I was actually really surprised to see an update on this one after so long, but really happy as well.
My favorite part here is how you've done such a great job setting up Graham as a real mastermind villain, I love that. Not only does he feel like a worthy adversary, with a clear cut plan, but he actually feels legitimately scary. There's a definitely sense of lurking doom constantly hanging over Chuck and Sarah because of his presence in the story.
I do wish we could have gotten a bit more Chuck and Sarah in this chapter. Jamal's story dominated the vast majority of it, and while I'm sure that was necessary to move things along, it did take away some of my enjoyment.
I also feel like I do need to be a little critical of his killing of the receptionist, just because his motivation didn't make sense. You mentioned there are cameras everywhere in the bank, and it wasn't going to take people long to figure out Jamal was going by the name Charles Carmichael, so killing her because she was a witness doesn't fit. I think if you wanted to kill her off for the plot it may have worked better if maybe she'd seen something she wasn't supposed to or maybe she was used as a means to get out of the bank and had to be disposed of afterwards.
...anyway, glad to see this story get another chapter, and hopefully it won't be quite as long before the next one. Good job!

Found the story and happy to give it some rope. The first chapter had a recognisable feel to it and interested to see where you take it. One small observation - Sarah and Chuck are off to a horrible start in their quest to remain covert. If we give them the benefit of the doubt, and assume that they were able to ensure no monitoring of the interrogation room, then first chance they get to sell the cover cover off they go through castle holding hands. Straight to the apartment under constant surveillance having intense conversations with Ellie and three rounds of sex god action for Casey's viewing pleasure. Could not have gotten off to a worse start in the quest to keep their real relationship under wraps:)
Nice to see you are still committed to the story

I read your story and it is great, a well thought out balance of angst, pain, passion and final redemption. Great work

Well, two years is a mighty long time! This continues to be a really good, very well written story. But, for me, it's been getting a bit too dark and I hope its tone may lighten a little overall in future chapters. Another personal problem for me is that with so long between instalments, I tend to need to reread everything and that gets a bit heavy - so this is a plea for faster updates, I guess :)

So far... I do not have any idea any what is going on in this fic...
Firstly, you are getting small details wrong... But ok no problem...
Then you are kind of making this story very hard to like...
Hacker Chuck doesn't know how to hack properly... Super Spy Sarah Walker doesn't know how to spy
I get it, you want to Humanize Beckman slowly, step by step... But this is very UnSubtle so far
Not to mention, your characterization of Chuck and Sarak comes off as Lazy and stupid... In the fields they Excel In

Wow. I've always called "Rescue Me" one of THE BEST Chuck fanfictions ever written. TO my eternal surprise, you're updating the story. Simply amazing.
The new chapter feels more like filler, with a hefty dose of adult themes. Sure hope you lighten the mood a bit **nervous chuckle***
Please don't stop writing, I absolutely adore this series and would love to see more of your work. Welcome back!

Excellent I wish you would update more often than you have so far.

Well it's good

Fine story. Be good to see it continue and finish.

One of the hazards of infrequent postings is that I need to go back and read the story over so I am not too lost. That works well for a short story, but with chapters that are themselves novella length at least...well it takes time to get caught up. So on with the review. I think you did a great job with Graham as a baddie, but your treatment of the MI6 agent and his family... Well it gives me the heebee jeevies. I may not sleep tonight. Beckmann playing (mostly) nice was also well done.
I really look forward to reading more.

This has been an excellent story. Very well done! Please keep the updates coming!

I think that you like many writers cast Chuck as to compliant. He is the intersect and a US citizen. He has a certain amount of leverage and a few constitutional rights. Where's the Chuck who stood up to Walker and Casey in "Pilot" and said Hey I'm the Intersect, you need me?

Wow...theres a lot here I want to cover, but first let me say how glad I was to see an update. I was just thinking about this story the other day and wondering if it was dead, when the new chapter popped up.
Youve definitely succeeded in making Graham a darker, far nastier villain than I was expecting. That was actually a pretty uncomfortable scene to read, but I have to give you credit as a writer for making me care about characters who were only in the story for a short time, and were introduced specifically to die...well done
I do like the continued evolution of Chuck as a character as he grows up and gains a bit of an edge. The Chuck in this story seems like the type of character who dosnt like the spy world, but is willing to do whats required to survive and complete the mission. I see this version of Chuck as a character who wouldnt kill needlessly, but wouldnt shy away from killing if he felt it was necessary.
That being said, you alluded to the idea of Sarah possibly being ordered to kill Manoosh even if he was innocent. You can argue thats something Sarah might be able to do, but I cant see Chuck being okay with that under any circumstance. In fact thats the kind of thing I think would strongly test their relationship.
Sarah and Ellies conversation was well done as well. I like that youre addressing the toll that experiencing that kind of violence would take on a personas mind. Its not a direction many authors take in their stories.
The other strong moment in that section of story was when you had Sarah talking about killing someone by banging their head on the ground. Even more than the mission she flashed back on, this stuck out to me, because its such a brutal description of violence...Much like biting or eye-gouging, its the kind of thing you could imagine someone doing in a real life-and-death struggle.
...overall, a strong chapter, and definitely worth the wait. Looking forward to the next one

Massive update but I loved it! :D
The Graham segment was not dark, it was gruesome! Killing the MI6 Director's family was heartbreaking! All for a NWO! Graham's day will come. Count on it!
My fav part was Sarah's conditions and the threat to GB! GB needs to take Sarah seriously because she'll follow up on her threat! Mercy! :O
