So excited that it's Castle Monday. I hope that we have some cute Caskett scenes today!
Yup, me too! Sadly I have to wait til tuesday afternoon/evening to watch this episode.. And I hate to wait when it's about Castle! ;)
Looking forward to this episode as it looks like it will be light-hearted and fun. Since last week's episode I've seen many complaints from disgruntled shippers because the focus of "Under The Influence" was on Esposito rather than their beloved Caskett. It looks like he'll get a bit more screen time tonight as well, but that's more than fine with me! It is not signalling the end of the world if the supporting cast get a bit more screen time, thus cutting into "Caskett time". I'm sure there are others out there that would agree with that statement. Anyway, let's have some fun with tonight's episode. Can't wait to see the promo for "Recoil" afterwards though!
I am so excited about this episode. It looks good, especially since it seems to be a continuation of "head case" I think. Anyway I can't wait. I know it will be good.
Don't want another Esposito centered episode. Because it only left 12 epsiodes for the season End. 12episodes!! (and we dont even know if will be realeased the 6th season) so its OK, on episode to support cast, but thats it and thats enough.Pleople who become addicted to castle in the first place,because CASKETT. And this season in very good in my opinion, but i feel like the produceres are affraid to the relationship to get boring, so they are not focus much. In the past 4 seasons, Castle and Kate have a lot of more scenes for episode, playfull, sweet, or even dramatic scenes! Now, that they are together and it could be explored much better, they aren't!what about some sex scene? ILY from kate? more intimitate conversations? plans for the future? MORE MOMENTS BETWEEN THEM.I love the hole cast, and last episode was not so bad, but i miss the moments that make me roll on the floor like an idiot saying "ahhhh*.*" that briefs moments we had in every episodes that makes us get hooked!And thats why i things this episode will be again about esposito and her passion for the girl, and then will be espo and lanie... and what a heck?! i dont care , esposito is great but is not the main character! episodes like 5x02, 5x10, 5x09 for instance, they are lovely because he have caskett moments, and we have ryan and espo playfull! what else?!
Meh... you haven't even seen it yet.
I got hooked on Castle because of the writing. Yes, I love Caskett, but I also love how this is the only show on television where I don't know who the killer is before the first commerical break. I also love the team dynamic between the fab 4, love how Ryan & Espo play off of each other, and love Castle @ home. I trust Marlowe to find the perfect balance; he's never let me down.
The writing? Seriously? M-kay. For me Fillion was the only thing that made the show worth watching. He's gotten lazy, tho.
Why do you think that he has gotten "lazy"? I'm just asking. I don't see how he has, but I want to know why you think so.
This episode looks really good, I can't wait. I loved "Under the Influence" last week, I thought Jon Huertas was amazing and carried his episode perfectly. And he's not bad to look at either. LOL I don't mind having to look at him for 40+ minutes.
Just because espo is getting a bit of screen time and coz the sneaks show a bit of him doesnt mean its ginna b all about him again this is like a few mins of a 42 minute episode how can people judge based on that
do you think we are gonna have another Espo-centric episode? 2 in a row? stop being dummies and use your brains for a minute.
Oh my goodness I only have 5 hours to wait. It just seems like forever. I just can't wait to see this episode. I look forward to castle ever Monday. Even reruns. Being on castle.
episode was weaaaak as hell
So if this episode was so weak for you why don't you tell me exactly what you want to see in an episode? Tell me a detailed scene of what you want.
Anon 6:42, there are so many fan fics with detailed scenes of what we want :)
I'm not the same person, but I want a case that's actually interesting where I care about something about it (either curiosity or I care about the people, etc.), where I can't guess it easily/in the beginning of the episode, that has well-written and devised plot twists (and is well written in general where I'm not taken aback by something one of the characters said because it seems out of place), that is intense and gets me on the edge of my seat at least once, that is funny at times but not slapstick or too much based on pop culture knowledge (some is ok, but I tend not to get those jokes), that has some character growth or interesting interactions between the main cast and grows the two main characters/let's us see more about them due to their relationship with others (or each other) so I know there is something at stake for the characters. "Caskett" fits in with the last part, but even without that, for an ep to be good that's what I want to see.
She does not look very happy with Castle.... What if it turns out like 5X2 (cloudy with a chance of murder)? Solo EXCITED :)
good episode and beckett's smile at the end is wonderful after castle said...she looks happy
That's a pretty good ep with a pretty good case.This is no Espo's episode and there's a good scene between Alexis and her father.No Caskett moments but a good feeling between them..What about Gates??
Saw the episode & I think the writers could have taken it as the perfect setup for Beckett getting to know more about Castle's past (like an continuation of 5x10's end).I mean there clearly were parallels between Castle & Randolph & them changing their lifes for their kids, but unfortunately the writers decided to focus on another boring Alexis-is-so-grown-up-and-Daddy-has-his-issues-with-it-storyline, that was soooo morally, that I almost rolled my eyes.And if that wasn't already enough material to be annoyed about, they had to put in a horny Esposito. I'm sorry, but the things he said weren't funny, but made him look foolish & immature instead. Do the writers know where they want to go with Esplanie or were theyjust desperate fir another storyline for Esposito?!Don't get me started on the Caskett-scenes or better: the lack thereof. I'm not sure why AWM & Co are so scared to show their leading pair as what they are in this season: not only partners in crime, but partners in life. One little scene per episode would be enough, wouldn't it?Letting suspects talk about sex & stuff & sharing looks is nice, but absolutely not enough to make believe that they actually do more than look at home. But again we get nothing & that saddens me.It's not that I hated the episode, I really enjoyed the interrogaton-scene with the stalking ex-girlfriend, but like I initially stated, this episode had so much potential that was wasted. And that's why I'm afraid that this episode will be end like the one from last week: watched only once!
Anon6:32, very well said. I can't say it in any better way. This episode is only worth watching once. I will rewatch significant others this week too.
AMarlowe has a new set of writers working with him, and don't really know where they are taking this but it lacks the depth pas tesla sons have had in character development as well as interesting cases. Not to mention Caskett on screen being portrayed more like an old couple constantly a odds with one another. They've actually become quite dull. Hope Terri Miller brings back the magic that was once Castle. I still have hope. The epi was fine...but I guess from past seasons I miss the banter not only between Caskett but all the characters.
oh boy stana is pregnant we're screwed
How do you know stana is pregnant? What makes you think that?
huh? where'd you get that? if this is another 'she's covering her stomach comment' the costume people have always done that because they think it makes her look more like a cop (despite designer clothes).
There is no news on the Web about this. Link please?
Anon 6:33, stop it already. If you don't have anything to talk about..... start any other lame rumor or discussion.... but not this.
Like all good detectives know... If there is no proof and no evidence you have no case.
Stana is NOT pregnant. Remember like in season 3ish when am outfit she wore on a episode was loose or gave her a little bulge or something? Stupid rumors.~ Brittany
How can you be so sure? She hasn't been attending to an event for the past two months, has been wearing loose shirts, a lot of jackets and using folders to cover her bump ..
Like I said... No evidence. No case. Show article or announcement. There isn't even any rumor news on searches on goggle. So don't make assumptions on clothes, tv shots, they have always had her wear these type of clothes.
How can you be sure when she has not even acknowledged she has been in a relationship - and even if she is, it's really none of our business. Stick to the show.
she always wears loose shirts and lots of jackets. it's the style of her character. and she uses folders because they have her lines on them so she doesn't have to memorize as much.
Very average ep. Nothing really important, no movements, just quite boring. But thats just me.I wouldnt say the the ep was bad, but It does look like the writers dont know what to do with caskett. No idea why though, theres so much to explore in theri relationship, the writers just arent doing it. They hold back on the relationship so much sometimes you wonder if they are even together. I get wzanting to keep the initial dynamic of the show, but to a point when you cant even tell that they are together is bad writing in my opinion. Their dynamics have chnaged, for the better, so go all out and use this relationship stpry well and move them forward.
No movement?Did you not see the Alexis and Castle scenes and the vlog concern?Every thing can't be about just Caskett. No show will last on just light and flirty banter and sex scenes. A plot needs to e there and this episode set up something down the line for Castle and Beckett to tackle if something happens to Alexis.I loved this episode! Good case and gokd moment between Castle and Alexis. I love the Castle family dynamic just as much as Castle. His family keeps him grounded and show us the wonderful and loving man that Beckett fell in love with.You shippers need to get over needing to see evidence of physicality as proof that they're a couple. I don't need to be slapped over the head week after week.I loved them working this case and the clues dropped that something is going to happen to Alexis and Castle may go too far in protecting her. Guess who will be there for him? Beckett.This show needs to have more going for it than Caskett making googly eyes at each other.
It's the Stana is pregnant troll. It is probably best not to feed it!Episode was good.
It's Beckett's smile at the very end that shows the relationship is moving in the right direction.
Agreed. I love how they interwct with each other week after week.She was also concerned about him after Alexis laid into him and he changed the subject by finding their suspect on tbe video he was watching. Meredith was right about him, but I did love when he talked to Beckett at the beginning about the vlog.This episode was setting something up and with the parallels between Castle and Beau and the comment about it being hard for Beckett to handle the case when the killer may be better than the victim and the ending with a father doing anything for his daughter....Hello!So not a filler. Some shippers are too blind to see a connection unless it's laced wuth flirting and googly eyes. There are other ways, more subtle ways to show a connection between them and I think Marlowe does that very well. I love how they just work well together with the cases and that's part of their connection and passion for each other.Caskett rocks!
I liked the case and the different characters and I will watch it again.I just think that Marlowe is too shy with our two heroes.For me, there's three couples:-Castle & Beckett...Professional investigators.-Caskett...Two people tenderly in love.-Rick & Kate...Two people who live together as a couple...but We never see them live their life together and that's a bad thing.....
Rick and Kate don't live together.....And this is a procedural, not a soap opera. The cases will always tie them together.
WHAT???? I didnt know the next episode was two weeks away :( Crazy twist! It looks like it will be an intense and dark yet amazing episode ...it got my heart pumping. I cannot imagine Kate in that situation.-Brittany
Gotta admit I was slightly disappointed by this one. The case was OK and there was at least one laugh, but there was no Caskett. If this was the first episode that someone watched, I don't think they could even tell that Castle and Beckett were together.
No Caskett?I saw them plenty.Do you mean no shipper moments?Every episode can't slap you upside the head with that.I loved the case in this episode and how Caskett and the guys worked together in solving the case.The Caskett moments for me were seeing them work this case and the set up for the future storyline where we may see a darker Castle and Beckett trying to protect the man she loves and his family.Also two episodes in a row the writers are showing Castle and his thoughts and feelings about being a father with Beckett taking notice. I loved her smile at the end and how Marlowe just told us Castle will do anything for his daughter.... and i'm sure Beckett will be by his side.You shippers need to open your eyes and stop looking for so much physicality as proof of Caskett's love. There are just as many subtle things and moments that shows a deeper connection between them. Loving this season and Caskett!
I have to say that I hate when people start wide spread panic with unsubstantiated rumors but I was taken aback by how obvious it was that her folder was being positioned to hide her abdomen and that smile at the end just sent chills down my spine...not in a good way. What if she is REALLY pregnant and they have to fit that into the show? No,no,no,no!! Don't jump down my throat. I hope I am soooo wrong!! God, I don't know what's happening to me or my favorite show. I have to shake off this horrible feeling!!!Please fandom,say something reassuring . I feel like I am betraying myself by saying this but I will not be re-watching this ep, not my fav. No Caskett or aha moment. So upset with me.Okay, so that whole conversation with Alexis was the biggest foreshadowing I have ever scene...I think the 2 parter may have something to do with that . She will somehow be in harms way. Need to go to my happy place and find my center cuz I feel a little lost right about now...sigh! I know it's only a show which has being making me very happy lately but tonight....meh!!
Omg! Seriously?What is wrong with this fandom?Beckett always carries a freaking folder. It's been going on since the beginning of the series!There's no proof she's pregnant. Beckett always wears coats. It's part of the character's style.Some of you stress for shit. Why stress over something yoh have no way of knowing is true?This site and the ABC boards are so damn insane and negative. I am done with this fandom. Too many infantile comments for my liken and no sense at all about how the tv format works. Everything can't always be about shipper moments. Ugh.
Ok I'm in the minority. I liked this episode... Good humor, loved the look between caskett when interviewing the vic's ex, and I thought the mix of all characters was good. We all need to keep watching to ensure a sixth season.
There were a couple of parallels to Beau and Castle.Castle once dated and slept with a lot of women and his mom went on the road a lot and left him with nannies and even putting him in a boarding school at 15 and he didn't know his dad.. was Castle also looking for something?Then Alexis was born and he once told Beckett being rich afforded him the opportunity to be free to spend time with Alexis. He loves his daughter and i'm so glad this episode showed Castle as a father. I have missed the scenes with Alexis this season and was glad to see we got two of them. I also loved seeing him at the loft to open the episode and sharing a scene with his mom. It felt like classic Castle to me. We saw Beckett being the great cop and investigator that she is in scenes without Castle and switching it up with Espo and Ryan and the interrogation scenes with Castle.I also love how well Beckett and Castle and Ryan and Espo work a case together. I know people want to see Caskett making googly eyes and flirting and sexing each other in each episode, but there wede cases in the earlier seasons where the case was in the forefront and we saw Caskett and the guys more serious and less funny. This was one of those episodes.I love their flirting and banter and the humor, but i'm okay if we don't get it in every episode. I think with 3 big episodes coming up with the drama and action that they wanted to have a cooling off period. I much prefer this episode over Under The Influence.Not a bad job for Jason Wilborn's debut.
Did anyone notice at the beginning when Ryan and Espo were looking for Jones....they first asked a man if he was Jones. I'm pretty sure that guy is Stana's BF Kris. Just wondering if anyone else saw that. Pretty funny if I'm right. Thought the ep was good, but am really looking forward to the next one! Love some action and Caskett moments!
It was her boyfriend. I noticed in the sneak peeks. I lol!
how do you peeps know thats her boyfriend lol.
The episode was an enjoyable one - not overly memorable but with lots of little fun moments. The case was fairly predictable, but the pregnancy twist was a bit of a surprise. I liked how they wove the father/daughter theme throughout. I couldn't tell if Beckett's smile at the end was b/c she was thinking of her own dad or how great a dad she thinks Castle is (maybe both?). On that note, I LOVED that Castle maintained that Alexis is wrong about her vlog; their scenes were good. There were some great facial expressions: Beckett's 'wow - how creepy was that guy' look when Mr. Armstrong showed himself out & her 'distraction' w/ the guys gone nuts dancers, both Castle & Beckett's looks while Tiffany explains the casualties of club sex (assuming this was familiar territory for him, not her), and Lanie's (& Castle's) looks while Espo fumbled with his bra vs. sneaker theorizing. Ryan's ribbing Espo throughout the ep was classic, and Beckett's 'do these plans have a name?' was cute, too - I guess 'shut the front door' (vs. just 'shut up') didn't have the same flow there, but I did miss it. Oh, and while highlighting sound bytes, Castle's 'rampant speculation is my specialty' (shout out to the fans?) and Beckett's snark about Tiffany's bra were also favorites. On a complete side note, is the last time we saw Castle eat whipped cream out of a can the ep where Alexis asked him about not knowing his father (and he postulated he could've invented whipped cream in a can)? It does seem like some groundwork is being laid.
I just finished this episode of castle and I loved it. It was definitely not a filler episode. It had a lot of depth and meaning. It was a great case. First off Beckett is definitely a lady in love with castle. There is no doubt about it. I can see it in her body language and the way she looks at castle. For her it seems like true love. I loved when she was staring at the incredibly sexy men and castle was trying to get her attention. I thought that was funny. But I can tell she sees castle as her lover and the father of her children when they choose to go there. In the first scene after Alexis left and she was seeing if castle needed to talk. She so loves him and its so obvious. I know everyone wants her to say it but she shows it and demostrates it in every way. She has come into her own person and she's incredibly secure in this relationship. There were so many caskett moments in it and I loved it. No they were playing tonsil hockey, and they weren't displaying over active PDA but they had many moments and I loved it. I also loved Ryan in this episode. Esposito was good too. Ryan though is just so handsome and adorable. He is going to be a great father. He displays so much maturity and he is funny. I truly enjoyed him in this episode. I can't wait until he expands his family. He is an amazing guy. Honestly for me I loved the entire episode. There wasn't anything I didn't like. I can see the progression in the relationship and I like where it's going. To me it seems like she is beginning to think about a family with him. The look she had and the smile at the end gave me that impression. She has found a home for her heart. I feel bad for those of you out there who didn't watch the episode, thought it was a filler episode or completely about Esposito which it wasn't at all. Yeah he obviously fell hard for the supposed bada** bodyguard but that's who he is. This episode was completely worth watching. I hope the majority of you liked it and I will watch it again. It was better than I thought it would be. My name is amber and I lived this episode of castle.I'm a true castle fan for life. Ugh now two week wait. I won't make it.
Okay I hate to be annoying but not only is it none of our business if Stana Katic is pregnant and she isn't but why do you honestly care. If she is that's wonderful for her. Unless you had a part in it you shouldn't be so rude. Like seriously if I were her and reading these I would be offended. That's her decision. And she stated in an jnterview that she does want kids but she needs to have a boyfriend/husband which she doesn't have in her life. She says work is what she cars about right now.Second the only reason those if you said this wax weak was because for you it didn't have the kind of moments you wanted. I loved it. And there was plenty of caskett. I love the progression of this relationship. They are adults in a mature relationship. It doesn't mean they are going to be having sex in every scene. If you want that then rent porn. You are not going to get that in this show. The writing is great. If you think you can do better then call Andrew Marlowe and tell him cause I'm sure you can't.And for all of you who thought this was Esposito central it wasn't. It wasn't at all. All you thought if bd size if the sneak peak and again it wasn't. Seriously you should know by now not to judge before you watch but you obviously like complaining before you even see the episode. Again you were wrong. He had his normal scenes.Now I don't wang to wait two weeks unfortunately I have to. I have no idea what I'm going to do but I can't wait for next episode. I love castle and forever remain a fan. Goodnight castle fans.
Okay... I have never read these post-ep comments before, but now I did, I have one thing to say about it: I don't think that Stana is pregnant, BUT if she was (again, I am saying: I don't think she is) shouldn't we be happy for her? Instead of going on how terrible it would be... I stopped watching Bones a (long) while ago, bit I know that they managed to incorporate Emily Deschanel's pregnancy into the story. Same thing would be to happen in the Castle cast, I am pretty sure the writers could make it work. So, please, stop the hate and the worry. Let happen what happens. If Stana's pregnant (again: I don't think so), be happy for her. If she's not, then please, keep supporting her and carry on watching Castle. In either case, really.
Its Brittany again.... I hope my above comment about Stana didn't come across as rude if by chance she is (although I doubt she is) but if she is like Orlissa said I am happy for her...but lets not start pregnancy rumors just because of something she wore this episode or how she held a file.on a bit of a different note I saw above that some people thought that was Stanas boyfriend in that quick scene. I don't know if that's him but she does have a bf. I kinda did some research lol. I knew there were rumors she was dating a guy named Kris... some people think this is her brother as did I until I did some digging haha. Stana thanks him(Kris) on her web page and has a link to his site...he is like an entrepreneur/ motivational speaker sort of thing I guess. Anyways I looked at pictures of him and its the same guy she has been seen with several times at various events. it made me a little sad but I have no clue why because I absolutely LOVE Stana and am inspired by her and she deserves happiness! I guess I am just a bit sad that Ill never probrably know there story...but truly I AM HAPPY FOR HER... and the her bf is very lucky to have her. Stana is a private person when it comes to personal stuff and I will respect that...I love that she is so different from other celebrities. She is an amazing lady and it makes me SOOO sad to know Ill never get to meet or talk to her :/ Oh and yes it makes me sad a bit whenever I see a picture or her on Castle because lets face it any female would LOVE to look like her. Anyways I'm going off on a tangent... I probably sound crazy..
Well I did enjoy the episode and the parallels drawn between the fathers and how they change their lives for their daughter.The ending was very powerful to me the way Castle commented Absolutely and A father will do anything for his daughter.The look he gives tells me Castle will get scary when someone touches his daughter!
More Caskett More like. Little Caskett little like. We r hopeless Caskett shippers.
Hopefully Stana is pregnant and will opt out of the show. I'd love to see them bring in a new lead, someone who Fillion has better chemistry with.
(I'm sure Stana realizes her clock is ticking. I hope, for her sake, that she is preggers. She seems to really like kids.)
What?! Let me tell you, if Stana (or Nathan) leaves the show, I´ll NEVER watch it again! Castle IS NF and SK, at least for me (and I´m sure there are a lot of people thinking like me)!:)
The problem is Fillion, Stana Katic can act chemistry with a wet paper bag. He is paid the most on this show, he should at least try to act like his character is in love with Beckett.
OMG how dare you say anything against Stana Katic - she is a goddess dont you know that??? Now you will burn in hell!
Not to be dirspectfull anon 2.27, but you must be really dumb. The show is about castle and Beckett, not either. So if Katic leaves, the show is over, same goes if Fillion leaves. They both make the show, to think otherwise is just stupidity on your end. If you think Katic isn't a good actress , fine that's your opinion. Then let the show end, and the fillion can go on to another show with another lead and katic can do the same with another lead. But on this show, it's both of them or nothing at all. That is a fact.
Anon 2:59, don't start with the Stana Katic's fans bullshit, it's people like you who want to see conflict where there is none who gives the Castle fandom a bad name.Stana Katic is not a Goddess, she's a very good actress and Nathan Fillion isn't a God either, he's a very good actor.
LOL! This conversation thread. Oh how I wish I could see the ip addresses of the comments posted. I bet half of them are exactly the same. i.e. it's one troll stirring the pot to get everyone going. I'm just gonna grab some popcorn and sit back and watch.
I enjoyed this ep, as I do all episodes whether there are blatant Caskett moments or not. As others have highlighted, there were plenty of moments that added insight into the deeper relationship between Castle and Beckett for those who were open to seeing and interpreting them. The show has always been good with subtext (IMO) and we don't always need it to be shoved in our faces, it's part of the appeal of the show for mem.Every season needs (and has had) balance across the episodes in terms of humour, Casekett relationship development, Alexis-Castle time, Martha-Castle time, support cast character development (Ryan, Espo, Lanie, Gates) and pure procedural elements and this season is certainly doing that and delivering nicely IMO.On a more comedic note - and not to say that Stana doesn't always look amazing - but did anyone else notice her VPL as she hurried to intercept Candace Mayfield's dad in the precinct?? Minor oops for the wardrobe department.As always, a lovely end to my Tuesday (Australian time)Jax
OK, I haven´t watched the episode yet, and decided to came here how it worked for you...but honestley I gave up after reading some coments, decided its better to watch and see what I think.And frankly, what are all those comments about Stana being pregnant or not? I thought we were here to discuss the show, not the private life of the actors! But looks like now every week the hypotetical Stana´s pregnancy is the issue...I don´t care if she´s pregant or not, not my business... and how can someone say that if she is "we are screwed"? I sure am not, nor the show, it won´t be the first time (nor the last) a lead actress gets pregant and the show goes on!!Well, if she is pregnant, all I have to say is CONGRATULATIONS! (and taking the risk of feeding the trolls, let me say this: pay attention to her face...even if the bell is hiden, usually the face shows it):)
Just adding to this... Not that it is any of our business until/if/when Stana does decide to have a baby but I do just want to point out something to those who think it's a Bad Thing. Gillian Anderson spent the latter half of Season 1 and early part of S2 of the X Files pregnant and, at times very obviously so. The baby wasn't written into the show (it's not always) but the whole abduction story arc was written to allow for her maternity leave. In the post abduction scene in "One Breath" she's lying on a hospital bed hovering between life and death and has got the most enormous boobs because she was just a few days post birth and, well, yes, it does show in other places. ;-) As a viewer, if you know the actress (who is just doing her job) is pregnant, and the character isn't, then you just have to suspend a bit of disbelief and look beyond the obvious body changes she's going through.Gillian's pregnancy led to Scully's abduction and it turned out to be a central pillar to the mythology of the show, directly resulting in some pretty damn awesome episodes.
Anon 2:52 AM - Its ironical that you chose a Nathan Fillion quote to describe Stana :) No point explaining because Nathan is always responsible for everything bad happening in this world - but just go and re-watch final frontier,secrets safe with me or swan song and the looks he gives to Beckett - without uttering a single dialgoue. Beckett on the other hand seems always snappy and disregardful of Castle.
and pigs fly
They really do! They're called porcus volantes, and they're found on one place in the world; a teeny tiny Island of Mentulanones. David Attenborough's made a documentary about them and all... innit!
I'm sorry, I thought it was a discussion post about S05E12, not bones thrown to a dog!!..All those people wondering if S.Katic is pregnant, if she's gonna leave the show, if Fillion is really playing as good as he can and so on.....Are you still in college, all of you?Maybe you would just realize that this is a TV show, that characters are just actors who have each their own lives.I love the show, I think that case was really good, even if I think that the two main characters are pretty cold.But I will keep on watching it until the season finale b/c I'm pretty sure something's gonna happen and I don't wanna miss it!!But, come on guys, just be adults a little more!
Srsly this is the most juvenile board I have ever come across!
Adored Rick being protective of his daughter this is clearly foreshadowing Alexis being in danger later. I so love their relationship but Alexis was so rude to him at the start I wanted to slap her! Rick is the best dad in the world as far as I'm concerned she is so lucky to have him. Loved the bit where he says he wished he could wrap her up and hide her away in a cave for protection, I wonder how many parents secretly think that with their kids.I wished Kate had been allowed to comfort Rick about what was happening with Alexis but there was nothing and when will Kate and Alexis actually TALK to each other - their lack of interaction is getting on my nerves.Case was fine and I enjoyed the episode overall.BUT, I have to say that if I was a newcomer to this show I wouldn't have a clue that the two main leads were in a relationship and in love. I adore them as a couple but the last few episodes have been very slim pickings indeed if you love Caskett - this episode could have happened in any other prior season JMO.The promo looks great but I hope they show more of Kate and Rick acting like a couple supporting and loving each other.And I wish people would not make personal comments about the actors I find it intrusive and insulting towards them, it doesn't matter if they will never see this blog but it's kind of embarrassing.Can we comment on the show please, I enjoy those discussions.
Final scene. do you think she was thinking of Castle as a father or as Jim as a father?
I think she's thinking about Castle as a father for their forthcoming baby..................
Jim wasn't part of the episode and her thinking about her own dad doing anything to protect her, didn't fit. Not that Jim wouldn't do anything to protect Kate and she knows it, but it didn't fit here since he wasn't in the episode. She was definitely thinking of Castle as their baby's father.
I think both. She's always seemed to admire Castle's parenting. Her thoughtful look before the smile gave her enough time to think of her own dad, too, though. It looked a little bit like a daddy's girl smile.
Neither! I think she just thought it was an incredibly sweet comment; one they both could relate to...
I didn't know about Stana's supposed pregnancy but when I saw her smile at the end of the episode I thought "Beckett is pregnant!"
I just watched the episode, and it wasnt great but it was much better than last weeks. The case was quite good, and I really miss caskett but Im hoping we are rewarded soon. Anyway, the whole Alexis vlog and foreshadowing that people are talking about seems likely. I think she will somehow get into some trouble and as mentioned in the last scene, a father would anything for his daughter, Castle will get her out of it, but probably in some illegal sort of way. I have a feeling that by maybe doing things his way and not keeping Kate in the loop will cause conflict between our leads. I think the trust issue will be raised again and Kate will be angry and hurt that he didnt trust her to handle things and that he maybe did things his way, maybe by going around the law and maybe indirectly putting Espo and Ryan and others in danger just to save his daughter. Of course he is a father and he will only think about saving alexis but Beckett has to think about his and alexis safety and her teams safety and Castle might screw up a well planned rescue mission in a desperate attempt to save alexis. I dont know, I just feel somewhewre in the two parter, caskett is gonna have a huge fight. I mean Marlowe loves conflict so its possible.And in my opinion, the last scene with Beckett smiling has nothing to do with Castle but more to do with her own father, at least I hope so. I love Kate and Jims relationship.Also whats this about Stana being pregnant. Come on guys she wears loose outfits all the time, and if you guys are talking about the slight bump, maybe she just had a heavy meal before shooting. I get that way too. And if she actually is pregnant, well then Im happy for her. Many people have said how Stana loves kids and how she is so good with them, im sure she would make a good mom. Also we finnaly got a good look at Stanas boyfriend. He is huge and very good looking...Love that she has been with him for like 8 years, from way before she started Castle. Shows real love and commitment there, especially when she can have any man she wants, or someone within the industry. But she stuck with him and I love how protective she is of her relationhsip. She keeps it so private, shows how important it is to her. Gotta respect that about her.Anyway as usual Stana and Nathan were great but Im really looking forward to the next one. JB case is back. Love that!Cheers from Malaysia!
Need to keep the personal comments out of this blog and stick to the show Castle. It's just bad gossip by trolls.respect their privacy and personal life. They are people just like us.
Another great EP from AM. I loved the looks between Beckett and Castle. Espo was funny...the man's games needs work. Interesting twist at the end of the case. I look forward to the February sweeps!
In general I liked the episode. However, I was waiting for that moment where Beckett is just like "oh wow, this is what Castle used to be like." Castle cleaned up his act when Meredith got pregnant, just as Beau did. I do wonder if they will add a Caskett heart-to-heart soon. They've been together about 8 months, so I'm hoping that slowly we'll get to see them explore more commitment. Not necessarily 'OH, by the way, we're having a kid' but maybe an expansion on Castle's comment that he'd like to have the option.
Great episode. Look if you trolls want a wild outlandish rumor, try this: has anyone heard Alexis specifically refer to Max's gender? Rewatching her vlog entry, she is very clearly playing the pronoun game. Alexis experimenting with a girlfriend would be in-character and also a VERY courageous and edgy move for a show like this. (In fact, what if "Max" was already shown as one of Alexis's fellow cosplayers in The Final Frontier?)
Nice thought, but Max is clearly referred to as a boy in Secret Santa.
I was wondering about that. I was sure she referred to Max as a He but I could not be sure. Thanks for clarifying.I saw a brief discussion on here (somewhere) a few days ago about the possibility of Alexis having a girlfriend. I have to say, I find it quite irritating when a TV show takes a character that has shown no hint of anything other than being heterosexual... and makes them gay just for narrative purposes. Introduce good, rounded gay characters, by all means, but don't just point at your cast and say "oh, we'll make this one gay". Urgh!
Ok not sure if anyone realized this, but yesterday I was watching the re-runs of Castle on TNT and they played an episode called "Head Case" (Season 4 Episode 3) and the guy (Bo Randolph)that was murder in "Death Gone Crazy" (Season 5 Episode 12) was also in Season 4. This was the episode where Castle and Beckett were trying to solve a crime where the body disappeared. Turns out it has to do with a project (or something like that) where they work for a company called Passage Way, a cryonics company. People would sign a contract where when they die, a GPS would go off and someone will go get the body and put out it on ice. Well the guy that owns "College Girls Gone Crazy" was in that episode (Bo Randolph)and at first he was a suspect in killing the guy (Dr. Lester Hamilton) in the beginning. I was not sure if anyone else realized this and thought I post a little comment on it. I sure didn't until I re-saw that episode.
Castle specifically mentions that case when he arrives at the scene, expressing his loathing for Bo Randolph. That's when Beckett reveals that he's the victim. It's actually nice callback.
