“Watershed” is a study in opposing forces. There are those who talk about how incredible this job opportunity is for Beckett and there is Castle inadvertently reminding her how incredible they are together. If there’s a single image from the show that can best represent this episode, it would be the moment when Beckett tosses out the coffee that Castle gave her the day before and it splashes violently across the divide of the sink, dashing both sides of the sink with the symbolic imagery.
This is the divide, a branching of choices that will change everyone’s lives for better or worse. (See what I did there?)
“Watershed” is perhaps the most introspective episode we’ve ever gotten. Interestingly, for an episode so heavily centered on where Castle and Beckett’s relationship is going, a large bulk of the significant progress occurs during conversations with their respective confidantes. I’m going to walk through this nearly scene for scene because this is one of those rare episodes where almost every moment is significant.
I’m gonna share a little story with you guys of something that just happened.
I took this pictures with my little brother just now, he also loves Harry Potter and I was so excited when I finally got him to read the books.
We took these pictures and we were super excited about them and I decided to post them on Instagram. This girl saw the picture and left a comment saying something like”THIS IS SOOOO RIDICULOUS! You two look like two nerds! Hahahaha.”
This truly made me upset. I am a fervent believer that if you don’t have something nice to say, you should keep your thoughts to yourself.
So I told her that I LOVE READING. That I LOVE Harry Potter, always have and always will and this sort of thing makes me really happy and I hope that I won’t ever stop doing things like this, and that I’d much rather do this and look like a nerd, because there’s absolutely NOTHING WRONG with being a nerd, then do what girls these days have been doing: taking pictures of themselves in front of a mirror, being all vain and mean and sounding like Narcissus.
I have a very strong personality and I won’t ever stop doing these things because of what other people may think of me, and no one should. It makes me very angry because my little brother is only 12 years old and someone “criticizing” him like this might make him want to stop being himself, which would be a terrible thing.
So yeah, don’t ever let anyone stop you from being who you are and make you think that being a nerd is a bad thing. Without knowing it, she paid me a great compliment, because I think BEING A NERD IS AWESOME!
so you got offended because somebody called you a nerd but at the end of your ridiculous rant you say ‘BEING A NERD IS AWESOME!’ woman get your shit straight
she got offended because some dipshit called being a nerd ‘SOOOOOO RIDICULOUS’.
It’s all about the way we see things.
that was the coolest thing i’ve ever seen
Oooh wow that’s really prett-oh.
this is the cutest fucking martial arts class demonstration I’ve ever seen
when she was running to him omg<333
DO YOU THINK THIS IS A GAME
OKAY. THEY KNOW ABOUT PEPPERONY. THEY CALL THEMSELVES PEPPERONY.
I’M DONE. I’M SO DONE. NOW YOU CAN BURY ME.
THEY KNOW. OH GOD, THEY KNOW.
For all the air that’s in your lungs
For all the joy that is to come
For all the things that you’re alive to feel
“A biker’s power and intimidating image can even the playing field for a little kid who has been hurt. If the man who hurt this little girl calls or drives by, or even if she is just scared, another nightmare, the bikers will ride over and stand guard all night.
If she is afraid to go to school, they will take her and watch until she’s safely inside.
And if she has to testify against her abuser in court, they will go, too, walking with her to the witness stand and taking over the first row of seats.”
During one such testimony, a little boy sat on the stand, testifying against his abusive father, who sat less than 10 feet away.
“Why didn’t you say anything before now?” Asked the prosecutor.
“I was scared.” The little boy replied, honestly.
“Why aren’t you scared now, what changed?” The prosecutor watched the little boy closely as he pointed to the front row of seats in the court room.
“Because my friends are scarier than he is.”
shit like this makes me have faith in humanity again.
This is my favorite thing.
