The Castle world is abuzz with excitement over Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett’s (Stana Katic) engagement — and even though Alexis (Molly Quinn) is hurt because she wasn’t privy to her dad’s swing-set proposal before it happened, the mystery writer’s mom, Martha (Susan Sullivan), is happy enough for the both of them.
When Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with Susan at the screening of Castle at the Paley Center for Media on September 30 in Beverly Hills, she told us all about Martha’s engagement excitement.
Though Susan wasn’t certain that Martha will play a role in the wedding planning, she made a pretty solid case for why Castle’s mom would and should be involved.
“Of course she would get involved,” she began. “Beckett doesn’t have a mom, so I would, but I think I would kinda be more mothering of her this season.”
Unlike Alexis, Susan says that Martha is “delighted” by the impending nuptials. “I think she thinks that they are a good couple. I think she has a few little reservations but you know, I think Martha likes to see people work it out. That’s why she’s interested in Alexis and Pi.”
Ah yes, the other couple of the loft! While Susan admitted that her on-screen granddaughter and Pi probably aren’t a match made in heaven, she thinks Martha would want Alexis to have that experience.
“I think she thinks life is an adventure and the more experiences you have the richer your adventure,” Susan says of Martha’s point of view.
