Murder, He Wrote: Review

Finally, our couple made it to the Hamptons, but of course things could not go smoothly. There was certainly a lot of hype for this episode but in my opinion, I’m not sure it met the expectations.   For me, this is my least favorite episode of the season.  The ebb and flow of dialogue didn’t jive as usual but that being said, there is a lot about the episode I do like.

First, the “boys” are on the case of finding out who Beckett’s mysterious boyfriend is.  They try to enlist the help of Castle and Lanie but are undeterred with their lack of assistance.  Esposito is on a full out mission to find out who the man can be and is a little put off with Ryan’s lack of enthusiasm in his efforts.  I was surprised to find that Ryan is the first to know but chooses not to tell Espo.  Could this open up an opportunity for a double date in the future?

Another high point in the episode was the mention of the fan loving “Caskett.”  It’s awesome that Andrew Marlow chose to add that line in.  It was like they were paying homage to the millions of Castle shippers glued to their television.

Finally, the end of the episode finally gave us the kiss we’ve wanted to see since the season opener.  Was it enough for you?  Certainly last week’s handshake left us wanting more but did the writers deliver?   It seems like Kate and Rick are having a harder time getting together now that they are together.  Just make out already!

Although this wasn’t my favorite episode, I did enjoy it.  I also understand that Marlowe is walking a fine line of keeping fans satisfied and keeping the show great.  The chemistry is still 100% and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.  I can’t wait to see what is in store for us next!
