CASTLE: 6 Things to Know About the Season 8 Premiere
Castle is back on Sept. 21 with “XY,” an intense and dramatic two part episode which really hits the ground running.
The episode sees a call from a secret contact setting in motion a chain of events encompassing a powerful league of assassins, Beckett’s unexplained disappearance, and the disgraced former senator Bracken.
Told from Castle’s perspective (don’t worry, you’ll still see plenty of our girl), the premiere will follow Rick’s desperate search for his wife. Along the way he’ll meet Hayley, a smart talking, tough as nails British security specialist, some seriously tough antagonists, and some furry friends.
We’ve seen the episode a little early, thanks to our friends over at ABC, and have a collection of teasers to share with you. As usual, we’ve tried to avoid outright plot spoilers (We want you to enjoy the premiere as much as we did) but we urge you to exercise caution anyway, as one man’s teaser is another man’s spoiler …
Without further ado, here are 6 things to know about Castle’s season 8 Premiere.
First Day on the Job
Despite the mile a minute tone of the season 8 premiere, “XY” opens with a touch of romance, as Beckett prepares for her first day as precinct Captain.
No, Castle’s hair is not on fire. He just happens to have a smoking present for his wife.
Pay close attention to the contents of that cake. You’ll be seeing it again in a far less romantic setting soon.
