Rick took a trip to Montreal on Castle Season 7 Episode 2.
But it wasn’t to drink, gamble or visit any strip club. No, really!
Instead, the trip was based entirely on Rick’s strange journey, as documented throughout Castle Season 7 Episode 1. He put up a $250,000 reward for any kind of help in figuring out what happened to him.
This led to newlyweds saying they saw in in the background of a honeymoon photo, which was snapped outside a Montreal bank. Moreover, Rick is speaking with that sketchy dude played by Matt Letscher in the picture.
Alexis suggested that the “38” key found in the lining of Castle’s pants could be for a safe deposit box in the Montreal bank. And she was right!
Inside this box, she and her dad found envelopes addressed by Rick to Beckett, Martha and Alexis, each containing a memory card. WTH?!?
Returning to Kate Beckett at the precinct, Castle used the memory card and took note of video. It featured him looking rather distraught, saying: "If you’re seeing this, I’m probably dead…. I never intended to leave you on our wedding day, it wasn’t my choice… Just know that I love you… Always."
Tory confirms that the video was shot inside a building in Montreal, so that’s where Rick heads (alone, seeing as Beckett has a case to attend to). Once there, he runs into Not Henry Jenkins. Holding a gun, of course.
“You weren’t supposed to come back, ever,” the man says to Castle. “You can’t be doing this, asking questions and offering rewards… or you’re going to find out the truth. And you said you didn’t want to remember."
Rick contends this never happened, of course, but the man then shares a very personal story, one Rick told him weeks ago specifically in case the man needed to prove to Castle that they really did share some kind of bond.
“Some mysteries aren’t meant to be solved,” the man warns. “Forget this ever happened. It’s what you wanted.”
Back at home, Beckett assures Castle she isn’t going anywhere, but she also says they need some "distance" from this incident before they can officially move on with their lives.
So they’ll delay their wedding for a month or so. You know, until November Sweeps.
A couple quick romance notes:
- Esposito and Lanie are back together… to the point that she makes a “sexy,” personalized ring tones on his cell phone.
- Martha met a man during grief counseling. So she tells her son if can just “play dead” for a bit, that’d be super duper. Thanks!
So, are you digging this mystery? Are you sad we won’t be seeing a Caskett wedding any time too soon? Did you somehow miss the installment?
