Dressed To Kill[3] is the fourteenth episode of the sixth season of Castle.


When the assistant to Modern Fashion Magazine’s dictatorial editor Matilda King (guest star Frances Fisher) is found murdered, Castle and Beckett are thrust into the glitzy, ruthless world of high fashion in their search for the killer. Meanwhile Beckett’s history in the modelling world gets her access to a very special wedding surprise.

Castle: Seriously, you've never heard of Matilda King?
Esposito: I'm betting that most real men haven't.
Castle: Ooh! I just came up with a new title. "Murder Is the New Black."
Beckett: Does that even make sense?
Ryan: No, it doesn't.
Ryan: I always thought the fashion industry seemed glamorous. Turns out mobsters are more ethical.
Beckett: Oh my gosh, why do you think I quit? I'll take murderers over models any day!

Featured Music


  • During the episode, Beckett does a favor for Matilda King, a fashion mogul, and models a wedding dress for her when her original model can't do it. Matilda is impressed by Beckett in the dress, telling her she'll make a beautiful bride someday and if she had a daughter she'd like for her to look like Beckett did in the dress. Rather than putting the dress in her magazine, Matilda later sends it to Beckett with a note saying it looks better on Beckett than it ever could on the pages of a magazine.
    • Beckett reveals that she worked as a fashion model for a while before becoming a police officer. She had worked for Modern Fashion, which states her brief summer modeling job in Inventing the Girl.
  • Castle and Beckett decided to have their spring wedding instead.
  • When Beckett starts modeling in a wedding dress, she starts thinking about her mother and wishes she was there.
