THROWBACK THURSDAY : CASTLE – FIRST VIC
Posted by: on 06/29/2017 previous - next
Just for fun, I thought we would visit our first on screen murder victim.
Our first glimpse of Kate gives us a view of a young, serious, meticulous detective who goes the distance to find justice for her victims.
The writers got her characters just right. I just love the monologue she verbalizes as she mentally steps through her checklist.
KATHERINE (KATE) BECKETT: Who are you?
JAVIER ESPOSITO: Alison Tisdale. 24. Grad student at NYU, part of the social work program.
BECKETT: Nice place for a social worker.
ESPOSITO: Daddy’s money. Neighbours called to complain about the music – when she didn’t answer they had the super check on…
BECKETT: No signs of struggle. He knew her.
LANIE PARISH: He even bought her flowers. Who says romance is dead?
BECKETT: I do, every Saturday night.
LANIE: vWell, lipstick wouldn’t hurt. (off Beckett’s look) I’m just sayin’…
BECKETT: So what did he give her besides roses?
LANIE: vTwo shots to the chest. Small calibre.
BECKETT: Does this look familiar to anyone?
ESPOSITO: No, but I’m not the one with a thing for freaky ones. Just give me a Jack shot Jill over Bill so I can get my collar and go home.
BECKETT: Oh, but the freaky ones require more. They reveal more. Look at how he left her: covered modestly.
KEVIN RYAN: So?
BECKETT: So, despite all of the effort, all of the preparation, you won’t find any evidence of sexual abuse.
ESPOSITO: You really get that from just this?
BECKETT: This. Plus, I’ve seen this before.
ESPOSITO: You’ve seen it before. Where?
BECKETT: Roses on her body? Sunflowers on her eyes? Don’t you guys read?!
And we also get an inkling that Kate just might be a fan of the ‘MASTER OF THE MACABRE ‘. Best if all we get to ‘meet’ Lanie, Espo and Ryan!
