Review - Castle Season 2 Episode 14 The Third Man

I can't believe how great Castle has gotten this season. Everything has come together to make the show a blast to watch and the ratings are great, so we should the show continue.

There was a really complex mystery this week that I won't go into detail. There are twists and turns all over the place and might have been the most complicated crime to date on Castle. There were squatters, pet shop owners, diamonds, and a litany of suspects. Eventually the investigation looped back to the beginning and the murderer is caught. The ending was rushed, but the crime wasn't that important and it rarely is.

While all the investigation was going on, there was a lot of Castle and Beckett stuff going on. Castle is 8th on the New York Ledger's 10 most eligible bachelor's list and printed is a rumor he may be off the market due to Beckett. Beckett is furious when she sees it, but decides to get a date of her own.  Castle and Beckett end up at the same restaurant with their dates. There dates aren't going well mostly because their minds are fixated on the crime. Yes, they think alike and come to the same conclusion at the same time. It's really cliché but fun to watch at the same time.

The episode ends with Beckett and Castle arm in arm going to eat dinner. Like any reasonable person, I think the Moonlighting curse is baloney, so I'm hoping they get together soon not because I'm a crazed shipper, but because it simply makes for better stories. Can someone honestly tell me that the 7 seasons of JAG shenanigans were good?

Score: 9.3/10
