In “Limelight,” when a young pop star is found dead, Castle and Beckett delve into the victim’s out-of-control, hard-partying lifestyle. In doing so, they meet up with Chando’s troubled pop starlet, Mandy, whom series creator Andrew W. Marlowe previously described as “a Lindsay Lohan/Miley Cyrus type … somebody who has turned from America’s sweetheart into the kind of person who might twerk on MTV.”

In dealing with this case and its look at the high cost of fame, Beckett will be forced to confront her status as the bride-to-be of a popular author. Said Marlowe, “[This episode] gets Beckett to the point where she realizes she’s a private person but she’s in a relationship with somebody who’s a public person – so how does that affect them?”

Also guest-starring in the episode/featured in the photos below are Lola Glaudini (Criminal Minds) and Kelly McCreary (Emily Owens MD), as Mandy’s mother and personal assistant, respectively.
