Trivia: Castle's Halloween costume is of Malcolm Reynolds, played by Nathan Fillion in the short-lived TV show "Firefly." Alexis asks him: "Didn't you wear that like five years ago?" Serenity, the film based on Firefly, was released 5 years before this episode aired.Cubs Fan
Trivia: In this episode, Castle says the words "My partner is crazy and may start firing at any moment" in Chinese. Beckett then asks him "Semester abroad?", to which he replies "Nah, a TV show I used to love". This is a reference to Firefly, a TV show starring Nathan Fillion in which characters occasionally spoke in Chinese.THGhost
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.Cubs Fan
Trivia: Near the end of the episode, while dancing at the school dance, Beckett and Castle decide on Andrew Belle's "In My Veins" as 'their song' for the wedding. The same song plays under the end of "Always", the season 4 finale, when Beckett admits to Castle her feelings for him and they consummate their relationship.Cubs Fan
Trivia: Throughout the episode, it's heavily implied, short of mentioned outright, that Castle is being considered to write a new James Bond novel. Stana Katic is actually a Bond girl, having had a small role as a Canadian intelligence officer in 'Quantum of Solace'.Cubs Fan
Trivia: As a tie-in to the series, shortly after it premiered, ABC began publishing Castle's Nikki Heat books, ghostwritten by a real author and credited to Castle. In 'Heat Rises', a murder victim is mentioned as having owned a copy of the movie 'Air Force One', which was written by "Castle" creator Andrew Marlowe.Cubs Fan
Trivia: While trying to prove 3XK framed him for murder, Castle identifies "Joseph Vacher", an alias Tyson used, as a serial killer from 19th century France. Active from 1894 to 1897, Vacher murdered and mutilated at least eleven people, and was often compared to Jack the Ripper.Cubs Fan
Trivia: Just before Beckett shows up at the loft to admit her feelings for Castle, he ignores an incoming phone call from her. The picture of her on his phone screen is the same picture of her on his digital murder board about her shooting. Not necessarily a goof, since he could simply like that picture of her, but interesting to notice.Cubs Fan
Trivia: When Ryan and Esposito go to where the victim worked, the guy that talks to them was on an episode of the short TV series Moonlight where he played a guy that was stalking a girl after his death. He even tells Ryan that if he changes his mind, he'll give him some hair gel and fangs; the guy was turned into a vampire before his execution.
Trivia: At 39:08 the stock footage of NYC looking south-southwest over Central Park was taken pre-2003, probably pre-2001: the Time-Warner Center is not yet constructed, and that building was topped out in 2003, which was years before "Castle" is supposed to have taken place.
