This week “Castle” traveled to Atlantic City to investigate the murder of a casino owner. Beckett (Stana Katic) was relegated to the sidelines at Captain Gates’ (Penny Johnson Jerald) request. It was a testosterone laden episode as Castle (Nathan Fillion), Ryan (Seamus Dever) and Esposito (Jon Huertas) headed to the Jersey Shore. Fortunately, there were no “Jersey Shore” jokes. Esposito was hurt that Ryan decided to ask his fiance’s teenage relative to be his best man instead of him. Castle, veteran of numerous marriages, tried to make him see that it had nothing to do with Ryan’s bro-love for him, but was simply a matter of wedding politics.
There were all the typical Castle plot twists and turns until the victim’s seemingly shady business partner eighty-sixed the guys from the casino. How will the guys get past the high-tech security system? Well, they could get a warrant or work with the A.C. police. But what fun would that be? Castle has the inspired idea that the three of them disguise themselves as Elvis impersonators. Unfortunately, the three of them do not get roped into performing on stage. But the trio of Elvises is a spectacular sight gag. Which of the guys do you think does the best impression of the King? Watch their grand entrance below:
Nathan Fillion will always be one of the hottest men on television, but is it possible that the reason he’s wearing a black jumpsuit while his cop buddies are wearing white, is that he’s a little too convincing as Fat Elvis? Or is this just Castle’s way of insuring he’s the Beyonce of the group? Please don’t attack the recapper for bringing it up, legions of Browncoats and Joey Buchanan fans.
