Castle: “Hunt” (Season 5 Episode 16)

castleBroadcast date:  Monday, Feb. 25th, 2013

As good as I thought the previous episode was, Hunt takes the two-episode arc to the next level. When Alexis’s friend is released, we know for sure that Alexis was the target. With the police unable to help due to the fact that Alexis is in France, Castle gets on a plane and looks up some contacts. When he teams up with a mercenary, some leads turn promising until a double-cross ensues. In to the fray steps Castle’s father.

Turns out Alexis was captured to draw out Grandpa Castle (great performance by James Brolin), since Castle’s dad is a spy with an ex-KGB agent after him.Castle and his dad set out to free Alexis, and there’s a clever twist to resolve the situation. The episode is well-written, the action is plentiful, and the kidnapping arc is complete. They’ve also opened the possibility that Castle has a half-brother, if they can convince Josh Brolin to appear! One of the better multi-episode storylines in Castle that I’ve seen in a long time…
