Unusually for me, I actually called this one as soon as they showed the perp. A few good chuckles in the episode but it seemed overstuffed with guest stars/red herrings which meant nobody got very much screen time. The heavily hyped Jane Seymour seemed particularly short-shrifted.
It took me the whole episode before I realized that the mousy assistant was played by same actress who plays the werewolf's sister on BEING HUMAN. I knew I'd seen her somewhere before . . .

Fun to see Castle and Beckett discussing "shippers" and such.

But, of course, the best bit came at the very beginning:

"Who would want to kill a writer?"

"Oh, so many reasons . . . ."

The assistant is the girl from Napoleon Dynamite, Veronica Mars and Big Love.

Aragorn's right, the assistant on Castle was played by Tina Majorino.

The sister on BH is palyed by Alison Louder.

Oops! Got it wrong.

I guess I must have recognized her from Veronica Mars . . ..

I loved her on Veronica Mars. She was also the little girl with the tattoo in Waterworld...

Watched it last night. When they started talking about shippers I immediately thought of the BBS. Sounds like soap fans are very similar to trek fans!

Fans of 'A' are more often than not very similar to Fans of 'B'.

Sports Fans are very similar to Trek fans too for example.

Talk of stats, what they did right/wrong, and what-if's... Some super-fans even dress-the-part for games/conventions, etc.

Fan Behaviors tend to be expressed in very similar ways.

Once I made the connections, I've never been able to 'not' see it.

^What would be the sports-fan analogue of shipping, though? Or do I want to know?

If I were to guess the nearest analogue would be rivalries - as in, what is a greater rivalry, Red Sox-Yankees or Ohio State-Michigan? Or maybe which is the more important rival for your team - Texas/Texas A&M or Texas/Oklahoma as example?

^So in that analogy, would slash fiction be intramural competition?

Omigod, they have to do a CASTLE episode titled "Slash," in which Castle and Beckett discover the existence of "Nikki Heat" fanfic.

And, of course, the murder would involve a mad slasher . . . .

Rivalries are something, but maybe Fantasy Leagues will be closer. A lot of shippers don't let themselves be limited by the text and combine characters in all sorts of bizarre, unsupportable ways. Making a dream team of your favorite players who will never end up together seems like the closer analogue of making a dream relationship out of, say, Reed and Hoshi.

(I'm scared of the Enterprise forum. Can anyone tell me if there are actually Reed/Hoshi shippers?)
