Monday marks the return of "Dancing With the Stars," but ABC is extending the ballroom drama a bit with a "DWTS"-inspired episode of "Castle" (Mon., Mar. 19, 10 p.m. ET on ABC) airing right after the Season 14 premiere.
And it's kind of a fitting tip of the hat to their lead-in -- after all, Castle and Beckett have been dancing around their feelings for each other since they teamed up.
We've got an exclusive sneak peek at "A Dance with Death," which finds Castle and Beckett investigating a murder on "A Night of Dance," a show that looks eerily similar to "DWTS," right down to the catty judges, smiley host and sparkly set.
Watch the first look here:
Here's the episode description for "A Dance with Death":
When Odette Morton, a contestant on the hit competition show "A Night of Dance," is found murdered in her dressing room, Castle and Beckett must navigate the case's many twists and twirls without stepping on each other's toes. But as they delve into Odette's past, they discover that this reality starlet was harboring a shocking secret that may have led to her death.
