Recap: At Close Range

Overall “At Close Range” was one of the better one’s this season. It had a healthy dose of twists and turns that weren’t silly or complicated.

Recap: Cool Boys

"Cool Boys" is the weakest episode thus far of the first half. The story wasn't engaging and aside from Slaughter giving Castle some valuable advice on how to figure out what's happening with Beckett, not a whole lot happened.

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).

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.

Recap: The Blame Game

"The Blame Game" further proves that Castle and Beckett work better as a team. When they put their talents together, they're unstoppable and play off each other so well.

Recap: Meme is Murder

“Meme is Murder” is a cautionary tale on cyberbullying to sharing too much information online. The social message with this episode is loud and clear: be careful of what you share online and once it’s out on the world wide web, it’s there to stay—forever.

Recap: Limelight

In "Limelight," the investigation into a pop star diva's death takes a turn when the investigation reveals the victim was a decoy.

Recap: Resurrection

They're baaaaaaaaaack! "Resurrection" features the return of psycho killer duo of Dr. Kelly Nieman and Jerry Tyson. It was a highly dramatic episode that doesn't pull any punches.

Summer: After the Storm

Recap: Recoil

While investigating the murder of a young woman, Castle and Beckett find evidence that links her death with Senator William H.
