CASTLE: Andrew Marlowe on Ryan’s Baby News, Plus a Tease for ‘Still’
March 26, 2013 by Marisa Roffman
CASTLE viewers got a little bit more insight into Ryan’s backstory in Monday night’s episode, “The Wild Rover,” but the ending also provided a little glimpse into what his future holds: his wife, Jenny, is pregnant! But given that this is an ensemble show — and that Ryan and Jenny’s relationship is the most committed one the series currently has — I was curious what impact the upcoming addition would have on the expectant parents and Ryan’s coworkers.
“We’re trying to figure it out,” CASTLE creator Andrew Marlowe told me. “When people find out they’re pregnant, they don’t tell people right away. They’re in that nervous-anxious period where they’re waiting to get to the three months [of the pregnancy, when it's generally safer]. Most of that stuff is going to be unfolding next season, assuming all goes well and we’re granted a next season.”
However, Marlowe could tease a little bit about the upcoming “bonus” episode, “Still,” which CASTLE star Seamus Dever (Ryan) had previously hinted was “going to look a little bit different.”
“[It's] an emotionally charged episode,” Marlowe noted. “In the process of doing an investigation into a bombing, Beckett triggers a bomb and is put in a position where she can’t move or the bomb is going to go off. It’s a high-stakes, high-tension episode.”
So, nothing at all stressful about that, right?
Are you looking forward to seeing Ryan and Jenny with a baby? And are you intrigued by “Still”?
