Castle > Castle Round Table: "Probable Cause" > Comments Page 2
Loved the episode and that Beckett knew she had to acknowledge the evidence and a be professional, Castle would expect no less; Beckett's team, of course including Lanie, keeps her honest, focused and asks the right questions; that goodness their screaming, annoying captain didn't yell for once- she adds nothing to the show.
I still don't get how with all the gun shots aimed right at the target, 3xk got away- was he wearing a bullet proof vest? were Castle and Beckett shooting with blanks- it seems to me that they would have questioned more how 3xk could have survived. That was pretty "hollywood", but now we know he will return.
Could not pick a least favorite episode because I think every episode is just brilliant. Every one so far has had some Top 10 moments for me. Seeing Beckett transform into a completely different girl because she is in love is phenomenal. I would put Probable Cause as my favorite because it was nice to see Kate be there for Rick as he has always been there for her. Castle looked adorable in that baseball cap! Wish he would dress down more.
I also do not agree that Espo, Ryan, and Lanie did not believe in his guilt. I think that they did. And I think that Kate lied when she said that she did not doubt him. She did. Still, it was a pretty good episode. Not as good as I thought at first viewing, though.
And Kate does have a bullet scar from her shooting. It is right in between her breasts.
I just watched this again, twice, and I noticed that the final scene setup was ridiculous. There is no way that 3XK could anticipate that Castle and Beckett would get to that bridge just as it was being raised for a boat, that they would be first in line at the bridge, and that he would manage to be right behind them. Also, while bullet-proof regular clothing has been created, it is stupid to assume that Beckett and Castle would not shoot him in the head. I would. (I realize that it is against Standards and Practices rules to actively shoot someone in the face on TV. It is only allowed if you come upon the dead body later. But, still ...) This no doubt made it very dramatic, but it is still outside the normal bounds of suspension of disbelief for this show. I LOVE this show, but this scenario is ridiculous.

My favorite episode, which for me would be on a short list of best ever episodes, is the Hamptons one, "Murder, He Wrote." This was my least favorite episode. Generally I don't like any show's episodes where the characters are suspects, although this one at least tried to not have everyone doubt everything they ever knew about Castle. Still, the DA was particularly frothing at the mouth, when I have a feeling cops and DA's actually try to work together mostly. It also makes me wonder if there's ever been a rich, internationally respected/successful, happy father happy son (daughter and mother both happy and pleased he's their father/son too) with a hot girlfriend who adores him who's ever barb-wired (or some equivalent) a coed to the ceiling?
Favourite scene - Can´t stick with one, so... the handing hold between bars, the moment Kate had to cuff him in the cell and the library scene.
Lanie - Honestly, I didn´t like that she questioned Kate if she was sure, but don´t think she believed Castle was guilty.
3XK - He crossed my mind, but I didn´t figure the way he would make it; and I´m sure he´s still alive!
Favourite episode - After the storm and Probable cause, for diferent reasons, it´s hard for me to pick one. I wouldn´t say I have a least favourite, because this season has been so amazing, but if I had to pick one it would be cloudy with a chance for murder...
5. Best: 3rd Worst: 5th
My favorite scene- Rick and Kate holding hands thru the jail cell. I don't think Laine ever doubted Rick. She was going my the facts that she had seen. Least Favorite Episode-Cloudy with a chance of Murder. Just didn't fit Rick and Kate. And Rick wouldn't have even let the girl in his loft to start with. Rick knows Kate's insecure. Favorite Episode-Has to be Proable Cause. Now that's the Rick and Kate...we love. Their humor, banter and the love they have. And the team stood together....even Gates. My all time favorite episode will be when Kate says I love you to Rick!
I'll need to review past episodes. I don't remember 3XK. I must admit, even though I knew Catle couldn't have done it (the series would end), I was anxious to see what happened. I missed how 3XK got into Castle's apartment. I loved tje library scene. They are so cute together in the romantic scenes.
"PROBABLE CAUSE" WOWs (WAVES OF WEIRDNESS ) - viewers "mirrored" a state of mind normally not associated with CASTLE - unpleasant anticipation. Maybe previews not handled well? Created an "I don't want to watch.."vs "Can't wait 'til Monday." Amazing group of followers - international, all age groups - crazy smart & talented bunch. Part of CASTLE's charm lies in trusting it's creators to lead us into a WORLD OF FICTION with an underlying promise of MAGIC. We need to believe BECKETT runs in STILETTOS, not a hair out of place, her wounds healing without leaving a scar. We need SERENITY from our ruggedly handsome writer RICHARD CASTLE, always willing to believe in the possibility of magic & double rainbows. We have fallen under a spell called CASTLE - a gift from the universe to buffer our reality. CASTLE & BECKETT will make it - the cast & crew have the talent - the viewers have THE AUDACITY OF HOPE - WIN/WIN situation - SERIOUSLY...ALWAYS :)
Favorite scene: Hands down, the library scene. My wife and I watch the show, and this was eerily reminiscent of a "reunion" we had during our dating days!
Beckett doubts: The detective part of her HAD to acknowledge the evidence. The girlfriend part of her believed in him 100%.
Lanie questioning: Like others have said, she's being a good friend by serving as devil's advocate. Don't blame Lanie at all; her friend was hurting.
Knew it was 3XK: Had it narrowed down to 3XK or the senator.
Tyson survived: If this was real life, that many bullets + the fall would kill or critically injure. But, this is TV, so...HELL YES he's alive!
Best/least ep: "After the Storm." I don't think there's been a least favorite for me; yet, if anyone truly has a 'least' on their lis, then...WHY ARE YOU HERE? ;o)
Castle should wear a baseball cap more often.....sexy look!
He has always been able to shoot like that. In one episode, he and Kate were at the shooting range, and they had a bet on whether she could teach him to shoot well enough to win, and he screwed up a shot or two and then nailed the target fast with the remaining shots. Her face was priceless.
There is also the episode where they captured the man who eventually killed Roy Montgomery. He shot the gun out of his hand, or something like that, and his comment linked it back to Firefly ... "I was aiming for his head." But his previous shooting at that range made it clear he is a dead shot. Of COURSE he is! Considering everything else he has learned for his writing, that would have been one of the very first things he mastered.
This entire season so far has been great - the acting has been superlative - my only question is this .... where & how did Castle learn how to shoot a gun the way he did in this episode. He's a writer & where is that little vest that says "writer" on it - I don't believe I have seen it yet this season.
