Season 1


Season 1, Episode 1: Flowers for Your Grave

9 March 2009
Murder mystery author Richard 'Rick' Castle publishes the book in which he kills off his bestseller series' hero, Derek Storm. On that very day, NYPD detective Kate Beckett questions him about two murders in the exact style of his novels, on a lawyer Fisk viz. social worker Alyson Tisdale. He's professionally flattered to have a copycat. Her boss, captain Roy Montgomery, accepts his help as case consultant and teams them up, the mayor being a fan puts him de facto in charge. More copy killing follows. The police simplistically arrest his fan Kyle Cabot, the first common link. Castle and his author friends decide he must keep investigating, on the assumption it's a motive cover-up, which he does brilliantly, as even Beckett must grudgingly admit.

Season 5, Episode 15: Target

18 February 2013
Saudi student Hasim Farouk, at Columbia like Alexis, is killed by a van crashing into him while he fired at it. The team soon works out the van was used to kidnap not only Egyptian tycoon Anwar El-Masri's daughter Sara, but also Alexis, whom she met at a lecture. FBI agent Harris's sole trace, obtained only because Becket 'turned away' from Castle slightly torturing the wounded van driver, runs dead. Meanwhile the girls attempt an escape, but discover the container they were held in now stands in Paris.

Season 5, Episode 16: Hunt

25 February 2013
Anwar El-Masri pays $3,000,000 ransom for the kidnapped girls, but only his daughter Sara is released. FBI Agent Harris must wait days for red tape before the FBI and NYPD can actively search for Alexis in Paris, being out of jurisdiction. So Castle goes alone and hires through a friend shady problem solver Jacque Henri and his tech sidekick 'la taupe'. They find where the girls were held and arrange anther exchange. Castle is in for shocking surprises, first betrayal, then who saves him, from whom, and how to get Alexis back.

Season 5, Episode 17: Scared to Death

18 March 2013
Castle is shaky after watching a DVD which predicts, in flashy amateur horror style, the exact time of death, for no apparent reason and probably by panic-caused cardiac arrest, of the murder victim, screaming in the phone, who received it. Her ex has a solid alibi and couldn't make sense of her panic about 'it'. Tracing the DVD's shipping leads to another copy recipient, killed at home similarly. Their only link is having been jurors on executed country serial killer Nigel Malloy's trial. The team heads for his home town, loved-ones and surviving jurors.
