Castle knows of four pizzerias named "Nick," with various combinations of the predicates terrific and/or authentic. But their owners, bitter rivals, continually sabotage each other with frat pranks. Then a corpse is found in the pizzeria oven, crisped, but killed by previous stabbing. The owner accuses his rivals, but no one is innocent and everyone has a dirty secret. And the victim, a former war correspondent who lost his edge after his daughter died in a car accident, was reporting on them about their "pizza wars." However, he'd also stumbled across the identity of 'urban myth' Cavallo, a drug lord who viciously executes rivals. Written by KGF Vissers

The various Nick's pizzerias in this episode are loosely based on the New York pizza wars where there are more than 40 pizza restaurants with some variation of the name Ray's in the name. They include Original Ray's, Famous Ray's and World Famous Original Ray's. See more »


When they asked Nick Jr. what time the pizza shop closed, he replied that they closed around 11 pm. The sign outside the shop says it's open from 11 am to Midnight. See more »


Kate Beckett: I thought Terrific Nick's on the East Side was number one.
Richard Castle: Uh, no. That's Authentic Terrific Nick's. This is just Authentic Nick's.
Kate Beckett: This isn't Terrific?
Richard Castle: No. Just Authentic. It's also not Terrific Authentic Nick's, but that's across the street.
Kate Beckett: Well what's the difference?
Lanie Parish: The difference is, this one has a dead body in the oven.
