Castle season 6 episode 22 is titled ‘Veritas’, a Latin word to describe a legendary tragedy. What happened to our parents? Still more tragic if we are talking about a mother died in violent circumstances. Could we avoid her death? Children always feel guilty. It is an unconscious guilt, and when they are adult, they try to solve old mysteries. Why? Maybe to move forward, maybe we cannot go ahead without closing old wounds.
In Castle season 6 episode 22, Veritas, Detective Kate Beckett faces her mother’s killer…, again!
If you think about it, it’s truly tragic. Kate is about to marry the love of her life, and raise a family in a house with flowers. She will be happy for sure. But the past pursues her, because the past always haunts us.
The corrupt senator Bracken killed her mother to hide incriminating evidence. She knows it but still no evidence. And in previous episodes, we have seen that whoever tries to help is also assassinated. The bad guys are winning!
Richard Castle just wants to protect his lovely girlfriend Kate, but she doesn’t want be protected. She’s a strong woman and wants the truth… The truth! Veritas in Latin. A nice word that can cost many sacrifices.
In Castle season 6 episode 22, Kate will be drugged, tied up and severely beaten on the head. Furthermore, and what is worse, she will be discredited and accused of murder. She has to run away, hide, suffer … Then she will remember the truth, her veritas!
