The team doesn’t believe Dale is the shooter. The killer must have been in the apartment before the couple arrived home and then patiently waited long enough to frame Dale. Prints of Dale’s bandmate, Mitch, are found under the bed. The team swarms on the rehearsal space once again. And, once again, Beckett is staring down the barrel of gun. She’s afraid, but Castle talks her through the fear. Beckett orders Mitch to drop his gun, which he does. As for Beckett, her hands aren’t trembling one bit as she slaps the cuffs on a killer.
Back at home, Castle and Alexis have a heart-to-heart. He explains that he needs to be there for Beckett and she tells her dad not to grow up too much. He won’t. But he also won’t ever stop trying find out who hired the sniper to shoot Beckett, as evidenced by the persons of interest chart he’s been secretly keeping.
