    • One of the funniest castle episode.

      9.5
      Oh wow I just loved the interaction between Beckett and Castle. It cute and funny especially when they both try to figure out who and how they get handcuffed together in a cellar. And then there's the manly bonding between Esposito and Ryan about how relationships go and using canoeing as an example if they're relationships going smoothly. But there was a freaky part to this episode too. Where Castle and Beckett are trying to piece together their memories and they see this old lady in a cage. I'd have to agree with Castle there, she was freaky!moreless
    • Discovered this show a week ago...watched them all and i am waiting for the new episode! I AM HOOKED.

      9.0
      This show is amazing, and this episode especially. Usually it is the wit/drama/humour that attracts me to Castle and not the cases. The vast majority of the time i guess the killer because they stick to the same formula (well most of the time), but i still LOVE it. However this episode is different because i did not predict what was going to happen!! I was absolutley laughing at their relationship throughout, they always have amazing chemistry and interactions, but i tell you, my heart was racing!! It was brilliant, just brilliant!moreless
    • One of my very favourite episodes!

      This was so much fun! I loved the interaction between Castle and Becket. It was a splendide idea to handcuff them together in a cellar!

      I loved how all their relationships were examined, Esposito and Ryan were also talking about their girlfriends, it was a good theme. I LOVED that Esposito gave the Canoe Theory. I have been saying this theory after I went on a canoe trip as a blind date last summer. It is very true it is a test of how well you can work together. We were so bad together we scared a cow! Yes, really! we ran onto ground right where a cow was drinking water. And half the time we were going backward down the river. This scene made me so happy, andi loved how it tied in with the very next scene of Castle and Becket trying to work together with the handcuffs.

      And great surprise with the tiger! I did not see that coming. They always find funny things (des choses cocasses...quirky? fanciful?) to make each episode more entertaining. It was very much amusing to see them standing on a vertical freezer with a tiger trying to jump up and get them.

      I didn`t like the new captain before. She is always giving them a bad time. But in this episode we see that she cares about her detectives and she called Castle one of her people. I hope she stays more like this.moreless
    • 'Do you know how high tigers can jump? High!'

      8.5
      After all the talk and the rumors about this episode, I had my self really pumped to watch it thinking that I would get these amazing Caskett scenes and that I would die a happy woman after the whole thing was over.

      I did get some very good and very funny scenes between our perfect duo, but I thought that the episode left me hanging. The case was good, the 'being cuffed to one another' thing was the high point of everything but still...I thought we would get some deep and meaningful talk about where that relationship is going or they would point out that Beckett indeed remembers everything from the day that she got shot or from what Castle told her. The thing that keeps bugging me about how the writers are portraying the way they are acting around eachother is that there's times when Beckett acts the way she used to back in season one. But I think that's just because of the fac that she remembers Castle admiting his love for her.

      I am enjoying this season very much, though. There's been a couple of really perfect and impressive episodes so far and we're not even halfway throught the season yet, hell, we've just finished the first part before the hiatus. Despite my comment about the writers above, I think they are doing a pretty damn good job this season and kudos for them. Yeah, I know I must totally be contradicting myself by now, but what can I say!? These people destined to be together leave me a little confused by the way they act. :Pmoreless
    • Best Castle ever?

      8.5
      Yes, I am willing to go that far, maybe, because this was an incredible episode of television. An edge of your seat premise with Castle and Beckett handcuffed together and locked in a dungeon. Humorous banter, and just great, great drama throughout from the reveal of the killer to the reveal of the tiger in the other room.

      When you spend years building the Castle and Beckett relationship up you can have special episodes like this. It just would not work on a lot of other shows.

      Great, great, episode tonight. It might be the best I have seen.moreless

      • Castle: Tell me this why do you always have to be first? First out of the elevator, first through the door.
        Beckett: Um, I am a cop. I'm the one with a gun. Being first through the door is my job.
        Castle: In the elevator? Look, how about this? Would it kill ya'to let someone open the door for you once in a while?
        Beckett: You do realize, if somebody opens the door for me, then I will be going through it first anyway, right?
        Castle: Oh, yeah, that's right. I forgot. You have to be the smartest, too. Everything's a competition with you.

      • Beckett: What was so special about our victim that our killer wanted to erase his identity? Don't say spy. Or mob hit.
        Castle: Mob hit of a spy?

      • Castle: (at the crime scene) You know what I love about working with you? You always take me to the most charming places.
        Beckett: Well, I'm a simple girl, Castle. I go where the bodies are. Besides, for a mystery novelist, aren't seedy motels kind of a standard?
