By the end of the hour, the viewers and audiences learned that Beckett had disappeared after a mysterious phone call from an analyst in the Attorney General’s office named Vikram Singh (Sunkrish Bala), and that all of this somehow has to do with Beckett’s old job at the Attorney General’s office, and that it just might have something to do with Beckett’s old nemesis, Senator William Bracken (Jack Coleman).
A promotional video released on Spoiler TV for the upcoming episode shows Beckett visiting Bracken at prison, where he told her that she was currently in over her head.
Her flight with Vikram was also shown, while in another scene, Castle confided to his daughter that he doesn’t know if he could trust her wholeheartedly ever again, as she had deliberately kept secrets from him. However, Alexis counseled him that it would be better for him not to think that way.
Meanwhile, TV Guide’s promotional video hit long-time “Castle” fans hard with a surprising revelation.
The clip shows Beckett in the hallway of an apartment. He is running out with Vikram down a trapdoor in a bid to escape the second squad of hit men that were lying in wait for them. However, in the end, they were saved by a mysterious woman, who then later on introduced herself as Rita (Ann Cusack), Castle’s stepmother.
Another promotional video, which was released on Spoiler TV, shows Beckett and Vikram with Castle.
However, Castle put Beckett aside and told her that he couldn’t believe that she had lied to him. She then explained that she had done everything in her power to keep him safe. The phone call the other morning from Vikram had contained a high priority distress signal, which had caused her to go on the run.
She also then reminded him that she had felt extremely worried about his disappearance for eight weeks last year. It means that its Castle’s turn to feel the after effects of Beckett’s trust issues with him, which, earlier last year, stemmed from his disappearance and his inability to figure out what had happened for majority of his disappearance.
