Castle Fool Me Once S02E04 (ABC)

I’ve been a Nathan Fillion fan for quite a while. Ever since Firefly, I was really impressed by his acting. Since he is starring in a new series which premiered last Monday, I took it upon myself to watch it weekly.

Anyway, what do I like about Castle? Well it stars an obnoxious, womanizing novelist. Detective Kate Beckett is a closet hottie, played by Stana Katic. Her hotness is kind of hard to explain. The actress is quite hot, but in Castle, she toned it down. She doesn’t wear much makeup and favours a natural look, kind of like “Oh I’m hot, but I could be the girl next door, BTW, FYI, I’m still smoking hot.” That’s how I described her in my mind. She’s kind of got the ex-catwalk model look going for her, which is quite good.

So that’s a good point. Plus she’s Canadian and a good actress. That’s always a good combination. Molly C. Quinn plays Alexis, Rick Castle’s 15-year old daughter. I don’t really know how old she is, but she’s a striking looking young lady. She reminds me of my wife, who’s a redhead as well. So I have a bit of a weakness for them.

Warning: spoilers ahead

The show centers around a novelist who is brought in to help deal with a string of murders which seem to be taken from the pages of his novels. At the same time, Castle has hit massive writer’s block after killing off the hero of his mystery book franchise, Derek Storm. Through Beckett, he is able to write once again.

Halfway between a drama and a romantic comedy, Castle is a fun show to watch. The characters play around a lot, making the viewer wonder when or if they will ever get together. It didn’t take Castle long to find out what makes Beckett tick. He uses clues and his imagination deftly.

ABC has started to release chapters of Richard Castle’s new book Heat Wave on its website. They are up to chapter 8 and I haven’t started yet, but it’s a pretty cool tie-in to the show.

* * * * *

A con man was found dead in his apartment. Strangely enough, he’s been pretending to be an arctic explorer. This wasn’t the only con he was running. He was running more than on at a time. This was another good episode of Castle.

* * * * *

A grade school class is getting a weekly interview with a polar explorer. Someone is behind him. He gets shot. He was faking the whole thing.

Alexis is getting some private lessons from a hot young male model. Castle isn’t happy. Beckett calls him. The guy was in an apartment. In the background, they see something from the Upper West Side.

The teacher Mr. Wheeler tells them that Fletcher pitched the idea to the school board. The school funded the expedition. With the help of other schools, they raised $50K. They’ve ID the building. They find a few passports with different names. He must have been conning different people.

Beckett hasn’t read the book yet. Or at least this is what she tells Castle. Fletcher conned Patty Schultz out of her life savings a year ago. She was committed quite a few times. They get her to the station. She says that she killed with her mind. Steven made her feel safe, even though she is quite the paranoid. That’s quite a feat.

One of Fletcher’s aliases was engaged to Elise Finnegan. She’s worth 100 million. The Finnegans didn’t suspect anything. There is no match on Fletcher’s fingerprints. Fletcher was the overachieving con-man. Beckett leaves because she has got some plans. Beckett has a bottle of wine, gets into the tub for a soak, and reads Heat Wave.

At home, Castle’s paranoia about Dylan, Alexis’ new teacher, doesn’t go over well. This gives Castle an idea. He tells Beckett that Jerry Finnegan might have gone a bit nutty if he discovered that Elise was marrying a con-man. He’s also got a new gun that matches the caliber of the murder weapon. Jerry hired a PI two weeks ago. He learned that Steven was a fraud. He confronted him. He agreed to a pre-nup. They get the photos. It turns out that Wheeler was in on the scam. They have photos of Fletcher and Wheeler meeting 10 days ago, when Fletcher was supposed to be in the arctic. Wheeler says that Fletcher had a partner. It’s Elise Finnegan. Elise says that Fletcher was a CIA spook and Wheeler was his partner. He was killed for his intelligence work.

They meet Agent Grey. He says that Fletcher wasn’t a spook. Alexis drops by the station. She is lived because Castle checked up on Dylan. Beckett offers a wee bit of sympathy when Alexis leaves.

They drop by the Finnegans. They are acting strange. Elise tells them that Fletch is alive. She left him a voicemail recently. They can’t confirm that the body in the morgue is Fletcher. 5 of his cards were used to book tickets. Beckett thinks that Fletcher is going to run away with Elise. They find that Elise has already gone. They find out Elise’s engagement brochure. Each of the guests were going to get one. It looks like the one that he gave to Wheeler. It was designed by Sue. She was the inside woman. The con is still on. Fletch is dead. He really was in love with Elise, so Sue took matters into her own hands. Mrs. Finnegan gives them the address of their bank.

At the bank, Elise just took out 1 million. She hands over the money to Sue, who tries to do a runner. The case is empty. Sue has been had.

Beckett has spent the episode conning Castle. It’s kind of funny to see. Castle apologizes to Alexis and they make up.
