7 Things to Know About Castle’s Season 7 Premiere
When we last checked in on almost-weds Rick Castle and Kate Beckett, things had taken a turn for the worse.
On his way to the wedding of our dreams, Castle’s car was cruelly driven off the road where Kate discovered it moments later, engulfed in flames.
Is Rick dead? What about the wedding? And what’s all this about the show taking a new direction this season?
Having reviewed the premiere episode, courtesy of our friends at ABC, we can finally dish on some of those questions. Here, in no particular order are 5 things to know about Castle’sseason seven premiere episode “Driven.”
What Happens Next?
We’ve been specifically asked by ABC not to reveal what happened to Castle but trust us, you won’t want to be spoiled on that front. Beckett’s search for her husband to be forms the backbone of this mile a minute episode and sets up some really juicy plot lines for the rest of the season. What we can tell you is that she almost goes up in flames too while attempting to drag Rick from that burning wreckage. That wedding dress won’t be walking down any aisles any time soon. Also, Castle will be missing for two months before real answers are revealed.
And if the thought of Castle’s mangled body in twisted burning metal hasn’t sufficiently freaked you all out, you’ll be treated to a double whammy of horrible car death terror before the opening credits roll. Well done Castle!
Friends and Family
Although Kate is driven (geddit?) to find Castle at any cost, Agent Connors of the FBI reluctantly suggests that friends or even family may be behind Rick’s kidnap plot. Although Kate is reluctant to believe or accept this possibility, what she uncovers will shake her to the core. And speaking of cores, our delicate Caskett core was kicked about and trampled on quite a bit this episode. Prepare to be confused, angry and demanding of answers, dammit!
A Difference of Opinion
The search for Rick not only rattles Kate, but Ryan and Esposito too. Our favorite cop buddies fall out during their two month investigation when they are challenged to accept a hard truth about Rick.
Outside the Bounds of the Law
Expect to see Kate leaning on a witness (read breaking some fingers) to get at the answers she desperately craves. Ouch!
We’re not saying, but you will be all at sea over his sudden return.
It looks like Rick’s disappearance was by the hand of a new villain with “unlimited resources” … and quite an imagination!
Castle’s season 7 premiere “Driven” airs Monday Sept. 29 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET/PT) on ABC.

TVLine has learned exclusively that on the heels of a drama-filled opening salvo of Season 7 episodes, ABC’s Castle will lighten things up with an “alternate reality” escapade that poses the provocative question: What if Rick and Kate had never met?
The specifics of what tees up this season’s reality-twisting sixth episode are under wraps, but series regular Jon Huertas, who plays Detective Javier Esposito, says it his favorite installment of the upcoming run.
Seeing as the season opens with the mystery of Rick’s “death” and what really happened to him, uncorking a new piece of mythology along the way, “The first couple [episodes] can’t bring too much comedy,” Huertas tells TVLine. “But this ‘alternate universe’ is classic Castle, where you mix a great procedural crime with comedy.”
Huertas says the hour will imagine “a completely different world” where all of the major characters exist, but in rejiggered ways. “It was a lot of fun, getting into that script and seeing how we might all be a bit different,” he shares. “It’s a really fun episode, and people are really going to enjoy it. It’s one of those episodes where you have to laugh.”
Alternate reality episodes of course are nothing new to TV — ABC’s Grey’s Anatomyitself has employed the narrative device twice, The Big Bang Theory last winter contemplated Sheldon’s non-existence and, going back further, Friends, Buffy andFelicity are among the many that have staged “What If” episodes. And then you have one of my favorites, Star Trek‘s “Mirror, Mirror.” (“In every revolution, there is one man with a vision!”) Still, I would posit that “alt reality” outings are never notentertaining, and sometimes even illuminating.
What are your predictions for Castle‘s own “alt reality” hour? What if Kate Beckett had never turned to mystery novelist Richard Castle to help solve a string of murders that aped his novels?
“Driven” – In the Season 6 finale, as Richard Castle drove to his much-anticipated nuptials, an ominous black SUV bore down on him. Meanwhile, after waiting in vain for Castle to arrive at the wedding, Beckett was called to an accident scene to find Castle’s car in a ravine, engulfed in flames. Who or what caused the car crash? Is there any way Castle could have survived? The episode will pick-up at the scene of that accident, right where the finale left off, in a premiere that promises to put Beckett through the toughest case of her career. Season 7 of “Castle” begins on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET/PT) on the ABC Television Network.
