I dont think Becket is in any real power position though. Both Maddox and Smith are dead, whomever killed Smith is still at large and the senator will take his time killing becket. All it has to be is an incident at work and the senator is in the clear.

Becket may now be in a position of no power what-so-ever as all her cards are out on the table and in reality she has none.
Yeah but the Senator can't risk anything.. Beckett did bluff and he probably knows but what if there is the slightest chance something may slip?

The evidence she has was obtained illegally so it wouldn't be of any use in court but if he kills her, it comes to an investigation and someone tips off the investigator and he/she does some digging it becomes official record and usable in court.. and in todays political climate even the hint of wrongdoing (especially when linked to murder) can end careers.

He can't risk that.. he knows she's on the weaker side and that he has little to fear for now so he's content to give it a rest.. for now. What happens in the future nobody knows but as we know Beckett she will not give up.

Very good way of resolving the case while still keeping it on.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

Wow. That was simply incredible. I think FPAlpha pretty much hit all the points that I was going to make on the episode. "After the Storm" is definitely top five for me. Stana's performance in this episode was among the best from her. Alexis and Martha only in the opening scene I hope is not a sign of things to come, because Rick's family has always been a favourite aspect of the show. Can't wait until Rick and Kate decide to tell people about them. Just a brilliant episode.

I hope they don't keep up the "secret relationship" thing for long. It feels like a contrived way to keep up some degree of tension, and it wasn't very well justified.

I wouldn't infer too much from one episode, especially this one. They had a lot of ground to cover here, including the aftermath of Castle and Beckett getting together, Beckett's resignation from the force, the truth behind the conspiracy, etc. Not sure where they could have squeezed in more of Alexis and Martha . . . .

Not that all that season cliffhanger stuff has been dealt with (for now), they may have a little more breathing room.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

^That's very true Greg...I guess we're just going to have to wait to get Alexis and Martha's reaction to Rick and Kate.

I still hope we get more from Captain Gates. I've been in the minority from the start and liked her character. I liked her comment to Kate about hoping to inspire the same loyalty from her that Roy had.

I also agree with Christopher about keeping the relationship a secret. Rick's excuse of wanting to keep Kate to himself for a bit while not justified, is understandable, he's waited for this for so long, and it's taken Kate a long time to finally lower her defences and admit her love for him. I don't think it will drag on with them keeping this from their friends and family. I expect that Alexis and Martha will be ecstatic. It's possible Espso is already suspicious after rescuing them...heh. I think we're in for perhaps the fun and interesting season yet!

Who played the senator? He looked familiar, and IMDB isn't listing all the guest stars.

That was Jack Coleman from Heroes, wasn't it? It took me a while to recognize him without the horn-rim glasses, and I think he's put on a bit of weight and lost some hair, but I'm pretty sure that's who it was.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

I just checked the guest cast from ABC's press release, and yes it was Jack Coleman.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

Yeah IMDB doesn't list him as well, but perhaps he was uncredited...I didn't see his name in the opening credits either, but that was him indeed.

He also had a recurring role as the vampire-hating father of a teenage vampire on Vampire Diaries . . . .

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

It also took me a bit to figure out who played the Senator. In the still shots of him they looked at on the computer screen, I thought he looked familiar, but it wasn't until we saw him in the flesh that I said, Ohhh, that's Claire's dad from Heroes!

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

For a moment, I thought the senator looked like Bill Paxton, but I'm sure they'd have been blasting news of that guest star from the rooftops with trumpets if it were actually the case.

Great episode. Glad to have it back!

It looks like the facade they will be putting on could be good for a few laughs but I agree with Christopher, I hope they don't stretch it out too long.
