Who knew all this about Detective Kevin Ryan?! Wow! Certainly the #Castle showrunner Andrew W. Marlowe did and the writer of this Ryan-centric episode [long time Castle guru], Terence Paul Winter. Through this murder we learned some very interesting back stories on Ryan – who’s past was NOT quite as simple as perhaps we thought. We learned he was deep undercover with the Irish mob before joining Beckett's team and even had a tumultuous pre-Jenny romance.. <insert self face slap on that one>
This episode was directed by Rob Hardy and regardless of the murder; I really REALLY wanted a cupcake long after the episode from eyeing them at the beginning. Hm, I wonder if those “non samples” were all just props and sprayed with multiple chemicals to look so delicious to us in their non-consumable state.
On tonight’s STR we would love to hear what YOU thought about last night’s episode revolving around some of Kevin’s history and Jenny’s present life with him together. The bonus thread throughout the episode was learning of a positive shift in the confidence of Beckett in her relationship with Castle as demostrated by her fun teasing throughout resulting in new discovery about why Castle had the intense desire to write. Hope you can join us to talk about all this and those VERY thought provoking Caskett lines at the end of the episode.
Castle: “What happens if you don’t like what you see?”
Beckett:“What happens if you don’t let me look?”
