Viewers tuned in to Castle Season 7 Episode 1 for the answer to one very important question:
WHERE IS RICK CASTLE?
Indeed, the mystery writer became the mystery on an intense opening hour, as Kate Beckett searched frantically for her missing fiance.
We start off where we left off in May, with Kate arriving on the accident scene and seeing that Castle has been dragged away. She heads to a junkyard with Ryan and Espo because that’s where Rick’s phone is pinging.
And although they get nothing out of the worker there, we do see just how crazy and intense Beckett is over Rick's disappearance.
Kate (told to keep her cool by Espo and Gates) then confers with FBI agent Connors, who figures the crime had to be personal because… why else snatch up Rick on his wedding day?
