Action movie star Zane Cannon was murdered while rehearsing a Hamlet play co-starring Naomi Fox directed by Elodie, both seriously reputed. The team soon finds links with Zane's ex-con stepbrother Johnny Toro, Guadalajara drug cartel-baron Jorge 'El Oso' Zamacona and his so far clean-reputed brother businessman Hector. Castke gets 'kidnapped' by Jorge, who demands a script glorifying his life. Meanwhile the Broadway scene is proven far from innocent either. Written by KGF Vissers

Kevin Ryan: I just hope I wasn't too obvious back there. I'm just such a big fan of Erin Cherloff.
Javier Esposito: Who, the director?
Kevin Ryan: Yeah, she's amazing. I'm... just speaking with her, I got this great idea for the play at Sarah Grace's preschool where I'm a volunteer at.
Javier Esposito: Wait, preschools have plays now? My preschool was going to work with my mom every day.
Richard Castle: Oh, same here. I grew up in hallways just like this. Spending time in my mother's dressing room, experimenting with her costumes, her makeup.
