Michael Trucco knows a thing or two about being "that guy" in a TV love triangle.
Castle's Stana Katic: Beckett's ready to tango with new love interest
Trucco's Samuel Anders came between romantic leads Kara "Starbuck" Thrace (Katee Sackhoff) and Lee "Apollo" Adama (Jamie Bamber) on Battlestar Galactica. Now on Castle, Trucco plays Detective Tom Demming, an increasingly powerful wedge between Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Detective Beckett (Stana Katic).
But Trucco tells TVGuide.com there's more to his role on Castle than creating another obstacle to a Castle-Beckett pairing. "It's an interesting plot device to enter in a third wheel — it always helps raise the stakes for all parties involved. But often, those characters can be one-dimensional," Trucco says. "What I like about Demming is he's actually a good guy. There's some sincerity in this character and I think he's genuine in his feelings for Beckett.

Hope you had a great week!
First, I want to address Elisabeth Hasselbeck's comments about Erin. I've gotten lots of comments on Twitter about it. They were just unnecessary and insensitive, simple as that. I'm the first person to say that everybody has the right to an opinion. I'm clearly one of the most opinionated people, but it's one thing to criticize to somebody's job and it's another to make ...
Two days before the global blackout, at NLAP headquarters in Palo Alto, Simon comments to Lloyd about the clothes they wore when they broke ground on the accelerator they are about to test. Though Lloyd says his choice of clothes was an accident, Simon says they are no accidents. Lloyd tells Simon what they're doing is a big deal. They've been working on tachyons for 12 years, and this is their moment. They share a drink. Lloyd then hopes the machine works. Simon says they're simulating the big bang, and wonders what could go wrong. Simon then gets a call, and is noticeably disturbed by what he hears. He asks if Annabelle is alright, and says he'll be on the first flight home. Simon tells Lloyd that his dad died.

From exchanging Post-it vows with Derek (Patrick Dempsey) to romping in McDreamy's office, Mer has been significantly less dark and twisty than the Dr. Grey we met on her first day at Seattle Grace.
And her happiness...

The good news: Hobbes shoots a V shuttle out of the sky. Cheesy effects, but I'm not going to complain too much. Right on cue, though, is our trusty Father Jack who gets another fit of is this right or wrong. Unfortunately he may have been on to something; the remains of the bodies that were on board the shuttle are all human. Oh crap! Run like the wind resistance. Run like the wind!
