Re: Castle - Season 6 Discussion & Spoilers

After seeing last week's episode I went "It's 3XK".

Nice to see Castle predictability is still around.

Great episode, loved the song at the end "We will meet again". All that means is that he is not dead.

And I'd like to thank all the Canadians that used spoilers for the day!

Re: Castle - Season 6 Discussion & Spoilers

How about the idea of serial killers working together... That's creepy. Perhaps there is a serial killer network, and they just pulled all the police files and evidence that the NYPD had on them. Who knows how many times they could have done this technique and where before, or again.

Re: Castle - Season 6 Discussion & Spoilers

Good episode, and thanks bigdaddy for mentioning 3XK. For the life of me, I can NEVER get that name right; I always want to go with 3BK or 3XL. What does 3XK stand for again? Next week's episode looks lame...

Re: Castle - Season 6 Discussion & Spoilers

I couldn't either. I typed that right after Castle said it in the episode. I call him "Guy Castle shot off bridge".

Re: Castle - Season 6 Discussion & Spoilers

I think the "X" is meant as a multiplication symbol — he kills in groups of three, and is also referred to as the "Triple Killer". I can't remember if they called him that in last night's episode, but certainly in previous seasons they used both nicknames.

Re: Castle - Season 6 Discussion & Spoilers

Yeah, I figured out early on that it was 3XK, and I felt the cops were a bit slow to catch on that the whole thing was orchestrated to lead them along a path and that any given clue they were handed should be mistrusted. I mean, the recovered photo from the first victim led them right to the second victim, the connection they found led them to the plastic surgeon, her testimony about when Santos left her office led to the traffic photo that connected to William Mapother's character, etc.

And that was the reason for the tattoo. It was part of the manipulation. No, it wasn't needed for the imposture and the theft, but that's exactly why it was done: to divert them from thinking that there was a practical reason for the impostures and rattle them into thinking it was something more personal and creepy, something directly targeted at them. Classic misdirection. That's probably also why the killer chose Lainie and Esposito as the targets -- because that seeded the false trail that it had something to do with their relationship. (Although I guess it could've been just that they were the only ones the killer was able to find doubles for. I was starting to think, "How many of these guys have doppelgangers working in the sex industry?")

What's interesting about the ending is that it's ambiguous whether Tyson is actually alive or if the plastic surgeon is merely taking over the 3XK mantle now that he's gone. Taking his police records could itself be misdirection to make them think he's still alive.

Yeah, but in this case I think they were counting on that reaction, since he was the red herring. Yes, he did the murders, but on instructions from the plastic surgeon, who may or may not have been working with 3XK.

He killed 3 women in a week then moved on to a new city and killed another 3 in a week. I guess 3XK is short for 3 kills per week.

^Yup -- as stated above, "3X" as in "three times," aka "triple," so 3XK is shorthand for "Triple Killer."

Re: Castle - Season 6 Discussion & Spoilers

It's great that they have that kind of continuity, but I really can't remember the 3XK stuff from past episodes. Bones did the same thing with their serial killer nemesis, and by the time he pops up again, I've forgotten who the hell he was. Ah, age, you're such a drag.

Re: Castle - Season 6 Discussion & Spoilers

Too bad that in CastleLand, photocopies and computer backups don't exist, and everything is stored in one place. Left them really open to this heist!

Come on, that plot point is retarded. They have have some of the original stuff, but no way it's not backed up, and if it wasn't active, would it even be local to that precinct? Why wouldn't FBI have either the original or backups, he IS a serial killer, and worked in places other than NYC. Kate doesn't have dibs...

Re: Castle - Season 6 Discussion & Spoilers

They mentioned the electronic files were wiped too, but you're probably right about backups. Then again, he IS the Ultimate Clever Nemesis.
