Castle makes a groovy return tonight when Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) take on a quirky case involving the newly discovered body of a missing mobster who was murdered in 1978. "A key witness in the investigation is stuck mentally in the '70s," Katic says, "so in order to find out vital information, we have to reenact the era."
Childbirth on TV shows rarely goes according to plan. For Castle's Kevin Ryan, there will be no exception.
On Monday's episode (10/9c, ABC), Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) investigate the murder of a victim found in ruins of a building fire. The team members learn soon enough that they're dealing with a serial arsonist, which is very bad news for Esposito (Jon Huertas) and Ryan (Seamus Dever), who end up trapped in a burning building just as Ryan's wife Jenny (Juliana Dever) goes into labor.

"We thought there would be high jinks with getting to the hospital and getting that phone call," Seamus Dever tells TVGuide.com with a laugh.
When ABC's Castle returns on Monday, Jan. 6, Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) find themselves under fire — literally.
Kate Meets Castle's Dad
James Brolin returns as Jackson Hunt, the estranged dad of Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion), on the Jan. 13 episode of ABC's Castle. He meets his son's fiancée, Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), but for most of the episode, she's unaware that the CIA operative is her future father-in-law (he keeps his identity secret to protect his undercover work). "That introduction comes later and is far more awkward," says Fillion.
Castle's "Esplanie" shippers will get an extra dose of the couple in the bizarre November 18 episode of the ABC drama when Detective Esposito (Jon Huertas) and medical examiner Lanie (Tamala Jones) are confronted with dead look-alikes. "A body at a crime scene looks identical to Lanie," says Jones. "Then another body pops up that looks like Esposito."
