ABC’s ‘Castle’ season 8 spoilers: First details on Nathan Fillion – Stana Katic story in ‘The Nose’

Castle -Does “The Nose” sound like a classic episode of “Castle“? We’re not sure about that just yet, but it definitely sounds like one of the sillier ones. Any episode that forces you to rely on your sense of smell typically suggests that either you are bringing in a canine presence, or you are actually going to have Rick running around sniffing things. We love dogs, but we have to admit that the other option sounds like the most fun.

Earlier this week ABC unveiled the synopsis for this episode of the first time, including a notable guest star to go along with it:

“When a priceless work of art is stolen and its transporter murdered, Castle and Beckett must work with the key witness to track down the painting and sniff out the killer. With special guest star Stephnie Weir (“MADtv,” “The Comedians”).”

For those wondering when the show is going to pick up more of the story of the first two episodes, our advice would be to look towards episodes 7 and 8 this season for some further information on that. This will be starting to approach the key November sweeps, and we imagine that this is the sort of note that the show would want to leave on before waving farewell until the new year. One thing that does complicate this further this time is simply that the show, as previously reported, is taking a longer hiatus and airing its season in halves. Therefore, let’s hope whatever you get to see this fall (nose-based cases or not) manage to satisfy you.
