So, CASTLE fans, are you still breathing?
(Take a second, I can wait.)
After all, after four seasons of dancing around each other, Castle
and Beckett took a major step forward in their relationship at the end
of “Always”…one of those relationship-altering steps that has likely
broken a couple of social media sites.
To get some dish on why the timing was right for the duo now, what
fans can expect in a probable season 5 and more, I spoke with CASTLE
creator Andrew Marlowe to get the dish…
It feels crazy to say it, but Castle and Beckett have now gone there. What made the timing right for these two now?
Andrew Marlowe: Because it was absolutely time. And
honestly, this was a decision that became clear to us about 2/3s of the
way through last season when we made the decision of how we were ending
last season. It’s impossible for Castle to say “I love you” and leave
that hanging in the air and have the characters know that that’s out
there and wait much longer to deal with that in an interesting and
We’re 81 episodes in, we’ve done a lot of storytelling having not
gone there. And my personal feeling is we were on the verge of creating
very artificial mechanisms of keeping them apart. And we were on the
verge of rehashing storytelling in their relationship and we were in
danger of not moving forward. So we had always aimed for this as being
the end [result] of this season. And when people look back on this
season, they will see the rhythm and they will look at the moments where
they were really frustrated and understand why we did it then and what
we were going for, because we always knew we were going to end up here.
