Re: Castle: Season 3 (Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic) - Discussion & Spoi
Montgomery can't be the big bad. He's not that powerful. It'd have to be a crime lord or someone high up in political office.
I would not rule out Montgomery so quickly.
From what we know so far, 3 cops (Raglan, McCallister and an unknown) is involved 19 years ago with kidnapping Mafiaso for ransom. That third unknown cop, now rich from the ransom money and a few smart investments over the past 19 years, can afford to hire assassins to cover up his past crimes.
So far out of everyone we know on Castle, both Montgomery and possibly the Mayor fits the bill. Personally, I feel Montgomery has that "omgicantbelieveitshim!" shock factor.
Then again, McCallister said Beckette has "woken the dragon". Montgomery doesn't fit the profile of a dragon. So very likely, that third unknown cop could be a totally unknown third party.
Wow, I wrote this 5 months ago and I can't believe how close I was to the identity of the 3rd cop! So it was indeed Montgomery, except that he had to give away the ransom money to the "big bad".
The only remaining suspect is the Mayor, so I'm placing my bet on him!
