Castle season finale: Are you satisfied?

Warning: Major spoilers!

So, how about that Castle finale? After some very, very frustrating episodes this season, we finally got some resolution. But, the question is, are you satisfied with how it ended?

The first “oooh!” moment of the episode came when Castle and Beckett were walking to their crime scene. Castle mentioned his plans to watch movies alone after Alexis’ graduation and somewhat timidly asked if she would like to join him. Instead of turning him down, she said she would love to, leading Castle to look quite pleased.

But, the episode was not without its drama. It turns out the victim had broken into Captain Montgomery’s house to steal his old files. The team quickly assumed it had to do with Beckett’s mom’s murder and Beckett’s shooting — and they weren’t wrong. Beckett insisted they keep their investigation a secret from Captain Gates, which Esposito was very willing to do but Ryan didn’t agree with. The mystery man who called Castle earlier in the season about keeping Beckett away from the case called him again with the same warning. Realizing there was no stopping Beckett, Castle went to her apartment to plead his case.

Castle Episode 2: “Heroes & Villains”

Good news for Caskett fans: They seem to be back to their usual selves! For now, at least.

If you watched the Castle Comic Con panel in July, you already knew episode two was going to be all about superheroes. The team was in search of a vigilante named Lone Vengeance who literally sliced man in half in an alley. The first Lone Vengeance they found was harmless. The second one was a reporter, Paul Whittaker, who admitted to the murder, but Castle and Beckett figured out quickly that he was trying to cover for someone. That someone was Officer Hastings, who had a pretty sweet samurai sword collection but also ended up not being the killer. It turns out Paul was covering for her because he’s in love with her.

Comic-Con: Castle [UPDATED]

As you’ve probably noticed by now, I was very into Comic-Con this year. And while I was beyond excited for multiple panels, the Castle panel was my number one. I’ve been patiently waiting all weekend for someone to upload videos from the panel to YouTube, but so far it hasn’t happened. Someone who was at the panel was streaming it live from their cellphone, so I watched that video, but the quality was not ideal. I guess beggars can’t be choosers though, right?

Based on the TwitCasted video, along with various articles online, I’ve learned some interesting tidbits about what’s coming up on season four.

  • There’s going to be a Ghostbusters-themed Halloween episode
  • The second episode of the season will be super hero-themed
  • Detective Ryan and his fiancee, Jenny, will be getting married this season! This means a bachelor party and a fight over who will be the best man
  • Nathan Fillion said he’s campaigning for juicy roles for Firefly cast members to play
  • We may get to meet Castle’s father!

Castle Finale: Why Is September So Far Away?

WARNING: This post will have MAJOR spoilers. If you haven’t seen the season finale of Castle and plan to watch it, you’ve been warned.

From 10-11pm last night, I was sitting on the edge of my bed closest to my TV with my hands over my mouth. No, I wasn’t watching Hawaii Five-0, though I was told I will have a similar reaction when I watch that finale.

I only started watching Castle a few weeks ago and was instantly hooked. Thanks to Netflix and Hulu Plus, I caught up just in time for the season three finale. I don’t understand how I’m the only person I know who watches this show – it’s AMAZING! But I digress…

I’ve been invested in the Caskett (Castle + Beckett) will they/won’t they relationship since day one as well as the mystery of who killed Beckett’s mom. Both of these story lines have made huge progress this season, leading to this “holy cow” finale! Let’s go over the major moments.

First, Castle goes to Beckett’s apartment to try to stop her from continuing her investigation into her mother’s killer. He says to her, “Walk away. They’re going to kill you, Kate, and if you don’t care about that, at least think about how that’s going to affect the people that love you.” (You know Castle means business when he uses her first name!) This results in a huge fight and touches on the fact that they kissed but never discussed it and nearly froze to death in each others’ arms and never discussed that either. It ends with Beckett telling him they’re over and kicking him out. Heartbreak #1.

Meanwhile, Ryan and Esposito get a lead on who the third dirty cop involved in Beckett’s mom’s murder is. It doesn’t take them long to realize it’s their own Captain! I have to say, I DID NOT see that coming! Lockwood (the shooter who escaped from prison) tells Captain Montgomery to bring Beckett to an airport hanger so he can kill her. He says Montgomery can either save Beckett or his family, but not both. So as you can imagine, he’s a bit torn.

There was a collective audience heartbreak when we hear Montgomery call Beckett to go to the hanger, but it turns out he does it to bait Lockwood. Montgomery also brings Castle to take Beckett away and make sure she doesn’t get killed when Lockwood arrives. She pleads with Montgomery not to get himself killed and even goes so far as to forgive him for his involvement in what ultimately got her mom killed. Castle literally carries her away kicking, screaming and crying. Heartbreak #2 happened while watching Castle cover her mouth and try to console her while they knew Montgomery was about to die. The only silver lining of Montgomery’s death is that Lockwood was also killed.

The foursome (Castle, Beckett, Ryan and Esposito) all agree to keep Montgomery’s involvement a secret and let him be remembered as a hero. At the funeral, Beckett gives a eulogy that indirectly addresses her own relationship with Castle, thus indicating a make-up of sorts. But then, just when I assume the drama is over, Beckett gets shot! Castle tried to tackle her to the ground but was a second too late. He stands over her with her blood on his hands begging her, “Stay with me!” And then, the moment fans have waited three seasons for, he tells her he loves her. Just before she passes out, it looks as though there’s a faint smile on her face.

Now, the cliffhanger is not the fact that Beckett was shot. Realistically they are not killing of their second lead character, so I’m not worried about that. What I am worried about is whether the declaration of love finally means Caskett will get together! Sadly, I have to wait until September to find out. Heartbreak #3.
