Got a scoop request? An anonymous tip you’re dying to share? Send any/all of the above to
Question: What are you hearing about how Beckett will exit
Ausiello: Several things. And all of them are… um… less than ideal. Also, you can probably count on Season 9, which has not officially been ordered yet, kicking off with a significant time jump.
Castle‘s Nathan Fillion Breaks Silence on Stana Katic’s Exit: ‘She’ll Be Missed’
bombshell, I’ll take any scoop you can give us on how the rest of the season will play out. —Sarah
Ausiello: In the Season 3 finale, “Alexander Kirk” — named for Red’s longtime nemesis, to be played by
‘s Ulrich Thomsen — Red will experience a betrayal at the hands of someone
Question: I’m hoping you have some spoilers on
Ausiello: You’ll begin to see his/her handiwork in the April 28 episode, but the Big Bad won’t actually reveal themself until later in the season, confirms co-showrunner Michael Peterson, who cryptically adds, “Whether or not you will
that it’s them? That’s an entirely different question.” Translation: THE CALL IS COMING FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE!
Question: Will Emilie de Ravin’s Belle now be missing from the last few episodes of
, due to the actress’ maternity leave? Will Belle at least make an appearance in the finale? — Rebecca
Ausiello: Though Belle just subjected herself to a sleeping curse, I am hearing that viewers have in fact
seen the last of de Ravin this season, while Rumple’s expectant wife figure into the storyline through to the two-hour finale (airing May 15).
is approaching, do you have any scoop on what to expect from the last 13 episodes? —Mick
Ausiello: No scoop…. unless you consider an exclusive first look at the final-season trailer a scoop (which, for the record, I do).
Question: How many different categories on the May Sweeps Scorecard does
have entries in? Alternatively, how many total slots? —Paige
is represented in at least three different categories — all involving the same character.
Ausiello: This Friday’s episode, titled “Good to the Bone,” is a Wu-centric hour that focuses on the sergeant’s increasingly troubling tendency to wolf out (or something along those lines). “It’s something he must learn to control,” executive producer James Kouf says. OK… but is that even possible? “Well, we
is going in a different direction every episode. Are we really going to find out who the terrorist is by the end of Season 1? And why is Caleb faking his mental state? —Johanne
Ausiello: Let’s handle the second question first: Clayton and Claire Haas’ son “is a heroin addict,” showrunner Joshua Safran says. “He’s not faking.” As for the terrorist(s?)’ identity, Safran promises you will definitely know who’s behind the bombings by the time the credits roll on the finale. “In fact,” he adds, “you will know who the terrorist or terrorists are
on the bubble, did the show shoot an alternate series-finale ending just in case? —Sharon
Ausiello: I sincerely hope they did, considering the
finale ends on a massive cliffhanger. Speaking of the finale, here are three things that will happen and one that’s just wishful thinking on my part.
♦ The name “Jeff Fordham” is uttered several times.
♦ At least one couple on the outs grows much closer.
Question: Any sense of what we can expect from How to Get Away With Murder in Season 3? —Mitch
Ausiello: Given the reduction in “cases of the week” in Season 2 — and the overarching emphasis on the Haspstall trial — we asked showrunner Pete Nowalk if there’ll be a similar blueprint for Season 3. “I like switching it up, honestly,” says Nowalk. “I don’t want the show to become stale. In the back half of Season 2, we had so much emphasis on Rose’s case that there wasn’t room for cases of the week. We’ll probably try to do a balance.” Whatever approach wins out in the writers’ room, though, Nowalk says there’s one thing about HTGAWM that will remain a constant: “I love watching Annalise do her job in any way. She loves her job, and I don’t think she’s the same person if she’s not doing it. So, whether that’s case of the week or case of the season, seeing her at work is what I care about.”
? —Jeffrey Ausiello: The introduction of political consultant Susan Weller (played by Lauren Stamile) in last night’s episode will lead to “Dawson, from a distance, being a little bit suspicious of this woman’s intentions” with regard to Casey, executive producer Matt Olmstead previews. While Dawson “gets a bad hit” off Susan, she doesn’t “want to come forward and come across like the jealous girlfriend who is not thinking about this objectively. So she’s letting Casey do his thing.”
Question: My mom has been bugging me all week to ask you if she will be satisfied with
‘s ending. Is the rumored Will Gardner appearance a dream sequence or flashback? —Bill
Ausiello: If your mom likes it when series finales serve as the perfect bookend to a show’s pilot, then, yes, your mom is going to be satisfied with
‘s ending. As Julianna Margulies revealed in the current issue of
, the episode will find Peter and Alicia once again “standing at the podium” at a press conference and “you’ll see a very subtle thing at the end that she does physically with Peter that’s very different from when you first met the two of them.” (My guess: A lint brush is involved.) BONUS SCOOP: I’m hearing the aforementioned presser is thankfully
Ausiello: As part of our May Sweeps Preview Extravaganza (coming soon!), showrunner Peter M. Lenkov told Matt Mitovich that May 13’s two-hour season ender is “very serious” stuff, involving as it does, among other things, a thrilling set piece where a tiny plane must land on a tiny island. “McGarrett ends up getting shot, and Danny, who’s never flown a plane before, has to land their plane,” the EP previews. “The stakes are really big.”
Question: Are we going to see Michael and Jane’s wedding before the end of this season of
? I loved that they didn’t show Jane’s dress — it makes me feel like I’m one of their wedding guests waiting for the big reveal! —Drew
Ausiello: I can confirm that the season finale, “Chapter Forty-Four,” will at the very least include a wedding
. And I know this because the show is looking for a middle-aged Latino actor to play the priest who is set to marry Jane and Michael. “Father Felipe,” according to the casting notice, “is irritated that Michael is running late for the rehearsal and wants to ensure everything goes right on the big day.” Now here’s my question for
, Drewski: Why the frak is Michael running late for his wedding rehearsal?! (These are the things that keep me up at night, FYI.)
need of some scoop, preferably of the Krystal variety. —Brett
Ausiello: Forget, Krystal. Felix is finally getting his own storyline, separate from the clones! Knowing that “he’s the only one that’s not a blood relation in this non-traditional family” will set Sarah’s foster bro on a “personal” journey in Season 4, executive producer Graeme Manson previews. “While everybody else has been hiding out, Felix has been left to himself [to ask] a lot of questions about his own origins, and a lot of those questions are going to be answered.”
Question: A while back, BBC America released an In Memoriam video for every death on
. Delphine was the last character included. Is this confirmation that she’s really dead? (Please no!) —Billie
Ausiello: While co-creator John Fawcett would neither confirm nor deny that Delphine is a goner, he did allow that there remains “some mystery” regarding the Dyad CEO’s fate in the wake of her getting shot in the Season 3 finale. My guess: She’s
Ausiello: If you suspect that kidnapped Caitlin will angle to be Beauty to Zoom’s Beast and chip away at his defenses while in captivity… you’d be wrong. “No, that doesn’t happen, which is actually kind of refreshing,” Teddy Sears shares. That said, “We eventually ‘pierce the armor’ and see why he’s taken her,” though his exact agenda for his ex “won’t be immediately clear.” Caitlin, though, would be wise to worry. After all, her captor “is ‘off,’ he’s broken, he is not a linear, level-headed guy,” Sears observes, “and he eventually makes a decision which gets us to where we go next.”
” —Liam Cunningham, tongue firmly planted in cheek, teasing
Season 6 premiere, which finds his character Ser Davos “moving” dead Jon Snow “around a bit.”

OMG I hope Maddie gets run over by a dump truck!
Came here to make sure it wasn’t a joke. Don’t play with our emotions. It’s really happening, right? …Daphne can stay.
Gotta make sure shes dead after all. No harm in running her over a few times.
I hope this is not a joke Love to see them go and backup and do it again to make sure she doesn’t come back.
First we got the most annoying teenager on the planet, then we get the most annoying twentysomething becoming obsessed with the teenager. I wouldn’t miss Maddie – or Cash – at all. Daphne can definitely stay. Yeah, Nashville’s jump the shark moment came the minute Maddie went through puberty.
I could not have been happier reading this spoiler. If they aren’t throwing Cash in jail and sending Maddie to juvie, then kill her off, by all means.
Me too! She is insufferable. Its too bad because the girls are enjoyable when they are being decent. I wish they wouldnt write maddie so cliche. This storyline disappoints me.
I’m very excited about Bones’ April 28 episode. They’ve been talking about it for a while. And David is directing the finale, he shared a few photos of some puppets… that’s gonna get creepy, puppets are always freaking creepy, lol.
If they kill off Beckett, they will have effectively ruined the entire series.
I think we should prepare for AT BEST an ambiguous death where we don’t see the body.
Since Hawley wrote the finale, we might be treated AT WORST to a bloody, violent, fiery end for Beckett.
I don’t understand why anyone thinks that the majority of the Castle audience will watch the show without both Stana and Nathan in it.
They live in a different reality than the rest of us.
Double agree. I just totally don’t get it. I know it’s not an April Fool’s joke because that’s that date has passed. So …????
I’m out of hear,, only family show that you could watch and not feel that a whole new life stile was being pushed on you to change your ideas of life and mirage.
They already have. Stupid move all around. No more ABC for me. Only one I watched anyway & no Beckett, no show.
How can they expect fans to turn in to a Castle re-boot without Beckett? They should just give us a happy ending for Rick and Kate, then do a true spin off with a new title, a new premise, and new cast. If they make this too painful, many fans will turn away from any attempt to make a positive out of the negative situation that is the loss of a beloved character like Beckett. It may have worked for Grey’s Anatomy because they have such a big ensemble cast with several story lines going on-but Castle has always been totally about Rick & Kate together, not apart. I just don’t see how they can spin it in a way that will be something we want to watch after they’ve disappointed us so much.
I agree! I have the Castle series on Amazon. I will not watch the returns anymore, if they kill Beckett off. TBS can kiss Castle goodbye. If they continue Castle, they can have Beckett with a small role each week.
no point in watching the rest of this season of castle if you already know the ending rip beckett);
I have a bad feeling Michael on JTV is either on the fatality or someone who’s fate is up in the air list on the May sweeps scorecard
I’ve worried that Michael is on borrowed time since that ominous voice over last season about him believing something until “the end of his life”–and the clock is ticking down.
I forgot about that it’s not a good sign
I’m guessing Red finds out Liz is alive and that Mr. Kaplan was one of the ones behind her fake death. Poor Red.
I had the same thought. And you know how Red feels about loyalty. I hope she survives this betrayal if it’s true.
Red had better not mess with Mr. Kaplan! After all, she’s only trying to protect Liz, which is ultimately what he wants anyway.
That Nashville bit was perfect… if only on that dump-truck… double bonus if Cash is with her.
Yes Layla needs to be included. This character needs to go.
I agree. She’s dull and is just there for no reason at all.
About the TGW spoiler…I bet it’s her shoes that face another direction (away from him) this time around. I sincerely hope we’ll get to see her divorce and be with someone else.
So Beckett dies & Season 9 starts with a significant time jump so they can make Castle not really depressed anymore about losing his wife and act all buffoonish again. Seems great.
Sounds about right. Should be a fun and exciting time for all.
In my company, if you pitched a product and up front told them there is a 90% chance it will fail and polling shows only 15% of target users actually want the product, they would immediately send me for a drug test to see what I am smoking.
I don’t understand why AWM can’t step in and say he does not want this. Does he not have any say?
It’s bloody disgusting how things are turning out.
Yes, Marlowe mysteriously stepped down right before “The Year of Castle,” and then disappeared before this season. It appears he has been banished.
Darn, maybe he signed away all of his creator’s rights to Castle, and ABC can do whatever fool thing they want with it. Too bad, just really awful!
Good point Allie, I have to think that someone at ABC is monitoring all of this negative feedback-they can’t possibly want to burn all of us and then think we’re going to come back and watch while they upset us further! If money is what they’re most worried about, they’ll lose more!
Well, I hope she doesn’t go under witness protection and there is some blonde (because Kate would have to look very different) actress being Kate Beckett! Even if I won’ t be watching, that would be beyond disgusting!:@
If you’re a shipper you’ll hate this and never watch anything on ABC ever again. If you are not, you’ll tune in to the new incarnation and see how much closer Rick, Javi and Ryan grow.
There is a decent show there. While admitting that losing Beckett is stupid, and further admitting that this was all handled poorly, I would check that new show out.
Maybe, but they really need to change the title and not call it Castle-
Based on the last few episodes they seem to be setting up the Castle detective agency with him, Haley, and Alexis with Javii and Ryan as recurring characters. They will either kill Kate off or she gets a big overseas promotion after solving Lockset or just talk about her off camera.
I cannot believe they didn’t even mention Delphine in last weeks episode! i’m so anxiousssss
No matter what Susan’s real intentions are with Casey, Dawson IS going to be a jealous girlfriend. All she did was see her speaking with Casey and she already has a tude towards her. It was written all over her face, lol!! These two are finally having a grown up relationship, let’s not go backwards please.
If they kill Becket they will be ruining one of the best love stories on tv and a big slap on the fans faces
I really don’t think they care what the fans want. I will not be watching season 9 and probably not even the season 8 finale.
Truly sad what’s happening to a once beloved show.
-Maddie gets run over by a dump truck lololol, I’m trying to contain my laughter at my desk right now. Declaration of love or couple grows closer, I will take Scarlett and Gunnar in either of those categories please :)
-Legends: Just please…keep both Sara and Leonard in one piece.
-Chicago Fire: I don’t know why but I feel like a Casey/Dawson elopement may happen (disclaimer: I’m most often wrong in my predictions so maybe that’s wishful thinking).
A less than ideal ending for a popular character. Well, at least this confirms my belief that Stana Katic wasn’t totally blindsided.
She had to have at least known when she sat down for that “good read” of the finale script and promised ABC “no spoilers.” Heh.
It was obvious Season 9 was a go with the recent announcement. I can’t wait to watch it crash and burn from the sidelines. 💨 💥 🔥
From what I read I think it will be more like both of their life’s are in danger in the finale and then at the beginning of season 9 there will be a five year time jump and probably one sentence like : my wife died 5 years ago and by then castle and Hayley are romantically involved…
Um… I can see them doing a six-month or one-year jump, but not five years.
And no offense, but I think it’s cute that people think Castle is going to have a love interest after this season. .
Clearly Castle has become asexual. Sure, he has charm that can be construed as flirting. He can waggle his eyebrows like your favorite cheeky uncle. He can even flip his perfectly treated and conditioned hair like a metrosexual millionaire.
But Castle, as he’s developed over the last few years, will likely not be having any sexy time with the ladies in Beckett’s absence.
Not quite because he’s eternally heartbroken by Beckett’s absence, but mostly because he’s forgotten how to be sexy.
Really JOT–I’m reading this and I come to ‘asexual’ and I’m laughing, probably bothering the neighbors, the damn dog is barking. I think you really might be totally pi$$ed off–yes, good guess? :)
I agree. Just sickening. Bring out the puke bucket.
No, because there are 3 different betaine if the finale they shot. One is a series finale ending, one is a usual season-ending cliffhanger, and the third is, I’m guessing, Beckett’s ending.
CBS stated that they were going to let Beckett go last year, but when Patrick Demsey left, they felt it would be too much, so they signed Beckett for another year. I think she was aware of it all along. If you notice, as a Captain she is out in the field all the time and her scenes with Castle are less and less. Me thinks there is some animosity there. I like where the show is going now with the daughter and british gal. Actors come and go for many different reasons. Look at CSI they have lost two major actors, Michal Weatherly leaving this season, and they are still #1.
Your facts are a mess. It is ABC, not CBS. It is NCIS not CSI. Alexsis is a disaster and Hayley adds nothing to the show.
Lauren Stamile is the queen of causing a rift in a beloved couple during the fourth season of an established and successful show, isn’t she?
I hope all 10 people that watch “The Nathan Fillion Show” enjoy that.
Oh, please. There will at least be 100 people left go watch. 😉
I think it’s very generous of ABC to keep a show that probably almost no one wants to see just so NF has something to do
They must believe in his national and international appeal…
That just made me gag! Yuck! I was checking out his twitter feed after his ridiculous too little too late pr written response to Stana leaving and someone asked him how many languages he spoke and he said two – English and the international language of love.
No wonder Stana allegedly can’t stand him. Embarrasses me that he’s a fellow Canuck. :-( Not that I have developed a genuine dislike for him this or anything,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
You are generous, but ok I will concede maybe 100. I’m sure his and Molly’s families can round up at least that many.
Duh Fillz is apparently a popular guy. I’m sure he can round up a few actors for viewing parties at his house every Monday – or, perhaps. Sunday.
“-or, perhaps Sunday”. Ha! That made me laugh. I was thinking Friday at 8, but Sunday works too.
Maybe he will buy 100 TV’s and Satelite boxes and tune them all in.
“The Death Slot” is Tuedays @10pm. Won’t be watching, that’s for sure.
Allie you got it wrong, it’s “The Nathan Fillion Comedy Hour” a sure hit!
Every week is a super special guest doing super special fun things with Castle and his gang.
Watch Castle serve as the intrepid, if sometimes hapless, leader of his ragtag group of detectives. At Castle PI, they solve all kinds of crimes, not just murders!
Besides, he has millions of dollars (or more!), so adding Espo and Ryan to his payroll – with benefits – will be no sweat.
Together these guys and gals are going to entertain millions around the country. And the world.
With all due respect, it was Fillion’s fan base that got the show off and running.
I’m curious to see whether Jane and Michael actually end up getting married on Jane the Virgin. I feel like it can’t happen because if they get married, Jane will no longer be a virgin and they would have to change the title of the show. I’m still holding out hope for Jane and Rafael, even though I feel like they’ve barely had any scenes together at all lately.
The showrunner said Jane losing her virginity “is imminent “& when/if it happens,they’ll put a one through The Virgin in the title.
But I agree I see something disrupting Jane & Micheals wedding
On Flash it would be interesting that Ronnie Raymond from Earth 1 was sucked into Earth 2 and teams with E2 Dr. Martin Stein to create Firestorm who actually rescues Caitlin from Zoom.
I think they’d love to do that. Robbie Ammel’s availability may be a problem.
i think e2 stein was in deathstorm cus e2 ronnie said he hasnt been hearing stein for along time
On Nashville, i’m thinking the couple that grows closer is Avery and Juliette.As for Castle, i’m wondering if Beckett is presumed dead but her body is not found.That way the door is left open for her to return one day.
If Belle is in OUAT finally they must have filmed her scenes early as she gave birth in March.
Nashville: 3 out of the 4 stated for Nashville all point towards Juliette. I want her and Avery to get back together.
omg… you think Juliette runs over Maddie with a dump truck?
+1 to you! Michael putting that in there has lead to some great afternoon entertainment in this comment section.
That serial killer sounds awfully scary on Bones. Cannot wait to see how they handle this one
I really do not understand why, if ABC is so desperate to give Nathan Fillion his own show, they don’t just CREATE A NEW ONE FOR HIM! Castle’s ratings are lower than a new show’s would be, so why not just start fresh and refrain from destroying a wonderful love story? Not to mention alienating a zillion fans!
It’s easy money for those who are left on the show. Especially for Fillion, since he’s basically playing himself on a daily basis. Why go find him a new show and have him stretch his acting muscles when he can play himself?
He could just play himself on a new show as a character named Dick Fortress or something. No need to ruin Caskett!
Well, I don’t disagree with you, but corporates are ruthless. Money is above all.
Wonder if there will be any more Richard Castle: Nikki Heat books now. Not that I read them, but just curious if AWM will be writing them. I am sure that ABC owns a piece of that too. That’s a main reason to keep the Castle name going.
I’m curious about that too. But, I don’t think the ghost writer for those Nikki Heat books is Marlowe.
You are probably right about AWM. But ABC may keep the books coming, maybe not Nikki Heat. Another muse?
Those books have been written by a variety of writers. You can tell the difference in style from one book to another, at least I could. I only read the first 3. After that I got tired of the change in tone from book to book.
Absolutely agree! How much are ABC execs being paid to make bad decisions like this? Glad I don’t watch much TV-Castle was the only show I made a point to watch every week-looks like I’ll have more free time for walking my dog and reading stories I enjoy.
100% agree. I might even give it a chance. But Castle is dead to me now. I couldn’t even stomach Monday’s episode.
Because then they’d have to give up the rest of the cast who are all awesome, and all have great chemistry with each other!
Maybe Layla Grant goes nuts and tries to kill Juliet for being responsible for Jeff’s death and she keeps saying his name while she is doing it.
Only two people could betray Red, Mr Kaplan or Dembe. I believe Mr Kaplan masterminded Liz’s “death” to protect her from Reddington’s world.
“Clayton and Claire Haas’s son is a heroine addict.” So Caleb isn’t their son, or they have another son???
Michael, stop trying to kill Maddie!!! The quality of the show might go up, but the quality of the music would go down significantly without her.
Running late for wedding re-hersal? If he shows up, could Michael be up to something? But surely the writers of this show wouldn’t put Michael in any danger of becoming an interesting character? If something doesn’t change with Jane and Michael soon this show is going to die! Frankly, I’m almost praying for his death at this point because I just can’t take this perfect pod-person boyfriend Michael has become for much longer!
I agree. I gag when they are together. They are not in a real world. Killing him off might be the best thing for him and Jane. He is boring and minus any chemistry. If they marry, it is over for me. Can they make her father any sillier? The best scene he was in was when he was kidnapped.
I want to know if there is any news/rumblings on Cat coming back to H5-0 next season??
I just don’t get it. Why ruin everything for 13 episodes ? If someone had told me Beckett would be killed … This is so disgusting.
It’s possible that s9 won’t be a final season (as Fillion wants it to continue years to come, YEARS! But whether it can survive thru 13 ep is another discussion)…more like a shortened season to test the water because they can always order more episodes if things are going as plan. Or, it’s because NF needs more vacation days in a year.
Yeah, working only 2 days a week, is such a tough schedule!
Thank you for the H50 scoop!! I hope the finale is super bromantic for Steve and Danno.
With whatever had been going on BTS in Castle, it sounds far more interesting than what they are doing with the rest of s8 and s9. It’s like a hostile takeover that has been years in the making. First kick out the show’s creator, then anyone else who is not on they’re team. Good drama, folks!
Hostile Takeover…could be.When Winter came back the whole character of the show changed.Kate Beckett’s integrity was questionable because of an illogical, badly written Story Arc.That falls Directly on the Show Runners .Many of us knew,that Kate was being written our of the show,to make way for Castle PI/GDS. She was marginalized and the loyal fans screamed.The Show Runners outright lied and led us on to keep watching. False hope kept Castle from being cancelled because people Did hope and watched.I don’t believe Stana who was the Co Star of Castle and was a HUGE draw,for fans was fired for money. New information is coming out.It actually sounds very plausible but sometimes the seed of resentment bears fruit of meanness.I hope Nathan didn’t bully Stana.I truly hope not.It probably was Personal between the two of them and didn’t effect anyone else because SO MANY people talk about how wonderful and sweet BOTH of them are.I personally won’t watch S9.
I wish my profs made multiple choice exam questions as easy as your Nashville one!
The rumors must be true about Nathan being a diva. I hear that he loathed all the attention that Stana was getting via “Castle.” She’s out because of him, I’m sure. The rest of its run is going to fail miserably. Ugh.
um you couldn’t be more wrong. Nathan is not a “diva”. He loves Stana and the whole Castle family. She’s definitely not out bc of him. This is the last thing he wanted i’m sure. Its ABC. Why are people so quick to blame actors when actors have no say. And it was clearly stated that this was ABC’s decision bc of budget cuts.
Bahahahaha…Oh, were you being sarcastic? Nope, I don’t think you were. Bless your heart.
You remember that time when he threw a diva fit and not show up to work, making the everyone who went to work that day to go home without getting paid? Yea, I’m sure it wasn’t him.
And Santa is real!:-D Do you really believe A LEAD of a show, its half, would be cut due to budget issues? And Nathan “loves” Stana, really? Yeah, it was very obvious on the statement his PR wrotte that he does!:-D. And just to be clear, I don’t care if they get along or not, but doesn’t mean I don’t see the evidence.
Amy, I have some beach front property in Arizona I will sell you cheap.
In all honesty, no matter how it went down, I’m grateful SK is out of that situation.
Nathan was NOT fired. It talks well about him. He is NOT the diva here. Probably she is the diva and that’s why she was fired by ABC, why don’t you think about it?
If Stana Katic is a diva, why would ABC mention that they want to maintain their relationship with her? .
They could’ve left it at the pat kudos for her work, but they made a point to keep that part in there.
Now, to be fair, they’re currently working with a diva, so maybe ABC just likes that sort of thing.
Because if that was the case, ABC would be screaming it from the rooftops and not wiliing to take the blame? The fact they didn’t even suggest it and admited having told her she wouldn’t be asked to renew says a lot, imo.
Betista! SERIOUSLY? I don’t care whose fan you are but here are the facts. Fillion was negotiating with ABC for months on the QT! He had a hissy fit about the Beckett character being more popular the Rick! He told the writers to get in line because he was the “star”simply couldn’t stand working with a woman as or more talented the he is! And then that publicity release written by some PR hack! Cold,unfeeling and insincere! You might want to support this type of guy,It’s your right to do so but spare me His diva tantrums are well known!
seriously? you know you are telling and repeating lies. I hope we know the truth one day.
I am really tired of Stana fans, they are always attacking, they attacked the producer, the writers, members of the cast, ABC and they are always blaming Nathan for everything! this is absurd, ridiculous, too rude. The disrespectful these people are showing on social media is tremendous.
LOL, more talented? She’s beautiful, but she sure isn’t the best actress.
Hello, they didn’t fire Nathan because the name of the show is Castle. Didn’t you read the article about how the network made them go to couple’s counseling, and how Stana was crying because of the tension on the set?
I admit Stana is a good actrees, I can cry a lot if nobody does the things I want too LOL
All we need is a Calzona spoiler.. Any hopes of reconciliation ?? They are one of the strongest couple in the show. We all know that they are going to custody battle,but maybe they will figure out how to get back to each other… Hopefully!!
RE: Blacklist “Red will experience a betrayal at the hands of someone very unexpected”. Dear God, please tell me it is not Dembe! My heart could not take that. Maybe it is Liz’s mom who he seems to genuinely think is dead – that would at least be “unexpected”.
Perhaps the network’s use of the word “betrayal” is exaggerated, that someone close to him (perhaps Kate/Mr. Kaplan) has lied to him “for his own good” and will reveal the truth later. I thought Samar’s reaction on the street was more for the “eye in the sky” than real because, of all of them, she’s the best trained to deal with sudden death without falling apart. Liz’s “death” would likely make whoever hired Matias let down their guard a little, allowing Red to get to them. Then they can bring Liz back, hopefully in a more realistic state of mind than “I hate Red” every time things don’t go her way. Also, takes the pressure off Megan Boone so she can enjoy her real-life maternity leave.
Very heartening news that we might actually get some more of Belle. I hope that doesn’t just mean the occasional shot of her snoozing on the cot in the pawn shop. (Which was 90% of season 4, and she wasn’t even under a curse then!)
Considering we’ll probably only see a minimum of Beckett and maximum of Castle, why bother.
I won’t even take a look at an eventual Castle s9, so I don’t care if has a time jump or not. I’ll forever see s7 finale as “series finale” and pretenf s8 was just an awful and long nightmare!:-P
Ditto, Mary. It should have ended there. I agree.
Just end Castle now! Not interested in watching Beckett’s demise or Castle’s PI arc or his union with Hayley. Nothing against Toks, but with Stana and Tamala gone, so am I. I would rather live in the world of fan fiction where all characters are in tact, living and loving and fighting crime together. No Stana No Castle. End of story.

Words cannot describe how angry I am at ABC. They clearly have zero respect for Castle fans. They are no way they are clueless enough to not foresee the fan reaction. They just really don’t give a damn. They probably make syndication money out of Castle just for every ep airing. So they are willing to string it along until it’s a stinking carcass. I am not even a fan of Beckett and even I am furious.
Yes, I am surprised on how many fans on both sides of the divide (Nathan vs Stana) have come out against this move by ABC.
It’s because whether you hate one actor or another, one character or another, the fundamental fact is that the bedrock of the show has been both actors and both characters. As someone who doesn’t like Beckett, I would obviously prefer there would be well written stories focused on Castle, but I would never wish for Beckett to be removed from the show.
And I think Zoom’s kidnapping of Caitlin is going to be the first steps towards her becoming a variation of Killer Frost, either heroic with the team or villainous, betraying them.
As the love of RC’s life, there is only one way this can end. It is also the reason that Lanie had to be terminated, she would have been a constant reminder of the past.
On the other hand as I stated before, it’ll be interesting to see how much closer Rick,Javi and Ryan grower.
I missed Castle most of this season. I don’t think there is any place left for the Castle/Beckett story line to go. I don’t know where that leaves the series if it’s renewed, but it could open up interesting possibilities.
Glad to hear that we have not seen the last of Belle this season… Though could that possibly mean that we might just see her sleeping form? I’d really like to see her awake by the end of the season…
As for Castle… Possible death? Time jump? I don’t know how I feel about this. I kind of wish the show was ending this season. Eight seasons is more than a respectable run for that show…
On Orphan Black, it would sure be nice if Delphine were alive. After this season of carnage, it would certainly provide a soothing balm.
For Blacklist, I think the betrayal in question is Mister Kaplan. I think she faked Liz’s death and didn’t tell Red in order to sell the ruse.
None of the TV programs are really for the customers – they just choose what they want to present – and we are stuck with their bad taste. Consider who is usually home to watch TV — and wonder when they will provide something for them to watch!
Thanks for the scoop on Hawaii five o. This is going to be the best season finale of all I think. Just love Danny and Steve !
