Where r you downloading? IPTorrents or EZTV does not have it. PLEASE!!
bah never mind its some damn rar with a password shit... they made it look like a normal eztv torrent
back to the episode.
very good interaction between merideth and kate, and the writers -HOPEFULLY- have setup a new arc setup potential...castle's past, specifically his father.
lets see what do we know:
martha (mother) "does not know"
cia agent that was "bad guy(WOMAN ACTUALLY)" did a dad reference about him(castle) being allowed access to the CIA
other than that. nothing that i can think of offhand

Not that they are allowing invites which would help in this situation, but BTN constantly has the 720p version of Castle up around 5:15pm pacific time every new episode. And it doesn't even air here until 10pm! I was done watching by 6pm last night. So if you're having issues getting episodes, look around for invites at other sites you are on (I know the What.CD power user forum used to have one).
Great episode as always. Ryan and Esposito are two of the best supporting characters ever. It always amazes me how much the ex looks like Alexis too.
Nathan Fillion won favorite dramatic tv actor @ the people's choice awards tuesday
Castle won favorite tv crime drama as well
Castle the Esposito story..
Was good but quite the filler. Almost no funny.
As much as I like Ryan and esposito I just couldn't get into this one. I felt like it was missing the back and forth that I really enjoy from those 2.
Castle re-evaluating his hairstyle in the box was funny. I like Esposito, but this one was yawn worthy.
Are they laying the groundwork for an Espo spinoff?
Just got the first issue of the Castle comic about the "A Calm Before Storm" book and noticed in the first page it has the line
which has me wondering now if the first few books about Storm are actually based on his father given what we know at this stage and so the comic and/or Beckett's knowledge of the books in the show universe will slowly be used to unravel things about him.
season 4 episodes 15 and 16 pandora/linchpin is the episode where we meet the female CIA agent that Castle Followed for a year or so ~10 years before.
in the 2nd episode(linchpin) the Agent says -essentially i do not have the exact quote- the only reason why he(Castle) was allowed access to her(CIA Agent-who ended up being a double agent/the bad guy) was because of who his father was. castle goes, you know who my father is, and she just looks at him, says something like naturally. i will review that episode tonight to double check my recall.
But I sense bad things coming for Alexis...
week off next week.
i agree srathor.
on a whim i grabbed the 4 nikki heat books, ok books, liked how i'd read a scene in the book and picture how it was in the show
I can't believe Kelly Hu is almost 45.
I liked how they brought backa character from an old episode. I have noticed that they also have lone vengeance cop every so often in the episodes fora Cameo, next episode we get the senator is back.....
Spoiler casting newsSpoiler:
martha Claims not to know who the father is.
however....there is a chance that this will be a fake father(like that soap opera episode where the woman who died had a woman claiming but was not the mother).
in the castle series of books, Heat's Mother was a spy working for the CIA & was killed...so who knows maybe we'll find out that the pandora claim by the double agent was true that Castle's father was/is a spy associated with the CIA....Spoiler:
episode 13 avail on torrents been out for ~60 minutes, airs in 15 minutes-i'm waiting to watch on my tv
google castle s05e13 torrent
Ok on Recoil
the Tension was Palatable in the room with bracken & beckett/castle, the hard stares, etc.
Gates now knows Something is going on between Beckett and Bracken, liked the tension on becketts decision about how to go about the case evidence.
Loved castle's comment to Bracken at the end.
alexis is -apparently- leaving. not sure how, rumors are to europe etc but comments seem to suggest she is not going to be a regular anymore.
either next week or the week after is going to be the first part of a 2 parter where it may be her last episode. (she elopes with the new guy?) rumor has in the 2 parter she is going to be kidnapped/abducted.
also the persistant stana is pregnant rumor is around....again
they had one in 2009 2010 2011 and 2012 .....

blurb i read about the 2 parter.... next week and the week after. this week is V-Day (and yes i have the episode already) next week is first part of 2 parter...
alexis IS getting kidnapped.
Gina Torres out of nowhere!
I avoid the "next week" trailers but the storyline is getting spoilered everywhere so oh well! Presumably this is what drags Castle's dad into the frame.
I caught the trailer...
one thing i have noticed about Castle, they take concepts from movies and other tv shows and incorporate them into the weekly show. i've noticed die hard, and several other shows/movies.
2 parter imo is going to be somewhat based on....Taken. damn i want to see the show now, it could be awesome. he does know weaponry(crack shot WHEN he choses.), maybe he has a warehouse loft full of...Gear.
baldwin was the crazy violent cop in season 4 episode 21-headhunters, he played detective ethan slaughter.
Aw man totally forgot about that. Over the top
i rewatched episode 5 of this season, the castle frame episode
i caught the name on 3xk's uniform....the name badge was....J. Rook- J.(jameson) Rook is the reporter from Castle's nikki heat Books
2 parter starts tonite. can get ~2hrs before airtime if you know where to look. (eztv.it being one of them)
Fuck, Castle is a scary mother fucker when he's pissed.
oh i agree,
damn did he look...cold.
Great episode. I don't want to wait a whole week now /sigh. Although, Now next episode we need Castle to fly to paris, meet up with Liam Neeson & just have 43 minutes of explosions, guns and car chases. I'm also keeping my fingers crossed we have Castle on the phone with the guy in charge and he gives some sick ass monologue.
Castle: I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I have tons of money. I'm also with my friend who has a very particular set of skills; skills he has acquired over a very long career. Skills that make him a nightmare for people like you. He's trained Batman, Obi Wan, and Darth Vader. He is both Aslan and Zeus...and he punches wolves. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. We will not look for you, we will not pursue you. But if you don't, we will look for you, we will find you, and we will kill you.
Head Boss Dude: [after a long pause] Good luck.
Yeah....something like that.
Their two part episodes are always so good. Such a good start to what could potentially be their best.
Great episode, can't wait for the next part. I do wish they would have taken it somewhere other than Paris, especially if the whole angle ends up being a sex slave deal.
Is it just me or was the actor that played the driver the same as the one who played wash from firefly?
Not the same guy. They do look somewhat similar though.
so far they have had from firefly on last week- gina torres and baldwin last season.
they also have had SEVERAL from star trek (various series)-gates, worf, the doc from umm voyager(the one that was a hologram), frakes, the ferengi damn forget his name, a few others....
they also have had at least 3 from Buffy the vampire slayer (amnesia guy from fifth bullet, from tick tick tick & boom the black guy, the fbi ex-boyfriend from season 1 episodes 9 and 10)
they have had 3? from Chuck As well. (baldwin, the nun-general on chuck and gina castles agent-was in one chuck episode)
at least one from battlestar galactica (the scifi channel version) demming
oh ya one thing i noticed, Gates, Definately knows something is up between the two of them, but is ignoring it. she DELIBRATELY looked away from castle and beckett when they are in the office holding hands.
Last edited by Lenardo; 02-19-2013 at 05:35 PM.
Ha yeah, I thought they were heading towards "Beckett, go home with him, he needs someone to look after him tonight." and then Gates just looks at her as Beckett looks astonished. Anything other than that kind of reveal is going to make Gates look a chump when they do finally bring it more out into the open.
Surely comic Castle or someone on the team will make some kind of Liam Neeson joke next week.
I quite liked how they slow played Alexis being involved, it was a much better plot than I expected after being burned by most of the two parters. Decently played FBI agent as well, no hint of betrayal and actually seems concerned about helping them. How refreshing for drama tv
Honestly, i didn't like the fbi guy that much, don't know why. something to me seemed off.
fillion was awesome in the episode, the emotion on his face @the Van scene. choked me up with the agony in his voice @seeing the blood.(of course i am easy to choke up, wife calls me a wuss i cry at sad parts in movies).
my one nitpick for the whole episode:
WHY THE FUCK DIDN'T THE BODYGUARD DODGE --he is a highly trained special forces operative. Dying means you FAILED. Live & you can Succeed at your mission.
going to watch the episode again @9 next week so as to get the 2 parter in one "session"
My personal theory, which others have, they have it backwards, Alexis was the one kidnapped, Sarah was the bystander.....
This theory is a stupid theory and I will be wildly disappointed if it pans out.
Yeah but everyone knows Castle's dad shows up in the next episode (was in the promo at end of show, so not like they are trying to keep it a secret). If Sophia Turner was right and he is CIA, it is possible they kidnapped Alexis to try to draw him out. Probably specializes in middle east affairs or something. I find it too convenient that the bad guys were monitoring Alexis's video blog if she was not the real target.
Feh, I guess. Really stupid still if the friend is just a red herring.
naw that is the "twist" all the episodes have. like sophia being the double agent 2? years ago. the other taxi driver being the terrorist(american to boot), etc.
i've seen the promo pictures of the episode and castle's dad is bad ass with a gun...

I'm on the side of it being Alexis they were after. Too much coincidence. However, they haven't ruled out that they were just kidnapped to be sold as sex slaves.
You guys are talking me in to it=/ Not liking it, just it being where they are going. And I hate it. They always do the misdirection thing, they have to of course. I just dislike the insanely huge level of coincidence involved, even if it is planned coincidence to throw them off. Just....guh. But whatever, it will still be good.
My main reasoning is that if Sara was really the target, and not Alexis then there would have been zero reason for taking Alexis with them and not just killing her along the way. Having to deal with 2 hostages would be exponentially harder than 1 and obviously they wouldn't have killed her at the grab as that would have gotten them noticed and on the radar a lot sooner than they were.
I guess it's possible that they were both the targets for the reasons of El-Mari's enemies and Castle's father but I think that goes into even worse territory (eg El-Mari being a CIA collaborator in Egypt and his handler being Castle's dad). Sex trade is also an outside possibility, villains saw Alexis around campus and figured they'd make good bank off her, was watching vlog and grabbed Sara as well as she was also cute when opportunity arose....as said though, would expect them to have been somewhere other than Paris for sex trade, at least somewhere that they likely wouldn't be able to actually communicate easily with people if they escaped.
I hate all your ideas because it might just be true. Castle's dad getting involved could be simply explained by him keeping a very discrete eye on the family from a distance and then seeing his granddaughter get kidnapped gets him wound up enough to break cover.
As for the sex slaves thing, they couldn't steal people closer to Paris? That's a terrible theory based on watching a certain film
I hope that it is based around Sara and they kept Alexis alive after finding out who she is, they can keep Sara to kill in response to Egyptian shenanigans and why not make some money from the rich American girl, that won't get in their way of revenge.
Of course, all this really means is that 3/4 of the way through next weeks episode 3XK walks into their cell and says "Allahu Akbar" and laughs evilly, twirling his newly grown moustache and beard.
things to consider- why has there been no ransom demand, they have been gone for what 3? days now and nothing, definately NOT ransom involved- if wanting to Kill Sarah for revenge due to egypt- they would not be in PARIS for that, they would be in Egypt & they would not be taking CARE of them.
the 2 main options would be
Sex Trade- imo not likely since Castle would have found out about it.....and they would not have their Clothes.
Who Tortured the kidnapper umm hanson?@ the farm?..Castle's Father is my guess.
now if 3XK walks in next episode i'll laugh, but no, it's something to do with Castle's Dad which is why they got kidnapped.
Might be nothing, but isn't Alexis' mom in Paris?
For a vacation, she was(if i remember correctly) supposed to spend a week with alexis in paris, but alexis got mono- then she went to paris, but due to the fact that there have been 5 episodes since.
timeline wise, episode BEFORE was the christmas episode
plus she is supposed to go with alexis means this is january time line wise alexis definately would not go during school so the month winter break from ~xmas thru end of month. say 2nd week in january for the trip
we have had the valentines episode, and now this episode
so, no Deep Fried Twinkie should not be in Paris anymore...
Is it wrong that I want to watch Alexis and Sara console each other in this time of crisis?
oh and ABC just Ordered another Episode for this season, bringing it up to 24 for the season like Season 2 and 3 (1 had 12, 4 had 23)
Last edited by Lenardo; 02-21-2013 at 08:06 PM.
thinking on the last episode some-and it occurred to me...
when alexis is talking to the guard, the offscreen person says - in arabic- we have company-
it WAS NOT THE FBI!...it was the person/persons who killed hanson because later on in the cell
sara:"it's been hours"
A: my dad taught me--when i was 10..click
they explore, alexis goes into the room with the computer and it is streaming the FBI going into the farm- why would they be replaying the stream?
means the editors did make a continuity problem in the editing process
if the stream was live, then castle would not have had time to get to the farm then back to get the phone call from alexis-which happened ~30seconds after she passes the computer........oopsie?
That bugged me right away, I just assumed it was not supposed to be live. Or they fucked up. I like your idea of it being someone else though, Daddy Castle specifically who initially found the farm and tortured the guy.
SO! Alexis was not the target BUT Castle's dad is still getting involved because he found out she was taken. I like this theory way way way way way better than the Arabic speaking kidnappers COINCIDENTALLY took the daughter of a filthy rich Egyptian with enemies over there back to a city with a ton of Muslims.
Two other sneak peaks on you tube. The third is the one to watch.
If only Liam would have guest stared hahaha
Was an awesome episode... I am watching again now
Well I called the French guy.
Well holy shit.
Also called the book delivery.
Still a great two parter.
"Who does he think he is, Liam Neason?"
"Please, he is barely Ashley Judd."
I'm a big fan of the actor that double-crossed him, so I was a little disappointed in that respect, but he typically plays someone with questionable morals so I suppose I should have expected it.
Glad they got a Liam Neeson reference in there, although I agree that it would have been fucking awesome if he made a cameo.
Was a little underwhelmed by the "Welcome Home!" party with just Beckett and mom, but I get it, and it didn't ruin the episode or anything.
Castle getting to meet his dad was pretty neat. I liked it when dad reminded him to pick up the money, and the fake name.
Decent episode, one of the better two parters.
Laughably bad green screen showing Castle in "Paris", I guess they could only afford to fly Alexis there to film her scenes?!
Nice to see Todd from Stargate Atlantis pop up again, shame he ended up brown bread.
ONLY people from the show to go to paris was alexis and castle's stunt double.
imo one of the more powerful scenes in the show was
Beckett interviewing hanson's girlfriend
was just awesome...

Yeah, the green screen shit with Castle in Paris was weak tea. Really pulled you out of an otherwise excellent episode.
For anyone interested, Castle was the most watched show in the monday night primetime slot according to nielson( ~10.7 million viewer)... and renewal is pretty much a sure thing for next year. for the year, ratings/viewership for castle is up vs last year.
Well, it's 5 seasons in and is still going strong. Hell, I actually think it's getting better too. I love this show.
New episode Monday. "the ring" based, wes craven in the episode.
In other news, 2 episodes until100. April1, which is also the castle birthday episode, based on rear window is episode100
A Ryan episode and didn't he do well!
I enjoyed the one they did last season as well. Ryan and Esposito are awesome and deserve to take the lead role sometimes.
ryan was Really good in this one.
and they are starting to show more of the relationship with Beckett & Castle. though
i am sick of the I like you even more bit from Beckett..
though i think that like will turn to love you even more soon..
what no comments on last nights 100th episode?
I loved the episode.
I was hoping they would do something fun for April 1st. They did not disappoint.
This show is constantly entertaining. That was a very cool episode.
Watching it now. The Charlie's Angels gag at the start had me rolling.
3 ways i can think of off hand.
THEY had a spotter watching Castle's Apartment
they setup a Nanny Cam that was viewing the living room and had someone watching.
way #3 they planned on repeating the "Day" until castle noticed & we all know that Beckett would be the first person he called.
The thing that bothered me was pretty much lying to the audience. If it was all staged why was she showing up to work acting concerned about his health ect
In my opinion, she was not worried about his health, she was worried that they went too far with the fake murder & he would do something "stupid". castle was extremely upset with her just prior to the worried at work scene for not believing him. she was worried that she was going to have to spoil the surprise/call off the present due to how it was affecting him.
if you watch the episode again, when alexis is there with beckett & castle, alexis has a silly grin on her face when castle is not looking at her. also at times beckett has a silly grin when he cannot see her and they are interacting. hell she gave it away at the end when - EXACTLY after the guy gets the soda from the cabinet, she goes, you want a drink from the fridge and she emphasized the from the fridge part.
i called the fake murder back when it was revealed that they were doing a "rear window" episode. i said, it is going to be a fake murder using martha's students utilizing an apartment that one of her students has, the ONLY thing i got wrong was that beckett was the one that rented the apartment.
oh and beckett finally said the Love word to castle, whenever she says it is one of the things she likes about him, this time she said love instead of like.
oh and i love how martha is calling her katherine.
just like martha calls castle Richard. shows that beckett is Family now.
repeat of the final frontier episode then a straight 5 weeks of new episodes to end the season
then Still (bomb episode- from hints, apparently beckett trips a pressure/motion sensitive bomb and cannot Move.

Castle is back tonight with another episode directed by Johnathon Frakes. The subject matter is...Spoiler:
due to the bombing castle was not on here so i watched it the torrent way....
Laughing @ Alexis & the Fridge...i had to play that scene over,,,and over...
I've been watching Castle since it began. It used to be hard for me to figure out who the bad guy was before the big reveal, but for about the last season or two I've been able to figure it out about 70% of the time. They have a formula, and it's pretty obvious once you figure it out.
