CASTLE “Demons” Review

CASTLE (ABC) Demons Season 4 Episode 6

CASTLE “Demons” Season 4 Episode 6 – Ghosts, demons and killers – oh my!

Tonight only one of those things actually made an appearance in this episode and that would be, you guessed it, a demon. Nah, just kidding. Well not unless you count a guest appearance by Fred Lehne (aka as the Yellow Eyed Demon from Supernatural) who, coincidentally, was also tonight’s killer.

When a ghost hunter is found murdered under very suspicious and spooky circumstances, Beckett and the rest of the Scooby Gang set out to find the culprit. Beckett is her usual skeptical self of course, but luckily this time Castle finds a willing ghost fighting partner in Ryan, who seems just as excited about the possibility of catching a ghoulie as Castle is. No real surprise that every strange occurrence is eventually found to be firmly rooted in reality, but I also think that Castle had a point about the candle going out. Perhaps their victim did find a way to help them catch his own killer.

Meanwhile Ryan and Esposito decide to double date with their respective ladies. Everything is fine and dandy until Ryan’s fiancé Jenny has a little too much wine and, ooopsie, asks Lanie and Esposito when they are getting married. The result is that the couple decides to put their relationship on hold and this makes me sad. I mean if we’re not ever going to have Castle and Beckett together (and let’s face it, we all know we never will) can we at least have the boys doing well in their relationships? For now I’m just hoping that Ryan and Jenny survive.

My favorite bits..

Ghost…..Ghost Facers! Oops wrong show.

Aw, now who doesn’t love some good father-daughter zombie time?

Castle’s argument to Alexis about not dropping everything for Ash falling a little short when he dropped everything for Beckett.

“Maybe Mr. Sinclair finally met a wraith he couldn’t wrangle.”

Beckett giving Castle that look when he kept spouting off all of his Ghost Wrangler knowledge.

The boys planning a double date with their girls. Aw, so cute.

“Bingo? Don’t talk about bingo?”

Castle coming up with “Apparition American” as the PC term for ghost. Ha!

“They’re heeeere!” – Castle delivering that line in front of the snowy screen was perfect.

Castle doing research on a haunted house? Finding evidence of multiple killings? Finding out that it was apparently a demon that did it? …um, when did I accidentally turn on an episode of Supernatural? *checks DVR settings*

Ryan volunteering to go with Castle like an eager little boy.

“Maybe Shaggy will keep Scooby out of trouble.” – Haha! So I take it that makes Ryan Shaggy and Castle Scooby? Yep, that sounds about right.

Cracking up at the way Castle was sitting on Mercy’s couch.

OMG it’s the Yellow Eyed Demon!! Ahhh!…..oops, again, wrong show. My bad.

Castle trying to suggest that Beckett was afraid to go in the haunted house…just so he could get her to say “I ain’t afraid of no ghost.” LOL! Awesome.

A psycho killer possessed by a demon? Yeah, those guys can be mean suckers.

Castle making spooky faces by the light of his phone.

Wondering what exactly it was that Castle grabbed instead of Beckett’s legs. Teehee.. *dirty thoughts*

Oh no she didn’t! Oh Jenny, don’t you know you don’t ask a couple when they’re going to get married?

“Deep breaths Castle, it’s just a rat.”

Castle’s entire reaction to the skeleton falling on him. That was the loudest (and girliest) scream I think I’ve ever heard. LOL.

Oh noes! Lanie and Esposito are breaking up??

Aha! I knew it! You just can’t trust the Yellow Eyed Demon..erm I meant Detective Smith.

“Any more helpful hints you’d like to pass on to our killer?”

“So busted.”
“Ghost busted.”

Alexis telling her dad that his little speech about relationships didn’t help her, but his hug did. Aww!
