- Title: Castle – Tone Death
- wiki: link
Castle returns from a prolonged mid-season break with Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) secretly back together while hiding the fact from family and friends. The first episode back the duo, along with Ryan (Seamus Dever) and Esposito (Jon Huertas), investigate the murdered leader of an all ex-con a cappella group whose body turns up at a charity event Martha (Susan Sullivan) is organizing.
The murder of the week isn’t all that interesting but it has a couple of memorable moments (such as emoji deconstruction by the Castle family), and it is great to see Beckett and Castle back together (even if the show continues to go over-the-top in their attempts to hide the fact from their family, friends, and co-workers). As to the larger storyline involving Kate’s season-long quest, that is put on hold for now.
