In the recording of Bracken that Montgomery left for Beckett, the conversation is exclusively between Montgomery and Bracken. But as established in Castle: Knockout, Montgomery was only a rookie during the Joe Pulgatti/Bob Armen incident; it seems unlikely that two veterans like Raglan and McCallister would choose a new guy to speak for them, especially to the ADA who's been blackmailing them about the crime for which he not only has the ability to prosecute them at any time he chooses, but is heard saying outright he's more than willing to do so.

I rolled my eyes at the start
19 August 2016 | by richard_bownes-99613See all my reviews

Castle is at it's best when you can't take it seriously. Season 1 was only okay, 2 a little better, 3 was more enjoyable and then the incredibly serious 4th series was dull. By this point, Beckett, easily the most annoying character on the programme(Seriously, you people who praise her, what show do you watch?) and her main story arc were incredibly boring and ridiculously far-fetched. It had dragged on way too long and was just ridiculously far-fetched.

Then there was a little bit about it in Series 5 which turned into a decent episode.

Then we got the incredibly predictable Lazarus episode where, if you didn't know it was about her mother early on, you may as well not bother watching TV.

The moment I saw the intro to this episode, everyone in my house rolled there eyes and thought "not again".

Turning it off was the best thing I did
