Castle and Beckett look into the murder of a young mathematician gunned down with a 200-year-old bullet, sparking some wild theories by Castle about a time-travelling killer. When their investigation uncovers a tricked-out DeLorean and a suspect in Victorian clothing, is it possible Castle's crazy idea has some validity? This winding tale twists through the towers of Wall Street and into the world of a secret steampunk society that embraces the romance and simplicity of the past, while coupling it with the hope and promise of the future.

The first-run airing closes with a modified version of Stephen J. Cannell
's production logo (Cannell typing on his typewriter, then pulling out the page; it flutters down to a stack of papers which curl into a series of concentric C's). Here, the words "Mentor, Colleague, Friend" have been added, and the pulled page now flutters out of frame, leaving "We'll miss you, pal" on the screen. Cannell passed away earlier that month.

Smooth bore weapons have no rifling so there is no ballistic evidence to link a ball back to a gun. Apart from the obvious that it cannot come out of a barrel smaller than the size of the ball you cannot even be sure of the bore of the barrel it was fired from ! Also a lead ball will be badly distorted after hitting a target as they are mostly soft Lead. See more
