Sons of Anarchy: Justified's Walton Goggins on his jaw-dropping Cameo
Although the transsexual escort — played by The Shield and Justified star Walton Goggins — was introduced as part of a comedic blackmail scheme last season, the character's most recent appearance took a more serious, emotional turn.

14. Best Shout-out: The gifts just keep on coming for Castle fans. Now that Castle and Beckett are together, the writer decides that they need a couple name. "So we're Brangelina now?" Beckett asks. "No, no. We're Rickate. No, we're Katick," Castle muses. "Caskett. Ooh! That's good because of the whole murder thing." Let's face it: Castle has never met a meta reference it didn't like.
