MONDAY MUSINGS: CASTLE – The Villians – Vulcan Simmons
I saw episode 13 of season 3 and thought about all the great villians that have graced the show. I plan to feature each one then sort out the best. First is the larger than life Vulcan Simmons who appeared in three episodes.
SEASON THREE EPISODE 13 – KNOCKOUT
What a badass, eh? Boy did Vulcan get under Beckett’s skin, especially talking about her mother. The only reason Vulcan was even there was that Gary McAllister offered him up as a decoy. But man did Simmons ever push her buttons. He was tremendous here, so imposing so dangerous, a formidable foe for sure!
SEASON 6 EPISODE 17 – IN THE BELLY OF THE BEAST
A truly great episode. Once again, that semester in Russia came in handy as Kate goes undercover as a Muskovite drug runner for the FBI. Things go south in a hurry and her demand to see Lazerous is granted only for her cover to be blown when Vulcan Simmons recognizes her. Awesome torture scene commences before she is sent to her presumed death only to be rescued by the real Russian!
SEASON 6. EPISODE 22 – VERITAS
Well, well, Bracken had enough of Beckett and now it was time for her demise. Playing on her rage for justice and her undaunted pursuit of Vulcan Simmons, Bracken set her up for murder. Still Vulcan was awesome here, absolutely loved his quote “you do have. warrent, don’t you?” His smugness, arrogance and outright dismissal of her just made the scene better. Poor Beckett, right after this she is framed!
Will be back soon with another worthy villian. Until then, please take time to participate in the poll below:
