Did You Know?


Castle initially tells Becket they can't get married in September because he has to travel that month. The only days he would be available that month would be on Mondays. The series airs on Monday nights in North America. See more »


When Castle is confronted by the spy in the library, the spy pulls a gun out from under his coat. The sound of the gun being loaded can be heard (racking the slide) when the gun is pulled out. The gun clearly was not loaded, therefore, it would not have made the sound. See more »

Episode 6x12 and Beyond...
14 January 2014 | by castanatiSee all my reviews

Brilliant - Simply, brilliant, a well-executed episode! Fantastic interplay between all of the characters in this episode, even Ryan' showing of little Sarah's picture was smooth an effortless. It fit the motif and scenes timing,very well. The interaction with Castle and Beckett was wonderful, and human with just enough emotional engagement to make you feel that they are in fact in love. Really enjoyed seeing Martha as the "strong insightful mother," and the woman face to face with her lost love, it was a nice change from the stage diva. I thought Castle resolution about his father was both timely and showed an adult Castle, not the witty, bantering court jester. Moreover, I cannot wait for the September - Season 7 "Wedding Event." Kate is also due for a promotion at the 12th - the question is will it come this season or in season 7? I think we all have been holding our breaths, waiting for the big event – the "Wedding of Castle and Kate." Nevertheless, we know that it won't be a wedding without either pre-drama or drama the day of…; several fans have even written possible scenarios - from Kate becoming a "runaway bride," to her having done something very foolish in an effort to not address her love for Castle. Such as marrying Josh ever so briefly, but Josh never signed the annulment papers – Ooops! Now, as much as fans hate, the latter, it seems likely to fit our Kate's personality and mental state at the time. Some have even stated that they will end up at "city hall" I do not think so.... what girl doesn't dream of her perfect wedding day and from Kate's conversation with Castle, Kate is no different. I do suspect that there will be a roadblock, but this is not the time to bring 3XK or any of his "doctor monsters" back. Let them at least have this one, since they will spend the rest of the series embroiled in one type of kiosk or another.

Most importantly, I am happy to see that the writers have rediscovered their "mojo." We were all getting a little worried, but have no fear; it is usually around the 6 season of a series, that direction of the series seems lost. The great thing about Castle, unlike most other crime drama's, is that Marlowe and crew value the fans input and have even used some fan ideas in episodes. The questions that may remain in season 6 – will be whether Castle's dad has a part in the bring down Senator Bracken? The character Kate has to have closure before the wedding day.

Possible season 7 - What will the confrontation look like as the doctor and 3XK meet their swan songs? The face-off here without question will be intense, this has I imagine been an intentional matching on the part of Marlowe - to re-enact a battle between Sherlock Holmes (Castle) and Moriaty 3XK (the doctor of course the "black widow") for those of you who know the older 30's version of the series with Basil Rathbone. The question becomes who will be the next pawn in this life or death game. Could it be a pregnant Kate, and/or Martha? Could this be the storyline that pulls in daddy – Jackson Hunt his skills could be useful here and will this be the storyline to take us into season 8? All and all, I think fans will be in for an exciting season 6 from here to the season's conclusion and we all – including myself have invested in more that our share of popcorn and tissues for Season 7.
