… but he’ll stay for the wedding and babies.
“The important thing to remember is that Beckett is a detective, so she can’t wear things that will identify her, she can’t wear things like that on her hands that would distract from the conversation, that could be stolen, that could possibly hinder her when she’s shooting or hand-fighting.The ring “is something that Beckett’s very protective of, because she loves it, so on occasion, if it’s like a big event or maybe a private moment outside of being in bed, she can wear it. But having it on display at the work place is not appropriate, especially as a detective.” (x)
Stana Katic on the set of Castle | Feb. 19, 2014 (x)
Bets on season 6? “Where’s Kate?” “Do you take this woman…?” “Kate, I lo-“…
What if they pulled a CSI: Miami and have Castle getting shot at the wedding
I dunno what happened on CSI: Miami, but thematically in Castle they alternate between Castle and Beckett doing something i.e. Castle comes clean about investigating her mother’s murder, Beckett almost confesses her feelings for him, Castle tells her he loves her, Beckett chooses him over everything else, Castle proposes…
So it’s definitely Beckett’s “turn” to make some kind of move. It could definitely spring from Castle being shot or hurt otherwise. I’m open to the idea.
Beckett is pregnant?
Personally I doubt they’ll go that route in the show (all bets are off if Katic gets pregnant, of course).
From a meta point of view, I actually wondered in the fall if the reason we got all the Caskett baby foreshadowing then, before the wedding planning started at all, meant Stana was considering getting pregnant. (In universe, I was wondering up until Dressed to Kill if they hadn’t already started trying.)
I’m probably thinking we will have the wedding end of this season and a baby announcement the end of next. But wedding vows are a very mutual thing and so that doesn’t really fit the idea that it’s Beckett’s turn to move things forward.
If they’re only anticipating seven seasons, and if they do want to show a baby on the show, I think Beckett will have to find out end of this season, so they can time jump through some of the desk duty. But those are two big ifs.
My personal feeling is that they won’t want to go there on the show itself, as writing in a baby and having C/B work cases together seems like a big stretch. My gut feeling remains that S7 is the final season, Beckett puts Bracken away in the finale and finds out she’s pregnant. Leaving actual Caskett kids for fanfiction. Otherwise, I agree that if they do want to do it, they have to make use of the time jump over summer.
There are other ways to move things forward apart from pregnancy. I can see their wedding being interrupted, Castle wanting to restage everything and Beckett just going “fuck it” and marching them down to City Hall together. Alternatively MilMar decide to break from the he-did-she-did symbolism because they’re together now and go with they-did.
Nathan with Tamala!
Castle. 4x10 Cuffed. Ah, those opening few seconds when Castle and Beckett woke up together …
Happy 5th Anniversary to Castle.
You’ll be in our hearts, always.
