Castle Till Death Do Us Part S04E11 (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.

The fourth season just started and needless to say that Beckett is still alive, although she’s different. The precinct is different too, thanks to a new female Captain. Breckett was incommunicado for a while, but when she comes back she’s surprised to learn that the investigation was shut down by Gates and that it made no progress. Castle helps her out, and they are warned by a man who received Montgomery’s files to stop investigating Beckett’s mother’s murder. It doesn’t stop Castle from continuing the investigation on his own.

This whole unrequited love between Beckett and Castle is getting a bit old. It reminds me of Bones and Booth in Bones. When will they get it on? Pretty cool episode that involves Castle and Beckett cuffed to each other as well as a tiger. It will end in tears.

Ryan and Jenny are doing a cleanse, no solid foods for 10 days. Some dude jumps to his death, naked, from a building into a fruit stand. He’s got fingernail marks on his back. His name is Michael Bailey. He’s a junior analyst at some financial company. They found the fingerprints from the woman who fled the scene. Her name is Holly Franklin and she’s a partner at some law firm. She says that the dead guy is Jake Hendricks.

She only met him tonight and was already falling in for her. She relates that he fell out of the window and then she ran away. Bailey was poisoned with a drug for rheumatisms. Bailey had sex with 2 different women within hours of dying.

All these years writing about murderers, I had no idea that I was living with some.
Castle

Ryan and Esposito tracked down the other women. There are a lot of them and they are quite hot. A month ago, he told all of the women that he went to Europe. They all knew him as Bailey. Bailey also took a leave from work for a month. For the past month, he wasn’t in his apartment. Ryan found Bailey’s fake ID for Jake Hendricks. He also found $60K in cash. Jake Hendricks has a legend.

They go see his boss. He says that Bailey took some time off for personal reasons. A woman tried to break into his office yesterday. Her name is Colette Roth, a flight attendant and former Israeli military.

I’m not showing up solo when she’s brining Captain America.
Esposito

The actress portraying Colette Roth has trouble with her Israeli accent. In the beginning, it sounded more like an Indian one. Then it shifted into Israeli. They found her and bring her in. She kept seeing him in the city and he kept ignoring her so she staked out his place. She reports that some ruffians took him hostage and then killed him. Now, her accent sounds South African.

They find CCTV footage of the abduction. Castle thinks that Bailey is a spy. Beckett is looking at Castle strangely. It’s like she wants to eat him up.

Ryan gets the plate for the car, and they trace it to Pablo. They were extulption or extortion. It was to scare the crazy stalker chick away. They are a crew of pick-up artists. They have a closing strategy. He stopped hanging out with them for a month. They followed him to a lame bar named, The Magic Bottle. Mike made them call him Jake and went after a married woman at the bar. He was working her hard. The mark was Lisa. They mention his ledger.

They find it. It’s got racy photos, ratings and nicknames. Max and Pablo alibied out. Castle finds out that Jenny banged Bailey, a couple of months after she started seeing Ryan.

They find out her name, Lisa Hill, an heiress. Bailey only used the Hendricks identity with rich marks.

Lisa Hill left for Montague at 6:30PM the night of the murder. Uniforms picked her up. Lisa says that she caught him snooping on her computer, so she kicked him out. He emailed himself some confidential documents.

-That’s espionage.
-More like sexpionage.
Beckett and Castle

Bailey was using his pick-up artist skills to sleep with Ron Hill’s wife to steal corporate secrets. Both Ron and Lisa alibied out. Holly Franklin worked at the merger as well, so there is a link between Lisa and Holly.

They question Bailey’s boss.

They tells Ryan. He says that they weren’t exclusive at that time, so it’s no biggie. He was even talking about this with Jenny. Bailey was checked in at one of the corporate safe houses under the Hendricks ID. They find the protein shake that delivered the drugs into his system. Bailey was there during the time he was poisoned.

Bailey worked the COO Amy Kempf. They got her on the security footage of the Oaks apartments.

Laney’s plus one is a gay friend and Espo’s is his hot cousin. Everyone is at Ryan’s wedding.
