Accompanying Martha to the bank, where she pigheadedly refuses his financial help, Castle's speculations over the phone with Becket that surgical mask-equipped customers may be robbers proves correct when everyone is held at gun-point. The call makes Becket the inexperienced hostage negotiator. Castle works out and manages to communicate both crucial and puzzling information. The hostage-chapter ends spectacularly abruptly, only to launch a very different hunt for the brain, who wasn't after cash at all. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Castle comments that the bank robber Dr. Howser could have picked a better name as an alias. Nathan Fillion was in Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (2008) with Neil Patrick Harris, the actor who played Doogie Howser. See more »


When Beckett enters the bank dressed as a paramedic, she is not wearing gloves. When she and Castle move "Sal Martino" onto the gurney, she has a glove on her right hand but her left hand is bare. When she exits the bank and meets Alexis, she is wearing gloves on both hands. See more »


[first lines]
Martha Rodgers: This is *outrageous*, sir! You are nothing but a well-dressed loan shark!
Mr. Davenport: Ms. Rodgers, I assure you , this is a very competitive interest rate, considering your financial history. However, if you son co-signs...
Richard Castle: Yes.
Martha Rodgers: No, no, no, no. This is my loan, not his. To pay for repairs to *my* acting studio, not his.

On my part, this one is the first more than good episode of this new season of "Castle". It's the return of the "breath taking moments" and all the emotion we lived in the previous season. Richard and Martha gets cought up in a bank robbery involving. . . scrubs ?!? Kate rushes to the scene figure out a wait to get them out of there alive, but she must face the captain of the Tactical Forces who, of course, want to do things his way. Alexis, arrived at the scene, can't get her boyfriend on the phone to support her in this moment of crisis. Now, after viewing that episode, I'm thrilled again about the series and can't wait for the next episode. So far, I was only watching it the episodes because I had too, but the fire is back.
