Castle Recap: You Can't Win 'Em All

JACK COLEMAN, STANA KATIC

This week on ABC’s Castle, Beckett had difficult decisions to make as she kinda sorta somewhat tried to apprehend the person plotting to kill her mortal enemy. Did Kate end up crossing any lines in the name of “letting justice prevail”?

THE CASE | After a young woman turns up dead, stripped of nearly any identifying marks and incinerated in a trash can, it is discovered that she had been seen at a “discreet” hotel with Senator Bracken. The slithery politico however has an alibi. Besides, clues left behind by way of the deceased’s voicemail point Beckett & Co. to a stolen car and the gear of a sniper assassin. Bracken isn’t a suspect — he’s the target.

Bracken gets briefed on the threat, but refuses to cancel a very important speech that will put him “on the national stage.” He is then bemused to see that Beckett is leading the investigation into the man who wants him dead, as she runs him through the usual questions about possible enemies. He has many, he says, “but most of them aren’t crazy enough to want to kill me — present company excluded.” He then ventures, “This must be a dream come true for you,” him being in someone’s crosshairs. Actually, a stone-cold Kate corrects, “In my dreams I get to pull the trigger.” That said, she assures using potent words, “When somebody commits murder, whoever he is, I’ll bring him to justice — no matter what it takes.”

Kate’s first real crisis of conscience comes when she hides from Rick a piece of Bracken hate mail that matches a notebook left behind by the assassin. Though she toys with torching the letter, she doesn’t — and she almost brings it to the team’s attention when RySposito interrupt with a new clue that points them to an auto body shop. That in turn leads to a flophouse, where Kate finds herself eye-to-eye with Bracken’s wannabe killer, Robert McManus. Yet when he cuts and runs, she can’t bring herself to shoot him. “I didn’t miss,” she later onfides in Rick. “I saw his pain, and I couldn’t take the shot.” Adding to Beckett’s burden of guilt: McManus actually has planted a bomb, meaning if he sets it off, that blood is on her hands. Luckily, RySposito bring the suspect in ASAP, yet Kate isn’t able to break him in interrogation. (And along the way comes thisclose to cluing in Gates on her vendetta.) Gates cuts the Q&A short when a bomb vest is turned up. Bracken, though, stops short of applauding Kate’s efforts, seeing as he knows she let McManus go free when given the chance: “Two shots, missed at close range…? I guess I was right about you.”

Beckett though gets to prove her mettle when she deduces the bomb vest wasn’t of McManus’ making and the real assassin is still out there. She thus decides to evacuate the hotel where Bracken is giving his uberimportant speech — a call that looks b-a-d bad when a bomb sweep comes up empty. But then Kate spies Bracken’s driver fidgeting with his Zippo in a tell-tale way, and is able to shield Bracken just as his ride goes kablooey. (Meanwhile, Rick tackles the driver FTW!) “You saved my life,” Bracken later notes to his adversary. “Can’t win ‘em all,” Kate shrugs. Still, he says, “I’m in your debt…. You never know when you might need a friend.” What’s the saying — with friends like him…?

THE CASKETT | The episode opens with a fleeting bit of banter about Alexis’ beau and Rick’s need to “meet and intimate” any possible suitors…. While sifting through the senator’s hate mail, Rick jokes about Kate’s death threats against the guy dotting the word “kill” with little hearts…. Kate confiding in Rick her inability to pop McManus made for a nice scene…. Rick is ready to ply his lady with celebratory vino when she kills the mood with her new theory…. Mild, across-the-couch coziness at episode’s end, as Caskett realize that Bracken is on the fast-track for the White House.

What did you think of this week’s episode, “Recoil”? Not quite as many or as intense of Stana Katic moments as previous “My Mother’s Murder” installments, but surely an upgrade from the previous couple episodes in overall quality and level of tension.
