“Nathan Fillion fondly remembers his first day on set. He was in his trailer when he was called to the stage. “I put on my coat and walked into the studio. The big cargo bay door was open, and I walked up into the cargo bay up this ramp. Someone [called out] ‘Captain on deck!’ And everybody turned and stopped and did like a little mock salute. A couple of people applauded. And I thought, ‘Oh my God. I just got on a spaceship.’ The moment was not lost on me. Every kid wants it.””—From Joss Whedon: The Biography, by Amy Pascale (via belldandy-goddessofthepresent)
The whole getting married in the Hamptons was never for Castle and Beckett. Over 200 people at the wedding didn't sound like Castle and Beckett at all. The Hamptons was tainted way before the events of 623. I am talking about the end of the season 2 finale. Castle going to the Hamptons with Gina leaving Beckett broken hearted. Honestly when Castle and Beckett get married it will probably be at city hall just the two of them.
hmmm. i don’t agree that the hamptons was tainted for them, but i do agree that a wedding of 200 people never felt right to me, not for them. there are more than a few reasons why i assumed the wedding would never happen, and it was at least partly because the wedding didn’t seem like castle and beckett enough. like the writers knew it wasn’t going to happen, so they left themselves room for improvement.
that said, i still think they should’ve let beckett wear the ugly dress and not tainted her mothers beautiful gown. i think that was a shortsighted mistake. probably done to give fans a “win” in an episode that really didn’t have much in the way of winning. would’ve been better to have patience on that one. i would’ve rather seen her destroy the ugly dress at the scene of castle’s accident, not her mothers dress. i would’ve wanted her mothers dress saved for when the day actually happens, because now, that aspect is ruined.
the dress thing bugs me more than i ever thought it would. it’s just that now when i picture their day, whether it’s on the beach with just family or just the two of them at city hall, both of which i think are likely scenarios, i’m left wishing Castle could’ve seen how gorgeous Beckett was in her mothers dress. That moment would’ve meant a lot to me and i think a lot to Castle.
but, what’s done is done. i too thing we’re going to end up with a quicky wedding that’s very small and unplanned. i’m okay with it. it makes more sense to me for them to have a small wedding anyway, something i said a really long time ago. like back when they were talking about guests lists. i had a hard time imagining either of them wanting 100 people there.
immediately. my guess would be by the middle of 701. the story they’re telling is about those two and how they get through whatever happened, together. i’d be surprised if their separation is prolonged any more than is absolutely necessary. especially since they know a lot of fans have negative feelings about the finale. the best way to win fans back is to put Castle and Beckett back together, and have them working together to solve the mystery of whatever happened to Castle.
separating castle and beckett for extended periods of time doesn’t work. that isn’t the show the majority of fans want to watch. the people who produce the show are well aware of that fact.
