Did You Know?
Beckett was about 19 when her mother was murdered. In "Castle: Rise
(2011)", it is mentioned Beckett is 31; since episodes appear to be set in the year in which they aired, it can be assumed she was born in 1980. And in "Castle: Always
(2012)", Beckett visits her mother's grave, the headstone of which reads that she died in 1999. See more
To obtain reluctant witnesses' cooperation, Castle will occasionally offer to name a character in his Nikki Heat books after them, often right in front of Beckett, or Ryan and Esposito. While it might appear to be a harmless offer, any competent defense attorney could paint it as bribery and witness tampering, which are both illegal; as cops, they don't seem bothered by an action that could potentially get a solid case against a suspect thrown out at trial.
