In Castle's fourth new episode of the season, titled "Punked," studious Alexis Castle (

Molly Quinn) will begin dating a boy named Ashley, whom Castle initially mistakes for a girl. Ken Baumann, most known for his role as Ben Boykewich on ABC Family's The Secret Life of the American Teenager, will play the recurring beau who no doubt will get under Rick's skin.
