'Castle' - 'Suicide Squeeze' Recap

Castle - Suicide Squeeze
(S02E15) First of all, those stilettos Beckett had on were awesome. I'm not saying that so much as a girl crush, but as more of a 'Sex and the City' sort of style thing. Her mullet seems to have calmed down a little, and overall, I'm liking her style (though I'm still on the fence about her jacket pictured above). Girlfriends, what say you about the jacket?!

It's nice that Castle is so cool with not having a dad his whole life. And whatever he's had in his life has made him the person he is, which is a cool guy with a cool mom and ultra-cool daughter for wanting to play softball with him. Not in the house, though! That can only end badly. Not only that, he has a deep affection for women everywhere, having grown up around women (and continuing to grow up even though he has a daughter now).

Anyway, I knew about half-way through that we were talking about Vega getting his daughter out of Cuba, not a girlfriend. That was a nice touch that she ended up with Vega's wife at the end, building a family around Vega's memory.

Great guest stars in this episode! Ray Wise ('Reaper'), the real Joe Torre (so cute how Beckett got all flustered with him), Blair Underwood ('The New Adventures of Old Christine,' 'In Treatment,' and 'Dirty Sexy Money'), and Chandra West (a whole bunch of stuff).

I'll just leave you with this:

Alexis: "Gran's teaching me how to read minds."
Castle: "Yes, you come from a long line of hucksters and charlatans, me included."

And this:

Alexis (after Castle eats whipped cream out of a can): "Dad, you'll spoil your dinner!"
Castle: "This IS my dinner."
Alexis: "No!"

Jacket was okay. Different than some of the other stuff she wears all the time. Her hair is looking better now too. Only complaint I have is that I think she wears a little too much eye makeup.

1. Loved the coat. Stiletto heels, I read, are sexy because the put the female's relevant area into a mating position.
2. Little Joey from One to Live sure grew up to be an irresistible grownup star.
3. Wonderful having 3 generations carrying on so entertainingly.

Castle is the best show on tv-- it should be nominated for loads of Emmys -- including best actor and actress.

I'm a huge fan of the coat. Love it. Love them both - Castle and Beckett make my Monday nights. Beckett's hair was awesome this episode - I beg her (and the producers, and the hair people, and the director, and her agent, and anyone else associated with Stana) please check the mullet at the door! She's such a beautiful woman, but I cannot take that hair style!!

Yea I totally thought it was Blair Underwood in that first scene, then realized it wasn't when they met him at the club.

It seems to me that no matter how many circles they go around in each episode, the murderer is always the guest star or "that guy" actor that you've seen before on some other TV show. It makes sense. For the bad guy in general you'd want a proven actor, right?

Blair Underwood wasn't in the episode, but Don Franklin (Seven Days, SeaQuest DSV) was.
