Loved it. REALLY loved it. Loved the beginning. Loved his inability to stay out of the way. Loved how she was conflicted about him not being a part of the investigation and was reluctant to keep him out of loop once he crashed it. Only didn't love Pi, but he's there to to push buttons and doing a good job of it. Loved Ryan and Espo. Can't wait for next week. We know he won't die, so there's that....
I loved it! It was so wonderful to see people we grew up with in the 70s. Tim Conway is/was an absolute master of ad libbing. I don't know how much of his courtroom quote that you include was scripted, but I can truly imagine him adding in the whole bit about the cries for help petering out. I had to rewind and watch it a few times. I understand it didn't move any of the main characters stories, although one might argue there isn't much to move for the most part. I loved the homage to these grand actors/actresses. I wish more shows would show them the love and respect that Major Crimes did tonight. After all, without them, TV would not be what it is today.
@gardono Wow, I sure didn't have that takeaway from "Limey". The guy was on his way to the airport and had time for a quick drink. She was feeling lonely and blue over how things were(n't) going with Rick and called to take him up on the drink invite. I never in a million years assumed she'd slept with the guy and frankly would be shocked if she had. Not that he wasn't gorgeous, but sometimes a drink is just a drink!
I thought this was a great episode. Shawn is reigned in a little bit from total crazy detective as he doesn't want to completely drive Jules away.
One thing, Woody is no spring chicken. Are they still cougars if the guy inviting them is their age or older? I agree with another poster: a little Woody goes a long way. More is not better.
Not my favorite ep. They seem to not communicate in ways that real life would demand, but that's TV for you. However, Still (which I've already watched) more than makes up for this one. I think it works better in this order to be honest. You guys are going to LOVE this next ep, but that's all I'll say about it.
I just watched this episode (thanks to links provided by other users on the Castle FB page) and all I can say is WOW. I didn't think I'd like it as I usually don't appreciate episodes that are flash back heavy. However, this episode was completely awesome. I even cried at the end. Marvelous, you're going to LOVE it.
Loved this. I was clueless about what was happening until they burst into the apartment and the lights were off.
Loved, in no particular order:
-Andrew Marlowe and Terri Edda being in the episode a la Hitchcock.
-The Charlie's Angels pose the boys struck. I laughed out loud.
-How intimate in terms of daily lives Rick and Kate seemed. Lot's more public affection than we've ever seen.
-The shout outs to 100 on the opening credits and at the end when Rick asked Kate how many murders they've solved together
-How Martha refers to Kate as Katherine, reminiscent of her calling Rick "Richard". It seems as though she treats her like a daughter.
Can't think of more now. Going to have to watch this many more times. Huge brava for entire cast and crew. I love this show and they should be proud of the work they put into it.
cont'd from below:
I think he figured if anyone got in a head shot and killed him, he at this point preferred to be dead vs. not able to kill as he wanted to. It was an all or nothing gambit and I'm also sure given the supreme self confidence most serial killers have in their own superiority over everyone else, he was sure no one would get in a headshot. So, in the end it worked out for him.
You're right that it seems to be way too over the top in terms of Tyson planning the bridge event. It bothered me a bit, but I've come to some resolution by considering how much Tyson wanted to fake his death and how much planning and preparation everything goes into his moves. First, there is no way he would know Castle would escape custody, so I'll bet he was prepared to kill him in the Tombs like he told him he would. But he had a back up plan knowing Castle does have friends in high places and the resources that few of us do have. He knew there was a possibility he wouldn't be transferred there. If Rick had been killed there, no one would be the wiser to 3XKs involvement. If, as happened, Rick escaped that trap, Tyson set up contingency plans that would help him to his goal of "dying" and being able to start over. I'm certain he had on a vest. I think he figured if anyone got in a head shot and killed him, he at this point preferred to be dead vs. not able to kill as he wanted to. It was an all or nothing gambit and I'm also sure given the supreme self confidence most serial killers have in their own superiority over everyone else, he was sure no one would get in a headshot.
