'Castle': Jennifer Beals teases two-part episode, apologizes for causing Beckett fans 'anxiety'

Sophia Turner (Jennifer Beals) has been tasked with saving the United States from going to war, and she intends to fulfill her mission. But she’ll have to do so alongside a very important person from her past: Richard Castle.

Tonight’s episode of Castle finds Castle (Nathan Fillion) coming face-to-face with his former flame as the team works to stop an event from occurring that would “plunge the U.S. into world war,” says Beals. But her arrival also stirs up emotions for Beckett (Stana Katic) after she learns that Turner was Castle’s first muse and he shadowed her while creating another character, Clara Strike. The distinction, however, is that Castle has gone through significant changes in the years since they were in a relationship, shares Beals.

“You will see how he’s changed since his time with Sophia and his time with Beckett,” she says. “You also get more information about this past…[but] there’s definitely a ticking clock. It’s about getting the work done.”

And prepping for the role required a bit of work on Beals’s part as well, but she was coy about the details. “There were other things I had to prepare for that I can’t reveal to you because they have to do with the plot and what happens later. But I had to study international conspiracy theory. I was like ‘Wow. I guess that’s where Google comes in.'”

Overall, she says, “It was fun to bring something to the show that would maybe complicate the Becket-Castle relationship a little bit and give Beckett more information and give the audience more information about Castle.”

The two-part episode begins tonight and the conclusion will air next week. Beals warns, “The second episode is out of control…My apologies to all the fans who are huge Beckett fans. I apologize for any type of anxiety the character might cause you.”

Happy Friday, roomies.

It’s that time of the week again, and by that, I mean it’s time for you to feast your eyes on the last important task I do before spending 48 hours eating various cereals on my couch. (I’m so glamorous.)

Hope everyone finds a little something in here they like but if you don’t, make sure you’re sending me your questions. Address is same as always: I also except them on Twitter. (Click the button below to join the party.) See you next week!

There’s been a lot of self-reflection happening on NCIS as of late. (In fact, the show’s entire 200th episode was dedicated to a storyline that found Gibbs on a personal journey unlike any we’d ever seen.) And as you may have guessed, this is all no coincidence. In fact, EP Gary Glasberg tells me that all the threads we’ve seen thus far will weave together for this year’s season finale. Vague enough for you? Maybe he can help elaborate: “There’s definitely a theme to this season about decisions and [about] the roads that people have taken and choices in their lives,” he says. “I hope that has come through; it certainly did in the 200th, But I think that’s been the case — whether we’re talking about realizations, like Abby and her brother or a lot of the things that have come up with Tony and Ziva as well.” READ FULL STORY

Prepare yourself for a 10.0 on the cuteness scale.

EW has already shared a few details about this week’s episode of Castle, which finds Castle and Beckett investigating the death of a famous dog trainer, and as a result, stuck babysitting a homeless pooch. (The episode also guest-stars White Collar-One Tree Hill alum Hilarie Burton.) And, as this exclusive clip shows, it leads to a bit of a tender moment. (HAND HOLDING!)

I won’t continue because if I say more, I’ll spoil the moment. But click below if your curiosity is piqued. READ FULL STORY

'Castle' scoop: Castle and Beckett will share a [spoiler] in an upcoming episode!

A new challenge will unleash new emotions between Castle and Beckett in the second half of ABC’s faultlessly fun crime drama, but it’s probably less romantic than you might think it is. (Or is it?)

While chatting about what Castle fans can expect from the next batch of new episodes, executive producer Andrew Marlowe said the show’s reality TV-themed episode, which will feature a guest spot from White Collar and One Tree Hill alum Hilarie Burton, will find the partners in a situation they’ve never experienced before: sharing custody of a four-legged friend. “There’s some fun to be had with the Castle-Beckett relationship [because] our victim is a celebrity dog-show host and famous dog trainer. And in the aftermath of his death, his beloved golden retriever is left family-less. So Castle and Beckett get to enjoy sharing custody of the dog and I think it brings out stuff in their relationship that’s a lot of fun,” Marlowe said. READ FULL STORY

Oh, and I just figured out how to make one of these nifty Twitter buttons! (Don’t tease — I know I’m ridiculously late to the cool button party.)

'Castle' casting scoop: 'White Collar' actress Hilarie Burton tapped for Kardashian-esque guest role

I’ve always wanted to see a White Collar/Castle crossover and it looks like I’m an inch closer to my dream.

White Collar actress Hilarie Burton is set to guest star in an upcoming episode of ABC’s Castle, EW has learned. Burton, who also played Peyton on CW’s One Tree Hill for six seasons, will play Kay Cappuccio, a reality TV star with good looks, charisma, and a knockout bod. According to casting scoop, the tabloid darling has “achieved significant fame and fortune without possessing any discernible skill or talent” and “is famous mostly for being famous.” Sounds like someone we know… not that I’m naming names — because I already did in the headline.

The character, however, is more complex than some might think, as she both relishes the spotlight and “at the same time feels like a prisoner of her own celebrity lifestyle.”

Burton will appear in episode 13, “An Embarrassment of Bitches,” set to air in 2012.

Castle‘s Monday episode, which found Beckett struggling with her post-traumatic stress disorder, was up 13 percent from the previous week, with a 2.7/7 rating in the 18-49 demo and 11.9 million viewers.

'Castle' star Stana Katic on tonight's important scene that will alter Castle and Beckett's future

Stana Katic had her plate full when producers handed her the script for tonight’s episode “Kill Shot.” But she was more than up for the challenge of having to tackle one of Beckett’s most emotionally raw episodes yet. “I was really excited that we are continuing to delve deeper into the characters and keeping some of those major events we’ve played going and giving them a longer life, which is something that’s true this season,” she says. She’s of course referring to the consequences of Beckett’s shooting last season at the hands of a sniper, which this season, has sent the detective into a tailspin.

Tonight, Beckett gets out of control. If she’s not panicking during key moments, she’s uncharacteristically turning to alcohol to numb the pain she’s been reluctant to deal with. For Katic, the episode is full of telling moments. “I think this episode highlights the fact that she’s that modern-day hero who is not perfect, but trying to do her best,” she says. “She doesn’t always make the best choices or the right choices, but she’s trying to grow and push for her better self. It’s a character and hero people can relate to. I don’t think we have Supermen anymore. We have people who are flawed and those are interesting people to watch.” (See a clip from the episode here.)

As I’m capping off this week’s Spoiler Room, Regis Philbin is saying goodbye on Live! So as I try to ignore it enough not to weep like a mad person, forgive me if I don’t make a lot of sense. (God, I’m such a ridiculous sappy human!)

'Castle': Beckett loses control in 'Kill Shot' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Castle fans, don’t say I never get you anything nice.

Below, you will find a big treat I think you’ll enjoy and something I hope will take the edge off your wait for the next new episode of Castle. In this exclusive clip from Monday’s episode, “Kill Shot,” the team is investigating a sniper shooting that hits a little too close to home for Det. Beckett, who you’ll recall was shot by a sniper in last season’s epic finale and has been dealing with the physical and emotional effects all season.

Having seen the episode (more on that in this week’s Spoiler Room), I can tell you it’s a can’t-miss episode, due mostly in part to Stana Katic’s powerfully moving performance. Check out the clip below! READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Glee,' 'Criminal Minds,' 'American Horror Story': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Awwww. Y’all know what I realized this week?

It’s been just about one year since we first started our show-mance (and I mean that quite literally). Our mutual love for television has brought us together and I couldn’t be happier about it. So many thanks for your readership, harassment, and love. Sometimes, it all even came rolled in a single e-mail. Crazies after my own heart — I love it.

So I hope you enjoy today’s installment and the comfort of knowing that you’re now officially my longest relationship ever. Woo!!… I think.

Also, celebrate by sending me more questions and ponderings. (E-mail: or Tweet: @EWSandraG) You’re great people and I appreciate you. Happy Anniversary!! (Note: It was officially last Saturday, but in the grand tradition of all my relationships, I forgot. So we can celebrate now!)

So, readers, was Grey’s Anatomy not the most heart-wrenching thing ever last night? I was consoled only by the fact that I was sure there were other people somewhere bawling along with me. But aside from leaving me with puffy eyes, the episode also left us all with a burning question: What’s going to happen to poor Teddy? Well, when I spoke with Kim Raver, she weighed in on what’s next. “It’s like the time-bomb waiting to explode,” she says. “I know that she doesn’t just dissolve into a puddle on the floor. It’s not that kind of grieving. I know she will go into ‘Let me try to fix it’ mode. But we don’t know how long that will hold.” READ FULL STORY

'Castle': Tamala Jones on what's next for Lanie and Esposito. Plus, dish on January's 'phenomenal' wedding episode!

When Lanie and Esposito (Jon Huertas) broke off their relationship last month, it became clear, as Castle‘s Tamala Jones puts it, that the “honeymoon phase is over” between the two once-smitten lovers. But there’s hope on the horizon for the pair, she says.

“She’s got a wall up but I think that Esposito is breaking her down at this point, and you’re going to see a little bit of that [this] week,” says Jones. “She’s going to come clean about how she truly feels about him…but I definitely don’t think Laney is done with Esposito.”

And while full reconciliation might be an extended process, Jones says it will all come to a head in a January episode, which is being filmed now, that will center around Ryan’s (Seamus Dever) wedding to Jenny (played by Dever’s real-life wife Juliana Dever). “Oh my God, that is going to be the episode,” she teases. “I mean, Castle episodes are all good but this one, the wedding episode, I think it’s going to be phenomenal.”  READ FULL STORY
