FLASHBACK FRIDAY: BECKETT’S FIRST “DIVORCE”

We all remember the travesty that was Rogan O’Leary causing the ruination of Kate’s marriage dream of one and done.  But do you remember the first time she demanded a dissolution of marriage?

Yup, right in the middle of the case of the woman murdered and encased within a freezer and buried in a storage warehouse.  She is discovered when the rent for the unit went into arrears.  

.

Castle makes the observation that stepping through the murder scene might unveil a working theory of the murder.

Needless to say, the new resident is less than thrilled to see our dynamic duo again, especially once he realizes they wanted full access to the apartment.  Good thing he is a tidy person ready for company!

Castle chooses to spin a yarn of disbelief, dragging Beckett along for the ride.  Here is the interchange between the two:

(ROGER stands in the middle of his living room. BECKETT and CASTLE are examining the apartment.)

ROGER:  They told me he was shot in a mugging. And now you’re telling me, he was killed here, in my apartment?

CASTLE:  Not him. His wife.

ROGER:  His wife? What kind of family was this?

CASTLE:  All right. So, you and I are married.

BECKETT:  We are not married.

CASTLE:  Relax. It’s just pretend.

BECKETT:  I don’t want to pretend.

CASTLE:  Scared you’ll like it?

BECKETT:  Okay. If we’re married, I want a divorce.

ROGER:  Are you two like this all the time?

CASTLE/BECKETT:  Yes.

CASTLE:  All right. We’re not married

Of course, their mind meld brings them to the same conclusion, she was kept in the tub of the hallway bath away from the children until the freezer was delivered.

But at the end of the day, Beckett still asked for a divorce that Castle relented to (sort of 😄) okay, okay, I’m doing a Castle with the actual facts!

So sit back, relax, and enjoy the full scene from the wonderful folks at YouTube!
