New this month Other mistake: At some point during filming, Stana Katic injured her right hand. At episode's end, when Beckett hugs Esposito and Ryan after they're rescued, her index and middle fingers are taped together, and the injury doesn't appear in any other scene.
New this month Revealing mistake: After Castle and Beckett are arrested for interfering in Chief Brady's investigation, a deputy tells them that Brady wants to speak to them; Beckett stands up to leave the holding cell, but is held back by the pair of handcuffs chaining her to the bench. The cuff is not actually on Stana Katic's wrist; she's just holding it in her hand.
New this month Plot hole: Beckett is framed for the murder of Vulcan Simmons by someone (likely connected to Senator Bracken) who has access to her backup weapon locked in a safe in her apartment. It's never really proven that she's innocent; the murder weapon is never recovered, and the real murderer is never brought to justice. And though she's still technically a murder suspect, Beckett is allowed - after finding the evidence for which she's been searching - to act in her law enforcement capacity and arrest Senator Bracken.
Plot hole: Beckett and Castle lose their cell phones and wallets and are being chased by the mob. Beckett steals a cell phone from a car but can't use it, since it is locked and then shut off remotely. Any cell phone can always dial 911, whether locked or blocked from service.
Continuity mistake: When Beckett and Castle kiss at his party at the end of the episode, the camera is behind Castle, and Beckett's head is leaning toward her left shoulder. When the shot switches to behind Beckett, her head is leaning to the right. Then it switches back to left.
Continuity mistake: Castle and Beckett are talking about the case in the precinct and his coffee runs out. Beckett offers to go refill the mug. She grabs his white mug in her right hand. In the next shot, it is now in her left hand. A blue mug is in her right hand instead.
Continuity mistake: When Beckett, Esposito and Ryan interview the fruit stand vendor, he states that he saw a bronze Mercedes drive by, to which Esposito replies, "That's Castle's car." In the previous scene at the car crash site, Ryan asks Esposito to check the back corner of the car for damage, which is silver or gray, not bronze, in color.
