I tried to get on board Rick’s summer long disappearance and I was more than willing to suspend my disbelief in order to enjoy a good story. But we waited all season for answers and when they finally came, there were still huge unexplained holes in the narrative. Why was Rick gone for two months? Why did he choose to have his memory erased? Why did we have to wait an entire season for so few answers?
I was skeptical at first. This show works best when Kate and Rick are working together but Castle working as a private investigator was a fun twist that lasted just long enough (3 episodes) to not overstay it’s welcome. Added bonus was Castle’s cool new office that gave our couple the opportunity for some sexy role play!
The scenes between Castle and Martha have always been a highlight of this show but it’s been a while since we’ve seen one that has moved us this much. When Martha had a crisis of confidence about getting back on the Broadway stage, her son was very clear about why she shouldn’t quit.
