Castle Review: Hamptons Heat

at . Comments

Busted!! A weekend away for our favorite couple led to a murder and a secret leaking. "Murder, He Wrote” took Castle and Beckett to the Hamptons to find a dead body and to be outed as a couple. Time to talk Castle...

Breaking Rich. A wealthy weekender is found dead in Castle’s pool after being shot. Having been involved in a bank scandal, clues point to a former colleague that the victim had testified against. In a twist, the victim and his colleague had been setting up meth labs in different buildings around the city. 

Caskett Sighting

This show is usually on point with the twists and turns it throws out during the weekly case. This murder? Not so much. Having the head of the marina be the killer made sense, but in the last 30 seconds, it turned out to be a local deputy who didn’t like the wealthy weekenders. This ending didn’t make complete sense for the fact that the killer was someone we had seen on screen for maybe all of two minutes.

On the other hand, the case was fun and it got Castle and Beckett some what out as a couple...

Describe Her! Ryan helped out with the case by interviewing suspects back in the city. Luckily, one of them had had already spoken with Castle and Beckett. 

How much did you love Ryan’s reaction to the news that it was Kate out there with Castle? The actors on this show are impeccable with their facial reactions. 

So the secret is slowly coming out. Martha, Alexis and Ryan now know about the couple. Who is next? 

“We Are Caskett.” Not only was this quote so hilarious, especially since it came after a Brangelina jab, but it recognized all of the shippers out there. Since Season One, Caskett has been a couple us at TV Fanatic have rooted for, and now they are an official couple with an official name. LOVE IT!

After Thoughts:

  • Quick sightings of Lanie, Martha, and Alexis. Looks like the ladies are working their way back on our screens!
  • How ridiculous was Castle’s beach house? Kate Beckett is one lucky woman.
  • Ryan is such a good friend that he is going to keep the secret of Castle and Beckett to himself. 
  • A fear of getting this couple together now would be that the stories would suffer. Have to say, these two work as a couple so well, it doesn’t seem awkward at all.
What a fun episode! The series continues with its light hearted and enjoyable episodes. What did you think, TV Fanatics? Hit up the comments and let us know what you thought of Caskett’s weekend adventure. And don’t forget to check back for the official Castle Round Table later in the week. No new episode next Monday! Until then, Castle fans!

I personally think, that this year is the worse of Castle of all, I ever seen. I cannot believe that the writers are so out of touch. I use to love this program, but now, I find very boring.


Stana can cook me breakfast anytime she wants to.. *winks :)
I'd consider it worth the trade off if I had to get my stomach pumped :p


To Ravie: I see your point, but I like the romance overshadowing the crime--but that's my feminine point of view. Are you a guy? There are a lot of crime shows out there, but romance in this show softens the edges. Also, I like that the romance is sweet, rather than raunchy. But again--feminine point of view.


I'm so glad they figured out how to keep up the suspense even though Caskett(I don't like that name)is already a couple. Ryan will no doubt crack, but how soon? It was way too convenient for the case to--literally--stumble into Castle's backyard. I wanted to see them spend time together in that beautiful place. It's interesting to see Beckett step out of her shell when she's with him now. Castle is cute and funny, but Kate is really stunning. I just saw a rerun of the first episode and she hardly even looked pretty. I'd like to use her makeup artist (or Oprah's)!


@David -That's why she says he hasn't been paying attention. A nice little jab at viewers who might question her cooking. ;)


David - how right you are :) Now that you mention it she cooked him a SUPER have a very good memory :) Great episode. Season 5 has been amazing. Happy Mondays !!!


He knew she could cook;
When her place was blown up and she stayed overnight she cooked him breakfast.


QUOTE: CASTLE: " I didn't know you could cook?"
BECKETT: " You haven't been paying attention..."


That was the funniest episode of Castle. One of the best. I'm so glad the show is not tanking now that they've gotten together. It could have gone so wrong. :)


Ryan hit a home run with his interrogation,and yes he will keep the secret. But I think Lanie already knows.As soon as Espo figures it out,he will also not say anything. They will all be keeping the secret from each other! Really loved the evening shots of Castles Hampton home. They reminded me of Thomas Kinkade paintings. Its hard to believe that Stana and Nathan are not really in a relationship out side of the Castle show. Maybe its just wishful thinking!
