If you are like us at the moment, then you are probably still reeling from the fact that after a number of seasons and passionate fan campaigns, the ride is over for “Chuck” on NBC. By and large, the reaction was positive to the grand finale — which featured Chuck on the same beach with Sarah that they first connected on many years ago, but this time with him saying that he would always be there for her.
So was this scene always the planned ending for the show? It seems like it. Speaking per TVLine, executive producer Chris Fedak said that they produced the entire season with this conclusion in mind:
“When we were working on this season of the show, we knew that the beach scene, which echoes the beach scene from the pilot, would be there. And we knew that in this case it would be Chuck trying to help Sarah. We were always heading in that direction.”
There were of course a number of other references to the pilot in the final hour — from the presence of Weinerlicious and the Mexican restaurant to even some similar cues in the score.
Being that the ratings were always such a key part of this show’s story online, stay tuned — we should have the numbers for the finale close to noon.
