SummaryEdit

In the powerful conclusion of a two-episode story arc, when the FBI fails to get his daughter back, Castle takes matters into his own hands, reaching out to a shadowy fixer to help him recover Alexis. But Castle soon learns that his daughter's kidnapping may be part of an even more sinister agenda. Emmy and Golden Globe-winner James Brolin ("The West Wing," "Marcus Welby, M.D.") guest stars in the episode as Castle's dad.

QuotesEdit

Martha: Don't lie to me, Richard. Beckett's here, your passport is gone. Now what the hell do you think you're doing?
Castle: Getting my daughter back.
Ryan: What? So he's Liam Neeson now?
Esposito: Liam Neeson? The dude's barely Ashley Judd.
Beckett: He's acting like father and...I have to act like a cop.
Beckett: Do you have any idea what this is all about?! You think I'm some beat cop busting you on possession charges?! My partner's daughter is missing and you... are in my way. Now, you don't talk to cops? I'm not a cop today, honey.
Castle (after his phone gets shot to pieces): What are you doing?! That was a 200 dollar phone!
Jackson Hunt: That's how they track you. Now get in the car.
Castle: Hey, I'm not getting in the car!
Hunt: Don't be an idiot, I'm the good guy.
Castle: Oh, you expect me to trust you.
Hunt: Well, you're alive, aren't you? What are you gonna do; stay out here in the woods with all the dead guys?
Castle: Fine. I'll get in the car.
Hunt: : Given that you're feeling so bad about your 200-buck phone, you might wanna pick up that 3 million dollar briefcase ...take it with you.
Castle:: At least tell me your name.
Hunt: Hunt, Jackson Hunt.
Castle: Sounds made up.
Hunt: It is.
Castle: Why?! Why would you come for her?
Hunt: Because she's my granddaughter. Richard, I'm your father.
Hunt: You're not gonna kill my son, Volkov.
Volkov: No? And why is that?
Hunt: Because you'll be dead.

TriviaEdit

  • When Castle was ten, his mother Martha took him to the library and while there, a stranger handed him the book Casino Royale (the first James Bond book ever written by Ian Fleming) and this was the book that made him want to be a writer (it is also revealed in this episode that the stranger was his dad).
  • Castle being inspired to become a writer from 'James Bond' was first confirmed in When the Bough Breaks.
  • Castle's dad sent him a copy of Casino Royale to confirm that he's still alive.
  • Castle's dad is a spy for CIA and goes under the made-up name of Jackson Hunt in this episode.
  • Castle's dad has been following Richard, Martha and Alexis from a distance, checking in on them.
  • Alexis was abducted as a means for revenge on "Jackson Hunt" - she was the main target all along.
  • Castle is good for at least 3 million in a rush.
  • Watch For: Beckett's reaction when it becomes evident that Alexis isn't being released with the other girl (she, like Castle previously, is now imagining the worst--that the kidnappers may now decide that Alexis is expendable).
  • Castle's father reveals that he's responsible for Castle's access to the CIA years ago. This was hinted at by Sophia Turner in Linchpin.
  • In Little Girl Lost Castle says he didn't know what he would do if Alexis were ever kidnapped. Now he does.
  • The "Liam Neeson" comment is a shout-out to the film "Taken"..
