Spoilers: Returns, Guest Stars, and More

Several spoilers have been released about the upcoming episodes when Castle returns.  Check them out.

TVLine revealed from an interview with Andrew Marlowe:

‘Member the Coughing Guy in Hooded Coat that waterfront watchman Carl Matthews (Lost‘s William Mapother) made scram just before he “discovered” Lanie’s dead look-alike? Eagle-eyed/-eared viewers noted that just before Beckett & Co. stormed Carl’s motel room, a Coughing Guy in Hooded Coat crossed in front of the camera. Same guy? “I would say that they bear an uncanny resemblance to each other and seem to be suffering from identical respiratory conditions,” Marlowe notes. “It’s quite the coincidence, don’t you think?” Mmmhmm. Especially since the first fella bears a faint resemblance to Jerry Tyson/portrayer Michael Mosley.

BACK WITH A VENGEANCE? | Having thus teased us with this provocative mystery, can viewers count on Castle revisiting it again before Season 6 is over? Says Marlowe: “I think Vera Lynn said it best when she sang, ‘We’ll meet again. Don’t know where… Don’t know when….’” Ah, speaking of that old-timey tune….

BECKETT HAS A SONG REACTION | Does “We’ll Meet Again” carry any greater significance than suggesting that the Beckett-fetishing Dr. Niemann (played by 24‘s Annie Wersching) and/or Tyson will be back? After all, Beckett’s reaction to the song suddenly filling Castle’s loft was conspicuously strong. Here, Marlowe drops his most curious clue.

“It could be that Beckett is just reacting to the disturbing and terrifying possibility that Tyson or Niemann will be back to toy with her and the people she loves,” he posits. “Or maybe, just maybe, Beckett has a personal history with that particular song that makes her think that it was more than just a general threat. That maybe someone out there knows more about her past than she realizes.”

Castle has cast Titanic star Frances Fisher in a Devil Wears Prada-themed episode that will revisit Kate Beckett's (Stana Katic) past as a model.

"The episode has a little Devil Wears Prada feel to it with an Anna Wintour type character," reveals executive producer Andrew Marlowe, referencing the notorious Vogue editor-in-chief who inspired Meryl Streep's icy Miranda Priestly film character. "In investigating the case, we discover that the Anna Wintour character, Matilda King, who runs this magazine, Modern Fashion, crossed paths with Beckett when she briefly flirted with a career as a model."

Marlowe says he cast Fisher (whose credits include Eureka, The Shield and Touch) in the role because "she brings a regality to everything she does."

The episode is slated to air on Jan. 27.

Keck's Exclusives also revealed several big spoilers.

James Brolin returns as Jackson Hunt, the estranged dad of Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion), on the Jan. 13 episode of ABC's Castle. He meets his son's fiancée, Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), but for most of the episode, she's unaware that the CIA operative is her future father-in-law (he keeps his identity secret to protect his undercover work). "That introduction comes later and is far more awkward," says Fillion.

"[Beckett] has a big question about Jackson's true motives," says Katic. "He's not all that he seems." Blame that on Brolin, who agreed to reprise the role only if Jackson turned darker. "I wanted viewers to find out how deadly he is," Brolin says. "He gets a thrill out of terminating people who deserve it. The thrill is there, with no feeling of remorse." To make matters worse, Jackson "talks down to his son like he's 5 years old," says Brolin, "and is very attracted to Kate. That's the kind of a--hole he is." Hunt also comes face-to-face with Castle's mom, Martha, for the first time since their long-ago tryst.

Ryan's Special Delivery

Mark your calendars for Jan. 6. That's when Det. Kevin Ryan (Seamus Dever) finally becomes a daddy! But the blessed event is not without complications. Ryan's wife, Jenny (played by Dever's real-life wife, Juliana Dever), goes into labor at the same time detectives Ryan and Esposito (Jon Huertas) are trapped in a burning building. "Not only does it look as though Ryan may not be there to watch the birth of his child," says Seamus, "he may not live to see the baby at all." That leaves Lanie (Tamala Jones) and Beckett to assist in the delivery. While the storyline is traumatic, the cast kept the vibe light on set. "At one point, Stana was joking about eating the placenta," says Juliana. Fillion "was the first one to drop the fake baby," adds Seamus of the pricey prop. "It's his gag."

Say Yes to the Dress

Executive producer Andrew Marlowe has already decided when Castle and Beckett will get married. "But I don't think we're close enough to reveal it," he says, hinting that both Senator Bracken (Jack Coleman) and the ­presumed-dead 3XK killer could complicate the couple's plans. Nonetheless, the bride-to-be is in prep mode, and on the Jan. 27 episode, she finds a dress. "Beckett's past comes back and brings the dress to her," says Katic. She comes across the gown while investigating a case set in the world of high fashion. "Beckett's looking at designers' spring lines," says ­Marlowe. Trying on the dress "is an emotional moment for her because this is something she would have been doing with her [deceased] mother."

Mega Buzz also provided a few spoilers.

Is Castle done with the Sen. Bracken-Beckett story? — Nina
 Not if the show wants to keep leading lady Stana Katic happy. "I think that story needs really great closure," she tells us of Beckett's series-long search for her mother's killer. "They did a really nice job of developing this 'sleeping dragon' story, and [the end] of that should be done with justice to all of the years that they spent developing that." The good news? Creator Andrew W. Marlowe insists that he has plans to bring Jack Coleman's dirty politician back — but only when the perfect story comes up.

  1. Caskettlover says

    I’m so excited! I can’t wait for castle to return! I’m way excited for Jackson hunt to come back but I don’t want him to go dark! I’m looking forward to the wedding dress episode when Kate finds the dress but it’ll be sad without her mother. I wonder how Martha and Kate will react to hunt! Too excited!

  2. Kasey says

    I could not be more excited for the second half of the season! Sounds like there will be some good stuff coming up!

  3. BR says

    Lots of new information here. I’m a little surprised that AWM came out pretty directly and said that he’s already decided when the wedding would take place. I was imagining him providing a significant speedbump or two along the way this season to raise serious doubts as to whether the wedding would actually take place.

    The return of Jackson Hunt should be interesting, especially since he’s going to play the character fairly darkly. But I think the idea of him being attracted to Beckett is a little creepy!

    I also understand that with the schedule of some upcoming episodes being shuffled around, the episode originally scheduled for Jan 6th (Limelight – Beckett dealing with Castle’ fame) is now scheduled for Jan 20th. Can anyone confirm?

    Wow 2014 seams to be super exiting.Can hardly wait.As usual Mr Marlowe is comming up with more questions then answers.I would like to see more of Alexis, maybe se will see sence

I think Mr.Marlowb have much fun in store for our friends,and lots of excitement for us the many fans round the world.And to the cast and crew,thank you for your hard work

    • Darren says

      He’s mentioned this in a quote. ‘”What I said is that there’s an organic ending to the show and the characters will tell me when that is. I listen to the characters, and there’s going to be a point where we’ve had the best storytelling that these characters can give us.”

  5. Margarita says

    Wow, can’t wait for the show to start. Sounds like it’s going to be amazing… Will Castle be aware of Hunt’s attraction to Kate? How is Kate going to react? This has the potential of causing a lot of chaos…can’t wait. There are a lot fun and exciting eps coming. I just love this show! I hope the “Limelight” ep is still running on the 6th!

  6. Marilyn says

    The ep where Kate finds her dress is going to be touching. I would love to see a special moment between her and Martha. We haven’t seen one yet and I think it would be great to see Martha comforting Kate when she tries on the dress and thinks of her mom. A conversation between Martha and Kate would be wonderful.

    As for the Bracken and 3xk stories, I would love to see their stories resolved this season, and once Senator Bracken is put away, I would like to see a “Johanna Beckett fund” night. I think this will be a great way to put closure on Johanna’s story, IMHO.

    The Hunt episode will be phenomenal. I can’t wait. I can see Martha being Martha and putting Hunt in his place for talking down to Castle and for hitting on Beckett. Martha is a tough cookie!! Love this show.
