The killers in Castle were as creative—and gruesome—as ever in Season 4. We found these 7 body finds to be most shocking of all.
7. "Head Case"
This time the surprise was the body they didn't find. What killer lets the victim's body drain out before running off with the corpse?!
6. "Till Death Do Us Part"
Why are Beckett and Lainie looking at the body in disgust? And why was Castle's reaction instead to high five the corpse?
It's because after this naked man fell several stories to his death, the team discovered that he had been making love. Also, that just moments before that, he had been making love to a different woman.
5. "Kick the Ballistics"
This was a very telling crime scene. A college student was found shot to death and encased in cement with a crucifix clutched in her hand. She knew she was going to die. The most shocking part, though, was that Detective Ryan's gun was the murder weapon.
4. "Once Upon a Crime"
Our theories started going the way of Castle after Little Red Riding Hood was found dead with non-human claw marks across her face... in the woods.
It was eerie enough to find a ghost wrangler murdered in a haunted mansion. The fact that the blood splatter from his slit neck was unobstructed by the killer brought things to a whole new level of scary.
2. "Undead Again"
Mauled flesh and 19th century garments? Castle was on cloud nine with this one. Well, probably until he found himself the center of attention in a mob of zombies.
1. "Heroes & Villains"
This person was cut in half. Cut in half!! By a man dressed as a super hero, no less.
Out of all the bodies found in Season 4, if it were us crossing them, this is the one that would have shocked us the most.
