How do you jog the memory of a former mobster to find who killed his boss? You make like it's 1978 and boogie. Castle and Beckett done polyester and laced up the platform shoes to solve a murder mystery.
In the second episode, Castle and Beckett are struggling to find there way back after Castle's return. This episode while slightly better than than "Driven," still leaves a lot of open questions, something that could drive casual viewers away from the show because they have no idea what's going on.
Overall, for the first episode out from the new dynamic, it had some legs for growth. Every episode must be viewed in that lens. As promised by the producers, the investigation into LokSat is in the background and not the central focus of the episode.
This was a "take it or leave it" episode. It wasn't nearly as good as "Castle, P.I." but it was still better than the first half of the season (thus far).
There is nothing beneficial about this episode other than it serves as a means to fulfill an episode order and to give the co-lead a few days off. The plot was weak and left a general distaste.
For the first time in series history, almost entire episode is set inside the courtroom. "Witnewss for the Prosecution" provides just enough entertainment and a bit of movement on LokSat to make it enjoyable.
Castle returns with a change of city and jobs for Kate Beckett. After saying "yes," Beckett moved to D.C. where her job with the AG's office isn't going as well as she hoped.
Castle got off to a very strong start with "XY." The dual perspective of the episode an enticing entrance that will set off a season long arc, something the series sorely needed.
After three week hiatus, Castle returned with the first solo offering Chad Creasey. The promo for this that followed “The Wrong Stuff” didn’t do this episode any favors because almost immediately, people were moaning and groaning.
When Beckett and Castle are ambushed while talking to a witness, they are forced to on the run to avoid the mobsters after their witness.
