Season 2, episode 22; “Food to Die For.”
A top New York chef of reality television fame is found dead on the floor of his resturaunt kitchen. His body has been completely frozen in liquid nitrogen.
Tug on the hand and it literally shatters and breaks into a bunch of glass-like pieces. Now that’s a pretty cool crime scene.
Castle: “How’s our corpsicle?”
Coroner: “Thawing nicely. In spite of the obvious challenges, I found enough unaffected tissue to narrow time of death to between 2 and 4 am.”
This was a pretty cool episode overall. My favorite part was when Castle was at home in his kitchen dropping every piece of fruit in sight into a bowl of liquid nitrogen and then dropping it to smash into a million pieces on the floor. Again. And again. And again.
Then, he accidentally dropped a watch into the mixture.
“Hey, I just froze time.”
Ha ha. Funny, Castle. Funny.
