Castle season 5 continues on Monday, January 21 with an episode called "Death Gone Crazy," and it looks like from the videos below that Castle is going to have to juggle the case along with some tough fatherly duties. 

In the first video, we find Ryan and Esposito interviewing a witness/suspect (aren't they always witnesses/suspects?) to their latest case. 

Here are a few things we know from watching the video:

  • Espo tries to cover it, but inadvertently admits that he watches films of the, ahem, "soft" variety. 
  • Their witness/suspect also appears to be their victim's body guard. 
  • Their victim's ex-girlfriend was at the club that night. Could she be the murderer?

In the second video, we find out that Castle has been Googling himself again and has some across something incredibly frightening: Alexis' vlog. Uh oh, methinks daddy isn't going to be happy with that. 

Here are some other things we know from watching the video:

  • Despite her son's reaction, Martha thinks Alexis having a vlog is charming. 
  • The camera loves Alexis, a trait Martha of course knows she gets from her. 
  • Castle was apparently far worse in his day than Alexis. Really?? I find that so hard to believe. Haha! Not. 

In the third video, we find the team coming across their murder victim of the week. The poor guy not only suffered the indignity of being killed in a ladies room, but also by a most unusual weapon: a bra. 

Here are some other things we know from watching the video:

  • The victim wasn't killed with just any bra, but a very, very expensive one. 
  • Esposito thinks it's crazy to spend $250 on a bra, but not a pair of sneakers. 
  • Esposito wisely shuts his yap when he realizes that he's digging himself into quite a hole. 

In the fourth video, Castle is again at his computer and again gets caught doing something that he's a little embarrassed about. This time it's Alexis who walks in on her dad watching what looks like sexy footage from the party where their victim was killed. 

Here are some other things we know from watching the video:

  • Alexis knows immediately what her dad wants when he mentions her vlog. 
  • Castle doesn't want Alexis to be haunted for years by something she did on a whim. Aw, that's sweet. 
  • Castle and Alexis are again bumping heads on his desire to see her explore life, but not being able to trust her when she does it. 

What do you think after watching the clips from this episode of Castle? Do you think Alexis will keep her vlog or will her dad talk her out of it?

Castle airs on Monday nights at 10pm on ABC.
