Do you have any scoop on Castle‘s 150th episode? Anything special fans can look forward to? –Sandra
UPDATED! This just in, fresh from showrunner David Amann: “Obviously, the 150th episode is a milestone for the show but it also directly precedes the season finale. At this point, we intend Episode 22 to be a buoyant, classic episode of Castle, while [the finale] will focus on compelling, high-stakes story-telling surrounding Castle and Beckett mythology.”
I’d love to read anything new you have for Castle! Please?! –M.
This is a bit interesting: I asked showrunner David Amann – on behalf of a reader, maybe? I forget – if there might ever be an episode that pits the men against the women, sort of how that one Lisa Edelstein episode did, but sticking with the regular cast. Think: Beckett, Lanie, Gates and Tori (and you could even throw in Alexis) vs. Castle, RySpo and a reluctant Perlmutter. And Amann said, “There may be something like that, where there’s a different configuration to the investigative team that emphasizes a couple of the women. That’s something to look for around [Episode] 21.”
Before Castle’s two-parter descended into bloody action, there was a quiet moment where Beckett (Stana Katic) pondered the future child she might have with Castle (Nathan Fillion). But, TVGuide.com user Rachel asks, will the show actually impregnate Beckett any time soon?
Possibly! “Beckett is looking ahead,” executive producer David Amann tells us. “She’s trying to figure out what her next step is, and that encompasses family. She’s been driven for the better part of her adult life by the death of her mother, which is now resolved. Her relationship with Castle is settled, so she’s at a place now where she really needs to be thinking about, ‘What does she want that future to be?’ It seems like children are going to naturally be a part of that discussion.”
That said, it may still be a while before we see any baby bumps. “These are all good questions that she’s asking herself,” Amann says. “I don’t think she has any of the answers yet, but she’s asking the questions because she needs to figure out where she’s headed.”
Following Castle‘s late-February “mission to Mars,” Detective Kate Beckett will fall back to Earth, partnered with a fellow femme who’s even better at crimefighting than she is.
Series boss David Amann tells TVLine that in this season’s 17th episode, to air sometime in March, Star Trek: Enterprise alum Linda Park will fill the role of a hot-shot Hong Kong cop that Beckett “is paired up with, somewhat unwillingly.”
Amann describes Park’s Inspector Zhang as “kind of like Beckett, except even better, so that puts Beckett in a bit of a tailspin, to be dealing with somebody who in her eyes is more accomplished and proficient.”
Any Castle scoop? — Sandra
The second hour of the two-parter will see Castle get a taste of what Beckett went through for the months he was missing … and he’s not going to handle it well. Being personally targeted by 3XK brings out a new, more violent side of Castle, and his temper might just land him in handcuffs.
