That kind of thinking has allowed Marlowe to drag the love relationship out since Season 4. You can tell the story your way, but it has to be something that people will watch. He has kept the audience this long by promising to never break them up, but the problem with that promise is that without them working together solving cases, there would be no show at all. So, that accomplishment means nothing. The 6x23 finale was crap and the "new" mythology is just an obvious way to avoid as long as possible writing them as a married couple solving cases. It has nothing to do with the fans not wanting to see new stories or take new roads.

Delay;Stall;Delay. After reading all the confusing and different screener reports from those watching the same thing, Marlowe and Amann working together as co-show runners looks kind of scary right now as S7 moves forward. Marlowe put that “unsettled” word out there to get the angst started with the audience which he knows stirs up and frustrates the fans. It presents as a deliberate attempt to sabotage the season for other projects. What kind of EP writes scripts that he knows will lose audience? The viewers being exposed to more of Beckett doubting Castle is just pathetic. Anything from the Castle past that would put Kate or his family at risk should have already been discussed before the wedding day. That is just common decency. If there is an issue with your past, take steps to keep your family safe. Any secrets still held between them now is just unrealistic at this point in the relationship. Maybe what needs to happen is that the viewer numbers for 7x1 and 7x2 drop to rerun level numbers (4-5 million) in order to force changes by the network. Casual viewers are not going to hang around very long waiting for a wedding while Marlowe gets his mythology story on track.

A lot of discussion on the boards about Kate meeting someone (Eddie) from her past in the finale. Putting info like that out this early for the finale seems very odd. A scenario like that could backfire on the show runner. If enough viewers get wind of it and they think the finale will go sideways, they might just write off the rest of the season and skip the finale if it looks like no wedding will happen. Many viewers have never recovered from Watershed. It is hard to imagine Marlowe would go there to risk losing audience for the rest of the series.The early spoiler presents as so unfair to the writers which just makes the information put out there seem very misleading. Beckett does have a motorcycle bad boy in her past, but I was always a bit dubious about it. Bad boys, motorcycles, fashion model, Stanford, science fiction nerd, future Supreme Court justice etc. It's gotten to be a bit too much and I'm not sure I feel it all meshes together into a character. To bring someone up from Beckett’s past out of the blue to just create angst for a milestone episode just makes no sense with Terri Miller co-writing the episode. What if this guy is case related? The spoiler says he has a past with Beckett. It does not say personal. It also says he is infamous for his lying, cheating, and scheming. Whatever problem he brings to the episode, it certainly won't be pure in nature. Perhaps whatever he says or does should not be trusted. And perhaps Caskett is smart enough and strong enough together that whatever this guy attempts, they will take a stand reinforcing their commitment to each other. I sure don’t want to experience another Watershed.
