Castle - That '70s Show

The stars align to deliver one of the wackiest episodes of Castle in the show’s six seasons. With Captain Gates‘ (Penny Johnson) out of town on business and Beckett (Stana Katic) in charge, the police uncover the remains of a former head of a New York crime family killed and buried in cement way back in 1978. When the only reliable witness still living turns out to be the victim’s closest friend (Jon Polito) who is perpetually stuck in the 1970s due to “pathological grieving,” Castle (Nathan Fillion) convinces Beckett to bring the 70s back to life to get the man’s story.

Scandal - The Price of Free and Fair Election

Picking up only moments after the close of the previous episode when Cyrus (Jeff Perry) chose to not tell the President (Tony Goldwyn) about the bombing planned at the funeral which he hoped would take care of the Fitz’s rivals, Scandal closes its Third Season with an emotional roller-coaster of a season finale full of twists, turns, and an ending that leaves the future of multiple characters in serious doubt. Immeadiately backfiring, and apparently handing the election to Sally Langston (Kate Burton) who survives the attack in heroic fashion pulling well ahead in all polling, both Cyrus and Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) are forced to admit defeat as election day looms.
