incorrect. It is a great husband who talks over things with their wives and then decides on a course of action.
This marriage would end in separation because in the real world issues do not simply die away you have to work through them. Not here however.
Until they share with each other it is impossible to assert they love each other. There is a HUGE difference between being in love and loving someone.

I am terribly sad.
the writers, the reviewer and clearly some fans have absolutely no idea of what a relationship is about.
Here again we have both Castle and Beckett unable to talk about basic issues. Castle has been working with her for over 6 years and living with her for over 3 years yey has has no idea about his wife. why is he making immature bets when he is now approaching 50. He isn't twenty! Isn't there anyone out there who is married and simply gets embarrassed by what is portrayed as a married couple. This series now is simply a fairy tale and should be treated as such.
Since I am in a grouchy mood a couple more snafus.
Alexis must be one dumb gal is she is studying such basic concepts. In OZ we do that in first year. Can we simply admit Beckett is no intellectual giant and she could not have been a Judge let alone on the Supreme court.
A pity this writer never saw for better or worse because Beckett certainly wasn't ambitious there but oh dear Marlowe forgot about that again. Dancing in the shower was absurd. It clearly wasn't Caskett. A shower is far too smal to dance in. If you are going to do anything you have sex in there. If you are going to dance you dance in the room. you wouldn't dance to that song either. you would dance to a slow song.
A Coltrane gal liking a Sinatra song? what next taylor swift? I am afraid to say this show now is gone. It was a great show. Was being the operative word.

The twists were pretty easy to spot. I was pretty sure of the murderer straight away. Married couples discuss this BEFORE they get married. Caskett NEVER discuss anything of substance. Beckett in politics is a joke. Meredith, Vaughn anf Stack played around with her head.She would be road kill.
She would get to Sergeant ( the 12th does have a Lieutenant after all) she would be lucky to get an interview. She was suspended from the NYPD and then sacked from a job in DC in less than a year. She made a deliberate decision to leave the NYPD. This all calls her judgement into question. He undercover disaster does as well. no other candidate would have to carry all that baggage. Easy Ryan and only Ryan. Ryan being allowed to investigate. It wouldn't happen in any police force in the developed world. Typical of writers knowing nothing about the subject they are writing about. no scene in particular. Ryan's crazy theory wasn't crazy. He had evidence to back it up.

Captains would presumably be selected by a committee consisting of the Commissioner and some others not by the Mayor. Remember Montgomery said when the commissioner is happy he was happy.

Yes, getting promoted seems at odds. They have the fantastic advantage of having both parents at home yet this has NEVER been addressed.

An episode that could have been a good one. A good case but Ryan allowed on it. Wouldn't happen in the NSW police force. NYPD have lower standards.
I liked how the suspicion changed but new each time that person wasn't the killer. An episode where Ryan is front and centre is always enjoyable and this on was except:
* Beckett is a mere Detective. you have to become a sergeant and then lieutenant. She has been suspended for a somewhat lengthy period for going rogue. She has been sacked from whatever organisation she worked for in DC. Even the writers got confused on that one. She resigned from the NYPD.
She has buckleys chance of being promoted.
As for politics. She has had her head successfully played with by Meredith, Vaughn and Stack. She would be political road-kill.
Political operatives would know that. She is an intensely prviate person. They would know that too.
A pity the writers do not. Can not one writer do some basic research? Castle with a purple shirt and green jacket. Simply awful. Cannot Beckett teach him some Clothes sense at all?
Espo will always be a problem.

No it was ridiculous,
She is married to her favourite author. They are partners in crime and in life.
someone hit her on the head. Every women would ream even dream of what she has. Let us get real. Beckett cannot NEVER be Captain.
She got suspended for going rogue, She got sacked, she left the NYPD.It is a Miller fantasy that was typically never thought through.
Here is a thought. Be a stay at home Mum. Given Castle's millions these (hopefully) children could have both parents at home. Give all of your life to your children because you can. It is a luxury no parent has but she does. not my line. I prefer non-fiction As usual Creasey had no idea of previous episodes. He had non idea that Lanie HATED her mother previously and in this he didn't know Beckett had been SACKED for whoever she worked for. It was described as an agency/Taskforce and FBI. The Reviewers had no idea either.
no wonder Marlowe gets away with his drivel. The Last scene and Castle making that very cheesy but memorable line. Only Castle can say something like that and make it mean sooo much.

This is depressing. Christine has a memory as bad as Creasey. Beckett didn't leave the Agency/Taskforce/FBI ( Amazing it had three names, what great writing) She was FIRED.
If you do not know that get another job. It was only last season for pete's sake! We got a variation of why Watershed was so terrible. One of it many faults was we still do not know how, where and when Beckett changed from an idealistic homicide detective to an ambitious career driven woman with little time for Castle. She works for idealistic reasons not material. Know your character please. Becket is now approaching 40 yet she acts like an immature teenager.
She is at the top of her mountain. Why would she change? She is solving crimes with Castle, putting murders behind bars and honouring the victims. She CANNOT do that if she gets a absurdly thought promotion. Not to mention what it would mean for her relationship with Castle. She doesn't need the money and apparently she wants children.
Are we to believe Beckett is this stupid?
Beckett could not be promoted. *She got suspended for going rogue.
*She got sacked in the DC job
*She left the NYPD
She would have buckley's of gaining a Sergeant's position against the other leading detectives. Remember she is at the bottom of the totem pole.
She has to serve a long successful time there to get to lieutenant and again there until she becomes Captain.
( Also given Gates and Beckett became detectives at a similar time in their careers then the earliest we could expect Beckett to be Captain is in some 20-25 years time!) This was typical Creasey lazy writing. No research at all and no understanding of previous episodes.
Should have been sacked when he didn't know Beckett went to the Prom! And again we get no substance in talk with Caskett only superficiality. Tell Beckett to only have the Knockdown hairstyle. this one was atrocious. I hope this is the final season

Castle Round Table: Mars is Murder

a rather juvenile reply.
I am not a football manager but can criticise a team selection or their tactics. As it is I made detailed criticisms which you obviously cannot refute.
There were huge plotholes here as usual with a Marlowe episode. WE had not so long ago the Creaseys and most commenters not understanding that Lanie hated her Mother in Setup.
That my friend is very bad writing.
Perhaps you should try and understand what good and bad writing is before writing yourself!
