As the countdown to the season 5 finale of Castle official begins, the spoilers and news cometh. Beckett and Castle will be hitting some bumps in the road and exacerbated, by way of two new men in Beckett's life.
First, Beckett will be assigned to protect multimillionaire inventor Erik Vaughn (Ioan Gruffudd) — in his private hotel penthouse. "If Castle aspired to be someone, he'd aspire to be this guy," creator Andrew W. Marlowe says. "Castle's really determined to solve the case and get his girlfriend away from him." During their alone time, Erik will ask Beckett some tough questions about where her relationship with Castle is headed. Unfortunately, as Beckett wrestles with those questions in the season's penultimate episode, she'll cross paths with a federal investigator (Carlos Bernard) who might offer some different answers. "He opens Beckett's eyes on other possibilities that might be out there for her," Marlowe teases.
EW has confirmed that ABC has rescheduled this Monday's bomb-themed episode, “Still". 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 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.
