Storyline

Only Becket, on whom the lead character was based, pretends not to be excited when one of Castle's books is chosen for a Hollywood movie. An anonymous, amused 'fan' calls the precinct to report his murder from a Grand Central Station phone booth, where the victim is found, shot with five bullets hand-marked to spell out 'NIKKI'. It's personal injury lawyer Alex Peterman. More calls, bodies, a deliberate clue and messages follow spelling 'will burn'. From the second murder, the FBI sends serial killer agent Jordan Shaw, who soon returns Castle's admiration when he deciphers clues. An apparent solution proves most dangerous.

Nikki Heat is the famous detective not Kate Beckett, as Jordan Shaw takes control.
3 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Moves are afoot to turn the novel Heat Wave into a movie. Richard Castle shares this news with Kate Beckett, the infallible super detective, and she is her typical rude, insulting self, reminding Richard Castle that she really does not want him around.

The focus then shifts to the new case which involves a serial killer who is obsessed with Nikki Heat, not Kate Beckett, the infallible super detective. This provides an opportunity to introduce the impressive Dana Delany to the show as Special Agent Jordan Shaw. Jordan Shaw is clever and talented. She also has a large team and lots of great equipment. She works well with Richard Castle and acknowledges his assistance, something Kate Beckett, the infallible super detective, routinely struggles to do. Beckett becomes jealous of the working relationship between Castle and Shaw and in contrast to her attitude at the top of the show, wants Castle to share everything with her before he shares it with Jordan Shaw.

This two-part show has a cliffhanger at the end speculating whether Kate Beckett will survive.

Kate Becker clearly has a long way to go before she gets to the class of Jordan Shaw, both professionally and personally. Whether by accident or design the very impressive Jordan Shaw represents very serious competition for Kate Beckett, the infallible super detective. However this theme is very rarely touched upon by the writers in the show.
