I loved Clear and Present Danger, but most of the episodes I either disliked or was lukewarm about. I hated 6.23. That would have been a beautiful wedding. Instead we got a crappy wedding in front of the worst green screen sunset ever. Kate's dad never said a word like 'you're beautiful', 'your mom would have been so proud'. They forgot to invite their precinct family. Their vows were good but only because Stana and Nathan really sold them. The honeymoon was the worst. I didn't understand them dressing Stana as some bizarre slut in her black leather corsetted outfit while they dressed Nathan like Hoss Cartwright. Obviously they love the Beckett character and care little for the Castle character. I'm glad they are finally concentrating on the Castle character, but hate the ridiculous mythology they came up with. I was really tired of the Beckett show, however I want the Castle back that I fell in love with in Seasons 1 & 2. Now they portray him as childish, unromantic, clueless about women. The show has really gone downhill.
I disagree that they should have won best couple. Now that they are engaged, there is almost no couple-like interaction between them. Someone tuning in for the first time would never know they were even a couple or if they caught them in a bedroom scene they would think they had been together for 20 years because there is certainly no spark between them.
I totally agree with the analysis. I can't believe Alicia Logano wasn't nominated for an Emmy. Although Fillion was great in that episode, her portrayal of an unstable hostage taker is what really made that episode the best one of the year. Overall, I've really enjoyed this season, but the relationship is flat. Whenever Castle and Beckett are together,the writers go for some ridiculous laugh instead of giving us some quality time between them. For instance, having Kate being afraid of a lion picture and making a big issue out of it and having their bedroom turn into Grand Central station and the worst gag ever - having Kate dress up as Pochahantas. Such a waste when we are longing for real couple interaction. I really miss their flirtatious banter and now that they are together, there should be lots of affectionate touching and kissing, but it seems they've been ordered to never touch. Not even hold hands or have Castle put his arm around her waist - nothing. It's gotten bizarre.
Kate was out of line here. No matter what Castle says or does it makes her doubt him. When he told her he loved her she lied about remembering it. The next time she yelled at him for withholding info about her moms case. The only time she's ever wanted him is when he's told her he's thru then she always decides to reel him back in. He always takes her back no matter what. How can she doubt he's in it? It took her 4 years to get with Castle but in minutes she's drinking champagne and kissing Vaughn. (He didnt just kiss her, she closed her eyes and leaned in) I thought it was bizarre. Kate needs to decide if she actually loves Castle. The guy couldn't do any more for her than he's already done.
I loved this epi. Seamus nailed it. Castle and Beckett had a great moment at the end that ended with a kiss. It was great! I really didn't enjoy the epi about Espo. Maybe it was just a bad story but this was great!
Loved this episode. It was a good creepy story and everyone including Perlmutter was great. I loved that he called Wes Craven to pick his brain! And the Holy Water saved the day after all! I was also glad to get a scene at the loft between the 2 of them. We need more of those.
I realty enjoyed this 2 parter. It was wonderful to finally have an episode that Nathan could show his acting chops. He should get an award. Frankly im tired of cable shows getting all the awards. I dont find them entertaining at all. It was great to have an episode centered around Castle. Everything always seems to center around Beckett with Castle providing comic relief. I'd prefer to see more of him or for him to get the meatier roles. I was concerned about Brolin playing the dad but I thought he did a good job. Wished it could have been Harrison Ford! If his dad does come around again, Beckett will arrest him for Henson's murder so that could be problematic.
After all these years the stories are still great. I hope they are still chasing bad guys 5 years from now.
Don't shoot me but it seemed like last season was mostly about Beckett. She seemed get the meatiest parts. This episode was the same. Castle is just kind of along for the ride. When he has a bigger role he seems to be portrayed as a lovesick bumbling idiot. I'm incredibly disappointed that we know nothing that goes on between these two. Are they living together? Do they even see each other outside of the precinct? I want to see more (or any) of them actually in a relationship. I'm here because I like Nathan Fillion but I don't think the writers do. I don't think Martha and Alexis have to be in every episode and it was fine that they weren't in this. I do think that there should at least be a moment between castle and Beckett every episode and some episodes ought to devote 5 or 10 mins to them actually being in a relationship. We waited 4 years for it and it seems like it didn't even happen.
