Death Gone Crazy is the twelfth episode of the fifth season of Castle.


When Beau Randolph, the founder of hit adult video franchise "College Girls Gone Crazy," is murdered, Castle and Beckett are confronted with a lengthy list of husbands, fathers and ex-college girls who all have a motive. So to find the killer, they must delve deep into the victim's life, where they find surprises at every turn. Also in the episode, Alexis starts a video blog, but Castle is not happy that personal and intimate details about her life are being made public.

Guest Cast


Esposito: $250 for a bra?
Lanie: Oh, but it’s OK to spend that on a pair of sneakers, right?
Esposito: A pair of sneakers is practical, OK? They can support your, um…
Castle: Eject.
Esposito: Ok.
Castle: We're not here about your dancers, Mr. Parrino. Are we?
Beckett: Right. No, we're here about Beau Randolph.
Ryan: Well, um... I never thought I'd say this after graduating the sixth grade, but our bra research is in.
Castle: Maybe more than just a few questions
Beckett: Think he'll be able to accept his grandchild?
Castle: Absolutely.
Beckett: What makes you so sure?
Castle: Because a father would do anything for his daughter.
Alexis: You think i'm one of those girls who flash for take of tequila.

  • This was Beau Randolph's second appearance, he previously appeared in the season 4 episode "Head Case".
  • In this episode, Castle expresses concern about Alexis doing her own personal vlog (her video blog) and revealing personal information, warning her of the potential dangers it may bring. Sadly, this point proves true several episodes later in "Target".
  • Usually, Castle and Alexis's disagreements are resolved within one episode. This is the one time when this episode's issue is revisited in later episodes of "Target" and "Hunt".
  • The victim in this episode, Beau Randolph, has a lot in common with the victim of the season 2 episode Food to Die For, Balthazar Wolf. They were orphans, bad boys (for different reasons), and they both changed their ways when they found out they were going to be fathers.
