This was another week where the television landscape was dominated by coverage of the Olympics. Monday’s Castle was the week’s only new episode, taking Castle and Beckett back to high school and ending with one of the show’s most romantic moments to date. The rest of the week featured some excellent moments from Sochi—from an ice dance final for the ages and new faces atop the podium in both men’s and ladies’ figure skating to medal-round hockey games and plenty of exciting action on the ski slopes.
While the Olympics provided some incredibly memorable moments, nothing I saw this week could top the beauty of Castle‘s final scene. That scene’s sweepingly romantic feel was made even better with the inclusion of Andrew Belle’s iconic “Caskett” anthem “In My Veins.” It was a beautiful nod to the show’s fans and a moment that will surely be ranked among this season’s best.
What was the best thing you saw on TV this week?
Like you I adored everything about that scene. But for me the best thing I saw on T.V. this week was the volunteers in Sochi skiing down the ice run in the shape of a heart in honor of Sarah Burke. It was poignant simple and reflective of the impact she had bringing her sport to the Olympics for the first time. It was probably my favorite image from the games.
That was such a beautiful moment. I’m getting teary-eyed just thinking about it.
