Summary: A gloved hand dials 911 but no words are spoken. The mystery caller places the phone near a running shower where a dead man is sprawled in his tub. The victim is Ted Rollins—a 20-year-old record store worker was shot twice in the chest. Castle finds a laptop hidden in the floorboards. The…
Richard Castle: As soon as the Kingfish network goes online, I log in, I download the list.
Jackson Hunt: You don't just log in, you gotta be first.
Richard Castle: Right.
Martha Rodgers: But why does he have to be first?
Richard Castle: It locks out the Iranians from downloading the list.
Kate Beckett: Right. And while Castle's downloading, I'll track the signal using the WiFi analyzer on my phone.
Martha Rodgers: You can find a spy on your phone?
Richard Castle: Mother, there's an app for everything now.
Lanie Parish: No, but I did check his stomach contents, and I can tell you this: approximately fifteen minutes before his death, Ted ate clams and funnel cake. Can you believe that? Ugh.
Kate Beckett: Lanie, you slice open dead people for a living, and you're grossed out by that?
Lanie Parish: Even I have my limits.
- Goof (factual errors): Cashiers' checks are not *totally* untraceable, as is stated. They always have information about the originating bank, if not also the branch of the bank. Visiting that bank may lead to documentation used to issue the check (a letter of authorization, surveillance video, etc.).
- Goof (continuity error): After Castle's dad is shot he shows up on his son's doorstep seeking help. While Martha and Rick tend to the wounded person lying on the bed, the wet stains on the pillow change in form and size a few times between shots.
- Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): When Castle is confronted by the spy in the library the spy pulls a gun out from under his coat. The sound of a the gun being loaded can be heard (racking the slide) when the gun is pulled out. The gun clearly was not loaded therefore would not have made the sound.
- SPOILER: At the end of the episode, Castle decides to cancel an upcoming book tour so that he and Beckett can get married in September. This is roughly when the fall television season begins, with the implication that the wedding would be held in the seventh season premiere.
- Castle initially tells Becket they can't get married in September because he has to travel that month. The only days he would be available that month would be on Mondays. The series airs on Monday nights in North America.
