Castle > Castle Season Finale Review: Game Changers Galore! > Comments Page 4
I cried when Captain Montgomery said this is my last stand, Beckett was saying - I forgive you! Great episode, well written and totally unexpected. OMG!!!
@Sue Ann, I hear you. Wouldn't it stink if she heard his declaration and wanted to actually move forward, and THEN he gets the package and all of a sudden has this huge dilemma. Does he tell her, send her back down the rabbit hole and possibly lose her forever? Or keep it to himself, knowing had badly she would feel betrayed? Either way, it doesn't look good for the "happily ever after" possibilities.
And you're also right - he had a very loving home and any fool would know that when he was standing there lecturing her about being with guys she doesn't love and that she could be happy if she just reached out for it, that he was talking about himself! His emotions and adoration for her are ALWAYS on his sleeve!
I'd rather Beckett have taken a bullet than Castle as it reinforces what Castle was telling her earlier, about solving the case not being worth her life being taken. But I think she'll come back stronger and more stubborn, ready to put the final pieces together. Can't wait!
BTW Stana Katic is a beautiful individual!
W-O-W!!!! I was crying, I was breathing like a scaredy cat, like I was in the room, in the middle of everything. That was an awesome episode and can't wait for next season!
Like Loudoun, I thought it would have been just a teeeeeeeny bit better for Castle to have taken the bullet and for Beckett to have been the one to say she loved him, since we already knew Castle loved her and their whole conversation earlier was about her inability to discuss what she was feeling about him... but on the whole, wow. Amazing episode. Fantastic work by all the cast. First a sharp shooter on Bones, now one on Castle! And a death on Glee tonight! WHY, TV? WHY ARE YOU PUTTING US THROUGH THESE AWFUL THINGS?! Looking forward to a new Captain bringing a new dynamic into the show the way Cam did for Bones!
You ask... "I canâ€™t help but wonder who is the mastermind behind Lockwoodâ€™s actions?" for me it's only one option....
Mayor of New York City
Poker buddy of Rick Castle, Cpt. Montgomery, Judge Markham and even Beckett! (remember that episode???)
This is how he gain power! Money from 3 dirty cops! Hahahaah! :) Okey... of course it's only my imagination, but who knows? :)))
@ Sue Ann. Esposito was a marine or something before being a cop, that's why he took it harder than Ryan. Brotherhood and the unit etc...
I was stunned at the end of the show when Kate got shot. I felt like my heart had been torn out when Rick told her he loved her. I so much want to see them together. I absolutlely love this show.
Would of been better if Castle took a bullet for Kate, then she would really confess her love.
Morena Baccarin as New Cpt would be awesome casting.
The Finale did entertain compared to the dread of last years.
OMG of all things i figured cptn. Montgomery would die but not for that reason and then Kate Gets shot :O completely unexpected....
OMG and castle and beckett better get together soon....
OVERALL I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH THE ARTICLE
I just thought of another potential complication the writers may exploit next season. With the Captain dead, they will have to get a new Captain, and he or she will have to approve Castle all over again, riding around with Beckett.
I'm also left wondering why Esposito took the revelation of Montgomery's corruption so much more personally than did Ryan, in that bar, and in the alley. Esposito acted like someone insulted his mother. Ryan didn't. This particular relationahip has not been illustrated before, and I would like to know more about it.
I must say, the writers on this show are brilliant. I saw the reason for the death of Montgomery coming the instant he told Ryan and Esposito to kill Lockwood as soon as they saw him. But though I knew what was coming, that did not spoil it; it was fascinating to see how they worked it out, and how they kept a corrupted cop being still a hero rather than a villain. Beckett's wails sounded like she was losing another parent, which
I always thought captain will die and ryan will get shot but it's ahugesuprise to me that it was Kate.
Stana was amazing in this episode!! The part were castle was taking her away from the capt, she broke down, amazing work! It's going to be interesting how they play everything out in season 4. I Cant wait for September!!!!!
I almost had a heart attack dring this episode - I am so caught up in their conversation that, I keep telling(out loud)Castle - what to say, what to do and "can't you see etc. --- my wife is furious with me being so loud - and says she : do it again and you are looking at a "divorce" ???? - and say I : if you do that I'll send the bill to Castle and Stana - it is their "fault". Can't wait till september 17---- Thanks for making my monday/Gustav A. Calgary Alberta Canada
I'm still shaking. DAMN that was good. And, y'know, extremely sad, tense and makes me want to time travel to next season.
Everyone in the main cast was brilliant. Ryan and Esposito's reaction to the Captain picture, the Captain himself, delivering his best performance in the show, Martha giving motherly advice, and of course, Castle and Beckett. Good God, Castle and Beckett.
I think Castle just got in my Top 5 TV Shows of all time.
@ DC -- AAAACCCCCKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I expect you are right. I was wondering who he was mailing that package to, and I figured it was Castle, because the bad guys might not look there, or have access to the mail in what HAS to be a doorman'd building.
What you describe could very well be next season's back story line.
However, I do believe that some addressing will be done to his declaration of love, assuming she heard him. It was hard to tell whether or not she heard him before she lost consciousness. If she did not hear him, he may not bring it up, again. That would be the worst kind of cheating the fans, though.
Did you not love the way his mother was giving him motherly advice? Martha seldom sounds that serious, but it was no laughing matter -- it was vital to her very loved child. It was heartwarming. Martha may have given him a crazy childhood, but it was clear that his was a well-loved childhood. He just has to figure out a way to get Beckett to accept
One more thing. I bet that the Captain sent that envelope to Castle, and THAT is what is going to keep Caskett apart next season. Castle will KNOW who the killer is, but he will not want to let Beckett know that he knows because he will be afraid that she will get killed. But knowing will add distance to their relationship because he will be conflicted. Then, when she eventually finds out, she will feel horribly betrayed, thus leading to more angst. Could happen...!
@ Sue Ann, that's a good point. I wondered about that. I just keep thinking how independent Kate is. If she runs true to form, she'll freak out about Castle's declaration and retreat to another inappropriate guy. She's very skittish, that one! I'm afraid she'll want to pick a fight somehow. :(
It's so hard being a shipper sometimes. Four months? Argh!
@ DC -- Kate will forgive him for preventing her from hekping Montgomery, or dying with him. Castle was there in the group, which she called "this family" with Esposito and Ryan, when she told them that they would be keeping Montgomery's mistakes within "this family". And at the graveside, when she came to her line about being lucky if you can find someone to stand by you in your battle, she looked at Castle, and met his eyes, for a long pause. She has forgiven him.
... Holy crap on a cracker.
That was, by far, the best episode of the series. The performances were spot on and I didn't even see the Montgomery-bad-guy twist. My god. I'm so glad that I know they can't kill Beckett off; otherwise, I might have lost my mind completely.
Nathan Fillion really pulled through with the dramatic scenes, and his line at the end. 'I love you, Kate... Kate, I love you.' It quite nearly broke my heart.
I have a theory that the mastermind behind all of this is the mayor. Maybe he's not the man that Castle thinks he is.
WOW ! What a excellent dramatic ending. What I love about this show, is the balance between comedy and drama episode. When they do drama, they do it well! We all know that Kate won't die, but I can't wait for next season.
Stana was fantastic tonight...
One more thing - LOVED Max Martini. Have a hard time hating him in this show cuz' I was a big fan of The Unit. And let me tell you, in The Unit, no one would have gotten the drop on him. Hopefully he's really dead though on this show, cuz' I don't want to see him come back around and try to get Kate!
