New York City safety inspector Alan Masters inexplicably survives a poisoning already ruled fatal by Lanie's autopsy. Despite police protection, he's electrocuted in his bed, again called dead but very alive. Castle takes Alan home but can't resisting coaching him to date a foxy girl from the research lab he's secretly admiring for long, but she instantly accepts a dinner date, where a mob killer arrives hired to help cover up the loose end in the bribing of incorruptible Masters' colleague, whom he got fired. Vikram Singh finds out that LockSat met basically good Caleb Brown, so Kate bugs him to help set a trap. Written by KGF Vissers

In bed at the beginning of the episode, when Castle takes Beckett's phone, he answers the incoming call and tells the caller to hold. They then proceed to discuss hunting LokSat, which is supposed to be a secret covert operation between them and Vikram, with no movement on his part that indicates Castle muted the phone call or put the caller on hold, meaning the line is still open.

Richard Castle: I think it's time we shake things up. Move to Paris, you know, uh, search for buried treasure in Nepal. We could fly a hot air balloon across the Sahara.
Kate Beckett: You know what? I love all of those ideas, but I just became captain, and you have your P.I. business.
Richard Castle: And then there's LokSat.
Kate Beckett: Exactly.

Castle's ridiculous theories
28 April 2016 | by (Dallas Texas) – See all my reviews

I have loved this show for years, but the current season is driving me up the wall. The underlying stories are interesting, but Castle's continuing invention of insane theories, conspiracies and motives has become seriously boring and detrimental to the overall quality of the show.

In this episode, the relentless, ridiculous 'superhero' theme was so overdone that it became tedious, repetitious and overwhelmed the underlying plot.

While the other characters in the series have grown, Castle has become a caricature.
