If it existed - yes. The point being that there is no way a political vetting of a candidate misses something as straightforward as a first marriage for 15 years, and to a guy with a criminal record to boot. No. Way. Just like the idea that an FBI background check for the Attorney General missed it, but Ryan and Esposito had no problem pulling up the whole thing and the guy's background makes no sense. This is why I hope the new showrunners have a short little scene where Beckett and Castle find out that the "first marriage" was faked and planted piece of information. Because it's so ridiculous for it to be anything else but.

I don't exactly follow what you're referring to in the second paragraph. Is it errors from S5 onward? If you're talking about the meeting Beckett had, I do think that Beckett's first marriage has to be a lie. That's the only way the storyline will ever make sense. From Beckett's point of view, she has always stayed on the side of justice and what was right - putting herself on the line to do so. As for it being Beckett's decision - she brought the issue to Rick and asked what he thought - he's the one who tells her the choice is hers. That scene was very different from Watershed. It also doesn't mean they haven't talked about children... there's a section on the swing scene in this that talks about how different it is from Watershed. http://gossipandgab.com/73219/...

I agree about the errors since season 5. However, I think they did their research on the serial killer thing. The murderer letting him go on the face of it seems odd, but the kid didn't see his face, so it's not like he could be identified. This guy was very specific it his killings. So killing the kid wasn't the same kind of thrill thing as what he did. The girl he did kill for this case - Emma - she had I.D.'d him. So he had to kill her - plus as a woman she fit his profile more than a kid. It's not like an assassin, or a general criminal who's willing to kill. The logic of serial killers tends to be warped and their killings are planned, not spontaneous. Check out this piece on serial killer profiles - letting the kid go isn't as unlikely as it sounds. http://www.adherents.com/misc/...
