Spoilers: New Year, New Spoilers

Here are some spoilers for the upcoming episodes of Castle.

With Castle on hiatus until January 6, have you been privy to anything happening when they return in the new year? –Kate
Sigh. Sorry, There’s only this bit of casting…. For Episode 15 aka “Smells Like Teen Spirit” (which otherwise revolves around the “mean girl” community at a tony prep school), the ABC drama is casting the role of a perky Realtor. WAIT A SECOND, HOLD THE PHONE. Are you thinking what I’m thinking?!

It sounds as though Jenny’s due date has been moved up to January 6th and the spoilers for Castle Season 6 Episode 11 say that Ryan may not make the delivery. 

Juliana: It’s far more dramatic than you might expect. It’s one of those things where Kevin and Jenny have always planned that Kevin will be there with her in the hospital when this happens. It turns out that he gets trapped in a burning building with Esposito and Jenny rushes, in labor to be by his side rather than go to the hospital. So there’s a great concern about whether Kevin is going to be there for the delivery, but even bigger is will he even be there to see his child.

Will we be seeing more of Jenny this season?

Juliana: We never know until it happens but we hope so. We’ve got a baby to raise. That’s if Kevin makes it out alive… so there’s that wrinkle.

After all of this do you think the Ryans will have more children?

Juliana: Assuming that there’s a Kevin around, they are an Irish Catholic family. I would assume they wouldn’t just have an only child. I’m sure they’re looking to add a couple of children to their family.

Seamus: Every Irish Catholic family we know has at least four kids so maybe it’s possible.

Juliana, how exactly did you end up being a part of the Castle family?

Juliana: Seamus has been there from the start and the rumors are true. Everyone that works on Castle, it’s a pretty tight knit group. It’s a real family. As soon as he was there, I was there kind of getting to know everybody and getting to love everybody and vice versa, I hope? But I auditioned for several roles and at the time that Kevin started talking about his girlfriend. Seamus brought that up and lobbied for that.

They wanted to write something for me where I didn’t just have one episode, where I showed up as a lawyer and that was it. They wanted something where I could continue to recur. It kind of was that perfect idea of that if he’s going to have a girlfriend why not make that the character that Juliana is part of.  So they kind of brought me in and I’ve been his girlfriend, fiancee, wife, ever since.

Anything else you can tease us about going into the rest of the season?

Seamus: We’re about to head into our annual two-parter and I hope that I have something to do with that because they’re always a lot of fun and the stakes are always really high. So we’ll see what happens with that and hopefully for the rest of the year we’ll find out a little bit more about Ryan being a father and we’ll see some more of Jenny around.

The next hour is a big one for Jenny and Ryan! What can you tease about the episode?
Juliana Dever: It’s really dramatic — it’s a nail-biter! This is one where instead of going for the comedy, we’re going to put people on the edges of their seats.

[Ryan] and Esposito actually go to investigate an arsonist and get trapped in a burning building. And as soon as Jenny realizes that Ryan might not be by her side for the birth, she races to the crime scene, in labor, and refuses to leave. So it looks like she might have to have her baby right then and there. And she really wants [her husband] to be there, but it looks like he might not be, and he might not even make it out alive to see a child grow up.
Seamus Dever: A real light episode, basically.

Nice. We haven’t seen too much of the pregnancy on-screen thus far, so aside from the dangerous case, will we be digging into some of the fun baby things like names, how they’re going to raise him/her, etc?
JD: You’ll definitely hear some conversations about it, but it may not be in the way you think.
SD: We’re talking about what the name of the baby is going to be because we don’t necessarily know the sex of the child, so Castle is trying to pitch some names.
JD: And we all know his taste in naming babies. Cosmo!
SD: So [the rest of the team] puts their two cents in.

Well, Castle does have a normal-named child with Alexis…but I am surprised he’s not throwing in Richard or something like that as his choice.
JD: I think Alexis’ mom had something to do with her normal name. [Laughs]
SD: Maybe she had some influence.
