But here's the good news: it will involve ninjas!!!
Maybe. Possibly. According to Rick, at least.
Indeed, based on the following promo and the following set of photos, it looks like one of Rick's crazy theories will soon come to life - but if Beckett doesn't see these costumed warriors for herself, will she believe him?
When a Japanese ballet dancer is murdered on the March 18th episode, the investigation leads Castle and Beckett to what appear to be ninjas. Will Rick be thrilled, terrified or both? And how long will it take for this plot twist to end up in one of his books?
