When we last saw Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic), the two stars of ABC's procedural drama Castle, the two were looking pretty cozy. And by 'pretty cozy,' I mean that they were on their way to the bedroom to solve a few off-screen mysteries. The two, who had previously shared a will-they-won't-they relationship comparable only to the relationship between Booth and Bones on FOX's Bones, finally consummated their sexually tense relationship.
And, if the season 4 finale had also been the series finale, we could have been assured a happily ever after between the two. But the show was renewed for a fifth season, which means, naturally, that the two can't just be happy without having their relationship pushed to the limit.
The second episode of season 5, the horribly titled "Cloudy with a Chance of Murder" (seriously, guys?), will introduce a new character to the mix: WHNY entertainment reporter Kristina Coterra, who develops quite the interest in Castle. And, as television has taught us, there is no force like a reporter spurned.
Coterra will be played by Prison Break alum Jodi Lyn O'Keefe, according to The Hollywood Reporter. O'Keefe is best known for playing villainess Gretchen Morgan on the FOX prison series, though she also had a starring role on Nash Bridges from 1996 to 2001. Her recent credits include guest appearances on LOST, Law & Order: L.A., and The Finder.
It's unknown whether or not O'Keefe's role will continue beyond "Cloudy with a Chance of Murder." What do you think? Do you like the idea of Beckett having to compete for Castle's affections, or do you think it's time the two just had a happily ever after?
Castle will return for its fifth season September 24 on ABC.
