Richard Castle’s hurting — and it’s not easy to watch. In fact, it’s downright heartbreaking.
After learning in last week’s episode that Beckett (Stana Katic) remembered everything about being shot (including, you’ll recall, Castle’s confession of love), Castle (Nathan Fillion) is looking for a way to deal with an influx of disappointment. His solution? Apparently flaunting a blonde in front of Beckett in tonight’s episode! But there’s so much more underneath his playboy guise, says executive producer and creator Andrew Marlowe.
“I think he feels like if he confronts her, it’s just gonna be a big ego blow, so it’s better for him to swallow it at this point, which gives us a little bit of drama in the next couple episodes,” he says. And with only four episodes (including tonight’s) left in the rest of the season, the drama will come fast and furious, stemming first from the fact that poor Beckett has no idea why Castle is giving her the cold shoulder. But her confusion and — in a way — her sense of loss from his apparent “drifting away” could prompt Beckett to make some bold actions. “She’s wondering if she needs to declare herself, and she’s feeling ready…but then he’s acting out. So his behavior is going to be a little challenging to her, and it puts us in an interesting place for the next couple episodes,” Marlowe says.
