Montgomery can't be the big bad. He's not that powerful. It'd have to be a crime lord or someone high up in political office.

Or maybe they'll have a crossover with another ABC show and make Anna the big bad. Or Stephen Collins.

I would not rule out Montgomery so quickly.

Re: Castle: Season 3 (Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic) - Discussion & Spoi

These "serious" episodes seem so out of tone with the bulk of the series. So next week we're back to yukking it up? Which is fine by me, 'cause that's the version of the show I like, but when it goes from grins and giggles to grim and gritty and back, I get whiplash.

^It would get dull if the show never varied its tone. A good drama series should have the occasional comedy episode to ease the tension, and a good comedy series should have the occasional heavy drama to keep us invested.

Awesome episode. Great to get back into the mom-murder arc (though it's refreshing to have a modern show that understands it's okay for an arc to just be revisited once in a while rather than be constantly serialized). There were some really good character moments -- with Beckett and Castle (and was this the first time they both called each other by their first names in the same episode?) and with Castle and Martha (a shame there was no Alexis, though). I loved the reveal of Beckett's secret homemade case board. It's like she showed Castle her Batcave (and yeah, that came out sounding naughtier than I intended).
Totally agree.

Still, I'm a little disappointed that so little real progress was made. Well, I guess there was some progress. Last time, we found out who shot Beckett's mom. This time, we found out why. What's left is finding out who the ultimate mastermind is and what this bigger conspiracy is.
I think it's the boyfriend. I don't bother to remember his name because I already know Castle is her soulmate.

(You know, there was a moment, when Captain Montgomery refused to let Beckett come into the 12th even though she said she'd be safest there, that I wondered if he might turn out to be the Big Bad. That'd be a daring twist.)
Yeah, I kind of wondered about that, too. The last time she had a police car parked outside her building her apt. was blown up.

But I'm annoyed at Castle's failure of basic genre-savviness in the teaser. I mean, come on, a guy wants to reveal a killer's name, but instead of just saying it, he gives a long, rambling preliminary speech? Come on, that pretty much guarantees he'll be shot before he finishes! I kept waiting for Castle to point that out and urge the guy to stop burying the lead. (I remember a Get Smart episode where a character was sufficiently genre-savvy that the very first thing he said was the killer's name, but Max forgot it and the guy was shot before he could repeat it. Or something like that.)
But if he had done that, the case would have been solved before the first commercial.

Yeah, but at least they should've lampshaded it by having Castle show some unease about seeing that cliche developing before his eyes. Given his nature as a justifiably genre-savvy character, it felt out of character for him to fail to acknowledge the trope.

^Why would they? Do you just think there's a resemblance, or have the actors played brothers before?

i wish this show would come with a big 'silly episode' or 'serious episode' sign at the start.

or mix it together more in some episodes.

Yeah, but real life is more like that. There are yukks, and then there are yucks.

Spotted a mistake in tonight's episode:
The last number on the lottery ticket was 79. Neither of the multi-state jackpots in the U.S., (nor NY's Lotto) have numbers that go that high.

That's okay. No one's phone number begins with 555, either.
