    The British stuff was alright, but overall, this was one of my least favorite episodes of Castle, just because the whole relationship stuff was so forced.

    They've been doing this all series long. What the hell guys... what the hell.

    Hopefully this doesn't just fade away like her nurse friend did. Hopefully there are some actual ramifications for it.

    No, it should fade away ASAP. It should up and vanish in the cold open next episode. But it won't, so they'll spin in out next season too maybe!

    But maybe they'll surprise us and get out of the contrived rut.

    Oh yeah, Castle's "plan" was too stupid to be funny since they really needed to do it.

    And thinking about them surprising us, yet still dragging it out, I'm wishing the episode ended more like:

    "So you like her, huh?"

    "Yeah, but I loved you. But you knew that already, didn't you? Gotta go."

    Or some variation where he gets his beef out in the open.

    And then she stupidly lets him walk away, but it be better than this.

    I just liked that his name was blatantly supposed to sound like cunt.

    I did not like his awful accent.

    You'd think so... but they have an established history of doing this contrived shit for no real gain. I'm going to wait it out and hope they surprise me.

    I feel like they have now passed the line of where the genie can go back in the bottle. This has to be the final push, the only hope is it doesn't take too many more episodes to reach it.

    Calling it now.

    One of them will profess their love in the season finale, but the other will not answer/be rendered unable to answer, and it will end with that cliffhanger. Next season, they'll go through some shit and decide it's for the best that they not get together.

    Dick Castle was pretty funny.

    Contrived relationship complications were not.

    I was discussing it with my Director. She said it was very "Middle-School." Having seen the episode, she was correct in her assessment.

    Well.....I loved the premise, but I didn't like the execution so much. Baldwin's character was a little too much of a caricature for me.

    Good ep, though. And we need the whole cast of Firefly to make guest appearances.

  • XeddicusXeddicus Registered User regular
    I don't think they made any Firefly references...too bad.

    And they do need the rest of the Firefly cast to show up. Except maybe Morena Baccarin. They'd turn that into another roadblock somehow...

    There were two or three in there. "I like to keep my options open" is from the start of serenity I think, and "that's a very fine coat" seemed like it was one, even if it actually wasn't.

    Castle playing with a dinosaur toy at the beginning of the episode a nod to Wash in the Firefly pilot, maybe?

    Well, they had to shoe horn her non-'problem' into Castle's contrived-'problem' mainly. Probably could have come up with something that flowed a lot better, yeah.

    Pffft. Getting accepted to Oxford is no big deal. I got accepted to Oxford. I couldn't afford it but I got accepted.

    I can actually sort of understand Alexis' position. When I was applying for universities, there was a program that rejected me in April (at the regular notification timing), and then sent me an acceptance in June, I guess because they fucked up their admissions counts or something. And my response was a resounding, "Fuck you."

    That being said, I'm not sure how you could make the brilliant, hard-working, private school, white daughter of a rich, New York author any less empathetic than having her freak out over only getting a "regular" acceptance to Stanford.

    I think it would have made a bigger impact if they didn't say "you got accepted to everywhere!"

    If Stanford was the only place she applied to and got rejected, than accepted... maybe it would make more sense. But it is a bit contrived.

    Thankfully, she didn't seem that upset really.

    I didn't like it either considering on another ABC show (Modern Family) they made a huge deal about someone being waitlisted and the whole family was in such high spirits over it and in Castle the daughter gets so many and is unhappy because she got accepted by a college that had denied her before.

    Alexis just seemed more like a teenager than usual especially since she is portrayed as wise beyond her years in the show so it was an awkward shift for her character. They could have made a less subtle comparisson between her and Ashley maybe working things out rather than comparing Kate and Rick's love to college admissions.

    As for Baldwin. Loved it. Dinosaurs at the beginning.. loved it. Great A plot, really bad B plot.

    There was also a Baldwin line that was something like"keep you flying". But really no direct references, sadly.

    I liked tonight's episode. Fun investigation, the Castle/Beckett stuff seems to be moving along (oh god please don't push it back with someone else), and his daughter's college stuff seems to be done (hopefully).

    Ah season finale already next week.
