While investigating the death of an Irish mobster, Beckett and Castle uncover a local turf war that may be connected to both a late-night infomercial guru and an international drug smuggling operation. But the case turns agonizingly personal when evidence emerges that the killer they're chasing may have had a hand in Beckett's mother's murder. Written by
Did You Know?
When Beckett discovers the bags of drugs hidden in the bus-station locker, she cuts one open and tastes a bit of it to identify it as heroin. Although this is a very common thing for cops to do in TV shows and movies, it is strictly against actual police procedure. Aside from rules against law-enforcement officers ingesting any illegal drugs, there is also the chance that an unknown powder found during an investigation might be laced with an even more dangerous or lethal poison (anthrax, ricin, and cyanide all also have white-powder forms).

After Coonan takes the gun from the police officer you can hear the sound of the gun being loaded(Racking the slide). At no time was Coonan's other hand near the gun to do this. Later when Coonan is confronted by Captain Roy Montgomery you can hear the racking of the slide again. Coonan's other hand was holding onto Castle therefor could not have racked the slide. It should also be noted that if the gun was loaded the first time we heard the slide rack there would be no need to load the gun a second time. See more
It wasn't your fault, you know.
I overstepped. I came down here to say that I'm sorry, and that I'm through. I can't shadow you anymore. If it wasn't for me...
If it wasn't for you, I would have never found my mom's killer. And someday soon, I'm gonna find the sons of bitches who had Coonan kill her. And I'd like you around when I do.
