Episode 20: The Fast and the Furriest
By: Carlos Uribe
Castle is a show about a mystery writer who helps his lover solve crimes.
It's time for the bigfoot episode of Castle! In what should come as no surprise to any viewer, Castle believes that bigfoot might actually be the killer while Beckett doesn't believe in bigfoot's existence. It does lead to a great scene where the two discuss their perspectives. What I mean is that Castle explains why he's willing to believe anything while Beckett explains why she only believes in theories with concrete evidence. That scene is nice in that it allows them to express their beliefs from a place of character. Everything else was basically what you would expect from Castle. Castle tries to push for his bigfoot theory. There's a point where the writers pretend that their going to reveal bigfoot's existence of him but of course it's just a believer in a suit. The real killer is actually her employer who had killed her roommate a year ago. The blame had been placed on the roommate's boyfriend so he was living in the woods for the whole time. The weekly case was the kind of fun light-hearted case that Castle can do in it's sleep. It was entertaining but it really wasn't particularly impressive. Overall, it leads to a solid but forgettable episode.
