Castle - Death Wish

Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) are on the case when sonar operator and part-time tomb raider recently-returned from Turkey is found tortured and beheaded in a New York apartment. Learning that the victim had uncovered King Solomon’s tomb whose prizes included a lamp of legend sends Castle’s imagination into overdrive concerning genies and wishes while Ryan (Seamus Dever) and Esposito (Jon Huertas) try to focus on the more logical motives and suspects for the crime like both the victim’s partner and the unknown financier of the dig.

Castle - Fidelis Ad Mortem

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.

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.
