Castle Review: Hamptons Heat

by at . Comments

Busted!! A weekend away for our favorite couple led to a murder and a secret leaking. "Murder, He Wrote” took Castle and Beckett to the Hamptons to find a dead body and to be outed as a couple. Time to talk Castle...

Breaking Rich. A wealthy weekender is found dead in Castle’s pool after being shot. Having been involved in a bank scandal, clues point to a former colleague that the victim had testified against. In a twist, the victim and his colleague had been setting up meth labs in different buildings around the city. 

Caskett Sighting

This show is usually on point with the twists and turns it throws out during the weekly case. This murder? Not so much. Having the head of the marina be the killer made sense, but in the last 30 seconds, it turned out to be a local deputy who didn’t like the wealthy weekenders. This ending didn’t make complete sense for the fact that the killer was someone we had seen on screen for maybe all of two minutes.

On the other hand, the case was fun and it got Castle and Beckett some what out as a couple...

Describe Her! Ryan helped out with the case by interviewing suspects back in the city. Luckily, one of them had had already spoken with Castle and Beckett. 

How much did you love Ryan’s reaction to the news that it was Kate out there with Castle? The actors on this show are impeccable with their facial reactions. 

So the secret is slowly coming out. Martha, Alexis and Ryan now know about the couple. Who is next? 

“We Are Caskett.” Not only was this quote so hilarious, especially since it came after a Brangelina jab, but it recognized all of the shippers out there. Since Season One, Caskett has been a couple us at TV Fanatic have rooted for, and now they are an official couple with an official name. LOVE IT! For more awesome quotes, check out the Castle quotes page

After Thoughts:

  • Quick sightings of Lanie, Martha, and Alexis. Looks like the ladies are working their way back on our screens!
  • How ridiculous was Castle’s beach house? Kate Beckett is one lucky woman.
  • Ryan is such a good friend that he is going to keep the secret of Castle and Beckett to himself. 
  • A fear of getting this couple together now would be that the stories would suffer. Have to say, these two work as a couple so well, it doesn’t seem awkward at all.
What a fun episode! The series continues with its light hearted and enjoyable episodes. What did you think, TV Fanatics? Hit up the comments and let us know what you thought of Caskett’s weekend adventure. And don’t forget to check back for the official Castle Round Table later in the week. No new episode next Monday! Until then, Castle fans!

Castle keeps climbing upward each episode with it's writing and acting. Can Stana Katic look any more gorgeous?

Wonderful episode in a perfect season so far. My very favorite part was the homage at the end to old time films with the starry night with a shooting star rather than showing them in bed.

GREAT episode! Best line? "...none of them were you." And Ryan? Wonderful secret keeping. Lanie probably knows...just saying....women's intuition!

WOW What a great show from start to finish Nave to watch it two or three times to get all of it all. The writers did a fantastic job I mean the look on Kate's face some times was LOL. I don.t want to repeat all the good stuff the other people said. Ilove what the gangster said and the reaction that Rick and Kate had funny. And Ryan and Esposito trying to protected Kate LOL and so much more. And the last scene was great the writers did it perfect. I loved his House. In the show he is rich. It was a good place to have a show for a change. And his first wife cheated on him with her producer and his second wife they were never in Love just had great sex. And that why they Parted company. Remenber when they went to the Hampton house for the summer and she stayed two weeks.And he wrote a new book. again a great show.

Love the episode as I do all of them! But Ryan....you were awesome and love that you are willing to keep it a secret. Out of respect and friendship for them. Really worried about the 5x05 episode. And as ALWAYS Caskett fans stick together. So Michael...you have a right to comment but DON'T come in here to downgrade a great show! And yea there is no Moonlighting curse or Bones BS! CASTLE stands on it's on! Great writers,producers and directors. The Cast is in a LEAGUE of it's own. Best Show all around!!

Beckett being called his hooker was cute. As was the actions between them that ranged from excited about the case, to the sexual angst when they are interrupted. Just like in real life,lol. A good mix of people, from Aaron Lerner(who from first pic I thought did it),to Natalia Roosevelt, to Marty Bentley, Dock operator. I didn't figure Meth head, Casius McMurray, or Vinny "The Scar" Cardano(Bob "That 70's Show" and just on Sundays, "The Mentalist"), did it. "It was bush league" Funny how Castle woke up McMurray, to ask him a question. But between the Boats and the Helicopter it all fell into place. More were involved then I originally thought would be. Nice touch.
Having Ryan and Esposito helping from back at Squad room was good.And Ryan's interview was a good one. Surprised he was in there alone.
Didn't get who had out Aaron Lerner's boat, must be the deputy? Nice shooting star at the end. To bad Angela Lansbury couldn't have made at least a cameo.

Great Episode! I actually worried that Chief Brady was in on it some how.In my notes I wrote, "is he clueless or in on it?" But to have it be Deputy Jones, he should have been in the story a little more. Castle figuring out the Lanyard tying was good.
Kinda cool to have Ryan figure it out first, but Espo maybe mad at him again when he finds out Ryan knew and didn't talk.
The Hampton place actually made me think of the Kennedy homes. it was nice that Beckett wondered about all of Castle's conquests in it. The pool scene was shaping up to be good, until Randall Franklin fell in the pool. Of course he'd pick Castles Place to die,lol. Castle-"Call 911", Beckett-"You think?" Priceless. Castle excited to help and of course Beckett wanting to hide, to not raise suspicion. Laying on bed, Castle wants to figure it out. Beckett not so much, nice.

We can understand how Castle managed to blast past two wives. He is nearly attacked in bed by a sexually aggressive woman, and all he can think about is a murder story.

Castle is a great show. The idea of how shallow and rich he was was a great idea and the fact that he had had other women in that house was also great ... "But NONE of them were you". I mean he just mealted my heart then. Of course Castle was shallow and snooty rich but he has a heart of gold and he was Peter Pan who is just now starting to grow up with a quite remarkably beautiful lady in Kate. I'd grow up too if I could have that in my arms every morning ... She is lovely and gets better with each show. Hope next week I don't see CASKETT having too much difficulty and falling apart so quickly with him accused of murder. Crossing my fingers for them both.

"We are Caskett" was great. Awesome epi! I loved how Ryan got so crazy angry and commanding interrogating that dude to find out who Castle's girlfriend was. I watched that scene a few times.

Beckett: So, you rich or something?
Castle: I'm not James Patterson rich, but I do ok.

You're in a room full of detectives and not one of them has a clue.
