Beckett, Castle, Hayley, and Vikram use the information Caleb Brown provided to set up an ambush for LokSat - but end up sitting ducks themselves. Once they escape, it becomes more and more difficult to figure out which clues are reliable, which are fabricated, and whom they can trust.

==Trivia==
+
* After eight seasons and 173 episodes, Crossfire was the last episode of Castle. With the cast at the end of their one-year contracts for season 8, negotiations had been under way for a short  season 9 in which, it emerged, Beckett would not appear as a character. However, on 12 May 2016, ABC announced officially that the show would be cancelled.
+

+
* Crossfire had originally been intended as a season rather than series finale, but an alternative ending was shot during filming in case negotiations for a new season broke down. In the event, the cancellation was announced only four days before the episode aired, but it aired with the alternative ending: a flash-forward epilogue seven years into the future that showed Castle and Beckett at home in the loft with their three children.
+
* At the start of the epilogue voiceover, Castle says: 'Every writer needs an inspiration, and I found mine': a line from the pre-credit introduction sequence that appeared at the beginning of episodes in season 2.
