The team's reputation is dented when Thomas Gage, a ruthless murderer whose identity proves totally faked, not only acts smug when arrested, but manages, as cryptically predicted, to escape and steal all evidence plus sensitive data from the NYPD computer. He's not only ahead of Castle and Becket to commit another murder, they are both abducted to a secret, deep CIA HQ, where Castle reconnects with Sophia Turner and their classified espionage past. The three team up and discover it's all about brilliant mathematical scientist Nelson Blakely, whose death was staged years ago. Written by KGF Vissers

Why do they keep doing this?
25 November 2019 | by rob hendrikxSee all my reviews

This show is based on the premise that Kate Beckett is an attractive woman. And she is...kind of. But the makers keep putting guest stars opposite her who are not only better actresses, but also way more beautiful. I've seen Dana Delaney, I've seen Alyssa Milano and now here is Jennifer Beals. Stana Katic can't compete with those women and comes off as a (jealous) wallflower. She deserves better, she deserves to be the star...well, if you don't count Molly and Tamala.
