Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) goes to Mars (or at least to Mars One). The latest episode of Castle gives us a locked room mystery with a Castle twist when one of the astronauts in a simulated Mars mission turns up dead. Getting the chance to enter the simulation to investigate, a giddy Castle follows Beckett (Stana Katic) into the man-created Martian landscape in search of a killer.

Castle - Reckoning

In the conclusion to last week’s episode featuring the return of Jerry Tyson (Michael Mosley and Dr. Kelly Nieman (Annie Wersching) the precinct goes into panic mode as they discover the two lunatic killers have kidnapped Beckett (Stana Katic) while providing themselves a perfect alibi surrounded by police. Forced to play Tyson’s game, which includes a staged murder of someone made to look like Beckett, Castle (Nathan Fillion) throws all caution to the wind attacking the man the NYPD can’t positively identify as 3XK and later putting his life on the line by knowingly playing right into Tyson’s hands.

Castle - Resurrection

The murder of a young blonde woman in an alley raises red flags for Lanie (Tamala Jones) who quickly makes a connection to the victims of Dr. Kelly Nieman (Annie Wersching). Given his understanding of the case Captain Gates (Penny Johnson) is able to convince the D.A. to allow Castle (Nathan Fillion) to consult on the latest murder which not only turns up Nieman working at a practice in New York City but a man bearing a striking resemblance to Jerry Tyson (Michael Mosley) as well. With the physical evidence of Tyson’s crimes missing or destroyed, and no physical evidence connecting either of them to the current murder investigation, Beckett (Stana Katic) is fighting the clock to prove that the man before them is Jerry Tyson and responsible for yet another murder.

Castle - I, Witness

For the second time in the series history the show casts Castle (Nathan Fillion) as a witness to a murder without any evidence (like say a body) to back-up his story. In true Rear Window style, the previous episode centered around an elaborate play set-up for an injured Castle’s benefit. Here the private investigator is hired by an old friend whose murder he witnesses… although even he begins to doubt just what exactly he saw.

The misadventures of Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) Private Investigator continue in the latest episode.

Castle - Castle, P.I.

Barred from officially working with the NYPD any longer, Castle (Nathan Fillion) surprises Beckett (Stana Katic) by showing up at her crime scene with his newly acquired private investigator’s license. Unable to work the case of the murdered private school educator together, the pair each follow their own leads only to have Castle continually beating Beckett, Esposito (Jon Huertas), and Ryan (Seamus Dever) on uncovering what the woman was up to in the days before her death and how her murder ties back to 15 year-old death on a college campus.

Castle - Last Action Hero

When a washed-up 80s action star turns up dead on the eve of his possible big return Beckett (Stana Katic) and Castle (Nathan Fillion) investigate the actor’s world including his rumored past as a covert agent for the Spanish Government. Some investigating by Esposito (Jon Huertas) and Ryan (Seamus Dever) uncovers some odd behavior in the week leading to the victim’s murder including contacting an old source within the Spanish Government (Gonzalo Escudero), miscellaneous surveillance equipment, a secret meeting with his ex-wife (Kathleen York), and choosing to hole up in a crappy apartment under an assumed name.

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! To solve a murder of a woman who was poisoned in Arizona only to die several hours later after getting off a plane in New York, Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) head west to honeymoon at a dude ranch in hopes of discovering what led to the young woman’s death. 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.
