Then it learned Brave Bird. Talonflame usually helps Ash to find certain things, together with Noivern. Its moves are Flame Charge, Brave Bird, and Steel Wing.
Episode 01: XY
MOLLY: So it's not X and Y as a whole, it's one tiny piece. So back in the first episode, there were those primordial germ cells. And they had to go on that super long journey to get to the gonad cathedral. And on the journey, when they got to the cathedral they were full of potential, right? They could be anything. They could be male, they could be female, they could be whatever your version of anything is. And then when they get there, there's a moment where, like we said, fate stepped in and just -- whoosh! -- like, swept all their possibility away and said, "You are one thing, and this is the thing you will be," This gene is fate. This gene these scientists discovered, if it shows up then you shoot off down the path that is sperm, testis, male. And if it doesn't show up, you shoot down the path of egg, ovary, female. And the scientists gave this gene a name, SRY.
MOLLY: So I called Blanche Capel, who's the geneticist from our first episode. And she explained that what all this means is that that other path, the path that you did not take in the gonad cathedral, it never went away. It's actually still there. You carry it with you always. It's just that that gene has been shushing it.
MOLLY: This is ridiculous. The third episode is basically about how we all carry in us, like, the opposite self that we never became. So -- so I called Mom because I was like, "What would male Molly have been like? Like, did you guys have, like, a name for male Molly?"

The first part is titled "XY." In this episode told from Castle's lens, Beckett is officially installed as the captain of the 12th precinct.

This episode will also be used to "redefine a few things" in the new season as Beckett takes on the role of captain: Castle's daughter Alexis sharing the same office with them and the whereabouts of Victoria Gates, who Beckett succeeds as captain.
