STR #221 09/22/15 S8e01 “XY” Recap

Season 8 got off to an exciting start with last night’s season premiere entitled “XY.” This episode was written by the new show-running team of Alexi Hawley and Terence Paul Winter and directed by fan favorite Rob Bowman. We hope you join us tonight to share your thoughts about part 1 of the two-part season 8 premiere of Castle!

1. After a long summer of speculation and conversation, we finally got to meet new series regular Toks Olagundoye’s character Hayley Shipton. What was your first impression of her? Are you glad to have a new character? Did you enjoy what she brought to last night’s episode?

2. Though it’s still largely unclear what’s going on with Beckett, we know that Bracken is involved somehow? Are you glad the Bracken storyline is being revisited? Do you have any idea what might be going on here?

3. What did you think of the episode as a whole? Did it live up to your expectations (if you had any)? Were you taken by surprise in any way? Do you have any spoiler-free predictions for next week’s episode, “XX?”
