Castle Review: Button Up Kitten We're Going Home

Last night's Castle was so good.  There was a great twisty mystery, a Caskett kiss, and quotable lines.  I loved the forward movement in the Caskett relationship as well.  Beckett's look at the end says to me that we're going to be peeling back the Castle onion sooner rather than later and I, for one, am looking forward to that.  After all, we know a ton about Kate and her mom's murder blah blah blah, but hardly anything about Castle, his father, that whole mystery.  If the writers do it right, it could be really good.

I think my favorite parts were the look on Castle's face when Meredith arrived.  Oh man, the situation itself was just funny and Beckett's little one-liners for the rest of the ep about how men do dumb things around their ex just made me smile.  She was not shy at all in saying how she felt and I loved that.  No more insecure Beckett, please.  The show's scene-stealers, though, hands-down were the couple that was breaking everything.  Oh man, I laughed really hard at that.  

As usual Ryan and Esposito stole the show.  "Your worlds are colliding man."  "You're going off a steep cliff."  *whistles*  And Esposito's flying takedown of the boyfriend was awesome.  Even Ryan looked good last night.  I sort of love how Ryan and Esposito act like Beckett's brothers whenever something comes up.  Them turning to Castle and saying, "what's that all about?" really caught me in how much they look out for her.  Although my absolute favorite moment with them was when they were at the door and Ryan's talking about the dream of having a house like that and Esposito is all talking about his dream woman when Ryan calls him out with, "yeah, but then you'd dump her and look for your new dream woman."  The look on Esposito's face was hilarious!

As for Castle and Beckett I loved her line of "Button up, kitten, we're going home" because she called it home.  She acted like the other half of the couple, not giving ground, but really working with Castle through the mess.  I loved her once-over of Castle when he asked what her and his ex-wife would have to talk about, I loved their kiss (so sweet!) and I loved how Beckett was looking at him at the end.  It just bodes well that they seem to be heading toward delving into Castle's background.  Cannot. Wait.

Did you watch it last night?  What did you think?  What shows are you watching these days?

I'm waiting for Fringe to start up again -- but then it will be the last two episodes! Wah!

I just watched last night's Castle on the internet. I'm not sure if it cut out too soon and didn't give me an ending, but the last scene I saw was the ex-wife telling Beckett about not knowing anything about Castle's life. He'd never talk about his dad and she grew tired of his not opening up to her. From that I can see that they are heading down a new line--his background.

Melanie, I heard the finale for Fringe is going to be amazing. You'll have to tell me what you think of it.

Debra, I just loved her very thoughtful look at the end when she's looking at him and you can just see the wheels turning in her mind. I'm excited to see what the writers can do since I think they've beaten the Beckett's mother storyline to death. Glad you got to see the ep! :) (And we've missed you around here! Hope your holidays were wonderful).

Sorry for the absence, but I've been sewing against a deadline--hardly any time to breathe. Our stake had our first Handcart Trek and I wanted my husband and me to have all the period clothing. What a task! And our holidays were spectacular. I hope yours were too.
