Storyline

Insurance agent John Allen was strangled and thrown off a roof into a tree. Masked men hold Castle and the coroner at gun-point to steal the corpse on the way to the morgue, then dump it after butchering the inside, probably retrieving drugs. The widow refused to consider infidelity and pointed at former colleague Max Haverstock but it turns out both were fired eight months before and only Max got another legal job. Meanwhile only the mayor and the chief stand between Castle and jealous Becket severing his privileged ties with the NYPD after this 'last case', so he takes risks to 'redeem' himself after the trail leads to Chinatown poker and Russian mobsters. Written by KGF Vissers etc

Trivia

When Castle's mother asks if Hollywood has lost its originality, Castle mentions Asteroids being optioned as a movie but that Ryan Reynolds is slated to play the triangle, and that he is good. In the early 2000s Nathan Fillion was in a TV show with Ryan Reynolds called 2 Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place. See more »

Goofs

After taking a call, Det. Ryan states, "our perps were wearing gloves". However, in the earlier scene, the gunman who enters the morgue vehicle is clearly not wearing gloves and opens the door bare handed. See more »

Castle 'Deep in Death' Review
23 September 2009 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

What's Castle without a headline photo-shoot, a couple of cop models at station center, a drug related body snatching, a meeting with a Russian mobster and a fall out with Kate Beckett.

Halfway through Castle's snarly comments, Kate's edgy comebacks, 'The Mentalist's' Patrick Jane and Teressa Lisbon came to mind. They have that 'annoying partner that gives good insight' thing going on. The only difference between them, is that Beckett still has a problem accepting Castle as part of the team. More so now he has dreaded up a personal element of her past.

I don't blame her, it was personal and she trusted Castle to keep it that way. Castle needed to learn boundaries, which was pretty difficult for him being a writer. He did have guts going to Beckett with that information, it could have blown up in his face, he barely got away with just a bruise. It only took his well grown daughter to teach him how to earn forgiveness. That just goes to show that Castle would have another day to partner up with Beckett, probably even pull the rest of her hair out personally.

Castle also had guts gambling with a Russian mobster. That was careless of the crew to send him in there, couldn't they have gotten someone trained, suppose Beckett wasn't quick enough to pull that switcheroo 'PS I can also be a Russian Showgirl' trick. Castle was well within inches from being killed, maybe it was Beckett's plan all along.

For the season premiere, it was satisfactory. We still have many doubts about Beckett's closure towards her mother's case and sometimes Castle dives in over his head. He sure has dodged a load some of bullets in his lifetime and that apology seemed sincere enough, but I doubt he would back off on the case Beckett said was closed. It's like saying 'Don't go there' and you still go, the interest is still there and he has a good enough lead.

I'm sure another photo-shoot would be out of the question for Castle, especially in the station. The most intriguing scene for this episode was when the moving van suddenly got hauled over by a party of body snatching crooks who just wanted their fix harvested in organs. The dead body being transported by the cops didn't even stop them, but that is what that profession does for you, clouds your judgment.
