Castle 4.06 "Demons" Review


So that was the epitome of an incredibly fun episode, wasn’t it? I must confess that what I was really looking forward to about last night was the fact that we would finally get a glimpse of episode 4.07 "Cops & Robbers" that we have all been so excited about.

Maybe it’s because I have a new found love for Detective Ryan – I have always liked him, but he just seems to get exponentially more awesome and sweeter this season – but I just thought that it really worked having him and Castle paired up with their belief of the supernatural, while Beckett and Esposito stood on the other side of the spectrum being completely skeptical.
