Stana Katic on Last Week’s Epic Finale: ‘I Think Waiting Any Longer Would Have Been Unfair and Dishonest.’
Castle‘s season finale last week left fans who’d been eager to see dynamic duo Castle and Beckett take their relationship to the next level satisfied and excited to see what’s to come.
Stana Katic couldn’t help but tease to us with the “what’s to come” part, but she did share her mutual excitement for the pair’s big step. She took us behind the scenes of the finale by breaking down Esposito’s decision to back Beckett while searching out her mother’s killer, and talk about her big rooftop fight!
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: This season finale felt perfect for the journey we’ve been through this season. Did you see it kind of the same way?
STANA KATIC: Yeah, I loved it. I felt like if we waited any longer it would be untrue to the characters. They’ve gone through a lot together, a lot of really great moments and a lot of really scary journeys together. I think waiting any longer would have been unfair and dishonest. So I think [creator Andrew Marlowe] did a really great job bringing those two characters finally to a point of complete honesty with each other.
Did you have a favorite moment? Hint, hint.
[Laughs] It was very special to me to work with the core team on this episode. Everyone was invested in making it special. And everyone brought a level of performance that I think we haven’t seen up to that point. That added to the story. So there were a lot of moments.
I think that Castle confessing his love over a conscious Beckett was really cool. Really sweet scene. And the boys were amazing; both of them: Seamus Dever and John Huertas. Just stunning. Captain Gates (Penny Johnson Jerald) brought a level of strength that I thought was imperative to that story. It was quite nice throughout. I can’t quite choose one.
Did you like seeing Esposito side with Beckett?
Yeah, John and I have talked about that in the past. We feel that there is probably a back story that signals that the two of them have known each other and been good friends for a while. There’s a certain kind of renegade quality that Beckett has that Esposito also has. Their rules aren’t always as by-the-book as they might seem. They have a certain sense of honor and integrity that is sometimes against the rules, and might not be the safest kind of path. I thought it was really cool to see the two of them have each other’s back in that way. I thought that was a real sweet moment of friendship. We saw a hint of it in “Kill Shot” where Esposito saved her life. And was a real source of friendship there. It was nice to kind of explore. So there were some break-ups and there were some getting together at the end of the season. And one of the break-ups was the bromance, right? So that’ll be a journey that we’ll see next year — we’ll see what happens with Ryan and Esposito. That’s a nice kind of thing to throw into the mix for storytelling next season.
When you saw that Beckett was going to quit, what went through your head?
‘Badass.’ Because everything that she served [and] everything that she has fought for doesn’t have the same meaning at that point. She gave her all to that job, and to be put into question in that way, I feel like a character in that moment, they have a moment of clarity and perspective that difficult to see, like ‘This is what is really important in life.’ In that moment, it was Castle. That’s the only thing that’s important. Even her job as a detective didn’t matter. Finding justice for her mom’s murder didn’t matter. It’s finally just about living life and enjoying the gift that it is.
On to the fight scene — tell me about some of the work that went into that.
It was fun! [Laughs] [The fight coordinator] really wanted Beckett to be a non-issue for that guy. So many times you see her as a tough, motivated action person, and she’s actually owning the space. And in that fight, she’s completely incapable against that man, and I think that’s true to form. She’s gonna fight, she’s gonna give it everything she’s got, she’ll risk her life, but she’s incapable, really, against the forces that she’s facing in that case. And I think that was a really nice showcase for that point.
Now that you say that, I think that’s what scared me during the scene. I was scared FOR her!
Good! Because that’s really what she’s facing. She’s not facing an easy win. If she goes after these people, she is going to die, and that showcased the reality of it. That guy whipped her around like he was a bear and she was a little kitty cat. And that’s a really neat image to show exactly what she was up against in the big scheme of that storyline, in the big scheme of that kind of part of Castle.
So now we have to talk about everything that’s gone on with Castle and Beckett, where do you see it going?
I don’t know what they’re going to do. I know that Andrew is always felt that the show has that kind of His Girl Friday feel. And I feel in any relationship there are these wonderfully charming, complicated moments of adjustment and getting to know each other in a relationship that are quite charming and compelling to watch. So I think if anything they’ll probably explore a lot of that. Andrew has a lot of humor and a wonderful wit about him, and he’s got a big heart in the end. So I think we’ll have that color in anything he writes.
Warning: Do not read unless you’ve seen the season finale!
Castle creator and executive producer Andrew Marlowe knew that last night’s big moment would have fans buzzing. How could it not? After four seasons of ups, downs, and shameless flirting from both Castle and Beckett, the season 4 finale gave fans what they’d been hoping for: a chance to see the pair finally get together!
Bold? You bet. But not as bold as the alternative, says Marlowe. “Not doing it would have been even ballsier because I think the audience is near its breaking point,” he says. “And it’s 2012, people fall into and out of bed together all the time. If it had gone on any longer, we would have been bad storytellers.”
And this new path, which will find Castle and Beckett entering a relationship together in season 5? It’s full with opportunity, he says. “It was important to open up the storytelling. We had done as much storytelling as we thought we could do credibly with not having them together. So the characters either had to go their separate ways or get together,” he says. “We thought there was a lot of fun to be had mining their relationship once they were together because no relationship goes smoothly, and they’re fundamentally different people.”
Marlowe points to classic romances — like those featured in The Thin Man (1934), The Philadelphia Story, and Adam’s Rib (1949) — as his inspiration and the best reference point for the “romantic-comedy fun” that’s to come. “We think these guys can support and sustain that for a long time as we continue to evolve their relationship and both of them as characters,” he says. “We are absolutely convinced we’re going to have a lot of fun in the next several years with these guys as we see what that relationship looks like, because it ain’t necessarily going to be smooth sailing. I think the bumps that come along the way are going to be really fun and funny.”
In fact, he adds, that’s one of the main reasons the show decided to take the plunge now: fun. After a season that has had more than its fair share of angst and dark moments, he wanted a chance to “recommit” to the fundamentals of the show. “What we’re hoping is that getting over this hump of will-they-won’t-they will help us get back to some of the fun stuff we were able to do in the first couple of seasons — her grabbing his nose or grabbing his ear — and the back and forth. Them getting together will allow for that,” he says. “But the sexual tension of the relationship, I don’t know if that goes away when they’re together as long as you handle it well.”
But what of the rest of the story? Beckett’s resignation from the force? Esposito and Ryan’s falling out? And the big threat that we now know looms over Kate? “We’ll put the pieces back together in an interesting way,” he promises. “It gives us a natural launch point for next season — with both relationship stuff and [other] stakes that we’re going to enjoy playing with at the beginning of next year before we pick up all the pieces.”
Above all, he says, “We felt like it was time to get the characters together.” And we have to agree.
Warning: Do not read unless you’ve seen the season finale!
So, CASTLE fans, are you still breathing?
(Take a second, I can wait.)
After all, after four seasons of dancing around each other, Castle and Beckett took a major step forward in their relationship at the end of “Always”…one of those relationship-altering steps that has likely broken a couple of social media sites.
To get some dish on why the timing was right for the duo now, what fans can expect in a probable season 5 and more, I spoke with CASTLE creator Andrew Marlowe to get the dish…
It feels crazy to say it, but Castle and Beckett have now gone there. What made the timing right for these two now?
Andrew Marlowe: Because it was absolutely time. And honestly, this was a decision that became clear to us about 2/3s of the way through last season when we made the decision of how we were ending last season. It’s impossible for Castle to say “I love you” and leave that hanging in the air and have the characters know that that’s out there and wait much longer to deal with that in an interesting and honest way.
We’re 81 episodes in, we’ve done a lot of storytelling having not gone there. And my personal feeling is we were on the verge of creating very artificial mechanisms of keeping them apart. And we were on the verge of rehashing storytelling in their relationship and we were in danger of not moving forward. So we had always aimed for this as being the end [result] of this season. And when people look back on this season, they will see the rhythm and they will look at the moments where they were really frustrated and understand why we did it then and what we were going for, because we always knew we were going to end up here.
When you and I [last] talked and you said “Are you worried about strong fan reaction?” I said, “No, because I know where we’re going.” So, it really is time. And I have to tell you, it’s really exciting for all of us who write on the show, because this opens up a world of possibility in the storytelling. And this season has been a season of secrets, and I think that has caused the season — which I was very proud of, creatively, I think there were a tremendous amount of excellent shows this season — but we paid for some of the angst with a little bit of fun. Inevitably, when these characters are keeping secrets, it’s going to be a slightly more angsty year.
And there were opportunities for fun that we couldn’t take because of what the characters were each holding back from each other. And I think by doing this, what it allows us to do is re-embrace the core values of the show and embrace what CASTLE is all about — that Castle and Beckett relationship and the two of them having fun. Because it’s not like the challenges go away. He’s still going to be Castle, she’s still going to be Beckett. To a certain extent, there’s going to be a higher level of scrutiny that they each put each other under because of where they’ve gone.
Dealing with that is going to be a lot of fun. It’s going to open up new avenues of storytelling, not only for them, but for the people around them. When they decide to let people know, how long they decide to keep it a secret, and all that sort of fun stuff. How they both feel about it the next morning.
I know we’ve talked about this before, but I hear a lot — and I’ve heard a lot in the past couple of years — when are Castle and Beckett going to be in a relationship? And my opinion is they’ve been in a relationship for a really long time. This is just the next step in the relationship and it’s going to cause its own complications. We’re not arriving anywhere — we’re just getting to the next place in the journey. And the journey is going to continue. And it’s going to be fun and it’s going to be challenged.
Where are these two headed? Were all Beckett’s fears about being just another notch on his belt well-founded? Or is she going to be concerned about where the relationship is going given the fact that this guy has been divorced twice? Now that Castle has consummated the relationship, how is he going to feel about Beckett? There’s some really fun stuff for us to play with and we’re looking forward to it. We don’t think this resolves anything, we think this puts them into the next set of fun, friction-y, cool, storytelling that we’re looking forward to playing with.
How much is it a relief for you personally to not have to answer the “When are Castle and Beckett getting together?” question? Or have you not thought about that yet?
AM: I know how life is. And life is, when you’re in any sort of relationship, when you’re hanging out with somebody, your friends are like, “So when are you going to get together?” And then when you get together, it’s like, “When are you going to move in?” And then you move in and it’s like, “So when are you going to get married?” And then you get married and it’s like, “So when are you going to have kids?” The questions aren’t going to stop — they’re just going to become different questions.
And we’re really happy to have people asking those questions. And the reason why we’re really happy is because that means they’re invested in the characters. We want folks to continue being invested in these characters and we want them to continue rooting for these characters when they face challenges. And inevitably, they’re going to face challenges. Hopefully the next question is going to be, “What’s going to happen in the relationship? When is he going to propose? When are they going to get married?” Those kind of questions and the complications that inevitably arise and those things that happen between the two of them will hopefully carry us another 3, 4, 5 years.
While I’m not asking you to reveal your grand plan, do you see a show with them being married and taking that step? Or is that further down the pipeline than you’ve given thought to?
AM: That’s further down the pipeline than I’ve given thought to. And I wouldn’t want to advertise my intentions to fans. I want them to have something to root for. I want them to be rooting for these guys. If you take a look at any great Shakespeare play, even when characters are together, even when they’re sneaking off into the woods at night together and they’re trying to figure out how to conduct their relationship, crazy stuff happens. This is not the end of the Castle and Beckett fun. This is, by the way, not even the end of the tension between the two of them because one tension leads into another tension. These guys have a lot of work given the betrayal and given where we end up with, re-earning each other’s friendship and all that. So that’ll give us a lot of stuff to play with.
I know it was touched upon earlier in the season that Alexis wasn’t as comfortable with the relationship as fans hoped she might be. Will you guys be touching on that next season?
AM: Of course!
Well, given the fact that she was going to college, I wasn’t sure how much she would be around to object to that and playing into their dynamic…
AM: I think it’s an inevitable part of it. And it’s something I’m also very aware of being a stepparent. Both of my kids were really great when I came into their lives. When [Marlowe's wife and CASTLE writer] Terri [Miller] and I got together, the kids were 9 and I was in my mid-20s, and they were incredibly welcoming. But I also know that that can create some really interesting weirdness. [Laughs] So no doubt we’ll be dealing with that.
How was it for you and Terri to cowrite this episode? There are clearly some parallels between the two of you and Castle/Beckett and this was such a major episode for that relationship.
AM: Absolutely. And it was incredibly gratifying for me to have the opportunity to work with her on this one. This is the stuff we do so well together because she brings such a clear perspective from her point of view that is invaluable. And she also brought great clarity and perspective to the Castle and Alexis material in this, with Alexis facing graduation and dealing with the issues that she’s dealing with in this episode.
Given how the episode ended, are we going to be picking up immediately when the show returns next season? I know season 5 hasn’t been officially ordered yet, but I’m guessing you guys have thought some things out.
AM: We have given a lot of thought to how the next season is going to start and we have a pretty clear plan as to how to deal with all the stuff that is brought up in the finale and where we want to take the storytelling.
And as an overall season, one of the things we’re looking to do is re-embrace the fun of the show, so there will certainly be some heavy elements we are dealing with in the season finale, but I don’t want the audience to think that’s going to be the experience of all the fifth season. That’s not going to be the case. We want to deal with the issues that we’re dealing with in the finale openly and honestly, both in terms of the case that Beckett’s investigating and what happens in the Castle/Beckett relationship. And we’ll certainly be dealing with those aspects when we come back next year, but we do want to let our audience know that what they can expect is more of the CASTLE they know and love.
But is this technically the first part of a two-part episode?
AM: We don’t have a “to be continued” at the end of it, but we will be dealing with…when we come back next year, we will still be dealing with elements that are hanging over our heads from this episode.
Before I let you go, do you have any regrets about the season? Or any moments that stood out to you?
AM: You know, I’m really proud of the whole CASTLE team. I’m really proud of the cast — I really think they brought it this year. I’m really proud of the work the crew did; I’m really proud of the writers. Like I said, I get a lot of credit, especially for this past season, it was a great season — but it really is teamwork. There are a lot of dedicated folks doing a lot of hard work. In terms of regret? I don’t think we’ve done anything disastrous, and I really like the shows that we’ve done. Certainly, some are stronger than others and that is inevitable in any TV season. But I was really pleased with the way this season went. And I know some fans got frustrated at some points, but since I knew where we were going, it was never an issue for me. [Laughs] And they were supposed to be frustrated at those points. I just hope we can continue to bring the folks that are watching the show a really great hour of television, week in and week out like we have for the last few years.
Warning: Spoilers for the season finale! Do not read if you wish to remain spoiler free!
Are you still with us Castle fans?
After four seasons of will-they-won’t-they romantic tension, the ABC drama’s Season 4 finale seemingly brought mystery writer Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) together with his muse, Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic). But getting there was no easy task.
After a murder investigation put Beckett on the trail of Cole Maddox (Tahmoh Penikett), the man who shot her in last year’s season-ender, Castle had to reveal the secret he’s been keeping all season: He’s been investigating Beckett’s mother’s murder covertly in order to keep her away from the case and therefore keep her alive. The betrayal hits Beckett hard, and it seems the duo’s partnership is finished.
But after Beckett nearly dies during another run-in with Maddox — and after her recklessness causes her to resign from the police force — Beckett runs to Castle for a passionate make-out session before ultimately leading him to the bedroom.
So, did Castle and Beckett actually get it on? And what does this mean for their future? We took all our questions to creator Andrew W. Marlowe, who assures us, this is only the beginning.
So, you finally put Castle and Beckett together. Why was now the time?
Andrew W. Marlowe: Ultimately, you get to a fork in the road. If we kept them apart any longer, say another season — after what Castle had put on the table at the end of last season — in my mind, that would have been the death of the series. Then, we would have just been being artificial. They would have become brother and sister, and then we’re just ignoring everything that had happened. There comes a point where you have to confront it. … We wanted to get the point where we resolved it and made a promise for next season that these two are going to have to be dealing with their feelings for one another.
Of course, we didn’t see whatever was about to happen in that bedroom. Are you planning to pull a fast one next season?
Marlowe: I have no intention of pulling the rug out from the audience. I think that when that scene ends, everybody is clear on what’s about to happen. We don’t need to see it, but we know it’s going to happen.
So to be clear, there won’t be an urgent phone call that Castle’s mom has been in an accident or something like that?
Marlowe: No. I think we need to get to the other side of the storytelling. I think we’ve played the interruptions as much as we possibly can. And I think we’re really interested to see what’s going to happen with these two. What does that relationship look like? This is going to allow us to reembrace some of the fun, because relationships are tricky things and they don’t always go the way you want them to.
Are you saying this season didn’t have as much “fun” as you would like?
Marlowe: Yeah a little bit. We had a lot of fun this season, but Castle and Beckett were each keeping secrets from one another and weren’t dealing with each other completely honestly. I think some of the angst of this season — we paid for some of that with some element of fun. That by no means is me saying the fun left the show, but we had to spend a little bit of that capital in a different place. Getting to the other side of this allows us to bring … [back] the back-and-forth between them and the physical comedy. It allows us to recommit to the fundamental values of what the show is.
So you want to see them in a more playful place with one another?
Marlowe: [Seeing them] figuring out their rhythms with one another is going to be fun for the audience to watch. In no way do we think this is going to end the fun and the tension between Castle and Beckett because the question is now going to become: Where does this relationship go and how does it affect their ability to work together?
Would you call them a couple at this point or is it not that defined?
Marlowe: I think those are all the questions the characters are going to be asking themselves, and that’s going to be part of the fun. When they wake up the next morning, are both of them still in the same place? And Beckett’s actually resigned from the force. So, what is she going to do with her life now? There’s all sorts of stuff to jump into next season.
Why does Beckett resign in that moment?
Marlowe: It’s a reflection on what she’s been doing with her life and how she’s defined herself. This echoes back to a conversation she had with her therapist in “Kill Shot” where she says, “I want to move past this.” [Does] letting go of her mother’s murder allow her to choose something else in life, where she’s not as driven to be a cop? Or will things happen that will force her to recommit to it?
You mean like the fact that Cole Maddox is still vowing to put her in the ground for good? Will that bring her back to the force perhaps?
Marlowe: We’ll hopefully make it more interesting than that. That’s a little conventional. There’s going to be some of that, but we’re also talking about some other things that are really interesting to us. … But yes, unbeknownst to Beckett, her life is still very much in danger, and that’s something we’re going to be picking up the thread on when we come back next season.
Have you already planned the resolution of that cliff-hanger?
Marlowe: Yeah, we have. I don’t want to go into in too much detail because we still have some moving pieces on the board on that one, and I’m not going to commit myself to anything one way or another. But it is something we plan to pick up on when we get back, but it’s not somewhere we’re looking for the series to dwell. We’re looking to get Beckett beyond some of that stuff to the point where she can rediscover who she is and [she and Castle] can deal with this decision they have made.
Gates was able to bring her claws out again. Will that continue?
Marlowe: Inevitably, we have to see more of that side. Beckett and Esposito [Jon Huertas] have crossed a line. So, what does that mean for them as cops? Gates [Penny Johnson Jerald] ends up being much more of a significant obstacle in the first couple of episodes next season.
And Esposito doesn’t look too pleased with Ryan (Seamus Dever)…
Marlowe: [With] Beckett and Castle getting together, we felt it was time to challenge some of the other relationships so we’d have somewhere to go with the storytelling. Ryan has to make a choice that ends up with Esposito feeling like he’s been betrayed. The two of them are definitely on the outs.
For all the ‘shippers this finale will make happy, we’re sure there’s some who fear this development will hurt the show. What’s your message to that group of fans?
Marlowe: Just because these characters have decided to take the next step in the relationship, it doesn’t make the relationship that much different. This is just a natural progression in a much longer story about these two characters. When two people have traits that are fundamentally challenging to the other, the comedy doesn’t go away. [We] have to deliver great fun shows where the characters are challenged in the relationship the same way they were before they slept together.
So it’s safe to assume the relationship won’t be completely smooth sailing?
Marlowe: We do put the relationship under threat right away with Maddox’s threat at the end of the episode. [Beyond that,] I have a good ballpark sense of where we’re going. And I’m not going to advertise it too much because that’s the fun of the ride. You don’t want to show everybody exactly what the rises and falls of the roller coaster are when they get on it. You want them to be surprised at the twists and turns. Sleeping together is a great hallmark, but to get to the promised land of a happy ending, there’s a long way for these guys to go.
Have you heard for sure that the show has been renewed?
Marlowe: No official word. [ABC is] very supportive of us, but ultimately I don’t want to tempt the TV gods. Fingers crossed we’ll hear good news soon. … It would surprise me if we didn’t come back, but that being said, I’m sure people have been surprised before.
So, when’s the wedding?
Marlowe: [Laughs] Maybe in Season 8 if we’re lucky?
What did you think of the Castle finale?
I have added screencaptures from tonight’s episode of Castle, 4×23: Always, to the photo gallery. I hope that everyone enjoyed the season finale! I thought it was one of the best episodes of Castle so far. If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to watch it when you get the chance. Next week, we’ll know for sure if Castle has been renewed for season five. I have high hopes and good feelings that it will definitely be renewed! We’ll keep you posted, so keep checking back!

Warning: Spoilers for tonight’s episode! Do not read if you wish to remain spoiler free!
Tonight’s season finale episode of Castle will bring us smack dab in the middle of Johanna Beckett’s murder, a case that’s gone unsolved for over a decade. The people involved in the cover-up still want Kate dead, but Rick managed to strike a deal with Mr. Smith — the man Captain Montgomery sent his files to in the Season 3 finale — to keep the detective safe.
But all that changes tonight when a thief breaks into Monty’s widow’s house, steals his old computer, and winds up dead. Beckett hurls herself back into the case, putting her life in the crosshairs once again. And according to Seamus Dever, with whom Wetpaint Entertainment spoke exclusively, there’s so much more at stake than Castle and Beckett’s relationship.
As the layers surrounding Johanna Beckett’s murder begin to unfurl, we’ll get a taste of just how big this thing is.
What can we say about Caskett?
What should we say about Castle and Beckett? I think everyone saw the teaser. It’s one of the things that ABC teased where Castle says something like “I love you.” We can already tell that there’s something that’s hinted there. I think people who have — let me put this delicately — I think people who have wanted for a long time for there to be some progress on the relationship of those two will finally be happy.
Hurray. Well, the teaser has her dripping wet, like lunging herself towards Castle. She probably doesn’t trip.
Yeah. Maybe she was like lunging because someone tied her shoes together, and she’s just falling. And then he just happens to be there. And she’s like, “Oh, no, my shoes are tied together!” You never can tell until you actually see the episode.
The episode itself, is it almost entirely focused on Beckett’s mother’s murder?
Yeah. It actually starts out very interesting. There’s a crime that we’re investigating, and we get an address location because there was a break‑in at a house, and we get the address of where the break‑in was. And it turns out to be Montgomery’s house. So Montgomery’s widow is involved, and we get to go back and see her again.
And from there it grows, and the onion layers get peeled back more and more. But yeah, it’s exclusively investigating that. And we have the new Captain who wasn’t around for all the old stuff. So it’s sort of like there’s some tension involving that as well because I feel like there’s two different worlds colliding. Like the new way and the old way that are coming toget
We have been wondering if there’s more to Captain Gates than we think. But from what you’re saying, she’s the new world?
The way she’s been set up from the very beginning is, she represents a tough‑minded, “Let’s get murders off the books” type. “It’s great that you have this vendetta, Beckett, but we have to think realistically about manpower.” She’s more practical rather than emotional.
We learn that the reason why Montgomery was so emotionally invested in Beckett’s mother’s murder is because he was part of that group. So, I think, her being removed from it, she’s just about numbers. She’s like, “If there’s no other evidence, then we shouldn’t do something about it.” And what ends up coming up is that we start investigating something and we’re trying to keep it away from Gates.
So again, with those lines being drawn, you’ll start to see it very clearly laid out where Castle feels about doing the right thing, means something very different than what Beckett feels about doing the right thing, and the same with Esposito and Ryan. So I think all of us, the four of us, get to really choose what doing the right thing means, and I think we all have different definition. And we sort of all come up with a different answer at the end of the episode.
Well, as far as the murder itself, will there be closure as far as the mystery goes?
I can’t say. Again, my theory on this is it’s going to get so big, that it’s going to be like, whoever the president was at the time of Beckett’s mother’s murder. It’s going to be like Bill Clinton, Beckett’s mother’s murderer. It’s just going to get bigger and bigger and bigger.
But let’s just say, some things do involve Mr. Smith coming back. There’s some interesting things involved with him, and I think you see some developments on that end. So there’s a lot of stuff that happens in this episode. That’s why it took ten days. He comes back and that’s sort of involved a little bit further. We find out a little bit more about his story.
The secret that Castle’s been carrying with him all season, I take it Beckett will find out about this deal?
Well, we’ll see. There’s something that happens to it, and I think it’s something cathartic that happens with both of them because they both have secrets.
You saw this last episode that just aired on Monday. She admitted that she had been going to therapy and was trying to work through some things. And she’s also been keeping the secret. We find out that she remembered everything that happened to her when she got shot. She remembers him saying I love you. So they both have secrets.
So, yeah, this is Castle’s secret that he’s been holding on to. So we’ll see what progress is made with that.
We never found out who Dragon was. Will we know who Dragon was?
I don’t know. It still seems like it’s a group that’s happening, but I don’t know if we learn a little bit more about who’s involved. There’s something else that happens that goes there, and Beckett gets to confront some things because of it. I can’t give you any more specifics. I’ll ruin things if I tell you too much.
Tonight is the season four finale of Castle! Based on all of the buzz, including from the cast and the crew, you are NOT going to want to miss this episode! Beckett’s mother’s murder is revisited, as well as the conspiracy surrounding Montgomery from last season. In addition to all of that excitement, Castle and Beckett finally face their feelings.
