  • Didn't anyone notice the gigantic hole in the plot???

    We are to believe that Tyson planned the whole thing so he could escape forever. But the action required Castle to escape custody and Tyson didn't plan that, and he couldn't have. Duh!

  • stupid detectives

    I can't believe they gave up on Castle so easily. Shame on Beckett. HELLO! computers can be hacked!!
  • Probable Cause

    Every cop show has to do this, the episode where the star gets framed for something he did not do, but despite Castle succumbing to a bit of cliches in this show tonight, they did manage to keep it entertaining so all in all I have to give the episode a solid score.
  • Great Stuff!

    Best episode of the season so far! Castle and Beckett have great chemistry and the ending was perfect! As soon as he didn't floot to the top I knew he was alive. We will be seeing him again!
  • Improbable Cause....

    It's always writers desperation when they resort to the clich framing of a lead character for a murder they didn't commit. If the shows producers want Castle to continue past the current season, they really need to get some writing talent on board for future episodes. Seriously guys, if Richard Castle wrote this sort of stuff he wouldn't be the successful writer that he is. The show and the cast deserve better. And why is it, that in every cop show that's ever been shown on TV, the bad guys can shoot the victims in the head but the cops can only shoot bad guys in the upper body, they NEVER get a head shot...moreless

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Castle: Thank you.
      Beckett: For what?
      Castle: Believing in me. I mean, given my reputation, my history when you saw those e-mails, it would've been real easy not to.
      Beckett: Yeah, well, things have never been easy between you and me.
      Castle: Maybe that's what make's it all worthwhile.

    • Lanie: What did Castle say when you talked to him?
      Beckett: He said that the e-mails were faked. He said he never wrote that story, and that he was being framed. You should've seen him, Lanie. He looked like a little boy, he was so scared. (crying) I know him, Lanie. He is... an immature, egotistical, self-centered jackass sometimes, but he's not this.
      Lanie: Are you sure?

    • Castle: Jewelry. I never would've thought of that.
      Beckett: I guess I'll have to remind you when my birthday's coming up.
      Castle: Why, Detective Beckett, was that a hint you just dropped?
      Beckett: Why, Mr. Castle, I do believe it was.
      Castle: Shameless.
