Sam Parker's corpse is found in a garbage chute. However, he's identified not only by his wife, Helen, but by a fiancée, who only knew him as 'bachelor' Jake Holland. Also, under this second identity, he got his present job at a company which overtook, by means of innovation, his first employer's business. His brother-in-law found out and was mad not only about his cheating on his sister but because he hadn't paid back any of a big loan he gave Sam. Meanwhile, Becket agrees to having Alexis intern at the police station. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


One of the many episodes of Castle (2009) in which an alumni of the "Whedon-Verse" appears alongside Nathan Fillion. D.B. Woodside, who plays Lance Carlberg in this episode, appeared alongside Nathan Fillion in the seventh and final season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1996). See more »


The killer used what one of the detectives describes as a "poor man's silencer" so that nobody heard the shot - sticking the muzzle of the gun into the neck of a 2-liter plastic soda bottle and firing through the bottom. This will, in fact work - for a 9MM or smaller automatic pistol. But the gun used turns out to be a heavy revolver - probably a .357, which is too powerful for the trick to work. A revolver cannot be effectively silenced, anyway, because the gap between cylinder and frame allows some of the blast to escape. See more »

Richard Castle: [on radio flying a toy helicopter by remote] Sector six maverick. This is your captain up and on the mount. Listen up, ladies and gentlemen, our fugitive has been on the run for 90 minutes. We've in the pipes. Let's keep our feet dry this time. Jungle radio. This is One Delta Bravo. Eyes on suspect. Requesting backup. Over. Requesting permission to deploy laser-activated radioactive immobilizer.
Martha Rodgers: Permission denied.
