Well, I had nothing but gushing praise for last week's episode, but this week . . . meh. I called who the killer was in the beginning (although I didn't see the best friend's boyfriend's crush) and Castle was acting like a first season man-boy. It was also a little rehash of when Beckett was investigating the soap opera case and she was a fan, but was embarrassed about it to Castle. Too much of the same. Come on, writers, I know you can do better.
Like, when is Castle going to find out how much of a fan of his books Beckett really was and how reading his novels got her through her mother's death? (As we found out from her old boyfriend). That could be such a fun and emotional show. No need for Castle to look so goofy all the time.
And the thing with Alexis being barely dressed and Castle seeing her? Felt so throwaway. I was embarrassed for that one. Oy. And where can I start with Ryan's wardrobe choices from last night? Just no. Please stop with the weird jackets and vests. Last night hurt my eyes to look at him.
The only redeeming quality to me about last night's show was the final scene. That little dance in Castle's room and the mask was HILARIOUS! In that one little scene they made the whole show feel like less of a drain. Other than that, it wasn't one of my favorites.
Do you hate when shows rehash old themes from previous episodes?
