Castle attempts to get Beckett to plan their honeymoon. She thinks it’s more prudent to set a date first. Castle argues that planning the honeymoon will help them set the date. He suggests New Zealand, but she realizes that he just wants to take a tour through Middle Earth on their honeymoon. Beckett wants them to go somewhere neither of them have ever been, but that unfortunately doesn’t leave very many places, since Castle and his ex-wives were apparently very well traveled.
They arrive at the crime scene, the docks, and find Lanie being comforted by Ryan and Esposito. Ryan goes over the case with them: a security guard found Pam Hodges hanging from a pole last night. Lanie is understandably shaken because Pam looks exactly like her. There is absolutely no relation, though. Pam is originally from Florida and is a former prostitute. When they are able to track down her uncle, he tells them that Pam came up to New York because of a job, but he didn’t know what she did. He only knows where she lived because he remembers where the cab dropped her off.
Yet another preview clip of tonight’s episode of Castle!
Thanks to Antenna Free TV, we’ve got a bit of a Castle casting scoop! I’ll put it under a cut in case anyone that hasn’t already heard this doesn’t want to be spoiled:
Will Season 6 of Castle have a two-parter? –Vanessa
When last we tuned in — pre-season — series creator Andrew W. Marlowe said, “If we have a compelling enough reason,” that tradition would continue — though at the time, he was felling like the season-opening D.C. arc checked off that box. And now…? “It still feels like [D.C.] filled the bill,” he says — though the writers have yet to really hash out February’s episodes. “I’m not ruling it out,” Marlowe allows, “but ‘Im not ruling it in.”
Alice Clark is late for her speaking engagement. Her assistant, Kyle, keeps trying to reach her on her phone. Sadly, she can’t answer her phone, because she’s sitting in her car, dead. One of the paramedics from Third Watch silences her phone and pulls out a knife.
Meanwhile, Beckett is super creeped out by the giant framed photo of Linus the Lion in Castle’s bedroom. Castle senses that Beckett wants him to get rid of Linus, but she suggests that the picture just be moved to a different room. As they head to the crime scene, he tries to convince her why Linus should stay in his bedroom, which is his lair. Beckett says that’s fine, she can just stay at her place.
Ryan directs Beckett and Castle to Alice’s car, which has been torn apart. Lanie informs them that the seats were ripped open after Alice was killed. But whatever they were looking for wasn’t her wallet, phone, keys, or the $10,000 found in her purse. Unfortunately, there are no security cameras in the garage, but they are pulling tape from the other cameras in the building. As Alice’s phone goes off, Ryan tells them that it’s some sort of reminder alarm that has been going off every few minutes. The screen reads NF1945. They hope that Kyle can tell Esposito what it means.
Kyle lets Esposito into Alice’s office, which looks like a hurricane hit it. Nothing of value seems to be missing, but apparently whoever it was went through all of her detailed notes from her client files. Ryan shows them security footage of the building, which shows a man going to her office, but he hides his face from the cameras.
