One night she gets in contact with the man she shouldn't have contact with, and before she knows it she's agreed to meet him. She doesn't tell anyone because if the word would get out someone might take the girl away from her. Her detective instincts kicks in and she can't help but question why Alexis was taken from her dad. That's when she can't shake the feeling that mr Castle is falsely accused for whatever it might be and decides to try and find out more. Not knowing it would lead back to her own past. And there was nothing she wanted to get away from more than the hell she had gone through. I DO NOT OWN THESE CHARACTERS, ALL RIGHTS TO ABC'S CASTLE!
