    • Or this could happen: He puts the moves on Beckett, Castle gets jealous, Castle and Beckett argue, it forces Castle and Beckett to confront their relationship status, and then Castle and Beckett FINALLY pull their heads out of their a**es and get together. :)

    • This eposode was one of my absolute favorites. I really think that the producers of Castle should create a new series around this character and call it SCOTLAND YARD. I think it would be an instand and long running hit.

  • I love that they put (Neighbours) in brackets, like people actually know what that is.
    I mean, I do (being Australian) but I think few Americans would know of it.
    McLeod’s daughters was great too (I cried so much when Claire died)… until they ran out of daughters. Then it was awkward.

  • OMG… I’m watching Castle right now…. Brett Tucker is looking better than he ever has!!! This ’5:00 Shadow Bad Boy’ look suits him extremely well (feeling a little warm from his hottness, whew!)… absolutely gorgeous!!! The heck with Castle …Beckett should hold on to the Scotland Yard bloke really tight!! The network needs to sign him on for a few episodes.

  • I love Brett Tucker, really I do. Mcleod’s Daughters was fab, he wag reat on neighbours, and I’m sure he’ll be great on Castle, but that accent? Cockney with twist?sorry mate, it’s dreadful!

  • Just watchef the epidode. Im not sure if Brett was supposed to be british. He daid he csme from the East End I assume of London.That being the case he had the worst English accent I have ever heard. Surely with all the British/English actors they habe over there they could have found one suitable for thr role. Visually he looked like Becks its true…but heaven knows what accent he was aiming for. He sounded what he is an Aussie…lol.
