In light of Monday”s (April 15) tragedy at the 2013 Boston Marathon, ABC”s “Castle” is delaying its upcoming episode, which included a bomb-related storyline.
Stana Katic confirmed the news on her Twitter page by tweeting, “ABC Pulls Monday”s Bomb-Themed #Castle http://t.co/xj3FweEzWn Yes. Out of respect. Please note that the chronology will b off.”
The episode features Miss Katic holding a pressure sensitive bomb as her team tries to disarm it while co-star Nathan Fillion distracted her from panicking. ABC will reschedule the episode for a later appropriate time.
Not only was Castle forced to pull an episode, Fox decided to pull an episode of “Family Guy” from rotation and online viewing of cartoon character Peter Griffin hitting marathon runners after users from YouTube altered the video.
