Castle One Mans Treasure S02E10 (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.

* * * * *

Alexis is spending some time volunteering at the precinct. Castle and Beckett are on a new case. The victim had more than one wife. Well, actually, one wife and one fiancée. The question is who killed him?

* * * * *

A girl discovers a body in a garbage chute. Alexis is going to spend a day with Beckett, volunteering. The dead dude’s name is Sam Parker. He was shot and shoved head first down the chute. He’s from New Haven. It turns out that the vic had a wife and a fiancée.

The fiancée knew him as Jake Holland. She met him about 6 months ago when he changed firms. He was passed over for a promotion at another place. Both women have soft alibis, so they need to check up.

Alexis looks pretty professional and lets Beckett know that even if her father is a handful, she isn’t. She’s inventorying some unclaimed stuff found at crime scenes.

The wife’s brother found out what Sam was doing. He left him a threatening message. The brother says that he owed him money. He borrowed $20K. He didn’t pay anything back. He’s got an alibi. Apparently Sam was making less money at his new job then his old one. Why did he accept the new job?

They question the new boss. He says that he believed everything that Parker told. Every single reference that he gave is disconnected now. He went to some pretty serious lengths to get this job. They don’t know why yet.

The fiancée says that she recognized Helen Parker in front of his apartment a few weeks ago. She was staring at her in a creepy fashion. They question the wife. She denies going there. Helen says that they got a lot of hang-ups. She also had their number because she called her about the funeral details, and about some stuff that she gave Parker that she wants back. Helen isn’t giving anything back.

Sam was abandoning a sinking ship. The old company was going down the drain. The CEOs were rivals. The dummy phone lines are all registered to his old company. He was planted as a corporate spy. It has something to do with the way they recycle battery sludge. The old company can’t compete. Sarah Reed was an engineer on the team that came up with the idea, so Sam was romancing her to get the details. Sam was sending secret emails from a secret hidden account to someone. These were chemical formulas. He sent these to the CEO of the old company. The CEO offered Sam $1 million to get the research from the other company. A couple of months ago, the CEO cut him loose because Sam had brought back other formula, but they were never complete. He got an email from her the night he died. He gives some BS story, but Beckett infers that Sam must have told him that he got the real formula. The company didn’t have the money to pay him, so the CEO killed him. He wants to talk with his lawyer.

There was a catfight between Sarah and Helen. She went to Helen’s place to get her grandfather’s fountain pen back. Sam went to a doctor’s office every week. He gave Sarah a cover story, but went to a bunch of different addresses.

One of the addresses turns out to be another ID of Sarah Reed. Her real name is Lauren Branston. She worked for other companies with new identities. The boss hired her to get in Sam’s way. She was a specialist in corporate espionage. Lance was feeding Sam partial formulas, which kept Connecticut Recycle running in circles. Sam made her. He found her house in Long Island. He played along not to arouse suspicion. She killed him. She’s got an alibi for the night.

It leads them back to the pen or the thing that she was looking for in Sam’s study. Castle finds something in the shredder. It turns out that NY Recycle was just switching labels and dumping the sludge in the ocean. There was no secret way of recycling. Lance killed him.

The EPA is shutting down NY Recycle. Alexis tracked down the woman who the photos she found belonged to thanks to her dad. She looked into retired detectives and traced the daughter of a murder victim. Beckett is impressed and Castle is proud.
