Ex-cop Angelo Vasquez, reformed since ten years but unemployed, was murdered in the home of his fiancée, Emma Briggs. She ran, took hostages in a dentist practice and asks only for Castle, whom she claims to trust, unlike the police, to prove her innocence of the murder. Becket now is the one officially out of the loop, yet allowed to work with the team. They find out incriminating elements from Emma's past, yet castle keeps finding interpretations potentially in her favor while believing in her being framed, so elaborately it requires brains and clout, which both turn up.
