Castle finally gets Beckett, who admits so only in therapy, she may have made him wait too long when he teams up for an investigation with her colorful colleague detective inspector Ethan Slaughter, a cowboy style bulldog, who was assigned multiple decapitated Jamaican corpses from the Irish Westies gang member Brian Reilly's maverick son. Although uncomfortable with the ruffian style, gentleman sleuth Castle proves his value while they discard a simple gang war and focus on newcomer Cesar Vales's Mexican gang. Castle not only repeatedly appeals to his former team, but actually turns to them when he disagrees with Slaughter's theory as well as his bully blackmail method. Written by
