The murder investigation that started it all!

Although Castle manages to escape Tisdale with a swift move of his own and admits that the safety was on the gun the whole time, we can give Beckett credit for trying to talk Tisdale down, keeping him distracted so that Castle could even make his move, and of course, making a conscious effort to save Castle’s life.
