Carol Thornton
Monica Finch
Ike Thornton
Fred Cana


Multiple ex-con break-in expert Paul Finch is found in his car electrocution-tortured, possibly an accidental death. His widow believes he took on a last job after years in the clear - probably the recent Manhattan tunnel bank robbery. The team is delighted to be joined by Javier Esposito's mate from the 54th precinct, handsome hot-shot Tom Demming (from Castle's point of view, too much to Beckett's taste). The robbery victims include Fred Cana, collector for untouchable crime king Victor Racine, who is believed to have killed Javier's previous partner Isaac 'Ike' Thornton and managed to make him seem corrupt so the team was broken up. IA Lt. Stan Holliwell gets involved after Ike's fingerprints are found on Finch's corpse. Written by KGF Vissers

Lanie Parish: So... what's with the handsome robbery detective?
Kate Beckett: Demming? We're just working the case together, that's all.
Lanie Parish: [skeptical] Mm-hmm. But then again, you have been working with Castle for a year, and not a damn thing has happened, so... We had a pool going; I lost a lot of money on you two.
