Castle Season 5 Review “The Lives of Others”

Castle achieved a milestone tonight with its 100th episode. Not many shows make it past the first 5 episodes let alone make it to 100. So that is definitely something to celebrate. But I must say that I was fairly underwhelmed by this episode. A few thoughts about "The Lives of Others": The case of the week was of an IRS investigator who was bludgeoned to death in an alley. The killer had some weird infrared thingamajig that obscured his face from the camera, so Beckett and Co. ended up sifting through all of her files to find someone who may have held a grudge against her. They did some digging and found out that the victim was trying to get money and a new identity so she could leave her husband and start a new life. Ultimately, they found out that the victim’s husband was having an affair with the security guard who reported the murder. Apparently, she helped him stage his wife’s murder in that alley when in fact he had killed her several hours earlier at their house. He had recently taken out a $1 million dollar life insurance policy on his wife and he killed her so he could be with his mistress without going through a messy divorce. Ain’t true love grand?
