Correction: She was frustrated with the case so of course she wouldn't keep quiet about it and besides, Ryan mentioned that he was talking about a case with his future wife Jenny in "Till Death Do Us Part" and nobody blinked an eye; apparently that was okay. Also Beckett has discussed cases with suspects before so it's not like this was a first for her.

A Deadly Affair - S3-E1

Corrected entry: When Beckett, Castle, and Ryan are discussing the anonymous bank deposits made to the victims, as Ryan is saying "there's no way to trace the payments...", Stana Katic tries to covertly hide a snickering smile. A longer version of the scene had a shot of Castle staring at Beckett while she's bent over writing on the board, she notices and that's what she's smiling at, but without that shot the smile makes no sense.

Correction: She was laughing at Ryan trying to push Castle off the desk. They were still mad at Castle for not calling them and Ryan was expressing that in an immature way. Beckett on the other hand has been known to laugh at these kinds of moments since she is somewhat childish, or at least has a good sense of humor, so that snicker does make sense; she's just reacting to the situation.

Target - S5-E15

Corrected entry: Upon discovering Alexis has been abducted, no one thinks to call her mother Meredith. Even with Castle's dislike of her, surely she deserves the right to know something has happened to her child. And since Castle frequently paints her as an over-the-top drama queen, one would think he would prefer the drama of simply telling her the truth, rather than not telling her and having her find out that he didn't tell her.

Correction: I'm pretty sure Castle was smart and responsible enough to tell Meredith what's going on. Just because we don't see him do it or even bring it does not mean that he never did. Also, she wasn't important to the story, and maybe she was too busy to actually come out. Even if she wasn't, what could she do to help?

Correction: She deliberately calls him "Castle" because he made the kind of statement normally made by Castle. You can tell her meaning from the tone of her voice.

The Limey - S4-E20

Corrected entry: In S04-E09 (Kill Shot) we see Beckett in her bra looking in a mirror at the scar on her chest where she was shot. Yet when she goes undercover in this episode to a cocktail party in a low cut dress, the scar is gone.

Correction: Since the dress was low-cut, it is a possibility that Beckett simply put make-up on to cover the scar. It would stand out at the party so maybe she would've decided to just cover it up.

Flowers for Your Grave - S1-E1

Corrected entry: Halfway through the episode Castle tells Beckett that he got her "an advance copy," but in the opening scenes there is a stack of these available at his book party: these are always for sale and signature by the author, and at shortly afterwards he is actually signing these. Beckett would have known this since she showed up at the party to invite Castle to the station for questioning. (00:01:18 - 00:24:58)


Correction: She was focused on arresting Castle so it is a possibility that she didn't notice, or wasn't paying attention. She only focuses on what matters at the moment, so this makes sense.

Much Ado About Murder - S8-E20

Corrected entry: After learning it's her turn to plan date night with Castle, Beckett confides to Ryan that she's drawing a blank as to outdo what Castle planned the last time and needs help brainstorming ideas. As an intelligent woman who knows Castle as well as she does, and considering that in season five's "The Lives of Others", she came up with, planned out, and executed an elaborate "murder mystery" for him to solve, planning something just as big and embellished, even off the cuff, shouldn't be as difficult for her as it's presented to be.

Correction: Or maybe what she meant was that she was conflicted on how to outdo that stage. She's not stupid.

Cloudy with a Chance of Murder - S5-E2

Corrected entry: During Castle's time with the hot girl from the interview, just before Beckett arrives, he makes a comment saying that he found out who the killer is by something the girl said. Only problem is that he really didn't. When she said, after he asked how one guy got away, she responded with the line "I can assure you, it had nothing to do with me", before opening her dress and straddling Castle. By this time Beckett overhears them and breaks in, meaning that there wasn't enough time for the girl to actually tell him who the guy was. This also wasn't brought up or mentioned earlier, so Castle did not find out who the killer was; there's no way.

Correction: Whether or not Castle was able to simply deduce Haxton was the one man who resisted Coterra or she said it was Haxton, she had plenty of time to say one word before Beckett breaks in. In fact, when Beckett is at Castle' door she hears muffled voices, so there was a lot we didn't hear from the phone call to busting in.


That was Castle trying to get her off. He was resisting her you know. Why would she say "oh, by the way it was Haxton" as she was trying to seduce him?

Overkill - S2-E23

Audio problem: When Demming writes "Stolen books" on the white board and says, "Killed for a fortune in stolen books, so I'll run the work crews and see if anybody has priors", his lips don't match what he's saying at all.

Reality Star Struck - S5-E14

Question: Before this episode, there was a Christmas episode "Secret Santa" and then there was "Significant Others" with Meredith showing up to take care of Alexis. In that episode, Beckett mentions choosing the movie Valentine's Day for a date night, causing her to lose a turn. In this episode, Castle and Beckett are celebrating their first Valentine's Day together. So, are they celebrating Valentine's Day twice? This wasn't too long after the Christmas episode and when Beckett made her movie choice, no snow was on the ground. Is this a mistake or is this really their first Valentine's Day together?

Answer: The networks are now having winter breaks. A mid season end of new episodes, when they come back after the new year, it picks up as if several months have gone by. Beckett suggested Valentine's Day as a "chick flick" to watch as she is moved in. Also some episodes are not scheduled to air in order.
