Castle > Castle Round Table: "Always" > Comments Page 2
Wouldn't it be ironic if Castle and Beckett woke up the next morning in bed in the same position they were in "Cuffed"? Becketts hand on his chest and the other arm around the back of his neck. But no handcuffs,and no shock, just a smile on both of their faces. That would be a nice introduction to season 5! By the way, Pan Am was canceled,so Michael Mosley( who played the part of Ted the pilot) can come back and play the part of the Triple Killer again! Just love Castle!
Excellent season finale! Just enough tease to bring us back in the fall but still enough ends tied off to satisfy.I disagree with the Gates-lovers. She's a distraction and an irritant and *I* don't even work for her. Either mellow her out to a tolerable level or write her out.I concur with the previous poster to bring in someone else that wants Kate, et al, back. Espo & Ryan will be fine as soon as they have some time to think it thru--probably no longer than mid-first episode, new season. As for the long awaited coming together--hallelujah! Now, we can get on to something else. Here is where it gets tricky--the writers can REALLY make or break this show with how they handle "Caskett". They can either do a classy Nick & Nora Charles or they can go down the tubes with a "Moonlighting" scenario--which, regardless of reason, was still crappy.
Only one thing, now that Caskett are together, I want Esplaine too... or else find another woman for Javi... man he deserves love too...coz Javi is wonderful... After Castle and Beckett, he is ma fav character...:)
Season 4: Episode 23: Is a big winner for ABC! This season now moves us into the real meat of Castle and Beckett, relationship,and their partnership. If the kiss from the finale is any indication of what's ahead, it is going to be spicy "season 5," for sure, with just the right amount of humor and intrigue! Bravo Castle! Bravo!
While I agree with every wonderful thing said about Marlowe, the director, the actors and music, etc. consider--the show would be nothing without Nathan Fillion. He owns it everytime he's on screen. From mischievous little boy, to love-sick adolescent to heartbroken man, he has delivered for 4 seasons.
I actually like Gates, but it's clear that the writers can't figure out what to do with her. Penny plays a worn-out cliche ("the captain who's tired of explaining your crazy antics to the commish") but plays it very, very well. It seems new and fresh with her. If she appears more often, she'll be fine. Plus we'll see progression in her character.
Ryan did the right thing. In Headhunters, Castle does basically exactly what Ryan does, and we cheered for it. Esposito was in the middle of calling for backup when Maddox jumps him. He'd have been in trouble anyway. He's supposed to be mad at Ryan for having called 20 min earlier? As a writing decision, I love that the two are going to have some tension for a while-- we're so invested in their bromance that it'll be a fun ride getting them back together. Maybe Lanie will help them mend fences?
Best scene, by far, was Castle's emotional breakdown/showdown with Beckett. Fillion is a master. He makes Castle's seldom-seen serious side absolutely believable. And Stana-- if you've seen her in public, she's absolutely nothing like Beckett. Her performance as Beckett is always great, but that scene was superb. She does more with her eyes than most actors do in a whole scene.

Moonlighting died for lots of reasons that have nothing to do with David and Maddie hooking up. Writers strike, plus the actors hated one another, plus the show had already jumped the shark. The hookup happened because the show was desperate.
With Castle, the writers did a great dance, and now they're together. Bravo! I have no doubt they can make it work. The playful banter that makes the show so great doesn't require that they be together or apart. Now it gets lighter and more fun, more like seasons 2-3. If they'd waited, the banter would have been an empty promise (a "Ponzi plot" as Castle called it), and the show would have gone downhill.
One quibble: Beckett never actually said, "I love you." Just sayin'.
So, is there any buzz about the show garnering some Emmys this year? They're well deserved. Agreed, Nathan tore my heart out a couple of times and I'll never take that for granted, but Stana continues to really surprise me. She's underrated as an actress... when you compare her off-show bubbly and girlish demeanor to - everything Rick loves about Kate - wow. She can act all right. Her body language and voice change completely, not just her expression.
My one quibble is: Kate hanging by one hand for what seemed like an eternity. Yes, I know it felt like an eternity to *her*, but it was slightly too long to *ahem* suspend disbelief.
I like Gates! We just need to get to know her better. And I think if she sees Castle applying himself to earn a badge, she'll warm up to him. It's good to have a challenge and an antagonist in the authority figure. These cops bend rules, and much as I miss Montgomery, it's better not all warm-and-fuzzy. Additionally, since cat's leaving the bag re Mo
"could there be a possibilty, that the whole kissing scene was her imagination?"
Nope. Not a possibility. Andrew Marlowe has already said in interviews right after the finale aired that he wouldn't do that to fans. This was the real deal and I'm thrilled. Absolutely the best finale of the year. I've never wanted a summer to go by so fast!
of course beckett will go back to work and castle will be by her side (hope they give castle some kind of badge like jayne in the mentalist he deserves it)think season5 will start with them waking up maybe castle sees bruises on becketts body and asks her the whole story and goes on from there.
I considered this...(and I really hope I'm wrong...) but when Beckett goes to sit in the rain on the swingset, then the next scene she's going to his apt. could there be a possibilty, that the whole kissing scene was her imagination? ...or maybe I'm getting delusional since it's been so many years of Marlowe not letting them come together...lol..we shall see. Thank you Karkar for interpreting the gravestone, I wondered about that ;) I for one really hope they ARE finally together, and through the summer I will be praying that by some miracle the actors will raise their voices above the whisper they seem to resort to :( I miss alot of the dialogue!Project people! ...waiting for Sept.
I don't need the love making scene. But it would be nice to see them wake up in bed (after the last scene from this season) and the look on Martha's and Alexis' faces when Beckett walks out of the bedroom. I know they will have sly smiles and be very happy for Rick. I love this show.
Oops...forgot about the Ryan and Esposito question.
Yes, Ryan did the right thing. If he hadn't of told Gates, Beckett would be dead but it's going to take Javi a while to come to terms with that.
-The kiss! After four seasons it was definitely worth the wait. A little embarrassed to admit how many times I've watched that scene.
-Castle telling her "I'm right here." about broke my heart. So good!
-I'll say no but only because I want to see what happens after that kiss!
-It better pick up right where it left off. We've waited too long for anything less than everything.
most powerfull moment?
Maybe Kate despairing in the elevator, after having looked all cool and sure of herself after resigning.
Rare. It's not going to be over like Moonlighting was. There were many reasons that show failed that simply do not apply to Castle! If the writers keep up the give and take, it will be fine. I think about the old movies with Bogart and Bacall! With that kind of banter, playing off each other, it can continue to be great!
This show has been amazing right from the beginning! It's rare for a show to come together so perfectly with the perfect actors/actresses, fantastic writing, great editing. Even the music has been perfect. Every single character is so right on; I believe everyone of them. That said, this season, there has been a synergy about the show that takes it beyond anything I have ever seen on Tv. The finale was amazing! When Rick told Kate how he felt and there were tears in his eyes, OMG! Kate's anger at what she perceived as his betrayal! They both deserve emmys!
I don't much care for Gates, but she is a marvelous actress. Her face when Beckett resigned spoke volumes without her saying a word! And she was right to put them both on admin leave. She is growing on me. Ryan and Espo are also amazing. Espo's rage and Ryan's pain. Wow. And I just adore Alexas and Martha.
I have to send my heartfelt gratitude to Mr. Marlowe for letting/making the characters evolve! That is so
Love all the comments, a joy to read. So many differing thoughts leading to one conclusion..........we all enjoy Castle.
Here's an idea as to how Beckett could get back to the 12th. We know Espo is on leave, but Beckett resigned. How about the Mayor plays a part, saying or threatens to close the 12th Precinct down if Beckett isn't there anymore. That would then force Gates to make a move to get Beckett back to the Precinct.
Can't wait to see the reaction on her face when she eventually finds out that Beckett and Castle are together. Gates cannot demand that the two of them cool it, because for one thing Castle is a civvy and for another, he doesn't get paid.
Whoever mention Moonlighting and thought the same thing. I love that show and I love this one too. I came in after season 2 so I need to go back and watch those. LOVED this season's finale.
Im typing this again, lost it the first time. I gave my comments under "Final Review" But an interesting scene was Beckett at her mom's grave. Johannas marker said Vincit(conquers), Omnia(all or maybe always)' Veritas(truth). Translated (from my 2 years of Latin in high school)Truth Conquers All. Since this Finale was called "Always" could Marlowe wanted it to say Truth Always Conquers? Castle and Beckett also use the word always to each other alot as did Alexis in her commencement speech.
It's over, ala Moonlighting.
Fall premiere: A redux of the “Cuffed” scene…except it’s the morning after they've "debriefed" each other...and this time, they sleep in!
Favorite scene: Beckett’s arrival at Castle’s home, and the subsequent conversation. It’s the first time in the series where Kate actually uttered her actual feelings for Castle. EVER. Usually, it’s other characters enunciating what she herself couldn't. Go on YouTube and prove me wrong; bet you can’t. Most powerful scene: Kate saying “I’m sorry” to Rick (three times; I think that means something). As I said earlier, she was apologizing for three seasons’ worth of denying what she knows to be in her heart. Fear is a bi-otch, ain’t it? Ryan/Esposito: Of course Ryan did the right thing. After Espo cools down (it may take some time), he’ll realizes that Kevin was ultimately acting as his bro. Ending: Very satisfying…and not just for Season 4, but for the series to-date. On a 10-scale, it was a 9.8. Fall premiere: A redux of the “Cuffed” scene…except it’s the morning after they've "debriefed" eac
