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.

Well, they just optioned Asteroids, the video game, so my guess is yes. But Ryan Reynolds is playing the wee triangle and he's good.
