Episode Summary


While the team looks for a way to disarm the bomb that Beckett has stepped on, Castle diverts her attention by engaging in an argument about who fell for whom first.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • A beautiful episode.

    Not many shows make me cry but this episode did. It was great taking a look into their past and seeing how they have fallen in love. The ending was perfect. Tears rolled down my face. Great episode for a clip show.
  • Still

    EVERY cop show has to have this episode at some point, where someone steps on a land mine or bomb, and they need to open about their life. Predictably, Beckett survived, but some of the clips shown and the dialogue was well timed and placed.

    Strong episode, despite the cliche.
  • Favorite clip show

    This is one of my favorite clip show episodes. I don't usually like that type of episode but they did an excellent job. And "bomb buddy" was priceless.
  • Please no break up

    I feel he risked his life to be with her at the end,it has got to count for little conflict is normal but pleassssssse don't break them up.
  • Awww - memories!

    Excellent episode with the flashbacks to some great moments.
