We are still a couple of months away from the season 4 premiere, but scoop about the fallout following that explosive cliffhanger in the season 3 finale is starting to arrive. Ausiello has revealed today that the first episode of the upcoming fourth season will be entitled “Rise”. Pretty suggestive title for a show that ended its third season with a major character getting shot in the chest by a professional killer, right?
It’s obvious that Detective Kate Beckett will eventually be okay, but the most important thing we should focus on is how she will deal with the consequences of the events that took place during “Knockout”. Ausiello has also hinted that two characters will “come to blows in the opening minutes” of the season premiere. Given that the episode is supposed to pick up not long after Kate was shot – according to Castle‘s creator Andrew W. Marlowe – things will be pretty intense from the get go. If I had to venture a guess at who those two characters might be, I would say that it is going to be Castle and Josh at the hospital. However, that just might be the shipper in me holding on to positive thinking.
So what do you guys think those two mysterious characters might be? And what are your thoughts on the season 4 premiere title?
Castle is scheduled to return with its fourth season on September 19th on ABC.
