Tonight is an all new episode of Castle on ABC at 10PM EST, titled Headhunters. This episode will see Nathan Fillion’s character, Rick Castle, joined by his former Firefly castmate Adam Baldwin — who plays Detective Ethan Slaughter.
In tonight’s episode, Rick joins a cop [Ethan] from New York’s gang unit. Apparently, Rick is moving further and further away from Kate after learning that she remembered everything about her shooting. At the time, he didn’t want to lose her and he professed his love for her.
Since, Kate has been talking to Lanie about how to finally open up to Rick about her feelings for him. Just as she was going to talk to him, Rick pulls up with a blonde in his car.
Check out the official synopsis of tonight’s show:
With tensions rising between Castle and Beckett, Castle finds himself a new partner — Detective Ethan Slaughter, a tough and colorful cop from the city’s gang unit. But Castle gets more than he bargained for when Slaughter shows him a grittier side of police work that puts Castle in the line of fire like never before.
I wish Kate would just tell Rick how she feels about him already. Are they going to drag this out more than it needs to be? Are we going to have to wait until the show’s fifth season to see some real sparks between Rick and Kate?
