While investigating the death of an Irish mobster, Beckett and Castle uncover a local turf war that may be connected to both a late-night infomercial guru and an international drug smuggling operation. But the case turns agonizingly personal when evidence emerges that the killer they're chasing may have had a hand in Beckett's mother's murder.
Did You Know?
When Beckett discovers the bags of drugs hidden in the bus-station locker, she cuts one open and tastes a bit of it to identify it as heroin. Although this is a very common thing for cops to do in TV shows and movies, it is strictly against actual police procedure. Aside from rules against law-enforcement officers ingesting any illegal drugs, there is also the chance that an unknown powder found during an investigation might be laced with an even more dangerous or lethal poison (anthrax, ricin, and cyanide all also have white-powder forms).

When Montgomery calls Beckett into his office and offers her his "poor man's painkiller," you can see her open the flask and take a drink as the camera focuses past her on Montgomery. The camera then immediately changes angles to view her from the front, and she can be seen opening the flask again and drinking from it, though she had no time to lower her hand or close the flask.

Meet the late Jack Coonan.
Why is that name familiar?
'Cause it probably crossed all our desks a dozen times in the last few years. Aggravated assault, ADW, arson.
Coonan had a heavy rep. Word is he's an enforcer for the Westies.
Okay, remind me. Who are the Westies, again?
Irish mafia out of Hell's Kitchen.
They deal in cargo theft, counterfeiting, extortion.
And public urination on St. Patrick's Day.
