He tells Sarah who doesn't believe him. He heads to Castle where Casey tries to stop him. He tells Casey about the Intersect and ends up having to shoot him with a tranq gun (three times!) to be able to go. Chuck sneaks into Roark where he ends up running into his dad with four security guards! He shoots them all and soon our favorite Fulcrum agent, Vincent walks in, and says it's nice to see you both. Steve uses a computer on his wrist to close the security door on Vincent and Chuck quickly realizes his father is Orion!!
They get to a secured door, and Steve tells Chuck to flash on the password.. it's the last thing he'll ever flash on again. He manages to and they get into a room with Intersect 2.0. They sit down to remove the Intersect from Chuck's head when Roark comes in with his men. He orders them to kill Chuck, but Steve makes a deal that will save Chuck's life... he'll fix the Intersect for them. Sarah and Casey show up as the door opens for Chuck to leave and they have to drag him away from his dad.
At the end of the episode, Ellie, who has been heart broken the whole episode, comes home to a pancake dinner (the last meal promised to her by her dad) made by Awesome. He promises to never leave her, but he lets her know her father split down. Chuck tells her not to count their father out just yet. We cut over to Steve working on Intersect 2.0.
