Fringe may be over but I still have an insatiable desire to create crazy, photo captions, and this week’s Castle episode seemed like a perfect outlet. It was a treat seeing Patrick Fabian of Veronica Mars fame guest star, and Gina Torres reunite with her Firefly castmate, Nathan Fillion.
Here’s a look at some of my favorite moments from 5×14.
Castle trying to guess his Valentine’s Day gift
The Star Wars reference alone made me love this scene, but sci-fi references aside, Castle and Beckett’s adorable banter is proof that they would be an awesome couple to go on a double date with.
Thanks to the election, about a third of my shows weren’t on this week, but the ones that were new had some truly memorable moments, including a Castle episode that put the “fan” in fantastic, some lovable bad boys on Once Upon a Time, and a historic tribal council. Here are our highlights from the past week of television…
