We can't wait to hear about the rest of the cast. 


    "Hollander's Woods" was Directed by Paul Holahan and Written by Terri Edda Miller and Andrew W. Marlowe [MilMar]. This was MilMar's farewell episode and are leaving the show in the capable hands of new Showrunners and writers Terrence Paul Winter and Alexi Hawley [returning to Castle after writing/producing for "The Following".

    Did you watch last night's episode of #Castle, entitled "Sleeper"? Do you think it answered most of the questions about where Castle was when he was missing for two months or do you think it raised even more?  There was a lot of complex information given to us, the audience, in this episode. Perhaps a second rewatch might be in order!
