Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic
No wishy-washy "maybe" or "Give me time" from Kate Beckett. In the September 23 premiere of ABC's Castle, the detective (Stana Katic) will give Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) a definitive response to his marriage proposal.
Whatever her response — and whether she decides to stay in New York or move to Washington, D.C., for a new job — expect a romantic season that will include a birth, a new love interest for one character and possibly a wedding. "Regardless of her answer, it is going to significantly change their relationship," promises executive producer Andrew Marlowe.
As for the lovebirds' pals, Ryan (Seamus Dever) becomes a dad in a special episode, and Lanie (Tamala Jones) and Esposito (Jon Huertas) face more relationship complications.
New cast members include House fave Lisa Edelstein as a tough Fed whom Beckett wants to emulate (she'll appear in at least three episodes) and Myko Olivier as Pi, whom Alexis (Molly Quinn) met in Costa Rica. "He moves into the family loft and leaves Castle feeling invaded at home," says Marlowe, who is also planning returns for Senator Bracken (Jack Coleman) and Castle's father (James Brolin).
New cases involve the murder of a former child star and a visit from a man proclaiming to be a time traveler. "He happens to have information about Castle and Beckett in the future," says Marlowe. Might that info involve a Caskett wedding and babies?
