Storyline

A man's naked corpse seems to have fallen to his death, but a toxin killed him first. The modestly paid company employee turns out to be a serial seducer, who mysteriously deviated from his usual MO to pretend being a rich man. While disease grows over groom Ryan's future, Castle comes up with alternative, business-related motives and suspects on top of many scorned women. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

When Lainie mentions that the victim had been poisoned with colchicine, Castle mentions that it is a drug used to treat rheumatism. The most common condition treated with colchicine is gout, not rheumatism. Colchicine is also used in plant breeding; treatment of seedlings with a colchicine solution doubles the chromosomes and enhances various characteristics of the plant; however, the treated plants are poisonous; only the succeeding generations are safe for consumption. An episode of Quincy M.E. featured a plot centered around stolen marijuana plants that had been treated with colchicine to increase their potency, becoming lethal to anyone who smoked them.

Quotes

Richard Castle: She knew she was going to kill him, so she booked the room anonymously.
Kate Beckett: Yeah, but then why sleep with him? Why not just push him out the window?
Richard Castle: Because. She's a black widow.

Richard Castle: Coldest hearted creature on Earth. She lures an unsuspecting male, takes him into her web, and then, the moment they culminate - as soon as he feels the ecstasy of achieving his biological destiny - she opens up her jaws and eats him alive.

This episode is everything a Castle episode should be, striking the perfect balance between comedy, character and crime.
11 January 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Disclaimer - this post contains a summary of the episode (and therefore spoilers, if you haven't seen it).

The Basics: An innocent couple doing some innocent fruit-shopping is slightly perturbed by the sudden appearance of an airborne corpse. Suicide, you say? Oh no - the corpse recently got jiggy, and (as it turns out) belongs to a pick-up artist with a gaggle of scorned gals in his wake. Beckett and the team investigate the murder, while Ryan prepares for his wedding with a lime-juice-exclusive diet that makes him delusional and causes some friction in his bromance.

The Highlights: This episode features, above all, some great Castle-family moments. Building on a hunch, Castle asks his daughter and mother how they would kill a man who had cheated on them, and their response is a hilariously gruesome description of the various ways in which the deed could be done.

There's also some good Caskett moments, like a jealous "who?!" from Beckett when it's revealed that Castle is bringing a +1 to the wedding (just Alexis, it turns out), and a conspicuous pre-wedding walk down the aisle as Castle leads Beckett to her seat (way to hit us over the head with that one, ABC). A spoiler alert has suggested there will be a Beckett / Castle kiss in episode 14, so it would appear they're ramping up the proverbial "foreplay" to ensure the audience is positively brimming with anticipation before any payoff takes place.

The Verdict: This episode is everything a Castle episode should be, striking the perfect balance between comedy, character and crime. Mix a sappy character plot (a wedding) with a fun and twisty crime to solve, and you've got Castle gold. It's hella-light by crime drama standards, but isn't that why we love this show? 4.5 / 5
