MONDAY MUSINGS: THOUGHTS ON SECRET SANTA

Our first CASTLE Christmas episode, SECRET SANTA aired 8 years ago and thinking back on it, I have some thoughts about it and speculation about what could have been, So jump on the sleigh and take the ride with me!

LEATHER

Beckett recognized Santa’s boots as a custom job. Two things I thought about. 1/ What else besides the boots she bought there did she get? Chaps? Saddlebags? Jacket? Pants? Handcuffs? And 2/ Did she get those boots as a gift from Josh?

SANTA SCHOOL

How cool would it have been if Castle were to go undercover as a Santa trainee in order to break open the case? I would have loved to see Castle as the jolly fat guy! And think of the innuendos he could have aimed at Beckett!

MEREDITH

Why is there no mention of Meredith or having Alexis spending any time with her mom for Christmas.  In his own admission this would be the first Christmas Eve in 18 years they haven’t spent together. You would have thought Alexis would have seen her mom once in a while during the holidays.

NAUGHTY but OH SO NICE!

How funny was the neglige scene?  Funnier if Castle had one for Beckett too when Gates caught Espo dancing around with it. I sure would not want to be Castle when the wrath of Beckett was being dispensed.

HOLIDAY DOUBLE FEATURE

I wonder what other movies were scheduled for the cinematic serenade. He mentioned ITS A WONDERFUL LIFE so would be then add tge classics WHITE CHRISTMAS, HOLIDAY INN, MIRACLE ON 34th ST. Or would be go for sophomoric humor like ELF, CHRISTMAS VACATION, THE SANTA CLAUSE? Perhaps animation like Charlie Brown, Rudolph, Frosty, the Grinch? And will A CHRISTMAS STORY be shown?

CB’D

So, no kiss under the mistletoe? Come to think of it, why is there mistletoe in a police precinct? I guess in case Gates caught them since she is the only one not to know of their budding relationship. I mean his back can a quick peck be? I mean if it were Demming….
