Watching the series again, I fell in love with the two part story arc’s especially since I did not have to wait a week for the conclusion.  So I thought we would have some fun and post a poll on which two-parter was your favorite.

It was bound to happen with her being the inspiration of a whole new series where a psychopath would want to go toe to toe with the real Nikki Heat.  Great episodes starting with the two story arc of Dana Delaney and manifesting themselves into the utter despair of Castle for putting Beckett in harms way.  In the end, we got to see a new side of Castle who it turns out not to be such a panzy!

SEASON 3 Setup & Countdown

Terrorism reaches the isle of Manhattan, domestic in origin masked as middle eastern in nature.  Not only do our dynamic duo get knee deep into the messiness of it, finding themselves in life threatening situations three different times, we also get two ‘oh so close’ confessions from Kate about her feelings toward Richard Castle only to have Josh do the right thing for once to break Castle’s heart!  But it does give off the promise there could eventually have the happy couple we all root for!

SEASON 4 Linchpin & Pandora

Here we get the first stumbling block in the burgeoning relationship that will bloom into Caskett.  Nice touch to bring aboard Rick’s first muse and to delve into a glimmer of Kate’s jealousy of the playboy last of the ruggedly handsome writer.  Nice storyline where Kate and Rick are in danger throughout, even with Alexis as Kate flies off the handle telling Castle to sleep with whomever he wants to while within earshot of little Castle

SEASON 5 Target & Hunt

This setup and delivery was totally different and a breath of fresh air.  Alexis is the key to both episodes as she is kidnapped but not for the reasons one would normally think.  We are treated to a roller coaster of theories why she is missing finally finding out the real reason is a unique character that is a total surprise.  It also truly gave us the proof of what we’ve  all knew, Rick is real and not a 9 year old on a sugar rush!

SEASON 6 Valerie & Dreamworld

So after four years of mid season two partners, Andrew Marlowe chose to kick off the season with a two parter.   It is memorable due to Castle proposing, Kate heading to DC to try her hand at a new job and a long distance relationship and a new way for Castke to ingratiate himself within her job and still get in harms way!

SEASON 7 Resurrection & Reckoning

So here we have the last installment of 3XK Jerry Tyson.  Appropriately enough it was done the justice of a two part swing.  This time he baffles the 12th with the assistance of Dr. Kelly Neiman.  His end game? Why detective Kate Beckett of course!  Just to haunt Castle for eternity!

SEASON 8 : XX & XY

Season 8 started off very promising.  The first half was very intriguing and the Kate perspective proved interesting and intriguing.  Then, the convoluted ending of the back end of the two parted killed the momentum.  Specific issues for me were the complete trust in Vikram,  the staged suicide of Allyson Hyde then Kate going down the rabbit home torching her marriage.  

 

so please vote on your favorite two part arc!
