[first lines]
Kate Beckett: I'm telling you, something happened, something changed. It's been weird between us lately.
Lanie Parish: Lately? Kate, it's been weird for four years.
Kate Beckett: No. This is different. He's different. It's like he's pulling away.
Lanie Parish: Well, can you blame him? He's probably tired of waiting.
Kate Beckett: Waiting for what?
Lanie Parish: What do you think? The guy is crazy about you, snd despite your little act, you're crazy about him.

Destroyed by 'Hollywood Brit' casting...!
11 March 2015 | by mcguin71See 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...
