CASTLE's sixth season ended in a way many fans didn't expect: instead of Castle and Beckett tying the I
he disappeared on the way to their wedding...and was presumed dead. But since the show is called CAST
it's fairly safe to say the show won't be going down that tragic path.
To get a little bit of insight into what's to come, I sat down with CASTLE creator, Andrew Marlowe, anc
showrunner, David Amann, to talk about season 7, how Castle's absence is impacting the people who ca
about him most, and more...
What can you preview about the premiere?
David Amann: It's going to be dealing with the aftermath of what happened in the season finale. We h
some really intriguing questions that are going to arise from this about what happened to Castle. So we
going to raise some interesting questions for the next couple of episodes in terms of what happened to and why. It opens us up for some great mythology opportunities for CASTLE that we'll also be probably
revisiting later in the season.
What can you tease about the state Castle will be in when we see him in the premiere?
Andrew Marlowe: In the opening episode, we're going to be dealing with what happened to Castle, and the
ramifications of it are something we're going to be dealing with through the course of the season.
What we're hoping to do, and the reason we're excited
because we know some fans weren't
by the way
we ended last season, is it gave us an opportunity to open up a new mythology element, because we know
where we're going. And if the fans give us a couple of episodes, I think they'll see that pay off.
In the first couple of episodes, we will be wrestling with the questions of what happened to Castle, and it's
important for us to communicate to the fans that we're not doing anything to radically alter the trajectory of
the Castle/Beckett relationship. These are two people who are very much in love, who are going to be
challenged by something here, but we're not saying this is going to tear them apart or anything. It's just a
new set of circumstances that is going to create a mystery that is going to be part of the upcoming season.
The whole season isn't going to be filled up with it, though. We're going to deal with it in the first couple of
episodes, we're going to get back to the kinds of CASTLE episodes that we all know and love and expect, with
a relationship that has deeper understanding, and also deeper curiosity to it. And it'll also take that
relationship to a much more interesting place, we feel. And so we know the fans were
a little bit like, "What
are you guys doing?" We have something planned that we're kind of excited about, and we hope that people
come back and play along.
DA: When we get through episode two, we will resolve some questions of what happened to him, but not all
of them. [The open questions) will be hanging out there in ways that can't be pursued any further [for the
meantime]. But our plan is that we
will reopen it later on.
AM: Quite possibly in the [mid-season] two-parter.
How is Beckett holding up post-finale? We saw her grief in the immediate aftermath, but will she at least
be able to put her head down and try to get to the bottom of everything?
DA: She's committed to getting to the bottom of what happened with Castle. That's really her focus and her
mission. She's going to do that, and she's going to take that as far as she can go to get answers. That's what
she's focused on.
How are Martha and Alexis dealing with Castle's absence?
DA: They've had a really difficult time. In episode one, there's a protracted investigation that doesn't really
yield So there's several months of having of happened. They're
