As you may already be aware, “Castle” is celebrating its 100th episode right now on set. On Feb. 27, pictures of the celebration, which included a big “Castle” cake and some special champagne flutes have been coming in left and right on Twitter from cast, crew, and some TV journalists who are there for the party.
If you happened to take a closer look at the picture of the centerpiece that camera man Andy Bikichky posted, you would see that the book centerpiece actually contained two pages of a script that we can only assume are from the 100th episode of the series, 5x19 “The Lives of Others.” The episode is slated to air on Apr. 1, which is coincidentally, Richard Castle’s birthday.
Here’s a transcription of what can be made out of the two pages. Be forewarned, this could very well be major spoilers!
Almost there. Only two more weeks.
But it’s already been two weeks.
Two weeks is an eternity.
Well, maybe next time we go skiing,
you won’t be such a show off.
I wasn’t showing off.
(off her look)
Okay, fine. I was showing off, but
I swear. I can do […]-grab with
my eyes closed… […]
Martha [enters?] carrying […]
I don’t call you on your birthday,
it’s not because I’ve forgotten.
She comes over to give him a kiss.
Oh, I won’t think it’s because
you’ve forgotten. I’ll think it’s
because you made other plans.
Well, what did you want me to [do?]
You and Beckett were supposed to [be]
celebrating in Bora Bora this [week?]
No, you’re right. Have a […]
at your retreat, on your [only son’s]
It’s a spa trip, not a guilt [trip]
He’s all yours. See you in a week.
Martha crosses back to her luggage and heads for the door.
C’mon, Castle. Stop feeling sorry
for yourself. I’ll get us a
reservation and take you somewhere
nice for your birthday.
As nice as Bora Bora?
(calling from the door)
Kate, your ride’s here.
They turn to see ESPO and RYAN enter as Martha scoots off.
[??? Centerpiece in the way]
take me with you. Please.
Uh uh. We talked about this. Not
until you’re better… Hey guys,
just let me grab my coat.
Beckett crosses to the bedroom, as the boys land.
Hey Castle, how’s the knee?
The knee’s not the problem. It’s
I thought writers like being alone.
If I could write. But the
painkillers make me loopy. Last
night I used the word “speculate”
in three consecutive sentences.
Ryan drifts past him to the window, spots a pair of
binoculars sitting on a table. He holds them up.
So basically, it looks like “The Lives of Others” is going to be just like Hitchcock’s “Rear Window” film. Will Castle spot a murder from his apartment?
