Beloveds, we miss our favorite shows. Shows we nurtured and coveted, only to learn of their cancellation after many Seasons. Here, we catch up with Castle stars and life after the final episode of Castle aired.


Nathan Fillion went on to pop up randomly with cameos on Rick and Morty, Brooklyn Nine Nine, the Santa Clarita Diet, Modern Family, and American Housewife, and is currently set to headline the cop-themed dramedy The Rookie, playing John Nolan, the oldest rookie in the LAPD; and which reunites Fillion with onetime Castle showrunner/E.P. Alexi Hawley.

Surrounded by rookies twenty years his junior, Nolan must navigate the dangerous, humorous and unpredictable world of a “young” cop, determined to make his second shot at life count.


Stana Katic’s thriller Absentia was a 10-episode thriller released last Fall on Amazon in the United States. Absentia centers on Emily Byrne (played by Katic), an FBI agent who, while hunting one of Boston’s most notorious serial killers, disappears without a trace and is declared dead.

Six years later, Emily is found in a cabin in the woods, barely alive and with no memory of the years she was missing. Returning home to learn her husband (Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce‘s Patrick Heusinger) has remarried and her son (Patrick McCauley) is being raised by another woman (Downton Abbey‘s Cara Theobold), she soon finds herself implicated in a new series of murders.

Blindspot Season 3 Ep22 – SEASON FINALE

In Memory

Jane and Weller go on a hunt for Roman back to where it all started. Let’s recap.

Reade and Zapata wake up at his place on the day Zapata has her CIA briefing after her alleged dismissal. Zapata tells him they can’t be together as it’s not the right time for them.

Roman has finally arrived in South Africa – home. The FBI track down Crawford’s location and swarm in just as the car is leaving for the airport. They expected to find Crawford in the car but found Blake instead. In the interrogation room, Blake lawyers up and then goes against legal advice and makes a deal; she gives them information in exchange for a guarantee that Crawford will be brought in alive and allowed to clear his name.

The FBI trace Crawford to South Africa. Roman lures him to a Hotel and then takes him down, bound to a chair, to reveal his true identity. Crawford was behind the orphanage Roman and Jane were raised in, and where they were trained, tortured, and beaten, to become child soldiers. The psychological damage wasn’t part of the plan.

Crawford apologises, but then asks whether Roman loved Blake for real, and suggests he find her, while Crawford takes his gun from him as he is defiant he won’t spend the rest of his life in prison for his crimes.

When the FBI turn up at the orphanage it’s Jane who finds Crawford and shoots him. His relief is visible, and she asks why. Crawford had a South African Security Officer working for him, and he follows the FBI team and then shoots Kurt in the gut, and he goes down. The South Africa hospital patches him up. Jane watches as Roman drives away.

Roman phones Blake and is surprised to hear she’s also in South Africa, and they meet on a hillside overlooking Cape Town. Roman’s about to tell her everything but then she admits that she knows the truth, and shoots him in the gut and drives away.

With Crawford dead and Roman missing, Jane heads to the hillside where they played as children and finds Roman slumped against a tree, bleeding to death. He gives her a drive and apologises for everything, and then the Team head back to the office.

Patterson and Richdotcom unlock the drive after Jane remembers the encryption key via a flashback, and they unlock the tattoos and codes behind some of them, but there are new tattoo clues as well.

Jane admits to Kurt that she thinks she’s pregnant as she keeps collapsing, but when she collapses in front of him and is rushed to hospital, she is unconscious.

When she comes around, she has no idea what’s going on, and makes a phone call asking for help, but says her name is Remi. After confirming she’s still undercover at the FBI, she asks to meet with Oscar or Roman or Shepherd, then hangs up.

We see a flashback of Remi and Shephard plotting to take down the FBI from the inside. Turns out Jane has zip poisoning, which is making her collapse and her brain malfunction. Roman was looking for a cure, and the drive has most of the research he was doing.

Kurt ends up in hospital himself later, as the gunshot wound had serious complications the Cape Town hospital missed.

Blake is on her private jet on her way back to resume her life, with a companion on board planning to make their next move – it’s Zapata.

All of Me

It’s the day of Jo and Alex’s wedding, but things don’t go as planned. Let’s recap.

April sent the incorrect link to the wedding venue to the guests, so they arrived at the wrong place, a church where a couple were about to get married.

While the group were attempting to leave quietly, the Mother of the Bride collapsed just as Bailey and Ben were about to leave, so Bailey jumped in to assist, while Ben got the paramedics. The woman had an aortic issue so back at Grey Sloan, Bailey had nobody to scrub in with her – Maggie was at the wedding, and the on call surgeon was already in an operating theatre.

Teddy turned up at the hospital – Bailey persuaded her to scrub in. Mid op, Teddy asked  Bailey for a job. Perfect timing, Bailey wants to take a sabbatical now the checks for her trailblazer prototype are coming in.

Mer offered Jo an Attending position to make sure Alex stayed close. Mer admitted she was going to miss him.

Jo turned down the position as Mass General in Boston offered her a Fellowship, and Richard agreed it would put her career on a higher trajectory.

Back at Jo and Alex’s wedding venue its a shambles, with late arrivals of guests and the officiant got lost and was severely delayed. Out of boredom, Jo and Alex crept off to a shed to make out, stumbling upon the remains of someone locked in there and left to die. Alex realised they were locked in, and it was only a matter of time before Mer and Andrew took a stroll and he kissed her, misreading her intentions. They happened to pass by and heard Jolexs‘ cries for help.

Arizona admitted to April that now she and Callie are both single her feelings for her have intensified. Matthew and Jackson had an awkward moment but agreed to be civil to each other, for April’s sake.

The wedding planner accidentally ate shrimp and collapsed, went into anaphalctic shock, and Jackson and April had to save her by performing an emergency tracheotomy.

The Mother of the Bride was visited by her daughter and son in law to be, and Bailey arranged for the Chapel to be used for the ceremony so the Mother could watch on a laptop.

Teddy disclosed to the Mother that she’s pregnant.

Matthew proposed and April said yes.

Meredith became ordained so she could officiate Jo and Alex’s wedding on the ferry back to Seattle, and the wedding officiant finally arrived but everyone had already left except Jackson and Arizona, and April and Matthew, so April and Matthew got married while Jackson and Arizona watched.
