While I don't want the short summer to be over, I do want the new season to start right away. biggrin.gif

The voice over kinda ruins the suspense (although it's obvious anyway) when they say next season Castle and Beckett will be solving more crimes.

My bet is that 3XK ran Castle off the road. After all, Rick did pump 2 or 3 slugs into him when he allegedly died.

The way I'd plot it, after the wedding as they are getting ready to leave on their honeymoon, Castle runs out to get something, a last minute surprise for Beckett, and is abducted then. I think it would up the angst, looking for or loosing the new husband right after the happily ever after moment.

Heh, yah.

OMG! Is Castle really dead? Would they kill off the title character? Oh no! What's going to happen!

"Castle and Beckett return this fall for more adventures on ABC."

Oh....



Not that any logical person would actually think Castle was in the car. And I can't possibly believe Beckett thinks that. But what will be interesting to see is WHO took him and how. Per how this show goes, it won't be a drawn out issue. See y'all again in late September!

Well, Beckett (the character) doesn't realize she is on a TV show, and they can't kill the title character. (Hopefully Stana does.)

The point of this show has never been that something portrayed on the show is actually what it seems. Castle's case is no different from all the times a case looked like time travelers, vampires, ghosts or bigfoot were committing the crimes. Obviously, what we've seen so far isn't the case. The key to every event on Castle is how they Scooby-Doo it into revealing what thing grounded in reality really happened.

That's why you tune in in the fall: to find out what really happened to Castle, not to find out if he's dead or not.

I agree. This is what makes this show fun to watch.

Boy, did my wife not like the season cliffhanger.

You know, she might be right. We all know they can't kill off Castle unless it was the end of series episode. End of season, who are they kidding.?

With all the difficulty they had getting Kate the divorce, it would have been nice if they would have had the wedding.

Nobody has that much bad luck.

The cliffhanger would of been ok if 10 seconds later the announcement didn't tell the viewer about Castle & Becket tracking down criminals (or similar) next season. mad.gif
Really runs the effect with the final shot of Becket in tears, then being told they both will be back (even though we all know he will be).

Abundant OTA television is what makes this country different from all others. Lets keep it this way. If you like Wi-Fi so much, OTA fits right in. After all, it is wireless.

Maybe Castle is taken by some sort of spy operation. He was out promoting his new Storm novel and a graphic Storm novel. With that great imagination of his he may have hit on a real operation and they want to know how.
I was surprised at the statement that they will be back next year, guess they may not think that the programs audience may not be able to figure it out. No Castle no show.cool.gif

More than likely it has to be something to do with Castle's Dad. Just my guess.

I realize that there is a TV rule that you must end every season/midseason with a cliffhanger, but I would have just preferred them to end the season (or even the show alltogether) with the two of them getting married and heading off happily on their honeymoon.

Don't say that, they are some of if not the best actors on TV. Stana Katic gets more out of a few eye movements and looks then most get out of 10 page of dialog. Nathan Fillion is just as good, the rest are also very good at that.

Of the buddy shows, I count 4 at this time, its the best. On Bones the show stayed good after the marriage, NCIS sort of hit a speed bum when there buddies split, NCIS,LA has one that does dance around it, and after 6 years Jane finally kisses Lisbon to take that show in a new direction.

& for the cliffhangers, when I was a kid one of they funnies hit records was called Along Came Jones, and we can't forges the Mounty named Dudly Do-Right on Saturday mornings.

If it works don't fixit

Am I the only one that noticed the smirk that Bracken had on his face while being driven away in the squad car? I think that Bracken or his cabal had something to do with the ending. As highly rated as this show has become, the writers probably plan on continuing this story arc. It, and Castle's father have both been quality story threads to keep longtime viewers entertained. As someone who has watched from the first episode I think the writers have always been able to tell a tale full of intrigue and twists. Just a theory though. I personally think that this is one of the best shows around and am looking forward to the next season.

Maybe. Not sure I've ever seen Jack Coleman WITHOUT a smirk.

I get the feeling that the sub-plot will not show up every week.

"What do you say Beckett. Wanna have a baby?" - Castle to Det. Beckett
"How Long have I been gone?" Alexis after arriving home and seeing Castle and Beckett w/ the baby - Castle - 11/25/13

I was annoyed when early on the FBI (and one of the sidekicks) did not even consider the idea that he may not have willingly dropped the money. Once Beckett turned on him I really got annoyed. Enjoying any TV show challenges the level of incredulity we're willing to endure. I'm usually pretty forgiving. Last night my tolerance was greatly exceeded.

Edit - I can usually pick out the bad guy by using the "most recognizable guest star technique". It worked again Monday night with the guy in the trailer.

I agree 100%. It didn't occur to any of them that he may have been coerced to put the money there on camera?

I'm not buying the amnesia angle either. Far too contrived.

Agreed, especially the way he specifically looked at the camera as if he wanted to be seen.

I'll buy the "amnesia" thing in the sense there are drugs than can cause you to lose long stretches of time in your memories.

However, when he didn't respond right away when everyone came into the room, I was really, really hoping he wouldn't wake up and say "who are you people"...

That would have ticked me off.
