Good episode but some huge mistakes. Can anyone tell me how Johanna Beckett was given the tape recording that has Senator Bracken talking about how he murdered Johanna Beckett? It was Johanna Beckett who hid the tape in the elephants, yet the contents of the recording discuss HER murder. Seems like a mountainous and glaring mistake to me. Hmmmm.
Pete, thanks for the hello. The last two episodes are titled "Veritas" which means truth, and "For Better or For Worse" for the finale. Just these titles create an angst ridden atmosphere. I think AM will continue down the trodden path that he has taken for nearly every finale, meaning angst instead of satisfaction.
Nottrampis, thank you for the welcome back. I will try to get to your blog. Remember my hangup about watching S6? Well, I have remained true to my word about it. I have only watched comments about each episode here. Say hello to Captain Cook!
Hobobear, now now, calm yourself. Sure, Marlowe is a terrific writer, some of the time. He is not God, so he is not terrific all of the time. No one here will argue that Castle is a great show, which is why we are writing on this blog! But again, it has it's ups and downs. Marlowe is notorious for creating tremendous angst around finales. Sometimes we are happy (S4 Always), but usually we are sad or upset (S1, S2, S3, S5). Why would they suddenly introduce a good looking man who has a "complicated past" with Beckett in the finale? I doubt it is to congratulate her on the upcoming marriage! Much more likely that he is there to shake Beckett up a bit and make her question her commitment to Castle! This would likely postpone the wedding until S7 and end S6 with Marlowe's typical angst. And Hobobear, if you enjoy angst, good for you. But you cannot expect everyone to feel the same way as you do. I do not enjoy angst, especially when I have to wait for 3 months to see how it will be resolved, even if it gets resolved at all. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it!!!!!!!!!
I'm practically positive that they will screw up the finale. They announced a guest star named Eddie McClintock who just happens to have a complicated past with Beckett. He will probably show up on the scene and end up giving Beckett more doubts about marrying Castle, so the wedding will get postponed to next season. After all, Marlowe rarely gives the fans what they want the most!
Hi Captain Cook. Thanks for inquiring if I am still alive. Well, I'm not 6 feet under yet. I still read all of the comments on this site. Unfortunately, I have still had no desire to watch season 6 and I must admit that I have not watched a single episode and I quit looking at previews. I just still feel ripped off by Marlowe. All of the reviews complain about the lack of physical contact and complete lack of kissing between Castle and Beckett. I understand that many people feel that the looks they share, etc., are enough, but I'm, not one of them. Marlowe misrepresented the season, probably to get people to watch it, by calling it "romantic." I'm sorry, but in a show like this, you have no right to call the season "romantic" when your two leads don't even kiss. I mean Castle has had more kisses (not necessarily with Beckett) in Season 3 and Season 4, when he was not with Beckett, than in a season where he is engaged to the woman!!! Come on now, this is a rip off. I may get over my disappointment some day but I haven't yet, so I will continue to refrain from watching until reviews convince me that they have started to SHOW romance between Castle and Beckett.
I have been following all of the reviews of the "regulars" on this site and it has been wholly depressing. I have still not watched a single episode and I am kind of glad. When I hear that Marlowe's "romantic" season has gone six episodes with not one single kiss, I am sad for the show. Now we have this crazy long hiatus, mixed up show schedules, etc. I have a strong suspicion that there must be something up between Fillion and Katic. The kisses they have had have been lacking in any passion whatsoever. Although they continue to fake the onscreen chemistry fairly well, they just can't seem to fake the passion. I think they are good at pretending to like each other in public for obvious show ratings reasons, but I doubt they like each other at all. At past interviews over the first 4 years of the show, they used to sit side by side. Now, they always sit pretty far apart and they rarely address each other directly. But even if this is not a problem, there is definitely something up. Marlowe's comments have been all over the place, absurd, and don't seem to even apply to this show! It is just depressing that a show that so great for the first 4.5 years has been reduced to a pitiful, moderately rated procedural, with a romance between the leads that viewers only get to imagine off screen. We get nothing on screen. So sad. Well, I will keep checking your reviews in hopes that things improve and maybe I can watch an episode or two. But I won't hold my breath.
Sorry Jase, but Kate didn't tell Castle that she loved him until 5x22 Still. Castle told Kate that he loved her in 4x23 Always, nearly a year earlier. Castle is a notorious player, really? As for a posh life, not until after his first big book hit, which he EARNED!!! He lived a hard poor childhood. Now Beckett had a posh childhood and has never wanted for money her whole life. I'm not sure we are watching the same Castle if you think he is controlling and taking her for granted. Name one instance in which Castle has been controlling to Beckett. I can name hundreds of instances when she has been controlling of him. About being taken for granted, Beckett sure takes Castle's help at the precinct for granted. What if he decided he didn't want to do it anymore? Sure, Beckett gave Castle a drawer. Castle gave Beckett $100,000 to try to catch her mom's killer in Sucker Punch. He set up a charity event to help fund a scholarship that he set up in Johanna Beckett's name. He is practically solely responsible for helping Beckett find her mother's killer. He saved her life in 2x18 Boom, then let her stay with him at the loft until she found a new place. He upgraded her to first class on the trip to LA and let her stay in his hotel room for free, where he helped her to find Royce's killer in 3x22 To Live and Die in LA. He agreed to live in DC with her and got them an apt together before she got fired.... Geez, I could go on and on with things Castle has done for her. But the biggest one, he has worked faithfully to help her solve murders for the last 5+ years now, without fail, for FREE!!!! What big important things has Beckett done for Castle in the last 5 years? List them please.
Ukno1sf, where did you hear this rumor? I would like to read about it. I would understand completely. He has been trashed so many times, in so many different ways, that I wouldn't be surprised if he refuses to do S7, if there is one, even if he is under contract, possibly calling it health issues from his back or such.
Sorry grumpy old man, I must disagree with your disagreement:) Also, I did watch a clip of the whole scene. I must also argue that she seems to want the room to be theirs, yet she has not relinquished her apartment because she still wants her own place to run off to when there is strife in the air. Bottom line though, it was his room first, and if she wants it changed, she should have ideas to make it theirs before she comes out and just tells him she doesn't like it. Did she ask about the sentimental value before she asked to move it? Of course not. It would have been so much more realistic if she were the one to come up with the seashell idea, but I doubt she is capable of it. I think you have fallen for the fact that she is being nice again most of the time, but I'm afraid it will come back and bite you in the arse my friend.
