Curious, what did you find out about Martha and Alexis’s reactions? To me they seem consistent with the way both of them have coped with traumatic events in the past.
Sorry this was the only way I seemed to be able to reply. For me, I suppose that, even though there were very few scenes with Martha and Alexis, I found that in comparison to Kate the emotion they were displaying regarding Castle was fairly non-existent. Now this was my opinion upon my second viewing of the whole thing. I have since then, just watched bits (including all the Martha and Alexis scenes), and my opinion has slightly changed. The scene at the crash, there is definitely emotion there, so I may have misjudged. There is an episode, I think it’s Knockdown where Martha gets upset after him and Kate are shot at, and I suppose I was just expecting something a little more on that level. Alexis as well, to me just didn’t seem very scared that she may very well loose her father. To me, they both seemed unworried. Now I suppose that could just be their coping mechanisms, but Alexis got pretty worked up in Cops and Robbers, so I guess I was just expecting a little more. Also, further on when Martha and Alexis are being briefed about Castle being unconscious, the scene seems awkward, and Kate isn’t close to them, she’s distant and they don’t even acknowledge her. Now maybe she was already briefed, I don’t know, but it seemed off to me. And finally when Martha is briefing Kate on how he woke up and asked for her, and Kate asks whether he mentioned where he was, and Martha just shrugged it off, telling her not to ask. It just unsettled me a little. That’s all just my opinion though :)
Castle… Hey, it’s me.
I’m so glad with this, for 2 months she had no shoulder to cry and despite the fact that she still doesn’t trust him like before she is with him for better or for worse. And she’s sharing her feelings opening up to him and crying on his shoulder because crying alone for 2 months was the worst time of her life
fuck this gifset to the deepest darkest corners of hell
at this point I’ve nearly forgotten that pirating movies and software is illegal
before an episode:
GIVE ME ANGST I LOVE ANGST. I LIVE ON ANGST.
after the episode:
TAKE BACK THE ANGST. I DON’T WANT IT. GIVE ME HAPPY THINGS.
