ABC’s ‘Castle’ season 5 spoilers: See Rick get close to another woman

Even though the season premiere of “Castle” has yet to even air, we’re going to take a jump forward to episode 2. Why? Let’s just say that we are going to be seeing Nathan Fillion’s character get a little bit closer to someone who is not named Kate Beckett.

So what is going on here? For the time being, that is still very much a mystery. What we can at least say is that this character will be played by Jodi Lyn O’Keefe, and that she is going to be a saucy TV journalist who tries to get rather hot and heavy with Nathan Fillion’s character. The episode is entitled “Cloudy with the Chance of Murder,” and our two leads (including Beckett, which probably should say a few things about her job status with the force) are going to be investigating the death of a weather girl.

Here is the official description via ABC:

“On Beckett’s first day back from her suspension, she and Castle are thrown into the salacious world of local TV news when WHNY’s veteran weather girl is found dead. As if navigating an industry full of backstabbing and ruthless ambition weren’t difficult enough, they have to do it while hiding their new relationship from their coworkers.”

So what is really going on here? We have a feeling that Castle is really just trying to go undercover on a case; it’s possible that O’Keefe’s character is a suspect, and he is trying to seduce her. Another option? That she has information that she would prove rather useful to our detectives, and she will only give it us to someone that she is close with.

What do you think is going on here; and most importantly, how do you think that Beckett is going to react? Be sure to share some of your thoughts below, and also visit the link here to read up about the show’s upcoming Comic-Con spoof.
