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: 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: 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 — XY

Castle got off to a very strong start with "XY." The dual perspective of the episode an enticing entrance that will set off a season long arc, something the series sorely needed.

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: 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.

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.
