“Smells Like Teen Spirit” sneak peeks #2 and #3 have been released. Sneak Peek #2 was shown when Nathan Fillion guest starred on Jimmy Kimmel the other night. You can watch the videos below.
Can you tell me more about the Beckett episode coming up on Castle? — Julie
Beckett’s going undercover — with potentially disastrous complications. “Beckett thinks she’s pretending to be one person, but discovers that [the criminals] think that she’s somebody else completely,” creator Andrew W. Marlowe says. “She has to navigate those waters and figure out who she’s supposed to be, and any misstep could get her killed.” Adding an extra layer of danger? As the undercover op unravels, Beckett will once again come into contact with some familiar faces from the Johanna Beckett murder investigation. Any guesses?
A sneak peek for “Smells Like Teen Spirit” has been released. The episode airs February 17th. You can watch the video below.
Two sneak peeks have been released for Monday’s episode of Castle. You can watch them below.
Is Castle doing another two-parter this February? — Gina
“We’re going to forgo tradition,” executive producer Andrew W. Marlowe says, noting that Season 6 defied convention by opening with a two-episode case. But never fear: The Castle team still has big plans for the sweeps month. First up, an episode that involves the murder of a high school student. “It appears our victim was killed telekinetically,” Marlowe says. “It takes us in that Carrie kind of world.” Then, look for a big episode that once again digs into the Beckett mythology. Could her mother’s history be involved?
“Castle” will be delving into the world of high fashion for its upcoming episode, “Dressed to Kill.” Can the detectives balance haute couture and wedding planning with solving a murder? Get some hints with five spoilers from the episode.1. The murder victim is Ella Hayes, the assistant to fashion-magazine editor Matilda King (guest star Frances Fisher). Even before her death, Ella was not having a good time.
2. Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) look at bridal magazines for approximately a millisecond before they find their absolutely perfect wedding venue. Actually booking that venue, however, may take a little more work.
3. There are blue hairs found on the victim. Despite Castle’s theories, neither pop stars nor Dr. Seuss characters are involved with the crime.
4. At least one person is going to have cold feet about the Castle-Beckett wedding. But it might not be the person you think, and it might not be for the reasons you’d expect.
5. “Murder Is the New Black”: Incredible mystery-novel title or totally nonsensical phrase? Discuss.
“Dressed to Kill” airs Monday, Feb. 3 at 10 p.m. on ABC.
The next episode of ABC’s Castle — which (update) has been rescheduled for Monday, Feb. 3* — is less superficial than its glossy fashion magazine setting would suggest. In fact, it proves to be one of this season’s deeper dives into the Rick/Kate wedding arc.
Guest-starring Titanic mom Frances Fisher (also of ABC’s upcoming and compelling Resurrection) as a domineering Miranda Priestly-esque couture queen, the episode, yes, touches on Beckett’s “15-minute”previous career as a fashion model. But it also goes places you won’t expect.
I was dismissive of the most recent episode, which offered a toothless, forgettable riff on Miley Cyrus and her ilk. (Add in Nashville and Arrow, and all told it was a disappointing week for my DVR.) But “Dressed to Kill” puts all that in the past. ABC was smart to circulate it early.
Here’s a spoiler-free glimpse of what you can expect:
♦ You will learn precisely what it was that young Kate Beckett and her “unforgettable” cheekbones did, back in the day, to disappoint fashion mag maven Matilda King (played by Fisher). Hint: It involved Nicole Kidman.
♦ A significant portion of the episode is devoted to Rick and Kate’s search for a wedding venue — but their determination to zero in on one specific place, no matter what, may have unintended repercussions.
♦ So, the wedding dress Kate tries on (see brand-spanking-new photos below)…. Regardless of what you think of the gown itself, make no mistake, you will love this moment. But a word of warning: The scene grows far more complicated than perhaps anyone could predict. A really nice piece of acting by Stana Katic.
♦ If the above moment doesn’t wet your eyes, a later reference to Johanna Beckett surely will.
♦ ”Caskett” fans will on at least one occasion audibly utter, “Oh, no….”
♦ I know, Castle at times operates on a premise of selective amnesia. But the Prada aping — Matilda lobs her coat at her assistant and drops famous folks’ first names — makes it conspicuous that pop culture reference-ready Rick never draws a direct comparison.
♦ Sorry, Esplanie fans: Although there’s no Tory this week, Espo is more than happy to call in one of Matilda’s mannequins for questioning.
♦ The very final scene alone should provoke a good 50 to 75 comments on Monday night’s recap. Yea, Internet!
* Note: The airdate change (originally Jan. 27) was announced after this story was published, and is, I reckon, to land the episode during February sweeps (which begins Thursday, Jan. 30). No word yet on what will air this coming Monday; check back later for updates.
I really miss badass Beckett on Castle — might she show up again soon? –Stephanie
Oh yes. I’m hearing you’ll want to keep an eye out for Episode 17, “In the Belly of the Beast,” to be directed by Rob Bowman.
Any scoop on Castle? Will we see another two-part episode? –Andrea
I can officially confirm that, as show boss Andrew Marlowe anticipated earlier this season, the ABC drama is breaking with tradition and there will be no two-parter this February or spring. (Marlowe was always of the mind that the season-opening, high-stakes D.C. arc served that purpose.)
Question: Castle is my very favorite show and I would like any information you have for the 2014 season! –Donna
Ausiello: Previewing for Matt Mitovich her Jan. 27 turn on the ABC drama, Titanic mom Frances Fisher says that her ”high-powered” Anna Wintour-like fashion magazine editrix is quite surprised to come face-to-face again with one Kate Beckett, whom she first met years ago as a model. And it’s not the warmest of reunions, either. Teasing how things left off for the two back then, Fisher says, “There was an ‘employment issue,’ where I ended up not very happy about her decision [to quit modeling].”
