'Castle' season 8 spoilers: Espo's past relationship to be center of crime in episode 16


Season 8 of the American crime and drama television series “Castle” took a one-week break and will resume next week with some revelations from Espo’s past.

Titled “Heartbreaker,” episode 16 of the show will explore the story of Detective Javier Esposito’s (Jon Huertas) past relationship. Rick (Nathan Fillion) and Kate (Stana Katic) will be encountering a murder case that will lead them to look into Espo’s old files. However, they will learn his secret, particularly that the suspect was his past lover.

The official synopsis indicated on TV.com reads, “One of Esposito’s old cases is reexamined by Castle and Beckett because of a clue left at a crime scene involving an armored-car driver’s murder.”

On the other hand, in the promotional teaser, the clip starts off with Kate and Rick joking around, with the latter telling the former, “You, me, crime scene, just as nature intended.” After which, a stunning and eye-catching lady walks in as Rick is interrogating Espo, saying “You’re a cop, how could you follow a criminal?”

Later on, the team looks as if they are joking around about the case, as Kate even placed her hand over Rick’s mouth to prevent him from saying something. The sneak peek shows snippets of what looks like a romantic scene between Espo and the suspect, possibly something from the past, as well as some car chases. Toward the end of the trailer, Rick declares with what looks like a snicker on his face, “This is going to be so much fun.”

Meanwhile, there are rumors that season 8 will be the final run of the television series, especially after skipping an episode this week. However, there is no official word yet regarding the fate of the show. With this, fans are keeping their fingers crossed as they hope for the best. 

“Castle” season 8 will air episode 16 on April 4 at 10 P.M. EST on ABC.
