When he leaves a meeting with Castle, Mystery Man uses a chess metaphor that a well-placed pawn is more powerful than a king. Although it's the most important piece, and its capture the ultimate goal, the king actually has little real power within the game. See more »

Quotes

Kate Beckett: I have a procedure to follow. He didn't provide his coat willingly, so I'm gonna have to get a court order.

Writer's Block?
19 January 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode the crime of the week takes a backseat for the subplot about Kate's mother's murder conspiracy.

However, the writing was very poor. Where I expected the story to be smart and funny it became very grim and dour. The treatment of the plot points was lacking and left me feeling very unsatisfied. The emphasis that there are very powerful people behind the conspiracy was overdone and very ham-handed -- we are told not very much about these people other than they are powerful enough to cause trouble for the mayor.

Poor Castle is left running around cloak and dagger style and really gets nothing in return for his pains other than the emphasis that the conspiracy is very much alive and will stop at nothing to keep the secrets out of the public eye.
