Castle Round Table: "The Limey"

at . Comments

Castle let a hot blonde drive his Ferrari on Monday night, while Beckett danced with a gorgeous British detective in "The Limey." Will Lanie's girl talk prompt Beckett to see the light and finally tell Castle how she feels... before it's too late?

Our Castle Round Table Team of Courtney Morrison, Jim Garner, Chandel Charles and Christine Orlando debate what's next for our favorite duo.


What was your favorite scene?
Courtney: Gotta go with the girl time scene between Kate and Lanie. It was good to see these two outside of work and have real life conversations. Plus, Lanie pushed the Castle issue and I loved it.

Jim: Has to be Castle covering his and Beckett's eyes and her leaning out to look anyway. Such great silliness.

Chandel: Kate and Lanie having a heart to heart. I loved seeing those two having some quality girl time. It's very easy to forget how close they are sometimes without it!

Christine: Finally some girl talk! I've been waiting for that all season. As much as I loved the earlier scene, I adored their scene in the morgue more  Lanie points out that every person lying in those drawers had plans and no one is guaranteed a tomorrow. Speaking of which, why hasn't ABC renewed this show yet for season five yet?!?

Castle RT - depreciated -

Did you miss Alexis or Martha?

Courtney: Can't say I did. I honestly didn't realize they weren't in the episode until this question. I wonder what that means. Okay, no I don't: they need better storylines!

Jim: Who? Just kidding. This episode followed Beckett, we watched Castle come and go from her point of view, so I didn't miss Martha or Alexis any more than I missed Castle when he was off camera.

Chandel: I always love seeing Alexis and Martha on the show, but I think this episode would have had too much going on to add them in. I know they'll be back, so I'm won't have to miss them too much!

Christine: Yes, especially Martha because she is Castle's sounding board. She's the main way we get into his head. But this episode was all about Kate's point of view so we had Kate and Lanie instead and that was far overdue.

Do you want to see more of Detective Inspector Colin Hunt?
Courtney: Absolutely! The man was hot, had an accent, and could wear a tux. It also didn't hurt that he was an impressive detective.

Jim: How much more of him can we see on network TV? Seriously, I really liked the character. Would be fun to see Beckett/Castle take a trip across the pond to his turf.

Chandel: I think he's hot and I love his accent. If Andrew Marlowe and friends can make it realistic, I would welcome him back!

Christine: Well, if we see any more of him they might have to move us to cable. Seriously though, he was handsome, gorgeous, nice and good at his job. As long as he's not a real wedge between Castle and Beckett it would be fun to see more.

Will Castle's blonde bombshell, Jacinda, be back?
Courtney: I think she will, but it doesn't really matter. We don't know Jacinda at all and it will only be another episode or two before she is forgotten about.

Jim: Sadly, Rick is doing the playboy version of drinking away his pain. He's hooking up with someone he can't make a real connection with so she can't lie to him and hurt him. Jacinda is a band-aid on a bullet wound and won't last. Castle will have to deal with his feelings of hurt/betrayal

Chandel: Over my dead body. Really, so sick of this stereotypical fallback girl always being a random blonde. Let's not do that anymore, okay?

Christine: I doubt it. Being a flight attendant makes her easy to write off but watching Castle fall back into his playboy ways to dull the pain has gotten old, fast.

Were you frustrated with Castle and Beckett or satisfied with their progress?
Courtney: In the larger sense of things, a little frustrated, although I understand that the two main characters cannot rush into a relationship too quickly. But it's not the first season anymore! I'm satisfied with the fact that the feelings have now been acknowledged and the two are acting as if it is real. I've said before, I'd be happy with just a hook up to hold us over until they get into a real relationship.

Jim: For the love of Christmas! Get the $&@&!?!$& on with it!! Last season ended with "I love you Kate" and at this rate this season's going to end with "me too? Maybe?" GAH!!!!

Chandel: I am frustrated at the pace and really wish they would engage each other on the issues that are clearly there. I continue to hold out hope that we're going to get closer and closer to some truth between these two by the end of the season.

Christine: I'm frustrated, but I've thought the pace has been unbelievably slow all season. That said, I can see the story arc playing out over these last three episodes and I am looking forward to seeing Adam Baldwin's guest appearance in "Headhunters."  All I can say is that the season finale better be one Hell of a payoff.

1. Favourite scene is Lanie telling it like it is. Smacking Kate with the truth. 2. Not really, but not because they aren't interesting. The episode didn't really need them, so they weren't missed. 3. Yes because he's freakin' hot. No because that would mean he's between Castle and Beckett, and I can't take that right now LOL 4. I must be the only one who thinks Castle didn't revert. The fact that she's blonde does not mean she's a bimbo and that he's a playboy again. She seemed smart enough to give Castle a clue to the case. And dating the same girl 4 times in three days is not "playboy" behaviour. Besides, he said he liked her and he just needs someone uncomplicated. But to answer the question - she won't last... 5. SUPER FRUSTRATED!! Not just by the pace, but by the decimation of their characters. Ugh!


Loved the Castle and Beckett eye covering scene.
I always miss Martha. Alexis needs a better storyline.
I personally want to see more of that fella but not on Castle.
No to the Bimbos it's a cheap plot line I hate it. If it continues I will discover me some hunky Hawaii 5 O.
Extremely Frustrated.


Best scene: The girl talk, we get so many great Ryan-Espo moments it's time the girls' relationship got a bit more screen time. Colin Hunt: Like the actor but he couldn't pull off the London accent. So funny in that he had it some moments and then it went all Aussie. Don't understand why they couldn't make him an Australian cop, but liked the character and would be happy to see him back (after a little work with an accent coach ;))


Favorite scene: Castle's plan to break into Nigel's residence ("Why's the brown man gotta be the hobo?"), and the entrance of Kate in her evening gown. Music kicked a**! Miss Alexis/Martha: No. This was a perspectives' show; it was Kate's turn, so make sense they were absent. Det. Insp. Hunt: He was competent, polite, and ruggedly handsome, but so was Demming and Josh. Jacinda: Maybe the most disposable character to ever appear on this show! Frustration level: Understanding this is a TV show, I get the stringing along for almost 4 seasons. However, we've reached saturation levels; beyond the season finale would be insulting.


Yes, I loved the morgue scene with Beckett and Lanie...girl time is always good every now and then to humanize our cast...the guys have had their this show and you better renew it..I have watched every episode...Love Nathan Fillion, he is a character..but I do love the whole every one of them....


I think the only way Kate's going to get the "I love you" to come out of her mouth is going to be something like: Castle announces he's leaving, she says "you can't leave", he turns to her and says "Why not Kate?" dramatic pause... "because I love you". Of course pump up this general scenario with appropriate filler lines to heighten the tension even more, etc. And I think it will be in front of everyone at the precinct maybe even Gates.


I loved the girl talk. I just wish beckett would just tell castle that she loves him too. We all know she does. Its really bad when lanie ( she works and see dead people all tje time. Doesnt really know whats going on at the 12) can tell that becketts in love with him. I think what castle did was ok. Wasnt the best thing but i understand. If somine did that to me id do the samething he did. And i understand what beckett is saying or getting at.


- I like the cute moments so Kate checking out the Scotsman package was fun. Agree about the girls though. Lanie tends to be underused sometimes and its hard to remember they're friends.
-yes because I love them but no because it flowed nicely without them.
-yes on both accounts.
- frustrated. But I get it...sort of.
