Winner, Winner, Pizza Dinner!
Going into "Slice of Death," I knew this was going to be a classic Castle episode. Sure enough, it delivered.
The installment focused on a reporter doing a piece on the pizza wars between rival shops. Witty one liners, perfect comedic timing, and Alexis cursing made the hour extremely enjoyable.
Usually the twists and turns deal with who the perp is; but this episode threw us viewers in an entirely different direction.It wasn't so much about who did it, but how and why this was all connected. The plot of the pizza wars just turned out to be an unexpected bonus.
Alexis took a couple steps forward, getting involved in an actual storyline. Like a normal teenager; she was fighting with a friend, crashed a party, and got into a fight.
But in typical Alexis fashion, she decided to work her problems out the mature way. Her troubles led to some of my favorite moments of the night; one on one time with Dad.
Seeing Castle outside of the clever writer persona is always a plus. His fatherly moments were on point, taking Alexis' side in the name calling asking if his little girl had won the fight.
The series has been on quite a roll this season, especially by bringing the simple fun back after the tension filled two-parter a few episodes back. Could this be the best season yet?
Overall, "Slice of Death" was another awesome episode for Castle. What did you think, TV Fanatics? Did the hour entertain or did it fail to deliver? Sound off now!
