'Hopefully they won't find themselves dodging bullets for the rest of their lives,' Chris Fedak says of what he sees as the rest of the couple's life being.
After some close calls and a heartbreaking goodbye, Chuck and Sarah share one last tender moment in "Chuck" series finale. In the second part of the two-hour outing, [SPOILER ALERT!] Chuck recounts their story as Sarah still doesn't get her memory back. Following Morgan's "crazy idea", Chuck gives his wife "one magical kiss" before the show is over.
While the ending leaves it to fans to imagine whether Chuck and Sarah get back together, co-creator Chris Fedak has been willing to share his own version of the couple's future. "I see Chuck and Sarah together, being a husband and wife, starting up that computer security firm. Hopefully they won't find themselves dodging bullets for the rest of their lives," he said in an interview.
"Of course, as a writer, now I start thinking, 'You know what? They could get into a little bit of trouble.' That gets the story side of my brain going," Fedak coyly added before stressing, "But for now, they're happy and they're together and thinking about their future."
Asked if Chuck is still retiring after he gets the Intersect back, Fedak answered, "Yes, he does have the Intersect back, but he's still retiring. But I guess you never know." However, to the writer, Chuck getting his Intersect back is not the most important thing.
He explained, "The idea of using the Intersect to give Sarah her memories back was a beautifully-structured thing: it makes sense, Ellie gets to help Sarah. But in that moment, Chuck has to make a tough decision, and he knows that saving the day is the thing he had to do. That was fundamental to the story. But from an overarching perspective, looking at the last episode, Chuck putting the Intersect back into his head was not the most important thing to me."
Aside of Chuck-Sarah relationship, "Chuck" gave happy endings for many of its characters. Jeffster gets a German record deal, Morgan and Alex are going to move in together, Subway takes over the Buy More, Casey prepares to hunt down Verbanski, while Ellie and Devon are moving to Chicago where prestigious positions at a hospital are awaiting for them.
Asked if it ever occurred in his mind to give a sad ending for any of the characters, Fedak admitted, "There was definitely darker endings for every aspect of the show. We struggled with where we wanted to land these characters in the end."
Claiming that he loved the final version of the endings, he stated, "I think in the end, the Gertrude Verbanski story was such a great story for the season, and Carrie-Anne Moss and Adam [Baldwin] gave such life and energy to that, that that became his future."
