First Look: Castle's Ex Marks Her Spot! Plus: GH Vets Jack Wagner and Nancy Lee Grahn Visit

Castle‘s Rick and Kate will have their hands full — personally and professionally — judging by this batch of photos from the ABC drama’s next new episode airing Jan. 7.

On the homefront, Rick gets a visit from ex-wife Meredith, who crashes at his place at the same time Kate is bunking there (while her apartment is fumigated). As show boss Andrew Marlowe shares in this week’s Ask Ausiello column, since Rick and the “Deep-Fried Twinkie” (played by Scandal‘s Darby Stanchfield) have a pattern of “ex sex,” ”Castle has kind of dug his own grave and spends the episode trying to dig himself out!”

Meanwhile, at work, Beckett and her team get caught in the middle of a War of the Roses-esque squabble starring General Hospital‘s Nancy Lee Grahn and Big Love alum Brendan Ford, while GH/Melrose Place vet Jack Wagner guests as a pro golfer whose wife turns up dead.

  • Great pics! I can’t wait to see this episode. If Beckett still has worries, I think it’s going to show her that Castle is totally committed to her. And even if his ex-wife is going to crash the party, I still love the idea of Castle and Beckett shacking up! :-)

  • Looks like a whole lot of breakage will be going on!! Let’s hope none of that spills over to the Castle loft.

  • The acting school that these two went to should be getting royalties or something. How can they look so deeply in love with just looking at each other like that and it is called acting. Come on!!!!!!!!
