There’s lots of junk in the storage unit including a porcelain Gemini Collectible figurine. Captain Gates has been searching for one of these for years, so she’s extremely grateful to Castle when he gives it to her. She even starts reading/loving Castle’s books. As for the case, the storage unit belonged to the victim’s twin brother, Wendell, who was killed six weeks ago after being hit by a subway train. Wendy was convinced her brother’s death was no accident.
Wendell worked for a wealthy socialite named Angelica Henley (the “g” is silent). As it turns out, a $4 million bracelet was stolen from this rich lady’s wall safe a few days before Wendell was killed. Castle and Beckett think the bracelet may have been in the storage unit. They believe the mystery bidder at the auction was asked to be a proxy for Wendell’s partner, a guy named Marco Vinstrolli, who broke into the storage unit earlier.
The team tracks down Vinstrolli as he’s trying to crack the safe he took from the storage unit. The guy’s no killer and there’s no bracelet in the safe. This leads the team back to Angelica with the silent “g.” Castle and Beckett do that banter thing they do so well to deduce that the socialite made up the robbery story as part of an insurance fraud scheme. Still, she insists she wasn’t in cahoots with Wendell.
Alexis is nervous about being on her own away from home. She knows that her dad won’t be there in the morning when she wakes up anymore. Castle assures her that he’ll always be there for her regardless of the geography. He even checks under her dorm bed for monsters one last time. It’s a completely moving moment, but Castle holds back the tears until he gets outside. An equally sad Martha promises she’ll continue to live with him, rent free of course, so he’ll never, ever be alone. She’s such a good mom.
