If you’re like us, your head is still spinning from the promo for Castle Season 5, Episode 15: "Target." The first of the two-part episode meets us with tragedy as little Alexis Castle is kidnapped, leaving Rick in a mess of tears.

Whoa. Why would anyone want to abduct Alexis? Are they after Castle? Will they kill Alexis? We can’t deal!

The promo leaves few clues as to whether or not she survives her captors, but we definitely see Rick in an emotional mess, as any loving dad would be. It appears that the abduction happened while she was on the phone, possibly with dad as we hear him tell her “get out of there." Then, we get a shot of Alexis in the dark, via someone’s night vision goggles. Creepy...

Finally, there’s a glimmer of horror, as Beckett tries to keep a panic-stricken Castle away from a van containing something he shouldn’t see, at the end of the promo. Is it Alexis? Is it weapons the kidnappers used on Castle’s little girl? We don’t know what’s in store for the Castle clan, but we’re certain we’ll be tuned in to find out.

What do you think fans — will Alexis Castle die in Castle Season 5, Episode 15: “Target”?
