Father Joe McMurtry was fatally shot after meeting his childhood friend, Mickey Dolan, who is now a big Irish mobster. Taking the case allows Castle and Becket to escape from a disastrous dinner where his mother, as host, and her father, Jim, have a disagreement, which spills over into grim tensions between the sleuth couple. Calling on Leo, the only witness who may talk, they lose all means of communication while gangsters set out to chase to them. Ryan and Esposito realize they must be in big trouble when they can't contact them. They do some sleuthing of their own and come up with an FBI link which proves their basic assumptions are wrong. Meanwhile, Dolan catches up with Castle. Written by KGF Vissers

Beckett and Castle barricade themselves in the witnesses apartment while attackers try to break down the door. The attackers manage to break the door open with exception of the chain lock and the dresser that is wedged against door. The camera changes to the attackers point of view and you can see the attacker never actually make it into the apartment before they take off running. When Esposito gets to the apartment he pushes the door open you can clearly see the chain is intact but not attached to the door. When Esposito enters the apartment you can see the dresser is no longer wedged against the door and the apartment has been trashed. Since the attackers never entered the apartment the chain should have still been attached to door and dresser should have still been wedged against door. It should also be mentioned that since nobody entered the apartment and Beckett, Castle and the witness had already left there is no reason the apartment should have been trashed. See more »
