If anyone felt a sense of déjà vu on Wednesday's American Idol, you weren't alone. Like last week, it was the Top 4 girls performing. But the key difference? Someone's definitely going home this week, as host Ryan Seacrest repeatedly assured viewers throughout the broadcast.

Loved the Castle premiere, but what was Castle doing with a half-naked woman in the promos for the next episode? —
ADAM: As creator Andrew W. Marlowe already teased, that encounter is a consequence of Castle pretending to be single in order to keep his relationship with Beckett a secret from their co-workers.
