Juror #7 Joe McUsic, who runs a halfway house, drops dead of cyanide-poisoning during Otis Williams's high-profile trial for the murder of heiress Lyla Addison. Juror #4 Tony Mueller runs as he believed Otis's cousin, Wardell, poisoned Joe and he'd be next. Wardell claims he is being framed just as the cops are trying to frame Otis. The cyanide came not from the court house vending machine coffee but was released from a capsule. The plot thickens when it was found that Joe McUsic used a bribe to be put into the jury pool. The case is complicated as there doesn't appear to be any link between Joe McUsic, Otis Williams or Lyla Addison. Written by KGF Vissers

I think it was a typical "Castle" case with twists
6 October 2011 | by roni_argSee all my reviews

I liked this episode. I do not live in the US and I'm not American, and I don't think the racial types were exaggerated in this ep. or anything. There are black and white people involved in the case (the accused is a black man) but I was not looking into discrimination issues and therefore I did not find any.

I think this was a nice Castle ep. The plot is triggered by a murder that Castle and Beckett investigate, with the help of the awesomes Ryan and Esposito. They find twists along their investigation that bring them back and forth among several apparent suspects until they find the guilty one, which for me was unexpected. The guy here that said the show is predictable and boring, well, he must be a psychic, you should try Medium! For me it was the pretty usual "Castle", great performances and chemistry from all the actors, good dialogs, twists and quality.
