Exclusive Castle First Look: A Plastic Surgeon Sizes Up Kate and Rick -- Who Is 'Amazing'?

This Monday on ABC’s Castle, an elite cosmetic surgeon has a glowing opinion to share about one of the sleuths consulting her about an unusual murder — but is her “amazing” assessment directed at Rick, or Kate?

      I am very happy, when someone conceited Castle’s, cooled down with cold water.
      But today it was liquid nitrogen.
      I love it. :-)

  2. guesto says:

    Is Dr. Kelly Nieman’s character recurring? I seem to remember reading that somewhere.

  3. Marine says:

    Excited for more Esplanie :)))) Sounds like an amazing episode already!!!

  4. Rich Abey says:

    “You have an amazing face Detective Beckett” Sorry doctor but we knew that already & we adore it.
    Castle’s face when she said he had amazing potential..PRICELESS!

  5. LL624 says:

    Lol. I would have to agree with the doc here. Stana IS stunning.

  6. Brendan says:

    Wow, looks like Annie and Stana will be amazing together with Nathan on it as well.

  7. Wow says:

    “What about my face?” Geez they write Castle as such a panzy now smh. Can anyone see Season 1 Castle even asking that question? Or any grown man? Wow

    • scooby says:

      “I really am ruggedly handsome, aren’t I?” Does that direct quote accompanied by the image of Castle checking himself out in a window answer your question?

  8. c-mo says:

    This ep. is going to be equal amounts of creepy and funny, a perfect Castle balance.

  9. RS says:

    Superficially many actors/actresses are beautiful. However, I don’t really think anyone who looks one way one season, and sometimes very different the next is beautiful. Heck, you don’t even know what they really look like. Natural looks are the most beautiful.

    • Just one thing says:

      Tell that to about half of Hollywood. It’s the nature of the beast, among many things — like African-American actresses being lightened with Photoshop in promotional photos and magazine covers, and otherwise beautiful, smart, “plus-size” actresses being relegated to caricatures of themselves. All within an industry of “types,” measurements, and a host of other factors that have absolutely nothing to do with talent.
      Unfortunately, beauty is in the eye of the beholder for everyone EXCEPT those in front of the camera. It sucks, and I don’t envy them.

      You are right! but you are and will hurt feelings with your comment

    Ouch amazing potential…long way from “ruggedly handsome” there. The plastic surgeon seems kinda creepy. I bet she might even be the “Disciple”, or at least involved with him somehow.

  11. Jared says:

    Well, this doctor may be involved in some shady business, but when it comes to Kate Beckett, she isn’t wrong. Stana Katic is stunningly beautiful.

    • amy shaw says:

      When it comes to Castle she’s wrong. He is just as beautiful as Beckett. Sorry.

        Come on, Nathan seems like a nice, decent fellow so let’s not open a debate by comparing his and Stana’s looks. Stana is beautiful and Nathan is… well Nathan is Nathan. He played that scene beautifully, so let’s appreciate it for what it was. He loves humor. I loved the look on his face- priceless. Kate immediately showed that she suspected the comment. Actually, I wonder if Stana. the person, tire of people commenting on her looks. In interviews she hardly acknowledge the comments and she seems slightly uncomfortable. She obviously is very eye catching in real life. Everyone seems to comment. On GMA, the interviewer introduced her as ‘the stunning, very stunning Stana Katie. Maybe this is nerve racking to a serious actress. She’s reaching for good acting, not super model status. Even Bowman called her pretty during 2010 Paley Center event. She bowed her her and never looked up. On Kelly & Michael, Michael commented on the beauty on the show, again she bowwed her head without acknowledging the comment. I think she is slightly shy about it.

    The return of 3XK? Oh, please, please please! You know he’s not dead and he loves to mess with Castle and company.

  13. Cindy says:

    That sounds like a good tv show, I’ll watch out for it. I don’t know if anyone reading this watches “Breaking Bad”…it is really good, the basic plot being that of a high school teacher dying of cancer and how he starts to make and distribute meth to make sure his family has enough cash when he is gone. Watch it sometime! It’s very dramatic.

  14. act_on_love says:

    Nathan Fillion is really good at playing vanity for laughs, and Stana is equally good at someone who’s uncomfortable with unwanted attention to her appearance.

    Fillion’s take on being “blubberous” in Firefly: Our Mrs. Reynolds is just priceless. It’s also one of the hottest seduction scenes ever on television.
