Svetlana Renkov (as Emily Foxler)
Hank Harper


Perhaps partially annoyed by Alexis's ever-present lover-house-guest Pi's health food obsession, Castle is ready to move to DC so he can be with Becket again. For now, he's torn between loyalty to his own curiosity and the NYPD boys, who are breaking in junior detective Grant 'Sully' Sullivan, expecting he gets information from Becket, and her need to preserve mandatory secrecy when the FBI is ordered to take over a New York murder without specifying the 'national security' aspect. Victim Charlie Reynolds, a has been high-school soap star whom Ryan adores openly, had a complex relationship with co-star Ramon Russo, now an acting teacher, who hoped to return to the screen as the series was promised a movie revival. New co-star Svetlana Renkov,d daughter of a Russian mob king, is key to the money behind film and criminal hidden agenda. Written by KGF Vissers

Kevin Ryan: Mm-hmm.
Grant 'Sully' Sullivan: And according to Interpol, all of them got criminal records back in the motherland. Assault, murder, all kinds of bad stuff.

talk about the first 3 episodes, main story plot.

THIS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS if you haven't seen the first 3 episodes.I didn't mind them stretching their legs so to speak for Stana/Beckett, with dealing with Washington D.C.

However having her race for an antidote was something I liked because instead of her being in peril it was him, she never really had to worry about really and truly saving him.

Then finally she loses her job with the federal task force, hopefully she's permanently in new York. and eventually gets her job back with in the next few episodes. HOPEFULLY. thanks for reading.

I hope with in the season that Beckett and castle get married, at least by the end of the season, that would be OK, it would work pretty well. I would also have Beckett be pregnant. the babies due date would be December 25. So she would need to be pregnant by April I believe, and there you could have her and Lanie have a couple of episodes mostly about her being pregnant??????????? maybe. just throwing an ideal out there.
