Castle Season 4 Spoilers: Who's the Boss?

by at . Comments

One death. One shooting. One admission of love.

The Castle season finale - reviewed HERE - left fans confused, shocked and excited for season four. How might the events from last night affect developments ahead? Creator Andrew Marlowe offered a few hints in an interview with TV Guide...

Stunned Beckett

Will we meet a new boss? That's one of the opportunities we're looking to take. Everybody's getting along really well in the precinct, and we think there can be a little more conflict. We think it's interesting to grow Beckett and Castle by having somebody who may not look as favorably on Beckett as the Captain did or may not look as favorably on the Castle-Beckett relationship. That's all stuff we're plotting out for next year as we speak.

About that mystery man connected to Johanna Beckett's murder... Next season, with Castle knowing somebody is out there, [Beckett] becomes his responsibility. It changes the nature of their relationship and makes it significantly more interesting, especially given what happens the last 10 seconds of the show.

What else can be previewed about season four? There's going to be a real push and pull between Beckett and Castle. Beckett's going to want to look into [this new mystery man] and Castle's going to have very specific reasons why he doesn't want her to. He'll end up with a little more information than she has, and he can't be honest with her about it. It's going to cause a complexity in their relationship that's going to be interesting.

Love the show. Don't think Beckett and Castle will marry. And I think his absent secret dad is . . The Mayor! !

They are soooo gonna milk the Castle/ Beckett relationship right to the end. On again, off again, will they, won't they?? Yeesh. Too many plot holes like a cop not wearing vest. I love Castle it's my fav series and am looking forward to seeing how all this evolves.

Montgomery wanted himself dead in the shootout(to explain the lack of bulltet proof vest).

So here's what I think, The retired cop with the bar is the one behind the murder of Johanna Becket. I think that Kate`s dad was friends with the retired cop and is being blackmailed somehow to keep the killing secret. Maybe Kate`s dad witnessed his friend committing the murder and they told him to keep his mouth shut or his daughter(kate) would be next. I think Castle will figure it out about Kate`s dad and keep it from her to protect her. I don`t think Josh will be around for long, he`ll save her life - he is a cardiac surgeon and Kate was shot in the heart, but he`ll see what is between Kate and Castle, even if they aren`t ready to admit their feelings.

I'm guessing next on the list of people involved is going to be the mayor.... Something Montgomery says about the person having "too much power now" and the fact that Castle is his friend makes me think that would make a good next puzzle piece.

I will bet a lot of money that Castles Dad will be involved with the Becketts mother case this is because he has not been mentioned or shown before and i have this weird feeling that he is the guy that ordered the killing. Anyway it will make it very very interesting. That was just a thought :)

it was really sad to see the finale, how can it be that a police officer goes without bullet proofs and so, therewere few loopholes in the last episode but they can filled in the next season, wishing that becky is alive and the relationship goes more romantic and spicy. and they both marry.
