Castle Is Heading for a Wedding – Will It Get Rick and Kate Ready for Romance?

Get More: Previews, Scoop

When ABC’s Castle returns with fresh episodes on Monday, Jan. 9, the first episode back will feature the wedding of Detective Kevin Ryan to the lovely Jenny Duffy-O’Malley. But will the undeniable romance of the big day spill over into the long-simmering but oft-stifled Castle/Beckett relationship, and maybe light a fire under those two?

For starters, Stana Katic tells us this much: Romance was in abundant supply during the filming of the episode, seeing as the fictional nuptials starred real-life marrieds Seamus and Juliana Dever, who play Kevin and Jenny.

“It was such a beautiful thing,” Beckett’s portrayer tells TVLine of shooting the ceremony. “I loved being able to see Juliana walk in with her wedding gown, because it was the kind of gown that she wanted when they were young actors getting married but they didn’t have the finances they needed to make the wedding as large as maybe it would have been in their dreams. This was a chance to kind of do a ‘second take,’ and it was fantastic to be a part of that real-life experience as well as that ‘movie-life’ experience.”

But returning to the million-dollar question — might the exchange of vows get Rick and Kate in the mood to finally take a leap of their own, and pursue a romance? – Katic echoes that which Seamus Dever recently told TV Guide Magazine. (After all, “Caskett” did just spend an entire episode handcuffed to each other, for better or for worse; anything else is merely legal documentation.)

“There’s a bit of foreshadowing for the future, yes,” she told us with a playful chuckle.

  • I’m curious of the Dever’s had any actual family there as extras (so it really was like having a second wedding)?

    • i was gunna say that. that would have been nice of the castle people to use various family members as extras.

  • Aww, I almost got a little teary when Katic made the remark about the wedding dress. Very sweet.

  • Sounds like they’re queuing up something big to happen between Castle and Beckett during February sweeps which would be the obvious time to do it.

    • Ooh, I hope so! Maybe a Valentine’s Day-themed episode, since the episode would theoretically air the day before VDay?

  • Ugh, I just know that Marlowe will finally start to bring Castle and Beckett together, only for Beckett to find out about the info on her mom’s case Castle stowed away, putting the kibosh on romance for at least another season. Otherwise, why else hasn’t that info been addressed? Damn you, Marlowe! I see your little tricks!

    • I know, right? And there’s also the tidbit that Beckett remembers everything from the shooting. You know those two plot points are going to come up at the most untimely moment and put a wedge between them.

      • Or….by the time those things come into play, they could be in a strong enough place in their relationship, that they can deal with them and move on. Hey…a girl can dream, right?

  • This second half sounds better and better, even though the season so far has been wonderfully fun.

  • Awwww. So cute about Juliana’s dress. I love that they are actually married and get to work with each other like that.

  • What i love about the show is how they have Rick doing the more creative job and Beckett the more business job. The dynamic of them being equals yet still going forward together is never boring. Amazing chemistry between the actors and charming entertainment full writing.

  • Leave it to Castle to make me wish my Christmas vacation was already over… I’m so looking forward to what will happen on this show in the new year. Is it January yet? :-)

  • Is January 9th next Monday? Can’t wait to see it. ;)

  • Nathan Fillion and James Roday [Psych] both need to strike lucrative deals with Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers or Nutri-system as spokesmen. They are giving their cinematographers nightmares shooting around their increasing girth.

    • So true no one has made any kind of comment on this. Love both shows but these guys need some kind of diet!!

    • I’m with you on that. In person, he’s a very tall guy and yeah he’s putting on the LB’s. He might want to be careful, it doesn’t help his bad knees.
      SK might want to be careful as well. She likes to run and those monster heel are gonna take a toll on her knees sooner or later.

  • I just can’t wait to watch the next epi. Castle became my favorite tv show ever. And Katic is so sweet. <3

  • This is Castle, so don’t expect much more than a really really good and funny episode. Some people were disappointed in”Cuffed”, they expected more. Come on guys, 4.10 was unbelievably funny, and creepy all at the same time. Enjoy what you’re watching, everything will come around by season five. Until then the C/B relationship will stroll along.

  • Considering the fact that ABC demanded an extra episode for Castle, episode “23″, we’re gonna have to wait longer for the ACTUAL romance thing. I think Andrew Marlowe has done a very good job so far in the C/B relationship. He’s stretching it, but in a way that doesn’t stress us, but makes us go along with it, you know what I mean? Instead of getting frustrated and yelling, *which I did with Booth and Bones* we’re actually liking it. Or at least I do.
    I love all those playful teasing scenes and light moments between the two, it really makes me grin my head off. :D
    As much as I want these two to get together, I don’t mind waiting. Shocker, I know. xD
