Kate Beckett: Not if I climb on your shoulders.
[seeing Castle's expression]
Kate Beckett: What? We've done it before.
Richard Castle: Yeah, you say that like it was pleasant. And we weren't handcuffed.
Kate Beckett: Who's got no faith now? Come on, Castle, we have no idea when they're coming back, or even if they're coming back at all.
Richard Castle: [glancing at Beckett's heeled shoes] Last time, you were wearing sneakers.

Could have been a bit more
6 December 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The Scene starts with the two main character hand cuffed in an odd way. They do their usual double meaning lines flawlessly, but its getting a bit cliché. The biggest achievement of the episode is letting us know that Beckett can "Run" wearing her heels!!!

Somehow the episode ended a bit suddenly, seems like the thinking hat is worn by Castle and Beckett only, I think the series is mature enough to show the importance of the other members of the team.

There was a nice tussle of words between Javier and Lanie, a few impregnating exchange of looks. Capt. Victoria started showing concerns for her team members.

The story could have been more evolved and stick to being more Crime Genre than Drama, saying that there wasn't much of Drama either, hope it picks up in the next episode.
