In the end scene at the loft when the song was playing and it referred to seeing them again when the ‘sun is shining’ all I could think of was Beckett and Castle on their honeymoon. Remember the remark made by Beckett while getting out of car when they arrived at the crime scene and she mentioned wanting a warm location. That would be the perfect place for 3XK or Nieman to pop up again.
Users can no longer edit comments; more new technology at work?
One continuity issue that bothered me about the episode was that when Beckett and Castle were at the surgeon office it would have been daytime, but that is when Kate talks to Ryan on the phone, but he is at the docks in the dark. I watched the show live and noticed it right away which just bugs me because I initially thought I missed something.
nottrampis. Agree. Viewers didn’t really learn anything new or significant about Lanie, other than that she has a 2-drink maximum. Likewise, we didn’t learn anything new about Esposito, or his relationship with Lanie, at least, nothing other than what we could’ve already guessed. I find it really hard to buy into the “Esplanie” thing any longer. I think it’s sort of over. I don’t feel that chemistry between them any longer and I haven’t for a long time. It has been basically absent on the show for a while now.
I watched the opening dock scene again and you are correct about those Lanie comments. However, the guard actions at the dock crime scene in the beginning and his statement during the end interrogation make no sense if he was the actual killer. The victim was left hanging from that beam for hours. It would have taken time to position her body on the beam hanging that way in such an open area. It presents that somebody would have noticed him working with the body at some point. The open dock scene was creepy for sure, but somewhat contrived to fit the plot. It felt like they were almost trying a little too hard to be creepy at times. I think more understated moments might have worked better. IMO
Homeless guy must be 3XK. When Matthews was confessing to killing the look-a-likes, he made a point to mention the woman's feet scraping the dock, but in opening crime scene at the dock Lanie said she was dead before being strung up. However, Beckett never brought that up as a way to discredit Matthews' confession during the end interrogation.

Agree that 3XK must be taken out first. In a later episode, her reaction to the soundtrack will be explained. Castle was clearly affected by her reaction. They will come together on a plan to find him. Recall the late conversation with Beckett and Gates. Gates tells Kate she will need concrete proof before coming forward with a formal claim that Tyson is still alive.
Being the 'Disciple' explains his behavior in the opening scene where he approached the female victim asking for a response. He clearly acted surprised at her condition. Otherwise, his actions at that point make no sense at all.
I enjoyed the episode, but please no more look-a-likes. Viewers don’t want SK or NF to be playing other versions of their characters. I hope Marlowe attempts to be original with the wedding and actually lets it go ahead without too many convoluted hitches. The weekly promos are really becoming overblown. I am reminded of going to a movie where I hear nothing but rave reviews about it beforehand only to be disappointed with the outcome. For example, this episode was billed as Lanie-centric. However, we didn’t learn anything new of any real significance about her. If the idea was to flesh out her character and back story at the same time, that didn’t happen. In her media interviews, she considered this episode as great writing for her character and she was excited about the episode. She clearly has low expectations, but she must be really grateful for the job. Standard police procedures went out the window during this episode. That was a major security breach at the precinct with that many boxes and case files going missing even if the records room personnel thought it was the real person doing it. Nobody asked Esposito the purpose of the records release or where are all those files were going? After the plastic surgeon interrogation, Kate did not think to order 24/7 surveillance on the business given her shaky alibi? I don’t think Matthews actually killed the look-a-likes after all. His comment to Castle and Beckett as they are leaving the interrogation room that "You have no idea what is really going on. You think you do. But you don't" was a hint to the viewer that Matthews was taking the fall for 3XK (or Niemen) for the murders because he was the ‘Disciple’.
