Did You Know?


When Beckett is setting up her date with Brad the firefighter, Castle notices her coyly twirl her hair around her finger. At the end of the episode, when Castle invites her out for burgers, she does it again, though more subtly, as they leave the precinct. See more »


(at around 23 mins) When Alexis is complaining about Castle's presence on the Most Eligible Bachelors list, she mentions a friend who is "... seventeen, but she'll be legal in three months." The age of consent in New York is seventeen, not eighteen. See more »

Not Bad
14 April 2014 | by Anshuman KumarSee all my reviews

This definitely one of the many memorable episodes of Castle. It becomes quite evident by now that both Castle and Beckett are inwardly fighting about their feelings for one another and the jealously factor is quite adorable indeed. The blind date was indeed quite hilarious.And once again Castle impresses once again with the plot twists. The Castle-Beckett duo also manage to do what they do best and keep the audience amused at the same time as there are many comic scenes throughout too like a scene with a tarantula or the usual flirty banter between Castle and Beckett. So if you are a die-hard Castle fan, I believe this episode is also a must watch for you.
