Did You Know?


In one scene, Castle and Beckett talk about Lanie and Esposito's reluctance to admit they want to be together, despite their wanting to, and wonder why people punish themselves like that. This is an amusing juxtaposition of their own relationship; on one hand, Beckett is aware of how Castle feels about her and, while she has similar feelings about him, she is determined not to admit and act on them. On the other, even though he's professed his feelings, Castle doesn't take the initiative in pursuing it because he's waiting for any kind of signal from her that there's something to pursue.

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.
