Under Fire: Preview By Seamus & Juliana Dever

CASTLE returns with a bang for its first episode of 2014, “Under Fire”: not only are Ryan and Esposito’s lives in danger, but Ryan’s wife, Jenny, is very, very, very pregnant. 

To get a little bit more info about the hour, I spoke with reel- and real-life married couple, Seamus and Juliana Dever (Ryan and Jenny) about what’s going down… 

The next hour is a big one for Jenny and Ryan! What can you tease about the episode? Juliana Dever: It’s really dramatic — it’s a nail-biter! This is one where instead of going for the comedy, we’re going to put people on the edges of their seats. 

[Ryan] and Esposito actually go to investigate an arsonist and get trapped in a burning building. And as soon as Jenny realizes that Ryan might not be by her side for the birth, she races to the crime scene, in labor, and refuses to leave. So it looks like she might have to have her baby right then and there. And she really wants [her husband] to be there, but it looks like he might not be, and he might not even make it out alive to see a child grow up. Seamus Dever: A real light episode, basically. 

Did you have to do a lot of stunts for the episode, Seamus? SD: Yeah, a few. I don’t know if you’d call them a stunt. There’s a fine line of a stunt and “do I fall down a bunch?” you know? [Laughs] Anybody can fall down. You don’t have to bring in a specialist for that. A few things, here and there. 

It was dirty. It was a very dirty episode. By the end, we were all exhausted, we left everything out there on the floor. We wanted our best effort out there, because they were giving us this opportunity to do something really cool, and for Esposito and Ryan, we’ve never done before. 

I think you’re going to see some growing of the bromance here. And maybe, my favorite Esposito/Ryan moment of all time. I think it’s going to be good. 

Nice. We haven’t seen too much of the pregnancy on-screen thus far, so aside from the dangerous case, will we be digging into some of the fun baby things like names, how they’re going to raise him/her, etc? JD: You’ll definitely hear some conversations about it, but it may not be in the way you think. SD: We’re talking about what the name of the baby is going to be because we don’t necessarily know the sex of the child, so Castle is trying to pitch some names. JD: And we all know his taste in naming babies. Cosmo! SD: So [the rest of the team] puts their two cents in. 

Well, Castle does have a normal-named child with Alexis…but I am surprised he’s not throwing in Richard or something like that as his choice. JD: I think Alexis’ mom had something to do with her normal name. [Laughs] SD: Maybe she had some influence. 

Aside from this fire situation with this particular case, is there any concern about this family’s safety? After all, 3XK is on the loose… SD: Well, we just finished ["Under Fire"], so as far as the future goes for Kevin and Jenny, I can’t tell you what’s going to be happening. There is always the 3XK. He’s always had something to do with all of us, and the last time he came around, it was very personal for Esposito and Lanie, so we’ll see if he hits home again like that. That mythology keeps growing, who knows who it will impact next.
