My nostalgia for Murder, She Wrote
knows no bounds -- childhood evenings, watching TV with my decidedly un-cool parents, when Jessica Fletcher would solve crimes in the most dangerous small town Maine ever saw... Good times...
Fortunately, my nostalgia is being rewarded in Castle
season 5. According to TVLine
, a little bit of that old crime drama will come into play in episode 5, "Murder, He Wrote." The plot for the episode involves the murder of a person whose testimony led to insider-trading convictions. Castle and Beckett will also have to deal with a bumbling police chief and his assistant. Also, a suspect will jump overboard.

might be restful. Caroline Lagerfelt -- who played the

through last season -- will guest star in an October episode of Castle
Lagerfelt will play the character of Angelica Henley, the wealthy, socialite employer of a murder victim. So it's not much of a stretch from her Gossip Girl
role.A Killer News StoryEW.com
reports that the second episode of Castle
season 5 will revolve around a murder at a local news station. When the station's weather girl is found dead, her possible involvement in an office romance might be to blame.

As we previously reported
, Jack Coleman will guest star in Castle
's fifth season as a political figure who antagonizes Detective Kate Beckett. But of course there's more to the story than that. TVLine
quotes executive producer Andrew Marlowe's revealing statement on the character: "I can say that Jack Coleman plays somebody who has some knowledge about what may have gone on back in the day with Montgomery and may have some information as to what actually went on with Kate's mother's murder."Castle
