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

Detective Raglan asks Beckett to meet him at a coffee-shop at 4th and Main. There is no Main street in Manhattan. Fictional or generic street names that don't necessarily exist in a particular town are often used in movies. This does not constitute a goof. See more »

Intense/moving
25 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the most intense and yet emotionally moving episode to date. Just when you think you have answers, all you end up with is more questions! Ryan and Esposito really step up to the plate in this episode. They really prove they are more than just good cops. Martha poses a great question to Rick, but of course he never directly answers it! But it seems that Rick is finally taking a look at things for what they really are. Beckett has never looked better. She is unbelievably gorgeous in this episode. However, she appears to show a different side of her self in this episode! A side that I personally love! Be sure and check this episode out. It would be great if you have already been watching the other seasons, but by itself, this episode is top notch! Excellent episode!
