When Beckett takes Castle to the place where he allegedly had lived in a tent while he was missing, Castle tells her he could never have stayed there because it faced the ocean and, due to research he had done for an aborted book, he had an abiding fear of tsunamis and said his house in the Hamptons was on the inland side, not the ocean side. However, in "A Deadly Game" (season 2), Castle tried to convince Beckett to come to his house in the Hamptons because it was right on the ocean. See more »


Richard Castle: To say I owe you an apology seems an understatement.
Kate Beckett: I don't want an apology, Castle. I just want to understand.
Richard Castle: Well, you know me, Kate. I wouldn't just leave.
Kate Beckett: There's evidence. We found the place where you were staying.
Richard Castle: Where?
Kate Beckett: What difference does it make?
Richard Castle: Because I want to go there. Maybe it'll help me remember. Whatever happens, I need answers. And so do you.

Lame, lazy writing
30 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

There was way toooo much left to clichéd tropes and unbelievable behavior from the characters in this episode. They just wouldn't act that way if this was a real situation. I don't have a great feeling about where this is going. I wanted SO much for it to be better, and to believe that the season 6 ender was just an aberration. Sad. Why on earth do the writers think they are suddenly writing a lame soap opera? I came to Castle after dismissing television shows for much of the past decade, because so much of it is SO bad. I want Castle to be awesome, I want clever plots, sparkling wit and excellent writing. Please writers, make it better. You have great directors and an excellent cast, please give them something great to work with!
