Castle is excited and sadden that the next case is the murder of his favorite 1980's action movie star, Lance DeLorca, and speculates that his past in the Spanish Secret Service may be the key. The NYPD rather bets on a new action movie he's involved in with his former co-star, Brock Harmon, and his son, Trey Harmon. Both avenues yield surprises. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


A subplot of the episode is Beckett packing up and moving out of her apartment, presumably to move into the loft with Castle. In "Castle: He's Dead, She's Dead (2010)", while investigating the death of an alleged psychic, Castle recounts a reading she once did for him about "a beautiful woman" who would one day move into his loft and stay with him forever. At the time, Castle believed it was referring to his mother, but in hindsight it could also refer to his new bride. See more »


It is claimed that Enrique Gomez was an operative of the Spanish CNI (Centro Nacional de Inteligencia). However, the CNI was only founded in 2002. If he truly was the role model of an 80s action movie star, he would either have to have served in the CESID (Centro Superior de Información de la Defensa) - which is unlikely, given that it was only founded in 1977 - or, more likely, the late Francoist SECED (Servicio Central de Documentación), which existed from 1972 to 1977.
