Is it possible for someone to find out why there have only been two sightings of Kate Beckett’s engagement ring on Castle this season? –Dan
I am your someone, Dan. And this someone hand-delivered your Q to Stana Katic. “The important thing to remember is that Beckett is a detective, so she can’t wear things that will identify her, she can’t wear things like that on her hands that would distract from the conversation, that could be stolen, that could possibly hinder her when she’s shooting or hand-fighting,” she explained. Also, Katic said, the ring “is something that Beckett’s very protective of, because she loves it, so on occasion, if it’s like a big event or maybe a private moment outside of being in bed, she can wear it. But having it on display at the work place is not appropriate, especially as a detective.”
This week’s episode of Castle was great, I don’t think they’ll be able to top that this season. What should we expect in the next episodes? –Cami
As you may have read, Eureka‘s Salli Richardson-Whitfield will guest-star in Episode 19, “The Greater Good,” as Captain Gates’ estranged, U.S. Attorney sister. Up after that is the already buzzy “That ’70s Show” episode, in which character actor Jon Polito (Millers Crossing, Barton Fink) will play Harold Leone, the onetime consigliere to an infamous mobster who disappeared in 1978.
IMDb lists Ruben Santiago-Hudson in the credits for Castle Episode 18. Any truth to that? –Jenn
None — though bringing Capt. Montgomery back would be a neat trick, amiright?
What’s coming up on Castle? — Jonah
Get ready to meets Capt. Gates’ sister! Eureka star Salli Richardson-Whitfield will play Elizabeth Watts, a U.S. Attorney with ties to Castle and Beckett’s latest murder. “We end up with a victim who it turns out is a confidential informant for the U.S. Attorney’s office,” creator Andrew W. Marlowe tells us. But don’t expect a lot of sisterly love during the investigation; they’re apparently estranged. “Gates doesn’t talk about her,” Marlowe says.
I‘m extremely excited about Castle’s episode set in the 1970s! Does the case revolve in that particular decade (á la “The Blue Butterfly”) or are we actually going to see flashbacks of Kate and Rick‘s early years? –Martina
The answer is… neither! As Stana Katic explained to me the other day, “In order to get information from one of our characters, we have to pretend that we’re in that era — because he believes that he’s still in that era.” But does that mean groovy threads and ‘dos for all? “I don’t know how extreme they’re going to go,” Katic answered. “But they’ve been playing around with, like, different hair and stuff — for the guys, mostly.”
Jonathan Z.: I need some Castle spoilers to get me through the week!
We’re beyond excited for episode 20! Why, you ask? Pull out your bell-bottoms and brush the dust off of your favorite Ashton Kutcher poster because this episode is called, “That 70s Show.” In the upcoming hour, Castle and Co. will be mingling with Harold Metzger, a man who was once second in command to 70s crime boss Vince Lamotta. But unlike most mobsters, Harold is likeable, funny, and unbelievably charming. Hold onto your gal, Castle!
The first sneak peek from “Room 147″ has been released. You can watch it below.
Question: I hope I’m not too late to beg for Castle scoop! —Mandy
