Recap: The Time of Our Lives

Castle and Beckett may be married at last. While the episode delivered on the promise of them getting married, the story overall felt a bit off if not the standard gimmicky that's becoming a norm for the show this season. Here's to hoping the writers don't try melodrama when it comes to wedded bliss.

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 — Driven

ABC's Castle returns with an episode designed to re-launch the series as it heads into its seventh season. Only time will tell if the attempt to explore the title character came too late or not soon enough.

Recap: Bad Santa

So much potential wasted on the development of a relationship that fizzled and the lack of general good storytelling sent this story into the basement.

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: 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: Clear & Present Danger

Gone are the days of the smart and intelligent Castle stories. I miss those days where the cases made sense. Much like with the two preceding episodes, I didn’t hate it. I didn’t love it. The story didn’t work for me.

Recap: The Wrong Stuff

The best way to describe this episode is part Alien versus Mission to Mars versus 2001: A Space Odyssey. I’m not a Firefly fan so I can’t speak if there were any references there or not.

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.

Recap: Montreal

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.
