Castle > Castle Round Table: "Pandora" > Comments Page 2
Not that I think Castle and Turner should get together again. Jennifer Beals, who I absolutely admire for her work in The Chicago Code, deserves her own show, and if Season 4 Castle made one iota of sense the writers would realize a CIA officer having an affair of that sort would be a security risk.
Sorry, but why? Why does Castle need to do anything? He's made his feelings clear. He's told Beckett that he loves her, and has pushed for some kind of confirmation, only to be rebuffed. There's nothing Beckett has done or said that suggests to Castle that she returns his feelings. Castle doesn't need to do a damn thing. He doesn't owe Beckett anything.
And seriously, he's a grown man. He had a relationship with another woman a decade ago where there most certainly were feelings. The relationship may have ended on a less than ideal note, but it's apparent that some of those feelings still exist. Castle doesn't need to remain tethered to a woman with whom he's not in a relationship with for her sake. That ain't healthy.
Castle needs to settle some questions in Kate's mind,like what happened between Sophia and him. She needs to know she can trust him. Castle needs to shed a light to his life. I wonder if the second part doesn't let us know he's done with Sophia. Remembering Kate's one writer girl comment.
THe apartment blowing up, and Rick concern for Kate was my favorite so far with double episodes. I am still waiting for her to respond to Castle about his love for her, or bring up the way Rick rubbed the back of her hand with the dog episode "An Embarassment of Bitches." Also from that episode, Rick didn't even look twice at Hilarie Burton's role, which he normally does when a beatiful woman come into the mystery/precinct. Rick never even checked her out... don't think that Kate didn't notice that?
Maka - You're right that everyone is entitled to their opinion but you really seem to dislike the show. I'll admit I don't always love everything about it and it has its flaws but I still think it's a great show and I enjoy it. I don't understand watching a show that you seem to dislike so much.
Shelly, lets just say this. As somebody who watched the show from the first season, the state of the show as it stands is immensely disappointing.
But sure. If you want to completely dismiss the opinions of dissenters so you can ignore arguments that the show really might now be that good, go for it.
No on to my answers:
I can't imagine Rick Castle following a woman for a year & not sleeping with her but then again he's followed Beckett around for 3 years so who knows.
Beckett being bothered enough by Sophia to start asking questions was great. She needs to get answers from him if she's ever going to get over her insecurity about him getting bored & moving on if she sleeps with him.
Castle was cute when he got all bothered about Alexis interrupting his unit cohesion. Alexis & Lanie could make quite the duo which is probably what Castle is worried about.
Kate's apartment blowing up & Castle's frantic run to save her was the best ending of a part 1 but I didn't like the way they concluded it in part 2. I wanted more drama & they went for humor. I can't wait for Monday to see this cliffhanger's conclusion.
I’ll never understand posters like Maka who hate a show but watch just to bash it. I can't imagine wasting my time on a show I dislike so much.
I've never watched Castle expecting a tutorial on police procedure. I watch for the fun, great characters & wonderful chemistry. Enough of my rant.
Beckett is the worst Detective in a history of terrible television detectives. Seriously, that scene where she's walking around the second victim's house hurt my brain. I guess Castle naturally emits a stupidity inducing aura, that makes formerly competent detectives to spend more time on hair products and high heels and less time on actual police work. Lanie may very well take the cake for the worst ME in a history of TV MEs, as well. Gee, Lanie, you think it's totally normal for the unis to not have secured your crime scene before you get there? You are an idiot.
This episode was trash. Kind of like the last two parter.
This "linchpin" business is utter nonsense. There is no kind of "silver bullet"/"magic pill" which can affect social change, let alone geopolitical change. All this bluster about "THE END OF TEH WORLD OH NOES!!!11!!" is just hot air.
Beckett, you have no bloody business being jealous of your not-boyfriend's romantic or sexual history with another woman. What did you think he was before, a monk? You turned him down, so you can't say anything if somebody else happens to think a guy who looks like Nathan Fillion is actually quite a catch.
I'm guessing Castle screwed up something of Turner's way back when. Hence the whole whitewashing business. Of course, knowing Marlowe, it'd be something about LUUUUURRRRVVV, and I will puke.
When the car went over the pier I'm screaming at the TV "unbuckle your seat belts NOW" .... yes I watch too much Mythbusters too!
Oh you should have had this question in the roundtable:
''What do you think the Pandora linchpin is?''
;) Would have loved to hear what some theories the staff members had.
Awesome episode. I like Jim's theory towards Castle and Sophia's relationship. My favorite scene was when Castle made Capt. Gates, Ryan, and Espo mad with their secret info. I don't think Castle is too concerned about Alexis because she is a very mature teen. But he is worried about his 'unit cohesion' with Beckett lol. My favorite cliffhanger was last year's episode with the freezer. Also liked this ending/cliffhanger too. But as far as cliffhangers are concerned, how about the Season 3 finale? Can't wait until Monday!!
I think he will come clean to her about Sophia. I almost think Sophia ended up being "rebound girl" between Meredith and Gina.
Where Alexis is concerned Castle is "responsible dad" so I believe he really is concerned for her safety. Is he upset about his worlds colliding? Yes, but I don't think this is an ego trip for him. His line to Martha about "setting some boundaries around here" is telling but I think he deeply worries about her safety especially after Gage escaped and the body of victim 1 disappeared.
I really do not want Castle to have slept with the CIA agent. I feel it will push Becket away.
Exploding apartment was my favorite cliffy.
Go Alexis. Go girl.
-I agree that they probably slept together but I don't think it was any great love story. I'm hoping we get to here Castle's version of it.
-I liked the scene where they were locked in the trunk. Everything was fine until Beckett realized Sophia was coming. Then she kicked it into gear.
-Castle was funny about that. Not considered about the crime or the gore but about Alexis finding out too much about his personal life. Still he'd never tell her that.
-I loved the freezer scene but hated the aftermath. It would have been so much better if Josh had gone to Haiti.
I think Castle and Sophia may have had a friends with benefits thing honestly I'm trying to imagine Castle dating anyone in between Meredith and Gina but I can't since we don't know when he divorced Meredith and got together with Gina.
So far Tick Tick Tick and boom is still my favorite 2 parter. I didn't really care for last seasons 2 parter and this seasons 2 parter is better than last seasons.
