Castle and Beckett fully enjoy conjugal life again. The team investigates the murder of a man who was digging in Turkey for what seems to be Aladdin's lamp and smuggled it home to Manhattan. Castle speculates the person who keeps crossing his path seems the magical ghost while they find the secretive accomplice murdered, too.
Did You Know?
When Castle recaps "1001 Arabian Nights" for Esposito, Ryan, and Lanie, Lanie comments "It's a story about a misogynistic serial killer?". Nathan Fillion
actually played a misogynistic serial killer, the priest Caleb, in the last five episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer
(1997). See more
The "seal of Solomon", as presented on the cover of the "1001 Arabian Nights" book displayed on Beckett's computer, has Hebrew text surrounding the seal, but while Hebrew is written from right to left, the text around the seal can only be read from left to right - like in English. Its not that the text is mirrored, it is just written using normal characters but in the wrong direction. Also the Hebrew text is nonsensical and sounds like a bad machine translation of something like "in your life you will never have your equal among kings". See more
