Recently US-nationalized Syrian cab driver Amir Alhabi, who runs his own company with cousin Fariq Yusef, is shot in his cab after a 45 tour back to the start point with consulate 'security attaché' (spy) Fariq Yusef. Homeland Security Agent Mark Fallon takes charge after his keys lead to a storage unit with cobalt radiation feared to stem from a nuclear weapon. Castle is officially discarded but keeps in the loop, tracing a payment to Amir, which he believes a fake as cover-up, shifting focus to employed cab driver Kevin McCann. Written by KGF Vissers

When someone becomes an NYPD "Police Officer" they receive a badge and a badge number. That number is retained. If they get a gold badge, that is a new number. So an officer can use either their original badge number as an ordinary officer or any subsequently awarded badge number, depending on the priority they want to invoke. See more »


Richard Castle: How's Josh?
Kate Beckett: Fine. He's, uh... he's on his way to Haiti to do another Doctors Without Borders mission.
Richard Castle: How long?
Kate Beckett: [quietly] I dunno.
[she smiles]
Kate Beckett: It's so, funny, Castle. You know, at first, I loved that he was so busy. It's just... it just gave me an opportunity to keep one foot out the door, just in case.
Richard Castle: But with one foot out the door, it's hard to know where you stand.
Kate Beckett: And even if I did, I mean, what does it mean? He's out there, he's saving people. I just... how do you even compete with that?

A Murder Turned Terrorist Plot!
6 August 2013 | by (Seymour Tennessee) – See all my reviews

When a Syrian cab driver is found dead. What turns out from a murder, turns into something more sinister. As they find radioactive material and evidence that turns into a terrorist plot.

At first a Homeland Security agent comes to be aid them then, takes over after what happens into the sinister plot. Mark Fallon, his name comes off a jerk but in a sense, doing his job while interrogating the suspects. Which Beckett does not like. Due to racial profiling.

And after Castle does something he is not suppose to do, and Beckett OK's it, Fallon due to national security throws them off the case despite Captain Montgomery's pleas to keep them on.

But the two do not give up and end up in a freezer with a device that is nuclear and loose in the city. Will they blow up or will NYPD and DHS come to rescue them? Great episode but love the second part even better.
