  • Captain Roy Montgomery

    So FINALLY we get to see the Captain !!!!



    Normally I am not really interested in the case, more in the Castle-Beckett scenes and Castle-Martha-Alexis scenes but this one really caught my attention :) Even if it was kind of twisted I found out who the killer was the second I saw Layla's brother, however it still was an excellent episode we some Casckett-y goodness at the end, I can't believe Beckett is a Sci-Fi lover :D

    I also love to see daddy Castle even if his reaction ( tracking Alexis' phone) was definetely excessive ! Still the last scene between the father and the daughter was awesomely cute and I hope we will get some more Molly Quinn in the next episodes.



    Great episode!!!moreless

    "Law and Murder" the latest episode of Castle features a pretty dull storyline, if I had to be honest. The episode was quirky, it was fun and engaging, but the storyline itself was admittedly pretty dull. And what made it worse was how political the show got, with the DA trying to suggest that putting a man away for a crime he did not commit because he committed others was fair and just. I am not saying that notion is entirely untrue or that it does not actually happen, but Castle should not let their opinion on that issue cover the broadcast.



    I did like Wick from Seinfeld popping up as said villain though. Okay episode, but nothing to write home about.moreless
  • He Fought the Law, and the Law Won

    9.5
    I'm kind of surprised that this episode is only rated a 8.4 I thought that this episode was one of Castle's best! It had everything, good acting, great writting, twist, and unexpected turns, and the conflict between good and evil all shoved into 43 minutes and 9 seconds.



    I only saw the ending coming, because I really really didn't like Lila's brother. I don't know why he just seemed like a jerk, and probably a brat.



    I thought the episode was a fairly clever idea for a crime show (and I've seen amost every crime show episode since 2000) A great episode, and will definetly one day be a Castle Classic.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • When Captain Montgomery goes to District Attorney Lou Karnacki's office, Karnacki offers him some 1875 St. Miriam whiskey. This whiskey, in its trademark red bottle, is from the secret stash discovered in the basement of The Old Haunt in episode 3x10 Last Call.

    • Goof: When Castle and Beckett are standing in front of the whiteboard discussing a conspiracy theory, Castle starts the scene with a mug balanced on his right hand. Beckett walks across the scene between Castle and the camera and in the second that it takes Beckett to pass, the mug has jumped to Castle's left hand.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Castle: (pulls out his phone and starts texting) Heir to the Addison fortune is murdered and, during the trial, a juror is murdered as well. This has all the makings of a John Grisham novel.
      Beckett: What are you doing?
      Castle: I'm, uh, texting my poker group. Calling dibs on this story.

    • Lanie: He was poisoned all right. Pink lividity, the smell of bitter almonds. Test strip came back positive for cyanide.
      Castle: Cyanide. That is fantastic! (Lanie looks at him) Unless you're the juror.

    • Alexis: How did you know where I was? Are you having me followed? Monitoring my metro card? Checking my credit... my phone! Dad, tell me you are not tracking my phone.
      Castle: Okay, look, this is not about what I did. It's about what you did. You lied to me.
      Alexis: Says the man who violated his daughter's civil rights.
      Castle: Okay, technically, I would have to be the government to violate...
      Alexis: You're tracking my every move.
      Castle: Not your every move.
      Alexis: Welcome to George Orwell's 1984, with my father as Big Brother.
      Castle: This isn't about...
      Alexis: What's next, a chip in my brain?!
      Castle: Whatever it takes when you're keeping secrets from me.
      Alexis: You know what? If you're so interested in what I'm doing, why don't you ask your phone? I'm sure there's an app for that.

    • D.A. Karnacki: First rule of being a lawyer is never ask a question you don't want an answer to.
      Captain Montgomery: I guess it's good I'm not a lawyer.
      D.A. Karnacki: Yeah, well, that's the problem with you cops. You live on the corner of black and white. But over here, on this side of the street, it's just gray.

    • Castle: Alexis said she'd be in the Village today, but she's over in Williamsburg.
      Beckett: Well, how do you know she's in Williamsburg?
      Castle: GPS tracked her phone.
      Beckett: You tracked her phone?
      Castle: Yeah. Super cool app I just downloaded. I can see where she is at anytime.
      Beckett: Does she know that you're doing this?
      Castle: What, are you kidding? No, she'd kill me.
      Beckett: And be justified.
