In this episode of "Castle" the twentieth-century Irish poet, Patrick Kavanagh is referenced by the show's writers. Using the character names of "Sam Kavanagh" and "Detective Raglan", the writers made reference to the poet's 1946 composition, "On Raglan Road". Also of note is the fact that this poem was later set to music by the the Dubliners, (an Irish band), and has since been covered by many Irish and international musicians. See more »


Richard Castle: There's got to be an explanation. A story that makes everything make sense.
Kate Beckett: Okay, Castle. What's our Jane Doe's story?
Richard Castle: Well, I don't know how it starts, but I know how it ends. Frozen at a construction site. So, flying monkeys aside, what's the first question? How did she get there?
Kevin Ryan: Considering she was frozen solid, she had to have been kept pretty close.

Best Episode Thus Far
10 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was so good! The crime storyline was complex and well thought out. And the personal revelations were long overdue! The show starts with a woman being found frozen. She has a complicated family life and past, and it all comes out in the end, and not exactly the way you expect. Beckett and Castle have become more civil toward each other, which makes for a more interesting dynamic, rather than the predictable opposites attract/love-hate relationship. We learn more about Beckett and her past. She willingly shares details with Castle, which is a nice change of pace, and it shows that she's beginning to trust him. It is also the first time she sees Castle's home life. And as always there are great loving scenes between Alexis and Castle - which pretty much solidifies the love I have for this character. They share some great moments. Watch this episode!
