    Maybe she'll hate the new job and come back...

    see that's the thing. she made up her mind that she wants to go, and he said he's good with whatever she wants to do, which i would think implies he'd go with her since, as you've stated, he can do his job anywhere, and his daughter's in college now. there really isn't anything tying him to NY.

    so that's what makes me expect that they'd move to DC.

    You're likely right, but it could serve to shake things up and make them fresher.

    Unforgettable did that when they came back this season. The two leads now work for a more specialized crime unit and the rest of the original cast is gone (except for Jane Curtin).

    But Castle isn't a canceled show...it's a solid performer that's been slowly but steadily building its audience for five years.

    They ain't gonna shake things up. At best, they'll pretend to shake things up a little just to shake things up, but without actually changing anything.

    I'm actually surprised they had the guts to have Castle and Beckett get together...of course you can't play that will-they-or-won't-they game forever, but pulling the trigger is, historically, a high-risk move. Gratifying, but I doubt they would significantly change the entire premise of the show.

    of course they could always make her reject him and then have parallel storylines in DC and NY... and then maybe kind of what Rob was thinking, she'll hate it, or miss him, and she'll move back. not sure how much i like that idea, but it would be in line with her character to reject him and go do what she wants to do. although it'd be a pretty crappy thing to do consider the dude was ready to die for her just a few weeks before hand!

    Maybe the simplest solution is for her to take the job, but they let her be based in New York. Maybe she could even be the police liaison so Ryan and Esposito will still be on the show frequently. Kind of lame, but sort of seems like the thing this show would do.

    I don't know that it's clear that she has made up her mind. I still maintain that when she was in the interview room at the end that she realized "this is my home" and was going to stay.
    See, I think that was a part of the reason Castle proposed, as a way of saying "Whatever you decide, I still want to be with you." I don't think that came across on screen as clearly as it could or should have, though.

    OK, google results seem to only mention the *un*cancellation.

    Was it cancelled again after S2? I still think it was nowhere near as good as when they were on the original police squad, but it was still entertaining..

    Was it cancelled or not?

    i thought that the conversation with her dad, where he asked "what do you want?" and she answered that she wanted the job, was the indication that she'd made up her mind.

    Now, of course, writers being writers, could have put that in as misdirection, but based on the evidence at hand, that was my conclusion.

    But that scene, if memory serves, preceded one in the interrogation room where she gave a bit of a monologue about that being her life and her home, and there was a look that she gave during that moment and that scene that, to me, seemed to show that as she was saying it, she was also really realizing it as well.

    hmm... forgot about that scene so went back to look at it. i can see why you say that, but she said "this room has been my life..." (emphasis mine), so that's probably why it didn't register too much for me. as for the look... heh, who knows with Becket what that look was... could have been acceptance that it's no longer going to be her home, that she doesn't want to leave, or... eh, i dunno.

    "I" think the only reason she is taking the job is to get the senator that killed her mother and after that she will come back to NY.

    That's good. :up:

    A couple of episodes separated... Then Castle goes down to help.

    I like it. :)

    She takes the job in Washington. Congress passes a new budget that cuts out funding for her new job and she is back in NYC.

    I am one of those people who didn't watch Firefly until this past year when they did the marathon. Loved the show. So I do enjoy seeing some things pop up in Castle. Only those that saw Firefly would knew what they are. His Halloween outfit was his old Firefly outfit.
