Any details on the upcoming Castle wedding? — Tara
When Castle finds himself in an alternate universe where Beckett doesn’t know him, it makes him realize what’s truly important. But don’t worry: They tie the knot in real life, not the alternate universe. So rest assured that this is actually happening. “[The ceremony] isn’t going to be like their last wedding,” executive producer David Amann says. “It comes together in a slightly more hasty fashion. But that being said, it’s incredibly romantic and moving, and I think the fans are really going to feel like it’s the culmination of 6-plus seasons of this relationship.”
When ABC’s Castle resumes Season 7 on Nov. 10, the titular novelist’s life will get a rewrite, as the Case of the Week tees up a reality in which Kate (played by Stana Katic) never met Rick (Nathan Fillion) — and in which Alexis is brunette, apparently, based on these fresh photos.
Laying out the “rule book” for the reality-skewing episode, showrunner David Amann tells TVLine, “Castle has never written Nikki Heat, because he’s never met Kate, and she has no idea who he is” — not even as a successful novelist, mind you. “The people around him, including Martha and Alexis, are different as well, in different kinds of ways, in direct reaction to the path his life has taken.”
Meaning you can also expect to spy subtle changes in Ryan and Esposito, as a result of their Castle-free years.
“There’s a lot of fun to be had,” Amann promises. “Nathan is brilliant in it, playing the fish out of water situation. It’s a delightful episode” — especially, one must imagine, given the wedding bells that ring it to a close.
Question: Do you have any scoop on Castle Episode 8? —Jess
Ausiello: Titled “Kill Switch,” the episode revolves around a routine investigation that turns deadly when a gunman takes hostages on a subway car — including one of the 12th’s finest. BONUS SCOOP: Married with Children‘s Ted McGinley is set to guest-star in Episode 9’s Expendables riff as Brock Harmon, an aging, larger-than-life B-movie action vet (and the husband of the recently cast Krista Allen). The ep revolves around the murder of a Stallone-like movie star.

ABC’s Castle is soon to snuff an action-movie icon, and somehow go-to bad girl Krista Allen figures into the mix.
TVLine has confirmed that in this season’s ninth episode, which revolves around the murder of a Stallone-like movie star, Allen will play Naomi Duvray, a former silver screen siren who starred in a slew of critically unacclaimed 1980s action movies.
Naomi is also the wife of yet-to-be-cast Brock Harmon, the murder vic’s onetime regular costar and now the frontman for a B-movie franchise.
An alum of such series as Days of Our Lives, Baywatch and What About Brian, Allen’s more recent TV credits include episodes of Mistresses, Hawaii Five-0 and Melissa & Joey. The actress first shared her casting via Twitter.
