CASTLE Season 5 Premiere: ‘After the Storm’ You Ask, I Answer

August 31, 2012 by  

The best way to pep up a potentially dragging Friday? Getting notified I can watch the fifth season premiere of CASTLE. (Have I mentioned lately my job doesn’t suck?)

But television can be considerably less fun if you can’t share it with others.

While we can’t have a big group-watch of the episode together (how awesome would THAT be?!), I did what’s hopefully the next best thing: I asked for your questions about “After the Storm” on Twitter and Tumblr and then did my best to answer them after I viewed the hour. That means plenty of teasing, but the intention is not to ruin your enjoyment of the hour, so I couldn’t answer some of the very specific/spoilery questions you had. But hopefully you’ll still enjoy these teases…

Does anyone find out about Caskett in the first episode? Do we see Beckett’s bedroom? – @myrtlegroggins (via Twitter)
The answer to at least one of those questions is yes.

Is Beckett’s dad going to make another appearance this season? – @lynnerau (via Twitter
He’s not in the premiere, but given he was also cut from the finale, let’s hope he shows up ASAP. After all, his daughter has an important new relationship in her life…

Are Castle and Beckett more open with each other now that they’ve done the deed, or do they still dance around their feelings? – Peg (via email)
The duo are refreshingly honest with each other. I was actually a bit surprised how honest they were at one point. (It may have made me go “Aww” just a teeny tiny bit.)

ANYTHING you can tell us about the cuteness-/hotness factor of Castle & Beckett in 5×01 would be MUCH appreciated. Dying! – @Nora02583 (via Twitter)
I’m pretty sure “Caskett” fans may have a ridiculous smile on their face for large parts of the episode. There are some super serious moments in the hour — AKA it’s not all fun and games — but I’d be shocked if you guys don’t break Tumblr and Twitter a bit during/after the episode airs.

Where are Ryan & Esposito at in their friendship? Still at odds, or are their signs that they’re back to being ‘them’? – @Laffers18  (via Twitter)
For as good as Castle and Beckett are, Ryan and Esposito are on the opposite end of the spectrum. Things have not been resolved between the duo at all. (There’s threats of violence and pretty pointed nickname in the premiere. Hug it out, guys!)

Is there some resolution to Johanna’s case and is that change in Kate evident from the start of the ep to the end? – @_Jessalynn_ (via Twitter)
There is certainly a level of resolution to the case (in the interest of not ruining things, I can’t share how much resolution), and because of that, Kate Beckett might be the most bad-ass we’ve EVER seen her. And that’s saying something.

So…are you counting down the moments until CASTLE’s season premiere?

    Castle is a fantastic show that continues to get better and better. Kudos to the writer’s, actor’s, and crew for showing what good TV really looks like!

    Thanks so much! I LOVE the show, and I’m totally counting the days until I get to watch this. It sounds like they got it right! Feel free to offer any other tidbits any time the mood stikes you… 🙂

    Thank you so much for this! I am so excited to see Castle back on my TV in just a few weeks and this only adds to it! I didn’t even start watching Castle until a coworker at Dish told me about it, but I am completely hooked now. The best part of this season is that my Hopper will record it with the PrimeTime Anytime feature so that I don’t have to pick between any of my other shows to record. I can’t wait until the 24th of September to finally get to see Castle and Beckett back on my TV!
