That was a nice surprise! Getting up in the morning and finding these right before going to work.
Ok the 4th sneak peek is the best. Oh please let these two have deal with their issues soon. I like how Kate opened up to him and it was sweet how he reassured her. Stana smile while he is talking about nikki heat is adorable. I'm not in the united states so I don't know what is the protocol for internship there, but for someone to intern especially In a medical capacity wouldn't the person need to be pre med student first. They won't just let someone out of high school intern for such job right. I mean this isn't filing documents. And wouldn't she need to sign waivers as she is at crime scenes. I mean the police always cordon off bystanders and the general public when there is a case, how can an 18 year old be there with no real jurisdiction what so ever or qualifications. Don't mean to be picky, but I think this is not authentic. Sorry Andrew Marlowe.
She was just doing paperwork, and as a legal adult at 18, she could easily sign her own waivers. It's a girl with a clipboard. Not doing the exam.
But really think about it... A writer following a detective, getting into all of the situations that Castle & Beckett get into. Not very authentic either. I highly doubt that they would allow it in 'real life'.
Oh wow, nice sneak peeks. I hope that conversation in the car actually effects them both and it isnt just some random talk. I mean the sneak peeks sometimes hype us up and then we get nothing. Remember the hand rubbing scene...well anyway love kates face. She finally admits in an indirect way that she is JEALOUS.And yeah the alexis interning doesnt seem realistic. Just saying...
Love the sneek peeks especially the last one. Looks like its gonna be a great episode. Can't wait for Monday. Love the look on castles face wen he is talking to alexis so cute. I guessed the black hoods wuld be so that they didn't know we're they were being taken it kinda made sense it was gonna be that lol. Maybe in the last sneek peak they will stop about stuff but wen they start drowning they bring it up again and start talking about feelings. Anyway roll on Monday
OMG Alexis! This is going to be great i hope it's on a semi permanent basis.I loved the Car scene Kate wants to be angry at him for falling into line behind the old muse but he's arguing it so reasonably saying it's for the sake of national security she has to accept it. Leaving Kate with no choice but to come clean about her insecurities about being a muse and what it all means.anon@01:13explaining the internship is easy given that she has interned with the NYPD before, she's more than likely restricted to clerical work only (hence the clipboard) and she is well acquainted with her supervisor.As far as realism is concerned the premise for this show is so far beyond the scope of realism it's laughable. It's plausible, not realistic just like the internship.N-From Canada
I think the last sneak peek shows how far they've come in their relationship - Beckett is willing to talk about what bothers her and admits she might have overreacted a little bit. It's proof of how comfortable they are with each other. Then again, that brief moment will probably come to an end, once she finds out this relationship wasn't just professional (which Castle conveniently doesn't tell her just then). Judging from the Canadian promo, Beckett's jealousy will be back in full force: "I am not gonna be rescued by your girlfriend!" I think it will be difficult for Beckett to find out Castle might have had a fling with his former muse - she'll probably ask herself if this is a pattern with him and if, once she's given in, he'll lose interest and leave her (Stana hinted at that). Granted, it's crazy because we all know it's different with Kate. Hell, deep down she knows that, too, but I can see where she's coming from and that this might trigger her insecurities.
I totally agree with you. She is not going to take well to it. Hell I wouldnt either so it's perfectly understandable.
I'm asking this as a question, so I'd love it if someone should tell me, if they know: Do we have anything to suggest that "something more" occurred between Castle and Sophia other than an assumption made by Kate?
No, we don't have definitive proof that Castle and Sofia ever had anything more that a brief partnership. We do, however, know a few details suggesting that Castle might have slept with Sofia. Our favorite detectives would call it circumstantial evidence:-Beckett calls Sofia Castle's "girlfriend." This suggests that Kate has discovered since the conversation in the car that Castle had something more with Sofia, and this is Kate's jealousy showing through in her own Beckett way. -Castle's history. Castle has changed A LOT since he met Beckett; he's actually grown up quite a bit, but that doesn't change the fact that he was once a playboy ladies man. He got around, and Castle has the tendency to take his work relationships and make romances out of them. Case in point: He married Gina, his publisher. He is in love with Kate, his almost- girlfriend/ muse/ badass detective. We are led to believe that he slept with his agent, Paula, and we know that he once slept with his interior designer. I think we could even count the actress Ellie Monroe here, as he recommended her for the part of Nikki Heat to the Heatwave director after she slept with him. Kate knows about most of these trysts/ relationships, and she's not going to forget about them anytime soon. So when she sees Sofia, she automatically assumes that Castle had a relationship with her, and Kate gets jealous. Of course there's the double whammy when she discovers that Sofia is Castle's old muse, as well. Personally, I hope that Castle and Sofia were never romantically involved. I love my man Castle, but to be honest, his track record is against him right now, and he is in some hot water with our girl Beckett. Good luck, Castle!
All possible, as you say, but still we have no hard evidence. And Ihope it's all in Kate's head. As our writer might say, it's a better story that way.
Love how castle is trying to comfort Beckett, that's so sweet. But Beckett still somehow call Sophia s girlfriend later on so I'm wonrin gif castle is lying here about it just being professional.Hhmm never pegged Alexis to be interested in medicine. She seems more like a journalist or law type. Hope this two parter is good, looks good.
I agree with everyone. That's what progress looks like, THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT TEIR PROBLEMS! Yes. Seriously, Yes.My favourite though would have to be the Alexis one. I'm glad she's getting in on the action and with Lanie too! Lanie is good, Lanie likes Beckett, Lanie can provide a bias Shipper perspective!
THIS. All. Of. This!
It is nice seeing Alexis get some action but what I really want to see Beckett and Lanie hang out. Girl fun you know. Does anyone else think Alexis is just doing this to piss her dad off. Molly said in an interview that Alexis will rebel this season to get attention and we have seen bits of it. Maybe this too. Alexis really doesn't strike me as someone who would want to deal with death as career. I don't know just a thought. I mean she knows castle isn't going to like it much.
Didn't she do her science project on the forensics of spatter patterns? And she was so into it, she couldn't wait for Castle to do it with her?
Yes, I think that part of the reason Alexis is doing it is to get attention. Given the events of "Rise" and "Cops and Robbers," we know that she is still resentful towards Beckett for taking her dad away from her so often and putting him in harm's way. She's an only child with a man-child for a parent. She was used to getting all of his attention, all the time, until Beckett showed up. So the ME job is a way to get back at him a little bit. Let him see what it's like to worry constantly about a person you love. At the same time, this is Alexis, and she is a very smart, mature girl. She's way more mature than most of the 18- year olds that I know, and I doubt she would waste her time with the job solely to piss off her father. She sees the educational value in it, and the angry dad and attention is just an added bonus.
I know what you mean about wanting some "girls' time" for Beckett and Lanie. I actually tweeted Tamala Jones about that about 2 weeks ago..asked her if we're ever gonna get a girls' night out kind of thing...and she replied! She said "It's coming soon!" I hope so! Kate and Lanie are supposed to be really close friends but they hardly ever interact outside of work. It would be really great to see Kate actually share some of her deep and personal feelings about Castle with someone besides her therapist. It would be good for Kate to share some of that stuff with someone who loves her...and it would be good for the audience to get some more insight into what's going on in that head of hers!
The car scene is awesome. Missed those conversations they have while becketts driving and all. Alexis interning? Is she even old enough to do that kind on internship? Seems like that job would require someone with some experience.
Yeah, some people here don't get and intership even having a degree , a master and a postgrade... and this kid, as wonderful as she might be, right out of school, gets it so easily? Wow, US employment issues diring the crisis are nowhere to be seen!
I had a friend that interned with a medical examiner while we were still in highschool. She got the opportunity to sit in on autopsies and go to the scenes. I think as long as you have an in--which Alexis does, being that they all know her and love her--then you can get that kind of internship.I find it totally believable.
As an internship is generally preformed in order to get experience, and Alexis is 18 and has all of her high school credits. Why wouldn't this be appropriate?One thing that might be causing confusion: Alexis is participating in an internship where she observes, and assists with things like retrieving things and filing. She is NOT a medical Intern, the stage following early years of medical school when becoming a doctor. And even if all of the above weren't true? Every week we accept Big Castle following Beckett around, but Little Castle following Lanie around breaks the believability scale? I'm not sure that computes.
Yes, GB, but Big Castle is sexy, and he trails after his equally sexy female counterpart, so we don't care how believable it is ;)
I have a feeling alexis working with lanie will bring castle secret... what if she has a casual talk with lanie and she slips about how worried she is for her father and bam... my mind is buzzing with ideas, is it monday yet?
Cool idea!!!MixiPS.I have lots of ideas too,but I'm afraid they are stupid :(
Hey mixi posts ur ideas. They are probably great. We can build theories on them and try to see a new angle of the show. I doubt their stupid. Come on post them:)
I agree with you all. I like Beckett talks to him about what she thinks, do not just "jealous joke" as in the episode of the museum. But I also have the feeling that he hides some details that will make her angry.. (little flirt?)I look forward for the time when they will make "peace"! :DAlexis at the crime scene .. lol .. I'm sure this will be fun!// sorry for my bad english!
I laughed so hard watching the fourth sneak peek. When Beckett says "I might have been a little taken aback by the fact that you had... researched with someone else." It reminded me of a conversation I had with a ex. The following went basically the same. No, it was different, just as short thing way back then. You're totally better/cooler/more beautiful. Lol Way to tame down the green monster, Castle!
I want to watch these sneak peeks soon bad...it's killing me! Must say No!
Love Sneak Peek #4...it's like first season plus deeper feelings..love it!
I know that the interning isn't necessarily the most realistic thing but a) I think it's really cool and a really nice idea and b) The way I see it they all know Alexis and she worked for Beckett before so I reckon if she asked Lanie instead of going through official channels then Lanie would do it as a favour, even though she is only eighteen
Knowing that Alexis interns for Lanie, does this give way to the "someone" who follows Lanie in the future, as hinted by Tamala in a recent interview?
Yeah I'm pretty sure it is. Though I hope it isn't a permanent thing. I wouldn't want to see castles kid at the morgue or crime scene. It just feels like an adult thin and she s a kid. I like the idea of him talking to his daughter and mother and they asking about cases and him telling them. If everyone is slowly going to join the team as such in some way, it doesn't make sence, and honestly would take the father daughter home moments away.Just my opinion...
Well, she's young, sure but she's 18. And Kate became a cop not a whole lot older than that. I would like to see this be a way for Alexis to gain some new respect for these people and how they connect to her father's life.
In any case, it is nice to see Alexis away from the Castle loft once in a while!
I agree, 6:30! What a cool idea!! Can't wait to see how it transpires!
I think the conversation will effect both of them, given that this is a two- parter and more significant than other "filler" episodes. I know that some people were complaining that they're playing the "jealous Beckett" card again, but given the last sneak peek, I think they're putting a new spin on Kate's jealousy. She has never actually discussed he jealousy with Castle so openly before. In the past, she always tried to hide it, but they are actually having a discussion of their feelings! and we haven't even seen the whole scene yet! This is proof that the Caskett relationship is moving, yes it is slow, but it's getting there. p.s. I feel bad for Kate that she has to hide info from her team. Poor Ryan and Espo (and maybe even Gates, too)
I wonder if gates will find out because if she does she'll kill both of them!
Maybe in the struggle when Gates is trying to kill Caskett, they accidentally kill her out of self defense! Tee hee, jk. That's evil ;)
love the sneak peaks hopefully as we got so many last week we will get some more this week as well lol
I agree with all you about #4. I think it's HUGE that she practically admits her insecurity/jealousy over the CIA lady.r from MN
Confession: because I love the show, I don't wanna be unhappy with aspects of it, but I kinda am. Sometimes I can't help but feel that Alexis is taking on aspects of a Wesley Crusher in how the show uses her, and I'm not always finding it enjoyable. I wanna like her as an intern and the interaction between Alexis and Lanie, but I can't say I'm enthusiastic about the prospect. I like that the show is giving the actors new things to play and mixing up the interactions, but, well... how to explain.Having Alexis involved in a case due the murder of rockstar she liked worked well. Having her blurt out "chiaroscuro" as a plot pivot point that led to the painting and signature of the sniper dude, well, not so much, for me (but the show wins points there for including fine art in a tv genre hell bent on science as holding most answers). Having her now intern, well, if Castle's doing his best not to bristle, I'm not bothering - I have to admit I was surprised to find myself bristling too, lol.I find Alexis (and Martha, and Rick's poker buddies, and Beckett's father for that matter, etc) interesting in being characters who can comment from the outside of things, and prompt Castle to other revelations, and I'm not as keen to see one of them now in the middle of things. Especially not in a two-part feature, which will additionally apparently end on yet another cliffhanger, and I'm hoping Alexis is not playing an even more prominent part in the ep in terms of who becomes imperiled.That said, I hafta admit Cops & Robbers was a great ep, and one of my favorites, because it was one of the few where we got to see Castle as the one to say, I Got This.In the larger scheme of things, it also kinda fits into another tv trend and sometimes pitfall IMO, of becoming rather insular in how it uses its characters. (That also inlcudes the romance of Lanie and Esposito. I kinda think that if other pairings are gonna be used by the show to further poke and comment on Castle and Beckett, then Kevin/Jenny and Esplanie kinda work best as the successful/unsuccessful relationship angels perched one on each shoulder of Caskett, if that makes sense).I just have to admit to a gnawing ambivalence here about some of the approaches the show has taken, and it's causing undue interal discombobulation ;) Heh, sometimes I think the show was easier for me to enjoy when I wasn't so damned invested. Testament to their success at making me more than a casual viewer, and dammit, I think I might be becoming a shipper, lol. Rick Castle as a character is being poked and prodded in a few different ways this season, and I just hope this slant works well :). Cheers for the clips, despite my grumblilng, I also have to say that there looks to be some fun stuff coming up.PPS Is it just me or is ABC actually promoting the show a little better now?
OK, why do I see so much Love and Hurt in Sophia's eyes, this is going to be a torture and fun at the same time to watch!
Maybe, Sophia liked Castle A LOT, but she had to give it up because Castle knows too much about her work, which is suppose to be a secret for spouse/significant other?
I miss these car ride scenes with Castle and Beckett. Glad to see it happening. But I'm guessing the discussion will stop there as another car slams into Beckett's car, pushing them towards the open water.
I Donno if that's wen the car slams into the water coz ormally the sneak peeks happen in the first like 10 or so minute so the conversation might carry on bit longer but could b wrong
IDK, we usually get a few from the very beginning, and then 1 or 2 from somewhere in the middle. Like in "Till Death," we got to see part of the "numbers" talk, and that happened about midway thru the episode. If the car does go into the water right after this, however, it might not be our cliffhanger. Maybe the cliffhanger is something more exciting! (I have no clue what is more exciting than Caskett trapped alone together, but, hey, you never know.)
The one thing and one thing only I don't like about the show is that they never show the car rides anymore or what they say in the elevator etc. thoses are what I really like to see in the show. I like to see what they say to eachother when they are alone
You know I think Beckett opening up about her jealousy reminds me of the end scene in The Dead Pool (3x21)where castle admits his jealousy. Both intially deny being jealous but then cave and each are appreciative of one anothers honesty.I think this is good progress.
Did anyone notice in the sneak peek #3 that castle called her Sophia Turner. But she is listed on the credits as Sophia Conrad....Maybe she's married....divorced...available.. interested in castle or just a good push for the castle/Beckett relationship...Don't you think?
I saw that too. If she married Alex Conrad, I think I'll die laughing.
@GBHaha! I just sat here like a moron laughing to myself for about two minutes! Wouldn't that be a funny twist? Alex Conrad get's a muse, then ends up marrying her!
Lol Now that would be a good twist. The writer gets his muse. :)
Oh that is haliarious...actually now I hope it's that. Wouldn't it be just so funny if Sophia is married to Alex Conrad.
Beckett would have never admitted to Castle that she was "taken back" by the fact that he had another muse, earlier in their relationship. So I am going to look at this as progress. Let's hope that there is even more progress some where in this two-parter!!!!!
What does castle say at the end of sneak peak 4 : Besides, Nikki Heat is a far more complex and "nuanced" character. She is! And I’m a far more experienced writer and more .......?Thanks
"...and more mature"*look from Beckett*"one out of two?..."
What does the last line mean, one out of two?
Oh nvm, my brain wasn't thinking straight... He meant the former is true (more experienced) and not the latter (more mature) as Beckett gave him the look. Heh
That was so big for Beckett to admit being insecure about Sophia being his muse. She would normally just play it off like she wasn't but for her to admit that to castle I think that is some good progress. And I hope there's more of where that came from in the rest of the 2 parter. And I love her looks when he is describing how Nikki is so much better than Clara strike. So cute! And I think what happens is so Beckett relaxes after castle reassures her, while working on the case Sophia is like so Rick is following you around, and becketts like ya, and Sophia is like I remembered when he followed me around he was such a good kisser and not a bad boyfriend, then Beckett responds with a fazed yea- wait u and Rick dated? And sophias like ya but mostly are relationship wasn't that deep, we just had fun and slept together... But I'm glad he is doing good. And with this new knowledge Beckett questions what she is in his life and knows she doesnt just want a month relationship with them sleeping together then going their seperate ways. But castle will prove himself to her and I wanna hear him tell Beckett that she is the only muse for him and he turned him into a one muse man.:) anyway srry for my long comment. As for Alexis interning with lanie I don't really have an opinion, I need to watch it first before I can see if it's a good thing. Anyway it would be freaking hilarious if she was married to Alex Conrad. Ok since I put my 2 cents in I'm going to go
I'm actually very interested to see how Alexis's internship plays out. Here's why: In sneak peek #4, Beckett explains that she isn't comfortable keeping secrets from her own people. This means that her people aren't supposed to know about a new lead. "Her people" consist of Gates, Ryan, Espo, Lanie, and now, because of her internship, Alexis. This, I think, could lead to an extremely interesting twist, because, as we know, Alexis is 1.extremely smart and 2. extremely dedicated. If she were to find out something she wasn't supposed to, she could be in a lot of danger, and it would be very interesting to see how Castle reacted to that, and how it impacts his relationship with Beckett.
These are exciting!!! And I don't think Alexis getting an internship with Lanie is unrealistic. She's wicked smart, super ambitious and she's got connections. AND I think this will help her and Castle rekindle their father/daughter closeness. I think Alexis has been feeling left out-- another good reason for her to work with Lanie. She's involved but not overinvolved. I think this will be good. And will add Another dynamic to the show. I was also glad to see that Kate opened up to not only Castle, but to HERSELF about what was bothering her. This may seem small, or tiny, even, but this is real progress, people! All you people who have been griping-- I hope you see her admission for what it is: a huge HUGE step forward. Excited for Monday!!!MTAM(ps-- was it just me or was #3's sound way weird? It kept cutting off... The one with Sophia/Jennifer)
Oh ya i thought prob i have watched the sneak peaks so many times that my ears have given up lol. Hear that part where castle is thinking 'uhhhhh' i dont knw wat plc this is. The uhhhh sounds like someother guy has dubbed it rite?
He gets that look a lot. Too bad he can't run away from that one! LOL! Thank you for the ending of #4. I didn't hear that either.
I just love how after Kate says she doesn't like keeping secrets from her people (which is hypocritical, seeing as she's hiding a HUGE secret from Castle, by the way), but she tells Castle what's really bothering her without any further prodding on his part. She just willingly offers up her thoughts and insecurities to him. Ah, sweet progress! ;)
At non 10.02, I age about eh Alexis part. I don't want her character in the middle of things. I think the show gets too dark when the kid gets involved in big matters of the show. I like her charact as the bubbly daughter that gives little insights to her father. She being at crime scenes just doesn't seem like something nice. Just my opinion.The 4th sneak peak, is amazing. Kate actually opening up and telling him how she feels. Love this Kate. But something tells me he isn't being completely honest with her and that is going to come back and bite him in the ass because from the promo, she obviously isn't ok with Sophia even after his explanation in the car.plus she does refer to her as his girlfriend, so I think there was a relationship which he refrained from telling her because it's insignificant and he doesn't want to push her away, but I think Sophia mentions it and she is going to upset about that.
"...that THAT will undermine our *unit cohesion*?"Is that what the kids are calling it these days? LOL!lucygg
I love you, castle, but I must disagree with you on one thing! When he says that he is not more mature, this couldn't be farther from the truth. Being with Beckett has made him grow up so much over the past few seasons. Season 1 Castle probably would have teased Beckett about her jealousy, but the ah-mazing Season 4 Castle comforts her instead. Just the simple things that make such a big difference!
couldnt agree more :)
i feel like sneek peak #4 has a lot more meaning behind it in the tone of castles voice and kates reaction like castle is really talking about kate when he says nikki is a more complex,nuance character,saying indirectly that kate(nikki) means more to him and is more interesting then sophia ever was. also that when he says im a much more experianced writer,he is using a metaphor to say he is much more experianced at relationships.
Yes!... and also I think he's lying a bit about his relation with sophia. Anyway, the past is the past..he's more mature now
Just to compare book signing scenes from 1x01/2x05 to 4x01. He is not even old Castle shadow. Of course he is still a bit gallant, childish, playboy persona and sometimes his imagination goes too far but relationship/partnership or whatever it call with Beckett changed him a lot.
Back in season 2 and 3... that sneak peek would have stopped at 0:35. And then they would have shown us a new scene. But witht this season, it's difference because Castle and Beckett have to deal with their feelings for each other. It can be say and done differently, but it is still there.Before, Kate didn't care, but now she does.And that's why she want to talk him, in her own way.Kate is smart enough to know when to open up and when to "expose" herself to him.To be honest, I'd love to see a scene between Beckett and Sophia talking about Castle. Being the cop that she is, Kate is really good at getting information.And hopefully,Sophia will watch on and say something like"But he never said he loved me..."The_Unicorn22 from Canada
No, with the exception of early season 1, Kate has always cared. She didn't want to admit it to anyone, not even herself, but now she can openly discuss it with Castle. It looks like those behind- the- scenes therapy sessions are working!P.S. Does anyone else feel like it's been wayyyyy too long since we've seen one of Kate's sessions with Dr. Worf? The last one was all the way back in "Kill Shot!" I love the insight into Kate's head! I really hope we get one in "Pandora!"
I think Kate has always cared about castle. I mean she told him about her dad being an alcoholic and her mom being murdered in the 5th episode of season 1. She cares I just think she wanted to hide that from other people and didn't really know how strong she cared about him till season 2. I think it was good progress that she told him she was insecure. Really shows how far she has come and that she is really trying to tear her walk down in therapy. I hope we get a session in pandora to with dr. Burke. Also something that I can't stop thinking about but if beckett's secret comes out in this ep and Alexis is there and no doubt castle will be somewhat pissed but does anybody think she will be able to sense the tension between them and maybe she's the thing that leads them to the hope in the box. Like maybe she will ask her dad to hear Beckett out. Idk if this will happen since Alexis hasn't been close to Beckett this season but I was just wondering if anybody else thought she could actually be one of the key items leading to the hope in pandora's box.
I don't know, I see Alexis as more on her dad's side in the situation. She has a lot of resentment for Beckett at the moment, which in my opinion, is pretty justified. I mean, Kate takes her dad away from her all the time and then puts him in harms way. I don't mind, because we get lots of shipper moments from those life and death scenes, but it's got to be hell on Alexis.Also, I would like Kate's secret to come out when she and Castle are alone together. I would love to see another fight like the one in "Knockout" because I don't see Castle accepting the fact that his (almost) lover lied to him for 8 months very graciously. Also I think they would call each other "Kate and Rick," and that always makes me happy. ;)
