CASTLE - (ABC/ADAM TAYLOR) NATHAN FILLION, LYLE LOVETT, STANA KATIC

Country singer and songwriter, Lyle Lovett is making an appearance on Castle tonight (10:00 p.m. ET/PT, ABC).

Lovett is starring as Darryl Shafer, a mysterious government agent intent on shutting down a murder investigation that Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Detective Beckett (Stana Katic) are working on.

The story revolves around the death of an astrophysicist, whose body is found in her car. And get this, she’s the victim of explosive decompression (sounds just awful…and messy).

There are only two possible causes for that sort of death: Either she was killed in a decompression chamber or she died in the vacuum of space. Since the second seems unlikely, Castle and Beckett focus their investigation on the ground.

Unfortunately, all the evidence keeps leading them back to the impossible…alien abduction. And it’s Lovett’s character that keeps getting in the way to protect National Security. So, of course, the three of them begin working together to solve the mystery.

Just makes sense, huh?
