You’ve seen the galleries of most awesome moments and favorite guest stars. You’ve read all the other interviews. Now Zap2it’s “Chuck” finale countdown concludes with a chat with Chuck himself, Zachary Levi.

Zachary Levi didn’t get choked up with a group of reporters during filming of the “Chuck” finale in December. To hear him tell it, though, it was one of the few times in the show’s last week of production that he didn’t.

“[The final day] is going to be nothing but waterworks, I’m sure,” Levi said. “But last week, we shot pretty much all of the goodbye scenes — all the characters saying goodbye to one another — and when art is imitating life simultaneously in that moment, and I’m looking at my friends of five years, my family of five years, in a scene I’m having to look at them say goodbye and I really am saying goodbye? That was — yeah.”

He doesn’t have the sense, though, that either the on- or off-screen farewells will be permanent.

“It’s not forever,” Levi says, “although I’ll probably never see Adam Baldwin again. That’s not true. … It’s actually not even that final in the world of ‘Chuck,’ if it were to continue. Obviously Chuck and Morgan [Joshua Gomez] are going to be best friends the rest of their lives. Chuck and Ellie [Sarah Lancaster] are still brother and sister, and therefore Awesome [Ryan McPartlin] is still my brother-in-law. And Casey [Baldwin] would … we would all still continue to see each other in some way, shape or form.

“But the world that has been created, and the world in which we all live and work, has drastically changed and is drastically different, and so, you know, we do say goodbyes, at least for the time being. And it’s gnarly. It’s really, really surreal.

Given what’s happened to Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) over the past couple episodes, with the Intersect having wiped out her memory, Levi says the finale also acts as “a reset of sorts.”

“The ‘will they/won’t they’ dynamic kind of comes back into play, particularly in the second half of the finale — episode 13,” he says. “There’s a ton of homage to the pilot, to the origins of these characters and their journey together. And everyone’s in it, and that’s awesome, and it’s been really emotional.”
