Castle Season 5 Episode 1 "After the Storm" Clips
"After four seasons of 'will they' or 'won't they,' Richard Castle and Kate Beckett finally gave in to their feelings for each other in the much anticipated Season 4 finale. Season 5 picks up on the proverbial morning after, with Castle and Beckett facing new questions -- Was this a one-time fling, or are they now a couple? But before they find the answers, they must take on the forces responsible for Beckett's mother's murder that now threaten Kate Beckett's life."
The first sneak peek from "After the Storm" (below) shows Ryan stopping by Beckett's, and when he asks Castle why he's there, Castle's response makes it obvious he's hiding something. Fortunately for them, Ryan's focused on the case. Beckett may have resigned, but Ryan warns her the guy who threw her off the roof is still out there. He needs her to look at a copy of the photo taken from the wedding album. While she doesn't recognize the man, Castle does as the man who's been protecting her. Castle has an ominous warning: "If we don't get to him before Maddox does, you'll never be safe again." Just when Beckett thought she could get out of the job, she's pulled back in in some way. Did you expect anything different?
The second Castle season 5 premiere clip (below) shows Esposito turning to a friend to tape into the DoD database and get him everything he can on Maddox. He'll keep coming if they don't stop him, and Esposito reassures him that he won't be caught. It's pretty hard to say no to someone who took a bullet for you, and Esposito presses the right buttons to get a yes to his favor request.
The third "After the Storm" sneak peek (below) shows Esposito with Castle and Beckett updating them on what he found out about Maddox, including his real name. He hands Beckett his extra gun as they approach a room, in which they find Maddox has opened a safe and put his gun down. Beckett tells him not to move and to hand over the file. Unsurprisingly, Maddox is not planning on listening to her. This can't end well.
