Bloody hell...did Rick Castle just torture someone? And Kate let him?very dark...

I liked that they actually took at least Quinn out to Paris for this rather than try and dress up California with French things...

If Gates isn't aware of 'Caskett' by the end of the next episode, then the writers are screwing up...

That wasnt torture. That was just proper motivation.

Well those wanting things to go a little deeper and a touch darker got their wish lol. Great episode, I thought Fillion was excellent in it, like Stana a couple of weeks ago he got to stretch his legs and delivered, what a father will do to protect his daughter should never be underestimated, the less Beckett, Espo and Ryan said the more supportive their simple looks and gestures were.

Part 2 is going to be interesting after that killer ending that benefited from actually being shot in France (and an epic shot it was), I thought the twist might be that Sarah wasn't the target, Alexis was and it was Castle's nemesis 3Xk, but it looks like it might be linked to Castle's father.

But it's definitely indicated that something dark happened to him as a child that sparked his interest with murder.

That's kind of been left by the wayside since. But I'd like to see it explored more. And maybe killing off Alexis would be too much, but I'd like to see something to expose that darker side of him.
A lot of things that are part of TV pilots often fall away once a show finds it's rhythm and knows what works, but this ep is certainly showing a side of Castle that surprised even Beckett.

Haha! I'm glad Ryan said it as that was exactly what came into my mind.

Having looked at some of the responses online for the episode... Something popped out at me...

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Why did the kidnappers torture one of their own in the farmhouse? makes no sense... The 'story' doesn't work.

What does work is the fact that Papa Castle, possibly being a (former?) CIA (or CIA-like) agent, was the one to torture the guy to get information on the location of his grand daughter.

Molly Quinn was asked on twitter if she thought the kidnappers were after her and not the other girl... Her repy was 'getting warmer'.

Castle himself asks the same question about why the guy was tortured and got no answer, I think you're right that it's his father as her's CIA and the FBI agent said it was done by a pro.

I think the kidnapping of Alexis has been done to draw out Castle's father.

If this turns out to be right then it is christmas for me, because this is what I've been wanting for a long time. A chance for Fillion to spread his wings again. This could expand his character significantly depending on where they go with it.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
From the beginning I was thinking they were after Alexis, but I thought it might be because of Castle's past. Something that hadn't been revealed. It being about his father works just as well.

Man, I haven't watched the show since the Fairy Tale Murders. Just kinda neglected it. Just caught up with all the Episodes in the last 3 days and the show is still awesome. I loved the thing with Castle and Beckett trying to keep their relationship a secret. The Episode with Ryan and Esposito trying to figure out who Beckett was dating, was all kinds of hilarious.

And the most recent Episode with Castle letting out his other side, good stuff. Can't wait for Monday.

Pretty good last couple of episodes. Some of it definitely did feel like Taken, especially the bit at the end of the 1st half with Molly Quinn on the roof in Paris.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
So it turned out to be about Castle's father, who has been a spy all along. Hopefully he'll come back for another episode in the future.

I thought that Castle's shady French helper might be in on it somehow or turn on him.

I also thought though that perhaps Sarah's father might also be behind it and was using his own daughter in the conspiracy.

Was Fillion really in Paris? Some of it sometimes looked like rear projection or green screen at times.

BTW, what is Castle's father's name? Is it Frank?

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Quinn went out to Paris with Fillion's stand in and I believe about two or three members of the film crew for this... The rest of the Fillion scenes were filmed in the US. They did use Green screen for a couple of scenes...the first of them was originally had a different image behind him in the promo last week.

I quite liked the Castle-ish smirk 'Hunt' gave when he said his name was fake... Also, it's just hit me as I type, the two parts were called 'Target' & 'Hunt' .... And the plot was to kidnap Alexis to get Hunt to appear...the bad guy wanted to target hunt...

I thought the scene with Beckett in the interrogation room was rather telling... But I was surprised she was allowed to go as far as she did... That's twice now this season she's gone a bit feral in the box...

So this season, Castle has emptied a clip into 3XK and now helped his father to blow a guy's head off....


All in all, if Fillion doesn't get some sort of recognition for 'Target' & 'Hunt' then I'll eat my hat...

Three weeks till the next episode?

That was a terrific episode. And I just knew he would get the Casino Royal Book by the end.

Great episode, I thought it was so well done, I loved how Castle was determined and brave but didn't suddenly turn into a badass, it made his mission to rescue Alexis all the more relatable, terrific performance from Fillion.

I really liked Brolin as Castle's Dad, I enjoyed their scenes together and it set things up nicely for the next time they meet, it was good to see Castle act maturely towards his long lost father and the "Wanna play spy?" line along with his plan was gold.

The way the story cut between New York and France really kept the story ticking along at a perfect pace, I loved Beckett verbally ripping that skanky chick.

I guessed that a copy of Casino Royale would be sent to Castle by his father to let him know he survived, but it was the perfect way to end the story.

I guess after this, Alexis will stop her video blogging? Castle warned her about the dangers of putting herself out there. I think in hindsight that was probably a set up back then for this episode in the pipeline.

It was a really good episode...

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
I love the fact that the show has a cast capable of holding their own in an episode over the two 'main' stars of the show... This and the Espo episode a few back are great.

Dever (and Dever) were brilliant last night. Seeing the different side to Ryan was great to see.... And I did like the reveal of his 'crew'

It was obvious when they started the baby arc that Jenny would end up preggers, but I kinda thought it would be a finale reveal, rather than here.

The 'B' story of the nighttime mutterings was comical. The chemistry Katic and Fillion has shows.


Next week episode 100!

This weeks ep was great, seeing Ryan in a different light was cool and Seamus Deaver did an excellent job.

It's cool to see the 100th ep will be a Rear Window homage, nice choice.

A) I love how aware the show is of itself. They actually mentioned Rear Window in a Rear Window homage. Most shows wouldn't even dream of this because most shows take themselves too seriously.

B) I don't think I've ever seen a main cast where all of them have as much chemistry as the Castle crew has. They make it seem so easy.

The Firefly reference in the season two episode was the best though:

"Dad, you haven't worn that space cowboy costume in five years. Isn't it time you let it go?"
