Storyline

Castle worked out that Ben Conrad was a scape-goat, shot by the real serial killer. He was too late to prevent Becket's place being bombed, but she survived, having being in the bath at the time. Shaw's profile and databases lead to a likely suspect, Doherty, actually deceased: the new fake identity. The team stakes his place, but the killer expected them. He gets away, but is identified. Becket is barricaded in castle's home, but the killer captures Shaw. Only Castle manages to think like him and prevent a big bang finale. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

After shooting the suspect at the end of the episode, Beckett says "Good shot" to which Castle replies "I was aiming for his head." This is a direct quote from an episode of Firefly - 'Shindig' - which Fillion also starred in. See more »

Goofs

In Season 1 (Home is Where the Heart Stops), Castle and Beckett are at the shooting range, and he gets three shots in the 10-ring with ease; however, in this episode of Castle when he is aiming the gun at Dunn, he shoots him in the hand, but then says to Kate "I was aiming for his head." While Castle is shown to be an excellent pistol shot on the range, he is not a trained police officer or a skilled/experienced fighter. Therefore, it's entirely plausible that having to shoot under stress would severely affect his marksmanship. This happens even to trained police officers and soldiers. See more »

Kate Beckett is no match for Nikki Heat or Jordan Shaw.
3 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Richard Castle solves the puzzle posed at the end of the first part of this two-part show and effectively saves the life of Kate Beckett, the infallible super detective. However it is too much to expect her to be grateful and remember this fact.

Special Agent Jordan Shaw continues her very impressive role, whilst Kate Beckett, the infallible super detective, is her usual selfish, everything must be done her way, self.

The serial killer plot is predictable and conveniently the computer technology makes the task of finding him considerably easier than might ordinarily be the case.

The serial killer continues to interact with Nikki Heat, not Kate Beckett, the infallible super detective. Jordan Shaw is taken hostage by the serial killer and Kate Beckett has to work with Richard Castle to save the day. Richard Castle saves the life of Kate Beckett, the infallible super detective, again and this time she is almost grateful. Kate Beckett quickly forgets these life-saving incidents and promptly returns to ridiculing Richard Castle.

Special Agent Jordan Shaw offers some sage advice to Kate Beckett, the infallible super detective, about Richard Castle, but Kate Beckett is not interested. She offers the extremely clichéd "It's complicated" in reply.

What is not complicated is that Jordan Shaw is the real deal and Kate Beckett, the infallible super detective, is merely a pretender in her company.
