TV Line’s Fall TV Preview


PREVIOUSLY ON… | On the heels of a slightly bumpy patch — during which his lady love got kissed by a handsome stranger and stealthily pursued an out-of-town job — Rick decided he still liked it and thus sought to put a ring on it, popping the question to Kate in the final seconds of the finale.

COMING UP NEXT | “Real relationships are not compromised because one person is having success in their career,” Stana Katic notes, perhaps hinting at Beckett’s decisions regarding marriage and the D.C. job. Once those issues are resolved, the show jumps ahead a few months, where the repercussions are proving “more complicated” than expected, Katic shares. Joining the Season 6 mix, you’ve got House‘s Lisa Edelstein (appearing in three episodes as a D.C. crimesolver), Yancey Airas (above) as an elite crimefighter and The Pacific‘s Joshua Bitton (recurring as a 12th precinct newbie that Esposito and dad-to-be Ryan get to razz). “They’re willing to take storytelling risks this season – and I think we’ve got to,” Katic observes. “We’ve got to shake it up.”

TVLINE BONUS SPOILER | Beckett’s Moby Dick — the slimy Senator Bracken (played by Jack Coleman) — “will come back,” says Katic, “though I don’t know when, and I don’t know how.”

RETURN DATE | Monday, Sept. 23 at 10/9c (ABC)
