After last week’s drama heavy episode of Castle the season finale, For Better or Worse turned out to not be the expected comedic end and instead turned out to be a cliffhanger, of course. This sneaky sucker punch was appreciated though. For a show that started like a homage to I Love Lucy, or perhaps Love American Style(and you are seriously showing your age if you remember this anthology television comedy) it certainly kept things interesting enough until that last minute swerve into drama land.
Castle, Veritas as the penultimate episode before the season finale was another of those segments where it looks like Beckett may just bite the bullet but instead finds closure at last. Kate has had a couple of episodes in this season where she’s been the focus of more serious plot lines. Actress Stana Katic shows yet again just how powerful those acting chops are. Not only can this actress do comedy, she can knock the socks off drama as well.
Last night’s Castle episode, That ’70′s Show could have been titled Life on Marssans Harvey Keitel. Although to be honest, the premise had nothing to do with being in a car crash or going back in time. In the show, there is a “visit” to the 1970′s in terms of wardrobe, the precinct, and the morgue, but no real, or imagined, trips to the time of disco is evident on the show.
Episode 17 of season 6 on Castle: titled Belly of the Beast sees Beckett thrown in at the deep end of an undercover assignment that could have been called the Lazarus effect. Because not only will Kate be in a life or death meeting with a crime underlord by that name, but, a man from Beckett’s past has metaphorically risen from the dead, just like Lazarus.
