Yvonne Strahovski On The Chuck Finale

“There will be a satisfying ending, but it’s almost slightly, slightly tragic, the lead-up to what happens.”

With Chuck ’s two-hour series finale due to air on Friday 27 January (oh, that seems far too near), TVLine has been talking to Yvonne Strahovski, aka Sarah Walker, about what we can expect. And while she doesn’t go into specifics, what she does say is certainly tantalising.

“I had very specific things that I thought it was going to be, and it turned out to be not what I thought,” she says.

NBC’s official synopsis reveals: “After a harrowing mission, Sarah returns to Chuck with a huge secret. Chuck enlists his family, friends and some unexpected allies as he races to stop villain Nicholas Quinn (guest star Angus Macfadyen, Braveheart ) from destroying everything Chuck has built over the past five years.”

Which may sound action-packed but Strahovski emphasises, “We’re going to see a lot of the focus on the Chuck and Sarah love story, which is the heart of the show,” adding that the finale, “surprised me to the point where I kind of felt like an audience member myself, sitting on the edge of my seat wondering, ‘Oh my gosh, how is this going to get resolved?’

“There will be a satisfying ending,” Strahovski stresses “but it’s almost slightly, slightly tragic, the lead-up to what happens.”
