Adam Baldwin to Return in S8 of ‘Castle’

Good news for Firefly fans and longtime fans of Castle: EW reports that Adam Baldwin will be returning as Detective Ethan Slaughter for one episode in the upcoming eighth season. No details have been given on what brings the rough Slaughter, last seen in a season four episode (“Headhunters”) in which Castle did a ride-along with him, back into contact with Castle and company, but he’s slated to appear early in the season.

With other spoilery news about Beckett’s new role having come out recently (see details at the EW link if you’d like to know more!), it could be interesting to speculate how Castle and Beckett will interact with the crude-mouthed Slaughter this time around. Any theories?

Castle returns on Monday, September 21, at 10pm on ABC.
