Castle: 100th Episode Dish
I wouldn’t consider this particularly spoilery, but read at your own risk!
Castle‘s epic two-part episode is going to leave us with our jaws on the floor, but as all the loyal fans know, the show also has a big milestone 100th episode coming up. So how is the show going to top the former? Easy: It will dazzle us in different ways. “The two-parter is so big that in an ideal universe it would have landed in the 100 slot,” explains executive producer Andrew Marlowe. “And so for episode 100, we didn’t feel like we could do the kind of storytelling that just blows it out because [we had] just done something really huge. So what we’re looking to do is an episode that is a classic, charming, wonderful, surprising Castle episode that’ll be a lot of fun and feature all of our characters in a really great way.”
While the official storyline for the ep is something Marlowe has under construction, he says the episode will have some “small” callbacks to older seasons, “but it’s going to be more of a great, classic Castle episode.” “As much as our loyal fans would love us to do something out of bounds and crazy, we’re going to do something we think is a lot of fun and a little nod to them and have a chance to play around with the Castle-Beckett relationship in a fun way,” he said.
He adds: “We were having an over balance of big storytelling in the spring, and we don’t want to let go of the fun and we want to have a good moment with the Castle-Beckett relationship and we’re planning on having something interesting at the end of the season, which is coming up really quickly,” he says. “It’s an episode that is kind of sandwiched in an odd area, so we kind of have to honor the viewing experience.”
I don’t think we can argue with that, right, guys?
