Before Castle goes on holiday for the rest of 2013, we have a little Thanksgiving dressing, a big question for Richard and Kate, and a foul murder. “The Good, The Bad, And The Baby” isn’t a power-number episode, and that’s fine by us. It’s a funny, heartfelt sendoff for the midseason.
Castle heads into big game territory, with a high-profile therapist getting murdered for an even higher profile hunk of carbon. But “A Murder is Forever” goes by in a flash, and its comedic lightness is a very good thing.
The family who solves crime together, stays together, as Castle takes a restorative road trip this week. “Like Father, Like Daughter” gives Richard an out-of-doghouse-free card if he helps Alexis solve a 15-year-old murder and free an innocent man on death row.
After name-checking The Da Vinci Code and National Treasure, Castle takes its historical mystery sendoff in the proper direction: Raiders of the Lost Ark. “Get A Clue” has ancient treasure, a masked man with a saber and an awkward fruitarian. Guess which one Castle is the least excited...
A timey-whimey murder mystery? Yes, please. “Time Will Tell” is easily the most energetic episode of Castle so far this season. It may be a harbinger of an apocalyptic future in which Richard writes serious literature. Or so says the ‘time-traveler’ Beckett finds at the crime scene.
“Number One Fan” hits the reset button on Castle — if only for a day. A hostage-taker refuses to talk to anyone but Richard, and subsequently demands he prove her innocence in her boyfriend’s murder. So while the girl hangs out with a handgun and three trapped civilians, Castle and Beckett are on the case.
This week, Castle pivots from D.C. to New York. In “Need To Know,” Beckett and McCord crash NYPD’s investigation of the appropriately dramatic death of a former sitcom star. The episode also blithely steps into a world where Ryan and Esposito are fanboys of a fake Boy Meets World/Family Matter mash-up.
Picking up where the premiere left off, “Dreamworld,” sets the clock on Castle himself. Richard has only hours to live because of exposure to a secret military toxin (although he's conveniently asymptomatic). Unfortunately, their main lead on an antidote keeled over from the same poison. Castle and Beckett handle the setback with startling professionalism, and of course it’s a treat to...
Castle picked up right where it left off. In "Valkyrie," Beckett said yes and yes to both Castle and her dream job. Still, a long distance relationship has its problems, especially if it involves gross breeches of national security, government cover-ups, and overly complex yet predictable plots. Thank goodness Lisa...
This week was Castle's season finale. In "Watershed," Beckett must choose between the job opportunity of a lifetime and continuing to work with Castle and the team. Caught at a crossroad, she turns to her family and friends to help her decide.
Castle is all about secrets, surveillance and military strikes in “The Human Factor.” The episode provides the most technologically-sophisticated cause of death yet—a drone. With no body, no proof and no witnesses, the team must rely on their instincts to guide them.
“Still" is the ultimate shipper episode of Castle. The Caskett relationship is tested to the max when Castle's willing to risk his life for the chance to save Beckett.
This week, Castle is all about trust with “The Squab and The Quail.” Self-made billionaire Erik Vaughn is the target of a killer, and Beckett's the only one who can protect him. Meanwhile, Castle kicks up the romance, when he notices the other man spending time with her.
Castle's “The Fast and The Furriest” tackles a possible Bigfoot roaming the subway tunnels and backstreets of New York City. Who would want to frame the creature for a murder?
Did Castle witness a murder while secretly watching “The Lives of Others” from his window? With no evidence, Beckett thinks he's letting his imagination run away with him. We have an episode with possibly two murder cases and 100 reasons to watch!
This week's Castle delves into the dark past of Detective Ryan in “The Wild Rover.” It involves reigniting his friendship with the notorious Bobby S. and working with an old girlfriend. Can Ryan--aka Fenton O'Connell--solve the case and take on the mob single-handed?
After two weeks away, Castle's back to investigate a supernatural killer in “Scared to Death." With a nod to the horror genre, the team proceeds to crack a case that leads them from spooky motels to insane asylums.
Castle takes us to Paris to conclude the two-parter involving the kidnapping of Alexis in "Hunt." While tracking down her whereabouts, Castle's unaware that someone's following him. He gets a helping hand from a man he never expected to meet --his father.
Castle kept us on the edge of our seats in “Target,” the first portion of a two-part story. While investigating the kidnapping of a foreign dignitary, Castle and Beckett discover Alexis has been kidnapped as well. Can they find the girls before it's too late?
In Castle's “Reality Star Struck,” the team investigates the backstabbing murder of a reality TV star. Meanwhile, Castle encounters problems at the office, while trying to give Beckett a Valentine's Day gift. Will he accidentally ruin their relationship? Or worse, their partnership?
