It’s a Castle in crisis tonight on ABC. We’ve seen “Target” and it’s a good, emotional, suspenseful and intense hour of TV. It really shows off the love Castle and Alexis have for each other. In fact, currently has a photo gallery of some father/daughter moments that you might want to check out.

Synopsis for “Target”: In the first of a two-episode story arc, Castle & Beckett begin a murder investigation that also exposes a plot to kidnap the daughter of a wealthy Middle Eastern businessman. Dylan Walsh guest stars as FBI Agent Harris, an even-keeled professional brought in to help find the kidnappers.

We don’t want to give away much but here’s some of what you can expect:

  • You have to know from the preview that aired after last week’s episode, that Alexis is in serious danger. She’s been kidnapped. Now whether she’s the target or in the wrong place at the wrong time remains to be seen.
  • Get ready for a Rick Castle you’ve never seen before. He’s scared for his daughter. And at one point in the episode, he’s scary in the name of his daughter. Haven’t seen Nathan Fillion like that since he played Reverend Caleb in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Even though Castle’s situation is every parent’s nightmare, it’s good to see Fillion stretch his acting muscles in this way. He does a damn good job.
  • Look for Beckett to be supportive of Castle, of course. We feel like she’s his rock. But she has to be focused on the matter at hand as well. The goal is to get Alexis back. But there are a couple of moments where we felt the Caskett love shining through.
  • Alexis is definitely her father’s daughter. She’s strong, resourceful and awesome.

  • Dylan Walsh (Nip/Tuck, Revenge, Unforgettable) plays the federal agent in this two-parter. But look for him to be nothing like the Dana Delany, Jennifer Beals or Adrian Pasdar federal agents that came before him. This guy (at least so far) isn’t in any sort of contentious relationship with either Beckett or Castle.
  • Skyler Stone (Cousin Mike from FOX’s Raising Hope) also guest stars — he’s one of the bad guys.
  • Love how everyone is concerned for Castle and Alexis…including Gates.
  • The ending is quite unexpected.

We’re going to need the next week to go by quickly because we need to see the second part (“Hunt”) a.s.a.p. Castle “Target” airs tonight at 10/9c on ABC.

Sneak Peek (warning: highly spoilery)
