Season 3 sees the return of beat partners Ben Chartier (Jared Keeso), and Nick Barron (Adrian Holmes), as they navigate the blurred-lines between Montréal politics and organized crime, while the squad searches for redemption and begins to heal from Season 2’s traumatic events including a horrific school shooting, and the shocking revelation that their beloved sergeant was a pedophile.

BLUE BLOODS is a drama about a multi-generational family of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement.
Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is a highly skilled forensic anthropologist who works at the Jeffersonian Institute in Washington, DC, and writes novels as a sideline. When the standard methods of identifying a body are useless - when the remains are so badly decomposed, burned or destroyed that CSI gives up - law enforcement calls in Brennan for her uncanny ability to read clues left behind in the victim's bones.
Most law enforcement can't handle Brennan's intelligence, her drive for the truth, or the way she flings herself headlong into every investigation. Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) of the FBI's Homicide Investigations Unit is the exception. A former Army sniper, Booth mistrusts science and scientists - the "squints," as he calls them, who pore over the physical evidence of a crime. But even he cannot deny that the combination of his people-smarts and Brennan's scientific acumen makes them a formidable team.
Aside from Booth, Brennan is most comfortable with her equally brilliant colleagues at the Jeffersonian's Medico-Legal Lab. Angela Montenegro (Michaela Conlin), an artist who specializes in reconstructing facial features and crime scenes, is Brennan's earthy and bawdy best friend; neophyte forensic anthropologist Dr. Zack Addy (Eric Millegan), who has a genius IQ, is Brennan's socially awkward associate; "the bug guy," conspiracy theorist Dr. Jack Hodgins (TJ Thyne), is an expert on insects, spores and minerals; and Dr. Dr. Camille (Cam) Saroyan (Tamara Taylor), the street-smart and centered coroner, must wrangle all the geniuses under her purview.
When viewers first met Richard Castle -- a famous mystery novelist and divorced father raising his teenage daughter, while being kept grounded by his Broadway diva mother -- he was creatively blocked. But when the NYPD questioned him in connection with a series of murders staged to imitate crime scenes from his books, Castle found inspiration in NYPD Detective Kate Beckett, a bright and aggressive homicide detective with a fascination for odd and offbeat cases stemming from the years-old unsolved murder of her own mother. Though they instantly clashed, sparks of another sort began to fly, leading both to danger and a hint of romance as Castle stepped in to help find the copycat killer. Once that initial case was solved, Castle and Beckett continued to investigate strange homicides in New York, combining Castle's writer intuition and Beckett's creative detective work.
