Oh, it's a good week to be a Nathan Fillion fan. First there's major sci-fi fun to be had on this week's Castle, with a murder investigation at a Comic-Con-esque convention, and then the Science Channel celebrates Firefly's 10th anniversary with a marathon and a special called Browncoasts Unite.

Also this week, we'll get more details of the blackout on Revolution, Oliver gets arrested for murder on Arrow, Sam and Dean face an avenging ghost on Supernatural, American Horror Story: Asylum kicks off part one of a two-parter about secrets, Deals From the Darkside explores a collector who purchases the world's darkest collectibles, Wil Wheaton and LeVar Burton guest-star on The Big Bang Theory, Connor takes hostages on The Vampire Diaries, the crew of the Colorado are attacked on Last Resort, a photo is published of Vincent on Beauty & The Beast, Reese and Zoe go undercover in the suburbs on Person of Interest, Jason Gedrick guest-stars on Grimm, Walter searches for something that will aid in their battle against the Observers on Fringe, Claudia Black returns on Haven's two-parter. Ghosts join an electrical storm on Syfy's Ghost Storm, Ruby may have killed someone during the full moon on Once Upon a Time, and the group reels from their losses on The Walking Dead.

Here's what we have to look forward to this week on sci-fi, fantasy and paranormal TV.

Monday, Nov. 5

Castle (ABC) 10:01 p.m. - "The Final Frontier"

Jonathan Frakes alert! Castle has embraced its inner geek before with a nod to star Nathan Fillion's Firefly roots, but this episode takes things to a whole new level. When a murder occurs at a sci-fi convention, Castle and Beckett's investigation takes them deep into the world of sci-fi nerddom. Next Gen's Jonathan Frakes directs and has a cameo, and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's Armin Shimerman and Eureka's Ed Quinn guest-star. Beyond that we'll get to see Beckett's fangirl side come out and a lot of insider Star Trek and Firefly jokes.

Here's a sneak peek:
