I just now got to watch the episode since it is finally on Hulu. I agree, this episode was a little underwhelming and we definitely need more Adam Copeland.
Emma killed it on "Getting Married Today." I loved the actor who plays Brody on Terra Nova but I really don't see the appeal of Brody other than his looks. Finn was great and it was nice seeing him pursue her again. I was wondering if they would bring the Ryder/Marley thing back up. I'm okay with Jake and Marley, although I'm not a big Jake fan. I've watched the performance of last week's "This is the New Year" a few times and love the little Ryder/Tina moment in it. Tina has had a big personality change, and while that can be contributed to her new confidence thanks to Glee club, I'm ready for her to back down a bit. Her, Blaine, and Kurt were adorable.
Sherlock testing Joan was great. He was genuinely worried for her safety and showed it in his way. LOVED when she knocked his locks over and his face afterward. She definitely challenges him and doesn't just give in to all of his whims.
I'm glad they didn't kill Dawson's brother. I was really afraid they were going to. Kelly with the baby (does the kid have a name yet?) is adorable, but I'm still not loving Clarice/Shay. Did they seriously think Daniel wouldn't want to be in his child's life, that they could just shut him out? And as for Casey's mom...he asked a perfectly reasonable question and she freaked out on him. I'm glad he told her to find somewhere else to live. She may have killed her husband to protect Casey, but it wasn't self-defense. And what about her daughter? She doesn't seem to even care about her.
No mention of Gina Torres? Ignoring the fact that she and Nathan Fillion reunited 10 years after Firefly, she still deserves a mention for her wonderful turn as Penelope. She is great at playing strong women like Zoe on Firefly, Jessica on Suits, and Penelope on this episode of Castle. I didn't need a Firefly joke or gag but a little more interaction between the two of them would have been great.
This episode....while interesting was kind of eh. I don't blame Booth for getting upset at the beginning of the episode. Brennan has come a long way but she still has a way of shooting down people's ideas/plans/wants based solely on scientific evidence.
My roommate and I though Gold was more freaked out about the loss of his magic than everything else. Just like Regina it's his crutch. He can't use it and it freaks him out. He's in a strange world now, not Henry and Emma. Henry was adorab;e with his cinnabuns. I've never been the biggest Rumple/Belle fan but I really hope Ethan Embry's character (Greg?) doesn't corrupt her. And I'm kind of glad Jack got what was coming to her. Girl needed to cover up and bit more.
Dreamrose, I agree about the accent! There's just something about a Scottish accent. But I did spend quite a few minutes trying to place the actor who played Rhys. IMDB to the rescue, he was Jonathan in The Mummy and he was in Sliding Doors.
The ending scene was definitely the high light of the episode for me. Sherlock certainly has grown a lot. I don't think he is too overly attached to Watson like one commenter suggested, he could most certainly do the job on his own, but he is definitely better with her.
I have to disagree, I always look forward to seeing what is going on with Scarlett and Gunnar. I'm glad they'regettibg mixed into the main plot. I loved the kiss between Rayna and Deacon! And finally Teddy asked for a divorce.
Oh and I agree with what you said about the bubblegum music, but can we amend that to teenagers and girls in their early 20's?
I agree with what most are saying about the lack of Castle. The show has become very Beckett focused and Castle is just sort of there sometimes. He usually has some sort of insight into the case but that hasn't really been so lately. And I miss his poker games with his fellow writers! Those were some of the best scenes. I did miss Alexis and Martha but agree it was better of them not to force the two into the episode where they didn't really belong. Plus they did still mention Alexis so that was good. And I'm glad I'm not the only one who loved seeing the return of the Writer vest!
