Personally I don’t get why so many people are anti kids with Caskett but to each their own. I want them to have kids – weather it be now or whenever. This could quite possible be the last season since the ratings are down and apparently there’s no movement in the contract negotiations with Fillion and Katic and ABC hasn’t officially renewed the show. So it’s quite possible if the show ends this season that will be the ending – them starting a family. (And I’m sorry, what the ABC executive said at the TCAs about wanting “Castle” to continue for a long time doesn’t count. You cannot take anything a TV executive says at the TCAs as whole truth. That whole event is about spin and PR.) I’m not a big fan of “Bones” but using it as an example for a moment, they’ve incorporated a baby (actually three babies if you include the supporting characters) and it seems to have worked out just fine. This whole kids or no kids “controversy” reminds me of the people/fans who didn’t want them to consummate the relationship. It was going to ruin the show! No one was going to watch anymore! It was the “moonlighting curse” all over again and, NO. It was not. Not only did it open up new story ideas but the ratings went up. Then no one wanted them to marry. Again, the show has done fine creatively and while the ratings are down, ratings are down across the board for all shows and networks (the “Empires” of the world are the exception, not the rule) because the TV landscape and viewer habits have changed. Then, after they were married, people said, “now what?” “How do you make a married couple interesting?” Well, they have! So how can so many of you be so sure a baby or babies would be such a bad thing or something that wouldn’t work going forward? You don’t. So, sorry for the long post but I don't think them starting a family would be the end all of the show if it’s done right creatively. So far every obstacle convention has thrown at them – consummating the relationship, marriage, post-marriage relationship – hasn’t stopped the fun from being funny or the drama from being dramatic. I'm "Team 'Baskett'"! #CastleBabies Btw, if you do the math based on what cannon information we’ve gotten from the show, ABC, Terri Miller, Marlowe, and things like “Castle” wiki, etc., there is a ten year age difference between Castle and Beckett. Castle was born on 04/01/69 (yes, April’s Fools Day) and Beckett was born on 11/17 of either 1979 or 1980 (both years are mentioned by different sources). Either way it’s basically a ten year age gap that currently makes Rick 45 and Kate 34/35. Certainly not “spring chickens” but certainly still young enough for Kate to have a baby, or babies, and young enough for Rick to start a second family. I've seen much older people - both the man and the woman - do it and be just fine.

I have to say for me one of if not the most “memorable” scene in her apartment would have to be the deleted scene of Castle meeting her dad for the first time. That scene got reworked and put into a different episode but imo it wasn’t as good as the original one Nathan and Scott Paulin (Kate’s dad) film. TPTB really made a mistake in deleting that scene. I know they said it was a time issue but there were other less poignant scenes in that episode that could have been deleted instead. I even re-edited the episode myself and put it back. LOL
Wow. You know, why don't you stop watching the show. Obviously it's not enjoyable for you any more (if it ever was). I have nothing against people posting their opinions negative or possative but it just seems like maybe you should cut your losses with this show and move on.
