Luckily, Beckman is able to give them a coded message to get the heck out of there before they're caught, which they do. Chuck gets to mope around about how he's worried he's the next in line to inherit a Bartowski curse. That is, leaving one's family in order to protect them from your crazy spy life. And even though at this point he and Sarah really should go into hiding at least for a little bit, their plans are about to be thwarted once more. When do plans ever really go well, anyway?
|Awesome shirtless? Yes, please!|
Robin and company pretend for Ellie and Awesome that they're really just waiting for Chuck to get there, but Ellie is no dummy. She can tell that they're going to be used as some kind of leverage and manages to knock out a dude so she and Devon can escape. Of course, Chuck has already agreed to bring The Omen device to save them, behind the backs of Sarah, Beckman and Casey, even though they would've totally agreed to do that too.
When Chuck shows up, he ends up getting tied up until he'll confess where he's hidden the device. Meanwhile, the escaped Ellie and Devon are devising a plan to save him, since his plan to save them sort of backfired a little bit. But the Woodcombs are not the Bartowskis, and Devon gets himself caught. Chuck gives up the location of The Omen in order to spare Devon some torture, and Robin unleashes it on the world.
With that done, she decides that she doesn't need Captain Awesome anymore. Come on, Robin, couldn't you use him for his handsomeness and amazing body alone? Have some imagination! Nonetheless, before she can do anything to his pretty face, Sarah and the others come to the rescue, even though Sarah is pissed at Chuck for leaving her. They manage to capture Robin, but don't find out much about why she was tasked with unleashing The Omen, or who told her to do it. All they know is that it's already started to cause havoc all over the world, apparently unlocking a door to some bad guy's cell in the process. Dun dun dun!
While all of this was going on, Morgan and Alex were reconnecting a little bit. Morgan was sent back to his and Casey's place to wipe out his computers, only Alex was there. Yada yada, some sort of useless bit about an apparent box of personal affects that he and Chuck both made that has never before been mentioned, and was clearly only used to make some jokes about pants. Anyway, these two will likely reconcile soon.
