I know I have some loyal Castle readers (love you guys!!) and so this may shock and disappoint you with what I am about to say but I feel it must be said. Castle is getting to the point where I either need to do quick reviews or no review at all unless it’s a major episode or something major happens. Was that a huge gasp I just heard….oh that was me…sorry!
Here is why I am saying that. Unless it’s a significant episode like something to do with Beckett’s mom or C&B or the return 3XK, etc, I’m not sure what else there is to say about Castle. You know I love it. You know I think it’s brilliantly written and cast. You know I think it’s hilarious yet poignant at times. And if the episode has that general theme, do you really need to hear it again? I can just imagine people coming on here thinking “seriously, this chick is going to again tell us how awesome and funny Castle is and how if she wasn’t already married, she would marry Nathon Fillion in a heartbeat?” Ok maybe that last part is news to everyone (don’t tell my sweetie!!!) But you get the point. And this episode, like last week was no different.
This episode was about rival pizza shops, their owners, and how a dead man ended up in the oven of Authentic Nick’s. Or was it Terrific Nick’s? Or was it Authentic Terrific Nick’s? Or was it Terrific Authentic Nick’s? I forget. The point is, the story was entertaining although again cursed by the obvious well-known guest start to point the finger right at them and know as soon as you see them, that they will be guilty (CSI’s Liz Vassey.) And it was absolutely hilarious. I loved it and it was a great hour of TV as Castle always is.
With only four more episodes until the season finale which looks to be on May 16th (and yes I will shed a tear at having to wait 4 months to see my favorite cast of characters again) I’m sure there will be some juicy episodes coming up to discuss. Next week’s episode is the much talked about L.A episode and the title of the season finale is called….Knockout. Think about the BIG episodes from this season…3XK, Knockdown, Setup, Countdown. So Knockout says to me, this will be more along the tone of those episodes. There is also a horrible rumor out there that someone we have known since Season 1 will be dying in the season finale. Right now I can say that it won’t be Castle or Beckett. It better not be Ryan, Esposito, or Alexis. So I fear it will be Montgomery or Martha. But if it’s Lanie, so be it. I hate to say that but Lanie has been used to rarely this season that I really wouldn’t notice if she isn’t there anymore. However, she is with Esposito and seems to be Beckett’s only real girlfriend (although that storyline seems to have been dropped a bit) so it would kind of suck if it was her. As much as I like Capital Roy Montgomery, he doesn’t do a whole lot either and it would be nice to see Beckett in charge of the department. I really like Martha but honestly, other than loving Susan Sullivan and Martha having a few lines here or there, will she really be missed? I don’t know…probably not by me. The 2 best Martha episodes were 3XK and Knockdown. Other than that, she’s been ok. But regardless of who is going down in the season finale (if that is true), I won’t be happy that we will be losing a member of the Castle family. I don’t want to see anyone go because I love them all.
