On tonight’s “Castle” season 6, episode 5: “Time Will Tell,” a grisly murder investigation leads Castle and Beckett to a suspect who claims he’s traveled back in time to stop terrible events from unfolding, events that will change the course of human history. Is he simply a deluded killer, or is it possible that he’s telling the truth?
The series is based on mystery-thriller writer Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion), who is called in to help investigate a series of copycat murders based on his books. After completing the job, he finds that he enjoys the experience enough 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” season 6, episode 5: “Time Will Tell,” airs Oct. 21, 10:00 p.m. ET on ABC. Spoiler videos below:
