  • Beckett survives the bombing and now the killer is seriously mad. It turns out he has been blending in at all the scenes and now the team is zeroing in on the fact this isn't his first string of kills. Then Shaw disappears and Heat's got to bring it!

    Some nice scenes with Beckett and Castle in this episode as they get a little domestic at times. Castle gets to play the hero and really show his stripes as a capable partner including using a real gun!!!

    We can all relax as Castle has been renewed now for another season. The two parter really brought the ratings up and this final part is the all time highest rated episode of Castle so far. I think this show might have some staying power long term.

    It was nice to see the home life for Castle stay pretty steady. Mom's not disappearing from the scene and Beckett even stays the night after the big bang that was her apartment.

    The killer turns out to be a really smart guy except he can't keep away from the limelight. In the end it took all of Nikki Heat to take him down. Nikki Heat being the combined talents of Beckett the character and Castle the writer. They do an excellent job of really looking at the story line as if it is being written as well as lived. A nice touch.

    Overall a good follow up to the first part. A little anti-climactic after the explosion ending that half, but pretty well done despite that fact. I'm looking forward to the completion of this season and the next season of Castle. It's a great show! Thanks for reading...
