There’s a new boss lady in NYC and she’s anything but nice! According to Michael Ausiello of TV Line, the new captain of the 12th precinct is tough as (final) nails.

Apparently, the new girl in town “cut her teeth in Internal Affairs and views the captain’s chair as nothing more than a stepping-stone to a bigger, more prominent job.”

That’s right: She’s totally using the 12th precinct for her own selfish benefit. But that hardly means she’s not gonna take ish seriously. Ausiello says, she’s been known to be “a bit of a hard-ass to her co-workers,” but can also be “fun and flirtatious.”

Can we just go out on a limb here and guess at least some of that flirtatious energy will be directed toward Richard Castle? We mean, we hardly blame the girl — but we think Kate Beckett might!
