The episode begins with Castle telling Kate that he wants to eat something sweet and by “sweet” he means her. Kate quickly changes the subject and tells him that he was sleep talking last night and he mentioned the name Jordan, fourteen times. Castle tells her that the name means nothing to him.

Lanie tells them that the victim was shot at the back and then fell into the mixer. She also says that before he was shot, he did struggle with his attacker and she has found some fibers caught up in the victim’s watch. ..
