I hope I'm wrong, but...
when the writers resort to doing "period pieces" in a contemporary show, it's often a tacit admission that they are out of ideas for doing the show in it's regular setting.
And when writers feel stale and try to freshen up the show, that's how bad decisions like having Fonzi go waterskiing and trying to jump a shark happen.
With this development, plus Fillion gaining so much weight, they're in danger of needing to rename of the show from "Castle" to "Cannon
" [is this reference too old for anyone to get the joke?] and with Katic seeming to be bored with this season, I' afraid we're seeing the show start to unravel.
