‘CASTLE’: THREE TEASES FROM EP ANDREW MARLOWE!
One of my favorite things about Spoiler Room is that I get a chance to
preview for you a lot of the fun things to come here on InsideTV, and
here’s yet another: Yesterday, I hopped on the phone with Castle EP
Andrew Marlowe, who talked about the second half of the season. And
while you can expect a full report on our chat over the next few days
(good stuff!), here are three bits I’ve pulled to entice you for the
+ Another kiss coming?
As one of you pointed out in an e-mail to me, last January, fans were
treated to a kiss between Castle and Beckett. So, I posed the factoid to
the ever-coy Marlowe, while shamelessly fishing to see if there was
something coming up to be equally excited about. “I think we can be
treated to something, if not at that level, close to that level — in
terms of movement and complication,” he teases.
+ Another high-stakes two-parter!
One of my favorite episodes of Castle last season was the two-part dirty bomb episode that guest-starred Heroes alum Adrian Pasdar. This season, Jennifer Beals will guest in another two-parter as a CIA agent (with ties to Castle!)
who will allow the writers to “do storytelling on a grand scale.” “We
have some folks here who spent some time in features and we want to try
to bring that movie mentality to TV as best we can,” he says. “I think
it will be as explosive as last season. Certainly, I’ll say, we were
dealing with a dirty bomb so explosive is a good word for last season.
This one will be equally high stakes.”
+ Finale planning in progress
Last season’s Castle finale was, for yours truly, the best
episode of the series. So how does one top that? Simple: You don’t. “You
try to do something different,” clarifies Marlowe. “If you’re
doing the same thing, only better, it still gets a little bit familiar.
We always like to keep the audience a little bit on their toes, so we’re
conceiving the last couple of episodes — what can we do that’s really
compelling in a way we haven’t explored on the show yet?”
