As a diehard Browncoat (a fan of the show Firely), last night’s episode started out with what will probably be the best scene ever for me on this show. Castle comes out in his costume and is asked by his daughter what he’s supposed to be. He replies a “space cowboy” to which she tells him there’s no such thing and didn’t he wear it five years ago? He says he likes it and she tells him to get over it already.

I was laughing so hard I could barely breathe, for we all know that Alexis’ comments were not directed at her father (even though Nathan did of course play the famous Captain Mal Reynolds on the show) so much as they were to us, the Browncoats.

Get over it? Nah! Never happen.

The rest of the episode was a typical murder mystery with lots of Halloween twists as they first discover the body of a “vampire” and then a “werewolf”. Along the way, pumpkins are carved, more costumes are worn and there is even some family drama as Alexis’ friend imbibes at a party. One of my favorite moments of the night came when Castle got to be the great dad that he is by picking them both up, no questions asked, and taking care of the girl before her parents arrived.

I waited in anticipation for the final scene, knowing we’d see some more cool outfits. Castle had on a great Edgar Allen Poe (one of my personal favorite authors) costume, but it was Beckett who stole the spotlight. Showing up in an overcoat, she begins to unbutton it as Castle eagerly awaits to see what’s underneath. What can only be described as a frog-like alien pops up and it wasn’t just he who jumped at the gag, it gave me a fright too.

Overall an awesome Halloween episode that allowed us Browncoats to have a little laugh at ourselves before moving on to loads more Halloween fun.

    If Griffin wasn’t asleep on the floor next to me I would have been screaming at the TV. That first few seconds were awesome!! I knew what it was the minute it came on and In fact i thought i was seeing a clip from Firefly. SIGH.

    Not being a Browncoat I still got the reference and loved the writers and cast for doing this. This episode so far is my favorite in the series. Lots of Fun.

    I agree Rhonda, I love the writers for throwing that in there for us. Can’t imagine many shows would be happy about referencing another show from another network. Kudos to Castle for not being afraid to do it.

    Well, soulldiva, I didn’t have a sleeping toddler next to me when I saw it so I think I probably screamed enough for the both of us. LOL.
