"Pretty Dead" - During rehearsal for "Baron’s All-American Beauty Pageant," the contestants are shocked to discover the body of Miss Illinois - strangled, but by whom? As Castle and Beckett delve into the cut-throat competition of the pageant world, they learn that a number suspects had motive for murder, including jealous fellow contestants, the pageant’s larger-than-life millionaire sponsor, Victor Baron (Michael McKean, "Curb Your Enthusiasm"), and the show’s host — hedonistic TV personality, Bobby Stark (Sasha Roiz, "Caprica") — on "Castle," MONDAY, MAY 9 (10:01-11:00 p.m. ET) on the ABC Television Network.
"Castle" stars Nathan Fillion as Richard Castle, Stana Katic as NYPD Detective Kate Beckett, Susan Sullivan as Martha Rodgers, Molly Quinn as Alexis Castle, Ruben Santiago-Hudson as NYPD Captain Roy Montgomery, Tamala Jones as Medical Examiner Lanie Parish, Jon Huertas as NYPD Detective Javier Esposito, and Seamus Dever as NYPD Detective Kevin Ryan.
Guest Cast: Michael McKean as Victor Baron, Sasha Roiz as Bobby Stark, Teri Polo as Kayla Baron, Ken Baumann as Ashley, Arye Gross as M.E. Perlmutter, Bellamy Young as Candace Ford, Jonathan Slavin as Justin Hankel.
"Pretty Dead" was written by Terri Miller and directed by Jeff Bleckner.
why did beckett's badge number change from 41319 to 0334? or are they different types of badges or something?
It may just be a mistake by the show. Here’s what IMDb says about it: “Continuity: In the episode “Suicide Squeeze,” Beckett says over the phone that her badge number is 41319. However in the same episode and other episodes her badge is clearly visible and has the number 0334.”
Being an avid Castle fan, I am dying for more news about the finale. I know Andrew Marlowe has said Castle and Beckett will not be getting together this season (and probably not next season) but PLEASE, PLEASE tell me he won’t end the season with the one or both of them going off with someone else. I think the writers do a fantastic job playing “cat and mouse” but to me that would make everything that has happened in the back half of season three a complete charade and I would feel cheated. Appreciate any and all scoop — G
I think Marlowe and Co. know what their bread and butter is. That much I can say. As far as the finale, if I were you, I’d be expecting a major game-changer.
Coming up on May 2, Castle and Beckett head west to solve crime and mingle with the stars (Gene Simmons!) in Hollywood.
"To Love and Die in LA" sends a renegade Beckett to Los Angeles in order to investigate the murder of a former partner. So of course Castle has to come too. His excuse is the Heat Wave movie, whose cast manages to get involved in the case as well.
