When the ABC sleuth series Castle left off in May, homicide detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) had just started to tell her crime-solving consultant, mystery writer Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion), how she really felt about him just as the author’s ex-wife waltzed in, ready to ruin a moment. (Talk about bad timing.) Turns out the exes were en route to the Hamptons for the summer — together — leaving the newly single Beckett in a lurch. So how did this new development affect the Beckett-Castle murder team? We’ll find out when Castle returns to ABC on Monday at 10/9c (and to Hulu Tuesday morning), but a few clues have turned up in this first look at the opening of season three’s premiere.
[Spoiler Alert:] From the look of things, it appears that the ruggedly handsome author got himself into some trouble after completing his new book, Naked Heat — and rather than contacting his friends on the force, Castle kept a low profile, instead. Too bad the homicide team aren’t so understanding when they catch the amateur sleuth with a smoking gun. — Rebecca Harper (), Hulu Editor, for the Yahoo! TV Blog
