Castle > Castle Review: The Dark Side of Rick > Comments Page 3
What a great episode. Rick Castle showed his true, loving, terrified fatherly side in this story. I adore this show and cannot wait for next Monday to find out, what, how and why.
For god's sake, his name is RICK!
Please let her call him by his name especially at probably the most e?tional moment of his life. This last name thing is driving me nuts.
I loved this episode. The entire cast was great as usual but Nathan Fillion outdid himself. That scene with the wounded kidnapper? Wow, just,wow!What this guy can do with just his eyes other actors can't manage with their entire body.
I did also wonder if this kidnapping is really about the Egyptian girl despite the 2nd set of kidnappers speaking arabic, it seems quite odd that of all the places where they could be taken, they would end up in Paris. Isn't that where Alexis's mother was headed a short while ago? I think I recall that at some point it was understood that this was where she lived. Ditzy women like her often attract the wrong kind of men or see things they shouldn't so I wouldn't be surprised if this wasn't about revenge for something in Egypt or on Castle's side.
The whole beating thing was not credible, they've made him too much of a clown to be believable like that, now Javi, I could see him getting the name, the address and next's weeks lotto numbers, but Castle? Not so much.
Alexis is a cutie pie, she's showing that she's really smart, they don't give her much air time and she may be ready to bolt the show. That might be interesting, Castle never getting over the death of his daughter, and that would give becket a chance to be the one telling him to learn to live and love with it, you know because of her mother. Nothing makes a man more interesting than when he is tortured, I'm just sayin'
I´ll just say: wow! What a fantastic episode! Great acting from all, superb in Nathan Fillion case! And for me the real target was Alexis, her friend was the one at the wrong place at the wrong time, but I don´t have a clue to why (that´s how good the episode was)...
For me, easely, 5 stars!
Did anyone else see Gates deliberately not noticing Beckett and Castle holding hands?
And am I the only one who thinks that Alexis' kidnapping wasn't an accident? That she was just as much the target as her friend?
I agree, it would be cheesy to have the Father save the day. I hope they are better writers than that, it would be way too convenient. And also rob Rick of agency, to have a magical savior swoop in. But then I thought they were better than to be torture-apologists by having Rick get the address out of the guy by torturing him (and all the cops standing by assenting). That was cheesy too. And not necessary; Fillion really is impressive in this episode anyway. I'd like to have seen a bit more of Martha, as the grandmother she'd be freaking too.
This episode was amazing. I agree with the reviewer - the scene on the phone where Castle tells Beckett not to promise that she will be OK if she can't guarantee it was extremely powerful. And Nathan Fillion's expressions are always what sell me - he is one of the best at conveying emotions with his eyes. I have a daughter and I can't imagine that scenario and I don't ever want to.
What worries me a little is the part 2. I like the idea of wealthy and dangerous Castle going off on his own to find Alexis because he can. I am a little apprehensive about the introduction of his father and the possible role he will play based on the preview. I think it would be a great disservice to have his hereto unknown father come in and save the day, but I will wait until next week and hope to be pleasantly surprised.
Sweet Jesus! please do not let Alexis die! I can't take it, Castle has me crying soo hard already! no...........
