What can we expect for Castle and Beckett's relationship as we head to the end of Castle's season? — Dana
ADAM: The bumps that we've hinted at before will be exacerbated by two men who come into Beckett's life. First, Beckett will be assigned to protect multimillionaire inventor Erik Vaughn (Ioan Gruffudd) — in his private hotel penthouse. "If Castle aspired to be someone, he'd aspire to be this guy," creator Andrew W. Marlowe says. "Castle's really determined to solve the case and get his girlfriend away from him." During their alone time, Erik will ask Beckett some tough questions about where her relationship with Castle is headed. Unfortunately, as Beckett wrestles with those questions in the season's penultimate episode, she'll cross paths with a federal investigator (Carlos Bernard) who might offer some different answers. "He opens Beckett's eyes on other possibilities that might be out there for her," Marlowe teases.

CSI: Miami's 10th season premiere will find Horatio seeing ghosts.
Picking up from last season's cliff-hanger, Sunday's episode (10/9c, CBS) begins with Horatio (David Caruso) badly injured from a gunshot wound but still desperate to rescue Natalia (Eva La Rue), who's trapped inside the trunk of a car that's been pushed off the pier. But never fear: Horatio's deceased wife Marisol (Alana De La Garza) is on the job.

Carlos Bernard, David Caruso
CSI: Miami's Horatio Caine (David Caruso) is no stranger to formidable foes, but this season his opponent will be quite a doozy. 24 alum Carlos Bernard has been cast as Horatio's spectacularly wealthy season-long nemesis, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

"We're going to slowly position Horatio in opposition to a very subtle, but powerful, political patriarch," co-executive producer Barry O'Brien tells us. "He's kind of a Donald Trump meets the Kennedy family. ...There will be a very high-octane relationship between the two. A hero is as heroic as his opposition is deadly, so we're really going to go there with this character."
Virginia Madsen, Scoundrels
Take it from Virginia Madsen: Sometimes being bad can feel oh-so-good.
"Sometimes it's really fun to root for the bad guy," Madsen tells TVGuide.com of her new ABC dramedy, Scoundrels (premiering Sunday at 9/8c).

Madsen plays Cheryl West, the matriarch of a family of criminals. When her husband Wolf (David James Elliott) is sent to prison, Cheryl decides she and her four children — ditzy aspiring model Heather (Levin Rambin), young and smart Hope (Vanessa Marano), and twin boys (both played by Patrick Fleuger), one of which is a dim slacker while the other's a sharp lawyer — are going to go straight. Of course, things don't exactly work out that way...
24's Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) and less-than-plausible story lines have always had an uneasy alliance. Every really bad day of Bauer's packs so many plot devices into 24 hours it's hard to always keep things fresh. Here are a few of the most ridiculous plotlines the writers of the Fox series conjured up over eight seasons:
24 Boss: There will be no "happily ever after" for Jack Bauer
Teri Bauer Gets Amnesia (Day 1)
After being kidnapped and...
Carlos Bernard, 24
This Monday from 8 to 10 pm/ET, Fox's 24 wraps up its latest wild day with Jack compelled to set free his fallen friend, Tony, lest daughter Kim get killed. In this TVGuide.com Q&A, Carlos Bernard previews the surprise-filled season-ender, takes some issue with Tony's "bad guy" status, and also shares his take on Kiefer Sutherland's recent scrape with the law, saying the whole situation "smells bad."
TVGuide.com: At the start of the season, did they map out for you the whole "Tony's bad/No, he's good/No, really, he's bad" arc? So you could prepare as an actor?
Carlos Bernard: Going into the season, we knew we wanted to make him "the antagonist" — I can't really get on board with the "bad guy" thing — and one of the things explained in the finale tonight is ...
Not even the rain could keep the Jack Bauer faithful away from the world-premiere trailer for the new season of 24 in Times Square on Thursday. An estimated 200 people congregated around the giant Panasonic screen to watch scenes from the much-anticipated two-hour Season 7 premiere that will air on Sunday, Jan. 13, at 8 pm/ET. Fox promotion winners from around the country were flown in from as far as Phoenix to attend the screening and get a chance to meet actress Mary Lynn Rajskub. Luckily I saw the trailer yesterday because I couldnt really focus on it with all these people, Rajskub told TVGuide.com. It was very exciting, Im glad people turned out. The trailer opens with a new setting of Washington, D.C., and Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) on trial for his interrogation methods in his past six action-packed days. However, sticking to the spirit of 24, things start going wrong very quickly when ex-colleague Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard) returns as Jac...
Kim Raver, 24
In this TV Guide Q&A, Kim Raver of Fox's powerhouse 24 (Mondays at 9 pm/ET) shares exclusive intel on stolen kisses, sad goodbyes and Audrey Raines' future with Jack.
TV Guide: Let's get this straight: Jack was just roughing you up [in the April 3 episode]. Now you're working with him again? Kim Raver: There have been so many crazy switches for Audrey, but it works perfectly for her character. Her father was in the military and was secretary of state, so this ability to flip sides for the good of the country — it's almost inbred. If it's about saving lives, you get over whatever grudges you have and you move forward.
