When "Castle" returns from its winter hiatus, Detective Kate Beckett will revisit someone from her fashion modeling past.
"Titanic" actress Frances Fisher will guest star on the Jan. 27 episode of the ABC procedural drama. She will play fashion mogul Matilda King in the episode, which "has a little 'Devil Wears Prada' feel to it with an Anna Wintour-type character," series creator Andrew W. Marlowe told TV Guide Magazine.
Beckett (Stana Katic) and her team will bump into King while investigating a murder. It will be revealed that the two women know each other from when Kate did modeling as a teenager in high school.
Fischer has also appeared in "Touch," "Children's Hospital" and ABC's upcoming midseason drama "Resurrection."
When the show returns in 2014, fans can also look forward to the return of 3XK (or his disciple), a Sen. Bracken and Beckett face-off and James Brolin's reprisal of his role as senior Mr. Castle.
Also, the rest of the season will include the eventual break-up of Alex and Pi and the wedding that everyone has been waiting for: the nuptials of Det. Kate Beckett and mystery writer Richard Castle.
On the last episode before the show's winter break, a baby brought up a major topic for betrothed couple Rick and Kate.
The case of the week involved a mortally wounded limo driver stumbling into a church and handing a baby boy to a priest before he dies. It turns out the victim, Cameron, a getaway driver, was involved in a lottery-rigging scheme. The victim and the lottery hostess, Miranda, were pressured into going along with it. If they refused, Miranda and her baby would die.
Cameron's boss is eventually found out, and is going to kill Miranda's husband until the 12th precinct cops show up.
Meanwhile, Rick (Nathan Fillion) takes a shine to the baby and names him "Cosmo," which would have been Alexis' (Molly C. Quinn) name had she been a boy. When it turns out that Child Services has no room during the Thanksgiving week, Rick volunteers to take care of the child.
He's pleased when Kate, who says she's not a baby person, warms up to the infant. The little boy brings up the question if the couple will have children of their own.
Andrew Marlowe said the next episode will put Castle and Beckett in the spotlight, and will cause Beckett to reflect on what it means to be with someone high profile.
"We have some fun coming up in episode 11," Marlowe teased. "It puts Castle and Beckett in a world in which the spotlight is very bright. And we examine what it does to people. And I think it makes Beckett reflect on what it means to be with a guy who is in the public eye. So that's really fun."
Watch the promo for episode 11, which airs Monday, Jan. 6, 2014 on ABC.
