Castle Cliff Notes: Death Wish

Alright, first I have to apologize again for my absence last week!  Between pregnancy and traveling I haven’t had a lot of time for TV but I’m back this week and so was Castle!  The team continues to work together and this week’s case focused on a stolen antique and the potential for three wishes and a genie!  Of course Castle was eating this theory up, but the rest of the team was skeptical of a lamp with magic powers.  It led to a traditional Castle episode with Caskett moments and a new addition to the 12th family.  So let’s get started with this week’s countdown!           
3. Manly Wishes
Gotta have the bromance!  And I couldn’t resist this three wishes themed moment between Ryan and Espo! Ryan says that if he had a genie he would wish his kid was already born and sleeping through the night.  Espo says “fatherhood has made you so damn boring.  If I had a wish I would use it to become the top MMA fighter in the world and take home a different hot chick every single night.”  Ryan changes his mind saying that he would actually wish that he could be a Broadway star and win Tony’s.  Espo questions “you’d wish to wear tights and sing showtunes for a living?”  Ryan counters with “you’d wish to wear speedos and grapple sweaty men for a living?”  Espo reinforces that he also requested hot women but Beckett interrupts their fantasizing with case work.   First of all, I totally get where Ryan is coming from with the whole baby thing but these two crack me up.  I wasn’t too surprised by each characters wish but I loved them giving each other a hard time and putting their wishes in a light that makes them unmanly. I’d be down to see either Ryan in tights or Espo in a speedo, but the X-Files fandom knows about my speedo love.  These two love battling for masculinity… But you know, don’t forget about the hot women…
2. A Growing Family  
Alright, time to get sappy (pregnancy is making me soft… I swear…).  The crew meets Ryan at the hospital where they find out Jenny is having some complications during pregnancy.  Beckett steps aside with Castle and prefaces her upcoming question by reiterating that she does believe in genies or wishes but wonders if he can use one of his wishes for Jenny and the baby.  Castle says “I already did. Both of them.”  Beckett is visibly relieved and at the same time Ryan reveals that Jenny was stabilized and delivered a healthy baby boy names Nicholas Javier Ryan.  Beckett tells Castle to thank the genie but Castle tells Beckett he no longer needs a genie because “I already have everything I could ever wish for.”  Beckett says “right back at you, handsome.”  She tries to ask Castle if he is sure he wouldn’t wish for different cool/ sci-fi objects and he says he would get a time machine “only to go back and fall in love with you all over again.”  AWWWWW.  So many sweet moments here from Castle using his wishes for his friend, Ryan naming the baby after Espo, and Castle saying all the right things to Beckett.  I told you pregnancy is making me soft… I got a little teary eyed…don’t lie. You did too.

1. Cantaloupe and Canoodling
At the beginning of the episode, Castle is seen in the loft trying to prepare breakfast when Beckett approaches wearing a silk robe with a sexy nightgown underneath.  She says they after he cleans up “maybe they could go for a round three.”  I think the whole random agreed with Castle as he could only say “woah” as Beckett started to take off the robe. Just as they start to make up, Martha enters which prompts Castle to state he wishes she would call before she comes over (so does the fandom!).  Martha explains she didn’t want to call and risk interrupting them in the middle of “you know what” but she acknowledges that she did in fact interrupt them anyways.  She sees the cantaloupe on the floor and says “oh and with a melon!  Not judging but *room temperature*”  I mean I was upset with Martha for interrupting but I can’t stay mad at her long!  I’m sure Martha has many “you know what” stories and considering her tips about the cantaloupe, I’m sure they are juicy.  Also, lets go back to Beckett’s robe and nightgown.  So sexy!  I love the sexy and playful side of Beckett and am enjoying actually getting to see some happy Caskett moments again… even if they get interrupted.
