“Castle” season 8 is not going to be airing a new episode on ABC Monday night, and the same goes for the week after! Unfortunately, you’re going to be waiting until November 9 to see “Cool Boys,” but we’re going to try to make that waiting a little easier now courtesy of the official synopsis. Take a look at it below via SpoilerTV:
“Detective Slaughter (guest star Adam Baldwin) returns to enlist Castle’s help in solving a high-stakes robbery case. But when a body is found linked to the crime, Slaughter becomes the number one suspect in the heist turned murder, while Castle has to determine whether he’s guilty or help to prove he’s innocent.”
The obvious appeal right away with this episode is the “Firefly” reunion between Baldwin and Nathan Fillion, who have previously done one episode of this show together. What we find particularly interesting about this synopsis is that there is not really any mention at all of Beckett, Ryan, or Esposito. These three are integral parts of the series, but it remains to be seen just whether or not they will have big roles in this story. Let’s hope that they do.
While we’re not sure “Cool Boys” is going to do a whole lot to propel the primary story of “Castle” forward, it’s certainly going to be a fun diversion and a chance to see if Ethan Slaughter has changed his ways at all. The last time Rick spent some time around him, what he was was that morality was not exactly high on his priority list.
