Episode Summary


Beckett conducts a covert investigation related to her mother's murder but things go terribly wrong when the subject under surveillance is killed. Castle and Beckett become the object of a manhunt when evidence connects Beckett to the victim.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Veritas

    A great moment with Beckett finally bringing down the man responsible for her mother's death. This episode had some weak spots, but a great payoff in the short-term and for the long-term health of Beckett's character.
  • Stana


    " I am waiting for her to be movie. Please pick her Daniel Craig or Bond movie producers" - watch the end of Quantum of Solace. :)

  • Missed it

    I've watched the reruns a gazillion times each but missed this one. Glad to see she finally got her mother's killer based on the reviews below. And I liked Montgomery so it's nice they had her thinking of him.
  • A sideline

    Just a little sideline. After 20 minutes in the show I was gripped by the unfolding events in a way, that I hardly ever had experienced in the last 6 years. I regularly look at the older shows of season 1, 2 and 3. The lightheartness and the flirty banter of the past has gone. Now we see an emotional ground and almost touchable feeling between the actors (but let us be frank, as Kate once said to Castle"that girl is an actress, it is her job to cry!").

    But in retrospect I realise, that it was not only the superb acting of all the members of the cast, but also the brillance of the director of this episode, alongside the props and music, that had me gripped!!!moreless
  • Oh My God! She really did it!

    Beckett finally got Bracken! I couldn't believe it. I was so happy to see that look in his face when she busted him in front of the media, the way he stared at her with disbelief. That was awesome!

    I don't care if she wasn't really cleared of the murder with the tape, I only care that she got the bastard and beat him in his own game. I'm just waiting for retaliation because there will be; he won't let this pass so easily.

    I got so scared when that guy broke that bottle on her head (was it a bottle?), I thought she was gonna pass out in the room with the two DB's and get arrested (again) for murder. Perfect timing Castle.

    I wanted to see Montgomery again, thank you for that ABC. And thank God she didn't dye her her blonde.moreless
