Richard Castle: I am so sorry for everything I put you through.
Kate Beckett: It's not your fault, you know. You went through stuff, too, so...
Richard Castle: Well, it's not the same. I can't remember. Though I do know I missed you terribly, because there's no way I wouldn't. We can't just, um... pick up where we left off, can we? As if nothing happened?
Kate Beckett: No.
Richard Castle: We'll get there. We'll find our way home.
Kate Beckett: Espo, what are we doing back here?
Javier Esposito: I want to show you something.
Kate Beckett: What is that?
Javier Esposito: The rifle, that shot you.
Kate Beckett: You are way out of line.
Javier Esposito: Just look at it.
Kate Beckett: What the hell are you doing?
Javier Esposito: I've been where you are, I know what you're going through.
Kate Beckett: Javi, I'm fine.
Javier Esposito: You're not fine. You're just trying to act like you are. This is just a tool... It's a hunk of steel. It has no magical powers, and the person that fired it is not some all-powerful God. Just a guy with a gun. Just like the guy we're hunting now. And like every other bad guy, he's damaged goods.
Kate Beckett: So am I.
Javier Esposito: That's right. And that's okay. You think it's a weakness? Make it a strength. It's a part of you... So use it.
