Castle - Secret Santa, reviewed

Castle season 5, episode 10: Secret Santa. In a Castle holiday episode, when a bearded, rotund man in a red Santa suit with an ID reading Kris Kringle falls from the sky in Central Park, Castle and Beckett are on the hunt to find the person who killed Santa. But everything isn’t holiday cheer, as they discover St. Nick may have been more naughty than nice. Meanwhile, Castle and Beckett prepare for their first Christmas together. 
The episode is one of the strongest of the season, and includes something for every fan of the series.

Captain Gates is becoming a real character, rather than just the curmudgeonly boss, Javier has some great scenes, including a fight with a group of Santa Claus' a la Arnold Schwarzenegger in "Jingle All the Way," and there is some key developments for both Alexis and Castle and Beckett's relationship.

Overall it's a solid A.
