  3. <span style="font-weight:bold;font-size:225%;">EPISODE 4.07: "COPS & ROBBERS" / BEST OF</span>
  4. "When Castle and Martha are taken hostage in a bank robbery, Beckett becomes a negotiator in an effort to save them.
  6. <span style="font-weight:bold;font-size:150%;">IN A NUTSHELL</span>
  7. One of the best episodes of the series. Tense, dramatic and brilliantly acted
  9. <span style="font-weight:bold;font-size:150%;">DRAMATIC HIGHLIGHTS</span>
  11. <a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href=""><img style="cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;" src="" border="0" alt=""id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5672269538915917442" /></a>
  13. • The opening sequence: Castle and Beckett chatting on the phone, as the robbers enter the bank one by one. A kinetic and efficient way to jump right into the story.
  14. • The tension inside and outside the bank: flashing lights, SWAT team, etc.
  15. • Beckett dealing with the hostage situation: powering through it and powerless at the same time. You can feel that dichotomy throughout most of the episode. Really well done.
  16. • Castle and Martha: "I love you mother" / "Right back at you kiddo". Touching motherand-son moment.
  17. • The blast and the rescue scenes. More on that later.
  18. • Beckett looking tenderly at the Castle family hug. Nice detail.
  20. <span style="font-weight:bold;font-size:150%;">FUNNIEST MOMENTS</span>
  22. <a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href=""><img style="cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;" src="" border="0" alt=""id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5672269818710336770" /></a>
  24. • Castle looking embarrassed and bored while Martha talks to their banker.
  25. • "You are nothing but a well-dressed loan-shark" - Martha to the banker.
  26. • Esposito et Ryan about to break into the old lady's apartment: "Help! Police!". -- The way Jon Huertas delivers that line is just plain hilarious.
  27. • "Castle Junior" and "Super Cop". Great comic relief... inches away from the decomposing body of an elderly woman. Something not every show can pull off!
  30. <span style="font-weight:bold;font-size:150%;">GREAT CINEMATOGRAPHY</span>
  32. <a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href=""><img style="cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;" src="" border="0" alt=""id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5672270316398079842" /></a>
  33. • Close-up of Beckett's hands as she awaits for news in the SWAT van -- One simple frame that says so much, and happened to be beautifully shot (texture, blue light and slightly out of focus background).
  34. • The blast. -- The decision to show Beckett's reaction first was both inspired and gripping. The timing (sudden, without any "build up"). Beckett freezing. Stana Katic's face up-close. Lots of great choices there. -- The sound of the explosion itself and the "blast wave" effect were also extremely realistic (see author's notes).
  35. • The blast site. -- Very X-Filish with the smoke, the flashlights, the SWAT team and Beckett filmed as silhouettes, back-lit.
  36. • The two "family" scenes at the end: in the precinct and at Castle's loft. Warm tones and atmosphere, in stark contrast with the blue of the bank robbery scenes
