For next week’s episode of “Castle” season 6, there are all sorts of interesting stories coming up. For one, we have a title in “Need To Know” that suggests something dramatic, but this looks somewhat hypocritical when it comes to a more comedic synopsis that we have below:
“With Beckett still in D.C., Castle and the boys investigate the murder of former child star Charlie Reynolds, who rose to fame playing the lovable nerd on an early 90s High School sitcom. But the case takes a turn for the strange when Agents Beckett and McCord arrive from Washington to take over the investigation, creating competitive tension in the precinct. But why would a washed-up actor’s death warrant Federal scrutiny? Whatever the reason, Beckett and McCord aren’t telling. Meanwhile, Castle has to contend with a new face at the 12th, NYPD Detective Frank ‘Sully’ Sullivan.”
For one, how in the world does Castle get roped into investigating again? What in the world do Ryan and Esposito have to gain from this? The one silver lining is that it gives the two guys much more to do that they have as of late, and Nathan Fillion has some great chemistry with them to go along with it. The idea of the two groups butting heads should be great for viewers, and probably bad for the investigation given that they will spend so much time fighting that the investigation could be stalled in some way.
As for the Castle / Beckett relationship, the biggest thing to probably come out of it is simply that there is a secret yet again between the couple, and this time around, Castle may not be able to get anything out of her. Knowing him, this is something that will drive him up the wall.
