It’s a lovely slo-mo lights-go-out quick-bit-o-battlin’ goodness featuring the principal cast members, but sorry, no Elizabeth Mitchell yet.
Before we get to that, though, we wanted to let you know that Derek Webster of Damages and Desperate Housewives and a guest star on a bunch of other shows has now been cast as a strong rebel leader who will clash with Billy Burke‘s character, who is on the run from the militia, according to EW who broke the news.
Now for that TV spot. It’s nicely sorta-arty and conceptual, and we can’t blame NBC for slapping the Olympic rings on the ruins of the stadium:

Following a somewhat disappointing 2012 premiere, Castle returned this week with "Dial M for Mayor," an installment that investigated the death of an author involved with Mayor Weldon.
Before we discuss the forward-moving episode, let’s give a quick shout out and congratulations to Nathan Fillion and the cast of Castle for their big wins at the People’s Choice Awards. Fillion won for Favorite TV Drama Actor and the show won for Favorite TV Crime Drama. Take that CSI!
After last week’s wedding pick-up artist episode, hopes were high that the show would rebound with one of its kooky and entertaining hours. Although it wasn’t the most intense outing we’ve encountered, it set the tone for the rest of the season and laid the stepping stones for important information.
Alexis is bored and is looking for something else to do, possibly an internship. The Mayor »
