Woooooohooooooo!!!! Last night’s episode of Castle, “Dead from New York,” marked the 150th episode of the show! This episode, written by longtime Castle writer Terence Paul Winter and directed by Jeannot Szwarc, was a “classic Castle” episode filled with a lot of good laughs, some touching moments, and several throwbacks to episodes and seasons past….oh, yeah, and there was a pretty twisty case thrown in the mix, too.
We hope you will join us tonight on Stana Talk Radio as we celebrate and discuss the 150th episode of Castle!
Here are tonight’s discussion questions:
1. What are your thoughts on last night’s episode? What were some favorite lines/scenes/moments that stood out to you for one reason or another?
2. The underlying storyline with Martha became the heart of last night’s episode. Did you enjoy that storyline? What did you like (or not like) about it?
3. Going into the season finale, what are some thoughts you would like to share about the season as a whole? What were some high points of season 7 for you? What were some things you would change if you could?
4. What are you hoping for when it comes to the season finale? **Please try to be as spoiler-free as possible out of respect to our spoiler-free friends!**
I loved everything about this episode. High points:
• The way Rick coached Martha tied in at the end with his getting Kate to take a bow.
• The creepy actress mimicking Kate.
Kate: “She’s almost as bad as Natalie Rhodes.”
Rick: “Give her time.”
• Smarmy actor and jealous-but-not-miserable Rick
• “Yes, and…”
• The puppet attorney
I thought last night’s episode was so very Castle. The stuff we love about this duo. Not a mytharc, not angsty, just the COW with the normal dynamics of the team. Loved the Rick/Martha interaction, the tone carried over from “The Time Of Our Lives” .
I totally loved the Castle PI hattrick. The perception that Casket wasn’t working together? It was just that perception.
The finale is a conundrum for me. I think because I assumed that Castle’s disappearance was because of his Hollander Woods experience. That’s been debunked.
So, there will be resolution in Castle’s 11-year-old Hollander Wood experience, but not his missing 2 months.
Meh, it’s television. Pretty sure Western civilization isn’t hanging in the balance.
