When Stana Katic visited New York City last week to talk up Castle as well as her retro movie CBGB, TVLine didn’t dare miss a chance to seek out her take on the dissolution of Kate Beckett’s sweet D.C. gig and the next issue to face the “Caskett” engagement.

Already in the latest episode of Spoiler Alert! (embedded below), Katic covered the topic of Kate jumping right back into the NYPD (…or not). Here now is more from that conversation.

TVLINE | If Kate does wind up back at the NPD, would there be any “adjustment,” since Ryan and Esposito have kind of been “large and in charge” since she left?
It’s called “separation anxiety.” [Laughs] She has had a long period of being a valuable member of that team, so I’m sure that that group would benefit from having her back, because nobody in that group really functions as well as they do when everyone is together. I don’t know if the boys necessarily realize that, or think that, right away, but we’ll see./>

TVLINE | That’s funny, because when I spoke to Jon [Huertas] and Seamus [Dever] at the start of the season, they both made a point of saying that the boys would be “doing fine” without Beckett.
They get more lines! [Laughs] That’s what it is./>

TVLINE | Is Kate deflated at all, having been fired by McCord? Does she feel like this D.C. thing was ultimately a failure? That she was a failure?
Being fired from [the federal task force] is tough, because it was a dream job. And now I think the biggest deal for her — because she’s kind of defined herself by always fighting for the weak, fighting for the victim, fighting for justice — is that she’s left out in Nowhereland. She has nothing to attach herself to [and] she’s kind of not sure where she stands with things because she’s defined herself so much by [her job]./>

TVLINE | What are she and Rick going to do about living arrangements? They don’t get to enjoy that shiny new D.C. apartment….
I know. And I thought that was a really sweet moment, for the two of them./>

TVLINE | …and as you have previously noted, Rick’s place these days is “like Union Station.”
Yeah, there’s a lot of traffic going through it. They’ll be dealing with the living situation, mingling their space, later on down the road, but this next episode has to do with Castle getting into a bit of trouble and Kate having to kind of get back into the good graces of the people that she’s worked with in the past./>

TVLINE | Alexis is “acting out” some in the wake of the engagement, with this whole Pi thing. Would you want a scene where Kate and Alexis talked it through?
I think that this is a matter for a father and daughter, and a daughter knows that no matter what the father is, he’s going to be the same, in spite of the fact that he’s entering into a new relationship. When we were playing those scenes [where Kate and Rick grow more serious], I was always aware of what would it mean for a person who’s coming into a relationship where there are children already involved. And Alexis is not even a child anymore, she’s a woman, you know? So how do you kind of navigate that? I think that the way that they built the story, Kate is really respectful of that adjustment and aware of what needs to happen in order to make everybody feel safe in the end./>

TVLINE | Lastly, a lot of people enjoy the Kate and Lanie scenes, as two girlfriends. Yet we haven’t seen them together since the engagement. Do they have any scenes coming up?
Yes. Yes, there are a few coming up, and some of them actually revolve around Alexis and Castle figuring out what the next kind of version of their world will be./>
