Castle Season 6: Our Wish List

at . Comments

September 23rd? September 30th? The date is anyone's guess, as fans wait for ABC to announce the Castle Season 6 premiere. Of course the big question is how will Kate answer Castle's surprise proposal of marriage.

But we're going to side step the fray over whether Kate Beckett should say yes, no or not yet. We've got other things on our mind.

As Castle fans suffer through the long, hot summer without a new episode, we've decided to bide our time by composing a list of all the other important milestones for which we've been longing.

So read on TV Fanatics. Check out our wish list and let us know which of these story lines you'd like to see Castle tackle this fall.

Caskett at Home

Our Castle Season 6 Wish List:

Why Kate's a Fan? - Kate confesses to Castle how his books helped her deal with her mother's death. In our opinion, telling him is long overdue.

Third Time's a Charm? - Castle shares with Kate why his two marriages failed, including the detail about Meredith cheating on him.

I love you. - Either of them saying it , without being prompted by a major argument or life threatening moment.

A Night Out - Kate accompanies Castle to a public, formal event. Movie premiere? Book launch? Johanna Beckett Scholarship Fundraiser? You choose.

Kate's Confession -That she was about to accept Castle's invitation to the Hamptons in season 2. He should know how close they came, long before he thought he had a chance.

Why He Writes About Death - Castle teased us (and Beckett) with a story back in "Vampire Weekend" in season 2. Now give us the real version.

Meeting Mom - Kate takes Castle to her mother's grave site.

A Walk on the Beach - Another trip to the Hamptons, this time with more romance and less murder.

Your turn. Which of the above would you most like to see for Castle and Beckett in season 6?

But we're not done yet! We don't want to leave anyone out, so here's our wish list for everyone other than Castle and Beckett:

Dr. Parish Gets Her Day - A Lanie-centric episode where we learn her back story.

Special Delivery - A funny/poignant delivery scene for Ryan and Jenny's baby.

How Far They've Come - They'll never love one another (and we wouldn't want them to) but how about Castle and Capt. Gates. being forced to work together.

In the Beginning… -  Beckett & Esposito are close. Show us how they got there.

Bonding time - Alexis & Kate must have some sort of relationship. We'd love to see evidence of that.

Little Castle - No not that. At least not yet. But we'd love to hear Martha tell Kate about Castle's childhood.

Which gets your vote for an upcoming story?

OK, TV Fanatics. Cast your votes above and then tell us your thoughts and anything you think we missed in the comments below.

-Beckett peeling even more of Castle's onion, maybe a talk about Castle's dad?
-Beckett meeting Castle's dad.
-Amusement park murder. Castle winning Beckett the biggest stuffed animal there and them challenging each other and being romantic.
-The return of 3XK
-More of Caskett spending time together in general, movie night at home, dinner out after work, concert, and it being shown to us. (#3)


#2 Yikes, missed the "Little Castle", sorry for repeat in comments, anyway,
-More Caskett teasing/joking/pranks outside of work. I just want to see these two die with laughter at home or wherever they are outside of work.
-Caskett and Alexis laser tag/poker/paint ball/water balloon showdown
-Kenny/Esplanie/ Caskett triple date :D. That'll be interesting.
-Caskett/Esplanie/ Kenny or Caskett Ryspo 3-legged race showdown, challenging and teasing comments included.


I agree with all of these. And I'd like to add:
-Beckett/ Martha moments, conversations or them spending time together, maybe on a spa date or Martha showing Beckett pictures of Castle when he was young and telling her stories about his childhood.
- A similar scene with Castle showing Beckett pictures of Alexis would be great too.


I tried to rank these in order of importance but I can't do it. I want to see them all! I want to hear Rick talk seriously about his failed marriages. I want Kate to confess what happened at the end of season 2. If she took him to her mother's grave I'm sure I'd be in tears. Plus we definitely need more romance this season. A walk on the beach seems a good place to start.


None of these are mutually exclusive. I want it all, baby!
Note it's hard to do the 'childhood stories' episode because if you're not careful it breaks the 'show, don't tell' rule of TV. One way around it would be if Kate asked Martha to help her shop for a wedding dress. They could talk, Kate could try on dresses, and then they find a dead body in one of the dressing rooms. Everyone wins! :-D


Wow! I'd be over the moon if they gave us all of these this season. Even half of these. I've always wanted Castle to know she broke up with Demming and almost went with him. Not so much because I want him to feel bad for going off with Gina (well, maybe a little) but because he always seemed to think that Beckett didn't have feelings for him and it would be nice for him to find out he was wrong. And Beckett really needs to know that Meredith cheated on him and then why he married Gina and why they divorced. These are important conversations that they need to have if they're considering getting married and they're scenes that fans want to watch.


All of it please! Let's go deep and skip some of the subtext.


I would die to see these happen on Castle this season! Rick finally telling Kate how Meredith cheated on him. Kate finally admitting to him how she broke up with Demming so she could go to the Hamptons with him. Kate sharing how his books helped her deal with her mother's murder. I've been waiting for these for things to happen for what feels like forever and ever season that goes by I'm disappointed. Come on Castle writers. Give us what we want!


I agree with Kelly! After over a hundred episodes, there's so much that we'd like to see and know about all of the characters. I want it all!


Honestly, there isn't one of these I wouldn't love to see happen. I think they all make my list but especially the ones for Castle and Beckett. They've teased so many of these things and never followed up on them. It's about time the fans got some payoff on these stories. I've got my fingers crossed the writers have some of these planned already or take a look at this list and become inspired. :)

Castle Quotes

Sometimes the hardest things in life are the things most worth doing.


Castle: The fact that you even think that breaks my heart. I would walk into a tornado for you, Kate.
Beckett: And I would die if I lost you.
