After some initial resistance, Chuck's father Steve Bartowski returns home with Chuck to see Ellie. Upon discovering that Fulcrum is planning to release a computer virus at the launch of the new Roark Instruments operating system, Chuck infiltrates the company by landing a job that he has always wanted. However, he loses the job after he tries to stop RI's founder Ted Roark from proceeding with the launch. Despite Chuck telling them that Roark has an Intersect, Sarah and Casey refuse to help him find it without proof. Chuck goes alone and on the way, he is aided by his father, who turns out to be Orion. They try to use Roark's Intersect to erase the original Intersect from Chuck, but fail. Steve is captured by Fulcrum, who wants him to finish building Roark's Intersect.
