‘Castle’ Episode Guide (April 28): Castle and Beckett Investigate Murdered Skateboarder

“Law & Boarder” – When an up-and-coming professional skateboarder is gunned down by a mysterious motorcyclist, Castle and Beckett are thrust into the world of extreme sports, where the death defying stunts aren’t the only thing that’s dangerous, on “Castle,” MONDAY, APRIL 28 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Guest starring is Chase Clarke as Logan Moore, Maya Stojan as Tory Ellis, Anabelle Acosta as Holly, Yani Gellman as Manny Castro.

When viewers first met Richard Castle — a famous mystery novelist and divorced father raising his teenage daughter, while being kept grounded by his Broadway diva mother — he was creatively blocked. But when the NYPD questioned him in connection with a series of murders staged to imitate crime scenes from his books, Castle found inspiration in NYPD Detective Kate Beckett, a bright and aggressive homicide detective with a fascination for odd and offbeat cases stemming from the years-old unsolved murder of her own mother.

Though they instantly clashed, sparks of another sort began to fly, leading both to danger and a hint of romance as Castle stepped in to help find the copycat killer. Once that initial case was solved, Castle and Beckett continued to investigate strange homicides in New York, combining Castle’s writer intuition and Beckett’s creative detective work.

Then, after four seasons of “will they” or “won’t they,” Castle and Beckett finally gave into their feelings for each other. Working together as a couple during Season 5, the crime-solving dynamic duo navigated new chapters in their lives, culminating in a cliffhanger in which Castle got down on one knee and asked Beckett to marry him. Season 6 will begin with her answer…

With Beckett as his muse, Castle has penned a series of bestselling novels featuring Nikki Heat, a tough, sexy and professional NYPD homicide detective, and he resurrected Derrick Storm — the main character of his first set of books — in a series of original eBook shorts and a full length novel. Castle’s much anticipated fifth Nikki Heat thriller, Deadly Heat (September 17, 2013), goes on sale this fall. The previous four mysteries in the Heat series — Heat Wave (September 2009), Naked Heat (September 2010), Heat Rises (September 2011) and Frozen Heat (September 2012) — all spent multiple consecutive weeks on the New York Times and USA Today bestsellers lists. In addition, the newest Derrick Storm thriller, Storm Front (May 2013), and Castle’s Storm eBook original short series — A Brewing Storm (May 2012), A Raging Storm (July 2012) and A Bloody Storm (August 2012) — all debuted on the New York Times bestsellers list.

In addition for the new season, a third graphic novel from Marvel Entertainment – Castle: Richard Castle’s A Calm Before the Storm – recently debuted in hardcover format, written by New York Times best-selling author Peter David (“Hulk”). The first two graphic novels – Castle: Richard Castle’s Deadly Storm and Castle: Richard Castle’s Storm Season, written by Brian Michael Bendis (“Avengers”) and Kelly Sue DeConnick (“Captain Marvel”) – continue to sell well since these graphic fiction adaptations debuted in 2011. All three graphic novels are on sale in comic shops, the Marvel Comics app, iBookstore, Nook Bookstore and everywhere books are sold.

“Castle” stars Nathan Fillion as Richard Castle, Stana Katic as NYPD Detective Kate Beckett, Tamala Jones as Medical Examiner Lanie Parish, Jon Huertas as NYPD Detective Javier Esposito, Seamus Dever as NYPD Detective Kevin Ryan, Penny Johnson Jerald as NYPD Captain Victoria Gates, Molly Quinn as Alexis Castle with Susan Sullivan as Martha Rodgers.
