Did You Know?


Beckett senses that something is different between her and Castle. In a bit of dramatic irony, the audience knows, while Beckett does not, what that difference is: in the previous episode, he learned that for the past year, she has been lying about not remembering her shooting - including his profession of love for her - and is growing impatient waiting for her to admit and act on her own feelings.

The dress that Beckett wears is so low cut that her bullet scar should be easily visible, but is not. See more »


Kate Beckett: I didn't realize that dancing was part of the plan.
Colin Hunt: Well, it offers a perfect vantage point.
Kate Beckett: Huh. Do you come to a lot of these events?
Colin Hunt: No, thank god. Why?
Kate Beckett: You just seem very... confident.
Colin Hunt: Oh. Well, that's because my companion is the most beautiful woman in this room.
Kate Beckett: That's clearly the champagne talking. I'm sure you're just comfortable here because you're amongst your own people.
Colin Hunt: These aren't my people. My people are the ones carrying the trays. Yeah. I grew up on the East End. My mum cleaned...

Destroyed by 'Hollywood Brit' casting...!
11 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

I usually thoroughly enjoy an episode of Castle where even the 'poor' ones are decidedly 'above average'.

Not this one though. Whatever score I wanted to give it was instantly halved by the odd, and most definitely wrong, choice of an Australian to play a Limey - Does anyone even use the term 'Limey' anymore?

Apparently this guy was from the East End of London but with an Eton education who then joined the about a stretch! I'm surprised he didn't claim to be a minor Royal too!

And what's with the never ending will they/won't they with Castle & Beckett...for goodness sake it's 4 series in and its going nowhere very slowly, there's not even been a near miss of a relationship...

I really hope the writers and producers have learned from the bad reception to this episode!!!!!

For now I'm simply trying to resist the temptation to jump ahead to the next episode and not bother putting any effort im to finishing watching this one...
