ABC’s ‘Castle’ season 6, episode 18 preview: Stana Katic, Nathan Fillion’s different path

Castle and Beckett -Right when it looked like “Castle” was going down a pretty amazing path to finally stopping Senator Bracken in his path … they give us an episode all about ninjas. Seriously. This is the weird thing about this show is that they never really choose to resolve some of their storylines at one time. Instead, they are more content with making you wait for a little while longer before bringing you “The Way of the Ninja,” which is a story that could end up having all sorts of hilarity. After all, Rick has some explaining to do after being at a geisha house!

While this may not be the funny episode that you wanted right away, this is the funny episode that you are getting … and you can read a little bit more about it in the synopsis below:

“When a Japanese ballet dancer is mysteriously murdered, Castle and Beckett’s investigation into her secret life uncovers evidence that she was killed by a ninja, and now that ninja is coming after them.”

All in all, this feels like it is going to be an entertaining story, especially since we know that Arden Cho (“Teen Wolf”) is guest-starring … and it’s ninjas. Seriously, how can you not be entertained by ninjas at this point? This is going to lead to some great Nathan Fillion – Stana Katic scenes where he tries to come up with some terrible explanations for some of his actions, and she’ll have to figure out what the real truth is. It’s pretty hard to get it from him.
