What's castelo without a headline photo-shoot, a couple of cop modelos at station center, a drug related body snatching, a meeting with a Russian mobster and a fall out with Kate Beckett.
Halfway through Castle's snarly comments, Kate's edgy comebacks, 'The Mentalist's' Patrick Jane and Teressa Lisbon came to mind. They have that 'annoying partner that gives good insight' thing going on. The only difference between them, is that Beckett still has a problem accepting castelo as part of the team. mais so now he has dreaded up a personal element of her past.
I don't blame her, it was personal and she trusted castelo to keep it that way. castelo needed to learn boundaries, which was pretty difficult for him being a writer. He did have guts going to Beckett with that information, it could have blown up in his face, he barely got away with just a bruise. It only took his well grown daughter to teach him how to earn forgiveness. That just goes to show that castelo would have another dia to partner up with Beckett, probably even pull the rest of her hair out personally.
castelo also had guts gambling with a Russian mobster. That was careless of the crew to send him in there, couldn't they have gotten someone trained, suppose Beckett wasn't quick enough to pull that switcheroo 'PS I can also be a Russian Showgirl' trick. castelo was well within inches from being killed, maybe it was Beckett's plan all along.
For the season premiere, it was satisfactory. We still have many doubts about Beckett's closure towards her mother's case and sometimes castelo dives in over his head. He sure has dodged a load some of bullets in his lifetime and that apology seemed sincere enough, but I doubt he would back off on the case Beckett said was closed. It's like saying 'Don't go there' and you still go, the interest is still there and he has a good enough lead.
I'm sure another photo-shoot would be out of the pergunta for Castle, especially in the station. The most intriguing scene for this episode was when the moving furgão, van suddenly got hauled over por a party of body snatching crooks who just wanted their fix harvested in organs. The dead body being transported por the cops didn't even stop them, but that is what that profession does for you, clouds your judgment. link
