Castle has a lot to live up to after the way ABC has been promoting the two-part 'event' that finds Beckett, Castle, and Federal Agent Jordan Shaw (guest star Dana Delany) chasing a serial killer who's obsessed with Nikki Heat. Last night, Part 1 did.
Just as Castle got word that Heat Wave had been optioned for a film - James McAvoy would make a great Kevin Ryan - Beckett got a phone call from a man reporting a murder. One that he'd committed. They traced the call to Grand Central Station, where they found a dead man in a phone booth. Five shots to the chest. The bullets had letters pressed into them. Castle thought they spelled 'Kinki,' but Beckett reordered them to 'Nikki.' Another call: The man wanted Nikki to know the next part of his message was waiting at the Central Park Carousel. Another four slugs spelling 'Will.' Enter the Feds led by Delany, looking younger than she gets to on Desperate Housewives. Castle was starstruck - she's good at her job and has cool toys that he naturally wants to touch. Watching Beckett get jealous over losing Castle's professional interest brought humor to the episode, as did everyone finding out that Nikki and the writer tailing her in Heat Wave have sex in Chapter 11. (Note to self: Next time I'm in the book store, find Heat Wave and skim Chapter 11.)
