Zusammenfassung der Episode:
Back outside, Beckett continues to try to calm Alexis, telling her they are doing everything they can. Alexis tells her Martha and Castle are all she has for family and Beckett looks her directly in the eye and promises that they will be alright. A uniformed officer interrupts her, saying they have an incoming call to the mobile command truck. Alexis calls her boyfriend Ashley and leaves a tearful, panicked message on his phone saying she needs him immediately.
Inside the van, Trapper John tells Beckett how Sal had a seizure and that if she sends in one paramedic to get him and has the bus outside in twenty minutes, he’ll release Sal. Beckett tells him she needs more time, but he refuses, threatening to kill hostages if she doesn’t come through. He ends the call and a uniform tells Beckett they need 35 minutes to get the bus. Beckett doubts he’ll agree to give her more time, so Peterson says they’ll storm the bank instead. Beckett disagrees and suggests they send in a cop in paramedic’s clothing to get the lay of the land inside the bank.
Inside the bank, the robbers unbar the door as Beckett, wearing an FDNY paramedic’s uniform pushes a gurney inside. Castle immediately recognizes her, but keeps his cool. As they frisk Beckett, he pulls a deposit slip from a desk and quickly writes out a message about the C4. He crumples it in his palm, places his hand over Sal’s and explains to Beckett what happened to Sal as if she is a paramedic he’s never met. Beckett tells Sal there are people outside who care about him and that they will get him out. As she speaks, she lays her hand over Castle’s and gives him a long look. He realizes her words spoken to Sal were for him. Dr. Huxtable tells them to hurry it up and Beckett and Castle help Sal onto the gurney. As Beckett straps him down, she slips the note from Castle’s palm into her own and pushes Sal towards the bank entrance. She casts another look over her shoulder at Castle, then leaves.
Back outside, real paramedics take care of Sal and Beckett tells Alexis her father is fine. She uncrumples the note and tells Alexis to get back beyond the police line immediately. She hurries off as Alexis’ cell phone rings. It is Ashley, but he tells her he doesn’t have time to talk. She begs him not to hang up, but he does anyway.
(Drehbuchpassage dieser Stelle:)
[Castle turns around. Sal Martino stands up and walks towards Castle, mouth foaming.]
CASTLE: Don't shoot, don't shoot, don't shoot!
[Sal takes off his coat and Castle tries to help him. Sal falls down and starts convulsing as the robbers yell, guns aimed at them.]
CASTLE. Don't shoot. He's having a seizure. Sal! Easy.
[Sal eases and Castle sees a bracelet on Sal's wrist.]
CASTLE: Great. Epilepsy. This guy needs help.
DR. QUINN: Then help him.
CASTLE: Hey, look, Dr. Quinn, the man just had a grand mal seizure. So unless you really are a medicine woman, he needs a hospital now!
DR. QUINN (to Dr. Howser):Get Trapper John. Move!
CASTLE: Perfect. A fake doctor calls in another fake doctor for a consult.
He shows Beckett a picture of him and she recognizes him as Sal, who they took out of the bank and to the hospital. She immediately calls to check on him and is told her checked himself out of the hospital against doctor’s orders. She now knows he faked the seizure and planned the entire the robbery himself.
At the precinct, Esposito tells Beckett and Castle that Ron Brandt runs a company that supplies military contractors to special forces around the world. Castle theorizes he used his contacts to put together the team of bank robbers then rigged the C4 to blow up early to eliminate any loose ends. Castle also realizes Trapper John must have given the photos and letters from the safe deposit box to Ron when he went to the bathroom since he faked the seizure afterward.
