Kevin Ryan: Apparently, Lars was really into the Middle East.
Richard Castle: Oh, a region known for its sordid history of beheading. And yet... Lars was beheaded here in Manhattan.
[picking up a book from the bookshelf and showing it to them]
Richard Castle: Hmm. Perhaps Lars made the mistake of telling the king the ending of the story. Am I right?

I cannot remember the last time that I have enjoyed an episode that much. Why? Because the story was so familiar to me, If you had told me that an episode would revolve around my country I would look at you the way Ryan and Espo looked at Castle when he said he saw a genie. The genie angle was gold, So detailed and well thought out and Castle's gimmicks were better than ever. It's like the writers of the show were given a jump start and were put into high gear.

It was like watching the old Castle, The way Kate & Castle interacted was so real, I still have a hard time believing that these two aren't really a couple, Which goes to show you the talent behind these actors. As one of the people that have had doubts about this show, It's episodes like this one that prove me wrong...
