Mike Royce, Becket's former police mentor, who lost his bounty-hunter license when she arrested him, is murdered while visiting New York, possibly by a fellow passenger from L.A. The captain takes her off the case but she uses extant leave. Castle comes along, having to visit his book's movie set anyway. Informally backed up by Ryan and Esposito, they soon find Royce must have been after the manufacturer of the dissolving type of bullet he was killed with. The trail of arms-dealings and new crimes leads back to New York, fortunately as LAPD detective Kyle Seeger, who follows, wants them out as much as Montgomery ordered Becket back. Written by

When Castle visits the set of "Heat Wave" in L.A., he and the film's director pass by a set of an airplane fuselage. This is the real Castle
(2009) set in which Nathan Fillion
and Stana Katic
shot the scenes of Castle and Beckett flying to California and back to New York. See more
The closeup shot of Beckett picking a lock shows a lock pick and tension tool inserted into a lock, and after being gently shaken the door pops open with ease. When picking a lock you still need to rotate the cylinder (usually at least 90°) the same as you would when using a key, picks don't make doors just magically open. See more

[Castle smiles and Beckett laughs to herself
I can't believe that I'm never gonna see him again.
You know, I thought when I first met you, that you were a mystery I was never gonna solve. Even now, after spending all this time with you, I... I'm still amazed. At the depth of your strength, your heart.
