Review/Recap Castle | ‘Child’s Play’ (Season 7, #4)


By: Cynthia Ayala

“Castle goes under cover at an elementary school to try to find a student who may have information about the shooting of an ice cream vendor.”

  • Synopsis provided by Shazam.

I do enjoy Castle so very much.

This last episode brought out the inner child of Castle, if that was even more possible, and Nathan Fillion captured all the humor that was necessary for his role in this episode. After all, he did go undercover in order to try and figure out which child was a witness to a shooting.

Witnessing a crime is frightening for anyone no matter the age, and this episode really took an opportunity to build on that not only with the little kids but with Alexis as well. The way that violence changes a person and awakens the fear inside them and turns them into a scared kid or a worried mother, which is what happened to Alexis. However, that actress made it so much fun to watch her act like the mother, worrying about her father as if he was her child. Alexis has grown so much as an actress, capturing the comedic timing perfectly.

Then there is Nathan Fillion as always impresses on the screen capturing the comedy perfectly with falling down and getting his tushie handed by a bunch of kids, letting grass wet his pants and playing princess. That last one was priceless.

The writers lately are doing an amazing job recapturing the humor and making the show incredibly entertaining week after week.
