The corpse of sex offender ex-con Tyler Faris is found on the street, cut in half by a sword. Faris' victim claims that a man in a superhero uniform saved her. Even Castle doesn't recognize the uniform, which is eventually identified as Lone Vengeance, the hero of an Internet site authored by Sean Etel, a pseudonym. Actually, several people prance around New York in Lone Vengeance suits. The team investigates them and Tyler's enemies, such as his former employer Tony 'The Butcher' Valtini, thus proving new captain Victoria Gates's lack of confidence in them is unwarranted.

Nice episode!! Pure Castle!! I loved it, and probably all superheroes lovers liked it too. The twists in the cases are back, much to our joy! Castle is beyond himself with the "coolness" of the case and Beckett just keeps her objective point of view all the time. Nice twist with the couple of the "other writer and muse" and there is a great scene with Ryan and Castle, don't miss that one.

As always, the actors are great, the dialogs, the plot flows and general quality is great too. There is a side story with Alexis, though it is small, she will be off to college soon and Castle is acting just like the regular dad. And the new chief "Iron" Gates promises to be something this season, will she hinder the team or will she "melt" to Castle's charm?
