'Castle' cast talks season 5 finale and hopes for season 6 (Video)
Warning: For those who haven't seen the season 5 finale of "Castle," consider this a major spoiler alert.
When viewers last left Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and New York City homicide detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), Castle was bent down on one knee delivering an unexpected proposal to a surprised Beckett.
Of course, the episode ended before the audience was able to find out Beckett's answer, but OTRC.com correspondent Tony Cabrera caught up with some of the show's cast members recently. While they did not share any secrets about the upcoming season, they did talk about how they would like to see the Castle and Beckett relationship play out.
"Well, as a fan of the show, I look at it as his mother," actress Susan Sullivan, who plays Castle's mother Martha, said. "I'm totally immersed in this character. I think I worry about him with this woman, to be quite honest with you."
"I think they have to play this proposal out. So, that's what I would hope it would be about and I would think, if she had a brain cell working, she would accept. So there. Quote that," she added. "And not get married until the end of season 8."
Molly C. Quinn, who plays Castle's daughter Alexis on the series, said she was excited about the big moment in the script.
"I remember reading the script and I was like, 'No way. No way.' And you know, now when I read the script I can see Nathan and I can see Stana doing it and it was -- you know I got a little teary-eyed like, 'Oh my god.' Cause she did not come into this ready to say yes, she came in to break it off," Quinn said. "So is she going to switch it around now? Like what's going to happen? It was -- I felt with everyone who loves this show just that, you know, my heart stopped."
Quinn also shared with OTRC.com her vision of how season 6 would start.
"I'd probably have Nathan like in the kitchen and we don't know if he's tired or kind of depressed. We still don't know if she said yes or no and then he starts making breakfast and then are those two omelets he's making? Maybe Alexis is home. Wait who's that coming out of the bedroom? It's Beckett," Quinn said. "That's how I would do it and show that the relationship is going to continue but of course that's just what I would do if I could write the episode and could direct it."
Tamala Jones plays Dr. Lanie Parish, a medical examiner, on the show and the actress believes the fans are in for the best season yet.
"I know the sixth season is going to be better than any season we've ever done. I can feel it from the cast, from the writers, from everybody," she said. "Everybody is just so excited. I mean, we kind of felt like we would have another season but, we never take anything for granted down on 'Castle.'"
As for her opinion on the big "Castle" season 5 finale cliffhanger, Jones said, "Kate Beckett is a hard nut to crack. It's not easy. She's got things, people she needs to see and things she needs to do and places she needs to go and maybe she'll sacrifice all that for a handsome, a ruggedly handsome man named Castle. We'll have to see next season."
Jones admitted, "I'm a big 'Castle' shipper. I'm a fan of -- even if I wasn't on the show, I would still be a fan."
