Last night's episode of Castle featured One Tree Hill actress Hilarie Burton as we've never seen her before — Kay Cappuccio is certainly no Peyton Sawyer!

"An Embarrassment of Bitches" was directed by Tom Wright, with whom Hilarie had previously worked on some of the more emotional and dramatic scenes of OTH.

"I figured, 'Oh, it's Tom! Maybe this is like a really dramatic character and I'm going to have to shed some tears,'" she tells Entertainment Tonight. "And then I opened it up and I read it."

As we all saw last night, Kay is the quintessential Hollywood socialite with "no discernible talent" (Beckett's words, not ours), and although she's more kindhearted than we initially give her credit for, she's still pretty one-dimensional. And it certainly doesn't help that she has no idea what "corporate espionage" means.

"It scared me because it's very much out of my wheelhouse," Hilarie admits. "I don't think I've ever played the 'hot chick' before."

So, how did Hilarie do as Castle's cleavage-baring, Chihuahua-toting 'hot chick' Kay Cappuccio? Vote in our poll below and then join the conversation on Facebook!
