Ryan: “I just always thought that you and I would have kids together.”
Esposito: “Really? You talk to Jenny about that?”

It’s a little strange watching Beckett take on a federal case. On the one hand, it’s a nice change from the body an episode, but it doesn’t really feel like “Castle.” This episode deals with the secretary of defense, terrorists, and classified missions. It’s all very high profile, but that aspect doesn’t come across. However, the scene at the end where Beckett can’t grasp that Secretary Reed isn’t going to be reprimanded is a nice touch. This is the one moment where it really seems to hit Beckett that her job change means that the way she does things has to change. She isn’t always going to be able to put the bad guy away. It would be great to see her continue to struggle with this. How big of an issue do you think it is for Beckett that Reed is just going to get away with this?
Let’s look at the case a little bit closer, shall we? It’s pretty obvious that Valkyrie is the servant girl. As soon as the guy shares his what he saw that night, it is clear that she isn’t just some servant girl. Honestly, it is a little annoying that Beckett, McCord and company don’t even consider this. When it is revealed on the recording, everyone acts like this is a complete shock. Why else would Jack Bronson remove the body of a servant girl from a house? It’s a little annoying. The writers try to give viewers a taste of the team dynamic that they have been missing since Beckett is no longer with the NYPD. There’s no replacement for Ryan and Esposito, but the scene with Castle explaining how to search for Valkyrie with a redacted statement is really cool. What did you think of the case?
Here are some quick thoughts on elsewhere in the episode. It is great to see Martha go to Ryan and Esposito for help. Not only does it allow them to grace our screens, but it speaks to the relationship she has with them. Pi still serves no purpose. He is simply there to annoy Castle and everyone else. The writers really need to work on showing him and Alexis together if they plan on keeping Pi around. Does anyone like him? The most heartbreaking scene of the episode is Castle talking to Martha and Alexis on the phone. It is beautifully done. Did anyone else tear up?
