Esposito: “Give us one of your theories, bro. Whatever it is, it can’t be any crazier than what we are already dealing with.”

Castle: "Eleven seconds to a confession. That has got to be your personal best

Castle: “Okay, alright, I think I am man enough to admit I am completely theory-less.”

“Room 147” is tonight’s episode of "Castle." Beware this article contains spoilers. To review the last case file, click here. Be sure to check out the slideshow for more quotes from the episode. "Castle" airs Monday nights at 9 on ABC (KTRK).

A staple of a “Castle” episode is that right away Castle has some ridiculous theory that magically explains the case. This case, though, has him stumped, which is hilarious to see. The one time Castle gets asked for a theory, he can’t come up with one. Of course, as the case progresses Castle comes up with a theory or two. Still, it is a nice touch that for a moment, the case stumps even Castle. Did you enjoy this moment as much as I did?

Alright, so let’s chat about the case. It is nice that there wasn’t a grand conspiracy where people were purposely sent in to confess to the crime to throw the detectives off the case. Because sending one person would yield a better chance that the cops believe this person and stop looking. Obviously if three people confess, odds are none of them did it. There wasn’t a mastermind sending people to confess, it just happened that way. This influx of confessors creates a good bit of humor in the episode, which is great, especially the scene where all three of them are comparing what they saw when they killed Justin. As for the whodunit, it was obvious that it was going to be someone from the acting troupe, but thankfully it didn’t turn out to be a jealous girlfriend. What did you think of the case?

Beckett and Alexis haven’t had many one on one scenes. If they are in a scene together, Castle is always there. This episode starts out worrisome when it becomes obvious that Beckett believes she is the reason that Alexis isn’t returning home. Be honest, you expected the worst too. The writers could have given us a really awkward scene, but instead, we get an amazing emotional scene. Beckett gives Alexis advice, and Alexis actually opens up about what’s going on in her life. Hopefully the writers will include more scenes of the two of them because they are fantastic. Did you love the Beckett and Alexis scene?
