Beckett is going under cover in this week’s episode of Castle, but her plan to be home before dinner won’t go according to plan.
In tonight’s harrowing episode, the detective is going to find herself in one of her most precarious positions yet — and we’re talking about a woman who has been shot, nearly blown up, and almost froze to death. “It was an exciting episode to film because we had the A-team working on it,” Katic says of the episode, penned by creator Andrew W. Marlowe and David Amann and directed by Rob Bowman. “It just felt like an episode where the people involved were all-in, and we were committed to making a story that was different for Castle.”
For one, the hour is much more cinematic than usual, says Katic, and “it raises the stakes for the characters. It re-mythologizes some of the darker elements of her past,” she says. “A couple of dragons are awakened in this episode.”
In all, “Beckett’s going to be in more danger than she’s ever been before,” Katic previews. “You just don’t know if she’s going to get out alive.”
Castle airs Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
