Series 2 - Episode 24: A Deadly Game

Episode 24: A Deadly Game

Sorry, this episode is no longer available to watch on Demand 5.

Find out why

While running for his life through the park at night, a man sees a payphone and makes a call. “This is Blackbird. Identification?” says the voice on the other end. “Designate 2-2-3. I am blown. I am blown… Where is the safe house?” says the caller. “Negative 2-2-3, you know the rules,” says the voice. Tearing back through the park, he is stopped in his tracks by a man with a flashlight, who brandishes a gun with a silencer and shoots the man dead.

The victim’s wallet provides no help to identify him – his gym membership is for a gym that doesn’t exist and his company, Fastwater Global Services, are registered to a PO Box in the Cayman Islands. His hire car is found to contain an automatic weapon, five thousand euros and a pen, which self-destructs after it relays a message about the details of a meeting. “Well now we know why our victim doesn’t exist,” says Beckett, “he’s a spy.”

At the meeting point specified in the pen message, after making a fool of himself with the only single woman in the joint, Castle makes contact with a Hans Brauer, who eventually cracks and tells the detectives he is just taking part in a ‘spy-cation’, in which ordinary people get to live out their James Bond-style fantasies.

Who had it in for the victim? How well does Castle take the news that Beckett and Denning are ’together’? And does she agree with Castle that this should be the last case they work on?

    I know what you mean, I started watching Castle on five, so have stuck with it because of that. Alibi shows it on Sky, and they are way in front so there would be no point me watching it now as I'm still waiting on season 3. I'm disappointed how badly Channel 5 treat it though, imo it's as good as The Mentalist, NCIS, Body Of Proof etc but they all get treated much better, and are showen more often. I'm not on Twitter but it would be good if someone who was could keep asking about it on their and i'll keep mentioning it on Facebook, then we could give updates on here, if there is any news. Sadly I think we'll have to wait until the awful Big Brother is over before they think about putting it back, a long wait.

    Thanks for the info Castle fan, great to know it's coming back. I know it's way behind the US but some of us like to get our TV legally without paying Sky for the privilege! Ch5 seem pretty good at answering their twitter account as well so someone might have some luck on there?

    That has actually only changed recently so I'm assuming it is true. They won't answer on here though, but they do answer emails if you contact them on their website. I have asked them about Castles return on Facebook and they said it is definitely coming back, but no dates have been confirmed.

    Channel 5 FAQ states: Series 2 of Castle concluded in December 2012. We hope to screen Series 3 in the autumn, though it is too early to confirm any further details at this time. Is that still true Channel 5? Please bring it back, and treat it better this time!

    Mentalist back in Febuary now, all we need to complete a great friday night is Castle season 3. I noticed this time last year season 2 started. Fingers crossed they have the rights to season 3 and bring it back soon.

    Still no news about Season 3. :( Castle's getting pretty popular in the UK ('Castle' and 'Stana Katic' were even trending in the UK during PCA voting), so it's a shame that Channel 5 aren't doing anything to boost its popularity even more. I mean, I thought it'd be good for its ratings/viewership... Idk.

    Awful news if true,I was hoping season 3 would be back in the spring, along with the mentalist as they always seem to be on together. Don't understand 5's thinking behind this, as it is such a popular show, but if they don't show it again until next year eveyone will get fed up waiting and watch it some other way :(

    Another query here about season 3. Can you please let us know (through twitter or something) if channel 5 has the rights to season 3?

    The loud, intrusive background noise in this programme makes it impossible to hear the dialogue - the bad enunciation of the actors doesn't help either

    ads jammed, it stopped working. If you return when it plays the ads again, it starts at the start of the prog. If you try to fwd to where you were, it jams, or runs more ads then freezes. Gave up. It's an old series anyway. Demand 5 is atrocious.
