Javier Esposito: Victim's name is Sarah Cutler. Looks like she was killed last night and stuffed into a closet on set.
Kate Beckett: Was she a part of the production?
Javier Esposito: Yeah.
Richard Castle: Let me guess, the diva actress that everyone hated?
Javier Esposito: Actually, Castle, she was a writer.
Richard Castle: A writer? Why would anyone want to kill a writer?
Kate Beckett: Oh, so many reasons.
Kevin Ryan: When I started in Narcotics, I was so green. I-I didn't know how things got done. One day, there's this major bust; street gang cooking meth. They're stacking up guys in the bullpen, taking their statements one by one. The place is a zoo. I'm answering phones in the squad. Girl on the line, name of Alisha, asking for my lieutenant. So I call out across the bullpen, "Hey, lieu, Alisha's on the phone for you."
Kevin Ryan: It was her tip that got these guys nailed, and all of them just heard me call out her name. Searched all day and all night, looking for her before the gang could get word back to the street that she was a narc.
Kate Beckett: Well, did you find her?
Kevin Ryan: I did. Got her into witness protection, but... that was the stupidest thing I'd ever done as a cop. Until the day Jerry Tyson got the drop on me and stole my weapon.
