Storyline

Castle is grieved when Becket, once regaining health, tells him to leave her time without calling for months. Yet when she returns to work after therapy, Ryan and Esposito tell Castle help them keep the case of her mothers killers going, behind ex-IA by-the-book-Captain Victoria Gates's back. They work out the only remaining angle are bank files lost in a fire, according to decorated officer Rod Halstead definitely no arson. Becket grudgingly passes her gun exam, but can't perform in real danger anymore in their assigned case, the ingeniously staged murder of a rock band member's girlfriend. The boys find Becket is the next, last logical target, and are surprisingly offered safety for all if the case is laid to rest, but things turn out differently. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

To avoid dealing with Castle's profession of love for her, Beckett claims ignorance about her shooting, but later admits to Dr. Burke that she remembers everything that happened. Although her lie is just a defense mechanism, trauma victims actually do remember either everything or nothing about their ordeal. See more »

Goofs

When Kate corners the guy trying to get out of the fire escape and he turns on her with gun extended, we hear the sound of an automatic pistol being cocked, although he is holding a revolver. See more »

Quotes

Richard Castle: This doesn't make any sense. It was supposed to be over. Montgomery sacrificed himself. Killing Lockwood and all his guys, he said he was ending it. He said he was doing it to keep her safe. So if the plan was to keep her safe, then why the hell are they still coming after her?
Det. Javier Esposito: I don't know, bro. God knows who else is involved.

Not bad, but something did not quite convince me...
8 October 2011 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Well, the last episode was so good that I expected more of this one. This show always manages to keep it as real as possible and that was one of the great things about it. Tropes are usually well used or well averted. No magical enhancement of photos, no databases of everything ever invented, no impossibly smart serial killers, great relationships with the characters... Yet this episode falls into some common places, clichés and predictable situations.

In the first scenes after the shooting they rush Beckett to the ER. The paramedics run a marathon to get there down what appears to be the longest corridor in the history of architecture, while Beckett of course bleeds to death. The doctor who takes her is...Josh! I mean, really?? Wasn't he a cardiac surgeon, why is he in the ER? It's a bullet, not a programmed bypass. And then all the blood, come on, she is like 100 pounds, if she really lost that much blood she'd be dead... After a 3 month break (good call) she gets back. Ryan and Esposito just say "Hi". She doesn't even see Lanie. I mean let's recall: shooting, near death experience, long time no see, Montgomery dead, new awful boss, and everyone just acts cool? No hugs, no cheers, no nothing? And Castle, well. He is supposed to be so mad that he kind of ignores her and then says "I'm angry". Come on, any man in his place would get really pi++ed off, at least get into some heated argument over why she disappeared like that while recovering from a bullet in the chest... Then there is a scene when a man aims at Beckett and she freezes. Again, good one. But then there is a second scene exactly like this for her to face her fear (was it really necessary in this same episode?) with Castle behind her whispering "You are OK, you can do it"... There is one scene though that came out great when Beckett breaks down because everyone involved in the case is dead and she realizes she has no more leads to follow.

I always considered this show to be really smart and original, with actors that make it worth watching. Amusing whodunit full of twists were mixed among episodes that follow the mother's case, which are generally darker and more "adrenalinic", except for this one. Let's hope the writers can steer the show to better seas and not fall into cheesy stuff or drag everything so much that it ends up tiring the audience.
