Castle Vampire Weekend S02E06 (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.

It’s Halloween and things are going to get crazy. A vampire gets staked. The vampire, Crow, was haunted by the image of a woman. This leads them to investigate an old murder, which is tied to the new one.

* * * * *

Nathan Fillion is dressing up as a space cowboy. There is some nice inside jokes for those of us who like Firefly. He gets a call. Beckett says that Halloween is the worst time for cops. The vic was staked. He also has fangs. He’s got bite marks on his thighs. The fangs are ceramic veneers.

The doc at Phantasmagoria knows the vic. Castle knows the shop. He buys his costumes there. The vic’s name is Crow. They go to Matthew Freeman’s apartment. He was quite and shy. His landlady thought the vampire thing was weird, but not that much. He had a blowout with a girl. They find her. Her name is Mistress Vixen. She’s got a coven. They go to the coven’s next meeting. Vixen says that Matthew was one of her lovers. They were fighting because he was seeing someone else. He was seeing Damon. She says that the graphic novel killed them. They based the graphic novel on someone who is convinced that he’s a vampire. His name is Morgan Lockerby.

They find Matthew’s dad. They need to find Crow’s friend Damon. Beckett doesn’t like making death notices, but she calls him. They go meet his parents. They hadn’t seen him in months. He dropped out of his design school. He called a couple of days ago. He sounded upset.

The prints on the stake match Lockerby’s. The use Crow’s graphic novel to find Lockerby. He’s totally off grid. They find him when he attacks Castle. Lockerby’s skin starts burning in the sunlight. Laney says that he’s got porphyria, an extreme sensitivity to sunlight. They find India ink on the stake. This leads them to Damon once again. India ink is used to letter comics.

Alexis wants to go to a party with seniors. Castle lets her go. Doc Halloway says that the drawings that Crow made are more focused on the woman than Lockerby. Damon was shot. His place was tossed. He was a werewolf. It’s a Halloween costume. He was a graduate student in forensic anthropology. He was killed a couple of hours before Crow. Laney says that it couldn’t have been Morlock, because Damon was killed during the day. The woman in Crow’s drawings are from a body that was murdered a while ago. The research that Damon had in his hidden file had a reconstructed image of that woman. The trouble is that the research dates from 2 years ago. The sketches date from 4 years ago. Crow’s family says that her name was Adora. His sister says that she was his own personal ghost.

Alexis calls Castle. Page’s drink was spiked. Castle comes running. He has to call her parents. She’s drunk.

Esposito says that Damon called the state troopers for info on that dead woman. The forensics say that she was killed 18 years ago with a 9mm. The bullets are a match to the ones that killed Damon. One of the drawings in his portfolio are a match to the tree near the murder site. Beckett runs backgrounds checks on the Freemans. Alan’s original name was McGenty. His 1st wife went missing 18 years ago. The woman was Crow’s real mother. Crow was killed in the cemetery where his mom was buried. Elizabeth Dryden. Crow brought his father here to confront him about the murder.

They question him. He married his nanny. It’s obvious that it’s not the father. It’s the nanny, or his current wife. Castle makes the leap and brings Mrs. Freeman to Morlock. He ID her. Beckett says that the nanny killed his wife to get the husband. She then killed Damon and Crow to cover up the evidence that they found.

Castle tells Beckett where his fascination with murders came from. He found a dead boy in the Hampton’s. He was his housekeeper’s son. He just punked her.

Page is angry with Alexis. She sabotaged their science project.

Becket punks Castle back at his Halloween party.
