It was an ok episode. I usually hate hostage-episodes. Castle has done it twice now. I actually think Espo had more chemestry with the cop than with Lanie. I still think this season is lacking something, I don't know what but this season is kind of boring.
How are you supposed to see the chemistry between Espo and Lanie when she appears for 5 seconds on screen? Pi last season had more sreen time than her
LOL! We have seen them together many times since season 1.
Am a fan of both of them and over the six seasons they haven't shared more than ten episodes together on screen. I have watched all the seasons. Lanie is such a sidelined character, she's like an afterthought.
and as much chemistry
I think the problem with this season is the less than satisfying conclusion to last season's cliffhanger. It started out interesting this season but then what? We've been rooting for these two characters to get hitched and instead of giving us the wedding we've been waiting for they used that moment to keep us holding our breath but for no good reason. I'm hoping they will pick up this storyline and give us some proper answers but if they wait until the end of the season or drag it out between a bunch of episodes they will lose a bunch of fans in the process.
You make a good point. The cliffhanger was awful and the season premier was just strange. I wonder how they will explain the memoryloss. My problem with this season is more than that. I think they have turned Beckett into a supercop and Castle is turning incompetent. He stil has the wild ideas but Beckett saves the day. (Last episode). Don't get me wrong, I still like the show but it was better in the first seasons.
It was like that ever since season 3
it kinda has been. i live in Hialeah and it's one of the few shows we get that I love. I think the series has lost some spark. they probably should not have done the castle disappearing on the eve of the wedding storyline. seems they got lost in trying to dig themselves out of that. to be fair though, it started slow last season as well with kate in DC and it got a lot better so expecting the same.
PD said he'd be leaving 'soon'. Very vague. I'll really believe PD is finished if Der's SL means he takes his children to Washington. No need to return to GSMH or Mer. Sad MerDer couldn't have a happier ending if that happens
I want to give the show props for finally showing some kind of wolf transformation with Hayley. it has been such a long time on both Vampire Diaries and the originals since we have seen a full-blown wolf transformation. remember how epic it was when Tyler first changed ? that was definitely a top moment 4 Vampire Diaries. also I keep forgetting that Klaus can also change into a wolf whenever he pleases. that is definitely something we should see more of. the premier of season 3 of Vampire Diaries we learn Klaus turned into a wolf for two days,Klaus recalled killing manyand remembering the kills. He laternoticed that the fact that he hadstayed a wolf after the full moonmeant he could change into wolfform at will.
I also agree that we need to see some wolf transformations, otherwise the stakes feel...reduced.
That last scene... #@*& I never thought a show on the CW would make me cry. I'm wiping tears away for people we barely know. It's incredible storytelling!

I really enjoyed this ep. Definitely one of my faves since the pilot. Action, character development and suspense, with all the characters getting to do their bit. I wasn't really surprised at Paige willingly going to Bosnia. It's her job at the end of the day, and I guess it was in contract to Sylvester being scared to go. And her feelings and maternal instincts I guess manifested themselves in her wanting to get the necklace for the presumed dead soldier's son. Real shame this episode had a lot of interruptions and was pre-empted in the NY area, cos it deserves good viewership <3
Why was the show interrupted in the NY area?
football game - the jets
Funny it was interrupted in both Jacksonville and Savannah for a court sentencing. So I switched to Sleepy Hollow which as interrupted by something else - guess the stations assume that the audience are boobs who won't change channels.
In Dallas both Scorpion and Dancing With the Stars were interrupted by the court coverage, and I was shocked when both of them were actually only PAUSED and restarted where they left off. That never happens!
Agree with the knocks in the article against the episode. A throwaway character is the mole? LET-DOWN!
Great review! You didn't miss much the first 10 minutes, just the usual murder scene, introducing two witnesses (of which one will turn out to be the bad guy) and the contrived "How could Espo get into a hostage situation on a subway". Lots of unlikely steps they had to take, like leaving Ryan behind in the cruiser and that SUPER-LONG moment in which Stone pulled the emergency break and the train took forever to get to a stop while Javi was still holding his gun but not making any move. Awkward.Other than that, I thought the ep had solid entertainment value although it was somewhat heavy-handed on the relationship issue. The transit cop LIP-READING Javi inadvertently mouthing "Lanie!" when they finally made the move on Stone and her subsequently offering him unsolicited relationship advice? REALLY? How likely is that? I understand that they trod lightly on the Caskett, after all, we just got the full load twice in a row! Oh, and they did mention that it was their first case as a married couple and had a cute throwback moment when Beckett said he still reminded her of Hooch. More than ever, I dare say.
I don't see both marriages as salvageable...I mean...Alison is too emotionally involved with Noah, although Cole loves her, I do not think it's enough for her anymore!have you seen her face when Cole told her he wanted another baby?...mmm...she didn't look fine at all! As for Noah and Helen...I think they are totally kidding themselves. Noah's explanation was lame and Helen's comment about "being a waitress" sounded even worse!when they were talking, it was the first time in the whole show, that I really disliked both of them...I found Cole and Alison's moment in the street to be more real...heartfelt...while the one between Noah and Helen felt wrong..they are not honest to each other...not even now that the affair is out! and that sucks after so many years of marriage and 4 kids
Callen's Polish accent is terrible:). Trust me I am Polish an I know.
Only word he got right was Wojtek :D
Even their African accents are terrible. Actually all shows that have Americans act as Africans, the accents are soooo terrible.
You seriously can't expect someone who has never learnt this language, has probably never heard it and had just little time to learn the text, to have a perfect accent. I think we should be more tolerant, Poles or Czechs certainly don't have a perfect English accent either.
I wish i cared about werewolves because it looks like they're going take a lot of space. They're SO boring. Ugh
