castle rewatch ~ 1x07: home is where the heart stops

Joanne, listen to me. You’re going to want to play out every possible scenario in the next couple of days. If only you’d been there. If only you’d come by. If only you didn’t work late. And I’m telling you, it’s not your fault. The ones to blame are the monsters that murdered your mom. This isn’t a speech. It’s not a platitude. It’s a promise.
           I am going to do everything in my power to make sure that they pay for what they did.
