Guess who’s baaaaaack?! Jerry Tyson a.k.a. the 3XK serial killer, that’s who.
Thanks to EW, we learned back in January that Michael Mosley is set to return as famed serial killer 3XK in their annual two-parter episode. Castle and Beckett come face to face with their nemesis, Dr. Kelly Nieman, which then lead them to uncover connections to Tyson in tonight’s episode titled “Resurrection.”
For those that can’t remember, Tyson, who was known for killing women (three at a time) and all blondes, because of his hatred for his mother, first appeared in the series’ third season by tricking Castle and Beckett into letting him out of jail. He returns in season five by framing Castle for murder but not before having him help him fake his own death. Finally in season 6, Beckett and Castle solve a murder of victims that resemble Lanie and Esposito. But like a lot. Their deaths helped destroy all the evidence the NYPD previously had on the 3XK killer.
The episode in season 6 titled “Disciple” also introduced Beckett and Castle to Dr. Kelly Nieman, the 3XK wannabe, played by Annie Wersching.
In tonight’s episode, they go up against said doctor yet again! Dun-dun-dunnnn!
