Fool Me Once - S2-E4

Trivia: Firefly reference. In that show, two agents were sent to capture the character River Tam. The agents wore blue surgical gloves and were foreshadowed by River prophetically muttering "two by two, hands of blue." In this Castle episode, after putting on blue gloves ("hands of blue") , Castle holds up two fingers on each hand one after the other ("two by two") then opens his hands.

The Late Shaft - S2-E20

Trivia: After learning a murdered television host was planning on changing his show-ending signature line, Castle suggests to Beckett that they should have a signature line of their own, and suggests "A whole new chapter in crime solving." This is actually the tag line on the season 1 DVD set. The other line Castle suggests, "She's armed, he's dangerous", became the tag line on the season 2 DVD set.

Overkill - S2-E23

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.
