I thought it was pretty good except for that silly Scooby Doo ending.

Next new episode we finally get to see Castle and Beckett kiss. Plus they revisit the murder of Becketts mom.

Y'know, a lot of us deliberately shut off the previews so we won't know stuff like this! It would be a courtesy to not post them here without spoiler tags!

The AVS policy says that anything from the episode and the previews is fair game - no spoiler tags necessary. People do it all the time. It's fun and within the rules of play.

It looks like next week will be a repeat of 3XK. When does the next new ep air?

Edit: Answering my own question, it looks like it's just one week off. Knockdown is scheduled for Monday, January 24th.

Interesting, the official ABC Media press site has nothing listed for the 24th.

I'm sure it's somewhere, but I don't know where it appears in writing. A moderator posted the official AVS policy once in the Chuck thread (when I made a post that WAS a spoiler - though a minor one). If you want to, you could PM a moderator and ask the question.

Yep, the policy is common across all the show threads. Ones for shows like True Blood that are loosely based on books are hard, because you can't talk about what WOULD be upcoming . Once a show airs though on the east coast it is open game.

Someday maybe I'll actually WATCH my projector...

This comes up in many threads over time, just search a moderators name for the standard response. Such as:

You gotta draw a line and that's where it was drawn .

I would say that the rules here go out of their way to make sure even the most paranoid spoilerphobes don't get their panties in a twist over anything like real spoilers being revealed. That's why whining about discussing a previously run preview of a show strikes me as, well, silly.

What I really liked about this weeks episode was that as soon as I thought that one twin killed the other and took his place castle goes out and tells beckett that that is what he thinks happened I also liked that they did not go the predictible route on this and have it about one twin killing the other.

You can never judge a show by its pilot episode or the half season following it.

Yeah, I hate that "previews are fair game" rule - I've dropped out of threads altogether because they were spoiling too much (Lost). But Castle is light-hearted enough that it's one show that I sometimes watch the previews.

The twitter feeds of several actors and the show itself are repeatedly tweeting about how Monday's episode is "bring your friend to Castle day." I decided to see what this was all about. Apparently ratings are declining and they are using social networking to raise 'em back up. Here's the link from Twitter: http://castletv.net/promote-knockdown-challenge

Apparently there is something extra good about this coming episode...

It was a good episode and as much as they take liberties about realism, the gun fight kinda just killed me...

Girl cop with hand gun > Professional Hitman with auto assault rifles

... Really?

Are you saying that a man with a hand gun would have been better off than Beckett?

Assault rifles are not meant to be used in such closed spaces.

In any event, she was just shy of being shot.

Did you miss the part where she was about to be killed? It's not like Beckett and the assassin had a drawn out confrontation. She basically ran in and started shooting, went for cover, got off a few shots to keep the assassin down after he'd picked up his scoped rifle, and was about to be sniped when Castle knocked him out.

LOL Professional Hitman with a scope that had the drop on Becket wouldn't take that long... Thanks for helping my argument. Also, that's like saying Hand guns can be more accurate close up or in a small room over an assault riffle... ?

Enjoyed the episode last night...I am not too caught up in the whole gun battle thing...got a laugh out of who the hitman was though...guess Mac had some tough times since the Unit broke up and is now a hired contract killer...kinda funny.

Good episode overall. Castle's "That was incredible!" and immediate coverup was nicely done. Beckett looked great, as usual. Ryan and Espisito got the bum end, but they'll recover.

But why does it seem like every show has to have some kind of ongoing background storyline? Who killed Beckett's mom? We have the episode where she finds the killer, but doesn't find out who hired him. That's for another episode. Then we get the episode where we find out who hired him, but it was part of larger scheme. That's for another episode. We keep getting one step closer, but it becomes frustrating when the writers can keep adding more and more steps. We don't know if there will be one more step and they can wrap it up, or ten more. We can find out more about the larger scheme, and who's running it, but it will turn out that it was part of something else, an even larger operation. And so on.

I know, I know. It's to keep the "suspense" up and keep us watching. But at this point, there is no suspense for me because I just don't care anymore. Knowing I'm being manipulated like that just annoys me more than anything else.

Don't get me wrong; I still like the show and will keep watching, but it has nothing to do with "Who killed Beckett's mom?" It's episodic television. We have character growth, we have the evolving/developing relationship between Castle and Beckett, we have other characters relationships, we just don't need a "grand story arch" to give it cohesion. It would be fine without.

Wow, you naysayers. I thought that was a great "payoff" episode. At the point "It says Captain", I too was like oh Sh-- this is gonna be good on a whole new level. Loved it! Beckett and Castle did a little faux-smooching...or just how faux was it? I love how they tease their relationship. As much as I want that payoff for them, it is so much more fun to watch them separated. Reminds me of the old Lois & Clark days. And before anyone hates on that...stop. I loved that show.

So yah, Mac is the hitman. Too bad. But I'm glad to see The Unit guys (some of them) working. I can't for the life of me remember the character name, but he was the newest guy to the unit; green eyes. He's a recurring patient on Grey's Anatomy right now.

The only thing I notably missed tonight was the comedy. This was definitely a more serious episode. I don't mind the background storyline at all. Among other things, it provides an opportunity to get deep with characters, not just "manipulating the audience to keep watching".

Still watching the ep, so I haven't read the previous posts yet, but - if Hal Lockwood's record was clean, why were his prints in the system? Should have said something about him being former military or some other reason his prints are on file.

*done now

Great ep overall. Silly to complain about the guy would have gotten the shot off. How lame would it have been to just have Beckett completely behind cover when Castle tackles him?

Uh, yeah, exactly. Not so much "accurate", though, as "wielded accurately and quickly". What was the last range used for the assault rifle? I'm hardly an expert, but how long does it take to go from 500' to 20' with a scope? (as compared to pointing a pistol) I know it's damn hard with a mega camera lens to quickly shift zoom and focus a long way. Seemed a little strange he was using the scope in a room, anyway. Can a 'normal' scope even track down to that range?
