Castle - Kill Switch

An investigation into the murder of a government investigator leads Esposito (Jon Huertas) to be taken hostage in a subway car with more than a dozen other hostages by a cyber activist whose motives, including plans to target a group of one-percenters and demand the release of his incarcerated girlfriend, seem more about buying time than getting the demands actually met. Through a hidden surveillance camera the 12th Precinct can observe events on the subway car while Castle (Nathan Fillion), Beckett (Stana Katic), and Ryan (Seamus Dever) race to find answers as to what is really going on.

Castle - Once Upon a Time in the West

Yee-haw!

Although Castle is far more psyched about the dude ranch than Beckett, the rustic old west adventure grows on the detective (even if she does expect a real honeymoon somewhere down the line).

Castle - The Time of Our Lives

The longer it stays on the air the more Castle becomes Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman (including a over-complicated failed wedding and spur-of-the-moment private second attempt in front of some very suspect green screen). In the style of It’s a Wonderful Life, insomnia, fear over whether or not he’s good enough for Beckett (Stana Katic), and a concussion lead Castle (Nathan Fillion) to awake in a parallel dimension where the two have never met. To get home a disoriented Castle will have to find a mystical Inca artifact which he believes is responsible for bringing him to his new reality.

Castle - Driven

Well, that was… different. However the lingering effects of last season’s finale eventually play themselves out it’s hard not to see Castle‘s Seventh Season opener as anything but a misstep caused by cowardice at either (or both) the network level or in the show’s own writers’ room about finally, permanently, putting Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) together. I thought the show was past the increasingly unnecessary and lame attempts to keep the pair apart, but it appears those days aren’t behind us after all.
