Castle > Castle Season Finale Review: "A Deadly Game" > Comments Page 2
Loved the finale. Finally Beckett gets a taste of her own medicine.
After treating Castle like crap for over a year when he's done nothing but help her, support her, and even saves her life, she gets the slap in the face she deserves.
I laughed for a solid half hour after the credits rolled.
Now to make it truly delicious, next season she'll be the one chasing him, and he'll get a chance to be the cold, snotty, and dismissive one for a change.
I can't wait!
It's a bit ironic. Just the episode before this one was where Castle looked so upset when he saw Beckett and Demming kissing. And NOW, Beckett's the one who looked really upset when she saw Castle and Gina walking away. Funny how the tables were turned.
damn why don't just let them kiss or something.
it was really sad to see beckett like that
the whole finale I was like 'they are so gonna get together finally' and then at the end I was so disappointed and felt so bad for beckett.. just when she finally figures out how she feels and was so close to actually telling him he takes his ex wife to the hamptons!!!!
I just wanted her to run to him and say she was in love with him ya know its like they are SO SO CLOSE to saying how they feel and the writers are driving me crazy making me wait like this!!! LOL
I felt like I was watching a soap opera at the end of the finale instead of my favorite show. I was disappointed they went the way of Gina the second blood sucking money happy ex wife, I'd rather have seen Castle just leave town on his own and sort out his mixed up life taking some time on his own to figure out how to win Beckett from Demming, instead we get another ploy saga to keep the two leads apart for yet another season.
Beckett finally figures out her feelings and Castle's his to bad they aren't as good with solving their feelings for each other as they can their cases.
Kudos to the entire cast for fine performances and great directing by Rob Bowwman. Stana Katic owned and ruled this episode, Nathan Fillion had a good field day as well.
Disliked the soap opera ending, love the acting. Next season I want to see the writers get some guts and go for a couple together a fun, happy, exciting crime fighting couple of B/C.
Moonlighting was 1985 it's 2010 lets move on from that me
I agree with dmcwin--First, Stana Katic was amazing throughout the entire episode (the entire season, actually). She can convey so much with just facial expressions. It's nice to see a vulnerable side to Beckett. And Nathan Fillion was charming and witty, as always. Those two have oodles of chemistry. I also agree that watching them do this dance for 5 or 6 seasons will get old (just like The X-Files, JAG, Remington Steele, Bones, etc. etc.), but it's too soon to be getting them together just yet. I think the show is at its best when Castle and Beckett are solving crimes together, as a team, with all the witty, flirty banter. I'm so glad the show has grown in popularity and was given a full third season. I won't say the summer will be long, because I'm a teacher :) but I will definitely be ready for more Castle in September!
I think it's telling that Castle was watching "His girl Friday" earlier in the episode because the writing on the show has always reminded me of the classic movie mysteries with witty reparte such as "Friday" and, most especially, "The Thin Man" series. They could manage to make it work together, but I don't know if they would be allowed to work together if they were a couple. Heaven knows the supporting cast will admit what the two of them won't really, and after his less than sterling choices as wives, it would be great to see Castle with a wife who is as intelligent and strong as his daughter and mother!
This show has been brilliant throughout the first two seasons, with great storylines and first rate acting. One of the big talking points has been the ongoing 'will they, wont they' between Beckett and Castle, and the onscreen chemistry between the two has on occasions been mesmorising. There have been many twists and turns in their relationship, most noticebly recently with the introduction of the character of Demming, and this intrigue has only added to the overall storyline. However, as soon as this episode started with the missed calls from his ex, it became only too clear the path the writers were going down. They have decided (for whatever reason) to carry on with this cat and mouse game for a little longer. From their point of view it will certainly make things much easier in the third series - a case of carry on with what is working already, and not take the opportunity that presented itself to shake things up a bit. Their relationship has been one of the focal points of the se
I thought that the finale was just a little bit cliche, and if I put my mind to it, I probably could have plotted it out, but it was, a good finale, nonetheless. I definitely appreciated Beckett reaching out even it her hand wasn't exactly accepted by Castle. I think him moving on just a little was a big step, and that it needed to be done, because first there was Sorenson, now Demming, and Castle never really had anyone. Third season though, Gina needs to go. That would just be too back and forth. I think with the past few episodes, Marlowe and Co. have been absolutely fantastic at giving us some great depth and character development, which they seemed to struggle to do in the middle of the season. If they keep it up, like you said, they can perhaps pursue a little bit of the Castle/Beckett romance successfully. Overall, I was very happy the finale. It left me feeling a little bit depressed at the prospect of Castle off with his deep fried twinkie (...or was that Meredith?), but I thi
Cop out. Pun intended. You could see the Castle end coming a half-hour away especially since the ex hadn't shown up by then. Has no one on Castle watched TNT's The Closer. She manages at first to work for her ex-lover, develop a relationship with an FBI agent, date him, live with him and then marry him all the while keeping the show in top form. Admittedly the relationship is more important to Castle or rather the sexual tension, but it could work. I almost decided to stop watching after the end last night. I was let down. She dumps Demming and then gets shut down. I didn't expect a concrete setting but give the fans hope. I lost patience with Moonlighting and now I am feeling the same. I hope that by the end of summer my feelings change. I'll give Castle two episodes into the next season and that's it. At least The Closer lives up to its title.
Does any one remember the show Ed? OMG, how many seasons were the two main characters circling one another. When they finally got together, the show just vaporized as the writers clearly had not thought through what happens next. With Castle, there is so much material to be explored as Castle and Beckett date, get serious, move in together, perhaps get married, all the while attempting to keep their work-life selves in balance. This has the potential to become an even more interesting show, but alas, the Hollywood writers will likely take the easy way out and just keep the dance between them going. How lame!
I think this finale was wonderfully written and amazingly acted. Wow...Stana Katic gave a powerful performance to the range of Beckett's emotions in this one. Season 2 has seen a great journey for Beckett and Castle with a development of a trusting parnership and friendship. It was satisfying to see their feelings for each other on display over the last few episodes and to see Beckett take a risk in the finale. Was the "bad timing/missed opportunity" ending cliche? Sure...there are only so many storylines and ways writers can spin things. But it was acted out with skill by Fillion and Katic. It seemed a fitting ending to a second season filled with character development, and it will allow the writers to lead into the next season with Castle and Beckett on a new level. It can only increase the tension and heighten the dance between the two to have realized their feelings for each other. I certainly don't want to see this show beacome a saga of 5 or 6 seasons of keeping Castle a
I have been a big supporter of TV romances between main characters. But for some reason, I found myself rooting against Castle and Beckett getting together. I love what's going on between the three of them and was screaming desperately in my head at the end of the finale when Beckett broke it off with Demming. And when Gina walks in while Beckett was trying to explain her feelings, the storyline just plummeted. I have to say, the turn is such a cliche and farfetched. I understand for the tension to go on for the next season, this is the easiest and most obvious way to go, and the writers have all the time in the world to come up with a come back story to making things plausible again. Them going for the easy way out really sucks for audiences, knowing Beckett throw away something that could have been pretty and sweet with Demming. I guess you all know by now, I'm a big fan of Demming's. For one reason, he just has a beautiful chemistry with Beckett, and that's what I absolutely adore i
I agree the writing for this show has been top notch, for the most part, which is why it's one of two shows I bother watching. There have been a few cliches along the way, taken by specific writers, such as too much reliance on Fillion's charm and way with a quip, rather than solid character development.
However, the finale was 41 minutes of greatness and 3 minutes (the last three) of writing disaster. What a cliche to have the ex-wife show up in the middle of Beckett's speech and make some sexual innuendo about their summer together. It was pointless and needless and way below the show's usual graceful way at turning cliches on end.
With a couple of tweaks, the whole thing could have been gold. Now we're all wondering: have these heretofore great writers lost their way? This is not a question a writer should want fans to be pondering over a long summer break.
The finale was so well written and acted and rich with storylines, meshing everyone into new journeys.... BUT I was so blown away at the end! UGH!!!! I know it is only the second season & as a fan of getting Beckett & Castle together, the twist with Gina, had me screaming "Nooooooooooo". The hurt on Beckett's face ( which mirrored Castles' the past few weeks) and the dissapointment on the faces of the supporting cast ( watching thru the glass helplessly like us!) just was brilliant! I was & still are, this morning, emotionally spent! I wish it was September!!! It is gonna be a looong summer!
I think that it was awful when Castles ex walked in (such convenient timing). I didn't know the writers were afraid that hooking them up would leave them without a story... I guess I was too concerned with them getting together. If they do a thing where Beckett is pining over a happy Castle next season I will hate it. And it was not fun watching Castle in pain. I agree that they can't "depend on tension" but it was reaching a feverish pitch and they stopped it, and sometimes it's better to do something exactly on time then a bit too late.... I guess it's too much to ask for Kate to reveal her feelings in a last episode, but I wish that had happened.. but I am not thinking logistically about future episodes... I just like the show.. I think there is plenty to play off with them dating and him messing it up.. or her messing it up, ironically. Her saying that she wants it to be serious and then finding the complexity too much to happen and taking it less seriously than Castle, for example
