Based on descriptions from both Ryan and the Congressman of a radical blogger (Charlie Hofheimer) fleeing the scene, the NYPD is able identify the likely shooter although Ryan channels his inner Castle (Nathan Fillion) and believes there’s far more to the story and the blogger, despite his motive and actions, is nothing more than the perfect fall guy for the crime.

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a jealous Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) but that’s just what “Hong Kong Hustle” delivers when Beckett crosses paths with the impressive Inspector Zhang (Linda Park) while investigating a homicide in Central Park. Initially a suspect, who makes Ryan (Seamus Dever) and Esposito (Jon Huertas) look foolish with very little effort, once her identity is confirmed Zhang joins the official investigation into the death of her oldest friend who got himself in over his head.

Forced to play Tyson’s game, which includes a staged murder of someone made to look like Beckett, Castle (Nathan Fillion) throws all caution to the wind attacking the man the NYPD can’t positively identify as 3XK and later putting his life on the line by knowingly playing right into Tyson’s hands.

castle-resurrection

The murder of a young blonde woman in an alley raises red flags for Lanie (Tamala Jones) who quickly makes a connection to the victims of Dr. Kelly Nieman (Annie Wersching). Given his understanding of the case Captain Gates (Penny Johnson) is able to convince the D.A. to allow Castle (Nathan Fillion) to consult on the latest murder which not only turns up Nieman working at a practice in New York City but a man bearing a striking resemblance to Jerry Tyson (Michael Mosley) as well. With the physical evidence of Tyson’s crimes missing or destroyed, and no physical evidence connecting either of them to the current murder investigation, Beckett (Stana Katic) is fighting the clock to prove that the man before them is Jerry Tyson and responsible for yet another murder.

castle-i-witness

For the second time in the series history the show casts Castle (Nathan Fillion) as a witness to a murder without any evidence (like say a body) to back-up his story. In true Rear Window style, the previous episode centered around an elaborate play set-up for an injured Castle’s benefit. Here the private investigator is hired by an old friend whose murder he witnesses… although even he begins to doubt just what exactly he saw.

Unable to work the case of the murdered private school educator together, the pair each follow their own leads only to have Castle continually beating Beckett, Esposito (Jon Huertas), and Ryan (Seamus Dever) on uncovering what the woman was up to in the days before her death and how her murder ties back to 15 year-old death on a college campus.

An investigation into the murder of a government investigator leads Esposito (Jon Huertas) to be taken hostage in a subway car with more than a dozen other hostages by a cyber activist whose motives, including plans to target a group of one-percenters and demand the release of his incarcerated girlfriend, seem more about buying time than getting the demands actually met. Through a hidden surveillance camera the 12th Precinct can observe events on the subway car while Castle (Nathan Fillion), Beckett (Stana Katic), and Ryan (Seamus Dever) race to find answers as to what is really going on.
