Pool hustler William Fairwick is found at home, fatally stabbed with a broken cue, which seems to fit threats from at least one victim. It turns out he actually saved young tycoon Tom Talmadge, who was beaten in hospital but refused to file a complaint because his suspect is an invisible man, he only explanation which fits the security camera footage of Fairwick's own murder. Castle and Becket are themselves attacked by an invisible enemy, yet try resuming their sex-life and link the case to a top-secret government facility, where Will actually was key researcher.

Did You Know?


In the course of their investigation, Castle and Beckett learn that the victim claimed to have made a deal with the devil at the crossroads for his talent as a pool player. This is a loose reference to the urban legend that blues guitarist Robert Johnson sold his soul in exchange for his skills as a musician. See more »

C'mon Castle; you can do better than this.

Invisible suits? Really? Is this what it's come to? I thought it was bad enough to start out the season with the old soap-opera "lost his memory" twist (wonder what will happen to that?) ... but sci-fi?

This is NOT why I watch this show. I've given it a 5 because the banter is still quite entertaining, and I still think the cast is great; but the episode as a whole sucked. If this is the best that season 7 can come up with, maybe it's better that there isn't a #8.

It happens to the best of 'em ... and Castle has been at the top for quite a while.

Put up or shut up ABC (and writers), but please don't give us dross.
