Castle ended on a shocking note last season with Beckett gunned down by a sniper at Captain Montgomery’s funeral, and Castle admitting his feelings for Beckett, leaving fans to debate the fallout all summer. I’ve just watched the season 4 premiere, “Rise”, and am happy to report that it succeeds at the tricky task of giving plenty of weight to that cliffhanger and launching the story in a new direction.
ABC has certain restrictions about what can be revealed, so forgive
me if this review is vague, but believe me when I say you don’t want to
be spoiled when it comes to a few plot points. The episode picks up
right after the finale with Beckett being rushed to the hospital. The
action and emotion during those few minutes is intense. Still grieving
for Montgomery, now Lanie, Esposito, Ryan and Castle are faced with
losing Beckett. Emotions are running high and reveal both love and anger
between different characters, resulting in a very strong opening.
