Buddy ,
we have seen the Captain's job in Castle is much more than in real life, We saw this in Law and Murder. Montgomery was seen as a potential Commissioner. We also saw in Food to die for the Precinct had a lieutenant ( and therefore a sergeant). I would add this was also in the case in another show such as Forever. A detective would not be allowed to sit for a Captain's exam certainly not one with less than 2 years experience. She has only been a mere detective, Not a Sergeant and not a lieutenant, She hasn't had any leadership experience at all. She only knows homicide. Can you imagine what the Sergeant and Lieutenant feel at Beckett been appointed Captain. They do not have the baggage of that Beckett has and her poor judgement in the undercover fiasco would be legend at the 12th. I guess in comes down to believing continuity is an important thing in writing a series and being able to think. If you do think either are important then anyone would accept Beckett as a Captain.

I share your concern.
At least season 6 had some great episodes but season 7 had none.
We had Castle gawking at strippers and Beckett flirting with aging actors and people thinking that was funny.When Castle was suspended from the Precinct I thought it would be a great way to bring back 3XK. He was the reason behind it and they all fight the obvious absurd decision but they had Castle become a PI where he had no idea of what he would do or how much he would make.
The in the finale we had Beckett trying to pick whether to be Captain or Politician. Two obvious absurd propositions given her and Castle's pasts. I suspect this season will show the show has jumped the shark. It is hard to invest in a relationship when they are both portrayed as a pair of complete bimbos. even delusional ones.

I have two children ans was lucky enough to be a Mr Mum as one stage.
If Beckett has a child and then goes straight back to the Precinct then she and Castle have no idea about having children. On my very conservative estimates he has a net wealth of $20m and a yearly income of $3m assuming two books a year.
if they have children she gives up work and stays at home until school age and then looks at new career options.
