castle season 7 spoilers bracken beckett crash abc 'Castle' Season 7 spoilers: Senator Bracken didn't run Rick off the road

The “Castle” Season 6 finale may have killed its main character, but at least an old enemy wasn’t the obvious culprit in the case. New spoilers for Season 7 indicate that Senator William Bracken (Jack Coleman) is not the mystery driver who crashed Rick Castle’s car before the man’s wedding.

The news comes from TVLine, that quotes “Castle” creator Andrew Marlowe as saying that blaming Bracken would just be “going back to revisit the old ghosts.” So, while Bracken may still want some revenge on Castle and especially Beckett, that could need to wait awhile.

Who else could have been behind the fiery crash that derailed the wedding of Rick Castle and Kate Beckett? Over six years on the air, the detectives have picked up a few enemies — people who don’t like Castle’s father, 3XK, various criminals and more — any of whom might want to disrupt the Castle-Beckett wedding.

Whatever the case, it seems that Bracken isn’t to blame this time.

“Castle” Season 7 will air Mondays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC in the fall.
