Castle wants to crack a code involving chess pieces to determine where Tracy was to meet Blakely. Beckett is more interested in solving the murders. This leads to the two of them working separately. Don’t worry. It doesn’t last. Thanks to Martha, Castle realizes the chess clue has nothing to do with the game. He still needs help deciphering it. Beckett suggests he contact Sophia. Castle says, “She isn’t my partner. You are.” Nice.
Castle and Beckett work in perfect harmony to determine that Blakely was to meet Tracy at the Brooklyn Bridge Park. They decide to keep her date. Beckett questions Castle about how close he was with Sophia during the stakeout. Blakely arrives before she can get an answer. The formerly-deceased professor wants to be taken to Pier 32. When they get there, he’ll tell them what they want to know about Pandora.
Blakely says the Pandora paper he wrote detailed a linchpin that was tied to the economy. It would cause a crisis that would bring about the end of the country as they know it. Blakely bolts from the car before revealing any real details. BANG! The professor is gunned down by an unseen sniper.
CRASH! A black truck with tinted windows slams into the back of the car. It guns the gas pushing Castle and Beckett towards the edge of the pier. SPLASH! The car goes head first into the water with Castle and Beckett trapped inside. Better hold your breath. This one’s TO BE CONTINUED.
