Top Moments: Castle's Big Kiss and Oprah Meets Her Long-Lost Sis

Our top moments of the week: 11. Best Excuse for Facial Hair: White Collar mixes style and substance for its flashback episode. Fans finally learn how Neal met his love, Kate, and future partner-in-crime(-solving) Peter. But much more importantly, we get to see Tim DeKay rock a mustache! Your move, Bradley Whitford. 10.

Multi-talented musician/actor/entrepreneur Sean Combs (Get Him to the Greek) is set guest star in an upcoming episode of the series, currently slated to air this spring. Combs guest stars as NYPD Detective Reggie Williams, who hunts the streets of Honolulu for the men responsible for a crime against his family, but his one-man war for justice sets this fellow cop on a collision course with Five-0.
