.It makes the scene great because Sarah’s communication was all body and not vocal. Yet, she couldn’t control herself much any longer as the even went on. Thus, when a mission became about both became eager in ending their fake date.
While Chuck and Sarah would have a special moment in the house, the ending of this episode was a glimpse of what each character believed would never happen for them. The idea of being married and living in the house was a dream at least for the moment, but truth is no matter what obstacle in their way protecting each other was bigger than some dream. While what they feel may be not real for now, we know it would be real soon enough, but the perils of love can leave a burden no matter who you are. Sarah was right when she said they couldn’t go back to the house, but instead of communicating that with him. She left Chuck thinking they were never going to get past the whole asset/handler aspect of their relationship. A burden even Sarah felt, but Chuck never sees. So, Valentine’s Day may bring fond moments and introduce new characters to the story. Valentine’s Day had its mix bag of emotions only Chuck could deliver.
