Don't read if you haven't seen the episode yet and you want to remain spoiler free. You've been warned a bunch.


Oh so close to being a good episode. If they really had killed Casey it would have been a Jossesque episode. Instead he'll be fine and everything will have a happy ending. Bleh!

I was really hoping that they'd have Sarah cross the line during this operation of hers as a way to put distance between her and Chuck. Killing Casey would have been an amazing way of doing it. Have communication cut off between them. Maybe a few bits of intel gathered by the CIA indicating that she may have really gone rogue. Get it to the point where Chuck can't trust her anymore and have a real all out Sarah vs Chuck showdown. He couldn't be sure if she's telling the truth when she claims she never meant to kill Casey etc. I'm sure they'll try for the same thing just with Casey in a coma during all of it. Not the same IMO.


Side note I liked the baby name story line. Jeff was the funniest IMO.

Blasphemy! Every TV show should strive to be more Jossian! How dare you want otherwise?

Now I am learning about scary.


Jossian episode or not, I don't want Adam Baldwin to leave the show--so no Casey murder! Find someone else to kill off!

Why do you hate Firefly season 2? We'll never get another season if Adam Baldwin has a job. All the big damn heroes must be killed off their current shows!! Come on tragic flat line with Alex standing over Casey crying! It could happen.

No, it's not the same and as you say they'll probably try something like this for an episode (or maybe two) until Casey wakes up. Chuck and Sarah's problems will go on much longer of course.
For your idea to really work Casey would have to really die and I think that would only happen if Adam decided to leave the show on his own accord, Which I can't see happening at the minute.

Just had a very quick thought that I haven't worked through yet but if they get to the end of this season and Sarah is still fake rogue or they believe at that point that it's genuine would Chuck go rogue (faked or real) to be with her?
It might be a neat cliffhanger to end on.

There is no Firefly season 2, at least not at the moment. Putting aside the fact of the actors working, Joss is too busy with The Avengers to do FF. By the time he's done things may be in a different state career wise for everyone. Wanting characters killed to get something that isn't going to happen yet (if ever) is like screaming "I want a cookie" in the middle of the desert and kicking sand in the air until you get you way.

Oh so now you wouldn't scream in the dessert and kick dirt in the air to get a second season of Firefly? Sometimes I question the resolve of some of the browncoats.


Like you said the previous post, even the plot of Chuck would be well served to have Casey die. Besides Chuck is the big gun now on the team. Casey doesn't really have a role anymore. That's why they do a lot of missions without him and leave him back in the "Buy More" side plot. His days are numbered!

Point 1: If we are talking about desserts then I am definitely there. Mint choc chip ice cream please.

Point 2: I can see what you're getting at, his role has changed from Sarah's partner to Morgan's partner. Personally I don't mind this as Morgan is my fave character on the show and the two of them work well together.
But if Sarah is away for a few episodes at least then surely Chuck and Casey (when he's recovered) will team up for missions?

Thanks, LWaves! You answered for me.

I'll take a cookie, if anyone gets one.
