good episode, but it felt like filler and i think it's too close to the finale to be having a filler episode that still doesn't resolve the previous 2 episodes. i enjoyed it, but i'm tired of all these hiatuses that break up the new episodes because it feels like the tension between castle and beckett has been unresolved FOREVER. i can't even remember what it felt like when they weren't awkward anymore and it's becoming apparent to me that nothing will be resolved or even discussed until the finale and i can't deny i'm disappointed with that, no matter how good the episode.

that said, i really did enjoy this episode but i would've enjoyed it more if i didn't know there were only 2 episodes left this season.

I enjoyed it, I really enjoyed the Slaughter character, even if his methods weren't very orthodox. I thought it was pretty cool seeing another side of the police force.

Did anyone's affiliate have a promo for the next ep? I just saw some RDJ/Nathan thing instead.

Filler?? That wasn't a filler to me at all! I LOVED it! What he said in the end specially "Do you want it badly enough to get over being hurt", because in this episode they BOTH got over it, she got over being sad and wondering what was happening and moved on to actually DO something, she was there for him the whole time, and as we all know, actions speak louder than words , and once HE realized she'd been there all along he got over being mad too, and by the end of the episode everything was ok again , so no, I can't say that this was a filler episode, or that things were unresolved by the end. I couldn't be happier right now

yeah maybe filler isn't the right word, because stuff DID happen, i was just hoping for something more tangible by this point in the season. these hiatuses are prolonging this awkwardness and it's starting to get really frustrating.

Enjoyed it, scene with therapist was big, Kate doesn't know all the details, but clearly she wants him back and she recognizes WHY Castle may be closing off, to protect himself. Espo was huge as well, he knows how she feels, and asked her to get back on track even though she does feel upset, and she agreed (though probably reluctantly).

And while not really shown, I think Castle doesn't realize how good he has it... gorgeous partner to look at every day, two buds on the team, continual inspiration for his books if he figured out how to get over his hurt (which is not easy and took time). Kate was hurt for 7 months and hopefully mostly healed. Castle, he was hurt for just a few weeks... and he's coming around.

If/When they figure out WHY they both kept secrets, for the other's benefit, THEN the payoff will really come... we're almost there...

was anyone else surprised that it's only been 7 months since Kate was shot in their timeline? doesn't that mean that every episode this season has taken place within like 4 months since Kate was gone for 3 summer months?

i said months too many times and it's bothering me.

OMG! I LOVED tonight's episode!!! Hah! Very first scene was a Fireflly reference I was lapping it up! Except, sorry Nathan, I love you, but leave the doll playing to Alan Tudyk. lol And of course you can't miss the obvious reference with the Browncoat. Loved seeing Nathan & Adam together again, just wish they could've found a more permanent role for him so he'd come back again. Anyway, I had seen most of the beginning of the episode in all the sneak peeks so that material wasn't new, but I still LOVED seeing just how much of a fish-out-of-water Castle was and was thoroughly entertained with his interaction w/ Slaughter. That scene with him entering the bar yelling, "NPYD!!!", calling the drug guy a "dirtbag" multiple times, fighting the guy in the bar, grabbing onto his leg and being drug and bashing a bottle over his head? That'll never get old! Oh! And the punch when Slaughter talked suggestively about his daughter! I'm glad Espo helped to push Beckett into taking action & working on the case for Castle was the sweetest thing on the planet! You could tell how touched Castle was by the gesture! And all of the parallels they made with the Castle/Alexis talks hopefully hit it home for Castle. I think it's safe to say most of the angst had subsided by the end between them and I was so thankful to have seen that!

Oh...and I definitely think we'll be seeing that Cesar Vasquez or Valdez (I think that's his name? Can't remember the details right now) character again. Loved Beckett's threat to him, so very sexy!

You have to give the writers a chance to let it all play out. Ju was right, a TON of things happened to get them pointed in the right direction tonight. They have a plan and can't just get over all the secrets right away, I'm really liking the pacing of their story. Frustrating? OMG yes! But that's the point, good things come to those who wait and I'm waiting as patiently as I can knowing it'll all work itself out on May 7th.

Giana - I only saw the RDJ/Nathan bit too, so I'm assuming the promo for the April 30th epi will come out later this week/next Monday. Loved that bit with Nathan & RDJ though! God I'd KILL to see them in a film together...oh! or have Robert Downey Jr. guest star!

This was a fun episode and to me not a filler. They both feel hurt but I think both of them want it badly enough to get over it and that is exactly what this episode was about.

I think Castle is starting to realize that he was maybe taking his situation with them for granted and I think I have to. It was good for them to change it up it made me realize how special Castle's relationship with the team is to and I missed them.

I loved how Beckett was still there for Castle and he knows that, even after him being a "jackass" she is still there. She is not pulling away and arguably she isn't acting either, but she is staying and there for him and I think that is just as important.

Beckett was flawless in this episode her talk with that gangster just...... she really is extraordinary.

I'm so proud of Beckett right now. She may not be talking to Castle about her feelings but she is at least addressing them to others and for me that is enough for now. The fact that she has been out loud acknowledging that they even exist is a huge step. I loved how she said that she wasn't ready to hear that he loved her then but I think we can all see now she is. It broke me when she felt like she had waited to long.


Did I miss it or was that scene with espo and ryan saying you can see they are pulling away from each other cut from the episode?

Yes! It illustrated so well on BOTH ends how badly one wants the other and how far they've come as individuals.

Yes, me too! Except, I don't think he started to, I think he full on realized it by the end and was grateful for them having his back, unlike Slaughter.

Beckett is making a lot of strides this last part of the season, I'm so happy for her!

You're right! I didn't see it in tonight's episode...guess they cut it? Too bad, I thought that line was cute. I did like Ryan's line, "I feel like he's cheating on us", so sweet and cute!

Castle/Iron Man crossover fantastic idea!

I think they've been waiting 10 years to punch each other on tv.

okay.. two things did happen. Kate finally knowing what the problem is, and Castle asking himself the question whither its worth it or not.

except for that, and that was a matter of a minute in total, I thought this episode was not good. I hated that slaughter guy, the case was not interesting to me, I missed the castle and beckett interaction that we only got to see 5 minutes prior the ending of the episode.

I mean hell, this is episode 21!! not 12. I know that most of you think that this was somehow a big breakthrough episode for the both of them but let me tell you, kate having to be pushed by other people about what the real problem is.... fail! She should have noticed herself thta Castle is hurt. Okay she didnt see him listening to her confession, but even she should kow that 7 months is a really long time for someone who works with you every single day and is in love wiht you for even longer.

and yes I get it that somehow it was a turning point as castle asked himself if its worth it or not but seroousiyl.. we are almost in reach of the finale? how will it continue? if they contonue to move this slow they are making babies by the time they are 80, and let me tell you... this is gonna be hard then.. okay weird word choice

anyway, I am furstrated. I expected a lot more of the episodes not long before the finale
