Storyline

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

Goofs

A major plot point of this episode has to do with a so-called cobalt-60 "dirty bomb." Castle and Beckett are supposedly exposed to high levels of cobalt-60 radiation. Aside from the fact that no cobalt bombs have ever been built, the cobalt "tamper," as the shell of material surrounding the nuclear core of the weapon is called, is not radioactive before the explosion. The explosion transmutes the ordinary, inert cobalt-59 into its highly radioactive isotope, cobalt-60. Thus, no one could possibly be exposed to cobalt-60 radiation before the bomb goes off, unless the cobalt had been bombarded beforehand by a particle accelerator, a pointless exercise, as cobalt-60 rapidly loses radioactive effectiveness after transmutation, with a half-life of less than 5-and-a-half years.

Quotes

Kate Beckett: Castle, even if Amir is innocent, Jamal isn't.
Richard Castle: His guilt is predicated on Amir being a terrorist. Without that, Jamal is just another guy moving a crate. This all comes back to Amir.

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.
