‘Castle’ Season 8 Finale Promo Hints Kate Beckett Will Die as Stana Katic Exits


Stana Katic’s recently-announced exit from Castle left fans with one huge question: what will happen to Kate Beckett?

Well, the promo for next week’s Season 8 finale hints ABC’s favorite police captain might end up dead.

The promo opens ominously as a mystery man tells Rick Castle “Kate Beckett is going to be dead by the end of the night, and there’s nothing you can do about it.”

It feels like the baddie is talking more to the #Caskett shippers than to Nathan Fillion’s alter-ego, who’s being held captive.

Things don’t get better as the apparent villain continues, “Everything ends in tragedy — even an epic love story like yours.”

The finale episode will put Captain Beckett and her husband directly in the “Crossfire” — the hour’s aptly-named title — as they go up against the season’s major puppet master: LokSat.

Unfortunately, the official synopsis doesn’t make it sound like the couple’s going to make it out unscathed as “an unforeseen twist puts their case — and their lives — in jeopardy.”

Good luck, Kate — we hope you don’t end up in the growing television graveyard with Abbie Mills!

Castle airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on ABC.
