This was not the strongest episode in the series but it was decent enough to enjoy, especially watching Kate in her black outfit. The only thing that bothered me was the high heels she was wearing when they found the mine shaft. How was she able to stand up or even walk over rough terrain wearing those heels? And I am not a fashion person at all. My idea of dressing up at my age is wearing a pressed shirt with my jeans. What I enjoy the most is the chemistry between Nathan and Stana playing their respective characters on the show along with the other cast members. There are a few series where the cast does mesh very well and Castle is one of the best. As for Kate rescuing Castle at the end, there is a certain ying and yang to their characters and it worked in this scene. Naturally, it was obvious who the bad guy was from the beginning but it worked o.k. The actor has been in a couple of other series but is not a highly recognizable name unless you are into trivia. The article did catch one thing that I noticed immediately when Kate lassoed Castle, it was her scar. Sometimes little things slip past the editors or actors but not this time and it tells me that for the most part, they pay attention to the little details that make Castle so entertaining. I do wish they would stop making Castle look like a doofus so often because his character, a very successful author who knows the world, wouldn't be or at least in my humble opinion, someone who couldn't handle most situations. Remember when he went to Europe to rescue his daughter? He wasn't a wuss in those episodes. In the end, it was a "fun" episode and hopefully the writers will return to their usual good writing.
The series is enjoyable and the characters interact on a high level. Don't want to throw cold water on anything but am I the only one who thinks by now, Crane should be wearing something else other than clothes well over 200 years old? I can buy the premise but at some point, doesn't Crane have to reflect the 21st century if for nothing else, his clothes? I know this is fiction but...........
I agree with you Kate. A baby for Jane would not fit into the show at all. Maybe a failed pregnancy has already been setup when Jane mentioned she did not want to sit behind a desk and without her action filled role, the show wouldn't be the same.
