The point is it could be used to devastating effect in an election campaign.

go to the 100th episode. It is very specific. sorry for being so late but I knew I had seen it but didn't know where.
guess who wrote that episode?

crossed the line as in suspension and being sacked.
Talked? They didn't talk. They haven't even contemplated where children come into the equation.
How could you make a decision on politics and not talk to someone who had been there done that like Bob Weldon. So another decision is going to made made by an individual not them by someone who has done no homework
It is highly ironic that Marlowe of all people paint Caskett as a complete set of bimbos. very hard to invest in a couple when they are so stupid.

yeah maybe.
Castle has witnessed him as the murderer and the very distinctive 'style' he has used.
This would eventually turn up. I do not regard it as a large snafu at all.
Political operatives who have not done their homework on prospective candidates was terrible as was Beckett denying she had ever crossed the line.Add that to no talk on their future together, it is Beckett's decision which cl;early showed they had not talked about children and it was Watershed all over again.

Look that is simply one of many errors we have seen mainly since season 5. The canon is now so error struck it makes little sense.
Your point on a young kid is valid but a murderer getting caught out by a young kid and not murdering him is a long stretch.

perhaps however dead people tell no tales and given Castle was born in 1969 he was more than 11 in 1983.
Fncy Marlowe and miller making such an obvious mistake.

not to mention a twice divorced man married to a divorced woman. plenty of fodder there.

good points. Of course the time bomb waiting to go off is Montgomery as the third cop which MUST come out in the Bracken trial. Beckett withholding evidence!!

If the show was serious she couldn't do either. A detective cannot sit for a captain's exam only al lieutenant can. A person who has been suspended for gong rogue and been sacked from a DC job would not be allowed to sit for any exam for promotion. Those two things would mean she would be roadkill in a campaign before anyone thinks of swiftboating or involved Castle's dubious past or his books.
She is a idealistic homicide detective not a career woman. Last time she thought like that she made the worst decision possible and again like now it wasn't HER decision it was THEIRS.
What is also interesting here is that it shows Caskett have not talked about children because both jobs would be incompatible with them
She doesn't need a career given Castle's fortune. She could be a stay at home mum with at the worst a part-time stay at home dad. Imagine how good that would be for the children!
This was woeful writing from go to finish on this topic. He was not much of a creepy killer if he let a witness go free. How old was Castle? This was an Alexis I almost didn't recognise. She would have has all the options there and then asked which one to take just like when she chose Universities. totally OOC. I would have likes Castle to talk about his life not his writing ( a pity his fear of not being able to write again is contradicted in two episodes of the show. one in Season one and one this season.)before meeting Beckett. how meeting her dispelled those fears and he has his long sought after relationship ( albeit one that doesn't exist in the real world.) I would have liked Beckett to finally tell Castle in front of his colleagues how important his books were to her following his mother's death. Why has not she confessed this long ago? A lot actually but Castle being allowed to escape by the killer. Absurd. He must have been confused about his age like the writers. Castle not telling his love of his life why he writes until now. We can only assume she still wouldn't know if this case didn't turn up. Castle and Beckett inability to talk through her 'choices and Castle leaving the choice with her and not them making this Watershed again. No couple acts like this. Season 8 needs a complete overall after this disastrous season. Any writer who contradicts a previous episode or cannot do basic research should be fired. forget about making Castle child like. No-one can do it. He becomes childish and then an embarrassment. lets us have Castle and Beckett talk the big issues through like grown ups and then agree on options. how about discussing children first. how about we learn that previously Martha, Castle and Jim have apologised to their children for their terrible parenting.This would make it easy to understand their current parenting relationships. without an apology the current relationships make no sense at all.

The best thing of this finale it wasn't as bad as the absolutely dreadful ones of Watershed and For better or worse. A murderer lets a kid go ( how can Castle be 11 in 1983 when he is born in 1969?) after he witnesses a murder? Very far fetched. The murderer was always easy to spell but it was decent. Best part of the episode by a mile. Beckett in politics is a joke. She has had her head played with by Meredith, Stack and Vaughn. Put in her suspension and job sacking and she is political roadkill. Worst political operatives I have seen. Have they never heard of swift boating? It would be very east to do that on her career and Castle. First Detective to ever sit for a Captain's exam. Usually reserved for lieutenants! Typical lazy writing from Marlowe. Only need a mouse click to find that out.
Her judgement would never allow her to be Captain for the above reasons. Swings was very disappointing. It is HER decision? Not it isn't. It is THEIR decision. This merely repeats the fiasco of Watershed where Beckett made the wrong call on no homework at all ans where Castle made his first doormat appearance.
They are supposed to be a married couple. Extremely disappointed in the speech. I expected Castle to go all soppy and tell the world Beckett stopped him from going down an emotional abyss. Saying he would never write again contradicts the very first episode and also In plane sight ( remember why Alexis wasn't gong to hear him talk). A strange statement to make presumably to mainly an audience of authors who know it is not true.
I was hoping he would tell the world of what he was feeling pre--Beckett of never having a proper long term relationship but no. I was also hoping that Beckett would eventually tell him of how his books saved her but no. Hopefully the two new co-producers can make a decent recovery of this once great series.
This has been a woeful season, easily the worst ever. At least season 6 had quite a few episodes that could be amongst the best ever but not so this season. I also hope we get Castle and Beckett acting their ages instead of immature people in the early twenties. Some open discussion of major issues like a normal couple would be nice as well.
