CASTLE: David Amann Teases the ‘Fantastic’ ‘Reckoning’

February 13, 2015 by  


3XK/Jerry Tyson returned to the CASTLE scene in a major way with Monday’s episode, “Resurrection”: after being presumed-dead, he resurfaced (along with Dr. Nieman) long enough to claim he was another man who had surgery to look like Tyson…and for Beckett to be drugged and kidnapped, while Tyson and Nieman were at the precinct.

The second hour of the show’s nearly-annual two-parter, “Reckoning,” is perhaps even more intense than “Resurrection” (and maybe ten times as twisted), a fact CASTLE boss David Amann attributed, in part, to the team who helped bring it to life.

“[‘Reckoning’ was] written by Andrew Marlowe, the creator of the show, who wrote a wonderful, wonderful script,” Amann gushed. “And it had fantastic direction from Rob Bowman, who is our producing-director. I can’t say enough about that episode; I think it’s fantastic.”

The hour picks up nearly immediately after “Resurrection” ended, as Castle discovered that Beckett had walked into a trap.

“Castle and the 12th precinct are faced with the disappearance of Beckett, presumably at the hands of 3XK, and possibly Kelly Nieman,” Amann teased. “So the search is on to try and find her and find out what happened to her.”

And while Castle and Beckett have been through a number of traumatic experiences — both together and apart — since they started working together, this is the biggest obstacle the duo have faced since tying the knot.

“Castle is very much at the center of that effort, and very much has skin in the game,” Amann allowed. “In a way…he finds himself in the situation Beckett was in [at] the beginning of the season, where he had disappeared and she didn’t know where he was. So now he has a little bit of a sense in looking for her the same kind of terrible situation she was in. And he is going to play a big role in trying to find her.”

As the team searches desperately for her, viewers will also be made to wait a bit to find out what has happened to her.

“Much like the first episode of the season, we are focused mainly in the episode on the search for Beckett, [so] her whereabouts and condition are unknown for a better part of the show,” Amann previewed. “So we don’t really have as much a chance to access what is going on with her [mindset], initially.”

Are you counting down the minutes until CASTLE’s next episode? And make sure to check back after the hour for more from Amann…

CASTLE airs Mondays at 10 PM on ABC.

    Yes, counting the seconds to this fabulous show Called Castle! I love seeing Castle as a man and not a boy. The desperation he shows for finding Beckett makes me love Caskett even more. God Bless the writers for bringing us another 2-parter. Let’s all watch LIVE to have great ratings.

    I’m impressed, I should say. Truly rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your concept is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough individuals are speaking intelligently about. I am quite happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

There is definitely some validity but I will take hold opinion until I take a appear at it further. Good write-up , thanks and that we want a whole lot far more! Combined with FeedBurner in addition
