Storyline

Father Joe McMurtry was fatally shot after meeting his youth buddy, now big Irish mobster, Mickey Dolan. Taking the case allows Castle and Becket to escape from a disastrous dinner where his mother, as host, and her father Jim met seemingly at war footing, which spills into grim tensions between the sleuth couple. Calling at the only witness who may talk, Leo, they loose all means of communication while gangsters set chase to them, and Leo keeps slowing them down while probing them. Ryan and Esposito realize they must be in big trouble, do some slothing of their own and come up with an FBI link which proves the basic assumptions wrong. Meanwhile Dolan catches up with Castle.

Lanie Parish: Careful, too. He picked up all the spent shell casings.
Kate Beckett: Security cams?
Javier Esposito: None of them are pointing at this building.
Kate Beckett: Well this looks like the work of a pro.
Richard Castle: Someone had a priest assassinated? It's like a Vatican conspiracy. Ah! It's the DaVinci Code.

The Hunters Became The Hunted
27 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

LOTS OF SPOILERS. Do not read if you haven't seen it...

With all apologies to the Monty Python players, this episode of Castle was defined one chief thing: tension. Tension, and an overriding sense of doom. TWO things: tension, and an overriding sense of doom. And claustrophobia. Three! Three things....

I really enjoyed "After Hours," because it was a radical departure from the norm. Beckett and Castle, usually the hunters, became the hunted. As I've said before, yes, we all know they're going to get out of it. Still, I was on the edge of my seat. This entire episode reminded me a lot of the last five minutes of "3XK," when Castle realizes that he's alone in a motel room (Ryan having been knocked out) with the killer. And in both cases, a carefully worded phone conversation served as the SOS.

I'll admit to be taken completely by surprise when it was revealed that Leo was the killer, and a smart criminal to boot. If I may pat myself a little on the back, I did figure it out when FBI Agent Lucas said Dolan was not the bad guy, but rather a state witness; but that was about 30 seconds before Leo revealed himself.

Two bits of insight I will take credit for: when Castle said, "It's a Vatican conspiracy," I knew a Da Vinci Code reference was coming; likewise, when Castle started tinkering with the CB radio, I knew the word "MacGyver" would follow.

Along those lines, a few other noteworthy lines included:

Castle: "How about we dive into this dessert? Because honestly that death thing is sounding pretty good right now."

Castle: "I'm just saying there have been worse dinners." Beckett: "Like what?" Castle: "Well, the dining scene from Alien comes to mind."

Ryan: "Catholic school is like combat. Unless you've been there, you don't know." (I've heard a lot of people say that.)

Castle: "Dude. Where's your car?"

They even gave one to Leo: "I may be safer outside."

Above and beyond mere "looks" were scenes full of looks: the entire dinner party; Beckett's and Castle's bickering after the dinner party; and Ryan's body language from merely thinking about -- let alone being in the presence of -- a nun.

My only picky little complaint: Castle's speech to Dolan about not shooting Leo being what Father McMurtry would have wanted was nice and touchy-feely; a more direct disincentive would have been Beckett saying, "I'm a cop. If you shoot him in cold blood, I have to arrest you for murder."

All in all, though, I thought this was a great episode. Next week's looks to be a little lighter.
