I liked seeing Castle and his daughter figuring out who done it to save a guy on death row. But, does Alexis ever smile? She always seems so rigid and on the edge.
She's at the age where she takes everything seriously. But I'm pretty sure she's smiled as I can picture it.
I liked the episode. I'm glad that Castle and Alexis are on the mend - they've always had such a great relationship. And it was great to see Alexis without having to see Pi!
OK. In what world would the captain send two officers to wander around NYC with a humongous diamond in their pocket? And to wander back with it once she knew it was worth $60 million? That requires suspension of disbelief in a totally unnecessary way.
:lol @ "send in the clowns."
For those who miss the poker games, as I do, I read recently that they were promoted by Stephen J. Cannell, who really did enjoy acting. It was he who kept after the other authors to do the show, and it's been a lot harder to persuade them since he died. The show runners are still hopeful about getting them back from time to time.
Liking that the show is back to having that Nick and Nora Thin Man screwball comedy vibe it's so much fun to watch.
Ugh. I wish they'd stop bringing up old storylines. And the scenes next week don't even mention what happened this week. Got bored with Beckett's mother's story and am so over this guy. Not happy.
I enjoyed this episode and would have enjoyed it even if they had not used 3XK as the killer. I thought it was very inventive. I'm sure we'll see more of this story later on. They have always seemed to intersperse an ongoing story line or two among the individual weekly stories. I like that; it gives the show added dimension for me. It appears that next weeks episode may be more lighthearted.
It was great to see a Lainie/Esposito centric story. I hope we'll see more of that and more of Ryan as well. Even the lady captain has grown on me, something I would not have thought possible during her first season. I don't know why I can't remember her name, perhaps because they aways call her by her title or Sir. The "sir" makes me cringe since I think it's ridiculous for any female to be addressed that way. As much respect could be shown by calling her, "ma'am."
Why was Beckett all freaked out by the song? I thought it had something to do with her mother maybe?
