** In season 7, the revelation that Castle is friends with a mob boss meant he could no longer work at the precinct with Beckett, Espitio, and Ryan. So he got a PI license, working cases on his own without Beckett. Often the two were competing against each other to solve the case instead of together. Soon, however, [[StatusQuoIsGod status quo]] was restored.

* VillainSue: 3XK/[[spoiler: Jerry Tyson.]] In his first appearance, he begins killing random women, while his cellmate gives the police help on how to capture him in exchange for early release and protective custody. [[spoiler: It turns out that the cellmate is the ''real'' 3XK, having paid for heart surgery for the suspect's dying brother in order to get him to take the fall. After being outed by Castle, he proceeds to take out both Castle and Ryan, tying them up and taking Ryan's gun, making him the first criminal in the show to escape death/capture.]]
** Then, in 3XK's second appearance, he [[spoiler: frames Castle for murder by hiring a duplicate to appear on tape and planting fingerprints at the crime scene and data on his computer linking him to the crime scene and the victim, in order to get Castle arrested and thrown in prison where his hired goons will kill him.]] When Castle's innocence is proven, he attempts to kill him and Beckett, only for Castle to shoot him off the bridge, leading to his death... [[NeverFoundTheBody maybe.]]
** In Season 6, it seems like he's dead for good; however, duplicates of Esposito and Lanie (done through plastic surgery) are revealed to have [[spoiler: stolen all the collected information on Tyson's previous killings, preventing anyone from linking future crimes committed to him. This wasn't his doing, however, but that of his girlfriend, a plastic surgeon.]]
** Finally, in the first half of a two part episode in Season 7, he's captured fairly quickly, the rest of the episode devoted to proving whether or not 3XK is still alive, and, if he is, that the man they have captured is really 3XK or someone made to look like him, a feat that seems impossible due to the loss of his case files and DNA in the previous season. [[spoiler: In the end, Castle and Beckett manage to find a baby tooth belonging to Jerry Tyson, and attempt to match the DNA... only to prove that they are, in fact, not the same person. "Jerry Tyson" and his plastic surgeon girlfriend walk hand in hand out of the precinct while Beckett is simultaneously kidnapped, providing them with the perfect alibi for that crime as well.]] By the end of the second part, [[spoiler: Tyson's been sniped by Espo after Castle beats him at his own game, and his girlfriend Dr. Nieman is gutted offscreen by Beckett. Game over.]]



** Castle in "47 Seconds". [[spoiler:He is about to tell Beckett for real that he loves her, but he gets interrupted by Esposito before he can do it, so he decides to do it later. However, when Beckett is interrogating a suspect, he goes to the adjoining room to hear the interrogation, and discovers that Beckett actually remembers everything that happened after being shot. He is, naturally, left broken at the fact that Beckett decided to deceive him, and the rest of the episode, when he is not helping with the case, he acts passive-aggresively towards Beckett.]]

* CompleteMonster: [[PsychoPsychologist Dr. Van Holtzman]] from season 7's finale "[[Recap/CastleS7E23HollandersWoods Hollander's Woods]]" is a [[MalevolentMaskedMen masked]] SerialKiller who has been active for over thirty years. With at least nine victims to his name, Holtzman abducts young woman whom he believes won't be missed, carves crosses into their faces, then [[SlashedThroat cuts their throats]]. When an eleven-year-old [[TheHero Richard Castle]] comes across Holtzman disposing the body of one of his victims, Holtzman [[WouldHurtAChild threatened to kill him]] if he told anyone what he saw, only sparing him to [[PragmaticVillainy avoid drawing attention to his other crimes]]. Years later, when the adult Castle and Detective Kate Beckett investigate another of Holtzman's murders, Holtzman attempts to {{frame|Up}} one of his mentally ill patients for the killings. While searching the barnhouse where Holtzman murdered his victims, Castle discovers a scrapbook [[CreepySouvenir filled with pictures of Holtzman's victims]]. When Holtzman arrives, he expresses regret for not having killed Castle as a child, then promises to kill both Castle and Beckett before attacking Castle and trying to slowly cut his throat. Taking {{pride}} in his crimes and considering his mask to be his real face, Holtzman is a vicious killer who left an impact on Castle for his entire life, and [[KnightOfCerebus stands out]] in a normally lighthearted series.

** Detective Demming upped the ante by [[spoiler: kissing Beckett in "Overkill",]] thus securing his status as arch nemesis of all Castle/Beckett shippers. [[Series/TheColbertReport "DEMMIIIIIIIIIIING!" * shakes fist* ]]
** As of the end of Season Two [[spoiler: Beckett broke up with Demming... just in time for Castle and his ex-wife Gina to start hooking up again. Gina's got her work cut out for her, stepping into Demming's shoes.]]
** Towards the end of "Punked," Beckett appears with a new beau named Josh. The fan hate for this particular character goes UpToEleven as of "Countdown." It came to a head in "Rise", when [[spoiler:Josh accused Castle of getting her shot. Cut to three months later, and she's broken up with ''him,'' too.]]
** Inverted to some degree with "The Limey", however, where both Castle and Beckett seem to get (presumably) temporary new LoveInterests in flight attendent Jacinda and British cop Colin... except most of the fan ire around the episodes seems to be directed primarily at Castle and Beckett themselves, mainly for ''once again'' refusing to just [[CannotSpitItOut have a sensible, adult conversation about their issues and relationship]] and instead dicking about around the subject with other people.

** In a rare case of this trope being taken literally, this is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] occasionally by Castle and Alexis. In several episodes ("A Chill Goes Through Her Veins" and "A Deadly Affair", for example), facing logical puzzles or romantic dilemmas, they open the refrigerator and hang mournfully on the door, staring inside. Castle at one point comments, "What is it about the refrigerator? Is it the cold? The light? Or some combination of the two?"

** The ship is now dead as a doornail: Stana Katic married her boyfriend Kris Brkljac in April 2015, and ABC announced in April 2016 she would be leaving the show after Season 8. This seems to confirm a lot of behind-the-scenes rumors that Katic & Fillion were not getting along with each other and have not been for at least several seasons, possibly going as far back as Season 4.
