castle-clear-and-present-danger

Despite getting off to a shaky start this season, “Clear & Present Danger” begins a return to form for Castle that hopefully will continue throughout the rest of the year. Castle (Nathan Fillion) is overjoyed with the latest case involving a pool shark, a shadowy secret government agency, the Devil, and the Invisible Man, but Beckett (Stana Katic) focuses her attention on finding a plausible explanation of just how an invisible attacker killed his victim and attacked both her and Castle as well.

Well, that was… different. However the lingering effects of last season’s finale eventually play themselves out it’s hard not to see Castle‘s Seventh Season opener as anything but a misstep caused by cowardice at either (or both) the network level or in the show’s own writers’ room about finally, permanently, putting Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) together. I thought the show was past the increasingly unnecessary and lame attempts to keep the pair apart, but it appears those days aren’t behind us after all.

Things get serious for Beckett (Stana Katic) very quickly as she continues her late night snooping into the lives of William Bracken (Jack Coleman), Vulcan Simmons (Jonathan Adams), and the man who connects them (who ends up dead less than an hour after Beckett stops tailing him one night). Then Simmons turns up dead as well, after being tortured to death by a methodical killer seeking answers, only minutes after Beckett questioned him. And when Lanie (Tamala Jones) matches the ballistics of the second murder to Kate’s gun Detective Beckett becomes the target of a manhunt.

castle-law-and-boarder

Beckett (Stana Katic) and Castle (Nathan Fillion) investigate the murder of a professional skateboard artist in town for New York Street Sports Festival who friends and rivals both say was acting very odd in the 24-hours leading up to his death. Seeing as the victim was favored to win, the investigation begins with his main competition (Yani Gellman) but soon takes some unusual twist and turns involving the purchase of a 10 year-old camcorder, borrowing money from his mother’s (Claudia Christian) Albanian mob boyfriend (Eric Etebari) now out on parole (after doing time for a crime the victim put him behind bars for), and using the cash to hire another skateboarder (Jesse Luken) for his expertise at breaking and entering.

castle-that-70s-show

The stars align to deliver one of the wackiest episodes of Castle in the show’s six seasons. With Captain Gates‘ (Penny Johnson) out of town on business and Beckett (Stana Katic) in charge, the police uncover the remains of a former head of a New York crime family killed and buried in cement way back in 1978. When the only reliable witness still living turns out to be the victim’s closest friend (Jon Polito) who is perpetually stuck in the 1970s due to “pathological grieving,” Castle (Nathan Fillion) convinces Beckett to bring the 70s back to life to get the man’s story.
