Castle season 5, episode 17 “Scared To Death,” is based on when a young woman appears to have literally been scared to death three days after watching a “haunted” DVD, Castle and Beckett delve into one of their creepiest cases yet. To make matters worse, Castle becomes convinced that he too is marked for death when he accidentally watches the cursed video.
The series is based on when mystery-thriller writer Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion), who is called in to help investigate a series of copycat murders based on his books. After completely the job, he finds that he enjoys the experience sufficiently to want to continue it. Pulling strings, he arranges to accompany NYPD Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), claiming he wants to study and use her as a personality basis for his next book series. Once that initial case was solved, Castle and Beckett continued to investigate strange homicides in New York, combining Castle’s writer intuition and Beckett’s creative detective work. Over the past four seasons, Castle and Beckett’s relationship has grown even stronger as they’ve dodged bullets, captured killers, and solved countless murder cases with their unorthodox partnership.
Castle stars Fillion, Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Penny Johnson Jerald, Tamala Jones, Jon Huertas, and Seamus Dever.
