ABC’s ‘Castle’ season 5 spoilers: New photo from season premiere

For the September 24 premiere of “Castle,” it looks as though the gang is going to be picking up the pieces — both physically and emotionally. We know that trying to solve the case of Beckett’s mother is going to remain a priority for at least the early portion of this season, and the photo below serves as a primary piece of evidence of this very thing.

The image basically shows Castle and Beckett working with some of their crew to put together what looks to be a shredded-up document — though we don’t know much more than that when it comes to context. Are they likely to wrap up this case in the first episode back? Probably not, especially once you consider that Jack Coleman has already signed on for a lengthy arc as a United States Senator with some serious connections with the case. However, the early episodes are going to serve to get a good bit of this case out of our system — regardless of whether or not it is solved completely, we know the goal is to get back to a more lighthearted and fun tone in the early stages of season 5. What we could be seeing her is a strategy employed by “Monk” and a number of other detective shows with a mystery haunting one of their leads — give us a few pieces of information, and then move on to some other things when the case gets cold for a little while.

Regardless of what this document is all about, it should come as another pleasant reminder that the new season premiering September 24 is not that far away.
