Castle - "Target"

Two not-quite Firefly references in tonight's episode. We had a reappearance of the "two by two, hands of blue", but in this case it was Ryan and Esposito in the blue gloves, so I'm not sure it counts.

And the look on Nathan Fillion's face as Castle gets ready to torture the information out of the injured driver was Mal all over.

 At some point I'll get around to updating the other page with last week's reference. Gina Torres appeared in the episode "Reality Star Struck" as Penelope. She also played second-in-command Zoe Washburne on Firefly. I was a little sad she had no scenes with Nathan Fillion. And I didn't spot any direct Firefly references in the episode. Except, perhaps, the flipping of the table as a reference to Zoe's fighting skills, but that's something of a stretch. Did I miss anything?
