Storyline

Castle is grieved when Becket, once regaining health, tells him to leave her time without calling for months. Yet when she returns to work after therapy, Ryan and Esposito tell Castle help them keep the case of her mothers killers going, behind ex-IA by-the-book-Captain Victoria Gates's back. They work out the only remaining angle are bank files lost in a fire, according to decorated officer Rod Halstead definitely no arson. Becket grudgingly passes her gun exam, but can't perform in real danger anymore in their assigned case, the ingeniously staged murder of a rock band member's girlfriend. The boys find Becket is the next, last logical target, and are surprisingly offered safety for all if the case is laid to rest, but things turn out differently. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Richard Castle: This doesn't make any sense. It was supposed to be over. Montgomery sacrificed himself. Killing Lockwood and all his guys, he said he was ending it. He said he was doing it to keep her safe. So if the plan was to keep her safe, then why the hell are they still coming after her?
Det. Javier Esposito: I don't know, bro. God knows who else is involved.

An okay season premiere
29 December 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Okay, so it probably would have been a good idea to have rewatched the finale before seeing this episode. The summary at the beginning wasn't nearly enough to make me relive what I felt back in May and now everything is rusty.

The opening sequence was beautifully done even if I did think things were getting a touch melodramatic with the Castle/Martha "I put her in the crosshairs" bit.

Beckett doesn't remember anything … or does she?! I so bet she does! Look at the way she was watching Castle closely, reading his reaction.

Iron Gates. Hee.

And then the rest of the episode happened. High points being that Castle/Beckett moment on the swing and Castle/Alexis. Low point being the case. What was that?! That was a pathetic attempt at a case, even if this episode wasn't about the casework.

Interesting game-changer with Castle having to persuade Beckett to stop investigating her mother's case. The whole mythology and backstory is a bit blurry in my head so can't comment on how realistic this whole thing is.

I really really don't know why I can't get into this show as much as the rest of the fandom. I think it's Castle – when he's not having those "I'm in love with Beckett" moments, I find him quite irritating.

PS. See I knew Beckett remembered!
