Castle teased everyone on Monday when Kate broached the subject of wedding venues to Rick. Series creator Andrew Marlowe spoils more about what’s ahead concerning their official wedding announcement. Marlowe also reveals some ‘really fun’ episode plots that are ahead, including one that features our favorite couple minding a baby!
“We’re certainly playing with Beckett being a private person and not really wanting to deal with the engagement announcement [to the media],” show boss Andrew W. Marlowe previews. “But a case comes up with somebody who’s very much in the public eye that gets Beckett to the point where she realizes she’s a private person but she’s in a relationship with somebody who’s a public person – so how does that affect them?”
The Pre-hiatus Episode “The Good, the Bad and the Baby”
“The “really fun” hour, as he describes it, finds Rick and Kate minding an infant mysteriously deposited by a stranger in a church, at Christmastime. “If I’m the fan and I’ve been watching this show, I know a lot about Rick and Kate, but I don’t really know how they feel about more kids,” Marlowe notes. “Does Castle want more? And for Beckett, somebody who has been pursuing her career and her job so doggedly, I’m sure it’s crossed her mind theoretically — ‘Oh, sure. I’ll have kids someday’ — but someday’s coming up.” After all, I myself mused, has Beckett ever had occasion to handle a baby? “We will answer that question,” Marlowe assures, “in a fun, funny, satisfying and charming way.”
Bringing Back Beckett in Acton
“We’ve talked about bringing [Sen.] Bracken back this year. It’s about finding the right type of story so that it has the weight we’re looking for. But I’d love to see some of those coming up in the spring if we can.”
