Castle's recent string of rosier episodes is about to take a nosedive into much darker territory.
On Monday's episode, "In The Belly of the Beast"(10/9c, ABC), Beckett (Stana Katic) gets pulled into what is supposed to be a simple undercover operation. But naturally, things quickly get much more complicated — and dangerous.

"Beckett thinks she's pretending to be one person, but discovers that [the criminals] think that she's somebody else completely," creator Andrew W. Marlowe tells TVGuide.com. "She has to navigate those waters and figure out who she's supposed to be. And any misstep could get her killed."
Taking a turn for the dramatic is nothing new for Castle, which for many seasons has featured a high-stakes midseason two-parter. But because Season 6 opened with a two-part episode, Marlowe decided to take a different approach...
A&E certainly has an eye for talent, with the brooding Chloë Sevigny joining the electrifying Vera Farmiga in back-to-back Monday psycho- (or Psycho) dramas. Unfortunately, the former Big Love scene-stealer is not nearly as well served by the unpleasant formula dreariness of Those Who Kill (10/9c), an adaptation of a Danish series that takes a by-the-numbers approach to some truly ghastly serial-killer action.

On Monday's episode of Castle, Beckett and Castle took some big steps forward in their wedding planning — but not without a few speed bumps.
While investigating the death of an assistant to iconic fashion editor Matilda King (guest star Frances Fisher), Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) each made individual strides in making their impending nuptials a success...
Emotions have been running high lately on NBC's best Thursday comedies. Saying goodbye to beloved characters can have that effect. Last week, Community sent Abed's playmate Troy (Donald Glover) off to sail the world with LeVar Burton, but not before staging one last epic stunt that turned Greendale into Lava World. This week, the focus shifts to a more grounded yet fictional Indiana — where, incidentally, there is an actual Greendale (I grew up there) — as Pawnee prepares a going-away bash for Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe) and Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones) on Parks and Recreation that may not be as surreal as Community's but compensates with a reservoir of genuine emotion and character-rich moments.
