Castle Season 5 Premiere “After the Storm”

I’m assuming by now that you’ve all seen the Castle Season 5 premiere. (If not, what are you doing here? Go watch it!) I was lucky enough to see it a few weeks ago and I’m still considering the implications of the episode. Here’s exactly what I thought about the episode.

Concerning Castle and Beckett

  • The first scene was a perfect. They had sex. They are awkward. No one can know.
  • Things are (pretty much) the same. They aren’t making out all over or really gooey in-love. They still work a case. They still solve a case.
  • Perfect balance of humor and serious-ness.
  • They’re them and the new aspect of their relationship doesn’t change that.
Concerning the case
  • The case is solved…(ish?) It was enough closure for me to be happy, but not so much that they don’t have anywhere to go

Where do we go from here?

  • If every episode is like this one, it’s great. Just sprinkle in a few Castle/Beckett relationship-y scenes per episode.
  • I don’t like for people to get together and have it change their whole lives. That’s why this episode succeeded and I believe that the show won’t “jump the shark” because of it

What did you think of the premiere you’ve been waiting for?

She likes comic books, photography, reading on the Metro bus and wearing cold weather clothes despite the actual temperature in Southern California.
