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.
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.
Let's face it. We all knew that bomb wasn't going to go off because they both were going to find a way to defuse it. But thet definitely pushed us to the edge that last minute, I was so tense I thought I was going to break. And all those flashbacks! Oh man! I smiled all the episode. It was great. And I would like to see more of all that Castle teasing. I just love him. Adore him.
Nothing like a likely-death scenario to heal a relationship! I couldn't find fault with this episode. Of course I *knew* they were going to save her, but I was still in suspense, and there was a niggling suspicion that they might end it like that just to shock everyone. I knew they wouldn't, but they still managed to cause me to doubt myself. I approve.
I have to say, usually episodes that mainly focus on clips of past seasons are difficult to stomach, but I did enjoy it with Castle.
In my opinion this episode was a nice shout out to the fans. Especially to all those who were "Caskett" fans from the start. At times it was almost like a fan-cut of favorite scenes. I have to agree with a comment below, the "case of the week" was just there to have a reason to show those clips.
Well done writers. There were other shows that did this and failed miserably. To bad this season is almost up.
It was lovely in many ways. I am however glad they switched this episode with the last because if they would have come of this episode in to a storyline where Castle and Beckett are suddenly stagnating that would have been realy wierd. This episodo coming AFTER that episode makes alot more sense.
Someone wrote below that the next season would be the last and I hope they are wrong, I think this show has a lot of episodes in it yet!
If the writers cant be bothered to write an original episode why not just schedule a re-run? What a witless episode. You combine an obviously unsuccessful attempt on the stars life (what you really thought Beckett was going to die?) with cobbled together clips from past shows. Lazy, insulting to viewers intelligence but sadly not atypical for network TV lately.
I don't mind clip shows as long as they move quickly and fill my needs, and this one did..... the clips were funny and sexy and the bomb thing was just the duct tape to hold it together. The show is renewed for another season, but the next will probably be the last. I hope the writer/producer gets notice early enough to come up with a clever set of final episodes. It's been a great ride.
It was a good, but not great episode. I was proud that Rick showed how much he cared, and has grown up by being Kate's bomb buddy, but where was Alexis? I mean her dad is in a building with a bomb that could go off and no one bothers to tell her. Lanie was also conspicuously absent. Lanie is Beckett's best friend and she is not fretting over her friend standing on a bomb?? The big reveal with Captain Gates knowing about the Caskett was underwhelming. Best line of the episode was Castle commenting on Kate's different hairstyles over the years. Stana Katic is a beautiful woman and I loved all of her hairstyles, but the long hair is definitely her best look.
I do not understand why they threw a clip episode in when they have so much left to do. They still have to deal with Senator HRG. I love Jack Coleman, but he will always be HRG to me.
Home-run. It's definitely not a story-mover by any stretch of the imagination. We do get one important story moment, but it's kind of ruined with the knowledge of what happens only a week later (thanks to the two episodes being aired out of order). However, the episode was still done very well with beautiful music backing. I was laughing and tearing up and awwing at all of the appropriate moments. If we had to have a flashback episode, this was definitely the way to do it.
Hands down, this episode was by far the best episode. In this episode, the Caskett couple have many flashbacks dating to as early as Season 1 and this episode really refined their relationship. For the first time, Beckett actually addresses Castle as Rick which we have never or rarely seen. In the end, she says something along the lines of, "You know Castle. When I was standing on that bomb, I was thinking about which kiss was the Castle asks which does she think is the best and she replies with, "I think we are just getting Now, hopefully this means there's 100 more episodes to come or at least 3 more seasons ;)
