DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
INITIALLY, I am looking at Chris for the murder, the one who said the botanical gardens were too expensive for a wedding venue. I have seen Four Weddings, getting married can make you do unexpected things. Such as stand on top of a building in Manhattan and shoot your fiscally irresponsible girlfriend.
But then Rick Castle (not an actual homicide detective) comes up with this incredible theory that saves the police hours of fruitless legwork: what if she was shot at random?
And then Kate Beckett demonstrates how she got to be a detective: ‘‘ Castle, we need to find that paper doll,’’ and the case practically solves itself. Or almost: the shooter began the episode as a marks- man capable of killing a person walking along a street almost half a kilometre away, but lost that skill as the show went on. The cops should have put out an APB on that.
The last time I watched Castle, Stana Katic, who plays Beckett, did not really look like the person I am seeing in this episode. Also, she has taken to wearing more false eyelashes than Amber Dempsey, Lisa
Long shot: Kate Beckett
