Happy CASTLE Monday! First of all, can we all take a moment to realize that is it now December, and not only that, but we have only a few more weeks until the holidays? Time – it flies. But I digress! Let’s talk TV.
On this week’s episode of ABC’s Castle, Rick gets a visit from his past, which seems to be a theme this season, as the team investigates a murder of one of his action-hero movie idols. We also finally get to see Kate say goodbye to her apartment – a sweet farewell for her and for the fans.
I actually wasn’t expecting much from this episode, and it surprised me. I’ll be honest, that had a lot to do with the Kate/apartment storyline. But the entire episode was a lot of fun to watch, and Nathan Fillion really knocked it out of the part with his flailing and excitement about meeting the cast. Although I know some might say it was a little over the top, I enjoyed it and he got some laughs from me (and did you see those biceps? Hello, Mr. Fillion.)
One of my favorite parts was when Castle and Beckett find out that the victim had fibbed about his roots, and wasn’t exactly as cool as Castle thought he was. It was great to see them play off each other – Castle heartbroken and Beckett scoffing, but we know she loves her manchild. I also loved when Castle decides to join the boys as they try and get a piece of evidence themselves, which is where he brings out the Biceps (thanks to costume designer Luke Reichle), and ends up in a bit of an action movie himself.
Meanwhile, Kate was taken back when Castle told her that he never really liked her place. But, after some much needed girl talk with Lanie, she realizes that he never needed to because the apartment held her stories – her mother’s case, her life rebuilt, and where she fell in love. Now, she is moving on to their story, and the end where she carves her initials into the wood was a heartfelt moment. Truly my favorite part of the episode – although I do wish she had mentioned to Castle about why she was a bit sad, or had a conversation with him about why it meant so much.
