Trivia

Castle's line "Remember my safe word is apples" is a throwback to Castle: Flowers for Your Grave (2009) in which Castle stated the same word after Beckett had him cuffed. See more »

Goofs

When Beckett requested an APB in the previous episodes she said her badge number was 41319. However, when she introduces herself to the mistress, it's clear that the actual number on her badge is 0884. See more »

Quotes

Kate Beckett: [looking at the victim] Bondage cuffs, custom-made. Looks like our killer liked public play.
Richard Castle: How can you tell the difference between custom and regular?
Kate Beckett: The leather is too high-quality to be mass produced, and it's hand stitched.
Richard Castle: No, I mean how can *you* tell the difference?

Delightfully naughty episode, giving Beckett some fine dialog.
9 March 2010 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

I especially enjoyed this tongue-in-cheek segment, where S&M was given the "within broadcast TV limits" tasteful treatment, yet still providing the fans with some titillation. Beckett was allowed to become a very playful character, tantalizing Castle over & over with her sexual innuendo, "knowing" attitude, and even hints at a darker private life than he (or the viewer) could have previously imagined.

The mystery of finding the killer of a young student unravels with the show's usual quota of red herrings and surprises, and I liked the fact that nearly the entire cast of guest stars were believable suspects. Of special fun was the repeated in-jokes; for example I live in Chelsea and the writers positing an "s&m district" just north of my neighborhood isn't that far from the truth. In the bad old days the s&m goings on were just to the southwest (now officially the trendy Meatpacking District), where famed dens of iniquity like The Hellfire Club, Manhole, Hell and The Vault have all been replaced by restaurants. I miss the receptionist who always had a funny line answering the phone when you called Hell on Gansevoort St. (put yourself in her place: "This is Hell...").

The teaser plugged a special 2-part event a fortnight from now, guest starring Dana Delaney, and I'm looking forward to that. I recall the many IMDb naysayers at the time of this series' launch, thinking the concept was old hat, but the chemistry between the two leads, buttressed by better & better writing and a welcome spotlight on the supporting cast (missing in the first few episodes) spells success in my book.
