Fall TV: Get scoop on your favorite returning shows
What began as a routine NYPD murder investigation for Castle (Nathan Fillion), Ryan (Seamus Dever) and Esposito (Jon Huertas) — a star of a '90s, Saved By the Bell-esque sitcom was found dead while production of a reunion movie was underway — quickly turned into more once Beckett (Stana Katic) and McCord (guest starLisa Edelstein) were called up from D.C. But even the Attorney General's office didn't have all the answers...

As promised, the Season 6 premiere of Castle wasted very little time resolving its Season 5 cliff-hanger.
After Beckett (Stana Katic) received an offer to work in Washington D.C., Castle (Nathan Fillion) became furious that Beckett kept the interview process a secret from him. But just when it seemed the pair was moving in different directions, Castle surprised Beckett — and viewers — by proposing! So, how did Beckett respond? ...
Happy (and busy) premiere week. It's a killer thriller showdown when two of the fall season's slickest new shows, NBC's The Blacklist and CBS's limited-run suspense serial Hostages, square off Monday (at 10:01/9:01c) in a contest of marquee power and derivative but inviting high concepts. They take on ABC's durable Castle, opening its sixth season (10:01/9:01c) with its star-crossed leads facing a personal and professional crossroads.

I am so excited for The Good Wife to return! Any scoop on upcoming cases? — Rosie
ADAM: Strangely enough, The Good Wife will take inspiration from Friends for an upcoming episode — but probably not how you think. The case of the week is based on the (eventually dismissed) 2004 sexual harassment lawsuit brought against several of the NBC comedy's writers by a former writer's assistant. "Lockhart/Gardner gets in trouble," co-creator Robert King says. "One of their paralegals sues the firm for sexually harassing her and the firm unfortunately can't represent itself. So, over David Lee's objections, they go to Elsbeth Tascioni [recent Emmy winner Carrie Preston] to try to defend them." Will she be there for them?

Lisa Edelstein, Stana Katic
Is this the woman who will come between Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Kate Beckett (Stana Katic)? Former House star Lisa Edelstein begins a three-episode Castle arc as investigator Rachel McCord, who is connected to Beckett's job offer in Washington, D.C., in the ABC drama's Sept. 23 premiere. "McCord becomes a mentor to Beckett and doesn't quite understand why Castle is hanging around," Edelstein says. "What McCord's done with her life is really inspiring and tempting to Beckett, but it is also threatening to the way of life Beckett's chosen so far."
