Castle: “Under the Influence” (Season 5 Episode 11)

castleBroadcast Date: Monday, Jan. 14th, 2013

It’s good to see Castle bounce back with a good episode this week. A DJ at a record release party is murdered. Initial signs point to a young 14 year old with a record, but it turns out he’s protecting someone. Esposito takes a shine to the boy, and the twists and turns continue to the unexpected murderer. It’s a great episode because there’s none of the fake drama that was in the previous episode, but what really pushes it to excel is Esposito. Part protector, part clown, part action figure, he sees something of himself in the young boy, and his desire to set the kid straight, including his threatening message delivered near the end of the show, felt natural and real.

Way to bounce back from a down week, Castle!
