Hi, Matt! Any Castle scoop for us this week? –Teresa
You could say that. Episode 21, I have learned, is titled “Law & Boarder,” while 22, you may have heard, is called “Veritas.” That brings us to the May 12 season finale, and while unconfirmed by ABC, I’m hearing it’s titled “For Better or For Worse,” and the guest roles being cast include a motorcycle gang leader, an ex-mob boss, a stripper and an… officiant… of some sort. :-O

Beckett and Castle have been engaged for all of this season of CASTLE, and the show may be leading up to a spring wedding for the duo. But will their nuptials go off as planned?

While CASTLE boss Andrew Marlowe wouldn’t spill all the details (naturally), we talked about the decision to show so many of the wedding’s details before the big day, as well as upcoming cases, and more…

We’ve seen Castle and Beckett talking a lot about the wedding this season, and so far, CASTLE has unveiled a lot of the big things shows often don’t reveal until the big day — we’ve seen the dress, we know their song, Beckett’s letter to Castle when she was held in captivity could have almost passed for wedding vows. Because we’ve seen this much, should viewers maybe be suspicious that there will be a last minute switch to a nontraditional wedding? Or are you planning on throwing the wedding they’ve been speaking about if/when the day happens?

Andrew Marlowe: I think that what the two of them want from their wedding is going to play out for the audience. I think we’re going to play fair with them, and show Castle and Beckett try and have the wedding they want.

What I’ll say is we’re trying to present a couple who are in the process of planning a wedding, and things get talked about, and things come up as you get close to the date. We think it would be unfair not to talk about it, not to show it, because it is very much a part of their lives.

In terms of how everything is going to play out and what we’re going to do, and if the road is going to go smoothly or if it’s going to be rocky, or if there are going to be surprises along the way, whether the day changes, whether the day stays the same, whether it happens or not, that’s all stuff we want the audience to tune in to see. Things certainly can happen along the way, but that doesn’t mean the wedding is going to be off. It doesn’t mean the wedding is going to be on. It’s just a natural part [of the process.]

Plans can always change.

AM: Or they can stay the same. I’ve been to weddings that have been lovely; I’ve been to weddings that have been disastrous; I’ve been to weddings that have gone off without a hitch; I’ve been to weddings that didn’t happen on the day [of the planned event.] There are plenty of opportunities out there, and I’ve love for the audience to watch.

And there will be more conversations [about the wedding] as they get closer to the date.

Nice. What can you tease about the cases that are coming up?

AM: We have a really fun episode where we get to see a little more of Captain Gates. The victim it turns out is a confidential informant for the U.S. Attorney’s office. And we discover that the U.S. Attorney for the southern district of New York is actually Gates’ sister, and Gates has never mentioned this, and why hasn’t she mentioned it? And what is the relationship between these two very strong, very powerful women. It’s really fun for us to be able to showcase Penny Jerald Johnson (Gates), and we had yet to bite at this character who we’ve been seeing for a couple of years. We get a significant bite at her backstory and who she is.

And after that, we have a really, really fun episode that takes us into the world of the 1970s, into the middle of the disco era. It’s a different device than “Blue Butterfly,” that allows us to see our characters in that era. So that’s going to be fun.

And as I intimated, we’ll get another bite at the larger mythology story before we end the season.

Will 3XK come back into play before the end of the season?

AM: I thought 3XK was dead! Maybe his girlfriend’s alive.

Will the show be revisiting the storyline before the season concludes?

AM: I will neither confirm nor deny.

Interesting. Will we be seeing any of Ryan’s home life, or seeing his newborn daughter anytime soon?

AM: It’s not in the next couple of episodes. Going home with somebody just to see their home life if we’re not filtering it through a case or through the Castle/Beckett experience is always a challenge for us, because those scenes, as fun as they are, don’t move the story forward.

What does having Alexis back at home do for you guys are storytellers? Are you finding it easier to bring her into stories that way?

AM: It is when we need her as we go through this last stretch. It’s a lot of concentration on Castle and Beckett, and the wedding, so I think it’s at a time in the series where, yeah, we had a great bite at her in the beginning, and we’ll for sure see her at the end, but having her around  allows us to weave her into the stories more, and it also means that to bring her into the stories, we can have her there without having to create great excuses for her to show up.

Penny Johnson Jerald took on the role of Capt. Victoria “Iron” Gates at the beginning of Castle Season 4, replacing the 12th precinct’s beloved Capt. Montgomery in the process.

Now heading towards the end of Castle season 6, I had the chance to speak with the actress about her upcoming sister act, the blue-eyed stare… and why Castle is her fine dessert.

It looks like we’re going to meet Victoria Gates’ sister in Castle Season 6 Episode 19. What can you tell us about that?

Well you know what’s really special about this episode? It’s not only that I have an on-screen sister but I also have a real life sister who is going to make a special appearance on this episode as well. That’s pretty cool. It’s kind of like a sister in an episode who’s not my sister but my real sister will be there too. I’m finding that when that happened I was so excited. I was beside myself. I said to Andrew (Marlowe – show creator), I’m going to be the best little student you’ve ever had. So I’m excited to see it on Monday.

Will we be meeting the rest of Gates family. Her husband or kids?

I certainly hope so. According to my sister played by Salli Richardson, when she was telling me the back story that she created in her mind, you better meet my family because according to her, they’re a trip. We laughed a lot about how I could end up being called Iron Gates with what kind of family and support system I would have back there. However I think that Andrew hits the nail on the head when he introduced the Elizabeth character, Salli’s character to show that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. So we’re like right there on par with one another and that’s really dynamic.

What do you think of Gates’ evolving relationship with Castle?  She certainly wasn’t a fan of his in the beginning. Where would you say they are now and why has it changed?

I think that the only real change is in letting them know that I know. I think she still doesn’t quite understand why he has to be there but she is finding an appreciation for the insight that he brings to the precinct and to the different cases. I think right now that the back and forth is the treat. I don’t think that we should be all the way on the other side of the fence because then that’s not real because he still isn’t a detective. He’s still a civilian in her precinct and she runs everything so by the book. But she’s accepting because he’s starting to rub off on her.

I’m sure it wasn’t easy walking into a hit show going into its 4th season. How long did it take to feel like a part of the team?

I would say, the moment the cameras rolled on the first scene with Stana (Katic, Kate Beckett) where I said, You can call me Sir. I think that broke the ice, the writing for that. Castle is a whole different animal than any other show that I’ve ever been on in that everyone is kind of inside of each other’s lives on and off screen. It truly is that old familiar word, family. Castle is a family. It starts from the top and it’s the way that Andrew runs  the whole outfit over there.

Everyone is loving on one another. I mean right now I’ve never seen a group of people get together when someone is hurting in this family and not just the cast members but production, the crew. And we get together and we try to make it the best for that person. That doesn’t really happen. You know, you kind of hear about it and you go, Oh, that’s so bad. So sorry, and then you get on with your work but not with this show. They made me feel like I was part of the family.

I didn’t feel like I was stepping on anyone’s toes because my character, the Captain was being replaced not the actor because there’s certainly the knowledge that the love for the Montgomery character is still there too. It was just so accepting from day one.

Have you had a favorite moment or episode thus far on the show?

Oh gosh. You know, every time I think I have a favorite moment or a favorite episode it changes because the next episode happens. As my pastor says, It just gets gooder and gooder. And it just gets gooder and gooder. I mean the episode I’m reading today, it’s so wonderful. I think I’ve had favorite moments but it hasn’t been particularly on camera that I can pinpoint. My favorite moments are my hugs from the cast members and the 15 minute blue eyed stare. I mean 15 seconds. 15 minutes would create something else! That’s something that Nathan (Fillion, Rick Castle) and I do. I just stare into his big blues for 15 seconds every time that I work and he allows it. Then we do a little smile and we get on with it.

What started that?

It all started with my little granny baby, when she realized that Nathan was a real person and she said, And he has blue eyes! And she wants to see them so I look in his eyes for her every time I work.

What’s been your most memorable role over the years?

Well the most memorable is the one I’m doing today because that’s what I can remember, just having had a birthday. But the most delicious and the most fun role to date has been Sherry Palmer character (24). I really do and I think what I was going through at that particular time in life. A parent to a teenager/woman and really going to bat with being a great parent and at the time it was mirroring what was going on with 24 with Sherry. She first started out defending her children like any wolf would do for her cubs and then it became something so delicious it went back to the the theater.

I felt like I was back doing the classics. It was Shakespeare, I was playing Lady M. That’s a feeling that is going to be hard to top but I certainly hope that it’s not over. I hope that I get to play something equally as delicious as Sheri Palmer and just as wonderful with Castle. I put it to you this way, The Larry Saunders Show was like my hors d’oeuvre. 24 was the meal and Castle is a fine dessert. Whatever happens after Castle will be my cordial, my nightcap.

There’s only a handful of episodes leading up to the season finale scheduled to air May 12th. Anything you can share with fans about the remainder of the season?

I can tell you this and I said this earlier this morning. When I read the episode that we are about to do which is second to last, I nearly fell off of my treadmill. It’s whoa! It took the wind out of me. It is so exciting. I can not wait. And Rob (Bowman) is directing it and when he directs it’s like a movie. I can’t wait and if I can’t wait I know the fans are going to be…to say the expression, they’re going to pee their pants. It’s going to be so good.

And that’s not the finale, it’s the one before the season finale?

It’s the one before the finale so you can imagine what the finale might bring out.

Since Gates entered the CASTLE world in 2011, fans have only gotten little glimpses of the woman behind the title. But with Monday’s brand new episode, “The Greater Good,” viewers will finally get to explore a little bit of Gates’ complicated family dynamic.

To get a little bit of a tease about the hour, I spoke with CASTLE star Penny Johnson Jerald (Gates) about learning more about her character, what she does with the new info, which upcoming episode nearly caused her to injure herself while reading it, and more…

I’m excited we’re finally learning more about Gates! What can you tease about what the episode will reveal?
Penny Johnson Jerald: I’ll tell you one thing: you’re not the only one who is excited. I have been waiting for this since day one. And each time I learn a little bit more about Gates, it makes me even more excited as a fan of the show as well.

I am going to have a sister! How about that?

A sister we knew nothing about!
PJJ: Let me tell you, I knew nothing about me having a sister. I had a [still-unseen] husband first, but it’s so exciting to have a sister. I think they did the best casting ever with Salli Richardson. It’s very exciting to work together with her. They couldn’t have gotten a better person.

Did they give you a heads-up at some point that this episode was coming, or were you just surprised when you read the script and realized what was going on?
PJJ: [Laughs] I’m going to answer this really honestly: I acted like I was surprised when I got it, but someone who is pretty far up the ladder hinted [at it]. They kind of asked me what I thought of a particular actress, and I said, “Oh, people have said all along she could be my sister in the business.” And then he smiled. And I said, “What? I have a sister?” And I went, “Okay, I won’t tell a soul!”…so I was looking forward to it, but I didn’t know where it would land when they cast my sister, and to what extent our relationship would be like.

What can you tease about the sisters’ reunion?
PJJ: Salli and Penny have dynamic chemistry. And not because I want to pat myself on the back, but I’ve been told, “Wow, you guys really have great chemistry on-screen.” And that’s a high compliment, because usually that chemistry is with a male, and not a female.

Working on it, we laughed at some of the things we could maybe have in common, so we could share the sister portion of the story. Like, Gates wears glasses — is Salli ever able to put those glasses on?

As far as the plot, there is a murder, as there is on CASTLE. And it’s coming out of [Gates' sister's] office. And we finally meet for the first time in a long time. And when that initial meeting happens, it’s explosive.

Is there room for her to return beyond this episode?
PJJ: If you’re asking if this is a one-off, I never like to say that. I always like to believe that there’s more to come, because we created this fabulous backstory — or at least Salli created [one]. I could see her coming back. I hope she definitely does come back at some point, because of how much fun we had during [filming] the episode.

Now that you’ve gotten this episode, are you talking with the writers about when we might get to learn more about Gates again?
PJJ: I think it’s the beginning of more to come. I have a sister. I want to see this infamous husband. I have children — at least I look at pictures of them in my office. It probably won’t happen this season, since we’re wrapping it up and looking at something wonderful and adventurous to happen between the Castle and Beckett characters.

But hopefully next year, we’ll see something [more] about Gates. Every time I learn something, like I have a sister, or I like dolls, or this insight into who I am, it’s making Gates more and more human. That’s what I’ve been trying to get at her from the beginning. And I think it’s happening in a great way.

Are all these little tidbits changing how you play her?
PJJ: I’m like an elephant; I don’t forget anything. Even if the writers forget something — which sometimes they do, because they have everybody to be concerned with, so truly, I have to [only] be concerned with myself — but I do [remember]. I keep all of those stories you’ve been exposed to in my diary. I keep a diary so if I’m doing a scene and there’s a reference to something, I can go, “Didn’t that happen in…?” Or “Don’t I…?” It’s a reminder of just another layer of Gates. I think it’s working, because the fans enjoy her, and how she’s unfolding and becoming this real, whole person.

So to answer your question, yes. I borrow from every script I get the information from. And it does impact what I do at that moment.

It’s great that you’re so excited for this — from what I’ve been hearing, the fans are excited to learn more about her, too.
PJJ: I had a ball. They were like, “What is she on?”

I blame it on Stana [Katic (Beckett)]. She has this coffee that’s unbelievable, so I call it the Crack Coffee. Not only did I have that every day, it is wonderful to be working every day, all day long. I get pleasure out of really working for my paycheck. I think Monday night, it will deliver.

I know you can’t say too much about what you’re filming right now, but is there anything you can tease about what is coming up?
PJJ: [Laughs] I can tell you about the episode we shot after [Monday's episode]. I learned something else about myself in that episode, and boy, was it fun! It was great to be able to go from this tense reunion with [her] sister to something that was like, let the hair down, have some fun with [in the following hour].

In the episode we’re about to start [filming] tomorrow, boy, they sure know how to wrap up a season. I mean, I could hardly take it reading it while I was on the treadmill; I thought I was going to fall off this morning! I think it’s all good. Really exciting.
