I am SO GLAD I found this thread so I can virtually rage about how Castle is always made out to be this pansy that has to beg for her love and affection, even when SHE'S the one that messed up. It's so freakin ridiculous, at this point I'm cheering so hard against a character I used to really respect.Also, does anyone else find it annoying that Lanie/Espo/Ryan all just support her wholeheartedly instead of being like "what are you doing, he's been amazing to you and you're being a b****.And even Alexis/his mom - if I was his mom or daughter is be furious with her and I'd be telling him to stop dealing with her bulls*** and man up (leave her).
I have watched and loved every season until now. For the first time, I am considering removing Castle from my DVR recording list. I am so disappointed with this story line. The reason I loved Castle was because the relation between Castle and Beckett was so sweet. I loved watching them solve crimes together as well as watching their relationship blossom. I am not interested in watching them have marital problems, there is enough of that on every other program. What's wrong with coming up with a story line that keeps them together? The writers need to be given their walking papers and hire some die hard fans to write new and exciting story lines that are fun and filled with twists and turns.
The Bishop-Timmy thing made me even more annoyed with Bishop. I was expecting this episode to have a lot of light comedy. When Bishop told McGee about the weekend getaway, there was no mention to him about it being a surprise. When McGee accidentally spilled the beans to Jake, how was he supposed to know? Then Bishop holds on to it like McGee did it on purpose? She came across like a bratty teenager.. It is increasingly difficult to like this character. I felt sorry for Tim. Also going in when she had no backup, was stupid. Where was Gibbs's correction? The only one we saw call her on it was Abby? This show is becoming sillier by the episode. Also, the Tony searching for his ancestors seemed inserted for no reason. It wasn't developed enough to be funny. Tony's comment about it looking like he would never have any children was telling. I had suspected that Zoe probably was not up for that, I could be wrong. Maybe she is past the time when that would have been possible. I'm now wondering if bringing back Jeanne is how TPTB are going to fix Tony's loneliness problem. TPTB like to bring back his old girl friends as if he can't find someone new. I was hoping it will be the actress whose name shall not be mentioned but there may be too much bad blood for that to ever happen. All in all, this episode felt to me like a patchwork quilt without much artistry holding the patches together. I would call it mediocre.

I'm excited about this series and especially about next week's episode.
Ugh. The series has barely gotten underway, and most series don't pull out of the gate as strong as they could be. They build up to that, which helps build their audience. Really hoping FOX doesn't cancel yet another sci-fi series...
To be honest, I find them trying to make Regina the "savior" sort of ridiculous. Regina may have done a lot for the town in the past, but that doesn't make her a "savior" -- a hero? Sure. But the role of "savior" isn't a job title. It's sort of an identity and it's one that Regina doesn't fit. She still blames Rumple for her all her bad choices, she still only has HER happy ending in mind...that's not a savior. Again, no problem with her having the hero title -- but a savior thinks of themselves last and puts others before themselves. Always. That's Emma. Not Regina. --Emma's whole purpose in this show is that she's the hope...the savior...the white knight who always does what has to be done -- you can't just flip it and decide to assign that role to someone else b/c they've done a few good deeds. Emma may be the dark one right now...but she's the savior too -- the entire reason she has the darkness inside of her in the first place is b/c of a selfless act of sacrifice. So I'm not buying the Regina as savior thing and I definitely think there is more to the story. At least I hope there is. I really do love Regina but...how would people like it if they gave the sassy evil queen thing to Emma and started calling her "the queen"? So as a huge Emma fan, all of this savior stuff being laid on thick with Regina is making me really uncomfortable. Otherwise, this season has been stellar -- so glad they're making the Captain Swan relationship a huge focus in Emma's story and I can't believe no one mentioned the scene with Emma & Snow when they were getting ready for the ball... that was beautiful & long overdue.
It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. I found it to be very slow. It was definitely a filler episode, loaded with hints and foreshadowing of future plots.And I so agree about McGee. The whining and pouting is getting to be too much. I'm starting to get a little tired of him.Looking forward to next week. Looks fun.
There is only one savior and that is Emma. She will be the one that saves herself and the town.
Regina has been "saving" the town numerous times already
