Storyline

Bike messenger Caleb Shimansky is killed by a masked man in a stolen black sedan. Caleb carried only one package, for Sally Niedermeyer, whose name the courier firm had miswritten as terrorist Shakir Nidal Mattar's. It was a message from her nephew Brian Thompson, from jail, where he's murdered hours later. It proved he, convicted due to present captain Roy Montgomery, confessed innocently to have his son's medical bills paid. Castle's connections help investigating the original murder of Olivia, which soon points to the extremely wealthy, politically influential Wellesley family, but which one and why?

Trivia

Castle makes a crack about the name "Stanley" not being a unisex name. In fact, President Barack Obama's mother was named Stanley, after the Bette Davis character in the movie In This Our Life (who was also female). See more »

Goofs

In the opening, after the car hits the cyclist, and the driver jumps out of the car, the overhead shot shows the bicycle under the front bumper, seat near the driver's front wheel. After the driver gets back in the car and drives away, the bicycle is much further away from the car, facing a different direction, and laying on its other side. See more »

Quotes

Captain Roy Montgomery: Do we know what was in the package?
NYPD Detective Kate Beckett: The courier company's looking into it right now. Whatever it was, somebody thought that it was worth killing for.
Richard Castle: Off the top of my head, I'm gonna go with nuclear launch codes, Dick Cheney's soul on its way to the devil...
