Ok. so. Parts of the finale felt like Castle filler episode, eh? But, personally loved the weeping Beckett scene at the end (what's wrong with me I don't know:) Please tell me you think that Bracken's "people" abducted Castle. Because duh, he didn't die, and poor Beckett for feeling that way for even 5 seconds after the life she has had, but which way do you think they are going to go with it? I think the episode was a red herring, and of course Bracken will try to get her until she kills him!

i am the worst one to theorize about things like this because there are so many people out there with a better grasp of — well, everything — than me. i keep seeing 3xk but i would be so exasperated because he’s already made castle appear as something other than what he is (granted, a murderer rather than dead, but been there done that). 

i’d *almost* feel cheated if this was the result of a good bracken scheme after the gorgeous closure they gave beckett in vertias (not that i want it to last forever, but, like, two eps would be fine). EXCPET, they entirely dropped the thread of who actually committed the murder from that ep in the first place, which i really don’t think the show has ever done before — whoever shot jason marks and tortured the badass formerly known as vulcan simmons is to our knowledge just traipsing merrily around out there, and at least if he/she/it/they were responsible for Beckett’s Great Wedding Bonfire the whole thing would seem less random.

or, idk. given becketts experiences with royce and montgomery and her general luck, i’m going to go ahead and be the (hopefully) first person to officially pin that whole last scene on Rogan.

So you like angst -- what did you think of the end of the finale?
- Anonymous

my biggest problem with the finale is that i am an absolute sucker for angst, so much so that i am almost as protective of the genre as i am of my favorite show. but you’ve got to give me something to which you’ve built — have beckett get shot at montgomery’s funeral; have 3xk plot to get castle arrested; have beckett get tortured by vulcan simmons. i myself am (shockingly) no detective and did not necessarily foresee these things, but all of them are events that were in hindsight reasonably foreshadowed.

OR (ideally and, but i’m not that picky), give me some kind of catharsis. sometimes real life rears its surprising, traumatizing head right up and smacks you in the face, and i can both appreciate and empathize with this, but i need go along with the characters and experience at least a tiny bit of that beautiful aristotelian purge of emotions.

except i just said catharsis and it’s not entirely true — what i actually want isn’t aristotle’s catharsis, it’s the word he replaces it with in poetics. i want rhaumaston, wonder in both senses of the word, i want all those worlds of possibility that angst can open. i love the pain; i adore castle shattering beckett’s world with a reluctant admission about her mother; i love beckett staring at castle’s back as he leaves her for the summer or watching him get led away in cuffs; i love all this because we spiral up or down with these people in their journeys and we get the wonder at their joy and their pain and i want to *feel* that but instead i just feel that i was so entirely robbed of that.
