Can we get a fist pump for Friday?!

Oops, wrong show. But it’s Friday, which means we’re one step closer to the weekend. And one step closer to an all-new Castle. We might’ve had a slight hiatus (thanks, Barack and Mitt), but the start of next week is almost here, and we can barely contain ourselves.

Monday’s nailbiter has all eyes on Castle, and no, it’s not because of a new book in the Nikki Heat series. Castle’s been arrested for murder, and Beckett’s seen crying over something. Break out the tissues (or wine), people. This one’s going to be good.

Check out our wish list for Castle Season 5, Episode 5: “Probable Cause.”  

1. Castle’s Being Framed!

Next week’s murder centers around the ritualistic-style killing of a woman, and all of the fingerprints at the scene of the crime were wiped down except for one: Richard Castle’s.

While we can believe that Castle would have forgotten to put on his gloves before entering the room, we can’t help but scratch our heads that Castle could pull of something this sophisticated, period. Since the promos capture Rick’s more-than-stunned face as the detectives uncover additional evidence linking him to the crime, we think that someone out there is looking to bring Castle down by setting him up.

Isn’t there someone out there who holds a massive grudge against Castle?

2. Castle’s Albi Is Beckett-Related

During the promo clip, Beckett asks Castle where he was Friday night, and Castle quickly asks for his lawyer. Maybe his alibi is somehow related to Beckett. Was she with him and is having to play coy about the whole situation? Was he out paying a sky-writer to have “I LUV BECKETT” written as a surprise? Could he have been scouring the city for her favorite box of chocolates to have with dinner? 

We understand that anything he says will go on-record and most likely be seen by Captain “Iron” Gates. If it is somehow linked to Beckett, we just hope they can find a way out of it, stat.    

3. Beckett Doesn’t Wait Until the Very End to Believe Castle

This is all contingent on No. 1 being true, but keep the faith, Kate. Yes, your boyfriend is accused of a sadistic crime, and all possible roads are leading in him. And no, you don’t know that much about his past. Oh, heavens. 

But it’s Castle. That cute, cuddly crime writer who is trying so hard to sweep you off your feet. And if the shoe was on the other foot, he would be the one offering you a lifeline by standing firm that you didn’t do it. So, like we said, keep the faith. If all goes south, we’ll at least share our wine with you.
