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

Did You Know?


When Beckett is in the club asking about drugs she says she wants something that will make her feel "shiny". This is thought to be yet another reference to Firefly (2002) which starred Nathan Fillion. "Shiny" was a term often used by the characters as a replacement for the word okay. See more »


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 »


Kate Beckett: Sounds like that money really turned Hixton into a different person for a little while.
Richard Castle: Yeah, money doesn't change who you are. It just magnifies your personality.
Javier Esposito: Well, it wasn't all bad. He also bought a house for the clerk that sold him the winning ticket, a mausoleum for his dead neighbor and three acres on the moon.
Richard Castle: Get outta town. He's right down the crater from me.
Kate Beckett: Why doesn't it surprise me that you have property on the moon?
Richard Castle: You know what? Laugh it up. When the earth is a desiccated ...

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.
