Great self-referencing Firefly laugh for fans, 15 April 2016
Author: pensman from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Right from the start you know this is a fun episode as Castle bursts through the door wearing his Halloween costume: A space cowboy outfit that his daughter chides him for wearing as A) there are no cows in space; B) He wore the same outfit five years ago; and C) It's time for him to move on. Great self-referencing Firefly laugh for fans. And then there is the mystery: who put a stake through the body of a wannabe vampire fan; A fan who altered his teeth into fangs. And the clues may be in the pages of a comic book the victim was working on. The suspect they first pick up, Morlock (Robert Arbogast) suffers from a type of porphyria also know as Vampire Disease. To complicate matters a second victim is found, this one dressed as a werewolf. And as the crew is attempting to solve the murders, they are also preparing for one of Castle's legendary Halloween parties. A good mystery to solve with a great tongue-in-cheek subplots.
