1:05 am
well... (blows air) (doorbell rings) someone order food? no. no. i better check this out. (laser fires) hi? (beep) hi. who is it? detective beckett. darling, are we entertaining? um... dad. yeah? manners. (chuckles) right. (imitates gunshot) come on in, please, why don't you? welcome... you bet. you, um, you remember my mother martha. oh. and alexis, of course. hi. yes. hello. (sighs) can i... make you a drink? (laser fires) wow. i feel like... alfred in the batcave for the first time.
1:06 am
similar origin stories? loss of a loved one leads to a life of fighting crime. yes, well, you are the multimillionaire crime fighter. yeah. that's, uh, where i outline my books. that's funny. looks a lot like our... (beeps) murder board. yeah, except mine's fake. i can't find it. find what? the answer. it was sam. everything fits. it's a good ending. yeah, but without proof, it's just a theory. and that family-- those kids-- they need more than just a theory. they need to know. i need to know. well, you have an ending.
1:07 am
you just have to put it all together with the facts at hand. the facts? fact--they had two small children. so? based on police statements, they didn't have a babysitter. with him at work, she would've had to have been with the kids the day she disappeared. but sam said that she left later that night. which the doorman was never able to corroborate. so if she was there and she never left, then-- then she was murdered in the apartment. yeah. he didn't own a car. so what is a good husband to do living in manhattan with his wife's body? he can't leave it in the apartment. he can't walk out the lobby with it. so the only question is... how did he get the body to the storage unit? he... hey, could--no. uh... n--
1:08 am
ine does something, i will walk the crime scene. this one time, i was trying to figure out how to throw someone off the empire state building, and that movie "sleepless in seattle" had just come out. oh, so many lonely women approached me, thinking i was their tom hanks. i got la-- castle. the point is, you want to get into a killer's head, go to where the killer was and see what problems he had to face. field trip? they told me he was shot in a mugging, here in my apartment? not him. his wife. his wife? what kind of family was this? all right. so you and i are married. we are not married. relax. it's just pretend. i don't want to pretend. scared you'll like it? okay, if we're married, i want a divorce. are you two like this all the time? yes. yes. all right, we're not married, but they were. let's say the doorman's right. melanie gets home about 4:00.
1:09 am
ours. around 6:00. figure the kids have already eaten. so they're, what, um... watching tv in the bedroom. in my bedroom? shh. we're on a roll. they have a fight. about the affair. about philadelphia. things get heated. and she turns her head-- he whacks her with something. a pot. or a pan. bam. fractures her skull. it's over. except the kids are still in the bedroom. he's got to figure out a way of getting her out of the apartment without them seeing. he needed to buy time. okay, so he, um... he puts the body in the tub, closes the door... wait! and tells the kids that mom went to the store. which, according to the case file, the doorman was never able to substantiate. okay, so no car. how does he get the body out of the apartment? maybe he hailed a cab. yeah, maybe the cabbie and the doorman helped him stuff the body in the trunk. how much do you tip for that these days? the doorman.
1:10 am
when he took it out of the apartment? freezer? he'd have needed a truck. in my building, if you have something picked up or delivered, you have to sign for it. yeah, here, too. a delivery that big, you have to sign the ledger. the ledger? the doorman's ledger downstairs. (woman) yeah, that's my name. (sighs) i know it was five years ago, mrs. marsh, but the only delivery that day at all about the delivery... i-i remember i had to go downstairs and sort everything out. what do you mean "sort everything out"? i told the doorman i never ordered a freezer. but the guy brought it on up. he loaded it on the freight elevator while i was talking to the doorman. so what happened when you were downstairs? (sighs) i told the doorman they got the wrong apartment again. and then by the time i got back upstairs, the guy was gone.
1:11 am
i don't know his name, but i told him everything, same as you. (castle) i don't get it. if sloan had that woman's report, why didn't he just follow up? he wasn't looking for the story. he'd already written it. (castle) that's the same kind of truck we saw outside charles wyler's store. he must have a contract with them. if you wanted some help with some heavy lifting, who would you call? your best friend. i had so many thoughts once i left the hospital after a dvt blood clot. what about my wife... ...what we're building together... ...and could this happen again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? i spoke to my doctor and she told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again.
1:12 am
significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... ...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless you doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. when l'oreal asked me what i wanted my skin to be... i said bright, smooth, you know, with a little glow. new bright reveal from l'oreal. with glycolic acid...
1:13 am
y reduces wrinkles. reveals brighter, younger-looking skin in just one week. one week? you can do it. new bright reveal from l'oreal skin expert/paris. beautiful skin at every age. because you're worth it. think your heartburn pill works fast? take the zantac it challenge! zantac works in as little as 30 minutes. nexium can take 24 hours. when heartburn strikes, take zantac for faster relief than take the zantac it challenge. if you have allergy congestion, muddling through your morning is nothing new... ? ? introducing rhinocort? allergy spray.
1:14 am
t. ? ? try rhinocort? allergy spray. muddle no more?. of the delivery truck to you, mr. wyler. if you want, i can bring the lady you delivered the freezer to in to identify you. look, i had nothing to do with what happened to melanie. you lied about everything else. why not about this? i never had any reason to hurt her. but sam did, right? i mean, she kept going back to her ex-boyfriend. how much can a guy take? (sighs) he called me that night. he needed me to come over right away. when i got there, the kids were asleep, and melanie was in the tub... in a garment bag. he said she came at him, and he just snapped. here's an idea-- instead of killing her, why not just get a divorce? you don't think i know how wrong this was? why did you take the risk? why did you move that body?
1:15 am
so you arranged for the truck. he said it could never be traced back to him. that's why we sent the freezer to the old lady, that's why i rented out the storage space-- because we knew the cops would look at sam. you made the payments? sam couldn't take any chances. he'd give me the cash, and i'd... stop by twice a year. for five years. it seemed a lot easier than moving her. look, i'm truly sorry about what happened to melanie. but what was i supposed to do, keep paying for the rest of my life? the d.a. will make sure of that, mr. wyler. (door opens) (retreating footsteps) her body gets dumped because this guy wyl didn't pay a bill?
1:16 am
there were people who knew the truth all along. they just chose not to come forward. still, karma comes back and puts a cap in her husband's ass. so all is right with the world. (police radio chatter) i'm gonna go talk to melanie's parents, let 'em know how this all shook out. you wanna come? the woman with the freezer delivery he didn't feel that it was important. after all, he didn't believe he was looking at a murder. right, so if you're not investigating a murder, why would you talk to the neighbor about a freezer delivery? (sighs) this must be some freezer. you mentioned a police officer, mrs. marsh. i know it's been five years, but do you-- i never said it was five years ago.
1:17 am
about a freezer i never ordered? do you remember anything about the man who came to see you? uh, he was older. uniform? no. plainclothes like you. he had gray hair, and he walked with a limp. ben davidson. melanie's dad. the captain's happy. those kids look pretty happy. that's the difference between a novel and the real world, castle. a cop doesn't get to decide how the story ends.
1:18 am
(door opens) detective beckett. sir, i'm gonna have to take you with me down to the station. who is it, honey?
1:19 am
1:20 am
1:21 am

1:22 am
that you both apparently did-- that melanie never left her apartment alive. mrs. marsh's answers merely confirmed what i already knew. that your son-in-law was a killer. (castle) if you had figured out what sam had done, why not just go to the police? he would've gone to prison for the rest of his life. if he'd been convicted. they didn't have a-a body at the time, remember? his lawyers would've put melanie on trial, not him. well, you can certainly understand how a father might want to, how he might follow his daughter's murderer one dark night when he was sure no other people would be around, how he might confront him with a gun he'd brought back from the war,
1:23 am
be overcome with rage. every time he brought the girls to see us, i watched a little piece of my wife die. a visit from your grandkids should be life-affirming, not a reminder of how your only child was murdered. i never said i killed him. i said a father might be justified. the police told me sam was shot in a robbery, and without evidence, there'd be little chance that his killer would ever be brought to justice.
1:24 am
and i'd like to see a-a lawyer if i could. (police radio chatter) no, sweetie, i just wanted to make sure i said good night. you got it. strawberry happy face pancakes on me. mwah. later. exis missed me. how did you know? spidey sense. hmm. by the way, it was my mother, not my father. we were supposed to go to dinner together-- my mom, my dad and i-- and she was gonna meet us at the restaurant, but she never showed.
1:25 am
for us. detective raglin. they found her body. she had been stabbed. a robbery? no. she still had her money and purse and jewelry. and it wasn't a sexual assault, either. ted it to gang violence. random wayward event. so just like in melanie's case, they couldn't think outside the box. so they just tried to package it up nicely, and the killer was never caught. why do you wear the watch?
1:26 am
five years. so... this is for the life that i saved, and... this is for the life that i lost. so... i guess your nikki heat has a backstory now, castle. ... i did kinda like the hooker-by-day, cop-by-night thing. but, uh... i guess a heavy emotional angle could work, too. well... don't bewilder your audiences with substance on my account, castle. until tomorrow, detective. (keys jangle) you can't just say "night"?
1:27 am
yeah, well... i'm a cop. night. night. (joshua radin's "no envy no fear" playing) ? few are there ? ? want to reign from a hero's chair ? ? some are scared to fly so high ? hi, dad. ? well, this is how we have to try ? ? have no envy and no fear ?
1:28 am
remember, this never happened. i was never here. you have my word. thanks. mm-hmm. (clears throat) if you tell her i did this, i will make you bleed. understood. good luck. ? the place we used to call our home ? ? so have no envy ? ? and no fear ? ? have no envy ?
