Articles for Castle Season 4

After months of waiting, Castle finally returns tonight with new episodes for the show‘s fourth season. Will there finally be some resolution on Beckett‘s shooting, the conspiracy behind her mother‘s (and now Captain Montgomery‘s) murder, and Castle‘s desperate declaration of love? Having seen the season 4 premiere of Castle, I can promise you that the answer is at least a partial yes. How much resolution do we get? You‘ll have to watch to find out. In the meantime, however, there are some hints I can give about things to come in the premiere episode and beyond. Read more »
This week on the fourth season premiere of Castle, the doozy of a cliffhanger from last season is resolved but mysteries still abound. The most mysterious might be how Beckett feels about our favorite debonair crime writer. Also, there‘s that little lingering case about her mother‘s murder and the conspiracy keeps getting twistier. Good thing Castle has a high-tech computer board to keep track of everything. It‘s like Castle has his own version of the Situation Room in his study. Besides the messy feelings and labyrinthine plot twists, the episode also introduced a new "iron" police chief and a case so insubstantial that the approximate two minutes of screen time devoted to it seemed excessive.  Read more »
Castle kicked off its fourth season this week with a flurry of new revelations (Beckett knows about Castle‘s three little words!) and a bigger flurry of new questions (who‘s that Smith guy?) And yet there‘s a part of me that yearns for the fun times of season 3 -- you know, when all that happened between Castle and Beckett were teasing, and Alexis was just a little girl...Well, the Castle season 3 DVD has just hit stores (you can buy it here, like, now!) and it contains, apart from all episodes of the past season, bonus clips and deleted scenes. More on that later. First, let‘s talk to Castle, Beckett and Alexis -- well, Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic and Molly Quinn -- about what we can expect in the fourth season! Read more »
It‘s good to know that, on TV anyway, even the beautiful and successful people are comic-book geeks. It‘s even better to find this out about characters as awesome as Castle‘s Rick Castle and Kate Beckett. The revelations -- seen in a promo video for "Heroes and Villains," episode 2 of the current season 4 -- actually seem to fit these two characters quite well. Read more »
This week on Castle the show steps away from conspiracy theories to indulge in some geeky comic book-inspired fun. Nathan Fillion is never better, or having more fun, than when he can embrace his fanboy roots. Castle gets to bring out his first edition comics and name drop a dozen caped crusaders, all in the name of solving the case. His nerdiness was never so useful.In the Caskett shameless pandering section of the episode, a writer and his policewoman muse neatly mirror Kate and Richard, with a much more make-out filled ending. Hopefully our two favorite crime fighters were taking some notes!  Read more »
This week on Castle the team nearly fell to pieces trying to solve a murder case without a body. That is, until Castle and Beckett found a few too many bodies. Turns out the murder victim was set to be cryogenically frozen, so sometime in the distant future he could party with Walt Disney. Closer to home, Alexis gets a rejection letter from Stanford and spirals into a needy, sweatpants-wearing funk.  Read more »
Season 5 of the web series The Guild has proved itself to be a geek-friendly cornucopia of pop culture. With the many, many geek celebrities that have appeared thus far this season, the bar is set pretty high for the next major Guild guest star.So who will be the guest in The Guild season 5, episode 11? Read more »
On tonight‘s episode of Castle, "Kick the Ballistics," the long-absent (since early in season 3 anyway) 3XK serial killer returns in a grim way. Castle season 4 thus reprises one of the show‘s only unfinished murder plots. Will the detectives earn a better outcome than before? A preview video released by ABC indicates that things might instead be a little grim. Read more »
This week on Castle the shadow of the 3XK serial killer looms large over our favorite crime fighting team. While Castle‘s fun romps like the super hero and heads-on-ice episodes are always a good time, it‘s the more serious mythology pieces the show always hits out of the park. This week is no exception when Ryan‘s stolen service weapon allows the audience to find out more background about the team‘s most cheerful member. Seamus Dever, who plays Ryan, really gets a chance to shine in this episode as Ryan slowly unravels from anger and guilt. It‘s also great to see the team rally around another member. We all love Castle and Beckett (and Caskett, let‘s be honest) but it‘s nice to see some of the fantastic supporting players get a chance in the spotlight. It‘s also great to have an ongoing nemesis like the 3XK killer out there somewhere, ready to strike. My guess is around sweeps time.  Read more »
With Castle season 4 off to an impressive start -- featuring episodes about frozen heads, comic-book killers and the return of 3XK -- we have to expect that things might get even better in the weeks to come. If the news reported below is any indication, this is indeed what will happen on Castle. Read more »
This week on Castle Beckett confronts her feelings of jealousy when Castle gets all flirty with a sexy art thief. Not only was the episode really fun after last week‘s heavier emotional Ryan episode, it was also a great Caskett episode.  Read more »
This week on Castle, Beckett ain‘t afraid of no ghosts, but judging by his girly screams Castle surely is. It‘s a fun Halloween themed episode sadly minus Nathan Fillion dressed up as Captain Mal from Firefly. Still, it‘s good, spooky fun when the team has to solve the murder of a famous ghost hunter. Castle obviously is super excited to solve a real life haunted story while Beckett is the Scully of the episode, convinced there must be a rational explanation.  Read more »
It‘s a seat-clenching episode of Castle on this Halloween night. Castle and his mother are held hostage in a bank hold-up by a guy dressed in hospital scrubs. Will an attempt to make a deposit turn out to be a flat-liner? (I promise, that‘s the last of the lame puns).Castle‘s mom only wants a loan for her company. If she would only let Castle co-sign... but no; this just will not do. She‘s a "grown woman." Wait, hold that thought. Castle realizes there are people entering the bank wearing hospital gear and suspicious looks on their faces. Yep, the place is being robbed. Thank God Castle just so happened to be on the phone with Beckett. Dispatch is on the way. A gunman takes the phone from Castle and makes his opinion known by stepping on it. Beckett arrives on the scene and, of course, is kicked out of the SWAT van even though she gives some vital information. Five minutes couldn‘t have passed before the captain calls her back to the van. The gunmen will only talk to the "lady cop with the bedroom voice." This guy isn‘t playing around. Any wrong move and he‘ll kill hostages, starting with Castle! Read more »
This week on Castle, Beckett and the gang investigated a murder connected to an Atlantic City hotel casino. Taking a different approach to the case, Castle, Esposito and Ryan traveled alone to Atlantic City, while Beckett and Gates worked together from the precinct. In true Castle style, there was some mischief from our favorite triad of men, including their dressing up as Elvis impersonators. With so many amusing aspects to this episode, the Twitter community was highly active. Here are the top 10 tweets from "Heartbreak Hotel." Read more »
This week on Castle the boys go to Atlantic City but don‘t get to see Carrot Top, Beckett almost bonds with Captain Gates and Alexis accidentally throws a raging party. After last week‘s intense, fantastic and emotional episode this week is a lighter, more screwball outing. It also breaks up our favorite crime fighting couple, sending Castle off for some bachelor bonding while Beckett holds down the office with Gates. If you think this means that Gates opened up and the two made each other friendship bracelets, you would be wrong. Gates was just as tough, fact-driven and hard on Castle‘s contributions as ever. At least by episode‘s end she seemed to be lightening up a bit, even turning a blind eye to the boys spending some extra bachelor party time in Atlantic City. The guys, meanwhile, cracked open the case with the help of Beckett, some good old fashion detective work and a few convenient Elvis costumes. Viva Atlantic City! Read more »

Remember the mayor that Castle is always bragging about? It sounds like we‘re going to be seeing an awful lot of the man later in Castle season 4 -- the show has cast Derek Webster in the part of Mayor Robert Weldon. Although this increased exposure will not be so positive for the politician himself, more of the man whose power made the Castle-Beckett partnership possible must be good for audiences. Read more »
Apparently, getting shot and nearly killed by a mysterious sniper in retaliation for investigating your mother‘s murder is something that sticks with you. Viewers of Castle season 4 might have been wondering about that. Considering just how together and competent Kate Beckett has seemed since her shooting, we might have thought her trauma was all in the past."Kill Shot" proves that this is not the case -- Beckett has a long way to go before she is all better. If this episode is any indication, it is going to be a disturbing and intriguing journey. Read more »
I got the opportunity to sit down with Castle star Stana Katic to talk to her about the show, this week‘s highly anticipated new episode "Kill Shot," and the future of Beckett and Castle. I also asked her some questions from you, the fans, about the things you wanted to know. Thank you all for submitting questions -- I asked as many as I could.  Read more »
This week on Castle, a killer sniper sends Beckett on a post-traumatic downward spiral, but thankfully her friends are there to help her pick up the pieces. This episode will undoubtedly be on Stana Katic‘s Emmy reel because she did phenomenal work playing a Beckett coming unglued at the seams. Beckett is usually the stoic member of the team but in this outing her carefully crafted defenses came crumbling down. Katic has never been better or more empathic than she was in this episode. How about some love Emmy voters? Still this breakdown might have also triggered a breakthrough of the more emotional kind. And that could spell good things, not just for Beckett personally but for her future with Castle. Once the floodgates opened up in regards to her shooting some other issues came flooding to light. In particular, Beckett looks ready to deal with her mother‘s murder. It‘s long been her defense mechanism for keeping the world, and especially Castle, at bay. If Beckett really let‘s go maybe our favorite crime fighting pair will finally become partners in more ways than one.  Read more »

Next week‘s episode of Castle, "Cuffed," certainly looks like a winner. After all, episodic photos mostly show Castle and Beckett handcuffed together in a dark, creepy room. How will they escape? How did they get there? And what fun relationship drama can we expect before they break free? Three preview videos for the episode give some clue as to what might be going on in "Cuffed." Read more »
What happens when Castle and Beckett wake up with no memory of the past few hours to find themselves handcuffed together? Arguably one of the most interesting episodes of Castle to date. Having been abducted, Castle and Beckett attempt to piece their memory back together while attempting various ways to escape the confines of a dungeon. Meanwhile, the rest of the 12th precinct try to solve the case, which involves illegal breeding and selling of exotic animals. Here are the top 10 tweets from "Cuffed." Read more »
This week on Castle, Castle and Beckett work on their circus act, escape a hungry tiger and display some fun sexual tension all while handcuffed together. You know what they say; the couple that‘s handcuffed together stays together. Wait, they don‘t say that do they? In a break from some of the more emotional, character-driven episodes of the season, the midseason finale focuses on humor, fun and sexual tension. It‘s a great light episode of the show that still packs in a lot of great character beats and some development in our favorite partnership. The ease and comfort with which Caskett adjusts to being handcuffed together is also very telling. Hopefully very soon they‘ll be "hitched" again, only this time without the tiger.  Read more »

Every year around this time there is a tradition as old as lighting the candles or trimming the tree: harping about Golden Globe snubs. It‘s like complaining about the Emmys, only with the Golden Globes there‘s a guarantee that at least some of our favorite stars will be drunk at the show. Or at the very least they will be offended by host Ricky Gervais. So let me pre-register my complaint: Castle‘s Stana Katic should be nominated this year.  Read more »
The Golden Globes are known for embracing wild cards. The 2012 nominations will be announced Thursday, December 15, and it‘s safe to assume that the television nominees will include one or two surprises.  Read more »
Is season four the best season of Castle to date? It might be a bit early to declare this season a winner with only half of its episodes aired, but the show is definitely running on all creative cylinders this year. Castle has always been a fun procedural that relies heavily on the charm of its leads, but this year, however, the show decided to change the game. While still keeping the delightful Castle-Beckett charm, Castle has dared to shake up several key relationships and story-lines. There‘s no reward without risks, but Castle‘s creative risks have paid off in a compelling season. Here is a list of the reasons why Castle has been doing oh-so-right in this, its best season to date. Read more »

No one ever said marriage was easy. Marriage is definitely not easy on television. Fortunately, Seamus Dever -- who plays Detective Kevin Ryan on Castle -- is up to the challenge.

On Castle‘s midseason return, a man involved with numerous women is murdered. Thrown from a window, he strategically lands in a market among fruit. As Beckett and the boys investigate, they find that the victim was hiding a fake ID and $60,00 in cash and worked with a group of men who make a game out of picking up women. It appears as if the victim was targeting rich women for extortion. However, in the end, they find that he was murdered because of corporate espionage. Meanwhile, Ryan and Jenny attempt to do a bodily cleanse before their wedding by drinking only green juice.

In an episode of Castle that brought back questions about Joanna Beckett‘s murder and showed Castle trusting Ryan to keep secrets from Beckett, the precinct looks into the death of a young girl connected to the Mayor. Finding out that funds are being embezzled from the Mayor‘s charity, Beckett makes the decision to pursue Mayor Weldon as a suspect even though his guilt may mean the end of her and Castle‘s working partnership.

In the end, Castle once again meets with his mysterious informant concerned with Beckett‘s safety and he gives Castle hints about a working plan.

I have to admit, I didn‘t see the Sophia Turner reveal coming, mostly because I thought it would be too obvious for her to turn out to be evil. And boy was she evil. The only thing she was missing was a mustache to twirl or a small lapdog to pet. Read more »

As the season of Castle gets closer to the end, Rick Castle gets thrown a few curveballs. Or more to the point; he gets himself thrown into a frantic gang drama, adorned with three severed heads in a duffel bag and a dead kid named Glitch. Castle is saddled with rogue cop Detective Ethan Slaughter (guest star Adam Baldwin, making a Firefly reunion with Nathan Fillion!), who in one day hands Castle a gun, gets him into a bar fight with very, very bad guys, and even ticks Castle off to the point of taking a couple punches on the chin himself. And by the way ... Slaughter! Now, who would have thought this questionable fella would get a name like that? Slaughter is the kind of character a crime novelist like Castle dreams about; a rugged, maniacal wild card with unknown motives and a never-ending supply of one-liners. Played by guest star Adam Baldwin, this guy is here to create some drama before the season‘s end, maybe turn the entire police force on its head and get himself in some bad, bad trouble in the process. Watching this guy operate is exhausting, but the entertaining part is seeing Castle in a completely new role -- as a badass.  Read more »
David Lock is murdered by what appears to be a zombie. After questioning a woman who had a past affair with David and after being surrounded by a mob of zombie impersonators, Castle and Beckett discover that their murderer is Kyle Jennings. They find him dead in his home, or so they thought. Upon entering the morgue, Kyle rises and runs out, later ending up in the hospital with no memory of the murder. The 12th realizes that Kyle was drugged and compelled to kill, but they have no hard evidence to prove their suspicion that Tom, the woman‘s fiancee, was behind it. Castle dresses up in Kyle‘s zombie outfit and scares a confession out of Tom, who did it to save his relationship. Meanwhile, Alexis struggles to commit to a college because she is concerned about being too far away or too close by; ultimately, she chooses Columbia.

This week on Castle, zombies walk among us! Well, not actual zombies, but people dressed as zombies anyway. It‘s less exciting but more hygienic! As Beckett and Castle get to the bottom of the case of the zombie murder, they also start delving into the state of their relationship. Leave it to Castle to have Beckett and Castle hash out their feelings for each other without ever directly saying they have feelings for each other in an episode about zombies. Castle has always loved to tap into the zeitgeist with its cases of the week and this week is no different. Frankly, considering how Nathan Fillion is a geek god and everyone loves zombies, I‘m surprised it took them this long to get to the brain-eaters.  Read more »

A man named Orlando Costas is found dead after breaking into Montgomery‘s house, stealing his files, and being shot by Montgomery‘s wife. DNA found on Orlando matches that of Beckett‘s shooter, Maddox; the team realizes that Orlando, desperate for money, was working with Maddox and was hired to steal the files for their unnamed employer. Castle once again professes his love to Beckett and tells her about his deal to keep her alive. Beckett scolds him for making decisions about her life, which prompts Castle to end their partnership. All the while, the team keeps quiet on Beckett‘s connection to the case to prevent her from being pulled off. Ryan eventually involves the Captain to save Kate‘s life when a fight with Maddox leaves her dangling from the edge of a building. Gates then orders Esposito and Beckett to hand over their badges, but Kate chooses to resign instead. Finally over being defined by her mother‘s murder, Beckett heads to Castle‘s apartment where she all but tells him "I love you". In the end, Maddox threatens Castle‘s informant and swears that he will succeed in killing Beckett. Here are the top 10 tweets about "Always."   Read more »
