Recap: XX

“XX” opens up right where “XY” ended with Beckett looking out the window of a seized drug house with the bad guys rolling up. Her and Vikram share a moment of reflection before they try to get some sleep.

Recap: Mr. & Mrs. Castle

The latest case zeros into Beckett's investigation in LokSat while Castle learns the startling truth about why his wife walked out on him and their marriage.

Recap: The G.D.S.

“The G.D.S.” picks up almost immediately after the events of “And Justice for All…” and sees Castle go on a quest to recover his lost time. But what he finds at the end of it all, may have dire consequences for him and Beckett.

Recap: The Nose

“The Nose” is one of those episodes that has potential and makes a good selling point at the very end. Stephanie Weir (MadTV) guest stars as a witness with a unique ability: a keen sense of smell that makes her a recluse in life but learns something in the end.

Recap: The Last Seduction

The boys need a buffer, Castle wants to surprise Beckett for their first anniversary and a murder prompts an investigation into New York’s elite.

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: Witness for the Prosecution

For the first time in series history, almost entire episode is set inside the courtroom. "Witnewss for the Prosecution" provides just enough entertainment and a bit of movement on LokSat to make it enjoyable.

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: Tone Death

The second half of Castle season eight kicks off the team investigating the death of an a capella singer.

Recap: What Lies Beneath

"What Lies Beneath" offers a retread of season two's "Fool Me Once" that lacks the fun factor of that episode. Part of the problem this season, aside from the split of the dynamic duo, Castle's bumbling attempt to win Beckett back is not as good as it could be.
