Rick informed his wife about the murder case by telling her that a body has been found in Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
The episode also featured the headquarters of the Greatest Detective Society. Rick met with Mason and his team in the GDS’ secret hideout, where they perused on the piece of paper which contained clues to the murder case.
While Castle was in LA, Kate, Jon Huertas’ Esposito, and Seamus Dever’s Ryan stayed behind in New York’s 12th precinct. Hayley, played by Toks Olagundoye, joined Rick in LA during the episode to help him out with the murder case as she also interacted with Frost.
In episode 13, Hayley saved Rick and Kate from being killed with the help of Molly Quinn’s Alexis. The former MPS cop was able to find the couple’s location before a man could shoot them.
Also during the 13th episode, entitled “And Justice for All,” a night-time zookeeper and an ESL student were found dead in a pit of poisonous snakes.
The situation prompted Castle, who was suffering from writer’s block then, to ask Beckett for help. Castle then goes undercover as an ESL student to get information on the case. Beckett’s team also found out that one of the victims was not as purely as innocent as he seemed to be.
