Michael Dorn to Portray Therapist on Castle

at . Comments

The shooting of Kate Beckett on the third season finale of Castle didn't simply open up a wound on this detective. It will force her to open up emotionally, as well.

TV Guide reports that former Star Trek: The Next Generation star Michael Dorn will appear on at least two episodes of the ABC hit this fall as Beckett's police department-mandated therapist.

The sessions between doctor and client will "dredge up a whole bunch of stuff," producer Laurie Zaks says, adding that Beckett and Castle's connection will become a focus: "Her conversations will enlighten how the relationship will move forward to whatever that next level is."

Moreover, look for Beckett to realize she has to "let go or deal with how her mother died," Zaks previews, considering the unsolved case of her mom's murder is what landed Kate on the psychologist's couch, and in the hospital, in the first place.

Castle returns with new episodes on September 19 and Dorn will debut on the season premiere.

Castle Quotes

I can't help it if you got off by putting things in my mouth.

Beckett

Castle: They're going to kill you Kate, and if you don't care about that, please think about how that's going to affect the people who love you. You really want to put your dad through that? What about Josh?
Beckett: And what about you Rick?
Castle: Well of course I don't want anything to happen to you. I'm your partner, I'm your friend.
Beckett: Is that what we are?
Castle: You know what? I don't know what we are. We kiss and then we never talk about it. We nearly die frozen in each others arms, but we never talk about it. So no, I got no clue what we are. I know I don't want to see you throw your life away.
