When “Castle” airs its 100th episode a little bit later on during season 5, there is one thing that you should know straight out of the gate: this is not going to be the sort of supremely emotional hour of television that we are going to see from either of the two episodes that are coming up concerning Alexis Castle’s kidnapping. As a matter of fact, this installment is going to be used instead to celebrate the legacy of the show as a means to tell funny, creative mysteries that really show off the relationship between Castle and Beckett to full effect.
Speaking in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Andrew W. Marlowe does his best to explain just what sort of plans he has in store at the moment for this installment, which will hopefully do a very good job at entertaining even if it does not reinvent the wheel:
“The two-parter is so big that in an ideal universe it would have landed in the 100 slot … And so 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.”
There will be some nods in this episode that nod back to some of the series’ past, and hopefully along the way we are also going to hopefully see some welcome guest stars to add to the enjoyment.
While we don’t have much more for the time being, be sure to keep coming back. After all, we’ll have much more scoop when it comes to the show as soon as it is revealed.
