Fantastic season finale from Castle. The case was stellar and unpredictable, as were Castle and Beckett. And Castle and Beckett were certainly the main focus of the episode. That offer Kate got last week to interview for a position on the AG’s investigative task force? Well she took them up on it. And got an official offer for the job. The only problem? She hadn’t told Castle anything about it.
They spent the episode fighting, and each was prompted to really consider how they feel about their relationship. We know how Castle feels – that proposal! – but we’re left with one massive cliffhanger: will Kate pick the ring or the job? We’re modern women here at Pond Hopping Girls so we reckon she can (and will) pick both.
Last week, we laid out the possibility of a complete format change for Castle Season 6. We’re revising that slightly this week. Castle and Beckett in DC, and Espo and Ryan in New York. A bi-locational show, at least for a while. We’re anticipating Tori Ellis (that tech expert, played by Maya Stojan [Entourage, Sinners and Saints], who appeared out of nowhere in “The Fast and the Furriest” and seems to be becoming a sneak member of the cast) will be part of the boys’ new team. There has to be a reason for her increasing presence, and this is as likely as any.
We’re looking forward to finding out in just a few months. – K
