Castle can barely enjoy his cool-renovated office or control Alexis' self-righteous incursion into his PI-business, as Kate goes missing. He finds the inscribed ring he just gave her at the scene of a quadruple murder of apparently unconnected men. He promises to keep the NYPD out for the collaboration of obnoxious, insurance-employed English ex-cop Hayley Vargas, who came to investigate a five-fold identity theft. The trail leads to evidence that Kate wasn't abducted but kept others at gunpoint, and it all connects with cahoots of her mother's murderer, jailed senator William Bracken. Written by KGF Vissers

This show changed for the better
22 September 2015 | by acrnkovich31-994-425336See all my reviews

Very very great episode. The writing was surprisingly excellent in ways that I would not have expected with the loss of the original show-runner. But it looks like the new show- runner has REALLY taken it on. The episode was intense, and still had funny moments without being corny, and actually explored the depths of the characters in a new way. My favorite part about it though is that the story-line and character development was in still in-line with their characters from the original episodes and didn't cut corners to make it happen. Everything was intense, awesome, confusing, and yet still actually made sense. Very great episode. I like the way this new direction is going.
