10 pm Castle (ABC) | When a lothario is killed, Castle and Beckett suspect that the victim’s mysterious double life holds the key to his murder. Their investigation leads to a shocking twist that threatens to disrupt Ryan and Jenny’s wedding. “It’s a fun episode,” says series boss Andrew H. Marlowe, “because some secrets are revealed about the Ryan/Jenny relationship that are a lot of fun, and of course we touch on the Lanie/Esposito relationship as well.” And Rick and Kate? Might they get ideas about finally acting on their feelings…? “Oh, I think that every time you have a wedding episode… it’s a chance for everybody to take stock of their relationship,” Marlow teases.
