Synopsis:



A dead man wearing vampire teeth is discovered in a graveyard with a stake through his heart. The probe leads Castle and Beckett to a group of vampire fetishists, and clues are revealed in a graphic novel the victim had been writing.



Halloween episode and I believe this will feature the "costume" that you have been waiting to see.

It's weird, my Verizon FIOS DVR's guide claims that Monday Night Football is on tonight instead of Castle. I thought Monday Night Football moved to ESPN. Does anyone with FIOS see this on their schedule tonight?

Do you live in either the Philadelphia or Washington TV markets?

If your hometeam football team is playing, the local ABC affiliate will broadcast the ESPN MNF feed.

Thanks Chew. Yeah, I get the Philly stations. I'm the one person in South Jersey who doesn't give a crap about the Eagles. Great. Does Hulu generally put the new episode up by the next day?

When the Packers play on Monday night, my ABC affiliate plays Castle at like 2AM Tuesday morning.

Did you check later in your schedule?

WHAT?!?!??!?! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

The Redskins SUCK! Even more so for blocking out Castle.

Yep, I did a search on my guide and it says the only episodes on the schedule are next week's episode on Nov. 2 and the week after on Nov. 9. This pisses me off, especially since I was looking forward to the Halloween costume.

EDIT: Just checked 6 ABC's website, and it looks Castle will be rebroadcasting Wednesday morning at 1:05 am. The FIOS guide schedule just hasn't updated yet apparently.

Just an awesome sight.

"Didn't you wear that like 5 years ago? "

That whole scene was fan-firefly-tastic.

Maybe all us Firefly fans do need to move on. ;)


I have to say it was a solid ep., but I kind of got lost towards the end. How exactly did the crazy vampire guy know the identity of the killer?

I think they said he hung out in the cemetery and saw the boy there, therefore saw when he was killed. I could be wrong .

I need to re-watch , I didn't see the easter egg. Unless it was the egg? :confused:

The costume was the egg, unless there was some hidden Firefly reference in a previous episode.

EDIT:

Nathan Fillion said on his Twitter page that the browncoat was not the egg, so it's still out there.

Besides the obvious Malcolm Reynolds reference, the Hispanic dective's costume was his Army outfit from Generation Kill, and the other cop dressed as the doctor was on General Hospital :lol:

I thought they were Dexter and Call of Duty. And what a wasted opportunity to have Beckett sporting something hot.

The episode was the shit! I swear I heard him tell the daughter to dress as "Inara"

I think the eppisodes are getting a bit cumbersome. So the guy saw his mom murdered at 2, had images of her all his life and didnt know it. Than Researched his mothers death himself and found out what exactley? Proof his step mom had done it?

That's about right, Ravenous. His cowriter on the comic, who was studying forensics, recognized the facial reconstruction from his artwork. They then investigated and discovered that it was his real mother, who he had no idea existed. In the initial interview with the parents they said he left had left a message a couple of days earlier and he was upset about something but they never found out what it was. Obviously, the step-mother did find out. It's not clear if they figured out she was the killer, although once the guy saw the pictures of where the body was buried it's likely that he realized he witnessed her death and put things together.

Those first 60 seconds were just GOLD. I laughed so hard, and my wife just looked at me like I was nuts.

"Space Cowboy". :D

I love this show, but for some reason I can never stay awake throughout the hour. I've seen every episode of Castle, and I always have to come back twice, or even three or four times to finish watching one episode. That always happened to me with Pushing Daisies as well. I've never made it all the way through a single episode of either show without falling out. I can sit through all the other hour-long dramas though.

Anyway, I enjoyed the episode. But I think it was a bit far-fetched as well.

There's so much sexual tension between the two of them it's ridiculous. When they finally decide to get busy, they need to air that episode on cable only :-)

A Firefly and a Buffy reference for Nathan!

From the way I understood it the step mom realized Crow was just about to figure out what had happened to his real mom and killed him before he could put it all together. How she knew? I'm assuming she's the one who took Crows "upset" call and realized what it really meant. With the exception of the first minute it was a mediocre episode.

So, what was the egg?

I wonder if that was an old Firefly-used costume, or if wardrobe made it just for Castle.

I don't know but I'm betting Nathan kept at least one.

LOL! I watched it last night and thought I'd maybe had a cocktail too many. So I didn't delete it, figuring I'd re-watch it. Glad I wasn't the only one EITHER! :lol:

I assume it was the trip to the fangmaster after reading this and I'm kicking myself for not getting the joke immediately.

He did. Funny since he appears on the show's final season as well.

Yeah, I found it hard to follow and kind of checked out by the end. I think the case was just boring.

This was probably the best episode of Castle yet. Yes the case was a little confusing, but all of the interactions between the characters where hitting on all cylinders. Add to that the Buffy and Firefly jokes and it was just priceless.

"Space Cowboy?" indeed. :lol:

I read "Heat Wave" by "Richard Castle", as while it was a pretty good read, it really showed me how it takes someone with charisma like Fillion to play the part. In the book, the role of Castle is given to a reporter, and he would come off very annoying only for I was picturing Fillion acting as the character. Without thinking about the Castle role on the show, the character in the book would have been pretty abrasive.
