Warning! Spoilers for 6×22 and 6×23!

The season’s penultimate episode once again delves into Beckett’s mother’s murder after a man Beckett was secretly surveilling winds up dead. And when the evidence links Beckett to the murder, she and Castle will both be the target of a dangerous manhunt. Fortunately, the finale, titled “For Better or Worse,” holds the promise of a happy ending! But don’t expect the couple to make it to their wedding without some serious speed bumps. For starters, Warehouse 13′s Eddie McClintock guest-stars as a small-town hustler who shares a complicated past with Beckett. “Weddings can either go off without a hitch or they can be disastrous,” creator Andrew W. Marlowe teases. “[But] people can end up together after the disaster. We still have a few tricks up our sleeve.”

The 12th precinct takes a trip back in time this week in Castle Season 6 Episode 20, as our favorite detectives get down and get groovy in order to play into a witness’ delusion that it’s still the 1970s.

We chatted with Seamus Dever to talk about his love of all things ’70s, what he’d like to see in Kevin Ryan’s future and what fans can expect from the upcoming Castle season finale.

How did you prepare for this episode? Were you channeling your inner Starsky & Hutch?

I think, you know, Starsky & Hutch they were a jumping off point for the start of the character but I’m a big fan of movies from the ’70s so it wasn’t too hard to channel. There were some other influences. Some blaxploitation influences for sure. Starsky & Hutch, they were a starting point but it really got bigger than that.

You sound like a big fan of the ’70s. What was your favorite ’70s TV show or movie?

Oh my God, yeah. There’s so many movies. I mean all of my favorite movies are from the ’70s. The French Connection, that sort of started it off. There’s some really good film making. Chinatown, it’s about the ’40s but was made in the ’70s. Super Fly, Shaft. Some good, just like gritty movies. Billy Jack. Oh God, that was so like rough. It’s fun to watch those movies where everything wasn’t necessarily so polished. Most of my favorite music is from the ’70s, I have to say, all like the soul music. We were definitely getting down with some Isaac Hayes, with some Bill Withers. It was a lot of fun.

Were there any ’70s consultants on the set or did you all just dive into on your own?

Who needed them? I’ve got a pretty good knowledge of the ’70s. I was born in 1976 after all so I consider myself a ’70s expert.

Out of the entire cast, who was the most into this concept? Who had the most fun with it?

Oh boy. I don’t even know that anybody was having any more fun than our crew was, to be honest. We all had a lot of fun and there were a lot of laughs. Penny (Johnson Jerald, Capt. Gates) had a good time. Tamala (Jones, Dr. Lanie Parish) had a good time.

Jon (Huertas, Det. Javier Esposito) and I had a really good time. Yeah, it was a lot of fun. Nathan and Stana they got a kick out of wearing the clothes and seeing us dressed up so different. Sort of the general consensus was that Jon and I were the most transformed. I think when you see the episode it will be evident. But the crew had a good time because of it. They got to do hair and makeup on us and make us look so different. Kudos to them.

Your costume designer Luke Reichle did an amazing job with your outfits but were the actors allowed any input?

Well, of course. In all of the fittings we do. We sit down, or really stand up and we put on the clothes and say this works or this doesn’t. This is too tight, this is whatever. From that moment on, we were sort of like this is going to work or I like this. There’s sort of a little spark that goes off when you put on the right pair of pants for the character or the right shirt and you go, oh my God. Let’s take a picture and let’s show everybody. Yeah, Luke had a great time. Him and Johnny, our other costumer, they got to pull some stuff together. They’re all costumes.

They’re all authentic. Nothing was made for this. It’s not hard to find these in these great, big costume warehouses that are all throughout Los Angeles. Western Costume, they all exist, these costumes and they’re authentic. You’re wearing some acrylic turtleneck from 1977 and you know, it smells like it’s been around since 1977. And you’re just like, please don’t rip. Please don’t rip.

Is there anything from that time period you’d like to see back in style?

Soul music. I’d bring back soul music and it would be the only music you’d hear on the radio. Just so much music from that era that I absolutely love. My God, the O’Jays, the Dramatics, the Chi-Lites. Yeah. I listen to a lot of that kind of radio on my SiriusXM, Soul Town. It’s my favorite.

Now I’ve got to ask, do you have a favorite ’70s song?

There’s so many. Probably the one I’m into lately is What You See Is What You Get and I believe that’s by the Dramatics. So, yeah. There’s some good music out there.

Changing gears a bit, if he could pitch one idea for Kevin Ryan’s story going forward, what would it be?

Oh, for Ryan. Geez. OK, two things. One, I want Ryan to go undercover again. That was a lot of fun. I’d want there to be one more secret that Ryan gets to surprise people with, just like we did with “The Wild Rover” episode in season 5. One more thing to make people go really, he did that? I want that moment just one more time. And then the other one I’ve been pitching for years that I don’t think is ever going to see its way in there is a murder mystery where we all go out of town to some mansion in the Hamptons and they have some sort of stay overnight Clue kind of thing.

So I’ve wanted like a Clue episode, where we have to dress as these characters to flush out the killer. I’ve been pitching that for three years so I don’t think it’s going to happen. If it hasn’t happened by now, but I think it would be really fun to do that.

Will we see/hear more about little baby Ryan soon? It’s been pretty quiet since she was born. Will we get anymore insights this season into the Ryan family?

No, probably not this year. Probably next year they’ll pick that up but its not planned for this season.

We all know there’s a wedding approaching and everyone is wondering, will Ryan be Castle’s best man?

There’s a fun episode after the ’70s episode. I think it’s Castle Season 6 Episode 21 where Esposito and Ryan both decide that they’re worthy of being Castle’s best man. So they’re both competing for that honor. And Castle has no idea why they’re acting like such suck-ups all of a sudden to curry his favor. Beckett’s on to it very early and kind of lets the lunacy go on because she enjoys it but Castle’s totally unaware of it and thinks that we’re talking about something else. So the entire time we’re giving him gifts and doing all of these things and just being like really affectionate, like you’re my best buddy. We’re friends, like best friends. Jon’s really funny in that episode. He does some really understated throw away lines that are just really hilarious. Yeah, there’s a competition and at the end you’ll find out who the best man is.

What can you share about the season finale? Will fans be happy or angst ridden going into the summer?

I think they’re… um. Let’s say, oh boy. Let’s say they’re going to want to tune in in September to find out what happens next. They’re going to be challenged. I don’t think they’re going to be happy or sad. They’re going to be challenged. Which is good. We want people to come next year.

CASTLE is taking a trip to the ’70s with Monday’s episode, “That ’70s Show,” and the hour lets viewers see their favorite characters in a way we’ve never seen them before.

To get a little insight into the making of the episode, I spoke with CASTLE star Seamus Dever (Ryan) about getting into the era, what Ryan will be up to, what era he hopes the show tackles next, and more…

What was your reaction to seeing the script for “That ’70s Show”?
Seamus Dever: [Laughs] It was a lot of fun! I was like, oh my god, it’s going to be so much fun when we get to do this, when we really dress up fully like this. And I think the audience is going to be surprised by how different Ryan and Esposito look in this episode.

How long did the process take to do hair and makeup for ’70s-era Ryan?
SD: It took about an hour to do the whole thing. Usually I’m done with hair and makeup in 15 minutes…we had a great time. That hair and makeup department, they’re used to doing cool and crazy stuff like this. They really got a kick out of doing it. It was a nice departure from what we normally do on the show.

What was the wardrobe process like?
SD: Surprisingly quick. I think I tried on four or five pairs of really tight pants. [Laughs] And then when the right thing comes along, you’re like, yep, there you go. Everyone gets inspired by what the look is going to be. Surprisingly quick. My sessions go really quick, because I’m a fairly average-sized person, so I have a lot of options available to me.

And so we did it really quickly. And you’re wearing these great clothes from the ’70s that are from these vast costume rental warehouses, where they rent from for things like this. So they have a lot of ’70s costumes, things that were probably worn on TV shows in the ’70s. So it’s like going back in time when you slip in them, because you put that turtleneck on, and you hope it doesn’t stretch out too far, because this thing is 40 years old. [Laughs] And the character falls into place because of it.

What can you tease about the episode itself?
SD: We have a cold case that comes out, a Jimmy Hoffa-style cold case where we try and track down these really old leads, and track these really old mobsters down to talk to. And it turns out one of the informants from the past — we got the awesome actor, Jon Polito, who is one of the Coen brothers regulars, he came on and I got to work with him a lot — he comes on the show, and he plays this character that thinks he’s in the ’70s, dresses like he’s in the ’70s, talks to people like he’s in the ’70s. And there’s one moment where Castle realizes we have to transform the precinct, ’70s-style, so we get rid of all the new desks, all the computers, everything’s gone. All of a sudden we have a picture of Jimmy Carter on the wall and it’s like 1977, 1978. [Laughs] And everybody, even all the background folks, are dressed up like that.

And Esposito and Ryan take on this persona of these two really well-known badass detectives in the ’70s, Snooky and Ray, and we get to interview him, and take him to a ’70s club to jog his memory. And in the process we solve the murder, of course. But the fun part is seeing how we do it.

What was the best part of the experience of this episode for you?
SD: Transforming is always so much fun. I’m really a character actor at heart, so it’s one of my favorite things to do. Completely transforming: the walk being different, the energy being different, the way you talk being different, the way you carry yourself, that was so much fun. I get used to playing Ryan all these years, so it was nice to breakout and do something different. That was my favorite: just breaking out and doing something way different than what we usually do.

Now that the show has done a noir/’40s episode and a ’70s-themed episode, is there another era you hope they get to visit on the show?
SD: Wow. Yeah, I guess so. Those are my favorite time periods. Maybe a ’50s episode, where some things are happening in the good ol’ swinging New York ’50s. But we did the ’40s and that was pretty close. It’s hard to say. Maybe the ’20s? the ’20s would be fun. I don’t know how [they'd do it], but it would be a lot of fun to do. Prohibition style!

I loved the “Blue Butterfly” episode of Castle. How will the show handle the ’70s? — Kristen
While the gang will again be delightfully costumed, “That ’70s Show” is more grounded in reality. In fact, Castle, Beckett & Co. only dress up in disco-era garb to pry the truth from a witness who still believes it’s 1978. Unfortunately for Beckett, the witness shares Archie Bunker’s views on women, which forces Castle to take the lead on the case — and in turning back the clock on the 12th Precinct. (Just wait until you see Esposito’s reaction to Lanie’s Foxy Brown get-up!)
