I liked Chuck too, and was a bit sad that he died. We didn't get nearly as much time with him to build up a connection as others though.
And this was, actually an episode with very FEW deaths. Brie and Chuck are unavoidable, while Molly's, Ben's and (possibly Omid, if you take Clem with you) are all completely optional. That goes from 4 (maybe 5) characters dying to just 2 depending on what you choose to do.
