Castle > Castle Review: Sinning By Silence > Comments Page 2
I enjoyed this episode, but I do have to admit I, too, am tired of the contrivances to keep Kate and Rick apart...they obviously love each other, and I think the writers could easily make it work when they get together and have a spicy relationship full of banter and fun while they catch criminals together. Drawing it out too long just pisses off the fans, and becomes a very thin plot device that doesn't hold water.
Here is hoping that by the end of the season they will admit that they love each other and start to date and develop their relationship. I also think it is great that Alexis is getting some real-world experience with Lanie, and I still think Martha is a very relevant member of the cast.
I for one am really getting twisted over this whole show. I used to love the intelligent witty banter between the characters, especially Castle. I miss that--now all we get are a few one-liners-which are still delivered suprurbly by Nathen. But come on! I wish they would stop treating the viewers like we are dim-witten backwoods fools. They are susposed to be surrounded by intelligent people--yet NO ONE picks up on potential emotional moments and stops and thinks "maybe I should wait--this talk looks inportant"? No lets just interrupt time and time agian.
My guess-o-meter says: 1)Castle will rock bimbo(s). If the writers are smart it won't last more than an episode. 2) Castle will slightly remove himself and Beckett will start going back to Momma's case, and Castle will get reminded to save her, or do it on his own. Whether this show becomes boring or too drawn out will depend on how long they drag this out.Whatever happened to the banter? The writing doesn't seem as good as it used to...
And yes, like a few others here, I'm this close to dropping the show altogether. While I'm a big fan of the actors in the principal cast, the story line is really starting to become an insult to the viewers' intelligence. Too bad because it used to appointment viewing for me.
This will-they-or-won't-they is really getting old. If this were real life one or the both of them would have decided it's not worth the wait and moved on. Sheesh.
Hurts me to see Castle hurt with no response from Kate. Not a situation I want to watch much longer unless Kate hurries up and reciprocates.
Gotta say I was disappointed about a couple aspects of this episode. First was how the investigation of the crime was portrayed. How does Gates receive this cell-phone scanning info from Homeland Security, and nobody at Homeland Security was yet able to figure out what Castle figured out in 1 minute? Implausible.
And Castle decides to share his heart with Beckett right there in the police station? Of course, here comes a convenient interruption to prolong the tension between them. It wreaked of cliche plot device.
At the Paley Fest, Andrew Marlowe said the relationship between Castle and Beckett would evolve in a way that felt real and true to the characters. It's losing that element -- more and more feeling like standard-issue TV romantic tension. Too many convenient obstacles arise to keep them apart.
Awful. The captain is unwatchable. It's preposterous that his high school daughter is working there in a serious capacity, let alone finding clues. The will they or won't they has now been played out so long I don't care. Now that alexis is at the precinct all the time, they don't know what to do with his mother and she's become even more of a caricature. A shame. I'm now fast forwarding as much as watching and may soon just give up.
this was a good episode. the case was interesting & had a lot of twists & turns. all in all a good one...but the case wasn't what we all wanted to see. it was how rick dealt with the fact that kate knew of his feeling for her. he was pissed & rightfully so. i can't wait for next week!
Gah. Didn't have time to go to Hulu today. I'm probably just gonna buy this episode on iTunes to watch. Can't... Wait.
yep I've been in the exact same place Rick has been and I disappeared for 3 days consider what to do about the matter because the sparks would have flown if I'd confronted her about it right away.
I was, putting it mildly, completely pissed off. I always knew about her true feelings but I never had the hard evidence until a 10 second slip in a overheard conversation. It's those little slips that will get ya. LOL
We worked it out :)
So yeah I get it.
Everyone brings up moonlighting but there's tons of couples on TV that haven't destroyed their ratings.
In any case I would not be holding my breath for them to be together. Just yet.
And yes - a leading crime-fighting couple can TOTALLY work. Hart to Hart, Chuck, Lois & Clark...Moonlighting didn't work because Willis and Shepherd hated each other...
As someone who has been exactly where Castle is (or where he thinks he is, anyway), his reaction is spot on. Walking that line between anger, hurt, shame and feeling like the biggest fool on earth, but still trying to function. Not wanting to be petulant and lash out but not being able to stop yourself from getting one or two digs in...I totally get it.
He'll eventually blow -it's not like Castle to keep quiet. But for now it's too fresh for him.
And as for Castle being a hypocrite - bull. Beckett isn't dealing with Castle because she's emotionally stunted. Castle's keeping the secret to save her life - he's watched her die once, can't blame him for not wanting to go through that again. The two secrets aren't even comparable.
I'm completely on Castle's side here LOL
Based on Andrew Marlowe's tease at PaleyFest earlier this month, Stana Katic's comments, and the promise of this episode, I expect that, by the end of this season, Castle and Beckett WILL know how each other feels. Does that mean they'll get together? One hopes. People tend to compare this show to "Moonlighting" -- and I'm reading "McMillan" and Hart to Hart" -- but I see this show more closely resembling "Remington Steele" (think about it). Both knew early on that there was a spark between them, but didn't really act on it. So, I know that formula of the show being relevant AFTER they finally get together can work. All I know is, if they leave this hanging after the May 7 ep? Houston, we have a problem...
I like this season, but have to agree with Keith Vlasak comments...
Interesting but not unexpected, now would be the time to bring in a new love interest for Castle. I always said that they would milk the whole Caskett thing until it bleeds but now it's just getting boring.
Alexis needs to be working in the morgue for some harshness of reality in life.
There's a huge difference in someone protecting a person from harm, saving her life and someone that's so emotionally closed off they can't admit to hearing "I love you".
Ricks pissed and I can't blame him. He'll prolly start finding reasons not to be around her now.
Oh the interruption thing? REALLY getting OLD!! As is the Sir thing.
I agree, you can only tease so long. It can be done, and like other storys, I rememeber McMillan and Wife, and Hart to Hart.. they were popular and highly watched. Loved the episode, and am looking forward to seeing what becomes. ANy one have ideas where this is headed?
I was thinking about it, and wonder if the distance between Castle and Beckett causes her to start over on her mothers death, and "the powers" that want to keep her away, kidnap Alexis, in exchange for Castle to hand over Kate. Cliff hanger, as Rick hugs Alexis, Kate whispers to Rick, she loves him!
I'm with Missa, watch The Thin Man. It CAN be done. These two are a great team and I think will be a great romantic couple as well...but you can only tease so long.
I love this show -- but was looking at an episode guide online and thinking that it has evolved. It's not at all the same show I started watching with episode 1. Remember the poker games? It seemed Castle was part of an old-boy network a lot more than now where the only time he's seen away from Beckett is with his mother and daughter. I guess, though, all shows change -- and the good ones, like Castle, change in ways we can continue to love and enjoy!
@andrea and those unfamiliar - comments are limited to 1000 characters. And I didn't figure out what was happening to my comments -- somebody, like this comment, said.
I think both Rick and Kate are acting true to their natures. Castle is an injured little boy and retaliates in immature ways. Beckett is methodical, her one mistake is using her remembering to work an interrogation (if you are keeping a secret, keep it to yourself at all times). She is going to be hurt by Castle's playing around and tell herself it proves she was right in keeping quiet without ever realizing she was the one to set him off. It is going to take some deep conversations with the rest of the team and then maybe Laini and Espo letting caskett know what idiots they have been. Stop the teasing and let the friendships (Kate and Laini, Rick and the boys) take front so when the heart to hearts come out they feel real.
Remember "The Thin Man"? Kate and Castle CAN be together and still have a great show. Maybe have them keep it a secret from everyone else for awhile until everyone figures it out anyway. I'm sure the writers can keep the banter between them great, they are after all fantastic writers. Come on writers watch "The Thin Man" series over the weekend and get creative with it.
I thought was Castle's reaction was exactly right for his character. Of course, he's hurt. Who wouldn't be? He feels stupid and Castle (while a huge hoot) has never exactly been a beacon of maturity. So he makes little snide comments and will eventually flaunt bimbos in front of Beckett, partly to hurt her and to convince himself he's over her. Those two just need to grow up, admit they have feeling for another and agree keeping secrets from each other (even those with the best intentions) rarely turns out well.
I meant what if Castle- "he" weren't around at the precinct anymore. Ran out of space. Rumors is that Michael Dorn is going to appear near the end again as her shrink. Yay... he's cool. Maybe they need to clue the audience in on why Kate is so afraid of getting hurt or maybe they need to revisit Beckett re-reading her old partners' note agian, where Mike Royce told her to take a chance with Rick Castle? Was she falling for Royce and he broke it off with her? SO much to tell.. so much to write..
Castle will get shot in the season finale and Beckett will say: Rick, I love you.
