Just in case you were wondering whether or not the March 17 episode of “Castle,” entitled “The Way of the Ninja,” was actually going to contain ninjas, we have some big news for you now: It’s definitely happening. Also, it looks kind of hilarious.
The first photo that we have for you here from the episode (the 18th of this season) looks innocent enough … or at least as innocent as a photo featuring someone with a gun can look. You have Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) hunting down some sort of suspect they obviously believe to be dangerous. They don’t just do this sort of stuff willy-nilly!
Then, enter the ninja. We already find ourselves wondering how in the world this ninja can see what they are doing, and also why exactly they aren’t putting some sort of death-blow on Rick. Typically, the way of the ninja is to be a little more discreet than this. Who knows? Maybe this is an action shot and the ninja’s really about to scurry away or disappear in a puff of smoke.
You probably see what we’re getting at here when it comes to these photos. After an episode as serious as “In the Belly of the Beast,” we need a little bit more fun on the show, and this is the perfect opportunity to do that. Plus, the more over-the-top that you make some of the ninja appearances, the more likely Rick is to fall down a rabbit hole of conspiracy theories that drive the rest of the precinct nuts.
What do you think about these photos, and do they make you even more excited for this crazy episode to air?
