Monday the 13th is Castle sleuth Kate Beckett’s lucky day, as she will finally meet her intended’s father.

Sort of.

In the ABC drama’s Jan. 13 episode, “Deep Cover,” the murder of a video store clerk leads Beckett & Co. to the man sometimes known as Jackson Hunt (returning guest star James Brolin). But as reported elsewhere and confirmed by TVLine, when Kate meets Rick’s spook-y pop, he’ll be using a pseudonym and only Rick will know who this silver fox truly is.

Brolin told AntennaFree.TV that with this encore he hoped to present “the complete other side of this character, the one you might be afraid of.” And along those lines, series creator Andrew W. Marlowe told us that as the episode plays out, “Castle begins to wonder whether he can trust this mysterious stranger.”

  • Last night’s episode was intense. I have a feeling this episode might be as similarly amazing.

  • I’m looking forward to this one a lot. Big fan of Brolin and will enjoy seeing him share a few scenes with Beckett. on a side note is it just me or did Ms Katic take a few extra gorgeous pills over the break, she’s is looking even more stunning then usual. it’s really not far to the rest of us plebs

  • Castle may be disillusioned about his dad after this and Kate might have to give him some comfort(how about real comfort!)? The Jackson Hunt/Martha scene should be intense. Cannot wait.

    • Are we sure there will be a Martha/Hunt scene?

    • Can’t wait for the Jan. 13th episode either. This past Monday’s episode was great. Looking forward to Martha’s reaction to seeing Rich’s dad. I read where his character is not all good. Hmm

    • I’m really hoping Beckett and Castle have a heart-to-heart tonight about his father, where she comforts him or at least explains how he’s not at all like his father — and that that’s a great thing. If not, it’ll be another missed opportunity.

      • Amen to that. I could see them going either way with it, but I’m hoping there’s at least some scene addressing how they’re different.

  • Man, with his hair slicked back and the beard Brolin reminds me a bit of how Barry Bostwick last time I saw him on TV.

    • Nah. He looks like Steven Kiley, just older. LOL

  • after last night disastrous ratings, how much life this show has?

    • Last night’s ratings had a lot to do with the BCS National Championship being on. It got huge ratings and was a close game. I think castles DVR rating will go up alot this week. Last night’s ep was awesome.

    • That comment indicates you are not very well aware of the current situation of Network tv ratings. Castle had one bad night. For many other shows this “disasterous” rating is a norm (like ABC shows Revenge, OUATIW, Nashville alone)
      Castle is far from danger.

      • The ratings were lousy across the board, and yet, Castle drew the largest viewers for the night outside of the BCS.

        • Castle will be around Revenge and Nashville numbers, 1.5, very soon. I see it coming. This season YOU will see it too.

  • Wow. “Two very ruggedly handsome men in one room” alert. It looks like one hell of a ride!
