I loved this episode; I missed a bit of it because I was harkening back mentally to the Easter party at a friend's house, where the after-feast entertainment was Weekend At Bernie's. And then I was trying to figure out in what clever way Barney would make that work for himself to get laid, pretending to be dead.
I imagine that like the Five Hundred Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, there are many more copies of the Playbook, which will come to light as they are needed ...
@RobinK The kidnappers got the ransom for her from her aunt, and they turned her over, by the bridge in Paris.
@ Dan W Shooting at a moving object in the dark is not as easy as they make it appear on screen. The child was in the car; it was not safe to shoot in the direction of the car. Tires are small.
I did not watch the show. Again. However, I would go back in time to the week before I started college, and have a chat with myself. Good question.
Birimbau was large, very pretty, and apparently a sexual god. I would take Hodgins over him any day. Hodgins is funny, bright, endlessly thinking, and he worships the ground Angela walks on. He would die for her. And those blue eyes .... She is an idiot, and I never really thought so before.
And I enjoyed the twist at the end of the kidnapping. I truly did not see that one coming. I love it when they can surprise me.
Due to spoilers, I knew James Brolin would be portraying his father, and that he was a spy. The Russian tie-in, though, made it quite obvious why Castle's previous muse, the Russian female mole in the CIA, knew who his father was. She would have learned from the other Russian spies. Sweet callback to an earlier year.
In one of the earlier questions, TV Fanatic asked which was our favorite two-parter, and I didn't answer, because I was thinking about it. Until tonight, I would have said, "Tick, Tick, Boom". But now, I would say this one is. It was right up there as some of the best writing this team has done.
The acting was also superb. I am a long-time fan of Christopher Heyerdahl, yet another massively talented Canadian actor. This is the first time I have ever seen the 6'4" actor look short; that's what he gets for doing scenes with Nathan Fillion!
The phone message on that phone number is adorable. Of course, so is Harold.
Nice little Mission: Impossible-style ending, there. (Good to see Bear, too.) I don't mind that the focus was not entirely on Reese and Harold. It was fascinating to see the side of the machine for which it was actually designed, in action.
Root is becoming quite the continuing character, too. The only other shows in which I have seen Amy Acker were both Joss Whedon productions, Angel and Dollhouse. She does a really nice job at batsh*t crazy. I don't expect she will win, but it is nice to see her try ...
And I am REALLY glad to see Curtis again!
I read somewhere that Ms. Delaney agrees that the clothes have been ridiculous, and they will be more sensible this year. But no matter how sexy those shoes are, they are still idiotic.
I liked Peter, up until he took up with that slutty paramedic, or whatever she was. He got stupid after that. I have been pleased to see the actor has moved on again; I saw him twice lately in shows I watch. Death was a fitting end for that character. But I am going to seriously miss the two cops we had before. I don't like these two very much.
Yes, I was surprised at the vicious treatment of Lacey. It's good she has an insulin pump; otherwise, she would die in captivity fairly fast.
No, I wouldn't vote for a President Blye. But I would vote for a woman for president. In fact, I have.
I really liked Deeks winning that second Rock Paper Scissors. I like Deeks and Hetty best on the show.
No, not too interested in Sam's wife and Sidorov. But I would love to see his daughter awake and active sometime. She has to be cute, with two such gorgeous parents. And she should be smart and lively, as the apple of their eyes, and the child of two such intelligent parents.
