For Better or Worse - S6-E23

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, the Mercedes S class that is burning is not the same car that Castle drove previously in the episode, it's an older model one. Either it's a mistake or has to do something with the plot resolution, decide yourselves...

Continuity mistake: After Special Agent Shaw tells Beckett to go home when they believe a murder took place in a multi-story car park, Beckett touches her hair with her right hand.

A Rose for Everafter - S2-E12

Plot hole: The security camera images of Castle kissing Kyra on the roof are completely inexplicable. The angle at which the images are taken are near enough identical to the angles at which the rooftop scene were shot. There were no pillars, poles or high walls for a security camera to be attached to at those particular angles, and certainly nowhere a photographer could hide, so where did the images come from?

THGhost

Room 147 - S6-E16

Plot hole: All three murder suspects claim to have seen a picture above the fridge of the hotel room. This picture however is only in the hotel room where the actual murder happened, not in the room that is shown in the video, so they couldn't have seen it.

Tanngrisnir

A Rose for Everafter - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: When Kyra introduces Greg to Castle, Greg takes Kyra away to greet the new arriving guests. He places his left hand on her right shoulder twice between shots.

THGhost

Under Fire - S6-E11

Other mistake: At some point during filming, Stana Katic injured her right hand. At episode's end, when Beckett hugs Esposito and Ryan after they're rescued, her index and middle fingers are taped together, and the injury doesn't appear in any other scene. (00:41:00)

Revealing mistake: After Castle and Beckett are arrested for interfering in Chief Brady's investigation, a deputy tells them that Brady wants to speak to them; Beckett stands up to leave the holding cell, but is held back by the pair of handcuffs chaining her to the bench.
