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.

Did You Know?


The lead hostage negotiator is introduced as Sgt. Roman, a likely nod to the character, Danny Roman, played by Samuel L Jackson in The Negotiator (1998). Other pieces of dialogue are suggestive of this homage. See more »


When Beckett is bemoaning losing her job with the government, she comments "I can't believe the FBI fired me." But she worked directly for the Attorney General; and although the AG's office and FBI are both under the jurisdiction of the Department of Justice, it's implied when Beckett began working there that the AG's office and the FBI are separate agencies.

Lanie Parish: Girl, what are you doing here?
Kate Beckett: Uh... Captain Gates said that I could come.
Lanie Parish: That's not what I meant. Shouldn't you be off looking at wedding venues or something?
Kate Beckett: No, we haven't even set a date. We're just trying to enjoy our engagement. Why is everyone trying to rush us?
Kevin Ryan: Think you're being rushed now, wait until after the wedding. Not ten minutes from the altar, they'll all be like "When are you two having a baby?".
Javier Esposito: Bro, your wife's hormonal because she's pregnant. What's your excuse?
