The scene opens with A Night of Dance with host Brad Melville. It’s an elimination dance between Santino and Odette. As they are introduced, Santino takes the stage, but a stage hand discovers Odette’s body in her dressing room. Martha is asking a column writer for a mention in her paper for her acting school. Castle doesn’t think it’s a great idea, because she’s been so critical of her in the past. Lanie is at the scene of the crime.
