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

CastleMonday, May 16 is probably going to be forever known as a day of reckoning for fans of “Castle.” It’s the date of the season 8 finale, and an episode that could end up being very well the final episode of the series, depending on what happens with ABC’s decision. If nothing else, we know that it is the last episode featuring Stana Katic as a series lead.

The network released a synopsis for the episode (entitled “Crossfire”) recently, and it does make it clear that lives will be on the line as the LokSat investigation comes to an end:

“With their best lead in hand, Castle and Beckett are ready to take on LokSat. But an unforeseen twist puts their case – and their lives – in jeopardy.”

One of the oddest things about this episode at present is that the producers don’t even have the ending officially locked in for this episode just yet. There were two separate ones filmed depending on what the network decides, so obviously the hope here is that some executive decides what to do with the show by the time this episode airs; otherwise, we run into a situation where we really could have an ending that is frustration mounting on top of all of the frustration fans already feel at this point.

Ultimately, we do feel like one way or another, ABC will at least know what they are doing with “Castle” by the time this episode airs … even if that is not completely known to the fans yet.
