Mike Royce, Becket's former police mentor, who lost his bounty-hunter license when she arrested him, is murdered while visiting New York, possibly by a fellow passenger from L.A. The captain takes her off the case but she uses extant leave. Castle comes along, having to visit his book's movie set anyway. Informally backed up by Ryan and Esposito, they soon find Royce must have been after the manufacturer of the dissolving type of bullet he was killed with. The trail of arms-dealings and new crimes leads back to New York, fortunately as LAPD detective Kyle Seeger, who follows, wants them out as much as Montgomery ordered Becket back.

When Castle visits the set of "Heat Wave" in L.A., he and the film's director pass by a set of an airplane fuselage. This is the real Castle
(2009) set on which Nathan Fillion
and Stana Katic
shot the scenes of Castle and Beckett flying to California and back to New York. See more

You should have stayed out of this, Royce.
You have no idea the hell that's about to rain down on you.
