Only managed to get three and a half minutes into this week’s Castle before I couldn’t take any more. Someone let me know when this disgusting, bratty impostor finally goes the hell away and the real Alexis (wonderful, funny, smart, sensible, seasons 1-4 Alexis) returns.
Until then, I think this show and I need to take a break.
note to self don’t think about your otp curled up together in bed, legs and arms all tangled together between blankets to fight off the cold and listening to the sound of rain and each other’s breathing, faces buried in tangles of hair or against the other’s chest/neck and pressing little kisses against their cheek or their shoulder or their neck and mumbling about how lucky they are to have the other because you will get feelings and then cry
Wow. Quite possibly my least favourite episode of Castle ever. The plot was pretty lame (which is saying a lot coming from someone who loved the National Treasure movies) and literally every character was being annoying in some way (with the exception of Lanie and Ryan, my precious babies). I feel like the awesomeness of the first few eps of this season has totally just crashed an burned, and I’m already grieving for the beautiful relationship moments that have been so notably absent in this last ep or two. So much for progress.
Oh and good god, do not get me started on Alexis. I am all for young people getting out into the world and growing up— but that is not what Alexis is doing. She’s become a shrivelled, nasty little cow and the bitterness and utter lack of respect she has shown for literally EVERYONE just puts my teeth on edge. Alexis scenes used to be one of the show’s highlights; now, even the mention of her name is infuriating. Now, I’m no expert, but that sure doesn’t sound like great character writing/development to me. Sorry Marlowe and Co, but I just can’t get behind you on this one.
tl/dr; whoever wrote the recipe for this week’s Castle seemed to have forgotten all the most important ingredients, overbaked the plot, and has used character arcs that are way past their use-by date and are practically rotten— overall, leaving one hell of a bad taste in your mouth.
HOW THE FUCK DO YOU EVEN WRITE 26 PAGES!?! I am so scared of college in two years. Don't make me.
Haha, to be fair, it’s mainly the formatting and spacing that causes the crazy length. The word count is actually only 5,000 words (and I’ve never had to write more than that for any assignment so you probably won’t either).
So don’t worry too much; college is awesome and you will love it.
