Castle 5×13 — “Recoil”: As soon as I realized this episode was even remotely related to Beckett’s mom’s murder, I mentally tuned out. I have never been interested in that storyline, and none of the developments that have unfolded over the past five seasons have changed my mind about it. So instead of paying attention to what was happening with the senator, I spent most of the episode researching riding helmets for my niece.
Anyway, I might watch this ep again if other fans/reviewers think it’s worth the time. But for now, I’m just looking forward to seeing what kind of story the writers have put together involving Castle’s dad.
