It takes a special crime show to include ninjas. “Castle” is that kind of show. In the Season 6 episode “The Way of the Ninja,” the black-clad Japanese warriors may even be behind a murder.
The case of the week deals with a murdered ballet dancer from Japan. She turns out to have had a secret life, and Castle and Beckett find evidence that a ninja was responsible for her death. Are the detectives next on the ninja’s hit list?
A routine search of a warehouse-like building drops the detectives right into a ninja den.
Castle (Nathan Fillion) doesn’t even realize there could be ninjas around.
There may even be a ninja right behind him.
He has figured it out now.
It looks like the ninja is going to win this round. You have to expect that when dealing with ninjas.
“The Way of the Ninja” airs Monday, March 17 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
