Recap — In Plane Sight

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.

Recap: PhDead

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.

Recap: The Greater Good

It's a frosty reunion for Captain Gates when the team's current case puts them on a collision path with the U.S. Attorney's office and Gates's sister, Elizabeth Weston.

Recap: Fidelis Ad Mortem

"FIdelis Ad Mortem"is a rare find in season eight in that it focuses on Beckett and while the Locksat investigation is in the episode, it doesn't overwhelm it. Beckett learns a valuable lesson in that she's better with Castle helping out in the investigation.

Summer: After Hours

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.

Recap: Reckoning

“Reckoning” picks up almost immediately after where “Resurrection” left off with Castle and the boys arriving where an unknown third party at the behest of Tyson and Nieman snatched Beckett.

Recap: The Way of the Ninja

In "The Way of the Ninja" Castle and Beckett find themselves confronting a would-be ninja assassin while investigating the death of a Japanese ballet dancer.

Recap: Sleeper

Castle has meet its Jaws. And in retrospect, Jaws 2, 3, and 4 in the process. I would like say I was surprised by this but I’m not. “Sleeper” feels more like an attempt at sneaking in the Derrick Storm project than a Castle episode.

Recap: For Better or Worse

The day of Castle and Beckett's wedding has arrived but will their big day actually happen? Or will they be denied their moment of happiness?

Recap: Private Eye Caramba

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).
