Castle Sneak Peek: Brace Yourself — Kate Wants Something From Rick

It’s bad news… and then good-ish news?… for Castle‘s Rick, in this exclusive sneak peek from the ABC series.

In Monday’s episode (airing at 10/9c), after a priceless work of art is stolen and its courier murdered, Castle and Beckett work with the key witness (guest star Stephnie Weir, MADtv) to track down the painting and (literally?) sniff out the killer.

In the above clip, Kate hits pause on the investigation to deliver a gut-punch to her husband, with a request he perhaps saw coming but nonetheless dreads to hear.

But does something not quite smell right about Kate’s recent change-of-heart…? Press play to watch the sad scene unfold — as well as learn what the “silver lining” in it all might be.
