    After watching episode 3 and Beckett asking Castle how he started to write crime novels, I can't stop thinking that maybe something tragic happened to Castle when he was young. There's no mention of his father - or maybe I missed it - but was murdered? Or maybe he just witnessed a murder?

    I don't think you have to experience a trajedy to be a good writer. I would like to think Castle just has a well developed imagination. Another lead character with a mysteriously tragic background might be a little too much drama for one show. Just my opinion, of course.

    It was mentioned last season that Martha does not know who Castle's father is. I would love to have this addressed at some point, and maybe find and meet the missing dad.
