1. Favourite scene was the exchange of the brown coat. (There's no place I can be, since I found Serenity...) 2. I bet she didn't answer because she has no idea what she wants to do. 3. Umm...all of them? :-) 4. Definitely Ryan. He got a car AND he set Castle up. Floor seats will come and go. Ryan will be able to flaunt that to Castle for the rest of his life LOL. Watching this episode just reminded me of how good an actor Nathan Fillion is. Seeing him and Baldwin together...I couldn't help but think of Firefly, and of how different Richard Castle is from Malcolm Reynolds. Kudos to Fillion for being able to portray such radically different people.
I LOVED IT. Absolutely loved it. I would never be able to explain WHY I loved it to someone who has never seen the show; this was not an episode a new viewer would have liked, loved, or even understood. But darn it, it was GREAT. I fail to understand how we live in a universe where Jim Parsons gets nominated for acting awards and Danny Pudi + Donald Glover get snubbed. I watch BBT, Jim Parsons is great, but if you've ever seen him outside of the show, he isn't that far from Sheldon. Danny Pudi shows so much range - and really, what's funnier than Donald Glover's hysterics?? Wake up, universe!!
CSI Miami MUST be renewed. Television is nothing without Horatio's sunglasses.
Okay - all this episode made me do was miss Captain Malcolm Reynolds. I love Nathan, and I love Richard Castle, but Richard Castle is no Captain Reynolds. And it also made me miss John Casey from Chuck. I still mourn for those shows... That being said, the man they call Jayne...um, Slaughter...was compelling, and his interactions with Castle were gold. Baldwin and Fillion just work. It was a good reminder that the show is called CASTLE, not Caskett. Speaking of Caskett - seven months, and she was healing?!?! Nah, she was hiding. Get. a. move. on.
I loved this episode. I'm glad we got to see yet another dimension to Nick's abilities as a Grimm - I KNEW there had to be a big reason why the Wesen fear him so. Grimm blood can render them powerless, make them ordinary. WOW. The Grimm Team is fantastic! And I loved how worried Monroe was about his friend. I wonder what sort of explanation they're going to give Hank about their presence in the bedroom. Think Nick will come clean to him about his Grimmness? The only thing I didn't like about this episode was how neatly the Juliette/Nick thing was pushed aside. The woman just refused his proposal...and there's no awkwardness at all? Not even a little? Okay - so Renard wants the key. At least we have a goal now. But he also called Nick "valuable". Man, what is going through his handsome head?!?
@abedswanson - Read the review - she said he's from Parks and Rec. I think this will be one of those episodes that fans either love or hate. I personally loved it. This episode had some of the funniest and most memorable quotes of any episode: "I need help reacting to something", "Annie, subdue your guest", "do him like a crossword"...and the throwback to "opposite of Batman". I also love any opportunity Jeff and Shirley have to hang out. The two of them make the perfect friends; they truly understand each other and are okay with each other's quirks. I also love any opportunity to see a shirtless Joel McHale. Have mercy...
"Do him like a crossword." I'm DEFINITELY using that from now on. My other favourite line was from Abed: "Annie, subdue your guest!" And can someone PLEASE give Donald Glover an acting Emmy...please?? This episode was one of the most grounded ones that they've done, and I loved it. I thought it was funny, and I love the character exploration. I've always preferred the Jeff/Annie pairing; those two have way more chemistry between them than Jeff and Britta did. "Dean, why are you here?" Dean: "OUCH!!"
Fortunately for people like JJ, I tend to gloss over the contrary opinions of people who can't write proper English words and sentences to make their point. I tend to agree with JK. I think Renard is some sort of creature, but so in control of himself that Nick doesn't have a clue. Given that he has "royal" lineage, I'm going to take a guess that he's going to be some sort of lion creature. @KansasGuest - GREAT point on Juliette, I never thought of that angle. I'm convinced there's SOMETHING up with her, but that's a really good observation. I'm sure there's more to being a Grimm than we've seen. Nick is still learning, but there must be a reason (other than just being recognized) why their reputation strikes fear into everyone.
I preferred Tony Vincent to Cheesa, but based on the last two performances, Cheesa was a bit better. Sweet Dreams didn't do enough to show off his voice, I don't think. I CAN'T STAND Erin Martin - I'm all for quirky and different voices, but who could listen to a whole CD of that? Her pitch was all over the place. Mispronouncing words in a song does not make you a good singer. Ugh. I'm glad I don't have to hear her another week. Also good choice on Adam's part. It's too bad both Kim and Katrina were in the bottom - they were both strong singers. I'm not the biggest Tony Lucca fan - kinda wish he went home instead. And THANK YOU Adam for saying how awkward that lounge is. Geez.
I don't understand why the last 4 episodes aren't in a straight run. So many breaks!
