Castle > Castle Review: Handcuffed, Hot and Heavy! > Comments Page 2
Does anybody else think that they are making Beckett into Miss Permafrost this season rather than just using the tag for Capn Gates? I mean Castle taking the opportunity to stroke her back while searching and finding the needle stick puncture. Kate quickly shrugged him off - why? It is like the writers won't allow a bit of tenderness from Kate - yet that is what is missing THE TENDERNESS. I know they gave us crumbs in cops and robbers with Kate smiling and touching Castles lapel - but otherwise their seems to be a contrived distance between them. Beckett is sexy as - and I want to see the writers bring it on - and pronto lol!
Good. The tiger was unexpected.
Loved the episode and all the sexual tension between Castle and Beckett! And yeah, like others pointed out, it was probably her sons with some shooting darts from the back...
Old woman was too creepy!
@The Watcher: Beckett has a motorcycle, and therefore a helmet, but she bought it just out of high school, and therefore like many of activities Kate's 'fun' side (including, probably, her trip to where she learned Russian), it predates her mother's murder. Beckett back then was a risk-taker and from her asides we know she's known a lot about fun.
But that was then. Like she tells the shrink, after her mom's murder her life changed, making her this strong, principled and yet diminished version of who she is. I see Kate not only opening up to Castle, but coming back to herself.
Fantastic episode! Loved the tiger - that was totally unexpected! BUT - I wondered why they didn't just move the freezer to block the hole? That would have been easier than trying to tip that thing on it's edge! Plus, then they could have put all the chains back IN the thing, making it too heavy for the tiger to move. Interesting choice, but I suppose it made for more thrills...
Everyone keeps mentioning the motorcycle helmet, but Beckett's been riding a bike since very early on in the show, I think. If memory serves, it was something she got into from one of her old boyfriends... ditched the boyfriend, kept the bike. Always cool, but kept pretty low-key in the series.
Love the mention of Farscape, Rick, and couldn't agree more! I loved the opening sequence here where they were both waking up like they'd done that together a million times. Just more verification that they really ARE good together!
Cage Lady didn't needle them - she was the bait! Her sons likely did i.e. Beckett's back wound!
LOVED this eppy! Shame ABC lax on promo publicity as rated lowest this season!!!!!!
Love love love this show
This episode was so good, too good in a way. It made me sad to think that it won’t be on the air again until 2012. I think it sets up a number of issues.
For Beckett, the idea that she has, if she hasn’t really said so out loud, started to imagine her life post-wall, and that Castle’s in it. The motorcycle helmet was a subtle hint that she’s starting to live outside her prescribed zone already.
The setup for Ryan’s wedding to Jenny.
They will continue to explore Castle/Beckett issues by proxy through Lanie/Espo
What’s the holdup then? I think the issues raised in the ‘Rise’ season premiere episode will start to reemerge over the course of the back 12 episodes (just in time for sweeps). This thing with each of them having secrets from the other- Kate: she heard him tell her he loves her, Castle: his knowledge that any further investigation Kate’s mother’s murder/her attempted murder will mean death sentence- this will ultimately mean each of them
Loved the quick comments from Castle like "I didn't envision it being like this" when he was pulling off her shoe and also pulling up her shirt. He is darling and she is good in her role, but come on Kate...gain a little weight. You look like you have an eating disorder. The episode was full of surprises and was a little nail bitting when the tiger appeared. Who knew? I personally don't like the new chief. She acts like she is the only one that knows how to do anything. But the show is at the top of me and my husbands "Must Watch" show. And I mean show because there is rarely anything else on that is worth watching and includes Mon - Fri.
Loved it! Fun, scary, exciting, silly, well written. I adore these two together, and now that you can see that THEY CAN SEE that they are making their way to each other...... it gets better and better. And, ixnay on the one night stand idea; these two are for keeps, not just sex.
Sweet smile on Kate's face as she wakes up with Rick...and his soft voice to her........ yup, she knows how she feels, and how he feels, about them. That was yummy.
Esplainie are fun! And I'm glad to see the use the show makes of all its characters, love that they all get screen time to do more than laugh at Castle's jokes or support Beckett. Gives the show legs.
(Speaking of legs, I soo want to see them in the three-legged race at the police picnic!!)
Lots of Casketty moments; one of my faves is there on top of the freezer, at the end, before the guys get there---they're holding hands. Not just joined by someone else, but holding hands cause they feel safer together, better together.
1) Definitely noticed the helmet, too!
2) Agree with David on the potential to get stale...Lanie and Espo, too. However, DO like them together.
3) Agree with Carrie on the "sticking."
4) Iron Gates...this actress is playing a very likable character...more so as each episode passes...much better than the witch she was on 24!
Still have to say, loved the show...expect the unexpected...always fun!
Overall, LOVED this episode! For all the reasons mentioned and then some. Was I the only one who noticed during the opening scene when they are both laying there out if it, that Beckett's got her hand draped across Castle's chest, and was it my imagination or did the girl actually smile when she opened her eyes and saw him laying there across from her? Loved Castle's first reaction too, like waking up next the Beckett was something he's done before. Totally think Ryan and Esposito rocked it again, and I'm still not won over as far as Gates is concerned.
Can't wait til the show comes back from Winter hiatus.
Cute from start to finish. Kept me laughing and gasping at regular intervals. Even made my hubby perk up and he's lethargic with a cold. lol
Lanie and Espo's bickering is nothing more than a plot excuse to get Caskett talking about relationship hurdles. Otherwise, I could care less.
The Iron Lady was the high point for me on the subplots swirling around our stars in the outside world. Looks like she's every bit as protective of her cubs as a mother tiger. And I really liked seeing that! Bodes well for any trouble in the future.
The ending was what this hour was all about for me. Just enough to keep us panting to see their next time together all the way thru the holidays!
just keeps getting better and better roll on next year.
Thought this episode was very well written, the casting was very very good, the "creppy" old lady was good and fit the part very well. Esposito and Lanie where great going back and fouth at each other, and Castle and Beckett had some really great moments in this show....writers did a fantastic job keeping us intertain and laughing, Capt. Gates what can I say.... she is way to over the top, its like are you always mad at some body? she needs to lighten up and he happy once in a while.... like she has a chip on her shoulder every day. Other than that great show. Loved it!
Oh yeah the lustful glances I completely agree Jen,
As I've persistently said you can only go so far with looking at each other either you act on it or it goes stale.
We're in danger of things going stale now.
Yes, I caught the motorcycle helmet too! I immediately hit rewind just to be sure! I kind of wished Castle saw it and mentioned it -- very sexy for sure.
I thought for sure they would lock the tiger in the freezer...but what fun would that have been. As far as how the old lady stuck Beckett and Castle...she didn't...she was the bait and her sons caught them from behind.
Well they emptied the fridge to make it lighter but it was still an industrial fridge if anyone has tried to move a standard old household fridge then you'll see just how heavy that fridge was. Plot hole but agree don't really care.
This whole ep was about relationships with Lanie and Espo and Caskett to cite some examples.
As to lifting Kate up in both eps it's simply never occurred to anyone for Rick to bend down stick his head between her legs and let Kate straddle his shoulders? Maybe being a bit practical here but that seemed to be the most logical. I get the humor of Kate trying to climb up on Rick though..
The cuffs.. Well I know of at least five ways to get out of those cuffs and Kate was actually wearing the solution to picking the lock but as the point was for them to be cuffed together.. So let you google bra under-wire :)
I love how Stana adds to the brainwashing of the masses in delivering police public service announcements like "their police cuffs you can't pick the
Am I the only one that noticed at the end of the episode when Beckett is leaving she was carrying a motorcycle helmet?
Not a fan of Esposito with Lanie at all. I like him when he's more of a player/ladies man, and his scenes with Ryan are way more entertaining than the ones with her.
I would say that the crazy old lady didn't stick them....she had her sons do that from behind them while she distracted them. Yes, the freezer thing was the most ridiculous (next to neither of them needing to go to the bathroom at some point), but I agree - who cares? It was all in fun...and all the Caskett innuendo was great. Favorite dialogue was Castle/Beckett discussing how frustrating it is that Lanie and Espo want to be together but won't admit it. Now, I hope they plan to do commentary on this one for the season 4 DVD set!
ing without my Castle fix for a few weeks, I was very pleased to see it last night. I wish Castle and Beckett would just go ahead and get together! one nite stand, full hook-up,something more than lustful glances.it
really wish these 2 would just get it on already, all the sneaky little looks at each other are ticking me of lol
yeah I didn't mind it.. A lot of plot holes but all up>>
Great episode! I agree that it was a little far fetched (how did they stand the freezer on end if they couldn't even move it across the floor?) but that's okay, because all I could really focus on were the great Caskett moments! All the witty banter that was missing from the last episode was there. The moment when she climbs on top of him was hilarious, and the ending was great. It gave us all hope that they might end up "hitched" for real one day! ;)
