After kicking off its 4th season last week with quite a bang (the ratings were very impressive), ABC's hit show Castle returns this week with a rather unusual episode. Featuring what is probably the most gruesome murder yet (although the one in the pizza episode last season is a serious contender for the first place in this competition), "Heroes & Villains" will have Castle and Beckett diving in head first into the world of comic books and superheroes as they investigate the murder of an ex-con who was mysteriously slain in an alley. Our favorite dynamic duo believes a vigilante is behind the murder. Their main suspect, however, roams the city in a Superhero costume - and may just actually be a Superhero.
From the sneak peeks posted last week, we also know that this episode will be dealing with the fact that Alexis is excited about joining her boyfriend, Ashley, at Stanford - all the way across the country - as soon as possible. Castle is obviously not happy about that and I am willing to bet he will be struggling with this throughout the episode and will most likely seek Kate's advice on the matter.
"Heroes & Villains" will also feature the launch of Richard Castle's Deadly Storm, the official Castle graphic novel, which is already available for purchase.
