Detective Javier Esposito is known for thorough investigations on Castle, but in an upcoming episode, he’s takes it to the next level — by helping a murder suspect!

In Season 5, Episode 12, “Under the Influence,” the team investigates the case of a murdered DJ. According to E! News, their list of suspects includes “Regina Cane, a fading pop star desperate to stay in the spotlight; an image-conscious rapper named Bone Thug; and an orphaned 14-year-old street kid with a growing rap sheet.”

But is Javier helping someone get away with murder? Not so fast!

Since Esposito didn’t have the easiest upbringing, he simply takes a “special interest in helping out the troubled teen.” Hopefully, the young man’s name will be cleared and Javi won’t run into any trouble with Castle and Beckett!

Are you surprised that Esposito is helping out a suspect? Weigh in below.
