Click on arrow to expand section
HONORABLE MENTION - POISON QUAIL
Poison Quail – The Squab and the Quail
Wrong person is poisoned at an elite resturant. The intended victim is a billionaire playboy who even Castle is envious of.
NUMBER 10 - A QUILL
Quill 8×20 – Much Ado About Murder
Ahhh, as Alexis said very early on in season one, the pen is, 8ndeed, mightier than the sword! Talking about “Murder He Wrote!”
NUMBER 9 - HIGH VOLTAGE TASER
High voltage taser. Scared to death
Not sure Castle is still up to Beckett tasering him if this will be the final result!
NUMBER 8 - GIBSON GUITAR
Gibson guitar – Swan Song
Lead guitarist and band leader of Holy Schemp went out a smashing success as his Gibson Les Paul. ‘59 Flame Top was the last note played on his head.
NUMBER 7 - CRANE HOOK
Hooked – Need To Know
SAVED BY THE BELL knockoff sitcom starring Charlie Reynolds is the backdrop but good old Charlie is actually a CIA spy. His cover is blown and Russian Mafia hooked him!
NUMBER 6 - GARROTE
Garrote – Last Action Hero
One of Castle action heroes foes down for the count in the manner in which his character is known for. Gruesome even for Castle
NUMBER 5 - POOL CUE
Pool cue thru chest – Clear and Present Danger
Holy shish kebob! An invisible man skewers our Vic with a pool cue. Hope he chalked up!
NUMBER 4 - TURKISH SCIMITAR
Turkish scimitar – Death Wish
A beheading, but not some run of the mill sword, no…. a middle eastern curved sword that is extremely sharp, befitting a beheading. Not that generic Sabre that split Tyler Ferris in Twain!
NUMBER 3 - UNMANNED DRONE
Bomb Toting Drones – The Human Factor
A secret government drone project kills a whistle-blower but who was operating it? An excellent whodoneit with the added drama of the AG office recruiting Beckett.
NUMBER 2 - 36D SULTURA
2/. 36D Sultura. Death gone crazy
The ultimate party animal and founder of “Girls Gone Crazy” is offed by an intimate piece of lingerie, a unique one at that!
DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!
NUMBER 1 - THORIUM BLASTER
1/. Thorium blaster Ray gun – Final Frontier
Are you serious? A authentic sci-fi weapon? Come on, it don’t get any cooler than that!
