Storyline

Lottery-multimillionaire Jay Hixton is shot in the heart at home around midnight. He was apparently forced to open his safe. It contained a gun even butler Reginald Easley didn't know about, which was laid besides him, and a bag, which was taken, containing $100,000 cash and a blue dye bomb, which exploded in a maintenance worker's face. Various suspects arise from Hixton's bizarre generosity, his own murky past and his family, an ex and junkie daughter, and even his winning lottery ticket a year ago. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

When Beckett is investigating the crime scene, she claims that the gun (.357 Magnum) found next to the victim would create a larger entry wound than that on the victim. However the bullet diameter of a .357 Magnum is almost identical to that of the 9mm which is claimed to be the actual murder weapon. These weapons would leave entry wounds of comparable size and could not be distinguished with the naked eye. See more »

Quotes

Richard Castle: Hey, Ryan, what would you do if you won the lottery?
Kevin Ryan: Winery.
Richard Castle: [to Beckett] See? Everyone thinks about it.
Captain Roy Montgomery: [approaching] Everybody thinks about what?
Richard Castle: What they would do if they won the lottery.
Captain Roy Montgomery: A big-ass boat, 60-footer. Monster spinnaker hanging off the bow, two deep-sea rods hanging off the stern.
Richard Castle: Sweet.
Kate Beckett: Okay, while you guys are fantasizing about the size of your rods, I'm gonna go and interrogate our suspect.

Castle is worse and worse than before...
24 September 2012 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

When I just started to watch Castle, it was very intelligent piece, in which I cannot predict "who was the murderer" and it was very nice and politely served.

In this third series I can see how Beckett only comes to interrogate room and randomly puts charges "So you did this, this and than you killed him", sometimes more times in one episode.

I don't like it like this. This is stupid. I want back that nice criminal hard cases (like that with FBI and false murderer which was other victim etc). I still like Castle as whole series, but I hope this and episodes like these is absolutely bottom of which I can see.
