This week we have spoilers for: 'Castle,' 'Dexter,' 'Gossip Girl,' 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Lost,' 'NCIS,' 'Smallville' and 'Ugly Betty.'
- The show is planning an episode that is inspired by NBC's recent late-night war. The episode, titled 'The Late Shaft' and set to air on April 12, will start 'Dancing with the Stars'' Tom Bergeron as Bobby Mann, a late-night talk show host who gets permanently shut up (aka killed). The prime suspect, to be played by Bill Bellamy, is his would-be successor, a rival chatterbox who's long coveted the victim's timeslot. Fred Willard will play Bobby Mann's sidekick, French Steward will be a Pellicano-esque investigator, Kelly Carlson will play a love interest for Castle and Dan Cortese as the network president tasked with managing the scandal. Carlson's role is that of actress Ellie Rose and her character will meet Castle on the set of the late-night talk show hosted by Bobby Mann. The two will hit it off, prompting a jealous Beckett to suspect that the starlet is only interested in Castle because she covets a role in the forthcoming movie version of his book, Heat Wave.

- Navi Rawat will play Rachel Walters, a mummification expert who crosses paths with Beckett and Castle when the Natural History Museum's assistant curator is found murdered. Rachel informs the team that the assistant curator, Will Medina, might have been cursed because he disturbed ancient Mayan tombs to create the museum's newest exhibit. Rachel also catches Castle nosing through some coffins in the museum, prompting Becket to tease Castle about the curse. Castle refuses to believe her until he suffers his own near-death experience. The episode, titled 'Wrapped Up in Death,' will air on April 5. [Source: TV Guide Online]
- Don't expect a time jump between last season's finale and the next season premiere. Fans will be able to grieve the tragic loss of Rita and we will see how Dexter responds to his world being turned upside-down. We'll discover that it changes things between Dexter and Deb now that she knows the Ice Truck Killer was his real brother. Dexter will have to come to terms with what Rita's death means for both his stepchildren, Cody and Astor, and their infant son, Harrison. Newlyweds Batista and Laguerta are not already done. Dexter won't automatically be cleared of all wrongdoing in Rita's death. The focus of next season will be turned back on to Dexter and his internal struggle with everything going on.
