A new casting has just been announced for the fifth season of “Castle” — and it may be one that has fans of our title character and Beckett shaking in their boots a little bit. Is it something to really be worried about, though? For now, that is the subject up for debate.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, former “Prison Break” star Jodi Lyn O’Keefe will be appearing in the third episode of the show as Kristina Coterra, an entertainment reporter who takes some sort of interest in Nathan Fillion’s character. Caslte and Beckett are present at a news station in order to investigate the killing of a meteorologist, and there are plenty of suspects that abound throughout the newsroom.
Is Castle actually going to make a move back on O’Keefe’s character? We don’t like to think so, mostly because it is only an episode after we are going to see him together with Kate for the first time after years of buildup. We can never be sure, but what we see this more as is a test to see whether or not Beckett has anything to worry about with her new boyfriend. After all, Rick has a history of partying and seeing all sorts of women — though he has been faithful while in relationships.
The new season of “Castle” will premiere on September 24, and at that time we will hopefully find out some more information when it comes to how these two characters are going to handle their relationship when it comes to being around their family as well as their co-workers.
