Spoilers if you aren't caught up on Dexter through Season 7! The last Dexter fans saw of Yvonne Strahovski's Hannah McKay, she was leaving a potted black orchard on Dexter's porch and taking off to parts unknown, having managed to escape police custody before being sent to jail for the attempted murder of Dexter's sister Deb. We were left to wonder if that was the end of Dexter and Hannah's relationship.
Chuck had its fair share of darker moments, but the NBC series was practically a comedy by comparison to Showtime's serial killer drama Dexter, so it should be interesting to see what kind of role the pay-cable series has for Yvonne Strahovski, whom Chuck fans will remember fondly as the capable Sarah Walker.
The real heart of Chuck has always been the relationships between Chuck and his friends and family. While the main arc this season is the hunt for Frost and Volkoff, just as important is Chuckís quest for the perfect way to propose to Sarah. Itís part goofball, part touching, and itís got a resolution thatís so beautifully understated that I challenge anyone to watch it and not get a little misty eyed.
