Castle Season 7 Episode 10 Review: Bad Santa

This was an okay episode. I enjoyed the look of mock terror on Kate's face, when she was told she really had to write a Christmas poem. Watching the trailer for the next episode, it looks like this was a setup episode to give Castle an arc outside of the precinct. At least, that's what I hope it is. At this point, the 12th is practically a character in the storyline. I figure it will be similar to Becket's Washington DC arc. Castle as a P.I., that's just fun stuff! Haven't really been a fan of Lanie and Esposito, so I'm ok with them realizing that fact and admitting it to each other. As for being a Christmas episode, my favorite is Secret Santa from Season 5 with the quote "the clock was commissioned by a secret society to count down the end of days. A secret society of Santas, who are the guardians of time"

Boohoo! I'm hearing a lot of crying, this was fun considering the genre. I'm not sure what the fan base is looking for, but this is good stuff. new stuff, we're looking for casket with a new story. We got it...little bit of heat with the honeymoon. But really, this isn't cable, so let our imagination run wild. I'll watch this in syndication !

Castle Round Table: Caskett At Last!

I think Beckett would have stayed with Demming, but they probably wouldn't have stayed together. He was nice, but easy to be with, so there was no challenge there.
The change that disburbed me the most was finding out that Castle because the carousing playboy that he had only been acting at and had grown tired of when Beckett interupted his book opening. Because he never met her, he never found a new purpose.
I enjoyed the change in Martha the most. She was the only character that seemed to flourish, but I think that's just part of Martha's character...regardless of the situation, Martha will always rise to the occasion. How hysterical were all the pictures of her....and the colors Whew!
1st to answer the question. I'm more skeptical, so bump on the head it is....but I have a healthy respect for the unexplained, so I'll continue to wonder. 2nd, I'd like to comment on the slight similarity between this episode and "Time will tell" from last season, where the writers leave us with just a smidge of doubt when Simon Doyle disappears on Castle at the end. I'm sure it's just a coincidence, but "Time of our lives" and "Time will tell" share a similar title and the fact that both loosely deal with the supernatural, well it's interesting.
Beckett would be a great captain, but then there would be less partners in crime, so I'd like to think she'll remain a detective
I was disappointed that Alexis and Castle grew apart. I think we've seen that being a great father is such a part of his personality, it was tough to see that loss.
My favorite moment is more a series of moments. I loved that Castle kept sneaking back into the precinct for the case and to see Beckett. More than just his optimism, I've always felt that one of the reasons Kate fell for Rick is because he never gave up on her. Because he was always there for her and with her. It grew it a kind of trust that she hadn't found with anyone else in her life. Even when she sent him away, he would come back for her; he risked his life time and again to stay with her. So for me, it was perfect to see that he didn't give up in this universe even though he was disappointed in the changes in her personality. He knew that if he kept showing up, eventually she would she what was right in front of her.
