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: Last Action Hero

The episode is a spoof on The Expendables film series starring, you guessed it aging action heroes. Sadly, the success of those films weren't transported to this episode. Watching Castle becoming buffoon is never fun to watch.

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 — 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: Habeas Corpse

There’s always a moment of hesitation when it comes to Rob Hanning. The guy who brought us “Still” and one-half of “Veritas” has proven him a champ at some episodes while providing us with some duds in the past.

Recap: Castle, P.I.

Overall, this was a well-rounded episode and a good way to kick off the season. The private investigator angle is a good way to go to keep Caskett working together even if they're working against each other.

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: 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: 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.

Recap — Hollander’s Woods

"Hollander's Woods" was a double-ending episode. It can serve as a soft season finale with no major issues to resolve in the premiere or as a series finale. It was a satisfying end the season. The strongest one since "Always" in season four.
