MONDAY MUSINGS: WHAT’S UP WIT DAT?

I got four to ponder today as we scan the CASTLE universe to nitpick useless minutia to share and discuss. So here they are, random particles of subplots that for some reason I find intriguing.

ADVANCED COPY

This one got to me. Let me get this straight, in the Pilot, FLOWERS FOR YOUR GRAVE, as a peace offering, Castle gives Beckett a signed advance copy of STORM FALL,

But yet, when she took offense that the Cosmo reporter got an advanced copy but she, Beckett, did not, as Castle never thought to give her one, saying they were like crazy hard to get his hands on because of Gina. So how did he get the Storm book?

BACKUP PIECE

At the end of A DEADLY AFFAIR, Roy tells Beckett that she can tell him how Castle got her back up piece tomorrow.

But Roy HAD to know that Castle blew off Scott Dunn’s hand with Beckett’s backup piece, right? I mean they had to file a report about it I would think?

FBI JURISDICTION

In season 1, we are introduced to Will Sorenson, FBI special agent in charge on kidnappings. So here we are told he is in charge because abductions fall to the Feds…

So, why then, wasn’t the Feds called in when 12 year old Tyler Donegal got snagged? Was he too old?

ALEXANDER

The psychic’s daughter mentioned that someone named Alexander would be important to Kate, Castle mentions that his given middle name is Alexander but later legally changed to Edgar. So….

Could it be she really was ‘seeing’ this guy as Beckett’s Alexander?
