Castle Season 4 Episode 4: 'Kick The Ballistics' Recap 10/11/11

Castle is back tonight with a brand new adventure!  Stay tuned as we recap the show LIVE!  From ABC’s official summary for this episode: While investigating the mysterious shooting death of a young woman, Castle and Beckett face a cop’s worst nightmare when they discover that the gun used in the killing is Det. Ryan’s old service weapon – the one that was stolen by the serial killer, 3XK. Now with the clock ticking, the team must work to solve the murder, track down 3XK and retrieve Ryan’s gun before the killer strikes again.

Official Recap:  Rick is asking Kate if she remembers anything about the day she got shot, but she says it’s a blank. They’re investigating a victim who was shot with a 9mm gun. Rick says it looks like a mob hit. (She was shot execution style and buried in cement.) Victim is Jane Herzfeld. Ryan has the bullets in ballistics and Esposito is looking for the next of kin. The victim was tutoring other students, but she canceled that morning. The victim was clutching a cross necklace and it appears that she knew her killer.

Kate and Rick are asking her mother about her death. They told her about the traces of cocaine on her body. She claimed Jane had a boyfriend she didn’t like, Finn McQueen and he works in construction.

Ryan and Esposito are asking Finn questions and Kate received a call about the ballistics on the gun. The bullett is from a Glock 17 that was in their system. It’s a match to Ryan’s old service weapon.
