Castle Deleted Scene: Beckett Solves BFF Lanie's 'Deathly' Problem

Kate Beckett feels out a foe and and then problem-solves for a friend in a deleted scene from the eighth and final season of ABC’s Castle.

In the episode “Dead Again,” Jonathan Silverman winningly guest-starred as a mild-mannered city safety inspector who repeatedly is declared dead… only to rejoin the living. In the clip above, Beckett (played by Stana Katic) trades pleasantries with public defender Caleb Brown (Kristofer Polaha) — all while secretly suspecting he has ties to LokSat — before the matter of Lanie’s (Tamala Jones) premature declaration problem arises.

Press play above to watch Kate help her beleaguered BFF make things right, in one of the deleted scenes included on Castle: The Complete Eighth Season (out Tuesday, Aug. 23).

In addition to all 22 episodes from what would be the show’s final season, the DVD set also features two audio commentaries (Nathan Fillion and guest star Adam Baldwin talk “Cool Boys,” while Jon Huertas, Seamus Dever and writer Barry O’Brien revisit “Heartbreaker”), bloopers and a featurette in which the cast’s detective skills are tested by a puzzle room a la Season 8’s “The Blame Game.”
