Castle’s Stana Katic Says to Expect a More “Lethal” Kate Beckett in Season 5
Kate Beckett has always possessed that unique combination of sexiness and strength, but according to Castle star Stana Katic, you haven't seen anything yet!
In an interview with TV Guide, Stana revealed that Beckett's going to be more "lethal" than ever because "she's thinking more clearly."
In the past, before she knew the identity of the man who ordered the hit on her mom, Detective Beckett was driven solely by intense emotion and revenge. In fact, that's what inspired her to become a cop in the first place — her unrelenting desire to bring down the Dragon.
But that was prior to her little chat with Senator Bracken in Castle's Season 5 premiere. Smacking him in the face and vowing to take him down the ethical way was liberating enough — for now, anyway — to give Beckett the freedom she needed to move on. And into a relationship with Rick Castle!
However, the book on Johanna Beckett's murder isn't closed yet. "There's a certain amount of closure," Stana says, "but it doesn't mean that the tale is done."
And when the other shoe drops — which it always does — Beckett will be ready.
"She's become more dangerous to the bad guys," she added.
