Castle fans, are you ready for the epic conclusion of the Castle two-part episode? We know we are! Let’s kick things off with the synopsis for Castle Season 5, Episode 16: “Hunt,” shall we?

In the powerful conclusion of a two-episode story arc, Castle's efforts on the case suddenly put his own life in danger. Emmy and Golden Globe-winner James Brolin guest stars as Castle's dad.

If you thought that the first of the two-part story arc was intense, things have only just begun. Check of the promo clip for Season 5, Episode 16: “Hunt,” to see exactly what we’re talking about:
