Pretty sure Micky got over it…I think this person should as well.
Rose didn’t abandon him, she got out of a relationship that wasn’t working for her and did something positive and meaningful with her life with a one in a billion opportunity. She just so happened to fall in love with the Doctor on the way.
She had no fucking obligation to stay with Mickey. She had the right to end the relationship whenever she felt it was time.
True it took her a while to be completely clear in her intentions but so what? She’s young, she’s human, she’s allowed to make mistakes. And in the end they both became better peopl.e
This! And let’s imagine a real world situation shall we? You have been working a low paying job for several years and you have a boyfriend who you have been casually dating, but nothing serious. You happened to have sent in an application for a dream job and you find out that you’ve been hired. Unfortunately, it’s across the country. Do you turn it down for the boy? No, most likely not. You take it, because it’s furthering your life and sometimes you need to do things for you.
Rose did the same thing. She and Mickey were friends who happened to date for a little while, but neither was madly in love with the other. Rose, professionally had been working a job which was going nowhere, and she even lost that when The Doctor blew it up. When Rose was offered the opportunity to see the universe, she took it. It helped her grow as a person. I don’t think anyone should fault her for that.
In her very first episode, when Rose decides to leave Mickey and travel with the Doctor, she kisses Mickey and says, “Thanks.”
"For what?" he asks.
"Exactly," she replies.
That says it all, I think.
So we moved on from the grand, story-building mythology revolving around Castle’s abduction and amnesia to a more typical episode of the series, relatively self-contained and much lighter in tone, harking back to the more classic Castle formula of funny, sexy, romantic dramedy set in a procedural structure. It was a good ep to get the series going back to its roots, but there were some interesting things worth discussing in it.
I couldn’t agree more regarding the cases in general as of late. I actually said to myself during the episode “wow, the writers have just abandoned reality altogether at this point.” And I don’t mean that about this specific episode, I mean the whole damned thing. Invisibility suits and voluntary amnesia are a far cry from the realistic, compelling storylines that characterized the first few seasons. And yes, you can point out as precident that the S4 two-parter was far-fetched, but I’m on record as saying that those are among my least favorite episodes in the series, and for the same reasons.
Pointing out “Vampire Weekend” as an example is brilliant. Also, the S4 “supernatural” episode “Demons” dipped its toe into the strange, but then (and this is important) actually explained what was going on in a way that at least felt realistic.
I guess it just makes me sad because there was so much to like about this episode, but the ridiculous way the case unfurled just turned me off of it for the most part.
I think it’s meant to be an insult because apparently people who think C/B don’t need to get super sexy all that often should just go watch Disney…or something
Haha, yeah, I assume as much, but I’m willing to give them…
Plus, they’re watching ABC, which IS Disney!
…so you can stop with all the ads already.
I love all the “non-dates” at Remy’s, in large part because my wife and I went on non-dates for like two years before we actually got together.

Hey castleramblings and sinfonian-roo, did you guys watch the newest Gracepoint episode?
Correct me if I’m wrong, but Tennant’s character in Broadchurch didn’t have a syringe right? His medication was just pills?
And did you guys notice any other differences?
I was working, but I DVR’d it…
