Castle Love Me Dead S02E09 (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 named Castle, 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 favors 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.

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 dead ADA leads the team to investigate a prostitution racket, which actually involved the ADA, much to everyone’s surprise.

* * * * *

Some dude is thrown off a building. Castle hears Alexis talking to someone on the phone about him freaking out. She doesn’t tell him what it is. The victim is Jack Buckley, an ADA. He’s the lawyer that every cop wanted to try their case. He’s got an ex-wife and two hot assistants. One of them has got laser green eyes. Some guy was brought in by a cop named Frank Curtis. He was in a shouting match with Buckley. They trace Knox, the dude in question. He was at an AA meeting and has got Reverend Danny Miller as an alibi.

Some guy was hanging around Buckley’s place. His name is Norman Jessup. His conviction was overturned and he was released two weeks ago. Buckley was preparing to retry him. They find Jessup in a bar fight. Castle takes one on the face. Buckley made a mystery trip. Jessup was following him around. He says that Buckley met some Asian dude and had a screaming match.

On the way there, Alexis calls Beckett. She needs her advice and wants to meet up. The guy is Buckley’s ex-brother-in-law. He says that he was attacked two nights ago. He was told to give Jack a message to back off from Danton. He was being blackmailed for liking call girls. Danton is their pimp. They have Paul call the number. One of Buckley’s assistants arrives. She’s the call girl. She says that Jack was her client for over a year. She was going through law school by being an escort. When Jack found out, he offered her a paid internship to get out. She says that she doesn’t know who Danton is. There is a firewall between her and Danton.

Castle tries to find out about Alexis’ secret. He’s not having much luck. Beckett isn’t talking either. She’s kind of liking it.

They find out that Danton is Dantonelli and is currently serving time in prison. He doesn’t know who the new Danton is. They find out that Buckley was Danton. He offered Dantonelli 13 years off in exchange for his client list. They think that someone was trying to take over from Buckley.

They go back to see Scarlett. The new Danton used to work for Buckley in order to keep the business in line. She kept lying to them. His name was John Knox, the dude that Buckley had dragged in and had a shouting match.

Castle surmises that Buckley found Knox through his connections to the legal system. Knox is a criminal who was able to stay out of jail.

Castle finds a beat up Scarlett at his place. She says that Knox killed Buckley. She tells him that the Reverend is a client. Knox is blackmailing him to give his alibi.

The next day, Castle finds out that a man checked out Scarlett right after she was checked in by him. They had Knox under surveillance, but he somehow slipped away during the night. Castle gets a frantic call from Scarlett. She has been abducted by Knox. They arrive in time to see Scarlett shooting Knox.

It looks to me like Scarlett was the new Danton, not Knox. The reason why is because it looks too picture perfect.

Knox couldn’t have beaten up Scarlett because he was being followed by the cops. Scarlett was in on it from the start. She was in Buckley’s office to man the phone on the escort service. She was running the show and trying to take it away from Buckley. They catch her running her service.

Alexis tells Castle that her school is starting an exchange program in France. She was thinking of applying to it. She decided not to because his birthday was coming up. Alexis tells him that she’s thinking of applying to Oxford.
