When we last left Castle, he had been run off the road by someone driving an SUV… leaving Beckett to find his flaming car.
When the show returns, fans of the series will be happy to know that Castle isn’t dead, now was it even a suggested plot point. The new showrunner for the series spoke to TVGuide and said that the perpetrator was a characters that fans haven’t seen before, and it won’t be Bracken or 3XK.
“The mythology we’re getting into is going to go past all that into some new territory,” David Amann said. “Those are all fair game, but it’s not going to be what the opening of the season is about.” Instead, look for this ordeal to unearth details about Castle that perhaps the mystery novelist never even knew about himself. And how will Beckett react to the revelations? “Things that are going to come to light that are going to be unsettling for Beckett,” Amann teases. “But we’re committed to that relationship. She loves this guy. These are things that are part of who he is. I don’t think what happened to Castle is going to disrupt the trajectory of that relationship, at least not in the long term.”
