Diane recognized a slew of familiar faces on Castle.  Armin Shimerman played Benjamin, the man who sold TV replicas. He was Principal Synder on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Quark on Deep Space Nine. Ed Quinn was Gabriel Winters, the actor who played Captain of Nebula-9. He was Nathan Stark on Eureka. Erin Way was the best friend of the victim. She’s Kat on Alphas and I remember her as the receptionist Wendy Chapin-Lomeister on the cancelled-too-soon Detroit 1-8-7. Christina Moore was Stephanie Fyre, the actress who played Lt. Chloe. She was Candy the nurse on Hawthorne and Naomi’s mother Tracy on 90210.

Afton Williamson is Makena, Juliette’s publicist on Nashville. She was Helen Walker last season on Homeland.

Angella recognized Abraham Benrubi, Jerry on ER and Ben on Men in Trees, as one of the suspects on Bones.

Anika Noni Rose was Joan’s former friend and colleague on Elementary. Last season she was Sam’s sister Corrine on Private Practice and Peter’s nemesis Wendy Scott-Carr on The Good Wife.  Rose will be back on The Good Wife later this season.

Here’s a fun why does she look familiar face: Zoe Perry played Katy, Cristina’s patient who underwent risky heart surgery on Grey’s Anatomy.  She’s the daughter of Laurie Metcalf (Roseanne) and Jeff Perry, who currently plays Cyrus on Scandal and was Meredith’s dad Thatcher Grey on Grey’s Anatomy.
