Castle 4.05 "Eye Of The Beholder" Review


Last night’s episode, "Eye of the Beholder" turned out to be a very light and fun hour of television. I admit I was slightly apprehensive about this episode and, while I thought it was very entertaining for the most part, there were a few things that stood out and bothered me a little.

"Eye of the Beholder" was very reminiscent of last season’s "Nikki Heat". It had the same tone, the same jealous Beckett plot and the same over the top blonde who wanted to get her hands on Castle. It is no secret that "Nikki Heat" is one of my all time favorite episodes – and this is coming from someone who prefers the more dramatic ones – and although last night’s episode was very much like "Nikki Heat", it wasn’t exactly as brilliant. Last season, Natalie Rhodes had me laughing out loud at her extremely thorough method acting; last night, Serena Kaye just pissed me off. Sure it was great to see Beckett’s jealousy rear its ugly head, but this time I just felt bad for her. Last night wasn’t about a woman trying to get into her head and imitate her; no, last night things got personal. It was about some other woman trying to take away the man she is in love with. For if there is one thing "Eye of the Beholder" established is that Kate Beckett is one hundred percent in love with Castle. Read More...
