ABC has decided to postpone a bomb-themed episode of their popular drama Castle in the wake of the tragic events that unfolded at the Boston Marathon earlier this week. The episode, which was originally slated to air on on Monday, April 22, will now air a week later on Monday, April 29.  

According to The Hollywood Reporter the episode titled “Still” revolves around “NYPD Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) accidentally tripping the sensor on a bomb, leaving her unable to move or detonate it causing Ryan (Seamus Dever) and Esposito (Jon Huertas) to search for the bomber to disarm it.”

ABC isn’t the only TV network to have repsonded accordingly to the sensitivity of the attack which claimed the lives of three people and injured over a hundred. On Monday night, NBC pre-empted their post-apocalyptic drama Revolution with a Nightly News special about the Boston bombings.
