GMMR: Andrew Marlowe and David Amann on Opening Up a New Mythology, Dream Guest Stars, and More

CASTLE’s sixth season ended in a way many fans didn’t expect: instead of Castle and Beckett tying the knot, he disappeared on the way to their wedding…and was presumed dead. But since the show is called CASTLE, it’s fairly safe to say the show won’t be going down that tragic path.

To get a little bit of insight into what’s to come, I sat down with CASTLE creator, Andrew Marlowe, and new showrunner, David Amann, to talk about season 7, how Castle’s absence is impacting the people who care about him most, and more…

What can you preview about the premiere?

David Amann: It’s going to be dealing with the aftermath of what happened in the season finale. We have some really intriguing questions that are going to arise from this about what happened to Castle. So we’re going to raise some interesting questions for the next couple of episodes in terms of what happened to Castle and why. It opens us up for some great mythology opportunities for CASTLE that we’ll also be probably revisiting later in the season.

Molly Quinn Talks Teary Finale, the Alexis-Kate Tension That Follows

Castle‘s Molly Quinn echoes many a viewer when she says that ending Season 6 with the title character burned to a crisp in a car wreck is “the last thing I expected them to do.”

Visiting TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con video suite, the actress expounded on her reaction, saying the scene — even more impactful as played out on screen as on the page — “put me to my knees…. I was in tears.”

Regardless of how Castle extricates Castle from that seeming fiery death, the immediate aftermath of it all will affect two of the ladies in his life. With a nod to the Season 6 scene where Alexis and Kate (finally) had an apres-proposal heart-to-heart, Quinn says, “I was glad they addressed that [daughter/fiancee relationship], but this season… there’s some Alexis/Kate tension, if you will” in the Sept. 29 premiere, at least. “It’s a tough relationship,” she notes.

Matt's Inside Line: What About Esplanie?

Any scoop on Castle’s Esplainie?–Marine

In a word from series creator Andrew W. Marlowe, “Yeah” – but I truly believe him, based on some body language I picked up on as he said. It. “We do have a couple of things that we’re working on, in that relationship,” he added. (To which I suggested: They should quickly make use of the wedding venue! He laughed: “If only we could go back there and afford the location fee!”)

Mega Buzz: New Nemesis?

Can you tell me who ran Castle off the road in last year's Castle finale? — Diana

Nope, but I can certainly tell you who didn't. For fans convinced that last year's fiery cliff-hanger was brought on by either existing nemeses Bracken and 3XK or even Castle's own father, allow new showrunner David Amann to burst your bubble. "The mythology we're getting into is going to go past all that into some new territory," he says. "Those are all fair game, but it's not going to be what the opening of the season is about." What the new season is about is unearthing new secrets about Castle. But how will that impact the Castle-Beckett relationship? "Things that are going to come to light that are going to be unsettling for Beckett," Amann teases. "But we're committed to that relationship. I don't think what happened to Castle is going to disrupt the trajectory of that relationship, at least not in the long term."

Matt's Inside Line: No Two-Parter?

Got any Castle scoop? Like, guest cast or who’s writing 7×02? –Sandra

On the casting front, you probably have seen this fresh bit of scoop. As for the writer of Episode 2, which involves the murder of a toy mogul, that’d be a gentleman named Andrew W. Marlowe. (IOW, the premiere isn’t a two-parter per se.)
Greetings from Germany! You talked to Castle‘s Andrew Marlowe and David Amann. Soooo, is there anything else they shared about the new season in their interview? –Mandy

Greetings from America! Your new showrunner Amann teased “a really fun episode,” somewhere in the first four of the season, “that deals with what seems to be an invisible killer — and the characters take a lot of pleasure in that.”

TVLine: Castle Books Wire Alum for Pivotal Season 7 Guest Stint

Castle is turning to Truck to solve its big car-crash cliffhanger.

He’ll play Tagger, a Hamptons police sergeant who helps Beckett investigate the most difficult case of her career (presumably, Who the hell ran Rick off the road?).
