Castle > Season 6 > Screen Captures > 6×18 – The Way of the Ninja
THE PERFORMER | Stana Katic
THE SHOW | Castle
THE EPISODE | “In the Belly of the Beast”
THE AIRDATE | March 3, 2014
THE PERFORMANCE | It was an unusual yet seemingly manageable assignment for NYPD Detective Kate Beckett — to do the narcotics division a solid by posing as low-level drug dealer Elena Markov and thus hopefully get eyes on a big fish dubbed “Lazarus.” But no sooner did the undercover op get underway, it went horribly awry.
As Beckett was abducted and lobbed into the back of a van, Katic at first showed us a cop who kept relatively cool and collected, hoping that her oral narrative about where and how far she was being taken was being picked up by her wire. (No such luck.) When Beckett learned that “Elena” was not at all a courier but a stone-cold assassin, she improvised to alter the identity she had only recently assumed, and Katic met her alter ego every step of the way.
But once the jig was up — Lazurus’ go-between, Vulcan Simmons, recognized his onetime tormentor right away — Katic’s arduous on-screen journey truly began. Vulcan sought to wrest intel from Beckett, subjecting her to water torture her in a dark, dank anteroom. Yet Beckett somehow held her cards close to the vest, sometimes all but hissing with defiance at her adversary.
Katic also brought emotion to vastly different moments, first as Kate penned a “goodbye” letter to Rick (wearing her heart on her pen and paper like we’ve never observed before), and then after the lovers had reunited, expressing to her fiance how he, in spirit, was with her every step of the way, reinforcing her resolve to endure the nightmare.
Lastly, in a killer coda, Katic registered Kate’s disgust to learn who Lazarus really was, and to what despicable end — a reveal that reignited her zeal to one day take best her “Moby Dick,” the slippery, sinister Senator Bracken.
Is it possible for someone to find out why there have only been two sightings of Kate Beckett’s engagement ring on Castle this season? –Dan
I am your someone, Dan. And this someone hand-delivered your Q to Stana Katic. “The important thing to remember is that Beckett is a detective, so she can’t wear things that will identify her, she can’t wear things like that on her hands that would distract from the conversation, that could be stolen, that could possibly hinder her when she’s shooting or hand-fighting,” she explained. Also, Katic said, the ring “is something that Beckett’s very protective of, because she loves it, so on occasion, if it’s like a big event or maybe a private moment outside of being in bed, she can wear it. But having it on display at the work place is not appropriate, especially as a detective.”
This week’s episode of Castle was great, I don’t think they’ll be able to top that this season. What should we expect in the next episodes? –Cami
As you may have read, Eureka‘s Salli Richardson-Whitfield will guest-star in Episode 19, “The Greater Good,” as Captain Gates’ estranged, U.S. Attorney sister. Up after that is the already buzzy “That ’70s Show” episode, in which character actor Jon Polito (Millers Crossing, Barton Fink) will play Harold Leone, the onetime consigliere to an infamous mobster who disappeared in 1978.
He’s baaaaaaaaack. Well, sort of.
The presence of Castle‘s resident bad guy Sen. Bracken (Jack Coleman) was felt throughout Monday night’s episode, but the politician wasn’t exactly seen.
You see, after Beckett (Stana Katic) went undercover to infiltrate a very powerful (and apparently high-paying) drug cartel, she found herself in the perfect position to go after the organizations big boss, Lazarus. After setting up a meeting with him — and proving herself in order to be deemed worthy of the meeting — she found herself face-to-face with Vulcan Simmons (Keith David), the man once accused of murdering her mother. As you can imagine, it wasn’t a happy reunion.
A brief (and terrifying) session of water torture later, she was out in the woods with one of Simmons’ hired assassins about to be killed. Then, a surprise: the assassin spared her life. Why? Because Lazarus — the real one — ordered it.
So who was the real Lazarus? There was no evidence that would hold up in court, but Beckett had loose connections that proved it was Sen. Bracken, who, as you’ll recall, owed her a favor for saving his life. With their score now even, in normal circumstances, Beckett would be in big danger — but there’s a new factor also in play. Beckett pieced together (again, in a way that would not hold up on court) that Bracken had been laundering money into an organization to fund his run for the presidency. Yes, Bracken is running for president. And. This. Changes. Everything.
“All that means is that Beckett as a threat to him is bigger than before, and he’s going to try to take care of it,” says Katic, who says she was happy to see the Sen. Bracken storyline revisited. “I think that the stakes are much larger for the Bracken character, which makes him a greater threat. It’s a different game at this point. ”
Following the reveal, however, fans shouldn’t expect to see Beckett go off the deep end in search of bringing down Bracken. While that may have been her reaction at one time, Katic says Beckett has “evolved.” “She was initially reactive. It was an emotional trigger for her to [revisit] that part of her history. And at this point, she’s evolved into a more lethal weapon. She is a character who is able to receive the information and assess in a less emotional, more responsive way and in a more Zen-like manner, which makes her a viper, I think,” she says. “The triggers aren’t there anymore. She can assess the situation. She can keep herself protected and get the bad guy. And I think that that’s a really interesting character evolution.”
Also notable in the nail-biting episode was the scene in which Beckett wrote a heartfelt letter to Castle, and hid it for him to find in case she didn’t make it out of the dangerous mission alive. “What’s nice about that scene and the love story in this episode is that we get an insight into the inner monologue that goes on inside Beckett,” says Katic. “We don’t often get to have those private conversations with Beckett…and in this episode, we get a chance to see how deep that love is for him.” Katic saw the scene as a nice callback to the character’s infamous “one and done” line from earlier in the series. “You know, this is it for her. She’s found the love of her life and when a character faces their own mortality, they want to make sure that everything is taken care of and the people they love the most know it,” says Katic. “You see that in that scene. It’s nice the way they laid that out.”
