Castle - Cool Boys

In an episode that doesn’t feature Beckett (Stana Katic), Castle (Nathan Fillion) is approached by his “old friend” Detective Slaughter (Adam Baldwin) to look into the heist of a prototype microchip. When Slaughter’s informant turns up dead Ryan (Seamus Dever) and Esposito (Jon Huertas) turn their attention to Slaughter as the number one suspect, but Castle chooses instead to believe the detective’s innocence even going so far as to steal Ryan and Esposito’s car to prevent them from taking Slaughter in for questioning.

Castle - The Nose

Continuing the season’s theme of having Castle (Nathan Fillion) work outside the department and horn in on Beckett‘s (Stana Katic) cases in an attempt to win back the affections of his wife (which he hasn’t even lost), “The Nose” centers around a priceless stolen painting and a witness (Stephnie Weir) who can identify the killer not by sight but by smell. Caring just as much about how the woman’s extra-sensory perceptions can tell him about Beckett’s mood, Castle enlists the help of the reluctant witness to help track down the killer and find the painting.

Castle - PhDead

Under the season’s contrivance of keeping Beckett (Stana Katic) and Castle (Nathan Fillion) apart while trying to artificially recapture the feel of the show’s earlier seasons, “PhDead” finds Castle using his private detective’s licence, along with his fame and money, to weasel in to Beckett’s latest case involving the death of a frat boy on a nearby campus. What the latest episode has going for it is Castle and Alexis (Molly C. Quinn) what it lacks are enough moments of husband and wife working together.

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).
