News is beginning to leak about the "Castle" Season 4 finale. These bits of information can be pieced together with what has been going on in the last few weeks and what happened in last year's finale to get an idea about what might occur in the final episode. If the past season finales can be used as a guide, viewers will be taken on a ride during the episode and left with a possible cliffhanger into Season 5.
Rick and Kate will find out that the murder they are investigating during the final episode will be connected to the detective's mother's murder. Judith Scott will return as Captain Montgomery's widow while Tahmoh Penikett will play the role of Cole Maddox in the Season 4 finale. Not very much has been released about his character other than he has a military background and will be cold and calculated. He will have a reoccurring role in the future as long as the show is renewed for another season.
Assumptions About Penikett's Character
Penikett's character should be assumed to have some type of connection to Beckett's mother's murder. Either he would be on the side of the conspirators or assisting the mysterious character who helped to lead Rick in the right direction in the past with the infamous murder investigation. If he is going to be a reoccurring character, fans have to figure that he is a key character who could lead the duo of investigators in the future.
Rick and Kate
There has been a role reversal in the last few weeks. Instead of Rick chasing after Kate, she has been chasing after him. The season finale would be a perfect time for them to make a major connection. In the Season 3 finale, Rick told Kate that he loved her while she was fading after being shot. It would be fitting for her to return the profession of love to the writer in the Season 4 finale.
What Has Not Been Told
Around this point last year, the announcement was made that one of the characters on the show would not make it through the Season 3 finale. The goal of the announcement was to get more of a buzz going about the episode so more people would tune in. An announcement was not made about a character passing this year, so we should not expect a recycling of one of the "gotcha" moments from last year. Unless an announcement comes out about a major character getting axed, fans should not speculate about who might be on the chopping block.
