ABC’s ‘Castle’ season 8, episode 2 preview: Stana Katic, Nathan Fillion’s new mission in ‘XX’

Castle Beckett --Tonight, the “Castle” premiere in “XY” brought us new characters, an interesting new case to unravel, and also a reasonably good chance of spider-nightmares for many different years to come.

So what is coming up on “XX” next week? We’re picking up almost right where we left off, and then flashing back to see more of how Beckett (Stana Katic) disappeared in the first place. Castle (Nathan Fillion) will still do what he can to save her, but this episode will be told more from her perspective after Rick got so much time in the spotlight the first time around.

If you haven’t seen it already, the synopsis for this episode can be found below:

“In part two of last week’s Season 8 premiere, Beckett’s side of her abrupt disappearance is revealed. After receiving a mysterious tip from her past, Beckett is launched into a fight for her life, with a team of mercenaries hot on her trail. While Castle investigates why his wife is on the run, Beckett must figure out who wants her dead, before they can finish the job.”

Obviously, there’s a lot of great stuff to look forward to in this episode, but from a critical standpoint, we feel like what we are probably looking forward to the most here is an opportunity to simply figure out just how much potential this season actually has. After watching the premiere, it is hard to say how great the show really is right now. We don’t know how Toks Olagundoye will be implemented just yet, and we haven’t even seen what the typical Castle / Beckett dynamic will be.
