“Demons” is a marvelously made episode of CASTLE and I absolutely hated it. Okay, the truth comes out, I am a world-class weenie and creepy stuff just plain freaks me. Do. Not. Like. It.
However, it’s CASTLE, and even if I don’t like scary stuff, the episode was nonetheless outstanding.
When the star of a ghost hunting TV show gets murdered in the house he’s investigating, it looks more than a little scary. First off, while there’s plenty of blood – he gets his throat slit – and it’s all over the place, the problem is that it is all over the place with no blanks places where the killer would have been and taken it. There aren’t any bloody footprints, either. In fact, there’s no sign that a human being was in the house at all.
Naturally, NYPD homicide Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) doesn’t believe a ghost did it. Naturally, author and consultant Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) believes it could have been. And, naturally, both angles are played to the hilt until it becomes obvious that this was a human act, after all. And, no, I’m not giving anything away because you knew that part was coming. At least, that’s what I kept telling myself as the episode got creepier and creepier. Maybe not for most folks, but for me, it did. Did I mention that I’m a world-class weenie that way?
On the supporting cast side, Detective Ryan (Seamus Dever) and his fiancee Jenny (Juliana Dever) and Detective Esposito (Jon Huertas) and Lanie Parish (Tamala Jones) – who’ve been an item, go out on a double date that goes disastrously wrong. And Alexis Castle’s (Molly Quinn) affair of the heart with her boyfriend across the country at Stanford is getting sticky, leading to a lovely moment with her dad.
Oh, and on the romance front between Castle and Beckett, it’s clear the friendship is really, really solid, so that’s a help, but there’s nothing else happening otherwise. However, the scenes from next week may just bring us some hope.
