- Title: Castle – Fidelis Ad Mortem
- wiki: link
Beckett (Stana Katic) heads back to the police academy when a cadet is found murdered. With the other cadets being the primary suspects, Beckett hangs around for a couple of days helping teach while doing a little not-as-subtle-as-she-thinks investigating. As last week’s episode gave us Castle-centric (Nathan Fillion) tale it’s not surprising to see most of the storyline is focused on Beckett this week. Even Castle’s appearances have more to do about her character, and her reaction to the truth about his lost memories, than the mystery writer’s own choices.
While the B-story finally bridges the gap between the two characters and removes the awkward disconnect between the pair that’s been the cause of the show’s weakest season, the murder of the week works well as Kate gets to teach, show off a bit, and solve a murder all at the same time. Now that the pair are on the same page with LokSat hopefully we’ll get more of them working together over the season’s remaining seven episodes.
