Castle: After Hours

In the aftermath of a disastrous "Meet the Parents" dinner, a bickering Castle and Beckett are sent to retrieve the only witness to a murder. But when they get ambushed, they're forced to take the witness on the run. Stranded in the middle of the night in a bad part of town, with no phone, badge or gun, Castle and Beckett must find a way to protect him from a team of mobsters who want him silenced -- that is, if they don't kill each other first.

A man arrives in an empty warehouse with a rosary in hand and announces his arrival. A gun appears from the dark and fires at the man. At home, there is a family dinner where Kate and her father Jim have joined Martha and Castle. Martha has baked and just when the dinner is about to begin, Martha and Jim have a disagreement about baseball.
