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!
