Continuity mistake: After Beckett gets back from her assassination assignment, she washes up in a bathroom and places the gun she was given in her front waistband near her stomach. Then she goes to meet Lazarus (Vulcan Simmons) in the basement, who realizes she's Beckett. When she pulls out the gun, she reaches behind her back to get it. (00:27:25 - 00:31:00)
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.Cubs Fan
Continuity mistake: When Lanie arrives at the precinct to check on the baby, her shirt is tucked into her jeans, as seen when she bends over to pick the baby up. When the shot changes to behind Lanie, her shirt is untucked, and then when the shot changes to the front of Lanie, her shirt is tucked in again.
Continuity mistake: In the flashback of Beckett and Montgomery, when Montgomery finds her in the archive room studying her mother's murder case, Beckett says that she was unable to find any leads worth following. But in season three, when Montgomery explains to Castle that that encounter was when he first met Kate, he says "she found some things that didn't add up", suggesting that she did find a clue worth investigating.Cubs Fan
Plot hole: On the recording that Captain Montgomery left for Beckett, the conversation is exclusively between Montgomery and Bracken. But as established in "Knockout", Montgomery was only a rookie during the Bob Armen incident; as two veterans who are more than capable of speaking up for themselves, it seems unlikely that Raglan and McCallister would choose a newbie as their voice, particularly to the assistant D.A who's blackmailing them.Cubs Fan
