Storyline

Beckett is contacted by John Raglan, the investigating detective on the homicide of her mother, who is dying and, tormented by his conscience, has information about the original failed investigation. But before he can pass it on, Raglan is murdered by a sniper in front of Castle and Beckett; determined to uncover what Raglan knew, Beckett begins to investigate old leads in her mother's murder, but is soon suspended from the case after her integrity is challenged by her emotional investment. As Ryan and Esposito continue the investigation, Castle and Beckett launch their own unofficial inquiries -- and both teams soon find themselves up against a mysterious individual with power and influence who is willing to kill to ensure his secrets remain safe.

Trivia

In the second scene at Beckett's apartment Castle tells Beckett, "I don't hang around here just to annoy you." and a few lines later she asks, "So why do you keep coming back, Rick?" This scene plays off a scene in the pilot where they are looking through his fan mail. In that scene she asks him, "Why are you here, Rick? Are you here to annoy me?". These were the only times she called him Rick to that point. See more »

Goofs

When Detective Ryan is being drowned in ice-cold water by Hal Lockwood's thugs, Lockwood explains the drowning effects to Esposito and how "he'll lose consciousness right away." Lockwood's mouth movements, however, do not match this line. See more »

Breath taken
24 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

First of all, read the above, some are well written.

I just saw it and I couldn't help it, I had to write a comment into awesome episode. (I had to create an account first)

This episode finally make a move on one of the series plot lines. Bring some characters to a whole new level. Lots of surprise, I held my breath (figure of speech) since the very first minutes until the final showdown. Some character's crisis too but some very good stuff between some.

I don't even dare to tell more about it since it's a "must be seen" episode in this "must be seen" series.

For me, this stuff is way above "Lost" (that's just my opinion, don't troll)
