The Ryan Report—Episode 416 "Linchpin"
Castle and Beckett are smart, I'll give them that. But they underestimated the keen powers of observation and the analytical mind of yours truly, Detective Kevin Ryan. They've been working on a secret project for the chief of detectives, and they wanted to keep it secret. Unfortunately for them, that's pretty hard to do when I'm on the case. All I had to do was drink 12 lattes and stare at the murder board for 16 hours straight - then it just fell into place.
(By the way, if you are reading this, consider yourself lucky. The government will probably shut down this site right after I post this because I've uncovered something that the powers that be don't want you to know about.)
Let me start with what we knew about the case: Thomas Gage used us to access information on a woman named Tracy McGrath - a researcher with a PhD in Applied Mathematics. After this Castle and Beckett had us look into a man named Nelson Blakely, who is this genius professor. This then led us to a guy named Janacek Spivey, a brilliant economist. So you've got these three geniuses and you mix that in with Castle and Becket getting their car rammed into the Hudson and a bunch of people getting shot in the head and it's obvious what happened:
The government has been biologically engineering super soldiers. I know - it sounded crazy to me at first too, but at about my 37th hour without sleep, I saw clearly that it was the only possible explanation.
See if you can follow me here - Nelson Blakely apparently died ten years ago. However, his body just turned up, freshly killed. So clearly, what happened, is that he was in a government program with Tracy McGrath and Janacek Spivey, but he wanted to be the only one, so he faked his death until such a time when he could take out the other geniuses and with them gone, he could take over the world.
Now, I know what you're thinking - "Don't Super Soldier programs create strong people?" The answer is not necessarily. This was a Super Solder program for the mind. That is why Blakely had to hire Thomas Gage to kill Tracy McGrath - he needed the muscle. But then Janacek Spivey caught wind of this, and used his super soldier intelligence to turn Thomas Gage against Blakely. Then he and Gage planned to take over the world instead, until Becket and Castle and their secret CIA/NSA/FBI team stopped them. With the help of myself and Detective Esposito of course.
I understand why they would want to keep this a secret, I do. But they underestimated me. When most people's brains shut down, and they start coming up with crazy theories, I just hit this groove and become incredibly brilliant.
The real shame is, that none of you are going to be able to read this. The government will surely clamp down on me for releasing their secrets and close down this post. So, really, I can say whatever I want. "Hey, Espo, guess what! I'm the one whose been stealing your vanilla wafers out of the break room. And guess what - they were delicious!!"
Well, it's been about 40 hours since I've slept, now, and I've sustained myself mainly on espresso and red vines, so I am going to sign off.
Man, I think I'm going to be really proud of this post when I wake up in the morning.
