Sneak Peek: Castle Is Caught in a Parent Trap!

Chasing murderous bad guys will seem like a walk in Central Park when Castle invites Rick and his mother Martha to break bread with Kate and her dad Jim — and we’ve got a pair of video sneak peeks.

In this Monday’s episode of the ABC series, it’s time to “meet the parents” — or more accurately have the ‘rents spend quality time with each other for the first time since their kids coupled up. But as you can see in the first clip below, you may as well ask oil and water to blend together easily.

In the second video, Rick and Kate (thankfully) have been pulled away from the dinner table by the demands of work — though residual tension nonetheless travels with them as they try to extricate themselves and a mob rat (played by Lost/Mad Men alum Patrick Fischler) from a sticky situation. Bonus: MacGyver reference!
