Needing help, the head of Narcotics (Carlos Gomez) asks Beckett (Stana Katic) to go undercover, taking the place of a Russian low-level drug courier (Britt Rentschler), and help take down a deadly new drug ring who has littered the street with six teenage murder victims in the past few months. When the simple exchange takes an unexpected turn, Kate finds herself abducted, on her own, without any back-up, and face-to-face with one of the mysterious Lazarus’ lieutenants (Al Sapienza) as she realizes the woman she’s impersonating is anything but a simple courier.
I do love this show. “Last Call” involves a 135 year-old bottle of scotch, a rustic tavern, and murder. This isn’t the best episode of Castle (oh, it is a darn fine one!), but it does have a little of everything that makes Castle work including some great moments for its two stars to shine such as this scene between Beckett (Stana Katic) and Castle (Nathan Fillion) before questioning a murder suspect.
The end is near as the current TV season makes way for summer programming and endless reruns. While we can’t keep track of everything fading into black, we will try to help you out with a few choice season finales. We’ll start with Castle.
Castle’s “A Deadly Game” provides another slightly off-beat mystery of the week while toying with us over the possibility of Beckett (Stana Katic) and Castle’s (Nathan Fillion) relationship moving to another level. I’m slightly disappointed, though not surprised, in the episode’s epilogue, but it does give you that shot in the gut to bring back viewers for another year.
