The Saban Theater welcomed the cast and writers of ABC’s hit crime drama, Castle. Paley fest opened Castle’s panel with a screening of their upcoming episode, “A Dance With Death”. Creator Andrew Marlowe revealed that episode 18 would be the ‘last normal episode before the stormy weather hits.’ It was also spoiled that “A Dance With Death’ would feature a sexually intense Tango between Rick and Beckett.
Marlowe promised a sooner, rather than later coupling for Rick Kate.
“They’ll come a time when we can’t credibly keep these guys apart,” he said, much to the crowd’s delight. “And that next evolution in their relationship can be just as fun.”
Series stars, Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic, had their own responses that were far more tantalizing.
Katic shook fans up with, “Kissing. Lots of it.” While the always coy Fillion responded,” I think it’s played out very well. It’s been tastefully and artfully dealt with — but I don’t think it’s something that can be done forever. Andrew has shared his plan, and it’s deft.”
The exciting panel also confirmed that the rest of Season 4 would address Beckett really hearing Rick’s declaration that he loves her. Rick’s secrets regarding the murder of Beckett’s mother will yield consequences.
“As we get into his last run, those secrets will start to come up and we’ll have to deal with the consequences
I spoiled earlier that we may not have seen the last of CIA agent Sofia~Jennifer Beals. In Castle’s two-part story arc, Sofia told Rick a that his estranged father was a CIA agent. But how far does his trust for Sofia go?
“Castle doesn’t know if he can trust Sophia,” says Marlowe. “It is something we’ll be exploring forward in the series.”
Below you’ll find red carpet scoop from Castle’s Nathan Fillion, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald, Susan Sullivan and Stana Katic.
