“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.
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.
"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.
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.
Overall, this episode was well-rounded. It had a little bit of everything for the Castle fan. It was good to see Castle with kids—no doubt this will probably spark another discussion kids in the future.
“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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
