Beckett worries that the room full of detectives she works with will figure out she and Castle are together. That’s why she tries on several different outfits for her first day back on the job. Castle doesn’t mind. He totally digs watching her undress. Beckett orders him to act normal. Castle fails this assignment miserably when he shows up at a murder scene without a coffee for her since he knew she already had one. Oops!
Mandy Michaels, the weather girl for WHNY, is found shot to death behind an outdoor fountain. A still-feuding Esposito and Ryan track the victim’s stolen phone to a guy who has a history of stalking, but he’s no killer. A threatening note is found in Mandy’s wallet. It reads: “If any of this gets out I’ll kill you.” Lanie says the killer tried to make things look like a mugging. She also deduces that Beckett is having sex judging by her glow. She just doesn’t know the mystery man is our favorite mystery man.
Castle and Beckett check things out at WHNY. They learn Mandy had a scuffle with the new meteorologist, Rebecca Fog. Yes, that’s her real name. Rebecca thinks Mandy was a lazy, entitled, big-boobed bimbo who was ticked because her coworker stole a bunch of her meteorology equipment. She alibis out for the murder. While still at the station, sexy entertainment reporter Kristina Coterra ropes Castle into doing a TV interview at a later date. Beckett suspects this lady is looking for some exclusive close-ups outside the studio, too.
