'Castle': Lisa Edelstein in for multi-episode arc

Somebody’s trading up.

Ex-House inhabitant Lisa Edelstein is moving on to bigger and better digs — specifically, ABC’s Castle. EW has confirmed that Edelstein has booked a multi-episode arc on the crime drama’s sixth season. TVLine first reported the news.

Edelstein — who last appeared over the past TV season on ScandalHouse of Lies, and Elementary — will play hard-core federal investigator Rachel McCord. It’s safe to say that the new character will have ties to Beckett (Stana Katic), who was planning to move to D.C. in May’s finale — until Castle (Nathan Fillion) unexpectedly proposed.

‘TRUE BLOOD: ‘PAM’S LOSING EVERYTHING SHE VALUES

True Blood premiered its sixth season last weekend on HBO, and while the reaction was somewhat mixed, I was glad to see one consistent feeling across the board: Gov. Burrell is one big slimy toad.

As you know, Burrell is the one leading this anti-vampire campaign, but quite soon, even more about his charge against the vamps will come to light — and some of it is a little disturbing. (One word: Experiments) “That is quite something,” Kristin Bauer van Straten says of the upcoming revelations about just how far Burrell’s gone to start developing defenses against the vamps. “It’s just all part of the theme that the tables have turned and the vampires are being hunted….[The humans] are figuring out how to fight back.” READ FULL STORY

Spoiler Room is back from summer vacation!!

For details on how I spent my weeks off, watch Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Summer Vacation. Actually, that has nothing to do with what I did, but I wish it did. (Also, I really love that movie.) The real answer to how I spent my time off is nothing you’d be particularly interested in.

Anyway, I’m back and have returned with a delicious heap of scoop. Enjoy! And don’t forget to send your questions for next week, people! spoilerroom@EW.com

'Castle' EP teases moments 'fans have been waiting for'

In last week’s episode of Castle, Beckett found herself confronting a few important questions. Specifically, she began to wonder about her future with Castle, with whom she feels she shares a passionate if seemingly directionless relationship.

Up to this point, the pair’s courtship has been a pleasant one — riddled with banter, fun romps and several sweet moments. But as the show heads towards its May 13 season finale, look for the more serious issues to rise to the surface, according to executive producer Andrew Marlowe.

“We’re getting to a point in their relationship where some important questions arise,” he says. “And some complications come in from outside their relationship that are going to force them to deal with where they are, who they are, and what’s next for them both individually and potentially in this relationship.” READ FULL STORY

'Castle,' 'Bones,' 'The Good Wife,' 'NCIS': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Happy finale season! We’re in the home stretch but before we all prepare for our post-TV season depression, let’s dig in to some scoop.

‘CASTLE’: SHOULD CASTLE/BECKETT FANS BE WORRIED?

Aside from a few bumps along the way, this season of Castle has been filled with lots of joy for Castle and Beckett — the “honeymoon period,” as executive producer Andrew Marlow calls it. But will the May 13 finale bring an official end to this honeymoon?

“I think the finale’s goal is to ask some hard questions, and take a look at some reconceived notions and some assumptions that both characters may have that may or may not be accurate,” he elaborates.

Judging from the questions you fans sent in, though, I know there’s one question that’s been plaguing your minds: Should you be worried about Castle and Beckett’s relationship status. The answer? Well, it’s complicated: “I think whenever we go into a finale episode, of course, the fans should be worried about things,” Marlowe says. “But what we’re trying to do is find honest organic storytelling that’s more complicated than ‘should we be worried’ because I think ‘should we be worried’ implies a binary outcome — either X happens to Y happens and I think we’re trying to tell a lot more complicated story than that.”

I warned you. It’s complicated. Thankfully clarity is just around the corner, as are more teases from Marlow. Stay tuned.

‘BONES’: HOW BAD IS PELANT? WELL…

Think we’ve seen the worst from brilliant hacker Christopher Pelant (Andrew Leeds)? Think again.

In Monday’s season finale of Bones, the evil genius now has more tools at his disposal than ever before and will show just how much he can mess with the lives of our gang, “I think it’s emotional for everybody,” previews Emily Deschanel. “The victims — there may be multiple victims — have connections to the FBI and Booth and Booth…knows the victim well. So it’s a big deal.”

After stealing Hodgins’s fortune in a previous episode, we’ll find Pelant operatings from some very fancy new digs in Monday’s season ender and living with “no restrictions.” “He has unlimited capabilities at this point and that’s pretty terrifying when you think about a brilliant, evil person with all those resources,” she says.

But his most evil act of the episode? That one you won’t see coming. “It’s like the last few season finales where you really have to watch until the very last minute,” she teases.

More from Deschanel on Monday.

‘NASHVILLE’: BIG CHANGES COMING

We all saw Lamar flirt with death in the last new episode of Nashville, but even though he made it out alive, there are big changes in store for the family.

“[Tandy] is sort of the son her father never had and has been groomed for the top role at the company and to succeed my father when it was time for him to step down or, god forbid, he should pass away. So it becomes clear the time is getting closer, it’s time to maybe make some moves,” Judith Hoag teases. “Lamar and Tandy have some different visions for how the company should be run, and I think Tandy has hit a point where she’s done being told who to be and what to do.”

That goes over with Lamar about as well as you’d expect. But Hoag says Tandy’s new attitude isn’t the only thing drumming up drama. “She also finds out information that makes her uncomfortable with how business is being handled…and also I question a big Lamar’s state of mind,” she says. “But we can never forget what a worthy opponent he is. He’s worthy and he taught me very well. So it should be interesting.”

ABC reschedules bomb-themed 'Castle' episode

An upcoming episode of Castle has been delayed in light of Monday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon.

EW has confirmed that ABC has rescheduled a bomb-themed episode of the hit drama, titled “Still,” which was set to air this coming Monday. It will now air on April 29.

Instead, the network will air another new episode, titled “The Squab and the Quail,” which was scheduled to air the week after “Still.” In “Squab,” Beckett (Stana Katic) is assigned to protect a charming billionaire entrepreneur ( Ioan Gruffudd) whose life is in danger.

The swap comes two days after three people were killed and more than 170 injured in explosions at the Boston Marathon.

'Castle': Beckett and Castle face their most vicious (and furriest?) foe yet -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

It’s been an intense few weeks on Castle (a crazy two-parter, an emotional Ryan-centric episode), but Monday’s episode is going to be a return to the show’s signature light-hearted fare.

In the episode, airing Monday at 10 p.m. on ABC, Castle (Nathan Fillion) is convinced their suspect-of-the-week is none other than Bigfoot. Meanwhile, Beckett (Stana Katic) thinks he’s nuts.

In the exclusive clip below, the pair set out to hunt for clues in the woods, but things take a turn when they become the hunted. READ FULL STORY

‘THE OFFICE’: HAPPY ENDING FOR ANDY/ERIN?

When Erin first came on the scene at the Office, I was convinced they were setting her up to be Mrs. Andy Bernard. But their romance has certainly unfolded differently than I expected, especially in the last few weeks, as we saw Erin break it off with Andy so she could be with Pete.

But will the two find their way back to each other before the end of the season? READ FULL STORY

'Castle': First Look at 'Rear Window'-esque 100th episode -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

In Castle’s 100th episode, everyone’s favorite writer is down for the count after a bad skiing accident, and after two weeks stuck at home in a cast, he’s got a little cabin fever.

“He’s not bed ridden but certainly apartment-ridden,” says Nathan Fillion, who calls the hour one of the show’s classic, lighter-toned episodes. “He’s two weeks into being incapacitated, and it’s all he can do just to stay sane. [Then] he witnesses a murder across the street, and he’s having a hell of a time convincing everyone he’s not just stir crazy and seeing what he wants to see.”

So what’s the truth? Our money is on murder — since these things have a way of gravitating toward Castle and Co. But you’ll have to tune in April 1 to find out for sure.

Meanwhile, Fillion says there’s another reason fans should consider this milestone episode a can’t-miss hour: “Let’s say that we get an opportunity to see just how well Beckett knows Castle,” he teases.

'Castle' two-parter preview: Boss Andrew Marlowe teases Castle's 'harrowing' journey

Tonight’s Castle kicks off a two-part episode that will find Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) in the worst position any parent can imagine.

While he and Beckett (Stana Katic) are investigating a case of a missing college student, they make a terrifying discovery: Alexis (Molly Quinn) was with the girl at the time she was kidnapped — and she’s missing, too.

“It’s different when your kid’s at stake,” executive producer Andrew Marlowe says of Castle’s unhinged emotions in the episodes, airing tonight and next Monday. “It’s different when you have nowhere to turn, and I gotta say for Nathan Fillion fans, they should not miss these two episodes.”

For more details on the episodes, check out our conversation with Marlowe:

You always say that you try to do your two-part episodes different each time. So tell me how the idea for this one came about.
ANDREW MARLOWE: Well, last year we got close to destroying the world. The year before that it was a dirty bomb that was going to take out New York, and the year before that it was a serial killer who blew up Beckett’s apartment. We had been getting increasingly bigger and I wanted to pull it back to something that had scope and scale but also had a deep personal investment. And I’ll tell you this, the journey that Castle goes through in this is harrowing and phenomenal. Nathan did an unbelievable job. And we see the character in ways we have never seen the character before.

Tell me about Beckett’s role in this one, where she has to be both a support system to a troubled father and a detective.
It’s incredibly tough to have somebody that you care about going through something harrowing and trying to walk the line between being supportive and doing the job. This is a woman who wants to do everything she can to make sure that they get Alexis back safely. Emotions are running incredibly high with both of them and she’s doing everything she can to support Castle. There’s some really tremendous scenes between the two of them — really tender and emotionally tough scenes between the two characters that I think, hopefully, audiences will dig.

How do Martha and the rest of the team at the precinct cope?
The choice that Martha makes and who she thinks she has to be in this situation I think reveals a depth of character about her. I think we’ve seen moments of it before. But for the folks at the precinct, everybody is invested. This is kind of one of their own. READ FULL STORY

ONCE UPON A TIME: MR. GOLD’S ADVENTURE

Mr. Gold is off on an adventure into a terrifying land he’s never been before — New York. And while Henry certainly enjoys the trek to NYC in this week’s episode of Once Upon a Time, Mr. Gold’s journey to find his son definitely is not going to go smoothly, according to executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. “I would say that ‘Manhattan’ is going to be the showdown that everyone wants to [see],” says Kitsis, referring to Mr. Gold’s reunion with his son. (Also, there are some amazing flashbacks that explain at least one major burning question fans have Gold for a very long time and the ending of the last flashback will send a chill through your spine.)

Kitsis adds that Gold’s confrontation with his son won’t be the only emotional turmoil we should expect in this week’s hour. “Emma is going to be dealing with a lot of emotional baggage [in the next few episodes], I’ll say that,” Kitsis says. “There are a lot of things she needs to get through.”

In related Once news, as I told you this week, August will make a reappearance later this season, and says Horowitz, “We can’t wait for you to see the next phase of his story.” But the rest of the season won’t just be returns from favorite characters. Two words: —i- -o–.
