The thrilling conclusion of Castle’s two-part Season 8 premiere has so many of us talking, sharing theories, and debating plot points. Written by show-runners Alexi Hawley and Terence Paul Winter and directed by Paul Holahan, “XX” left us on the edge of our seat and delivered quite the emotional wallop at the very end. We know there is much to be said about this episode and we hope you join us tonight on STR to share your thoughts!
