Did You Know?


When first questioned by Beckett and Castle, Simon mentions a "tachyon based technology" that allows humans to open portals in time. First proposed in 1962, Tachyons are hypothetical sub-atomic particles that, theoretically, move faster than light. In fiction, the "tachyon-based time travel devices" are mention in the Trojan Horse book saga by Spanish author Juan Jose Benitez, in which a mysterious character, having traveled to first century Judea, narrates the life of Jesus of Nazareth.

When Beckett spills her coffee over Paul Deschile's letter, the coffee stains don't match the ones shown on the photograph from the murder board.

line #1: in the date the year '2007' is covered in coffee; line #2: in the address line, the last six letters of the name 'Wickfield' (KFIELD) are covered in coffee; line #3: the first two words 'I know' are half-covered in coffee; line #4: in the first word 'hundreds' REDS is covered in coffee;

Beckett dries the letter off and looks at it. Everything on it matches the line #1-4 description from above.

Then she compares it to the photographed letter on the murder board.

line #1: in the date the year '2007' is still covered with coffee stains, but differently than from the actual letter she is looking at; line #2: in the address line, the name of 'Wickfield' is almost completely free of coffee stains; line #3: the first three words 'I know you' are free of coffee stains; line #4: the first two words 'hundreds of' are free of coffee stains;

Then Beckett looks back at the actual letter in her hands and it miraculously matches the photograph on the murder board. See more »

Magic Season, special episode
16 October 2016 | by johnfairhurst784See all my reviews

I'd got rather ho-hum with 'Castle' up to Season 4 and for various reasons missed Season 5 but decided to try Season 6 for old times sake and have I been glad I did.

In this episode, the Other is brought much more to the fore than is usual even in Castle, and while Beckett retains her sceptical nature for much of the episode she find it ever harder to maintain as the facts of the case run up against it, and Castle deals with his daughter who's planning on moving out of the family home and in with her wholly inappropriate (in Castle's opinion!) boyfriend almost as badly as you'd expect.

The banter between the characters has always been one of the things that drew me to Castle and in this series the team are treating things almost as if they were new to the series except they already know each others so well they get the best out of their interactions.
