Castle returns to ABC after taking the holidays off and front and center is Det. Kevin Ryan's upcoming nuptials to fiancee Jenny, but in true Castle fashion, something potentially life-changing forces the couple to rethink their future.
Actor Seamus Dever said as much when he chatted with The Hollywood Reporter about Monday's pivotal episode, centered on the murder of a lothario who has surprising ties to Jenny. "She becomes involved in the murder and we discover some information that might affect Ryan's decision to get married at all," Dever tells THR. That's not all: The couple will have another point of contention.
"Ryan and Jenny have decided to go on a cleanse to purge themselves and make themselves pure before they get married. It's sort of a spiritual thing," Dever says.
The cleanse proves to be too much. "He's letting things boil and he's becoming anxious because he can't wat. His partner Esposito is taunting him with donuts," Dever says with a laugh. So much so that by episode's end, "Ryan decides to finally break his cleanse. There's a scene where everybody's eating Chinese food and Ryan loses it and starts devouring everything on the table," he adds.
Monday's episode is crucial to Ryan's journey to becoming a man -- and playing opposite his real-life wife Juliana helped. He recalled a moment that drew parallels to his actual wedding: "There's a moment right before I head into the chapel to get married; it's a funny thing that happens to a person. There's a mixture of excitement, of nervousness and fear all combined into one."
