How has Castle and Beckett being together impacted how you’re able to work cases into the show? Tonight’s episode takes place in the Hamptons, for instance…
Andrew Marlowe: Yes, the episode in the Hamptons, that should be fun. A lot of really good stuff in that. That episode is called “Murder, He Wrote,” and the reason it’s called that is because it’s a little nod to MURDER SHE WROTE. They go out to have a nice relaxing vacation in the Hamptons and a case stumbles into their backyard, literally, when they’re about to take a little night swim in the pool. Somebody staggers up, having just been shot, and collapses in the pool. And in MURDER SHE WROTE, the cases were always coming to her. That’s something that hasn’t really happened in CASTLE in our first 85 episodes, but when they’re out in the Hamptons…they land smack dab in the middle of a case when they’re just trying to get away for the weekend and wild hijinks ensue. And by the way, they need some help from New York to solve the case, but nobody from the precinct knows they’re together, so they have to hide that.
That’s a bit troublesome since that means they’ll be lying to cops. Obviously, the New York cops are their coworkers, but it’s not a good start.
AM: That’s right. It’s fun.
