Castle Catch All.

I'm not sure I want lots of conflict added to the precinct. I like the jokey, easygoing format, and a new evil captain would work against that, unless it really is played for laughs. I don't want Castle to become earnest like CSI or super gritty like Law and Order: SVU or something (neither of which I like).

Naw, she's far too old for Legion.

The new captain has been announced.

Its Penny Johnson of 24 fame (at least to me).

I hope we're supposed to hate the new captain then. Pretty sure her stint as Sherry Palmer will forever doom her in everything ever in my eyes. She was the worst part of 24 during basically that entire run of the show.

I think they very much plan on her being a "bad guy" tot he audience. the description in the article seems to imply that pretty strongly...unless you normally cheer for the ladder climbing attention hog who hates the main characters and wants to squash their chemistry.

So I might be overanalyzing this, but I find it interesting that the article states that "will initially (emphasis mine) be more interested in getting noticed by her superiors and climbing the NYPD's ranks.."

Seems to suggest that a climactic mid-season event

Spoiler:

Captain Montgomery's notes reaching Castle?
The 3XK killer returns?

will bring her around?

Man I hated her on 24. Hate.

This will be interesting.

Son of a bitch. Or, as I said until season 4, Son of a Sherry Palmer. Well, I guess its gonna go buddy cop. I forsee a lot of "Turn in your badge, Beckett! You're off this case! I don't want to see you anywhere near _______!" God help us all if there's a character named David she must talk to.

LONGEST! HALLWAY! EVAR!

What a whole lotta nothing. Of course she's going to the hospital. Thoughts on the next season. I forsee

Spoiler:

Castle getting the Captain's notes. But instead of trying to expose whomever "He" is, I see Castle shutting himself off from the world and speed writing a book about it in order to get the info out there for all to see.

I wonder if she's gonna make it. Seriously, though. It's gotta be hard to make commercials for the upcoming season without spoiling the absolute non-spoiler that Beckett lives.

Tagging for future chat.

Dude, she is wearing a sword...at Comic Con... +10 cool points.

More specifically, she went dressed as Mal from Firefly which probably earns her +1000000 geek points (Speaking as someone who's never seen Firefly, that's my conservative guess)

The sword is from her costume of Shana Restorer of Balance, from manga Red Eyes 2.

So she had two different costumes for Comic-Con? That's a lot of dedication to cosplay.

I think any show that includes the line, "Dammit, [insert appropriate name here], don't you die on me!" should have to pay a fine of at least a dollar per cliche of the proceeding season.

Her facebook page has her photos from Comic Con and while there isn't one of her straight on as Mal, there is one of her with Pikachu.

If you need a Castle-fix to tide you over until the new season starts, you could listen to the Castle Podcast - the latest episode features interviews with several cast members including Molly Quinn and excerpts from the Comic-Con sessions.

It's a katana, not a sword (well it's a Japanese sword, which is awesome).

After a mostly boring summer, I feel like fall will bring an embarrassment of riches with college football, the NFL, cooler weather, and Castle!
