"Esposito" is a very common Italian surname. Our Espo doesn't seem to be even the tiniest bit Italian. Do we blame this on his absentee father, who may have gifted him with the name and little else? Or do we suspect that the creative team can't tell one ethnic group from another?

In season 5's "Recoil", Beckett let's a man who was planning on assassinating Bracken, the man who murdered Beckett's mother, run free. Some scenes later Bracken approaches Beckett about this. ''How did Bracken even find out about this?'' When Beckett let the would-be killer escape, there was nobody around to witness that, and the only person Beckett told of this incident was Castle, and it's doubtful Castle would have blabbed such a thing to Bracken, so how did he even learn of this?

** In purely practical terms, Stana Katic is at least 6 inches shorter than Nathan Fillion, and the characters they play would not be well served if she were always looking up at him. That's not the kind of relationship they have. She needs to be able to look him in the eye. Better for on-camera kissing too. ** {{Lampshaded}} in season 3 "Under the Gun" and season 7 "Dead From New York".

**Maybe she does? We don't see every detail of their lives (in fact we don't even see Castle getting paid for them, it's just given he makes a lot considering how much he regularly spends and that they said to be best sellers), so any payment/royalties/consulting fee/etc that she gets will be paid off screen and Becket doesn't seem the type to make a big fuss. Alternatively, maybe Castle/his publisher doesn't pay her but the NYPD does in the form of extra pay for having to put up with him (or considering Castle himself is probably classed as a consultant for the NYPD, maybe he waives his consulting fee and has them pay it to Beckect, Ryan and Espo (who should probably also get some sort of payment as they also work with Castle and iirc it's mentioned have minor characters based on them.)). Besides, considering [[spoiler: they get married in season six, it becomes a moot point as unless they decide to keep their finances strictly seperate (although considering Castle's spending habits that might not be entirely a bad idea) she'll be getting a share of the profits anyway.]]

* Exactly how much money has Castle made from the Nikki Heat books? Shouldn't his "muse" be getting some of that, or at least a consulting fee? Especially since he really can't say that "any resemblance to any person living or dead is purely coincidental".

***There is a huge difference between getting a suspect to incriminate themselves by lying that they have a witness or video of them committing the crime, and using fear to extract confessions. If real US police officers did what they did in these two instances -at the very least they would get fired and lawsuits filed against the city and people involved, charges relating to assault, abuse of authority and torture would be quite possible.

** And most of the other characters weren't really dismissing his feelings, their comments more being along the lines of "if you say this/continue acting this way, Alexis will get really angry and that may cause irreparable harm to your relationship". Doesn't mean they don't think his position is unjustified (hell, Ryan's comment would seem to indicate that he agrees with Castle).

** He does like playing games with other people through fake IDs; my guess is copious amounts of identity theft, killing people and taking over their identities and their personal finances, etc.

* How is a petty crook/serial killer wealthy enough to enact all these vast conspiracies and pay people hundreds of thousands of dollars to get Lanie and Espo impersonators?

** Montgomery actually asks how Castle got Becket's Gun in a tone which clearly implies someone should be in trouble but then shrugs it off and covers for the pair.

Even if the DA was really hard-nosed and humorless, the negative publicity would end the DA's career. Most likely the shooting ''did'' go through channels and the DA declined. We don't see it on screen because bureaucrats shuffling papers aren't fun to watch.
