A couple weeks ago I tagged a promo pic for this episode and said that I had mixed feelings about it. Some people messaged me and asked why, but I neglected to answer before actually seeing it for myself. I had mixed feelings based on the premise because this idea has been attempted by other shows before, with (in my opinion) little success. I am so glad to say that I really loved The Good, the Bad, and the Baby and have already watched it an obscene number of times.
My expectations for this episode were high because in every episode Terri Miller has written, Castle and Beckett’s banter is at its absolute finest, and that’s my favourite thing to watch. It’s the most distinctive quality of Miller’s writing and it’s the reason she’s easily one of my favourite contributors to the show. Fortunately, The Good, the Bad, and the Baby is full of this deliciousness. I admit that I was less than thrilled with the MilMar penned Time Will Tell earlier this season, so this episode was a relief.
