Storyline

Castle's doubts about method actress Natalie Rhodes playing the title lead in the movie version of his Niki Heat novel "Heat Wave" are laughed away by Becket, which changes after the star joins the team to observe and spookily-well imitates Becket's every way and even her ridiculously expensive taste come in handy. The team's current case is the murder of match-maker Stacy, in whose home a fortune in cash is found, so on top of theatrically dumped ex Brad Williams, her recent clients, their targets and her P.I. Duke Jones, must pass muster. Written by KGF Vissers - Daniel Marjos

Goofs

Castle tells Beckett that he didn't sleep with Natalie because it was "Too meta." However, because he breaks up with Gina in the next episode, we know that he was still in a relationship with Gina at this time, and that's why he wouldn't have slept with Natalie. This was aired out of sequence. "Poof You're Dead" was written to air ahead of it. From the writer's view, Castle had already broken up with Gina when Natalie tried to seduce him.

Quotes

Richard Castle: [Castle dislikes the actress playing Nikki Heat] Nikki Heat is classy, she's complicated. She's a thinking man's cop.
Kate Beckett: No, we can't judge a book by its cover.
Richard Castle: Yes, actually. Yes, I can, when it's my book.

Another murder, oh darn, but wait, Castle has received the dailies from the film based on his novel 'Nikki Heat', and he is not very pleased. He thinks the actress playing the lead, Natalie (Laura Prepon), is totally wrong for the role. Then his daughter Alexis (Molly Quinn) chimes in praising Natalie in roles from other movies (which she was not allowed to view) quite strongly, but digressing. The chemistry among Nathan, Laura, and Stana was unquestionable. Although Castle (Nathan Fillion) was at first put off with Natalie characterizing his beloved Nikki Heat (Stana Katic/Kate Beckett), he soon 'warmed up' to the idea. Another murder ensued with Natalie 'acting' more like Beckett than she herself knew. Best episode (IMHO) ever!
