May sweeps is upon us and Castle is kicking off its countdown tomorrow with "Law & Boarder". Executive Producer Stephan Nathan and Creator Andrew Marlowe have a few spoilery promises for the conclusion of season 6, including more truth and mystery to be revealed about the murder of Beckett's mother. Plus, a long lost hustler will come into the picture with a stunning surprise that could derail Caskett's entire wedding.
The first May sweeps outing, "Law & Boarder" (airing April 28th), seems like business as usual, thrusting Beckett and Castle into the world of extreme sports. But the May 5th episode, "Veritas," based both on its title and synopsis, hints at weightier matter. Kate is revisited by her mother's murder after a man Beckett was secretly surveilling winds up dead. When evidence of the offing points to Beckett, she and Castle become the targets of a dangerous manhunt.
Season 6 Finale ~ May 12th
"For Better or Worse" will wrap our season and feature a clergyman among its guest roles. The Season 6 finale at least seems headed for a wedding, the finale title even holds the promise of a happy ending! However, don't expect the couple to make it to their wedding without some serious speed bumps. For starters, Warehouse 13's Eddie McClintock guest-stars as a small-town hustler who shares a complicated past with Beckett. "Weddings can either go off without a hitch or they can be disastrous," creator Andrew W. Marlowe teases. "
So the question is, how will McClintock's "shocking surprise" effect the big day and what connection does the small town hustler have to Beckett that will figure into the "I do"-or-die season finale hour? Producers go on to tease that, "People can end up together after a/the disaster. We still have a few tricks up our sleeve."
