New York City safety inspector Alan Masters inexplicably survives a poisoning already ruled fatal by Lanie's examination. Despite police protection, he's electrocuted in his bed, again called dead but very alive. Castle takes Alan home but can't resisting coaching him to date a foxy girl from the research lab he's secretly admiring, but she instantly accepts a dinner date, where a mob killer arrives to offer him 'protection'. Vikram Singh finds out that LockSat met with Caleb Brown. Written by KGF Vissers

In bed at the beginning, when Castle takes Beckett's phone, he answers the incoming call and tells the caller to hold. They then proceed to discuss hunting LokSat, which is supposed to be a secret covert operation between them and Vikram, with no movement on his part that indicates Castle muted the phone call or put the caller on hold, meaning the line is still open.

Castle's ridiculous theories

I have loved this show for years, but the current season is driving me up the wall. The underlying stories are interesting, but Castle's continuing invention of insane theories, conspiracies and motives has become seriously boring and detrimental to the overall quality of the show.

In this episode, the relentless, ridiculous 'superhero' theme was so overdone that it became tedious, repetitious and overwhelmed the underlying plot.

While the other characters in the series have grown, Castle has become a caricature.
