Castle: Deep Cover (2014)
Season 6, Episode 12
10/10
Episode 6x12 and Beyond...
14 January 2014
Brilliant - Simply, brilliant, a well-executed episode! Fantastic interplay between all of the characters in this episode, even Ryan' showing of little Sarah's picture was smooth an effortless. It fit the motif and scenes timing,very well. The interaction with Castle and Beckett was wonderful, and human with just enough emotional engagement to make you feel that they are in fact in love. Really enjoyed seeing Martha as the "strong insightful mother," and the woman face to face with her lost love, it was a nice change from the stage diva. I thought Castle resolution about his father was both timely and showed an adult Castle, not the witty, bantering court jester. Moreover, I cannot wait for the September - Season 7 "Wedding Event." Kate is also due for a promotion at the 12th - the question is will it come this season or in season 7? I think we all have been holding our breaths, waiting for the big event – the "Wedding of Castle and Kate." Nevertheless, we know that it won't be a wedding without either pre-drama or drama the day of…; several fans have even written possible scenarios - from Kate becoming a "runaway bride," to her having done something very foolish in an effort to not address her love for Castle. Such as marrying Josh ever so briefly, but Josh never signed the annulment papers – Ooops! Now, as much as fans hate, the latter, it seems likely to fit our Kate's personality and mental state at the time. Some have even stated that they will end up at "city hall" I do not think so.... what girl doesn't dream of her perfect wedding day and from Kate's conversation with Castle, Kate is no different. I do suspect that there will be a roadblock, but this is not the time to bring 3XK or any of his "doctor monsters" back. Let them at least have this one, since they will spend the rest of the series embroiled in one type of kiosk or another.

Most importantly, I am happy to see that the writers have rediscovered their "mojo." We were all getting a little worried, but have no fear; it is usually around the 6 season of a series, that direction of the series seems lost. The great thing about Castle, unlike most other crime drama's, is that Marlowe and crew value the fans input and have even used some fan ideas in episodes. The questions that may remain in season 6 – will be whether Castle's dad has a part in the bring down Senator Bracken? The character Kate has to have closure before the wedding day.

Possible season 7 - What will the confrontation look like as the doctor and 3XK meet their swan songs? The face-off here without question will be intense, this has I imagine been an intentional matching on the part of Marlowe - to re-enact a battle between Sherlock Holmes (Castle) and Moriaty 3XK (the doctor of course the "black widow") for those of you who know the older 30's version of the series with Basil Rathbone. The question becomes who will be the next pawn in this life or death game. Could it be a pregnant Kate, and/or Martha? Could this be the storyline that pulls in daddy – Jackson Hunt his skills could be useful here and will this be the storyline to take us into season 8? All and all, I think fans will be in for an exciting season 6 from here to the season's conclusion and we all – including myself have invested in more that our share of popcorn and tissues for Season 7.

Castle: Limelight (2014)
Season 6, Episode 13
10/10
Castle's Possible Daddy Issues, Kate, The Wedding, And More... (Possible Spoiler Alert!)
14 December 2013
Castanati - Chicago

I have been in constant laughter over the reshaping of Castle's Season 6, as the New Year begins. The next three episodes will... I believe - will return fans back to a series that has rediscovered its rhythm and passion. I predict that the second half of the season we will see the rich contrast, textures, complexities, and great characters, and themes with that we all have come embraced over the 6 seasons, including the romance. Castle as TV Cinema host some of the most highly skilled and qualified actors in the industry today. Episode 6–11, and beyond will I think, allow us to see a Kate who may be ready to go public with her engagement to Castle, the birth of Ryan's baby, which I am sure will come with more than its share of drama, and the return of Castle's dad – James Brolin. Which I am sure will be an episode filled with nail biting difficulties, will daddy be good or bad, and I have a feeling that when Kate's really finds out about who Castle's dad is – she's not going to be very happy. Of course, Martha is once and again face to face with her lost love, and if you don't think – that their meeting won't create fireworks – then you haven't been watching Castle; besides we all love a great romance in between crime solving capers, and the human drama of the characters?

We all hope that the "People Choice Awards", will give Stana Katic, and the "Bromance" of the century its due, but if not - we will still love every moment to the last episode of this amazing series. Then turn sadly to our DVD players, DVR's, and other devices, to watch each episode, over and over again, after all this is the mark of great cinema, no matter its format. Until that day, I plan to tune into every episode, and like all of you - I look forward to the "Big" - "I Do's," between Castle and Kate – it is time! Now, I didn't say, the first marital attempt will take! There will be drama and you can almost bet money that something will foil the "I Do's" - at least the first time, so get ready. The drama will continue between Castle and his dad, Alexis, and Martha, and it will be fun watching Kate, fit into the circus that is the "Castle Household" All and all it should be a great deal of fun and funny, with tender moments for those of us who are romantics at heart. We will see Caskett take down 3XK and friends, along with Senator Bracken, and we will cheer, hold our breaths, and worry through the summer months over the next season's end cliffhanger. We will talk about all our favorite characters, watch their growth, achievements, and even celebrate our not so favorite villains' and smile, but until then… See you all in Castleland 2014.
