ABC’s ‘Castle’ season 8 spoilers: Stana Katic’s Beckett mentors a cadet!

Beckett -There’s been a good bit of “Castle” scoop as of late when it comes to major stories revolving around Rick, so with that in mind, why not spend a minute or two now discussing some further matters when it comes to Beckett?

According to a new report from TVLine, Stana Katic’s character is going to get a chance to mentor a young cadet in the 15th episode of the season. Ellen Woglom is set to play the character, who will be at the same academy that Kate previously graduated from with flying covers so many years ago. This should at least give us a few fun scenes; fun is something that Beckett in particular needs a little bit more of following some of the hard things she went through over the course of the first part of the season.

Meanwhile, the site reports that Nick E. Tarabay of “Spartacus” fame is going to be appearing on the show in the role of Vasily Zhirov, a Russian agent who comes to work on an investigation. Here is what co-showrunner Alexi Hawley reportedly had to say on the subject:

“We get a little Red Heat action … We have a diplomatic security agent from Russia who comes, because there is the death of a Russian national. He’s a big character.”

We’ve seen some other quirky investigator characters come on “Castle” in the past, and we have to hope for now that this story is going to continue that trend. Fingers crossed for some fun!
