Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

I can't believe I didn't figure out that the witness was the killer. I was expecting it to be the nun or the FBI agent.

Every time I see Patrick Fischler in something, I go through much the same though process:

Oh, it's that guy. Isn't it?
Yeah, it's that guy. What's his name again?
Oh, I can't remember, I'll have to look it up later...
No, wait, Patrick something, I think.
Fischler, yeah, I think it's Patrick Fischler.
[Upon seeing the guest credits] I was right, it's Patrick Fischler.

And who knew the Bronx looked so much like a studio backlot?

When I first saw the episode title, I had no idea it would be an homage of a sort to teh movie of the same title.... but I loved it!

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

I absolutely loved "Secret Santa". A Christmas themed episode of "Castle" seems natural, I'm a little surprised that we've not had one before IIRC. Right from the title screen being themed to the references, and the ending, I adored this episode. I still have to catch up from what I missed...but I knew I had to watch this episode.


So I don't know if anyone has been following the news or not, but apparently in February we will finally be introduced to Castle's father in a two part episode. Also Senator Bracken will return in February as well, as well as revisiting Espo's past.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

It was a good episode and I liked the light touches of the Castle/Beckett romance. There was the aversion of that plant near the elevator. Then there was the large Christmass tree and the bit of "I didn't get you a present". It was all very well done.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

Great episode, one of my favorites of the season. Wonderful touches on the Castle/Beckett relationship, and their completely different feeilings about Christmas. My only minor nitpick is wouldn't that clock be needed as evidence?

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

This did feel like one of their solid, convoluted and clever mysteries from when the series was at its peak. The main thing that bugs me (aside from the clock/evidence thing) is Beckett giving up her tradition to be with Castle. What Beckett said about her tradition being to keep watch on Christmas was genuinely moving to me. She chooses to do something meaningful, to try to protect others at Christmas so they don't have to suffer the same loss she did. It makes her like some sort of Christmas Batman. That's completely awesome, and very poignant. I wanted Castle to go to the precinct and spend the evening with her there. And he was going to. And then they went and ruined it by going for the sappier, shallower ending, by having her give up her noble and selfless calling in favor of a big tree and toy trains.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

This was another personal barrier that came down for Kate. I wouldn't be too hard on her for making the decision go to Rick's house. Also if we look at it another way, for the first time in a long time, she has something and someone to be with and spend time with at Christmas time now. In a way she has a new family, something that is somewhat new to her and that she's still getting used to. Also Alexis and Martha also cancelled their Christmas eve plans to be with Rick.


The last shot of them framed in front of the Christmas tree was simply awesome. Now I can spend the hiatus and catch up on what I missed

Unfortunately when I saw Leslie Hope as the dead Santa's ex-wife I knew she was the killer otherwise it was a good episode.

^Whereas I was expecting it to be Tembi Locke, since she's a more prominent name in my own experience.

And since I have no idea who those women were, aside from one being vaguely familiar, it was all a surprise.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

I really liked this episode too. I'm glad that Castle was so understanding when he revealed to Kate that he knew she had volunteered for the Christmas eve shift. I was half expecting them to have a stupid lover's quarrel over it and I was relieved when the writers didn't go down that road.
