Bloodline Recap: (AKA a post about why I'm so obsessed with Fringe)

Okay…wow…I am still digesting everything that just happened. Let me first say that this episode was a WIN. I’m not going to go through the whole thing and call it at a WIN at the end…it was just…like the other team forfeited and this episode was crowned champion for being made of too much awesome.

This blog post probably won’t be like my usual ones. I don’t think I’m going to analyze the whole thing. I just want to talk with you guys about the episode and get all of my thoughts out on the page.

Okay first of all, Lincoln is basically my favorite character. I have had a crush on Pacey…er Joshua Jackson since Dawson’s Creek. Like I was seriously in love with him/still am. I think the Pacey/Joey relationship will always be one of my favorite relationships ever…but that’s beside the point. Anyway, as you can tell I’m a bit obsessive about Joshua Jackson, and after tonight I actually think I might like Lincoln the same if not MORE. HE IS THE CUTEST THING EVER.

A few weeks back, in the episode where Lincoln & Charlie thought Alt –Liv was infected with that deadly bug and started screaming at the evil bug guy, my heart went out to Lincoln so much. You could just see on his face how much he loves her…and it kills me that it isn’t reciprocated. I mean…HELLO FAUXLIVIA….this is LINCOLN we are talking about! Get your head on straight!!!!

Anyway so at the beginning of THIS episode when she was taken from her apartment I SCREAMED. I know we saw the promo, but for some reason the guys sneaking up on her still scared me. And then I immediately started thinking about Lincoln. He KNEW something was going to go down and he tried to send protection (BTW his line “As your commanding officer, your permission is irrelevant” KILLED me. I started laughing so hard I had to pause the episode). So when he was obviously too late I started freaking out. My thoughts were consumed with how the hell he was going to get her back.

They talked about using Alt-Liv’s tracking device to find her , but I knew that whoever stole Alt-Liv had taken it out. I mean we saw in past seasons how Newton knew to take Walter’s tracking chip out. Obviously whoever took Alt-Liv would be smart enough to know about stuff like that and would find a way to dig hers out. Seriously, I was so freaked out that Lincoln and Charlie wouldn’t get to her in time. I was gripping my couch SO hard in fear…but then Henry came along :)

I was SO happy to see Henry!!! I LOVED when Charlie and Lincoln showed up and yelled contradicting orders at him.
Henry: WHICH ONE?!
Lincoln: *Pauses* GET OUT OF THE CAR!!!!
When Henry told them everything I remembered how, in the beginning of the season, Charlie and Lincoln had questioned the fact that Liv might have been switched. I was SO hoping they would put the pieces together….

And then this scene happened: Lincoln confronted Walternate about the possibility of Liv being switched. And Walternate GENUINELY seemed upset. He told Lincoln everything that Lincoln needed to know, including the fact that at one point the Olivias were indeed switched. For the first time EVER I felt sympathy for the dude. I didn’t even feel sympathy for him in the most recent flashback episode, because I knew he was going to turn into a douche in the future. But this time I thought, “Wow. Maybe this is a turning point??” I even made an *awww-sad-face* expression….GRRR I HATE HIM. Anyway thankfully Walternate gave Lincoln the proper information (even if he had ulterior motives as we found out later) leading Lincoln and Charlie one step closer to finding Alt-Liv.

I don’t remember if this happened before or after the Walternate scene…but at some point I started to calm down…and then we had to find out that Alt-Liv DOES carry the damn virus that killed her sister. Writers…seriously…why must you keep me on my toes so much (I’m not mad; I love it :))?! So now since we knew what would happen once Alt-Liv delivered the baby (you know her inevitable DEATH) I started flipping out about Lincoln getting to her in time.

But Alt-Liv is just way too awesome, and despite being pregnant KICKED EVERYONE’S ASSES (I thought that part was a little exaggerated…I mean her stomach is GIGANTIC…how can she fight that well?? But I just went with it). She found a payphone, thank God, and got Lincoln to find her!

I think it was great that the writers decided to throw in Henry’s knowledge of shortcuts. Since he is a taxi driver that makes so much sense, and I love that Henry got to play a role in helping find her (BTW when they arrived at the scene and Henry tried to act like he was also an important member of the Fringe Division….bahahaha).

So then my FAVORITE scene happened. Lincoln had complete trust in Henry to deliver Alt-Liv’s baby, because it was coming whether we liked it or not. I love how she told Henry it was nice to meet him and the look he gave in response--a *this-is-so-weird-multi-universes-do-exist* kind of look, mixed with some compassion cause ya know…that’s just how Henry rolls.

So when she started pushing it immediately clicked in my head how WONDERFUL this show really is. I remembered seeing an interview with Josh Jackson, John Noble, and Anna Torv, where one of them (I think John) said that their acting mission would be accomplished once they got the audience to love the alternate characters as much as the original characters. Well John, you guys did it. I was FREAKING out that Alt-Liv was going to die. I was convinced, and I even started to tear up. And then Lincoln…God Lincoln …I was already emotional enough…but then you have to go and tell her you LOVE HER!? To be honest, I kind of lost track of what was happening and started thinking about her response…then I realized oh CRAP she’s dying and got back on track.

Anyway finally the baby is delivered and we think she is dead. I started thinking “Well the Fringe writers have to make this realistic and she had the disease…so unless the accelerated birth somehow counteracted the disease she HAD to die.” Well SHE WOKE UP. AND I later found out my speculation was correct (go me!).

So then the end scene…Alt-Liv is “safely” back at the hospital and the nurse takes the baby in order to I think put a tracking device in him….Regardless the baby’s foot bled and another nurse took the sample and said he was going straight to the lab with it. But then we realized the doctor who took the baby’s blood sample was one of the evil ones who originally kidnapped Alt-Liv. He passed it to someone in a black coat and I immediately thought “Crap, it’s Walternate…he really is bad.” But then we see Walternate nowhere near this event, so again I let me guard down and thought “Thank God, he might have SOME shred of humanity.” WELL I WAS WRONG. At the very end we see his stupid assistant hand him the blood card and I flipped out. WHY does he have to be such a jackass? Ugh.

Okay anyway I’ve gushed enough. PLEASE tell me what you guys think!? What were your favorite parts?? Pregnant Alt-Liv kicking ass? Lincoln saying “I love you”? Lincoln and Charlie’s obvious bromance?? Let me know! I mean obviously I don’t want to be the only one freaking out here ;)

Nickelodeon 90’s Redux: TeenNick Goes Old-School

It’s FINALLY happened guys! For years I have seen forums and comment sections full of complaints (i.e. “90’s TV was SO good. What’s wrong with children’s TV today?!”). For years I have seen nostalgic YouTube mashups of old favorites. For years I have wondered “Wow, do these twentysomethings have a bad case of nostalgia, or were their childhood shows really THAT good?” Confession: If you couldn’t already tell I am definitely one of those twentysomethings. Well you guys…it’s time to dry those tears and let go of that anger (yes Generation Y I am talking to you). Whether it’s due to quality, demand, or both Nick has FINALLY heard the outcry and is taking action!

According to a report issued by EW earlier today- starting this fall, each night from 12AM-2AM TeenNick will air a 2 hour block of 90’s TV.  And what, might you ask, will this block of TV be called?? Well TeenNick has already come up with a creative answer for that- “The 90’s Are All That.”

As of right now TeenNick plans on airing the following shows: Rugrats, Kenan & Kel, Pete & Pete, The Amanda Show, All That, and Clarissa Explains it All.  Yes, yes, I know.  I only named 6 shows. Yes, I realize there are MANY more classic Nick shows than that.  But hey, it’s a start.  And as the EW article stated: “Over time, TeenNick hopes to use the retro block to showcase other 90’s programming and movies.”  So if this retro TV block is successful, you guys can probably plan on seeing more of your favorites pop up!

Knowing that only 6 shows are slated to come back at this point, I began to wonder what other shows 90’s TV devotees miss.  So in order to properly take a trip down memory lane, I created two polls complete with lists of Nick shows from the 90’s. One poll focuses on live-action shows, while the other focuses on cartoons (I mean come on, Nicktoons is definitely its own category).  So make sure to cast your vote for your favorite! It’ll be interesting to see which show has been missed the most!

My Lips Are Sealed...Just Like Your Legs: My reactions to Glee's 'Sexy' episode

Rather than writing a long blog recapping the whole episode- I’m just going to share a few of my reactions from tonight’s Glee. After a stellar first season, I hate to say it, but I feel like Season 2 of Glee has kind of hit that “sophomore slump.” Every episode has been a little hit or miss to me and tonight was no exception. There were definitely some parts that I loved, but there were also parts that really annoyed me. In order to make this more efficient I'm just going to break the episode up into sections- here goes:

The Music:
The music tonight wasn’t that great. I have to admit, when Matthew Morrison broke out into Prince I felt EXTREMELY awkward. I’m sorry but Mr. Schue should not be singing falsetto. He was trying so hard to sound like a girl that when Holly took over I couldn’t even tell that Will wasn’t singing anymore. Also it was kind of weird that Will made a big deal about turning ‘Kiss’ into a “tango.” Yes...he and Holly did dance the tango to it, but I was expecting more of a remix. Really it was just the same old Prince song with a little risqué-ness thrown in here and there.

Also, I normally love everything that the Warblers sing….but I was not a fan of tonight’s number. I absolutely love the song ‘Animal’ and I kind of felt like they ruined it. I don’t know…perhaps my love for the original song is kind of skewing my perception of their cover, but it just felt off. And like Mr. Schue singing ‘Kiss’, seeing Kurt singing ‘Animal’ just made me feel awkward. I know we were probably supposed to laugh at his facial expressions, but they just scared me.

The one song I did like was ‘Landslide.’ Sidebar: It makes me really sad to see that people seem to think 'Landslide' was done by the Dixie Chicks...especially when Holly called it a Stevie Nicks song towards the end of the episode. So to all who are unaware, 'Landslide' was originally written by Stevie Nicks/performed by Fleetwood Mac. It was later COVERED by the Dixie Chicks. That is all. I thought that it sounded really good and I loved the emotion behind it. Naya (Santana) did an EXCELLENT job performing it. You could tell how much emotion Santana felt during the number and I love how that culminated in her meaningful conversation with Brittany…but I’ll talk more about that later.

Puckerman & Lauren:
Okay, I get what Glee is trying to go for. They want to show us that Puck has grown as a character and is no longer going after what is considered “hott” by normal standards. I love Lauren and I love that they are trying to implement that type of storyline, but I’m just not buying it. His attraction to her seems way too forced, and after being turned down so many times I doubt Puck would keep trying to woo her so forcefully.

Kurt & Burt:
I LOVED Burt in this episode. Glee has done a really good job developing Burt Hummel throughout the past two seasons. I loved that despite being resistant to the idea of talking to Kurt, Burt ended up being the one to initiate the conversation. Normally Kurt has to persuade his father to talk about these kind of topics. But when Burt saw that his son really couldn’t handle this topic he took the lead even though it must have made him REALLY uncomfortable. Father of the year for sure.

Santana & Brittany:
I really enjoyed this storyline. I loved that Glee let us see a different side to Santana. Santana is always a bitch but it’s never explained why. I loved seeing her become more self aware tonight. That conversation between her and Brittany was wonderful, and it really made me feel for Santana. I love Artie and Brittany, but Brittany and Santana would be an excellent match too.

The Guest Stars:
The guest stars were WONDERFUL. I think Holly (Gwyneth Paltrow) constantly nails her role as Holly Holliday. I feel like she provides flavor, especially considering how bland Will is half the time. She just never fails to make me laugh and actually seems like a teacher the kids could go to (even if she is REALLY inappropriate most of the time).

Carl (John Stamos) didn’t have a very big part tonight but I liked that he finally had enough of Emma’s wishy-washy attitude. When Emma admitted that she was confused about her feelings for Will, I half expected Carl to go easy on her like he always does. This would have thoroughly pissed me off because they are married now and she shouldn’t still be questioning her feelings. Luckily Carl got pissed and walked out which was refreshing to see. Also, I'm not going to lie- I probably thought his performance was amazing because I tend to think of him as a god...I mean, he's John Stamos...come on.

Rachel vs. Quinn:
This little charade is getting a bit old to me. They are constantly fighting over Finn, and while it was interesting last season, right now it just feels stale and idiotic. With all of the build up between Rachel and Finn last year the “Finchell” relationship made sense to me. It seemed like Finn had only been with Quinn because of superficial reasons, and that during last season he had actually grown up and developed something real with Rachel. His newfound interest in Quinn makes absolutely no sense to me. I get that they are each other’s “first loves,” but really…what kind of connection Quinn and him have?

Final Thoughts
Overall I am going to have to rate this episode as a LOSS. Burt, Holly, Santana and Brittany were all great. However, considering Burt and Holly aren’t even main characters, I just don’t really consider this episode that strong. So now let me ask all of you- what did you think about tonight’s Glee? Did you like the storylines? Did you like the music? Comment below.

Caleb Rivers...friend or foe?: Recap of this week's Pretty Little Liars 'Someone to Watch Over Me'

Normally I do a Monday night review of How I Met Your Mother and/or Castle.  Well since that obviously isn’t going to happen tonight, I’m instead going to write about another one of my Monday faves, Pretty Little Liars.

I haven’t written about Pretty Little Liars in awhile now and since I last blogged about the show, a lot has happened.  My last blog talked about the dance-a-thon that the girls went to (yes I know it was THAT long ago).  At that point I was still rooting for Lucas (who by the way has seriously just DISAPPEARED) and Hanna.  Well ever since that episode Caleb has weaseled his way in to my heart, and I’ve become obsessed with him.  He and Hanna have so much chemistry.  And that shower scene a few weeks back…well that was just awesome J

So anyway I’ve started to ramble on about Caleb because he’s hott in order to talk a little about this week and what I think might happen.  You know there are only 3 episodes left after tonight and the season finale is supposed to be QUITE the shocker from what I hear.  So I’ve been looking at everything that’s been happening a bit more critically- especially stuff with Caleb.

Last week a lot of relationship developments occurred.  Toby kissed Spencer (SO cute), Emily and Paige had a date, Aria confessed some deep stuff to Ezra, and Hanna lost her V card.  Yes you read that correctly…one of the liars had sex. This is why I love ABC Family; there is simply no holding back!  So naturally since Hanna decided to jump in the sack with Caleb it can be assumed that she was starting to really trust him. So OF COURSE the writers had to throw in a twist in the end and show Caleb talking to some “mysterious person.” And that’s where this episode took off.

This week Caleb is seen arguing with the mysterious person on the phone again. Caleb tells the person “No I can’t do it tonight…because I say so…because I’m living in her house!” Okay Caleb you're definitely pretty…but come on kid.  You're basically yelling on your phone in the middle of a SCHOOL. And clearly you are yelling about something you don’t want others to hear. So do you really expect people not to eavesdrop?! And in ROSEWOOD for that matter?! Well naturally people did overhear his conversation, and guess who?! Yep Aria and Emily…and guess who they went running to with this information?? Duh, Hanna.

Earlier in the episode Hanna is seen putting some food in her boy’s backpack. In true Pretty Little Liars style, Hanna finds a potential secret and decides to take a peek (you would think she would know better by now than to go snooping through someone else’s things) To her delight she finds a beautiful owl which she assumes Caleb is planning on giving to her.  Hasn’t Hanna ever learned that assuming only makes an ASS out of people? Anyway, she goes and tells the liars all about the owl.  When they question why Caleb would give her an owl Hanna explains that it is “symbolic of their first night together” (which I thought was hysterical).

So when Aria and Emily tell Hanna that they overheard Caleb talking to some mysterious person about not betraying the person he is currently living with (aka HANNA), Hanna goes into full on denial.  I mean why would she assume that this boy she just slept with, this boy who is planning on giving her an OWL, would ever try and hurt her? Hanna tries to tell Aria and Emily they must have heard Caleb wrong.  But suddenly Hanna’s hope is shattered when the liars’ arch nemesis Jenna walks in….with the owl around her neck.

Hanna immediately tries to reach Caleb who conveniently does not pick up his phone for the rest of the day.  The liars try to figure out why on earth Jenna would have that owl, and finally Spencer sees something unforgiveable.  That “owl” that Jenna got from Caleb was actually a flash drive with God knows what information (Spencer sees Jenna taking the Owl off the chord around her neck and plugging it into her computer). Spencer reports this to Hanna and the rest of the liars, and it becomes pretty clear to all of them- Caleb has been spying on Hanna.

Having had enough, Hanna marches over to Caleb’s locker and leaves him a note saying to call her.  Now a few episodes back, Toby gave Spencer a piece of paper with an odd message on it. The paper was from Jenna’s room, and Toby thought that if Spencer decoded the message she might be able to figure out if Jenna was up to anything. The message said “214” and the girls have been trying to figure out what this number means for the longest time. Last week, Toby and Spencer thought it might have been a motel room, but their guess only led to a dead end.  So having this number in her head, Hanna decides to try to open Caleb’s locker with it….and the combination works.  That piece of paper that Jenna had, had merely been the combination to Caleb’s locker which meant one thing….Caleb had DEFINITELY been working with Jenna and for AWHILE at that.

Finally Hanna confronts Caleb and he tries to explain to her that he never gave Jenna any real information.  He tries to apologize but Hanna won’t have it, and Caleb ends up taking his bags and leaving.  Towards the very end of the episode Hanna is seen crying in the bathroom, obviously feeling pretty betrayed by the boy she thought she knew.

Okay as I said earlier, the past few episodes have REALLY made me like Caleb.  So knowing he has been spying on Hanna was definitely a bummer. BUT- I still don’t think he was really doing it to harm Hanna.  I believe everything Caleb told Hanna.  I might be biased because I have a tiny crush on him…but I don’t know, he just doesn’t seem evil to me.  So my question of the week is this: Do YOU buy what Caleb told Hanna? Do you think he’s innocent? Or do you think he is connected to A??

Also- I know I didn’t really mention many of the other storylines from this episode- but for the people who did watch it- what the hell was with Ian trying to get Spencer to leave town? He’s such an ass.  I keep doubting he’s A…I think it would be too obvious, but why else would he have volunteered to help Spencer leave?? Chime in below!

BTW I give this episode a win! It was definitely suspenseful and kept me engaged.  This season has really been getting good lately, and I really hope the season finale is truly as shocking as everyone says it is!

Castle, Beckett...and Josh: A recap of Countdown (and rants about Josh)

By now, anyone who follows me on Twitter probably knows about my obsessiveness with the TV show Castle (seriously though….it has Nathan Fillion AND Stana Katic….what’s not to obsess about?) Anyway I have sent many a tweet discussing how incredible this season has been. Every episode is better than the last so each week I keep nervously asking “can Castle outdo itself this time?” Well this week it DEFINITELY did.

This week’s Castle was the second piece of a dramatic two part event. Now for you non-Castle fans, Castle’s premise is ridiculously easy to understand. Castle is a mystery novelist who helps out at a police station because he is madly in love with a female detective in order to get inspiration for his books. Each episode focuses on a murder/something traumatic that Castle and Detective Kate Beckett must solve. Each episode also deals with Castle and Beckett’s unspoken love for one another. While one might think this would get old after a while, it just doesn’t (probably due to Katic and Fillion’s undeniable chemistry). The reason this week’s episode was SO good was because both Castle elements (the dangerous situation and the love story) were operating at an all time high.

Like I said this was the second part of a two part event. In the first part, Castle and Beckett discover that there is a dirty bomb somewhere in New York City. They don’t know who created the bomb or where the bomb is. Needless to say this is a DIRE situation, so a Homeland Security Agent (Agent Fallon) gets called in to help the NYPD locate the bomb. Agent Fallon really should have been called by another military name: Major Douche. 

During last week’s episode Castle and Beckett do not follow protocol which causes Major Douche Agent Fallon to kick them off the case. Naturally the two decide to go rogue and end up finding the bomb themselves. They notice that the bomb has a timer and is set to go off at 4PM the next day. However before they can do anything people start shooting at them. With no backup and countless bullets flying past them, Castle and Beckett run through a door to escape….however, this door leads to a freezer, and of course they end up getting locked in.

So this week’s episode, ‘Countdown’ picked up right where last week’s left off. One of the main things I loved about ‘Countdown’ was the suspense. I love that the bomb had a timer forcing the characters to work quickly to avoid it detonating in the middle of Manhattan. It added another level of suspense to the story, and I applaud the writers for doing that. 

Now, although the countdown provided suspense, you would think that last week’s cliffhanger ending of Beckett and Castle slowly freezing to death would add yet another layer of tension. Well, ABC kind of ruined that by playing promos for ‘Countdown’ that clearly showed Castle and Beckett safe and sound after their stint in the freezer. Yes Castle and Beckett are the main characters so it is HIGHLY unlikely they would die, but still ABC…come on! Luckily this episode was too full of awesome for ABC to ruin it with bad promos.  Despite lacking uncertainty about their chances of survival, the freezer scene was still brilliant. Castle and Beckett truly felt like they were going to die which prompted this dialogue exchange between the two:

Beckett: Castle…thank you…for being there.
Castle: Always.
Beckett: I just want you to know how much I…

At this moment, Beckett goes limp. Now it could be just me being an extreme shipper but I SWEAR she was about to tell him she loved him. Anyway Castle does his best to wake her but ends up passing out too. Luckily Castle and Beckett are found and given medical attention. This is where the situation gets ugly. Castle wakes up and starts frantically asking if Beckett is okay. We then see that Beckett has been taken care of….by JOSH.

After this week’s episode, I’ve decided one thing: I hate Josh. Yes, Josh has barely been on screen. Yes, he is hot. Yes, he rides a motorcycle. But the dude is messing up destiny, and that is just not okay. Josh is Beckett’s boyfriend who she has been seeing throughout this season. He’s a doctor that is usually out of the country. In part one we learned that his consistent absences had been bothering Beckett (which was good news because it helped open the door to Castle and Beckett admitting their feelings). So needless to say when Josh showed up I was PISSED. Why is Mr. Always Gone suddenly there? Turns out Josh decided not to go to Haiti after all…how convenient.

At this point I got extremely disappointed and kind of overreacted. I thought that was going to be it. Since Josh was there, I assumed there would be no more Castle/Beckett love going on for the rest of the episode. I was angry that the writers would cancel out any hope of cutesy Castle/Beckett moments this early on in the episode. However, like I said, I overreacted. Little did I know the best was yet to come.

The episode continues on like any normal episode of Castle. Castle and Beckett are back on the case; they do some digging, and eventually they find the bomb. By the time they reach it the counter is down to two minutes. Neither Castle nor Beckett knows how to disable the bomb so they call Agent Fallon and try to send him pictures of it, hoping that he’d be able to tell them what to do. Unfortunately this takes too long, and Fallon apologizes because he knows he won’t be able to figure it out in time. This is a beautiful moment because it really makes the audience feel for Fallon and understand that although he had been a douche the entire time, it wasn’t because he was a bad person- it was because his job forced him to be that way.

Castle and Beckett hold hands and prepare for the inevitable.  By this point I was FREAKING out. Was the bomb going to go off?! Were they finally going to admit their true feelings to each other?! Well it turns out neither. At the last second Castle pulls out ALL of the wires hoping that undoing one of them will disarm the bomb- a true McGyver moment!  Now, this might seem ridiculous but it actually makes sense if you think about it (the bomb was going to go off anyway so why not just go for it?) When the bomb doesn’t go off Castle makes the CUTEST “in your face, bomb” expression and hugs Beckett. This leads to a scene of pure bliss…almost.

Back at the precinct Castle, Beckett, and the rest of the force drink beers and go on and on about what a day they’ve had. One of the other cops tells Castle “You don’t know how lucky you are.” Castle only looks at Beckett and says that he does realize how lucky he is.  At this point the two of them are called outside by Agent Fallon.  Fallon tries to make amends with the two and then walks away, leaving Castle and Beckett by themselves. Castle then starts to say “You know, I was thinking…”  I’m pretty sure at this point I was freaking out more than I was when the bomb was about to go off.  I cocked my head and thought “THIS IS IT! THIS IS FINALLY IT! HE’LL FINALLY TELL HER HOW HE FEELS!” Unfortunately he didn’t. Castle abruptly changes the subject, making us (and Beckett) wonder what on earth just happened. We then realize that Castle stopped because someone showed up…JOSH. Stupid Josh. 

This scene PERFECTLY paralleled the end of season 2 when Beckett is about to tell Castle her feelings for him. She breaks up with her boyfriend for Castle, tells Castle she needs to talk to him alone and starts to talk.  Castle’s ex wife shows up causing Beckett to stop.  Now despite the fact that tonight Castle and Beckett failed to mention their feelings AGAIN, I love that the writers completely paralleled that scene.  It makes the audience feel for Castle even more, because apparently their timing is just never right.

So that was the end of it.  Overall this episode was full of suspense and I loved every minute of it.  I was on edge the entire time and completely threw myself into it.  I think the writers AND actors did an AMAZING job and for this I give the episode a win!

So how about you guys? Did you like this episode as much as I did? Did you think it was better than Knockdown? Were there scenes you liked that I didn’t mention yet? Do you hate Josh as much as I do?! Share below! By the way the next new episode of Castle is March 21st- I simply don’t know if I can wait that long!
