    Richy,

    One theory (the one to which I personally subscribe) concerning Anna is that she didn't drop Morgan for the other Hibachi chef guy. She got recruited by the CIA or NSA (Casey called up somebody while she was kung-fu'ing). She dumped Morgan because she didn't want him to find out about her blossoming new life as a CIA agent, for his own protection. Except that now he's hip to Chuck's jive, and (last week spoilers)
    an operative himself
    so she's dropped by to tell him so they can pick up where they left off.

    I don't know that I would call him
    an operative.

    I would say that
    Lackey or perhaps Specialist would be a more fitting term. Where specialist is used to indicate situations so far out of the ordinary that only someone as completely loony as Morgan would ever be able to function, knowingly or by accident.
    Someone mentioned above that he'd probably fit best as an "analyst" like what they offered Chuck when he got the intersect out of his head.

    I still say his official position is designated comic relief while Chuck and Sarah are busy having sex in Europe.

    Lose: to suffer defeat, to misplace (Ex: "I hope I don't lose the match." "Did you lose your phone again?")
    Loose: about to slip, to release (Ex: "That knot is loose." "Loose arrows.")

    I suspect this is a fan with too much time on their hands. But who knows.

    Twitter is evil. This is more evidence.

    Have I mentioned taking a random 2 week break for no damn reason is stupid and just another sign NBC is run by morons?

    On an almost related note spoilers for Bones (and how it relates to Chuck in this instance) below:
    The ending of the 100th episode of Bones is how I feared Chuck was going to play out (and would really piss me off if I had been watching the show for 5 damn seasons instead of only a month or so...but anyway). But thankfully Chuck's writers don't seem to be the normal 'lets drag this out until we're canceled' type. It's a stark contrast watching these 2 ending scenes close together. Both invoke emotion, just on opposites ends of the scale. Chuck, thankfully, is on the happy side...

    Man, that Bones episode was such a massive wtfbbq.


    Re. random breaks in tv schedules, that's hardly an NBC-unique phenomenon. Hell, Bones just came back from a 2-week hiatus, and the long hiatuses taken by V and Flash Forward may have even killed them. By and large, television networks just don't know how to fill up 52 weeks with 23-episode seasons. They try to be competitive in September (for season start), November sweeps, December for Christmas advertising, February sweeps, and May sweeps again. So either they get enough new programming to fill up all the slots (reality TV anybody?), they entirely abandon some (like how ABC doesn't even air Lost in the fall any more), or they stagger episodes through the entire season... or some mixture thereof with their various shows.

    I mean, you go to most network websites and check their list of primetime shows and you only get about 20 hours worth of programming total. That's 230 hours of primetime programming annually, compared to 3x5x30=450 hours of primetime programming required annually... and that's dropping Saturday and Sunday, 12 weeks for summer, 4 weeks for Christmas, 4 weeks for the Olympics - for 1 network - which don't even happen every year, and then another 2 weeks for other random vacations.
