The murder of a Latino army veteran ex-con, ex-Lobos-street gang member quickly links to a break-in in the late captain's home, to steal only and all his old police files, and yields the fingerprints of the sniper who nearly killed Becket. Castle realizes continuing the investigation will draw him back and probably cost her life by squashing his deal with deep throat. Her refusal to back down causes a break up with Castle, and Gates suspends both her and Esposito for continuing an unauthorized investigation in a case assigned to another NYPD team. Now Becket commits romantically. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Beckett's mother's tombstone reads "vincit omnia veritas" which is Latin for "truth wins everything" (litteraly) or "truth conquers all". It is, however, written somewhat unusually, as typical Latin practice is to put the verb at the end of the sentence, thus: "omnia veritas vincit". See more »


The climactic scene - supposedly set in NYC - clearly takes place atop the Rosslyn Hotel, a Los Angeles landmark. See more »


Kate Beckett: [discussing Alexis' forthcoming graduation] Of course you don't understand why she's taking her graduation speech so seriously. You were probably the guy who had nothing on but boxers underneath his gown.
Richard Castle: That is so insulting. If you must know, I was naked underneath.

One Of The Best Season Finales I Have Ever Seen!
8 May 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

********CONTAINS SPOILERS********* Whoooaaaaa!!! What an episode! In Hindi Film parlance, this had all the ingredients of what is called a "Masala" Script. But it had one attributes which made everything come together seamlessly- FINESSE. Although the final (rather, finally) coming together of Castle and Beckett was expected, the architecture of the whole episode leading to the climax was excellent. The scene where Castle finally expresses his feelings is undoubtedly the finest scene of Nathan Fillion in the entire series. He expresses a gamut of emotions - love, fear, anger and finally detachment with such ease, that his simplicity just blows you away. The scenes between Esposito and Ryan have also been done well. A special mention should be made for the climax sequence. The speech of Alexis, the music montage, the mixture of feelings flowing around- Ah! What Mastery!!!! I have seen quite a few season finales..... and this stands up there with the best. Hope the next season is the final one..... As it is said... Endings are inevitable.
