In tonight’s episode of Castle Season 5, our favorite crime-fighting duo took on a more global threat than typically found on the streets of New York. Castle and Beckett investigated a murder connected to terrorist activity, but things got personal when one of their own got involved….
As Rick is trying to give Alexis her space at Columbia University, she’s kidnapped in part of a major terrorist plot. Naturally, the instant Castle lets down his guard down in regards to his redheaded offspring, Lexi gets in the worst trouble of her life.
It all started with 24-year-old “student” Hasim Farouk who was murdered when hit with a van containing Sara El-Masri. It turns out, Hasim was Sara’s body guard, hired by her parents to watch her.
Meanwhile, Castle’s trying to relate to Sara’s grieving parents, but there’s no need to try. Upon further investigation, they discover that Alexis and Sara attended a science event together and our favorite freshman was kidnapped with her study buddy.

After a few generic case episodes and a mini hiatus, Castle returns with an episode that strikes at the very heart of Beckett’s (Stana Katic) quest for justice in her mother’s murder.
At this stage in the game, anything pertaining to Senator William Bracken (Jack Coleman) strikes close to home for the entire team, so it’s easy to forgive them a few blunders early on.
With all they’ve been through, finding A) Melanie Rodger’s body burnt beyond recognition and B) a phone record that leads directly to Bracken seem like obvious indicators of foul play on Bracken’s part. Even interviewing the victim’s sister and speaking with the hotel manager where Bracken and Melanie held clandestine meetings all appear to implicate Bracken. It’s not until they locate the parking garage where she was killed and discover the meaning behind “XT3? that their perspective on the case takes a sharp left turn.
Taking two people with the history that Bracken and Beckett have and making them work on the same side makes for nothing short of riveting television. The threatening looks that pass between them during their first meeting while others are around are rivaled only by the private words exchanged by Beckett and Bracken afterward.
Christmas came early for “Castle” fans with the Monday, Dec. 3 episode, “Secret Santa,” the ninth of the show’s fifth season, which featured several twists, both in the case and Castle and Beckett’s personal storyline.
A man in a Santa costume, complete with an ID that read Kris Kringle and listed his address as the North Pole (a nice touch), was found dead, and while he fell from the sky, no, he didn’t fall out of his sleigh. Now that would’ve been too crazy for this “Castle” Christmas episode.
Edmund Smith, who was James Edmund Smith when he was a private equity manager at a big firm, was shot, and his neighbors, the Cabbotts, pointed them in the direction of David Dunne, another professional Santa who was a pilot. While he had threatened to kill him because he took his gigs, he insisted he didn’t shoot him and while his alibi fell apart, he wasn’t the murderer. Instead, David was Edmund’s getaway pilot as Edmund went to steal a clock and files from Case Commerce that night, and someone shot him as they were escaping. He made sure he got that gig because he needed to get files there that would set things right for families whose homes he had taken-and one of those families was the Cabbotts.
He had told Tim, the son, and sought forgiveness, and while Tim was a possible suspect, it turned out he was helping Edmund with his lock-picking skills. Another possible suspect was Case, who stood to lose everything, but he wasn’t the only one. Edmund had told his ex-wife, whom Edmund had walked out on after watching It’s a Wonderful Life the same Christmas Eve Tim’s father died after falling asleep at the wheel because he was working too hard, who was going to lose everything. With the case solved and wrongs righted, the families had a shot to get back what they lost.
Isn’t there an old police adage that the first on the scene is the first suspect? Had Castle and Beckett remembered that saying, the events of “After Hours” this week’s episode of Castle, might have been avoided.
After a terrible dinner with their parents in which both Beckett’s father and Castle’s mother managed to insult each other, our favorite couple got called in on the murder of a priest with mob ties. There was a witness to the crime, but when they went to question him, they found that the mob was already at his door. In the ensuing scuffle, they lost their weapons, badges and phones, and had to go on the run to protect the witness that they thought the mob boys were trying to eliminate.
Brooklyn at two a.m. is apparently a dead zone. Every way they tried to contact the station or even civilization itself, they were completely thwarted. It was amusing, but I had the vague feeling that they really shouldn’t have been trusting their witness, even if he did give Beckett some good advice about her relationship with Castle.
Back at the station, the rest of the gang knew something was up and kept trying to solve the crime while locating Castle and Beckett. As it turned out, the mob boss didn’t kill the priest; the priest was trying to convince him to turn evidence against another crime family. That second family sent someone to kill the priest, knowing that his friend the mob boss would go after the so-called witness and thus come out of hiding.
Our favorite couple came oh-so close to having their relationship outed to the one person who hasn’t figured it out yet in “Swan Song,” this week’s episode of Castle. For a woman who earned her way up the police chain of command, Captain Gates is kind of blind when it comes to Castle and Beckett. I mean, they’re not exactly being all that discreet around the station.
This week’s victim was a guitarist in a moderately successful band who happened to have a film crew tailing them for a documentary. Unfortunately, the murder was the only thing the crew couldn’t seem to catch on film, and it was up to our detectives to figure it out. But thanks to Gates wanting good PR for the department, the crew turned their band movie into a documentary chronicling the investigation.
Of course Beckett wasn’t comfortable in front of the camera, but Esposito went a little nuts under the lights. At first he was being kind of a big, goofy tool about the whole thing…busting out terrible and cheesy lines, showing off his body in tight shirts and trying to be bad-ass to the point of ridiculousness, but by the end he came around and showed the cameras the real Esposito, the guy who is a really great friend and partner to Ryan.

This week on Castle, it’s a sci-fi convention which is right in the favorite mystery writer’s element. Captain Riker is right there directing this special episode…that is, Jonathan Frakes. This show also gave many references to that other sci-fi show that Nathan Fillion so loves, Firefly.
As Richard is doing a book signing at SuperNova Con, Beckett shows up to check out a recent murder. It seems that Annabelle Collins was killed and stuffed in a pod at the fan experience for Nebula-9. Richard shrugs off that show but it seems that Beckett has a special place in her heart for this one. The mystery writer is more of the Star Trek type and, oh yeah, that Josh Whedon show. Beckett is certainly anxious to have a chat with star Gabriel Winters.
They learn that Annabelle was the force behind the fan experience. Her friends, Davis and Audrey, said that she was upset because someone she trusted had betrayed her and that she also received some death threats. Beckett runs into an old friend and he pulls out a photo of a Nathan Fillioncertain beautiful detective in a short Lt. Chloe outfit. Yes, Kate loved the show that much! It was great to see that these two murder solving lovebirds have something this quirky in common.
Perlmutter tells the team that the victim was killed by a laser beam through the chest. Richard is all giddy once again as he says, “A real sci-fi murder at a sci-fi convention!” How cool is that? They track down Nebula-9′s former star, Stephanie Frye who used to play Lt. Chloe. She wants nothing to do with the fan experience as she now has a budding career.

“Castle” Season 5 comes back from a short break with its fifth episode called “Probable Cause.” In a teaser last week, ABC released a video showing ‘cuffing Castle. Who is the murder victim, and how did the evidence lead to Castle?
Tessa’s roommate found her wired to the ceiling, a symbol carved into her forehead. There were no signs of a struggle or forced entry. She knew her killer. She was drugged and strangled, and her body was hung postmortem. The killer knew what he was doing.
It begins with a body. The body in question is that of a young woman who has been drugged, strangled, had a symbol carved into her forehead, and strung up on the ceiling with barbed wire. Esposito takes in the crime scene and pronounces it “pretty damn freaky,” while Castle offers the sophisticated analytical observation that, for the killer to have gone to so much trouble, it seems a safe bet that “he liked it.”
There is a redeeming quality to this episode, and that is that Castle is being framed by Tyson, who viewers might remember as the XXX killer. This is Tyson’s way of revenge or of executing a grand master plan. However, Tyson could have maybe framed any other character and it would have been great. An episode where someone is framed can be entertaining just not when the person has been accused of murder before. Now back to Tyson, it is great to see him return because he is such a formidable opponent. What’s great is the end of the episode, where Castle understands what Tyson is up to, and how he is not really dead. What did you think of Tyson’s return?
Because of the situation, Ryan was forced to spill the beans to Espo about the Castle/Beckett relationship. Kate headed over to Lanie’s to tell her herself. Love that the important people in their lives are now clued in on the situation. Now that this tension filled episode is gone, they can start making jokes about these two.

In “Secret’s Safe With Me” When a young woman is mysteriously murdered, Beckett (Stana Katic) and Castle (Fillion) discover her death may be linked to a repossessed storage unit up for auction. Was the unit connected to her death? Was something inside it worth killing for?
Beckett (Stana Katic) and Castle (Nathan Fillion) link the murder of a young woman to a storage unit up for auction the next day. Unable to get a warrant for the unit, with the auction already underway, Castle is forced to outbid the other interested parties to the tune of $3,600 (and a promise to name a future character after the mother of one of the other bidders), but to solve the case they’ll have to figure out what item in the junk was worth killing for.
After a bit of investigating, which led the pair to a local storage facility, Castle came to the startling conclusion that the blood-scrawled message actually referred to the number 317, which could perhaps be the number of a locker inside the storage facility. That was, indeed, the case, and it just so happened that the locker in question belonged to the dead woman’s twin brother, who also died under mysterious circumstances. It was also up for auction.
That all said, watching Gates and Beckett’s equally horrified reactions to Castle breaking the Gemini dolls was hysterical to watch. You can’t help but love Castle’s impulsive nature and flair for the dramatic, and how it gets him into hot water. Gates might hate him again, but at least we know now that deep down, Gates does have an appreciation for Castle’s work (and a soft spot, even if it’s for something rather questionable.)
The auction of the storage unit is a direct reference to the A&E show Storage Wars. We liked seeing the apartment of a habitual storage unit purchaser, filled to the ceiling with unsorted junk that he plans to resell after categorizing.

Castle returns tonight with a whole new epsiode called “Cloudy With A Chance of Murder.” On tonight’s show Beckett returns to the precinct after her suspension. Did you see last week’s premiere episode? We did and we have a full and detailed recap here for you.
Katic is so much more relaxed now that you kind of have to wonder if she was taking her role with unbecoming seriousness. Did she always want to lower herself to Fillion’s level and just have fun, but didn’t feel that she could so justify it so long as Beckett was all tied up in knots of frustration and self-denial? Whatever the reason, the playing field has gotten a lot more level, and their scenes together have become something to look forward to, the way Fillion’s scenes with some seductive, flirtatious guest actress have always been.
Kate is trying on a blouse when Rick gives her some coffee. They’re bickering over what she’s wearing on her first day back at work. She doesn’t want anyone at work to know that they’re dating. She tells him to act normal when they’re in public. At the crime scene, they’re acting like everything is normal. Lanie notices something different about Kate. The victim suffered a gunshot wound.
The case of the week conveniently dealt with the discussion of inter-office relationships. How big of a problem could this turn out to be? What happens if you break up? Do you switch to a different area? These are all questions that could make for great arcs for this couple – although the writers better not break them up anytime soon!
A local weather girl is found murdered. As per usual, there are numerous theories and leads chased down before Beckett and company find the truth. However, there is a problem. Miles is the one who killed Mandy because she was going to give their big story over to the EPA. Now Beckett and Castle mention all this police work that they did when they confront Miles.

Dial M for Mayor
In most of the pre-episode buzz for “Dial M for Mayor” the focus has been on how the mayor being a suspect may impact the Castle-Beckett relationship. And, to be fair, that is a pretty big question. But what does the potential loss of Castle mean for the other cops in the precinct? To try and get the dish on that, I talked with Seamus Dever (Ryan) about what fans can expect from the next batch of episodes…
I liked the opening, which seemed designed to look like a parody of a car commercial–a man at the steering wheel gliding through the city streets after dark, while a woman in the passenger seat slid around and tilted her head towards him, as if she were a little woozy, on some combination of cocktails and love. It wasn’t half sexy. Then the man parked and got out of the car, and it turned out that the woman was our case of the week. She was a professor of literature, but she’d deep-sixed her university job and had spent the last six months working a string of dead-end menial jobs, including a stints as a janitor and in fast food restaurants, and her most recent gig, riding a telephone at a phone-sex office. Castle and Beckett actually paid a visit to the latter place of employment, where they stayed a pretty good while.
But anyway, this episode was noteworthy if for no other reason than it was an episode where we got to see Castle and Kate at odds. This isn’t completely rare, but it’s not common either, and it’s always interesting to me to see them fight. It adds a necessary dimension to their relationship that I think helps make their relationship more believable and relatable. They are allowed to have realistic reactions to things, and this episode was a good example. Castle stood by his friend, despite how it might lead to him fighting with Kate, and Kate was determined to do her job regardless of the costs. I enjoyed that dynamic and liked seeing how they dealt with the inevitable tension.
