I think I know how the Castle Memory loss thing is going to turn out. Before, it was Kate that said she could not remember anything. We all know that was a BIG LIE!!! I think Castle is going to do the same thing with Kate as a way to get back at her for what she did to him !

After watching last night, when I got my breath back that is, I was just exhausted. The acting great from everyone! Yes I was not happy with Espo too but just keep remembering when all he could think about when that DVD curse was on Castle what he could get out of him. It's just Espo's character. I give him a lot of leeway. I just kept thinking that they did this already with Probable Cause. Yes I think that his loved ones were threatened and that's why he made the drop. He could have been told that Alexis, Kate, or Martha were going to kidnapped if he didn't or yes a bomb was placed in his Hamptons House that would go off if he didn't do it. I think that the scraped book Tropical Storm also is going to play a big role in what ever is going on. There's a lot to think about. I am going to research if there is a drug that wipes your memory and leaves behind something in the blood that mimicks Dengea fever. I loved the last 3 minutes of the episode. Thanks ProudTVJunkie for not deserting us. The review was awesome.
I have to admit, it was a very curious show. But I have to admit....I liked it.
What I love about the Castle character is his ability to reason even when he's clueless as to what happened. There was this haunting conviction to his voice that kept whispering....I did not do what you think I did. I am not who you think I am. I will show you rather than tell you.... And then the Beach scene happens...and he sets Kate straight...she has no choice but to believe in him after they find out this is the wrong guy. She knows now that even though he doesn't know the truth, he is telling no lies. He is laying groundwork to prove he is not only innocent, but also, show the world how much he loves Kate Beckett. There is so much more to his character than meets the eye. Someone didn't want him married to Kate and somehow his book research for Tropical Storm has more than ruffled some feathers. I wonder if something happened in Chicago that he wasn't aware of, but had a direct impact on this ARC.
It's nice that Kate stood by her man, and she had every right not to...she was confused and hurt, and I am sure, very alone inside. No doubt she died along with him in the crash. Martha helped so much. As the evidence mounted, painting a rough exterior and interior of Castle, she held out hope, as he would, that the evidence is not always the correct story. No doubt, he has a past as well, and we have seen a lot of it, but this, no one saw coming.
What is curious is the memory loss....it's kind of like he was slipped a "roofie" and woke up with no recollection of what he has done. Not sure if I liked it, but it will add relevance as we go on. As he finds out more, I believe he will rely on Kate for support. It's time for her to be his voice of reason as the evidence leads us down the path. What will be interesting to see is how Castle and Caskett react as they inch closer to the truth. I hope everyone will rally around him when they see what really happened. Oh Geez...What did really happen? LOL
The coffee scene was great, but what really struck me was Ryan and how disappointed he was in Castle as the evidence became reality in a tense situation. Ryan always looked up to him and always sought his council in matters of importance. He was devastated. More so than Espo turning on Castle. It was almost as if Espo expected this from Castle and Jimmy just didn't want to believe it. In the end, Kate and Ryan were more accepting of Rick's situation than Espo was. Rick will have to win Javier over because if you hurt Kate, you hurt him.
As this season unfolds, I am wondering if there is going to be the "Two parter of Two Parters?
Questions abound and we are swimming in the whirlpool accepting that something is going to pull us down. You can come up with a million scenarios as to who is behind this...3XK?...The Dude from the Future?...maybe Castle's Dad's Enemies again, Sophia Turner...A disgruntled Postal Worker(Sorry..could't resist)...Bracken's Right Hand Man...or someone we don't even know from the CIA(I mean, I am sure Rick did some "Consulting" while being "Handled" by Sophia Turner) He speaks the lingo, he gets into places he shouldn't, he sees things that no else sees, he hypothesizes better than anyone ...he gets in your mind and he walks two steps ahead...it's is frightening how good he is at understanding even the most complex evil minds and turning them to mush. But then, we have to know who is brilliant enough to give him amnesia to block out two months of a life. Who can do this? Some will say...NO One!....Castle really did remember and is playing the con game. Wow...make up your own mind and try to outguess the writers. Brilliant..Absolutely Brilliant. Good story and I will enjoy watching Castle take the SOB down who did this to him. Where Beckett took Bracken, Rick will take this person. The two of them are unstoppable and that is why someone did not want this marriage to take place.
But how great is it that the two stayed together and pulled closer even in this sea of confusion and damning evidence. She loves him so much, trusting or not, and that is something the competition did not count on. So Driven lays the ground work for them to begin the long journey back to each other and the truth. Because as Beckett remembers, the truth will set you free.
I said that I was disappointed and disillusioned over the finale and I would love to eat my words that I didn't care if the show lived or died. My wife fed me spoon by spoon last night and I was glad to eat.
Yea Castle Crew.!!!..awesome show and based on the ratings, American thought so .
I put my thoughts up on tvfanatic late last night or early this morning (take your pick ) Not happy with Espo but as I said I will watch it again. But something came to mind about why Espo is so quick to discount Castle...he's jealous!
Yep, he's jealous of Castle being with Beckett, thus the snarky remarks since season 5 and how quickly he's turned on Castle here and with 3XK. And lets not forget that Jon has stated a couple of times that he thinks Esposito and Beckett have "history" together.
I declare it official! Esposito is jealous of Castle!
Sometimes I amaze myself with my deep insight to this show.
Now I am very curious about the adjustment. Castle opened big, even in the demo. 2.4 in the demo and 11.20 viewers. The Blacklist 2.8 and 10.66. CSI 1.9 and 9.4. The adjusted numbers are usually late afternoon.
It occurred to me that some of Kate's initial skepticism about Rick not remembering those 2 months may have been because of her claiming not to remember being shot & what Rick said and wondering if he was doing the same thing.
And you know a show has had a long run when the 15 year old kid is now an adult old enough to drink celebratory Champaign.
And, we're off. The ratings are interesting because Monday night football airs on many local ABC markets when the local teams are playing. That was the case last night in Boston and Kansas City. So we will have to see what the adjustments bring later today.
That being said great start for Castle which won the very competitive time slot from a ratings and share perspective. The numbers were 7.1/12 to the Blacklist's 6.8/11 and CSI:Los Angeles's 6.0/10. We know Castle will not win in the demo, but curious to see the number.
