I know this picture has nothing to do with episode 11 but I had to include it. I am a HUGE dog person and his shot was so cute and so sweet that I just had to post it. It’s from the upcoming episode “An Embarrassment of Bitches.” I hope it’s a permanent thing that Beckett keeps him. I’m going to assume it’s a him because both of my dogs are boys. If Katic and Fillion are dog people, this episode looked like it was a lot of fun to shoot.
I’m including this picture for one reason and one reason only…Kate Beckett has the BEST coats. She always has on these classic, stunning coats. I love them. So I had to post this!
Anyway, back to the episode at hand! I don’t have a whole lot to say about this episode other than it was a great episode. Classic Castle. You have Ryan and Jenny’s wedding which we have been building to for a season. And kudos to the writers. Usually a couple gets engaged on TV and 8 weeks later they’re getting married. This really was about 1 year from when they got engaged so it made perfect sense! I loved seeing Ryan trying to keep his cool while doing the cleanse. Really, why would anyone do that? But I would have attacked Esposito as well for that doughnut if I hadn’t eaten in over a week. I don’t know how the man kept it together as well as he did.
I will say though, I completely disagreed with Esposito and Castle wanting to tell Ryan about Jenny and the victim. I was with Beckett on this. What good would it do to drudge up something that was years old. All it could do is hurt him and he and Jenny are happy so leave it alone. Esposito did decide to tell him anyway (after wisely giving Ryan some Moo Shoo Pork) and it ended up not fasing Ryan at all because he and Jenny already talked about it. Whew. I would have been really upset if that broke them up or canceled the wedding or whatever. I still disagree with them though!
I’m not sure why Esposito and Lainey broke up in the first place, but it appears that the feelings haven’t 100% died down yet. Esposito was determined to find out who Lainey’s “plus 1” was for Ryan and Jenny’s wedding and when he saw he was a doctor who played basketball for Kentucky, he knew he needed to step up. Turns out Lainey’s “date” was her gay friend’s boyfriend to make Esposito jealous, as was Esposito’s date who ended up being his cousin who played for the NY Liberty. Awesome! Esposito commented on how beautiful Lainey looked (which she did) and escorted her down the aisle. Damn they are cute.
The case was interesting. A Giglio who ended up dead. Originally everyone thought it was a lady who was scorned by him but it turns out it was all business when a woman found out that the victim was sleeping with women connected to her firm to get dirt on the company to take them down. So he had to die at her hands. Many kudos to the writers because I was sure it was going to be Jamie Ray Neuman. Usually the famous guest start is guilty but this time, it wasn’t the case!
Finally we have Kate and Rick. More cute glances. More sweet conversations about “if we were getting married, would you want to know my number?” It was adorable and it was typical. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. Guys, we have got to do something here with these two. Please! If you aren’t going to put two people together who are clearly in love with one another, then don’t even go there with the flirting. I said this in my review of “Cuffed”…I know the goal is to eventually get them together, but in a little while. Then why torture us with those moments? It’s not like we need reminding that they love each other. We don’t. We know it. They know it. You know it too! So if you want to wait, fine. I’ll wait and be patient. But this makes it harder and every episode where you do this, it becomes more and more unbelievable why they are apart.
I am so happy Castle is back from break. Did you miss it? I did. Hopefully we have a long string of episodes before the last break before the end of the season. I think we will. Did you like “Til Death Do Us Part?” And what are your thoughts on Castle and Beckett at this point? Are you getting annoyed yet or are you still ok?
