Wendy Dupree, murdered in a cheap motel, wrote a clue in her blood. When Castle realizes it's no word but a number, it leads, in combination with her phone records, to a storage compartment, about to be auctioned, rented by her brother Wendell, an ex-con, who died in a suspicious accident a few months earlier. He was employed as driver by socialite Anjelica Henley, who recently reported a super-valuable diamond, stolen in a robbery, focus of further criminal intrigues. The earlier past provides the crucial clues, while Castle and his mother worry about Alexis's impending moving out to a dorm, albeit in New York.

When Beckett and Castle arrive at the crime scene, Wendy's body is lying on the floor with her eyes open. Later, back at the precinct, when Beckett shows the photo of Wendy's body to Joel Pratt (the owner of Joel's Cheesesteaks), her eyes are closed. See more
Okay, one last box and I'm ready for college.
Sweetheart, this is a lot of stuff. You do realize you don't have to take all of this stuff with you to your dorm room. Like this, what is this?
Remember? I wanted to ride my bike without training wheels. Like the big kids, and I did. So you got me my very own gold medal.
Oh. Well, honey, that is, that's a very sweet memory, but... your dorm room is only so big. You're gonna have to leave some of this stuff behind.
