As if the fact that the ABC's hit show Castle returns tonight didn't already have the fandom in a frenzy over the resolution of the explosive season 3 finale cliffhanger, the Alphabet Network has just released the promotional photos for the third episode of season 4, entitled "Head Case".
In this episode, Castle and Beckett will be dealing with a rather unusual case as, apparently, there is no victim. There is blood, a fleeing van and gunshots, but when they arrive at the murder scene, the body is nowhere to be found. The investigation leads to the cutting-edge world of life-extension science, a cunning high-tech researcher and a sleazy porn mogul who invested in a modern-day "fountain of youth."
Veteran actor, William Atherton, will play Dr. Ari Weiss, a "life-extension researcher" who has dedicated most of his work to the study of cryogenic freezing - as reported a couple weeks ago by TV Guide. In "Head Case" we also find out if Alexis Castle gets into Stanford (and follow her boyfriend Ashley to the west coast) or not. It is time to place your bets, Castle fans. Personally, I doubt that even if she does get in, she is not leaving her dad behind after such traumatic events.
Also, I have to comment that I am loving this new, more casual wardrobe for Beckett. It's a breather from her usual too serious, business like outfits. Not to mention that the new look suits her better. What do you think?
Castle returns tonight with an all new season at 10pm on ABC. While you're waiting, don't forget to check out the promotional photos, sneak peeks and teaser for tonight's episode "Rise", and the promotional photos for next week's episode "Heroes & Villains".
