Castle‘s epic two-part episode is leaving 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. There has been some spoiler talk in the media – let’s see what is there.
Castle’s executive producer Andrew Marlowe dished to EW: “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.
Marlowe also spoke with CNN and here’s what she shared with them: “For the 100th we wanted the quintessential ‘Castle’ show — something that was fun, something with great Castle-Beckett stuff in it. We’re really excited with the direction it’s going in.”
Marlow also shares his thoughts with Gimmemyremote.com – about the 100th episode and writing it with Terri Edda Miller: “Here’s what we decided, The Bracken episode episode 13, of this year, was pretty grand and operatic, and the two-parter is [also] pretty grand and operatic. What I wanted for the 100th episode was a real classic, fun, bouncy, Castle episode, with some great Castle-Beckett stuff in it. Something that’s really a quintessential example of what we do here. That’s really what I’m aiming for. We’re going to be hitting some big notes towards the end of the season and I didn’t want to steal any thunder from that. So what I’m hoping for is an episode the fans just love for all the reasons they love Castle. We’ve certainly blown some money on the two-parter and we have to buy some of that back…it helps in the scope of our season, because as much as 100 means a lot in terms of a round number, it’s also an episode that lies in an odd place in our season. And I feel like I have to honor a season of viewership, so we can go out with a bang and we’re not stealing thunder from the stuff we want to do later in the season.”
