Added DiffLines:

** "Love Me Dead" gave us Norman Jessup, the ex-con who wanted to be a locksmith, and considered himself a wordsmith. Castle even takes a liking to him, refusing to press charges for Jessup hitting him earlier in the episode (to be fair, Jessup apologized almost immediately, as Castle wasn't his target) because "He's a wordsmith."

** [=LokSat=], real name [[spoiler:Mason Wood]], is the BigBad of the eighth and final season, as well as the GreaterScopeVillain of the whole series. The head of the Greatest Detective Society and a corrupt government attorney, it is revealed in the two-part season premiere "[[{{Recap/CastleS8E1XY}} XY]]"/"[[{{Recap/CastleS8E2XX}} XX]]" that he was Senator William Bracken's silent partner, providing him with the highly-trained assassins he used, taking part in covering up their crimes. When Beckett's former team from the Attorney General's office begins looking into finding him, he has four of them killed in a car accident and the fifth one stabbed in a nightclub, later on sending assassins after both Beckett and AG analyst Vikram Singh. When [[YouHaveFailedMe Bracken is questioned]] by Beckett and later by Castle, [=LokSat=] [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness has him brutally murdered in prison]]. He also [[FrameUp frames]] AG Allison Hyde as a patsy, has her killed, and makes it look like a suicide to close the investigation. He assists Bracken and Vulcan Simmons in their drug operation, keeping it going even after they're dead. When Beckett is seemingly able to persuade Public Defender Caleb Brown--whom [=LokSat=] forced to work for him--to turn on [=LokSat=] in the series finale "[[{{Recap/CastleS8E22Crossfire}} Crossfire]]", [=LokSat=] has [[TheDragon Mr. Flynn]] gas and brutally burn an unknown man alive in order to fake Caleb's death, only [[PragmaticVillainy sparing him because he's still useful]]. He manipulates and plans to kill Castle's stepmother Rita for information. When he has Flynn abduct Castle and subject him to an extremely potent truth serum, he personally asks one-by-one who else knows about the investigatio, coldly stating his intention to have them all eliminated. He later attempts to ambush Beckett and tries to throw her into an incinerator. Representing the darkest elements of the series, [=LokSat=] is notable as the most dangerous threat the characters have ever faced.

** "The Late Shaft" averts this by salting the suspects with enough B and C-list celebrities for a VH1 reality show. Tom Bergeron played the big late-night talk show host [[spoiler:victim]]; Fred Willard played his feisty sidekick, Beth Broderick played his first wife, Bill Bellamy played his heir apparent, Dan Cortese played the network president, Kelly Carlson played another guest [[spoiler:who hooks up with Castle]], and even [[Series/ThirdRockFromTheSun French Stewart]] [[PlayingAgainstType played a skeevy guy who did business with Bergeron]]. [[spoiler:Fred Willard dood it.]]
