Castle: Cops & Robbers

When Castle and Martha are taken hostage by a crew of bank robbers dressed in hospital scrubs and using classic television doctor names (Trapper John M.D., Dr. Huxtable, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman and Dr. Doogie Howser), Beckett finds herself on the outside, desperately trying to rescue them -- which proves to be even more difficult with a by-the-book hostage negotiator (guest star Dean Norris, "Breaking Bad") watching her every move. Castle becomes the de facto leader of the hostages, which includes Barry Livingston ("My Three Sons"), and discovers that the robbery is actually a skillfully orchestrated distraction for an even more sinister plan. But with Castle stuck on the inside and Beckett on the outside, will either be able to foil the bank robbers' plans before it is too late?

The scene opens with Castle and Martha in a bank. Martha is trying to get a loan to cover the damages to her theater, but the bank manager doesn’t want to give it to her. Castle suggests that he give her the money instead, but Martha says that she wants to get this on her own because she is a business woman. Castle calls Beckett up and tells her to tell him that she needs him for something. He watches the bank and sees two people enter the bank in scrubs and masks. He tells Beckett that he thinks that the bank is about to get robbed. Beckett tells Castle that he is over-analyzing it, but suddenly a man enters and tells everyone to get on the ground. Beckett tells Ryan and Esposito to call up SWAT for a bank robbery. She says that Castle is inside the bank. Castle tells Beckett what is happening and says that there are 3 bank robbers. However, another bank robber comes up behind and puts his gun to Castle’s head. Beckett talks to the man and he says that he’d rather make the front page. The cops arrive and the lead bank robber tells everyone to get comfortable...
