Finally! This is hilarious!
I concur! I HATE zombies, but this is freaking hysterical!
Yay! I've been waiting 2 weeks for this. I can't wait for this episode!
funniest episode ever. Castle is so in his element. scared Beckett even more hilarious. can't wait.
Well sorry to say this didn't do much for me may be because of the zombie aspect, just doesn't float my boat but that's not the show's fault.Love Perlmutter though and his humor.Although I don't get Kate's sudden annoyance with Castle, she seemed much softer earlier in the season when he used to spin his wild theories but now she's back to how she used to be at the start just angrily rolling her eyes at him.Could she still be fed up with him after last week?Or is this too much continuity for Marlowe?I presume we're just back to a standard episode with no references to what went before - I hope not, I want there to be at least some recognition that they were/are going through a tough patch. It doesn't have to be a lot just a little!I hope we get some more sneak peeks than this with some sense of them talking to each other about something other than the zombie case.
I'm pretty sure she just can't believe he's actually insinuating that the dead guy was a zombie. That's all...I don't think it has anything to do with still being angry at him. It's just Beckett being aggravated by Castle's typical over-the-top ideas, as she usually is...there's the continuity. Laurie Zaks, one of the exec producers, tweeted that Christine Boylan, who wrote this ep, managed to combine romance and zombies. So, don't presume just yet that this episode is going to be filler or have no reference to what's going on between them. I have a feeling it will.
The ABC promo has a short clip from this episode where Beckett mentions she's ready to talk about her shooting. So there will definitely be a scene regarding that.Beckett wasn't that annoyed at Castle--she briefly rolled her eyes since he asked Perlmutter a silly question.More importantly, Beckett totally freaked out when the zombie came back to life..she didn't threaten to shoot him or anything..haha! She doesn't say so but I think she believes Castle's theories at this point.
Plus, I think the more she rolls her eyes at Castle's " ridiculous" theory, the more she is proven wrong and he's proven right when the zombie does his thing...it wouldn't be as funny if Beckett ( and Pearlmutter) had agreed with him!! It's like " holy crap, for once his crazy theory is right!". Who are the idiots now!!
Well I'm hoping your right about this having some romance because based on what I've seen with that clip the idea that these two have any real sexual chemistry hidden away is pretty far fetched. I realise they're working but I just was left very cold by their interactions, he's just business as usual and she's simply fed up with him.Lets hope if more clips come out we might see a softer Kate because she has come off way too cold and lacking empathy recently. I know she had a reason with Castle acting up but Marlowe has to make me believe they seriously love each other and right now sorry I can't buy into that idea. Especially the idea that they may be hooking up in the finale, it's just too jarring.Such a pity I don't like zombie stories (sigh).
Dude. Seriously. It is ONE clip. Stfu about Marlowe. Seriously sick of these complaints. If by now you don't believe Caskett love each other or even care about each other than YOU are the problem. Not Marlowe. I know i'm being rude but enough is enough. Watch the episode before assuming the worst.Why keep watching if you don't enjoy the show. It is not just about the "romance." This clip shows their working relationship. Beckett still does find the time to be aggravated by a Castle theory. She's been teasing him and cutting him off before he can spin or she's giving him love eyeballs this season, but it's totally in character for her to roll her eyes occasionally as well. I would, too, if someone wanted me to believe there's a zombie in my presence. Seriously... give the show up if you're not convinced at this point these two have chemistry.Btw, I don't give off sexual vibes all day, every day with my boyfriend because we're adults and can save that for when we're alone... not in the preswnce of others.This one clip doesn't call for anything sexual to be on display. The show can't always be about Caskett's romance as it is also a crime drama.Jeez!
We get "classic" Castle moments and some fans are still complaining. At this stage for some of the people around here NOTHING AM delivers will be good enough.Btw, I rewatch season 4 this past week and was lmao throughout the episodes for the most part. The comedy is still there, it's just some people are only focused on the romance and are not paying attention to the rest of the show.They've lost their sense of humor, but this show is still hilarious. Luckily for me I love all the characters and the show overall and that's why I don't have many complaints about the show or the Caskett romance, which has gotten better with each season.I watched this clip expecting Beckett to be cold to Castle because I read comments first.... not surprising that I loved the clip and saw my Castle & Beckett back together again. Beckett is known to give him that wtf look from time to time. HaHa! Plus Perlmutter was in his element and being mean and rude and short. HaHa!Fans wanted seasons 1 & 2 vibe back.... and when they get it, it's still not enough.I don't get the complaints most of the time. The episode surely will have continuity as a promo already showed Beckett discussing the day she got shot. So why complain about something you've yet to see or don't know what's to come? Why not hope to see something without the negative vibes shooting all over the place?I just feel like even when Caskett get together those complaining now will STILL be complaining.
Yes Anon 11.54 PM you are being rude and no I don't have a problem because I don't see something you see as being obvious, I simply have a difference of opinion that's all and you should respect mine as I respect your opinion to think as you do.If you had read my post I qualified it by saying I realised they were at work and that also I hoped we would get more clips to see something better between them.I just don't see the chemistry anymore with these two especially recently that's my opinion and I'm not expecting everyone to agree with it by any means. And I wish people would stop saying "stop watching the show if you don't like it" whenever anyone dares to criticise it. I'm a fan who has watched every episode since the pilot and bought every series DVD and I don't see why I can't say if I'm not currently happy with how Marlowe is handling this season and the Rick and Kate relationship. Just because fans dislike their show sometimes does NOT mean they should be told to stop watching because they're not true fans. Surely many fans across many shows have some seasons they prefer more than others, this is not unusual - for me season 4 has been poor in my opinion and I shall not be watching many of the episodes again, this is my choice but I respect others who have loved it. But I find it insulting as a long time fan to be told to go and watch something else because I dare to say anything against Marlowe who is the creator and guiding force behind the show, I have not been abusive and I have explained why - as long as you do that you should have every right to express a view.
Anon 11:54 Bravo for saying this, my sentiments exactly
@Anon 2:55, dear you have every right to say what you said. I am with you.
@Anon 2:55 PM, well said. I agree with you 100%.
Yes, but going through an entire season with people complaining about everything ends up sounding like one big whine-fest. You have to have some stamina if you can suffer through an entire 22-episode story arch that you hate! I felt like that about Bones this season - I've been a fan since season 1, and finally stopped watching it after the first one or two episodes this year. Rather than complaining about every episode for a week until the next, I decided to stop watching the show and just let the people who still enjoy it actually enjoy it.
Anon 2:55, as someone who has very different opinions from you with regards to season 4, I would like to say I agree wholeheartedly about respectful posting. It is fun to discuss all opinions about the shows each week; it is not fun to weed through posters berating each other. Anon 1:09, I'm right there with you re: Bones. Having lost passion for a show that has lost its way, it's a waste of time to spend any effort on it. That's another reason I respect fans who, in coherant ways, debate high and low points of Castle each week. Whether or not I agree with them, this is still a show good enough to be passionate about, and I like to see that (in respectful ways).
This definitely goes on my list of top 10 favorite Castle moments!LOL, I love how freaked out Beckett is by the zombie. I think she actually started believes they are real but won't admit it.After all, since when has she needed backup to deal with one unarmed, creepy looking guy?
ROFL. Castle had a point, man. WOW! That was very funny. Guess .. they are giving laughter meds before it gets serious for finale, "Always". So, I am gonna love this "Zombie" one very much, of course, laughing my A** off! LOL.And then Always.A for Always.B for Beckett.C for Castle.And I love this ABC.
Ha! Perlmutter is funny in this scene. "There are no zombies Castle! This man was a live man, and now he's a dead man!" And then they freak out! I love how all three of them freak out, and Beckett becomes flustered.
This is funny. Glad they are bringing the comedy back in the show. Anon Apr 26, 10:07 AM - I can understand your frustration. I was exactly in your place till a few days back. I was so miserable. Now, I am getting over it. Try to enjoy the humor.This is becoming more like a support group for Caskett shippers.
"This is becoming more like a support group for Caskett shippers."LOL, that is so true. After the last few episodes, I have sympathy for the shippers--but I think at this point they should just relax & enjoy the ride.
Funny stuff Anon 10.18AM coming back to say I know I should enjoy the show for what it is - probably funny filler - but given all that has happened I just think it shouldn't be too much to ask to have them refer to how they're feeling in some way.I realise there will be no big declaration or anything but that's why it's a problem for me because it's clear that everything is going to get stuffed into the finale. I would rather this zombie episode had been put much earlier and we had time to see Kate actually face up to Rick's secret. At least get ONE thing out the way now and leave room for more in the finale.Any way, I shall try to do as you say and get over it but it's hard! If there is no continuity in this episode I must admit I will be a rather disappointed. But we get what we get and we have to deal with it, such is the life of a Caskett fan!
Anon 11:08, even I feel they will stuff everything into the finale and it will be overwhelming. This season is more choppy story wise. Initially, the way it was moving in season 4 with the Cuffed episode and the other episode where beckett says to Castle 'when we get married...', I thought they would bring them together this season and in the finale, they break up because of castle's secret and they would start fresh again in season 5.
Anon 5.43PM, just coming back to say that I thought they were gearing up for then to be together after Cops & Robbers they seemed so close and happy but then everything just ground to a halt and the writers appeared to be just making them tread water because nothing really happened. Sadly I felt their chemistry just really nosedived after that from where it had been earlier.It's got to the point now where I don't want them to hook up this season because it would seem pretty unbelievable to me to go from where they are now emotionally to sleeping together. I want their romance to be romantic and I don't see how packing everything into the finale along with discussions about both their secrets will aid that.I'm also concerned that Marlowe will simply have them split up as he normally does each summer.Any way we shall soon see in a few weeks time and no doubt be discussing it on here.
I think Undead Again is going to be a really fun episode! I love that Laurie Zaks, one of the executive producers, tweeted recently that Christine Boylan, who wrote this episode, managed to combine romance and zombies. That makes me think we'll get some sweet Caskett moments in this episode. I'm sure they're saving the big guns for Always, but I think this episode will leave us smiling for reasons other than zombie wackiness. I also think the title Undead Again refers to more than just zombies...I think it may be referring to the state of their relationship. The revival of the sweet stuff, the romance begins in this episode and will reach a huge moment in the season finale.PS I love Perlmutter. I mean, I LOOOOOVE Lanie, but this guy's misery just makes me laugh. Also, Beckett's hysterical in this scene...from her exasperated sigh when Castle asks if the guy could have really been a zombie to her yelling for Castle to call for back-up...it was all fantastic!
You are right on Elena!! I love grumpy ole Pearlmutter, especially his exasperation at poor Castle!! If he was in every other episode, I wouldn't mind a bit!! And Beckett waving her gun around? She didn't know what the heck to do with that Zombie!!! But our brave girl goes right after him with no hesitation while Castle and Pearlmutter are still untangling themselves from the instrument tables!!! Who do you exactly call for backup in the case of zombies??? Michael Jackson!!???
Beckett is like the honey badger...she don't care, she's going to smack the $h!t out of it!!
Yes, Perlmutter is a great character...I wish they would make him a series regular.The title "Undead Again" seems like it's referencing zombies, that comment Castle made about Beckett being 'dead' to him in "47 seconds", as well as the resurrection of Castle & Beckett's relationship.
Naturally, Beckett's backup is going to consist of a very confused looking Ryan and Esposito.I can't wait to see their reaction to this..lol!
Elena, could it be possible Laurie Zaks meant romance between zombies!!!! :p what if it turns out to be some epic zombie love story!!! :D. Eeeeewwwww!!!!
Well seen! Yeah, I like that idea.
Anon 11:10, I wondered the same thing...if there's gonna be some weirdo love triangle amongst people involved in the zombie sub-culture we're gonna explore in this episode. Maybe it's a little zombie lovin', a little Caskett lovin'? We'll see!
@Anon 11.10Ha ha ha. Sure, love beyond death.She-zombie: I'll always love you.He-zonmbie: Seriously? Even after I die?She-zombie: Yes, in life and death.He-zombie: Even if I die like...right now?She-zombie: Yes.He-zombie: Even if I die, then live again, then die again?She-zombie: Yes.He-zombie: Even if I were a zombie?She-zombie: Even then.He-zombie: OK. Let's prove it.She-zombie: What?He-zombie: Yes. Let's go zombie and not-live happily ever after.[after some time not-living together and having joined other zombies... they run into Caskett in an alley]Anon. from Spain
Hahahaha...you guys are awesome!!!-Anon. 11:10
OMG, only a show like Castle would be able to pull off a zombie love triangle!!! This is gonna be great episode, regardless!!
Hey, maybe Castle and Beckett go undercover on a double date with a pair of zombies; that's why that first zombie in the CTV promo looks so much like Castle...cause it is!!! Would love to see Beckett as a zombie...she would be flippen' adorable!!
OMG that's funny! Was looking forward to this episode, now I'm really REALLY looking forward to this episode!Happy Birthday Stana Katic!
I love Kate yelling, "Castle, call for back up!" It shows that they really are partners again. And I have to point out, there's not a hint of blonde bimbos anywhere near this episode. Let's hope it stays that way. ;)
Yep, that comment is telling me Castle is going to be Kate's go-to guy this episode. :) It's so nice to see them working together again!
Cant't stop laughing !! I'M GONNA LOVE THIS ONE !!!!
Wat do they say in this sneek peek?
Beckett: So do we have cause of death?Perlmutter: I assume by 'we' you mean me. I'll have answers after I cut him open.Castle: Charming.P: Yeah, we're all meat, Castle. Get over it. What I can tell you is his teeth match the bite marks and the blood on his clothes came from the victim. Kyle Jennings is your killer.B: The question is, who killed him?P: Isn't that always the question?C: I- ugh...P: What is it, Castle?C: No, I was just wondering. Before this man died, he was behaving exactly like a zombie. Is there any medical way to determine if he actually was...one.B: UghP: Ok, why is he in my morgue? There are no zombies, Castle. This is a man. He was a live man, now he's a dead man....C: He's undead!lots of indistinct grunting/yellingB: Castle, call for backup!
Thank you very much!
It's only 11 days until they have sex.
Maybe. I'm not getting my hopes up for the blind item because I don't want to be disappointed if it turns out it's not Caskett.
"Is there any medical way to determine if he actually was... one" HISTERICAL
HAPPY BIRTHDAY STANA!looks like it will be hilarious episode
lmao looks like a super funny episode
"WHY IS HE IN MY MORGUE?!" Loved it!!!
Watch it be something like that fish powder (I think it's from a blowfish, but idk for sure) that slows your heart rate down so you appear dead but then BAM! you wake up not so dead after all. So the acting like a zombie was totally just an act
Right! Thanks. I was kinda close
Fugu/blowfish/pufferfish... it's all the same. Everybody's right.
"Undead again" has only ONE possible meaning: Castle flips the love switch back to full on position.I can think of only one thing that would do that!Some indication from Beckett that it would be appreciated or welcomed or RECIPROCATED!!!!!!!I predict a major lurv break through next Monday.MAJOR!!
B: castle call for backup!! (lol what should he say....no one gone believe him..)
How do you kill a zombie? Silver bullets?
No, that's werewolves...I think zombies you have to blast them in their head. I'm not positive, though, I have never really been that into zombies...although this episode might change my mind!!!!:)
i'm no expert - if i meet a zombie in a dark alley, or a well-lit morgue, I will run before I fight - but I believe you have to remove their head from their body to destroy them... or maybe that's vampires. Vampire lore has gotten so confusing lately... :-p
You kill vampires with a wooden stake, and werewolves with a silver bullet. I don't think you can kill zombies, because they're already dead. I learned from Scooby Doo that even if you take off their heads, they'll still come after you. So as far as zombies are concerned, you're SOL if you run into one. So watch out for those dark allies people! You'll never escape a horde of the undead. ;)
I think the only effective way to kill a zombie is to squash them into paste...If that is not an option, you can stop them by putting them on a treadmill or storing them in a container of some kind.
LOL. I like the putting them on treadmill idea.
This conversation has turned strangely serious. ;) The treadmill is a great idea, btw. I wonder if Castle and Beckett know about that.
You can kill a vampire( at least Bram Stocker's ones) by staking them or putting their head appart from their bodies,your choice.
DOUBLE TAP. 'Nough said.
This is going to be one of those sleeper hit episodes. Don't let the zombies fool ya. We are leading up to a great finale and this ep is going to get the ball rolling!!
Yep, just like Dial M for Mayor was one of those unexpectedly awesome episodes- I think this one will be the same.
Yes it was funny what went down with Dial M For Mayor. The moment they announced it and gave the synopsis, quite a lot of people immediately assumed that it was just going to be a repeat of The Final Nail from Season 3, that was until a sneak peek came out a few days before the episode aired depicting a link to the Johanna Beckett case, meaning all the grumbling stopped and people suddenly were very interested in the episode lol. Of course The Final Nail was a tough one for the shippers because it involved Castle and Beckett arguing for most of the episode. People don't like it when their dear Caskett aren't in a good space, just look at the reaction to The Limey. Another funny thing I remember was an episode still for 47 Seconds that showed Tim Guinee's character and Kate together in the interview room standing close to each other, a little too close for some fans!
This is hysterical!! Can't wait for the episode!!
Guys rewatch Demons ending, I think that was foreshadow what Rick said to Alexis.
what did he say to Alexis?
Nice catch! C: (relationships, blah, challenges, blah) [talking not helping, snuggling does]I can promise you this: if two people believe in something, really believe, anything, even the impossible, is possible.A: Even... flesh-eating zombies?C: Oh, especially flesh-eating zombies.
you are a GENIUS!!!!!more and more exciting!!!!
Perlmutter is back!! wow!! lol!!:)And all this time, I thought "Deep-Fried Twinkie" was going to make an appearence in this episode!!!! After all she was only seen once...The_Unicorn22 from Canada.
Wheres Lanie?? she needs to be there to pull Beckett into line again!! This episode is going to be amazingggg :)
Laughing. Loving. Counting down.
I think Undead Again is gonna be a lot of fun mixed with some sweet Caskett moments. Of course, I think they're saving the big stuff for Always, but I'm still pretty excited for this episode. PS Thanks for what you said about hoping they get Caskett together if for no other reason than for loyal shippers like me. I really appreciate that sentiment. I'm still not 100% certain the Blind Item is about Caskett (though I still can't think of another strong contender) but I'm hopeful and optimistic.Seeing them fall into bed is not a deal breaker for me at this point. I'd love to see it happen in the finale...I think it's quite likely...but I'm mostly concerned with them having an honest conversation with no interruptions and full disclosure. That's what's most important to me heading into the finale. I do think we'll get some pretty major progress for them...I mean, Andrew and Terri wouldn't have named the episode Always for no good reason, right? :)
Hey ladies, good to have your comments again here - especially yours She-ra, as this sneak peek seems to appeal to you in spite of your criticism. I'm so glad, since I find it really hard to get over true fans' negative comments and low hopes for what's coming. By the way, i'm still waiting for your insights about the rules of writing being broken this season... PLEEEAAASE! It woouldn't be showing off but sharing your pro's perspective!And Elena, I'm right there with you about the blind item. It wouldn't bother me if it wasn't Caskett because I also think a profound and heart-stripping conversation is far more important at this stage. So while I do think the sexual tension they have withheld for all this time is due to explode at some point, I'd rather have a depiction of their shared and declared love than a peek of a rushed, rough hook-up. I for one don't think that would do these wonderful characters justice. Ausiello doesn't suggest that we actually see them hooking up, does he, so we might just witness the "foreplay", as he said that's what happens before sealing the deal, which could also refer to a big fight..!?!But anyway, it's Marlowe we're talking about, so we might end up getting even that pivotal scene through SUBTEXT! LOLSandra
As far as I remember, Espo and Lanie are secretly hooking up and we viewers get to see that soon...lets see Marlowe and team were bluffing;)
LOL The ME and Beckett were waiting for Castle's great insight, until Castle suggested that the dead man was really a zombie. HAHA"Castle, call for backup!!" Classic. Haha
Brazilian fanDo not know if we will see Castle and Beckett under the sheets later this season.I do not know if this will fit into a tense episode.But I would be happy with a frank convesa where the feelings were laid out and a real emotional and passionate kiss.I think I'd be happier at the end solve the two take a trip together.On the return of season 5 then the first scene would be the two agreeing in the same bed. I think when it comes to Beckett she deserves a more delicate scene, a scene not burning hot sex, this would be outside the context of the show that never appealed to sex scenes. Only one scene with Castle's ex-wife, who was more comical than hot.Sorry, my English is not very good.
Read that stana is in new delhi, india . Im from bangalore...how I wish she'd be here in bangalore. my friends n just love the way she acts.we love her here in Bangalore she's brilliant. im sad I dont get to meet her or atleast get a glimpse .delhi is way too far... if she was here we'd definitely meet her :(.. I dont miss an episode, I download them the day it releases in the US and I try to stay informed about the show through these websites ... IF ONLY I could meet stana once ...
where in Delhi exactly ??? I'm in Delhi and would love to meet her ...
She's probably on holiday. Please, let's not anybody bombard her on Twitter or Facebook asking where she is and if they can meet her. She's just like anybody else right now, having some time off from work, leave her be. Actors are people not traveling circus acts.
I think she is working.
She's there for work too they say! wot's Ashok Amritraj's company up to these days?Jism 2? Ragini MMS 2? Zanjeer? Heroine?? :o
Not gonna trouble... dont worry
Stana Katic doing Bollywood? Oh, I hope so...
That sneak peek was quite awesome. Catching Beckett off guard while having Pearlmutter completely stumped. The game is afoot indeed.
I'm so looking foward to this Zombiesque episode. A funny, lighthearted, cute episode, with i hope a lot of Caskett sweet little moments, like in the fairytale ep. Love eyeballs, hand holding, a genuine smile, maybe a confession (not a big one… something sweet like "you're cute when you get angry", maybe a bit of teasing… you know, that extra push they both need in order to pour their hearts out in the finale.Then everything is possible.Have a great week-end everyone…
I'm really looking forward to this episode too!It's weird, but I'm actually glad they've only given one sneek peek for this episode so far. The jokes are always best when it's a surprise the first time.The Canadian promo focused on the zombies, which was what I expected--but the ABC promo caught me off guard this time.It was relationship focused yet guarded, which made me think they are hiding some juicy details. ...or perhaps for thinking that, I am simply falling into their trap! lolI think I've preferred the Canadian promos this season overall--CTV seems less intent on messing with my mind. ;)
Two new sneak peeks, number 3 is so.....I don't know...http://www.wetpaint.com/castle/video/preview-clip-alexis-wants-to-leave-the-nest-in-castle-season-4-episode-22-undead-againhttp://www.wetpaint.com/castle/video/preview-clip-martha-confronts-castle-about-beckett-again-in-castle-season-4-episode-22-undead-again
They've added 2 more. So there are 4 new ones altogether!!!!
OMG.. it's so sad...
"turns out....not so funny." Thats what it looks like his mouth is saying in sneak peek 4. At the end u cant hear the end of his sentence. Is that what everyone else got?
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG! NOOOOOOOO! Sooooooo Sad! Beckett fix this! LOL And Castle let me give u some advice. From one of my favorite movies I quote: "When a man loses his woman he goes after her. It's as simple as that." :DDD
What does Castle say after "I will treasure this special monte " or something ??help please!
"I will treasure these special moments we've shared."
"i will treasure our special moments". np.
its "these" not "our" anonymous 8:05
moment, no monte.... sorry
Ok so obviously the slaughtere case didn't teach him anything. This guy really is blind, I think headhunters showed him enough to at least wonder that he may be wrong right, and try to talk things out. Goodness, their dramas never ending. So cliffhanger of this episode, is that he leaves...right when Beckett is going say she is finally accepting everything that happened. Ok I don't want to judge before the episode, but of this happens, seriously this wood be the most cliched show I've ever seen, and if Beckett is interrupted again, as everyone is already predicting, it's will be beyond ridiculous. So let's wait and see.
beckett is not talking to castle,i dont think they are going to be interrupted but maybe castle will hear secretly this conversation,i dont know but this ''leaving presinct''played once and now againnothing to say,it seems they all packed everything to final episode which is only 43 minutes
It would be so sweet if someone could write what is said in sneak peeks.Thanks a lot. That would be very kind.
Sneek #2:--Alexis is trying to decide between Stanford & Oxford--She doesn't want to go to a school close to home--Castle ask Alexis to play lazer tag but she declines, and suggests that they both should "act like adults". Sneek #3:--Beckett calls Castle, but he hangs up.--Martha questions Castle, he says he and Beckett aren't "seeing eye to eye".--Martha suggests that Castle's recent behavior with Slaughter & his blonde date explains why he and Beckett aren't getting along. She suggests that if Castle intends to 'punish' Beckett, he should at least tell her why.--Castle seems unsure of himself, he says "I'm not punishing Beckett...am I?" However, Castle still looks hurt.--Castle then admits that Martha is right, he picks up the phone and tells Martha he is going to the crime scene and this will be his last case with Beckett.
Thanks for those two. Very nice.
Oh man...just saw all the sneak peeks.I think I'm going to grab my helmet, and brace myself for the onslaught of fanbase-panic. :O
IMO, all those sneak peeks take place about the beginning of the ep.So, I think that something's good gonna happen near the end... Am I right?
maybe.......hopefully.......I mean they are on a case together in the season final and they r smiling on the way to the crime scene sooooo.....yes? LOL
I think Beckett will say or do something significant that encourages Castle not to leave, or she be in some kind of danger that foreshadows the finale & Castle will want to stay to protect her.I also think Alexis will choose Stanford even though they rejected her, and this will mirror's Castle's eventual decision to stay with Beckett at the end of the episode.It's also possible that Alexis' college decision will make Castle realize how lonely he will be once she's gone, and that might pull him closer to Beckett too.
Ooooh, I like your idea about Alexis and Stanford mirroring Castle and Beckett - I hope you are right! It definitely seems like they'll reconcile by the end of the season, hopefully in a big way! I am slightly apprehensive that Castle might leave at the end of this episode, only to have them confront each other and make up in the season finale - bracing myself for the worst while still hoping for the best ;) I love Martha - I'm so glad she's trying to talk some sense into her son....and her line about the Tony's was hilarious. The scene with Alexis was pretty sad - I felt so badly for Castle....his, "Who's going to play with me?" made me shed a little tear!
Maybe something good happens but then Castle's secret comes out and back into the woods we go.
Yeah, even if this episode ends on a hopeful note I think the finale will end with them feeling unsure about each other. Castle's secret is supposed to come out at "the worst possible time" so they will admit their feelings, kiss etc., and then be torn apart by Castle's secret....that will be the emotional cliffhanger most likely.We'll probably have to wait until season 5 to know if Beckett forgives Castle.
I don't see why Castle's secret is a big deal. He's not investigating behind her back. All he did was to try and talk her into taking a break from investigating (because he is trying to prevent her from being killed).I'm assuming that Molly Quinn wil be in S5, so I'm thinking that something has to happen to convince her to change her mind about Oxford or Stanford; something has to happen that will convince her to continue living with her dad. I'm wondering if Castle will get injured to the extent that it makes Alexis want to stay and be with him.
I honestly don't understand why people are so upset. I am loving this arc because it's a role reversal of sorts. Instead of Castle not being sure about Beckett's feelings and watching her distance herself, it's Castle doing that now.Most of the relationship has been Castle putting himself out there (obviously not all the time, but most of the time). Let Beckett be the one who has to put herself out there instead of Castle this time. And let's be honest: yeah, Castle is acting like a major idiot and being unconsciously hurtful to Beckett. However, Beckett could definitely confronted Castle about his behavior, but she really hasn't because it's easier for her to avoid talking about things.
I just hope Beckett steps up to the plate and takes some action this time...she has talked to Lanie & her therapist and ruminated for months, so it's really disappointing that she still hasn't confronted Castle. I think Castle will either have to leave her for good or be on his deathbed before she speaks up.
Tell me about it, it's been so annoying, she's been acting like a child who doesn't know her own mind. She's a grown woman meant to be crazy in love with this guy but she's spoken to just about everyone including the DHL delivery guy now about what she should do!SPEAK to Rick instead! I mean how complicated is this to figure out. She is so passive that I actually am getting to the point where I don't feel she deserves him.I feel so sorry for Rick and I agree the guy would have to lose a leg or two before she even looks like she would make an effort to say anything.
i hear you
I always was thinking that Castle have to leave Beckett to make them talk it is just so painful to watch. And Jon said that the two come a little closer but then they will pull apart again.
At least you can see that his decision hurts him and it will not be easy for him to go his look at beckett at the crimescene after he said something to Perlmutter is very painful.
just know its going to be a great fun episode,and i just know good things are going to happen soon.
I'm sad. This is going bad. Alexis 'abandoning' him, he's working their last case together, nobody is saying how they feel. Awful. Marlowe really likes driving until the tank is out of oil. Then he will fill it up on the last episode. So I hope or the fandom is going to run out of nail from exhaustive biting. ;)
UGGHHH! Castle you totally took your mothers advice the wrong way!! I understand hes upset but STUPID MAN! I thought he was supposed to have learned something from working with Slaughter ! I want to cry and scream and freak out ( and i already have a bit..okay alot )but im still gonna hold out that something positve will happen in this episode by the end since these sneak peeks seem to be from the beginning . But then again it might be that Becketts about ready to talk to castle then he blurts out that this was the last case, we see kates face then end scene a cliffhanger for the finale..I dont know these past episodes since 47 seconds have been so hard to watch... im still looking foward to the finale because i really think it will be sorted out then .I know some people will disagree but there are so many things pointing to major progression for caskett such as the stana and nathan comment saying on a scale of one 1 to 10 caskett fans would be a 12.595..., and since stana is a shipper i trust her ;) My only fear is that the finale will seem to packed/rushed...Im freaking out but still am holding on to hope until the finale !-Brittany
Brittany, You have spoken what everyone feels and thinks. LOL
Aww thanks ! I just have to type my frustrations out ...it makes me feel so much better and Im so glad I have a place to talk to other Castle fans who understand my feelings!!-Brittany
I actually really love this arc. Emotionally, their relationship has been really one-sided with Castle putting himself out there more while Beckett stays behind her wall.Yes, Castle is hurt and acting like an idiot, but Beckett's contributing to their dysfunction just as much as Castle is. Ultimately, Castle has done what is best for Beckett, even when it hurts him. Beckett has not done the same thing. She needs to put herself out there emotionally even if she thinks that Castle has given up.To me, that's what this storyline arc is about: a role reversal where Beckett has to watch Castle putting up walls even though she loves him and wants to be with him.Is it frustrating?? Of course. But, I think that for the relationship to truly work, Beckett has to come to terms with the fact that Castle can't keep getting jerked around. He has his own feelings too and he can't wait forever. She just has to decide if solving her mother's case/keeping her heart protected is more important than being with Castle.
Just to be clear, Castle has told Beckett this is their 'final' case together? or atleast that is the assumption from these peeks right
I don't think he did. By the way Beckett looks so shocked and hurt in promo 4 about how he will treasure these special moments they shared to the ME I don't think he said anything.I truly think his plan was not to say anything till the case is OVER. Which is even more cruel. :("So case close....oh by the way I'm leaving. Yeah, this was my last case. Didn't I tell u?" :P
I don't think he did either, the way she looks at him when he says that seems a bit confused as if she's wondering why he's said that. I think he was going to wait until after the case is over.Otherwise Kate is coming off way too casual about losing the guy she loves in my view if that's all she can do reaction wise to his comment.
@brittany when did they say that?
I think it was sometime around paleyfest...it the only think keeping me from losing it lol!-Brittany
Does anyone else just want to grab Castle by the neck and shake him while yelling "YOU ARE AN IDIOT! ARE YOU BLIND?! GET IT TOGETHER MAN! GOT GET YOUR WOMAN AND STOP BEING A JERK!.....love u :D" LOLOLOLOL!
One second...Let me think about it...NO...
Then u don't have a sense of humor and don't know that i was just joking. XD
I do want Castle to confront Beckett since passive-aggressiveness and moping really doesn't suit him.However, I've mostly wanted to strangle Beckett over the past few episodes since she still hasn't spoken to Castle about her feelings after multiple pep-talks with Lanie and Dr. Burke. Even Ryan and Esposito have shown concern about her, lol.I realize that Kate is probably intimidated by Castle's strange behavior at this point, but she should be well aware of how long he has been waiting.Kate really needs to get her act together and tell Castle she has sincere feelings for him. Castle doesn't have any reason to stick around anymore: not only did Beckett break his heart, but also his book deal is nearly up.
Not at all. I totally get how he's feeling.Besides, love is a two-way street. Is he being stupid and hurtful to Beckett?? Of course. But, notice that she's not doing anything to confront him about it. She's contributing to their dysfunction just as much as Castle is.
Of course Castle took his Mother's observations the way he did. This is exactly the sort of thing I expected Marlowe to set up for the final.So far as Rick knows, Beckett doesn't, and never has, felt the same about him that he does about her. Even if he now realizes that his recent behaviour was in fact a way for him to punish Beckett without having to directly confront her, all he can now do is what he has to think the "adult" thing is (paralleling his talk with Alexis) and step down. He thinks Beckett has never viewed him as someone worthy of taking a chance on. Why would he stick around? The only reason he came back was for Beckett and now all he can conclude is that no matter how long he waits, Beckett will never come around.I think Castle is gonna remain broken hearted heading into the finale - I think that Mystery Man/Chessmaster Dude is gonna call upon his pawn in a way that will make Castle stay with Beckett to try and protect her even he thinks she'll never love him, and moreover, never forgive him for his secret should she ever find out. Castle will sacrifice his heart and be willing to lose everything that made him want to return to the precinct, even after having been dropped by all his friends in the wake of Roy's death.I pretty much get the feeling, having watched all the eps with Paleyfest etc in mind, that Nathan's been very accurate - that there will be "ebb" right until the very bloody last, and then there will finally be some "flow." Marlowe has also stated that the Zombie aspect was to have some fun and humor amid ongoing tumultuous relationship issues. The fact that this now includes Castle facing the prospect of his daughter moving out and moving on just adds to the angst for the guy. Relentless, Mister Marlowe sir, you're utterly relentless.One thing I never expected from Castle was to take Slaughter's advice, to storm the beaches, precisely because that's what differentiates Castle, he respects Beckett to much to keep chasing her after he thinks she's made it clear she's not into him. Slaughter would just keep after her, and that's just creepy bordering on harassment. Castle's much too decent a guy to do that.I wonder if Castle will tell Beckett he's approaching this as their last case together or not. I suspect not. I think that would too directly echo earlier seasons, and I think it will continue the lack of communication between them So, yep, another passive-aggressive mutually heart-aching angsty ep. With Zombies, to add just a touch of levity, lol.Oh Marlowe. Playing the strings of the fandom like a yo-yo.
Finally somebody who uses paragraphs and actual punctuation. Thank you so much! Was it somehing that only bothers me because my native language is not English or is there more grammar freaks out there?By the way, I totally agree with you comment.
Anon 10:02, I'm a native English speaker, and you are not alone. I am a total grammar freak. Some of the comments here drive me crazy with the lack of punctuation, although I do understand that there are a lot of people commenting here from other countries and English is their second language. English isn't easy to learn as a first language, and I can't imagine learning it as a second language, so I commend you for that!
The optimist in me is thinking that partway through the episode Castle will tell Beckett that this is his last case with her, and that he wants to move on. This will prompt Beckett into fighting for him and hopefully she will do something loving to convince him to stay. (Near the end of the episode Castle may also get an ominous phone call from the mystery man, which will set the the tone for the finale.)The pessimist in me is thinking that both Castle & Beckett will suffer in silence and solve the case as usual. Before the end of the episode, the "Mr. Smith/Deep Throat" character will contact Castle and threaten Beckett's safety. Castle will decide to put aside his hurt feelings, and hang around to protect Beckett. If Martha asks him about his change of heart he will probably claim that as a writer he is simply interested in how events will play out.I want the optimistic scenario to play out, since I really want to see Beckett go the extra mile to win back Castle. Unfortunately, I think the second scenario is what will actually happen.
This has to be done in order to push beckett to the limit and force her to say the right words to the right guy (and not to Lanie or her therapist). It sure seems way harder for Castle, believe me, it's not easy to be in company of someone you love and that person feels embarrassed by this thought of yours.And Kate has never mentioned anything like that to Castle,so he is bound to think that the sole reason she lied to him was that she didn't feel the same way.She knows how emotional Castle is for women in her life who matters to him(take Alexis and Martha,for example).All that Kate thinks is everything is difficult for her and all the world's burden is on her shoulders, well that doesn't mean she can give a cold shoulder to castle. Well, Castle's life is also not an icing on the cake, his life had been hard too. But he manages to stay happy and make Kate enjoy life and smile. Only reason she got back to him after 3 months of her shooting was to get the files. He accepted it and was ready to wait for her.No wonder Castle didn't confronted her, he didn't wanted his already broken heart to suffer more. Every time its Castle who steps up and compromises and apologizes. This time its Kate who needs to confront Castle no matter what speak up to him.
ITA!!!!!If Beckett truly loves Castle, then she needs to be the one to put herself out there emotionally this time. She needs to get over the potential hurt that she may experience just like Castle has done in the past.
That's EXACTLY what I want to do!! Thanks, Anon 9:33, for making me laugh!
Well finally Rick has done something which makes sense to me after the mess of the last three episodes since he heard Kate's secret - he is leaving her!It made no sense to me that a man so in love for so long would just decide to hang around on some vague chance she might one day change her mind and love him. Why show up to see the woman you believe doesn't love you EVERY DAY and be tormented? It's just an emotional dagger to the heart for him and he can't continue.And didn't Nathan sell that scene when he made the comment to Perlmutter and he's staring so sadly at Kate as she walks around seemingly oblivious - Jesus he was good there - I felt so sorry for him, he is just so hurting right now but he's no longer angry at her, he's just very very sad that he can no longer carry on with the this farce anymore. They don't have a friendship and they're not lovers so what is there left for him? As for Kate and her reaction to his comment, she seems confused but not unfazed, does that mean he's already told her he's going or has he yet to do so?If he HAS already told her yet then I'm pretty upset that Kate is not showing more emotion here, she should be at least looked more pained when she looks at him - she's losing the guy she's meant to love! Although I don't understand if he tells her this is his last case why is he still with her in the finale - what stops him from leaving in this episode?You know the one thing I really want to happen before the end of this season, Kate to APOLOGISE - she never does, not once but Rick is constantly on the back foot saying sorry all the time to her. She hurt him terribly when she ran off for three months then came waltzing back into his life and she has kept from him the fact she heard the ILY and if she doesn't say a simple sorry for the hurt she caused him I will be willing Rick to walk off into the sunset and never see her again. Because this would not be a balanced relationship or healthy with one person always having to cave in.Rick can then apologise for his secret but Kate needs to do some serious work now in keeping her man, no more sitting on the fence asking people questions and doing nothing - she needs to act. You want this guy you need to show and tell him that you love him and want him around not just as partners. That's a total cop out if she says that to him.Guess we shall find out a lot more come Monday night.
Yes, I agree with you about Kate needing to apologize to Castle. She is well aware that Castle has been waiting for her to respond to his ILY for almost a year.I actually think something along those lines might happen in this episode. Castle seems determined to leave, so I think Kate will finally do something that gives him a reason to stay. I am certain that Kate won't disclose any feelings of love to Castle (the world would end before that happens most likely!) but the episode should end well since they are smiling and chatting away over coffee in the "Always" photos.
You're right, they do look awfully comfortable and chatty in the photos from "Always," even more than usual. You've given me hope that the next episode will end well!
Here's a guess. Alexis is told about Castle's choice of this being the last case. Alexis mindlessly lets it slip to Lanie, Alexis thinking her dad probably already told Beckett and then Beckett tell Lanie, but Lanie has no idea what she's talking about.Then Lanie comes to the rescue and talks to Castle telling him he's a idiot and that he should really think about if Beckett cares for him or not. LOL I love that.
I actually like this story arc at the moment. I think it will be even more emotional when Castle and Beckett finally admit their feelings after all this heartbreak we've been put through the past few episodes. The thing I really can't stand is Alexis. I used to love her, but her character has been written so horribly this season that I can't put up with her anymore. I realize that her "adult" conversation with Castle was only to reflect his decision to stop working with Kate. However, why not take a little break from deciding which ivy league school that your father's money is going to pay for, and thank him with a game of laser tag? It's not that much to ask. The look on Castle's face made me hate Alexis for putting it there. I'll admit I've been trying not to be biased against Alexis ever since I saw Molly at Paley Fest, but I can't help it. I just see to much Molly shining through Alexis, and it bothers me. Alexis has turned into a selfish spoiled brat, rather than the dedicated and adorable girl in season 1. I think it's pretty obvious she'll choose Standford to mirror Castle's situation with Beckett, but I'm not complaining. The farther Alexis moves away from Castle's loft, the happier I will be.
I was really sorry for Rick in that scene with his daughter, I mean he wanted to play laser tag with her what daughter would not be pleased her father wants to still have fun and enjoy his time with her before she leaves.And stop being so ungrateful girl, you have been shortlisted into how many ivy league places and you're still not happy!I really adore their relationship but Alexis' attitude has bugged me, have some pity for your father, he's going to lose you soon and he already thinks he's lost Kate.
Yes, Alexis was surprisingly cruel to Castle in that sneak peek. I was taken aback when I saw it. I like that the writers have tried to make the Alexis-subplots mirror the Castle-Beckett relationship, but I think by doing so they are changing Alexis' character too much. Her humility seems long gone at this point.
Yeah, you would think that a girl who thought she was going to lose her father in a bank robbery not so long ago she'd be a little more patient and downright thankful he is alive and kicking. You'll be rid of him soon enough, Alexis, put the damm paperwork down and give him 20 minutes of your precious time...you have the rest of your life to grow up!
Yeah, Alexis' behavior was particularly cruel. This is her dad who has been there for her since day one and clearly adores her. It seems like she isn't even taking the time to think about how he feels with all of this. One game of laser tag was not going to affect her being a college student.Anon 12:26 also makes a good point about how torn up Alexis was in Cops and Robbers over possibly losing her father and not even caring about his feelings right now.
I think people here forget what it's like to be her age or are not there yet. Alexis is growing up, she is not a kid anymore. She has changed and is still in the process of changing. In her mind she is now an adult. She is trying to figure out the next phase of her life, an important decision. She doesn't know what to do and here Castle comes to play. She is not at that stage anymore. The little girl we saw in season 1 has grown up. She doesn't mean to be cruel, she is just in that in between stage where she is young but on the verge of adulthood. Playing lazer tag is not cool anymore. She feels she is an adult and now has to act like one. It is a natural progression. She is not being mean, she is just growing up, so let's all let her.
Anon 1:36, you have a point that Alexis is growing up, and laser tag isn't cool to her anymore. However, I have to agree with everyone else that she is being selfish. She's never been a typical teenager, and it's never bothered her before that playing laser tag with your dad isn't "cool." Alexis has always been responsible and far more mature than her age, which is why the scenes when she let loose with her dad were such a great contrast for her character. Now she's all work and no play. I actually preferred her when she was in an annoying relationship with Ashley, because at least she had some fun and frivolity in her life. She's become too serious. She, of all people, should know that you are allowed to have some fun in life, even as an adult. She grew up with a man- child for a dad, for crying out loud! He was nothing but an amazing father to her, and he proved that it's okay to have fun. The least she can do for him is take some time to be there for him like he was for her. I really hope this episode ends with Alexis apologizing to Castle in the form of an epic game of laser tag.
I don't know what the finale will look like but I'm pretty sure that Marlowe won't dare call it "always" without a positive note at the end. I also think that it seems hard to me to get a "more fun" season 5 if their relationship is not good. I think they will be together. PatHyp
Yes PatHyp, I am holding on to my hope for the same reason. All of the past seasons ended in heartbreak of one kind or another, so I am hoping that the writers did something different this time.
I am not that surprised that he starts thinking about this being his last case. Clearly he is hurting, and despite what he told Martha, he is having trouble with turning off the switch. Its also clear that his distractions from Kate are not working, the blondes and Slaughter are not alleviating enough of his turmoil about being around her and being still involved.This setup really is perfect. Castle goes out with a bang on this final case, maybe he tells Kate early on or waits until the case is over. Regardless he leaves and that probably triggers Kate's comments from the promo about being being ready to move forward. She now has to be the one to confront Castle and basically fight for what she wants, and prove to him that she was worth waiting for. think of it as a role reversal from his fight with her at the end of 3x24 with the comments about being with men she doesn't love.Once he see's that she does love him, I think we could see this episode end with a Caskett moment, and lead into the finale, where the sneak peek photo of them smiling, coffee's in hand, suggests that they are back and better than ever, moving forward, only to have the sniper issue come up and force Rick's hand in revealing the murder board and his investigation. From there its all a roll of the dice as to how Kate will react and how they will end the season.
LOVE this idea. All of them are so spot on with what I would hope to see. If the writers are smart, they'll have written it this way. SO EXCITED!
I think that Rick's staying or not at the precinct will unfold in the last 7-8 minutes of this episode. But, I think that he will decide to leave, only to have the Smith character call him up again and remind Castle the terms which keep Beckett safe. Now, when the army vet dies and Beckett's shooter might have been the killer (I'm guessing the DNA from S04E01 finally got a match)... Smith will obviously come to know and find out that Beckett is in danger again. I can almost imagine him saying to Castle "You need to steer Beckett away". I have more theories ... but I am most fixed on this one.
I agree with you. I am sure that Mr. Smith will call Castle up in this episode and give him reason to worry about Beckett's safety. Castle will naturally feel guilty and decide to stay and protect Beckett.However, I really hope that Beckett herself gives Castle additional reason to stay. It bothers me that Castle is doing everything in his power to protect Kate while she has been keeping an emotional distance from him.
I will be really fed up if the only reason that Castle goes back to Kate is because of the threat to her life and that she does nothing AGAIN to try to get him to come back to her.If you're in love with a guy and he's about to walk out the door, you don't just stand there and say nada. You LOVE him so you do something, anything to give you both a chance.Kate just seems happy to sit on her hands and watch him work without doing a thing. I don't feel it looks good on her if it's Rick's decision to come back only because he was worried about her (again) and she's simply been sitting at her desk uselessly pining away like some princess locked in a tower.Kate please take the initiative for once and fight for this man! Don't let him do all the hard work as usual, what kind of love is that where one person does all the heavy lifting in a relationship?
according to arc,another scenerio castle will leave presinct at the end when the army vet get killed,that man will call castle that this case about beckett's mother so he will decide to share all info he got with beckett.His secrets will come out.i wrote the same things after i watched season four premier.Castle love seemed always one sided to me people always looked at to subtext to understand what kate is feeling and never gave a hint to castle.All she said she needed time to have a serious romantic relationship.yeah i agree with you beckett did nothing for this relationship.well we cant do anything they write they shoot we watch but we have the remote control :)
Actually I wanted to be spoiler-free in this ep too, but after my young mare got the prognosis that she never will be rideabel again, I couldn't hold me back, so I watched the sneak peeks...Too funny, the first one... Cant say more about it lolI got the feeling that that will be something like a cliffhanger... Anyone too??Emi - sry, I'm a bit confused at the moment...
I think that Marlowe has an awful lot of stuff to jam into the finale, so maybe we'll get a mini- cliffhanger at the end of this episode. Castle could get a call from Mr. Smith, or he and Beckett might start to talk about what's been happening between them. (wishful thinking, I know) I just wonder if the end of Undead Again is going to be a lead- in to Always.
My bet - Beckett's about to tell Castle she loves him too.Before she can, Castle tells her he's leaving the precinct for good. Then a whole three months of wanting to wring Castle's neck again!
yeah looks like Marlow style :))
Kate would have to tell him something though before the season ends, otherwise he wouldn't have any reason to come back.What I am curious about is whether Castle gets the Nikki Heat book deal extended...they still haven't mentioned that yet.
Can anyone link or post any good theories they've read from ppl who have seen these sneak peeks and has made some sense of it...? Especially in terms of how this sets up the Castle/Beckett dynamic for the season finale?
If Marlowe dares to place an interruption into any scene where Kate is about to tell Rick something important in this episode I will be seriously annoyed.I've had enough of subtext and eye sex and innuendo this season to last me ten lifetimes. I'm fed up with guessing what a characters might have said if only they had been allowed to carry on talking.I don't want any more cheap stalling tactics like this used again on Castle, it is getting OLD. Some fans think it's a joke well that's their right. Me? I just think it's lazy storytelling because you don't have the guts to finish the story properly and put it off.The first few times they did it I was okay with this trick but now it's just embarrassing and maddening.Have the guts to let your character speak!
I must not watch the sneak peeks,I must not watch the sneak peeks,I must not watch the sneak peeks,I must not watch the sneak peeks,I must not watch the sneak peeks.Ohh and why not? *Click on play* Damn! I did it again!
My thought process exactly. It's gonna be even harder to resist next week!
Well, we already know that their feelings for each other wont be reviled until in the finale, but if Castle is in the mind set that this is going to be his last case then i think that maybe at the end of the episode, as it doesn't look like he has told her he's leaving, that Mr Smith calls his a reminds him of the terms of Becketts safety, for him to be at the precinct. AM said that this episode is meant to set the tone for the finale.I aslo think that there will some kind of Caskett moment where he just realises, nope i cant leave her, i love her too much. Coz the look he gave her in sneak peek 4 was so sad, like her was watching her knowing it was his last time :'(The only thing is Beckett has to be careful if she rolls her eyes and tells him to stop coz that will just further convince him to move away.As for Alexis, that scene just broke my heart. She has grown up so much and now it looks like shes going to leave Castle behind.All i can say is I CANT FREAKIN WAIT 10 MORE DAYS FOR ALWAYS and this episode is going to be a funny one before we get all angsty-Carina
Something must cause him not to leave her be it Mr Smith or she actually finally fesses up!I don't think it will be the latter, I have a feeling that something will happen so Rick is concerned for her safety and so he changes his mind. We know they are on better terms because we've seen the photos of them smiling in the alleyway. So something happens either in this episode or first thing in the finale to bring them back together.But this latter option irritates me because once again Kate is doing NOTHING to facilitate their togetherness she just sits on her hands all woe is me and stays silent and just waits hoping he will come crawling back.I want that particular dance thanks Marlowe to stop and a new one commence! One that involved Kate deciding to dance to Rick's tune for a change if you get my drift.Come on girl make an effort, it's a two way street, he shouldn't have to be the one coming back all the time for her.
What we also need to keep in mind that Stana Katic said fans would feel 12+ on a scale of 1-10. Now, despite all these posts, the fact is she has been more forthcoming than most.
wow alexis was waaaaaay too cruel to her adorable father. i wish i could smack her for saying that to him and breaking his heart. She really couldn't just play with him for thirty minutes? wow
I think Undead Again will be a funny episode mixed in with a little drama. In the US Promo there was the line from Beckett where she says she is ready to come to terms with everything that happened that day (the day she was shot). Also, the voice-over guy mentioned about one chapter closing and another beginning. Therefore instead of being cynical like a lot of people (those who are already predicting that Andrew Marlowe will just deliberately keep Castle and Beckett apart for another season), I'm going to retain a positive outlook and be optimistic. Andrew Marlowe at Paley Fest said "it's 2012, people fall into bed". Nathan and Stana also at Paley Fest promised us a 12.9 out of 10 finish to the season (with their characters finally sealing the deal maybe?). Given these hints they gave us it wouldn't surprise me if Andrew Marlowe is the only one that cops the flack if the season finale doesn't live up to some people's expectations. I mean no one would dare criticize Stana for allegedly misleading them would they? OK, maybe I am being a little cynical by saying that lol.
I love the hi-five at the end of the 6th sneak peek.
Me too!!! I felt like that was redemption after sneak peeks 2-5.
I really hope that Castle don't leave the precint because Mr. Smith. IMO it would be something so obvious and confirms the low sparkleness of the scripts in season 4.
Zombies. This episode looks awesome. But theres a couple of things that really are starting to crawl under my skin.They're blatantly LYING! Everyone knows Castle isn't leaving and its honestly making me slightly annoyed that:A: they pulled this storylineB: he's acting like a complete an utter childC: He's STILL a giant hypocrite.I understand that we're getting somewhere absolutely huge, and I really really look forward to it but I'm starting to enjoy the jokes and negative stuff Castle's getting purely because he's pretty much taking a beating on all fronts and it getting fun to watch him squirm.I know he's down on his luck but seriously... Just Say Something!PS: Martha's little chat totally redeemed her for that horrible advice she gave him in 42seconds
I think that in this episode it'll leave with Castle going off to his beach house and then in the finale Beckett will go and confess her feelings alone... But that is more of what I want to see and not really what I expect to be shown to us XP
I've thought the same thing. It would be great for Beckett to go to him at his beach house. Again, it's what we want...not what we think will happen :(
I get that Castle's hurt right now, but how could he even think of leaving? Did he forget that he's supposed to be keeping Beckett off her Mom's case? By leaving her, he's basically signed her death certificate. Unless he plans to reveal all and leave her to her own devices... In which case, he probably should have trusted her in the first place by not keeping it from her.
I don't want to be negative but I agree with you. He's supposed to stay in the precint for Beckett's safe. Could someone explain this? in a possitive way ;)
Anon 5.55 PM, I'll try and keep it brief, but that's gonna be hard lol.Basically Roy Montgomery had a deal with the "Dragon" in which he wouldn't expose this person as long as his family and Detective Beckett were kept safe from harm. He sent Mr Smith that package when he realized he could no longer protect Kate and then sacrificed himself to keep her safe. Kate was shot during the time it took for the package to be delivered to Mr Smith (meaning the deal was off and the Dragon wanted Kate eliminated so she couldn't expose him). Roy also included a photo of Rick in that package because he knew he had found someone to protect Kate (in Rick) when the time came that he no longer could. That is why Mr Smith rang up Rick back in Rise and basically told him to steer Kate away from her mother's case. It is also why Rick begged Kate in Rise to give it time and honour the victim's families like she always has.In terms of the murder board in Rick's loft, he has that there because in Rise Kate told him that she couldn't have the kind of relationship that she wants until those behind her mother's murder are brought to justice. Rick obviously decided that to finally get a relationship with Kate he had to solve her mother's murder, and he's doing it behind her back because of the deal he has with Mr Smith. She's going to be pissed off with him when she finds out what's been going on, there's no doubt about that. It sounds like Jim Beckett could make an appearance in the finale. If he is there I hope it's after Rick's secret comes out that he appears. Then he could tell his daughter that he asked Rick in person to protect her when he said to him: "don't let her throw her life away". I think that piece of information will calm Kate right down and lead to her forgiving Rick for meddling in her mother's murder behind her back. Going to be very interesting these last two episodes!
yeah but, I think Rick must stay in the precinct just as a friend rather than leaving her unprotected. He cares about her. How could he thinks of leave the precinct knowing she'll going for "the dragon"? Is he so hurt? (sorry for my really bad english lol)
Why would he stay in the precinct as "just her friend"? The point of him wanting to leave is to get away from her, and his unrequited love.
If he leaves, she gets killed...no?
Yeah, so he's basically washing his hands of her. Unless he equips her with the truth.
Remember, as long as Kate isn't working on her mother's murder case or gathering evidence that could expose "the Dragon", she isn't in immediate danger.I don't think Castle forgot what Mr. Smith told him, but right now his being there is not making any difference as to whether Kate is safe.Kate said she would put her mother's case aside at the beginning of the season, and so far she hasn't worked on it, so she shouldn't be in danger if she continues this pattern of behavior. That's probably why Castle figures it's ok for him to leave the precinct. (His broken heart is a huge motivation as well!)However, if Kate were to suddenly start uncovering sensitive information related to "the Dragon" & her mother's murder, someone would probably try to kill her again. Castle knows this, and I am sure if he saw Kate heading down this path he would try to protect her.
Your English isn't that bad! Anyway, I think it's fair to say that Rick has become disillusioned since Kate revealed her secret without the knowledge he was watching from behind the glass in the observation room. This disillusionment is partly a result of the fact that Kate has been avoiding directly telling him how she feels since the gunshot. That is why he thinks she doesn't love him back. He has been going AWOL trying to find a way to relieve himself of the hurt he thinks she's caused him (flaunting the blonde bimbo, working with Slaughter), but was unaware that he was actually hurting Kate by doing it (until Martha said something to him about it) and clearly he hasn't been able to relieve himself of this hurt he thinks Kate's caused him. His anger has only ever been superficial, deep down he still loves her deeply, even if in his current state of mind he won't admit it. All it will take is for Kate to open up to him and he will very quickly calm down and realize how much of an ass he has been. He is only saying he will leave after this next case because of that disillusionment and it probably hasn't crossed his mind that she will be put in danger again if he does leave the Precinct. It's either going to be Kate says something to him that changes his mind and makes him stay, or Mr Smith calls him and reminds him of his obligation to stay by her side in the Precinct to keep the deal with the Dragon valid. I'm picking it will be the former that happens.Right now the ball is in Kate's court. She is the one who has to take the initiative and prove to Rick that she loves him back. Because of her "wall" she has struggled to find the confidence to talk openly about her deepest feelings (hence why she's never been able to have a solid relationship with any of the men in her life), so it was pretty much necessary for Rick to go AWOL to force her to come to terms with everything before she really does miss out on him for good. It would seem that this is the episode where she finally admits that she has come to terms with everything: her mother's murder, being shot and of course Rick's ILY. Like the voice-over guy said in the US promo, one chapter closes, another begins. Can't wait!
I'm hoping they kiss in undead again leading up to the finale... That would set the tone otherwise it's going to be a big leap from splitting up to be completely honest in their feelings... I hope they start the confrontation and end up kissing putting them on level ground prior to Always
I feel AM thinks fans are idiots. Till now they couldn't express their feelings like adults, but now they are ready to talk... Kate to somebody else and Rick to Martha? If they just confess each others feelings without a big bang, I am going to start an anti-castle campaign :( I invested so much of my time in this show and they treat us a pea-brains :(Their opinions change faster than I change the TV channels. In one episode they feel for each other so much that they are ready to get cuffed to the other for life and in other they don't even remember it happened.The writers are even repeating the dialogs. What can those poor people do? The creator is confused about what to do with his characters. You know what. I am done with this show. I started watching it because of the strong and brave female lead and for humor but got hooked on to the drama. I got a new show to follow with an ever more super female lead - Missing. Though the mystery part isn't great in Unforgettable, I think I can live with it for sometime. So, my fellow Caskett shippers, I will just watch this show for humor and mystery part and try to stay away from the drama part.p.s. Last week I rented 'For Lovers Only' and later found that Stana is not paid for that movie. I saw that movie only for Stana and was disappointed that she was not even paid for it.
RE: For Lovers Only, Stana agreed to do the film without any pay because it was a budget film and was not sponsored by any major networks/production houses. They weren't expecting to make any money from the film. But since the film made so much, she actually did get a cut of the profits :)
Geez, lighten up! We've been told things will be very positive. Even Stana told us we'd be happy.
Beckett's gotta move fast if this is Castle's "last case with Detective Beckett" (CTV Promo). I like how this is gonna be one of the straws that breaks Beckett's metephorical back.
