Castle - XY / XX

Castle‘s two-part season premiere introduces some new faces as well as a new longterm obsession for the NYPD’s sexiest detective. When the newly-promoted Captain Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) disappears on her very first day Castle (Nathan Fillion) becomes increasingly concerned, especially after he discovers she is tied to a shoot-out in an abandoned auditorium. While “XY” follows Castle and the NYPD attempting to find the elusive Beckett, who makes no effort to reach out to her husband or colleagues, “XX” gives us Kate’s version of the story filling in gaps from the first episode of the season and explaining her odd behavior which is all linked to her short stint at the Attorney General’s office and her old enemy William Bracken (Jack Coleman).
