On Monday night’s all-new episode of “Castle,” we had an episode that was fittingly titled “Veritas.” It was, after all, an opportunity for Beckett to finally get the closure that she has been so hoping for when it comes to the murder of her mother, and to take down Senator Bracken once and for all.
Nothing for Beckett comes easy, though, and you cannot be surprised that the same went for this particular story. After being set up for the murder of Vulcan Simmons, she and Castle suddenly had to operate on the run. She was still cornered by Bracken and his people, and for at least a second (before we reminded ourselves that she was a star of this show), we thought that she was not going to be able to make it out of this alive.
In the end, this is a happy ending of sorts for Beckett despite everything that she ended up going through. Stana Katic’s character managed to be able to have her redemption and then some. Not only did she succeed in having Bracken under arrest, but she got to do it in a public forum in front of cameras, and while also also saying that he was under arrest for the murder of his mother. Awesome.
This episode was fast-paced, crazy, and everything that we hoped that it would be and then some. “Veritas” was absolutely nuts, and one of the series’ finest hours. It also means that there is one less loose end so that Castle and Beckett can finally say “i do.” Grade: A.
