Fall TV Preview

Exclusive Castle Sneak Peek: Kate Responds to Rick's Marriage Proposal

Castle Season 6 Beckett Marriage ProposalWill it be yes… no… or maybe? Or flailing?

ABC’s Castle closed Season 5 with Rick popping the question to Kate, and TVLine has your first peek at his lady love’s reaction.

As this new promo reminds, fans have waited five years for a moment like this — but as Nathan Fillion told TVLine during our visit to the set this month, the show’s creatives “have been very artful” in their crafting of this workplace romance.

And while Rick’s proposal was a bit lacking in the oozing-with-romance department — coming as it did in the wake of the drama surrounding Beckett’s professional dilemma — Stana Katic assured me with a smile, “They’ll address that in the premiere,” which airs Monday, Sept. 23.

Press PLAY (…as if you haven’t already) for a preview of Kate’s response, then hit the Comments with your theories on what it is she has to tell him first.

  • OMG… MAJOR BREAK DOWN OVER HERE

    • Same here! Watching it over and over again. But it’s so typical reaction. I love this show because it’s never out of character. Thank you, Andrew!

      • It is definitely not out of character, Queen Kate is kicking Castle in the gonads again. It would really be nice if Castle would at least once, tell the Queen to stuff it!

        • Because he really likes to be told to lift up her top and pull off her boots. The lady he fell in love with is really good at bossing men around. Kate, Meredith, Gina, Ellie and her water pistol, clearly he doesn’t like submissive women. That’s the character.

          • Well, he let her lead and look where she drove them, to a nearly break up (of course Marlowe would not go that route) so I think we maybe see a little shift in that regard.

          • I know one thing, if a woman to whom I had just proposed hopped up and screamed, “Oh my God, you’re proposing” and then began spitting and sputtering like Beckett, I would take my ring and go home. Looks like we are destined to the b I t c h getting away with murder again.

            Comment by Ralph – August 29, 2013 01:20 PM PDT  
          • Give her a break! She thought he was breaking up with her. She was surprised! Then she takes his hands to tell him whatever. (I think we assume that is that she is taking the job in DC), for Beckettt, honesty is a step forward. With Castle and Beckett it is always a matter of nervous breakthroughs. They have to reach a crisis point to talk to each other. It will be truth time and then things can go wherever they will go in the time jump. I think that it will be a learning experience, especially fo Beckett. We already know where Castle’s heart lies. He has walked through fire and risked being blown up to prove it, even if Beckett was not quite convinced. Now Beckett will actually have to learn where her heart lies. Rachel McCord should help with that. There is a real opportunity for growth. Painful as that may be, it is a good thing and interesting storytelling.

        • Hi Ralph and Sally. There you are. Hope you had a good summer. Will watch for comments. Reruns getting a little tired of. Can’t wait for Sept.23.

        • The Captain (who died for Kate and who knew how Castle made her something she could not be on her own) was right in the end. Castle has saved her life; broken codes; solved puzzles; and watched her with eye-candy on her arm after he delivered her coffee.

          FBI and CIA also recognized Castle as legit (and he has powers that he is not expected to have).

          Let us see a realistic–and in character–portrayal of Beckett’s success without Castle to put together or pick up the pieces. She would have been dead long ago….

      • and don’t forget the castle “breakdown” when he pushes beckett into the closet — what was he afraid of and why did beckett let him?? Martha would have been delighted and castle should have put his arm around beckett and shown his mom how happy he was — still don’t get this scene!

        but she will say yes to his proposal and they will struggle thru a whole year of engagement problems.

        • No matter how old or “mature” many people become, sex is still a subject many don’t feel comfortable discussing with their parents…let alone being caught in the aftermath. Romance is one discussion between kids and their folks; the physical side is quite another.

    • I think she reveals she’s really a “he” (tranny), and Castle has to make the biggest decision of his life…
      Sorry, no knock on Stana, just the overly dramatic reading by the voice over.

    • Yeah, count me in with ya in that breakdown dept. LOL. I totally forgot about “Under the Dome” when watching last night’s repeat ep because I had a strong feeling a new promo would air somewhere during that hour (less than a month to go to the premiere). Whoa.

      • Yes good people do turn down proposas all of the time and when the proposal is turned down, it is time for the man to get the h*ll out of there. I wish they would ship Beckett to DC and find a new love for Castle.

        • Good idea. Leave Beckett to her own emotional and dangerous ways, often resulting in the death of others and leaving Castle in danger.

          Give Castle someone who respects his quite unusual bag of tricks and possible alignement with power and who loves him back.

          • That’s the only fair way. Of course Marlowe was never one to consider fairness.

            Comment by Tom Benson – September 21, 2013 10:54 AM PDT  
      • On second thought, She will accept the Washington job and as tweeted several days ago, Castle and Beckett will be seeing far less of each other this season which puts the non-committal Beckett in a few new relationships in D.C. and Castle will find a new love interest in New York and that makes their relationship OVER. Castle will do just fine and Beckett will slowly fade away.

        Comment by Carl Nesbitt – September 15, 2013 09:14 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Yes–and I want to have my pound of flesh. You don’t get jobs beyond your ability; be glorified in the press; and think yourself a one-woman show without a fall. This is hubris that, is we saw it in a man, we would hate. Montgomery died for her; Castle dies day after day (that was an exaggeration, but you get it); and she endagers anyone around her. Becket is not as sharp as Castle.

    • I for one am thrilled that Kate accepted the proposal, but I hate that she took the job. Part of what makes Castle so good is the whole ensemble cast, and now Ryan and Espo are in the background. I don’t like the people in DC and was extremely disappointed in the season premiere, minus the first 2 minutes. Why do they take a good thing and ruin it?

      Comment by Donna – September 24, 2013 06:09 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I don’t think they ruined it, it makes it more exciting. I still love them both and I think personally that they both needed the distance. You know what they say, distance makes the heart grow fonder. I think they will appreciated each other more like this and I know she will go back to NY. They have worked so close to each other for the last 5 years that I don’t think this thing with DC will hurt their relationship but make it stronger.

          • I know that saying too. You know Castle will find a way to be with her, he already showed his not listening skills on the premiere show so knowing him, he will find a way to get in the middle of all of her cases down there in Washington DC.

            Comment by Daniela – September 24, 2013 11:11 AM PDT  
          • That’s how they will get the show back to NY, the Feds will kick both of them back:-)).

            Comment by Tom Benson – September 24, 2013 02:33 PM PDT  
      • I agree. The parts between Castle and Beckett were great, but it didn’t feel like the old Castle. I’m sure that Marlowe knows that many feel the same way. The faster he gets them back to NY, the better the show will be.

    • If oh Lord, means not another teaser I agree. If the answers is not yes, then Castle should run not walk away from her now! What else does she want? He has stuck with her through everything, he is willing to die for her, he has changed his life to be with her, she is in love with him. If the answer is no then the problem is Kate is a self centered person.

      • mate you’ve only seen a very short sneak peek at the new episode. dont go making assumptions and judgements based off of that. i cant see beckett saying no because if she did that’d be another season of castle dealing with becketts rejection. i can see her saying yes to the proposal and yes to dc.

      • Beckett-haterz gonna hate. No need to read into it that she’s a terrible person leading up to this or might be if she says no. Good people turn down proposals all the time–there are amazing real life stories were someone gets turned down more than once and they end up getting married and having a great life together. Why you turn a wonderful guy down can be perfectly valid and not be a character flaw on your part. Seriously, though, nothing about that implied a no (as in an ‘I don’t want to marry you now or ever’ no) and you really think they’re gonna not make it look like it could go either way for the sake of getting fans revved up for the new season? Do you know anything about cliffhangers, specifically those involving proposals? As for the character arc of it all, you can love someone, want to marry them, and have there be drama in how that all comes about. It doesn’t get smooth just because someone puts their life on the line for you. That affects emotions, not logistics.

        • The last episodes where Kate based, the show is at it’s best when it is Castle centered, such as “Hunt and “Target” last season. I realize the answer is going to be “yes”, but if there is a condition tied to it, then it revolves around the same stuff of the last episodes. The show is at it’s best when its about him and her. The Castle of the first several season’s has been disappearing. in “Always” he stood his ground and made a stand. If the “yes” is condition based, then he should take a stand, and step back. As a Castle Fan what is being ignored is that she needs him! Most of their cases gets solved as a team, Beckett going to DC sounds great, but she got to DC because of him. It’s not about Kate hate,I like the character, I just want the show back to where it was, and even better, it needs everyone but the center is Castle.

          • if the focus of the show hadn’t shifted to Beckett the show would have been cancelled three seasons ago. Castle is not very interesting as a character.

          • Um . . . actually, Liz, mileage varies on that.

            Personally, I find Becket boring and self-centered, and Castle fun.

            Comment by Mari – August 26, 2013 06:41 PM PDT  
          • Castle’s Jokes are for fools, you can think he is funny but at the end of the day he is a big whining baby and super annoying..and people tend to get tired of that kind of behavior of grown old man.

            Comment by Liz – August 26, 2013 06:46 PM PDT  
          • Yes, they probably do–but they also get tired of characters that are as condemning and self-absorbed as Becket is.

            Personally, I find myself not watching those episodes that center around Beckett, simply because it’s most likely going to turn into another episode where we have to learn how traumatized Beckett is because her mother died almost 20 years ago and that’s why she can never ever ever trust people.

            Dull.

            Like I said–people find different things interesting.

            Comment by Mari – August 26, 2013 06:59 PM PDT  
          • Why don’t you stop watching the show..it would be easier..Kate’s character is complicated and a challenge..and her story is beautiful and painful…Hope you don’t have to deal ever with a violent death of one of your parents ..then I will point a finger at you for being self center and have a lot of problems to deal with it.

            Comment by Jay – August 26, 2013 07:12 PM PDT  
          • Actually, Mike, my mother died two years ago in my living room. It was very painful–for both of us. So, thanks.

            As for Beckett, she is a fictional character that I have enjoyed less and less as the series progressed and while I don’t find her particularly complicated, I can understand why people do find her fascinating.

            What I was trying to point out is that we all find different things about the show interesting–and it is entirely possible that while viewers have been gained by focusing on Beckett, it’s also possible you’ve lost a few.

            Comment by Mari – August 26, 2013 07:23 PM PDT  
          • Beckett’s fans are young women.. just what the ratings need…So yeah since season 3 (more focus on Kate) the show has been doing great in the ratings.

          • Castle is there because of Kate- he loves her. She is his inspiration and his reason to write . Kate is there because of Castle! He is her rock. Her sidekick. Her partner And she loves and needs him. Without Kate, there is no Castle! No series! And it is a series! Not reality. Kate character is not a bitch- Castle character is not into domination.( ! ). They are just two characters in an excellent unmissable brilliant will not miss fabulous series based on a Great series of Books! Don’t examine it! WATCH IT !

            Comment by Sandie – September 1, 2013 06:35 PM PDT  
          • “She loves and needs him”???? What series are you watching? How many times in five years has Kate said “I love you to Rick? How many times has Kate said “I really like him; you; I like you even more now.” She has told Rick she loved him, once!!!

            How many times has Kate said, “It’s my life, not yours, or my life is not your personal jungle jim; this is my life this is not about you!” That sounds like she really loves and needs Rick.
            Sorry your comment about Beckett does not hold water because there are so many holes in it!

            Kate is incapable of loving anyone but her dad and herself big time! Her character changed at the end of season one and has been developed by Stana and these writers as continually becoming more and more selfish, self-centered, needing only those people who can get her where she wants to be, lawman number one and that was not a mistake, she has lost her femininity and became more hard and course. Maybe Stana’s lesbian dyke role in that porn movie she did called ‘feast of lust’ is surfacing in her character of Beckett.

            Many of those who do comment on this sight and get incensed when Kate is not showered with adoration and praise, save that for Stana’s talent. The character of Beckett has been purposely made and developed into a very disliked (hated) individual among many of the faithful followers of this series. Yes it is fictional, yes the actors are not like their characters
            very far from it, many of the characters are more likable then the actors who portray them.
            But in the eternal scheme of all things none of this means anything and has absolutely no effect on the end of time. I don’t think GOD will ask any of us if we were for or against Beckett as a character on Castle. So you can praise and support the Beckett character, that is your right to express your opinion. At the same time, please allow those of us who disagree to express our opinion and our criticism of the actors and the writers who took an open warm caring character in season one and made her a hard cold selfish shrew in the next 4 seasons.

            Comment by R L Reagle – September 1, 2013 07:57 PM PDT  
        • Mike is right! When Kate says no, then Castle should really consider the consequences. I really like Kate and Rick together, waited long enough to see them as a couple, but enough is enough!

      • So Castle shouldn’t at least try to get the timing right? Instead of being so uncomfortable with managing his own emotions, and catastrophizing what’s clearly just a bump in the road, that he has to do something completely over the top to deal with it?

        Don’t get me wrong, I like where the writers have taken it. All that behavior is TOTALLY in his character. It feels completely authentic to him. But don’t you think he’s being a bit of a selfish person to put her in this situation?

        BUT, that doesn’t mean his behavior is in the right. That Kate should automatically say, “yes,” and disregard the method of the proposal, or the timing. That she shouldn’t wonder whether he’s only doing it in a desperate bid to hold on to her, and if she can even trust it. That’s the sort of character she is! And I think she would completely have a point to feel that way. :P

        • THANK you. This, exactly. The writing for the last handful of episodes last year was just – odd. Even giving them the benefit of the doubt for all resulting weirdness over the switched order of the episodes, it just made no sense. The proposal had all the joy of an execution. It was just a long series of misfires. Hope they can dig it out, I really do – I enjoy this show.

          • I agree about the last episodes, in ‘Still’, if it had been shown in the correct chronological order, the last three made no sense and with very little plot. In ‘Still’, is the first time Kate said, “Rick I love you!” It has always been ‘like’ from her mouth before. So if she truly loves Rick, why all the questions about where the relationship is going? In ‘Still’ again she told Rick, “we are just getting started”. Then the writers went nuts, she turned on him almost immediately, questioning him, questioning herself, then allowing a rich bore get that close to kiss her? Her complete selfishness comes out in “Watershed”, again its Beckett saying “its my life”, to which Rick had every right to ask “what about our relationship?” Is Rick not a major part of ‘her life’? These writers have made her so selfish so self centered since season 3. She’s toyed with Rick, teased Rick, shoved Rick away, but always letting him back close enough that she can do it again.

            A strong hard nosed female detective is how she is described in the pilot, but never have they said she is a self centered, selfish controlling shrew which is just what they have made her. In my opinion the writers had no clue with what or how to end the season. But ABC knew that Beckett was ratings gold so season 6 is the pilot and beginning of the series, ‘Agent Beckett – super Fed’ or something similar to that.

            Castle the series is dead as far as ABC is concerned. Yeah they are bringing in a lot of guest stars for season 6 but all of them have their own shows especially the female guests who are to woo Rick, he’ll kill of Nikki in his book and that will be the end of the relationship between him and Beckett then what will probably transpire is Rick will run off with one of those guest females at the end of seasosn 6 leaving Stana with her own show which I will not watch because of who and what Stana is as a person. That two season extension teaser dropped by the media after the end of season 5, is really going to be season 2 of Beckett’s series to which ABC is already committed. She’ll get a season and a half to make it go then everyone will be cancelled because ABC and these writers haven’t a clue how to keep a good show on their network. They have proven it before.

      • Have you even watched the show? Castle if far more self centered than Beckett & it isn’t even close. She has to protect her future. Look at Castle’s track record with marriage. She’s supposed to give up everything she wants just to be with him? She could look at it as if he’s proposing just to keep her in New York. If he truly loves her, he’ll be able to share her with Washington DC.

        • Many of you are either destroying Beckett or Castle.
          My goodness! Stop being so hatefull! If any of you don’t like the way the series is going-stop watching!
          These are characters. We like them and most of the time we ( fans) like where the writer take the characters.
          Sometimes the story line gets on our nerves a little.

          Try to just cool it or cool down and see where they take us.

          I don’t want to sound like everyone doesn’t have a right to say what on their mind but many of you have torn either castle or beckett apart in these comments.

          Lets just see where the writer will take them this season.
          Thanks for the opportunity to voice an opinion.

          • You are telling me, they are so negative all the time. Maybe they shouldn’t be watching the show any more. Everybody has their opinion but it gets tiring if they keep putting either Castle or Beckett down.

          • Shirley, you have posted the most sensible take on Castle and Beckett of any I have read. Even though the last two episodes of season 5 weren’t what most fans expected it still stands to reason that Castle and Beckett (Their characters) have a unique chemistry that give the show some POP. The entire cast is part of that chemistry and for the most part that’s what makes it work so well. The characters must be doing something right to evoke such a broad spectrum of emotions from the fans that follow the show. Personally, I think Castle and Beckett are the perfect partners and each being totally independent people that’s what makes them bond to each other. It may not be in a traditional way but that’s what makes it so good. They are true soulmates and if that is lost the show won’t survive……Just sayin’

          • Carl, everything you said was true up until the last three episodes last season when Marlowe lost his mind. If those episodes are the direction in which Marlowe is taking the show then I want out. The problem is that we don’t know which Marlowe we will see in 6.01 and beyond. While I remain hopeful, every indication is that Marlowe is going in a direction opposite what most of his viewers desire. A good indication of this is even staunch supporters of Marlowe often put a form of disclaimer in their posts which say I love the series but the last three episodes bothered me or the last three episodes were not what I expected.

            Marlowe has a grandiose scheme in mind, I just don’t think it is what the majority of the fans want.

          • That point will be when Beckett ‘confesses’ to Castle that she has already taken the Fed job. At that point we can all find a new show to watch.

          • I watched this series for 3-12 yrs before I realized there was a legitimate castle-beckett romance. since I considered them completely ill-suited; then I thot beckett was in love with his books not him, and that seemed plausible too. Seems to me castle wants something he feels is out of bounds for him (being the spoiled egotistical man he is) and beckett is completely passive aggressive, deliberately sabotaging her romantic relationships in some way. I think they will get engaged and spend a hectic year working thru the changed relationship. I read Nathan probably wouldn’t want to continue past 7th year when a marriage could occur leaving series on a happy note . BTW, who does get married in season 6 — anybody?

      • You hit the nail on the head Mike. What a reply to a proposal, “Oh my God, you’re proposing” At that point Castle should have turned around and walked away.

          • Of course not. If the show can get back to its original setting with them being engaged, that
            would be great. If Beckett has already taken the job without discussing it with Castle, that won’t be so great.

            Comment by Tom Benson – September 19, 2013 04:14 PM PDT  
          • I am pretty sure I wouldn’t. My linchpin is whether she has already accepted the job or if she is going to tell Castle that they need to discuss the job offer.

      • We’re all self-centered, in many ways. Some people – both men and women – will do almost anything to avoid the risk of being emotionally hurt, even if it means rejecting the potential for joy. That’s what happens when you let fear rule your life.

    • I predict that Beckett goes this season. The train has left the station! Two attractive and smart adults who have lived through near-death expeeriences together, traveled together, etc. and they don’t know what’s up yet? Too much time has passed to comfortably have these two marry and consummate. It would be unseemly after all this time–they are like relatives.

      Rick will hold the show together and–after we find out something about his father and what makes him such a good shot–he will have a real chance at true love.

      Perhaps a young college professor he meets through Alexis?

  • I didn’t think they’d go the comedy route with that, especially since we already know the answer.

    Comment by Badpenny – August 26, 2013 04:17 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • We think we do (and let’s face it, we probably do) but regardless, shows shoot multiple scenes to cover their tracks. We don’t know that they didn’t. Can’t wait to see the decompressing part where the issue of the proposal non-romance comes up. As for the comedy part, I get where you’re coming from, but there are requirements for the overall tone that make it make sense. This is a comedy-drama. Castle’s a witty guy, banter’s a thing with them, and it makes less sense to go heavy with this proposal than on another show. If they can manage to bring comedy into this and make it work, it’ll just be perfect.

      • We have the pics, we have Molly’s comments, we have the audition tape from the guy who plays Alexis’ new bf. They all indicate the answer Beckett gives. This isn’t some huge secret or giant misdirect.
        .
        I just didn’t care for the humor in the scene. We have an incredibly unromantic proposal that was sad and forlorned followed by a humorous response. It just doesn’t sit well with me; but that’s why I’m me. :)

        • It wasn’t a set up for a knock knock joke. I don’t think this is as much comedy as you do, but we need to remember we haven’t seen this in context. He said something that took her aback and she got flustered. She also thought for a second that he was about to break up with her so there’s some relief and confusion here. Humor might be used to relieve tension but the conversation could still be serious.

          • It won’t be as serious as it should be, because Castle should take the ring back, put it in his pocket and go find a woman who will appreciate both the ring, and Castle!

            Comment by Ralph – August 30, 2013 02:48 PM PDT  
        • @Badpenny, re: the humorous turn –
          As much as I love the show and root for it in the TV sphere, I feel like this is one of its most aggravating flaws. I can take the deliberate camp and force-fed meta references, but the dizzying turns from drama to comedy drive me mad sometimes.
          .
          I understand the show has always waded in the “dramedy” waters, and sometimes spends whole episodes on either end of the spectrum. And I know we don’t have proper context for this comedic moment since that first 6×01 scene has clearly been hacked to bits.
          .
          But I’m really not crazy about this promo either, though I appreciate that they likely released it in response to those who didn’t like the other one. (I thought the first one served its purpose: Hook more young viewers into a show that already attracts plenty of young viewers.)
          .
          It will be interesting to see what else is released to promote the premiere.

    Besides, most people are pretty much aware of her answers anyway from all the leaks which are more than likely deliberate as a form of damage control.

    • I agree, add to that the abysmal attitude of Fillion and it’s hard imagine anyone wanting to watch this anymore. I’m sill dumbfounded people want to. I don’t think I’ve heard one rational explanation yet on why. Oh well. At least he was actually there on set for a day to give the interview to tv line! How embarresing if they came for an on set visit on one of his many days off.

          • Who cares, really? Nathan wanting a change to his contract isn’t any different then any other stars wanting changes to their contracts. The entire cast of ER did a hold-out to get their contracts changes – all except George Clooney who kept his original contract but left the show when it was up. The entire cast of Modern Family did a hold-out last year to get raises. The writers when on strange to get a bigger piece of the pie. This is just the way things are done in Hollywood. I’m not sure why Nathan deserves more anger then anyone else who’s done it over the years.

          • Bad penny, it’s not letting me reply to u directly but it’s entirely different what we did. He don’t band together with his other cast or crew in an effort to improve things for everyone, like other h

            Comment by Concerned – August 26, 2013 05:32 PM PDT  
          • He’s under no obligation to raise the pay of the entire cast and crew. He’s the titular character of the show and so much of the burden is on him in terms of hours and plot. He’s not a terrible person for either wanting more of a break or to be compensated for the toll it takes when he has to work those longer hours. I bet everybody who isn’t Stana (because she’s in most of the scenes he’s in) gets days off, particularly Susan, Molly, Penny, and Tamara. They don’t need another day off, and the crew gets paid by the hour so they want to work. Look at the credits and we’ll see if he got a producer credit or something. I think Lauren Graham got one on Gilmore Girls eventually. If he didn’t, there was additional money or occasional time off which he probably deserves.

        • Badpenny, it’ won’t let me respond to you directly but it’s entirely different what he did as opposed to other shows. He didnt band together with his other cast in a one for all manner like other shows. He just left everyone in the dust. Nor did he do something that will benefit everyone, like te writers strike. It came off as a very privledged, lazy move that left a bad taste in many people’s mouths. At least when casts try and get more money they are still working hard! It’s like I’m sure he got a typical raise season to season. So he’s just not going to show up for work and leave all those dozens (hundreds?) of people in the lurch because he’s tired of working?! Bet he likes collecting those fat checks though. I mean look. I’m a teacher, how would it look if I just left my students without a teacher and didnt show up on a Friday because I want a 4 day work week? I’d be fired obviously! Please explain to me why it’s different for him.

            Comment by Concerned – August 26, 2013 05:40 PM PDT  
          • You are confused on how working on a TV show differs from working in a office. There are days when an actor might show up and shoot 1 scene and then go home. They’re not always there all day just sitting around while others do their work. They get a call sheet for the days they’re supposed to be on set. There’s no reason for Nathan, Jon, Seamus, Penny, Molly, or Susan to be on set when they’re shooting Stana scenes of her in DC with a new team. There’s no reason for Stana to be on set the days Nathan, Jon, and Seamus are doing a scene involving their cases. Molly and Susan probably only come to the set 1 day out of 8, shoot their scenes, and are gone hoping they’re in the next episode so they get paid to come back.
            .
            Nathan wanting to work 4 days is a scheduling issue, not a shut down issue. If you’ve ever worked on a TV show you’d understand that there’s no reason to sit around for 4 hours just to shoot a 10 minute scene. You can block the scene for the next day and just do an extra scene then. It’s about scheduling things in ways that make sense rather then just having someone sit around for hours to say his lines 3 times into different cameras and then go home.

          • Badpenny, I think you an I just have a very different understanding of basic human work ethic. I don’t think it should be considered a “TV” or acting thing that this is allowed to happen. I can’t in good conscious watch a show where that’s allowed. But ill just leave it at that.

            .
            I think your social structure is a little too regimented. For example, I work 3 days a week but get paid for 5. It doesn’t matter what 3 days I come in; as long as I’m there 3 days I’m considered fully employed and being productive. I don’t think you could handle working in such an environment. You’d probably say I have no basic work ethics. You’d be wrong. :)

          • My comment was directed at Concerned… I agree with Badpenny. Jobs vary widely in terms of scheduling and time demands, and if you can get some flexibility, why not? It’s not a big deal to me, and more importantly doesn’t seem to be a big deal to the people actually working on the show, so I don’t understand why some fans are taking it so personally.

            Comment by Dena – August 27, 2013 12:03 AM PDT  
          • Are u joking?? Nathan didn’t bond with other cast members? Have u ever check their twitter and the photos people post on tumblr, or other social sites? He appear in Jon’s music video, and they made fun videos together and post it on utube; Seamus post pics on his twitter account that he and Nathan spent time together after work with their friends;Fans saw Nathan and Susan went out for lunch together several times; Molly did stage acts with Nathan; and have you read about Penny’s joke that she and Nathan pretend to kiss when they were filming Still? They are friends, and they bond well.

            I’m not a Nathan fanboy, but I found the recent bashing towards Nathan is non-sense, just like those bashing to Molly or Stana.

      • Dumbfounded, really? I have my issues with last season but I still like the show as a whole. So why wouldn’t I want to still watch it? I’m actually one of those people who liked the seriousness of the proposal and the realistic portrayal of an adult relationship. Yes they are disfunctional and I think they overdid showing that in the last few episodes, but overall I still enjoyed it. So of course I’m going to still watch it. You’re free to disagree and I actually do understand that, but I have no idea why that would leave you dumbfounded. People still want to watch the show becase they still enjoy it. And I don’t know what really happed with Fillon and his contract holdout- we only get what we read on the Internet so we’ll never know that whole story. I’m not going to use that as a reason not to watch.

Work ethics are not what we should be commenting on right now. The comments really need to be about the show and therefore, for what it’s worth, I think the promo shows us a typical Castle and Beckett situation

          Their relationship is and always has been, complicated and as such should never really conform to the normal pulp romatic fiction dynamic, because THAT is what makes THEM and the SHOW so good to watch.

        Oh, and it´s hard imagine anyone wanting to watch the show?! Let me tell you some of the people that will: Me, my husband, my parents, my sisters, my brothers in law, the majority of my friends (and the ones that won´t that´s because they weren´t watching before, not because the noni issue that concerns you so much), and if you read the posts here you´ll find a lot more! I suppose you´ll be “dumfounded” for some time:) The fact that a lot of people enjoy the show isn´t a “rational explanation” enough?! And apparently you are good friends with ABC, because you spent the days on the set (otherwise how would you know the days NF isn´t there?!)…

Look, we will always have opposite opinions, and that is ok and normal; It just bothers me that you accuse people who don´t agree with you of having less “dignity” or “no basic ettic work”. Like someone said, acting isn´t a 9 to 5 work, and I know that because I have a person in my family that works in transports and sometimes they go pick actors at home to get them to the set and back home when they finish shooting and you have no idea the odd hours they go to work and how late into the night they sometimes leave (I´m not american, so I don´t if it works like that in there).
            So, bottom line, let´s agree to disagree and leave things that way:)

  • I think she will tell him about the job offer and he will then tell her it doesn’t matter. He knows what he wants and it’s her. We will then get the more romantic side of the proposal (as SK hinted) and it will end with a ‘yes’. No doubt.

    • I agree, by proposing all Castle did is reaffirm to Kate that she can get away with treating him like crap.

      The Castle we seen in the first few seasons would never allow himself to be treated that poorly, I know he loves the girl but he needs to grow a set of balls instead of being so damn beta.

      No doubt when she says yes but they aren’t able to make it work in DC it will all turn out to be Castle’s fault…

      • He’s not being treated poorly, and in some cases post-ILY secret reveal, he was pretty passive aggressive to her instead of dealing with it. How’s that not poor treatment? I swear, sometimes people watch Castle with their ‘Nathan Fillion is my captain’ rose-colored glasses. She’s an alpha, she has issues that are character-based and make total sense, she goes to therapy trying to work on herself, and she doesn’t have to make perfect decisions every time. He didn’t. He gets told not to dig around in her mother’s case and he does it anyway. Capt. Montgomery (and some other people) might still be alive if Castle hadn’t started everything up again. Do I blame him for doing something necessary to make her a stronger and more whole person? No, and I don’t resent the show. Why is he not a real man for being beta so often? Martha, Alexis, Beckett, Lanie, and Capt. Gates all put him in that position. He seems to thrive in it and in Beckett’s case finds it sexy.

          • I too did not like the last three episodes. To me it was out of character. After throwing the perfect birthday for Castle she then screws up with Vaughn, lies about the interview and now wants to leave him for a job in DC. Did she really spend all of season four with Dr Burke to be better for Castle to throw it away in a matter of two months? Relationships that last all go through their ups and downs. What her actions told me was she could not be counted on to weather the storm. Her whole point with Vaughn had been Castle hadn’t been giving her the right amount of attention so she let a renowned womanizer like Eric Vaughn entice her. Would you really want to marry someone that so easily moves on?

          • Gee LIz, you must just watch the parts of the show which agree with your prejudices. Did you watch 5.21,5.23 5.24? If so write a little summary as to why Beckett shouldn’t be skewered!!!

            Comment by Ralph – August 30, 2013 02:44 PM PDT  
        • Oh, wow, we’re playing that game, are we? Beckett has been treating Castle wrongly. She was offended that Castle was angry that she didn’t think the D.C. offer would effect him. From ‘Still’ on, the episodes have ruined the show for me. The show is Called Castle, not Beckett. I very much dislike that people talk as if this show is named Beckett. If Castle grew a back bone, Beckett wouldn’t get to boss him around and treat him like a child or get away with crap. It takes two in a relationship and Beckett comes off like she is completely the boss and that everyone else has to deal with it. Yes, she has issues, but we’ve gone through, like, 3 seasons of delving into her story and we barley know Castle. That is a big problem. And if you disagree, then I know which Team you side with.

          • Point 1. This show is on ABC = All About Chicks. Castle is designed to be the “ever spineless” male who women just love….for a short period of time that is. He is the “perfect” example of the true “Beta” as someone else wrote.

            Point 2. The “Beckett” character lives by one and only one motto…”My way or the highway.” This whole supposed relationship is just one more fling on her way to total “self-realiztion”. Even if she says yes it won’t last as Castle is for sure going to do something that is NOT on HER list of OK relationship thingeeeesssss. To put in it simple terms…you either fit MY image of the perfect man or I’ll move on.

            Point 3. I have no intention of not watching the show. I am waiting for another episode like the last one of season two when Gina walked in. If Beckett does not have her “fool” to toy with just how is she going to save the show and Mr. “M”s arse?

            Point 4. Beckett, please do us all a huge favor and just say no. That way I can get control of the channel changer at 9:00 on Monday night.

            Just a thought

          • Um… Fogel, you’re right that ABC is geared toward female viewers and has primarily female lead characters. But the male characters on ABC, while they may not always drive the story, are still powerful, effective and worthy of rooting for, whether that is Nolan on Revenge, Charming on OUAT, Huck on Scandal or McDreamy on Greys.
            .
            The same goes for Castle, particularly since he is the title character, and the show was established through his point of view. He has integrity, a conscience, intense love and affection for those around him, and a unique way of thinking — all traits that well complement Beckett, whose integrity and conscience match his, but whose ability to fully express her love without censure was stunted years ago.
            .
            I feel like S5 was her rebirth though, in that sense, considering how clearly happy and in love Beckett allowed herself to be throughout the season. The season had flaws, which we have all discussed ad infinitum. But the characters, as dumb as they can be sometimes, are still worth rooting for, in my opinion.
            .
            No one is making us watch this show. In fact, that’s the only thing over which we have complete control.

          • Sage and fogel, excellent points. I really wished that in the off season the writers had rewatched the first two seasons and brought back the Castle of those days. Cocky and justifiably so as he was very accomplished in many areas, like being a crack marksman. The last couple of seasons they’ve turned him into a spineless bumbling buffoon, like in Human Factor where Beckett belittles his shooting even though he is a much better shot than she is. And to stop a comment I’ve received before about how unrealistic it is, I was in law enforcement for over 20 years and about half the officers I worked with were mediocre to lousy marksman, only doing the bare minimum to qualify, while in IDPA competitions non-LEO civilians regularly finish very high. The original Castle was a true Alpha male worthy of an Alpha female. Now he’s not even a beta, just a lapdog who will accept getting kicked over and over and always comes back for more. I agree that the writers seem to have emasculated him to satisfy some women who have this idea that the ideal man is one who will give up everything for you, not one who is a partner you bring into your life as an equal and with both of you willing to work out the inevitable compromises that come with joining two lives. My wife, who has completely given up on the show, and I call it the Titanic syndrome. The character Jack is the perfect guy, he’s handsome, funny and completely devoted to Rose making her feel special and of course sacrificing himself for her. She survives to get married have children and grandchildren and apparently a very adventurous life, presumably much of it with her husband. So on her death bed who does she think of? The husband she shared a family and a long life with? Naw, he was probably grumpy on occasion so to hell with him, let’s dream about the young stud I had a few day fling with, he never demanded anything of me.

            As for Castle, even before they were in a relationship he put up $100K of his own money to help her catch her mother’s killer, tried to take a bullet for her in Knockout, put himself in danger to help her through her PTSD in Rise, all the while waiting years while she worked out her issues, and telling her repeatedly how special, extraordinary, or amazing she is or how much in awe he is of her. Then of course there is the whole Still issue which is the trump to any, he’s ignoring her argument. And what similarly selfless acts has Beckett performed, nada. Hell she hasn’t even told him how his books got her through her mother’s killing. (And please, don’t say she did it’s just off stage. Everyday things like grocery shopping can be done off stage. Her letting him know how important his books were in her life is something you have to show, not imply) The writers had a chance to redeem Beckett by finally showing her making a sacrifice for Castle by refusing the job, but based on all the info that has come out, they couldn’t bring themselves to do it. So apparently Castle will continued his descent into being the odious comic relief.

      • Agreed, since the end of season 2 the writers have changed the characters. Beckett more course language and bitter comments and reactions, Castle less self assured and more of a bufoon. I prefer watching seasons 1 & 2 in reruns, those are the characters that won me as a viewer. The last 3 shows of season 5 (if in the correct chronological order) was a total departure from what had been established as a growing trusting relationship up to and including “Still” then I didn’t know who these people were. Beckett is now like one of the ex wives, who were always putting Rick down wanting and demanding he do what they want so they can have what they want or they would make his life miserable. Why? Those last three shows and the leaks of the stills from the season 6, I am not sure I want to watch anymore. It has become all about Beckett.
        The earlier comments on Nathan’s contract and work problems are noted well in the media, no one has covered or discussed the demands Stana has made since she has become red carpet royalty at least that I have read. Do you think she has not had any input into this shows direction and the scripts submitted? There is no doubt more input from her than we will ever no about because she wants a movie deal and Disney can give her that. That is what we have been seeing her being showcased to better her career. Beckett has become way to hard of a character for me to even want to continue as a viewer, but I will watch the first shows of season 6 and make a final decision when they break the season after the first half. Really loved this show once and the writing of the character interaction, but it is getting tedious. The Beckett character doesn’t seem to know how to love anyone, not even herself, getting way to physchological in her character development. Bring back season 1 Beckett and season 2 Castle, please!

        • Like I said you have to stop being so negative about the show. Characters evolve over the time and the show would be boring if they were still like in season 1 and 2. It’s always about the drama that keeps it going. You can’t always have the lovey dovey there has be some tension sometimes. I think if you were a real fan you would stand by the two and know that they always get through whatever they have to get through. I will always be the writers side no matter what happens.

    • Hello, I’m Andrew Marlowe and I don’t know diddley squat about relationships, as many of you may have figured out years ago. I can only write stories that serve to draw things out to an unnatural length, and that fly in the face of how people actually behave when they are in love with someone and both of the people in the relationship know it. Actually, I can’t get off the fence on whether to get this relationship moving farther along or not. I am big on looking for any excuse to introduce more conflict in the mix than in writing good stories that might focus on the police work more than the love story. I’m not so much interested in satisfying the viewers as I am in keeping them “hooked.” So, keep watching, whether the stories are any good or not. Thanks so much. Oh, and “Whoo-hoo, I’m making a TON of $$$$$!!

  • She jumps up “you’re proposing?” – because she thought he was breaking up with her.. He says “of course, I love you”. She says “I have to tell you something, first.” She tells him she is taking the job and he says, “I mean it, Kate, I love you, I don’t care about the job, work where you want.. Will you marry me?” THEN she says yes.. They kiss, he puts the ring on her and the hug. Then time jumps to her on the job 3-6 months later..
    .
    At least that’s my guess.

They may have to shoot a scene on Monday morning, then another scene in the evening. It all depends on the availability of the site they are filming. So I agree it is a scheduling issue, and they could let him have it through scheduling.

Literally every other dispute, from Friends to the Simpsons voice actors a few years ago, we hear the outcome. I’m confused why you’re so positive we will never hear of this.

If the “contract dispute” (and I use that term loosely since it doesnt even sound like one) has no bearing on the outcome of the show, why do we need to know the details? Because it got leaked? The majority of people understand that the Internet has a way of making things out to be a much bigger deal than they actually are.

I mean heck they’d have to scout out an entire new section of Los Angeles that looks like D.C. to step in for their NYC lookalike streets. :)

      [I was SO bummed when OUAT shot a neat looking section of "SoHo" with what looked like a miniature Flatiron Building and it turned out to be a teeny section of Vancouver near the water!

    • Your guess is about the best response I’ve read. It makes sense that the only way they can make it work is for her to take the job in Washington and give it a go. In your time lapse period it will give the writers a chance to right the ship, if you will, because they drifted off course the last two episodes of season 5. Beckett will realize that the fed job wasn’t her cup of tea and she will return to New York where they can continue to be amazing together and still maintain the work relationship separate from their personal lives. The chemistry of the cast makes this whole thing work as their interactions allows them to finally solve their murders which is the bottom line for these homicide detectives and a writer even if it’s done in an unconventional way at times. I’m not sure how adding two new characters will affect the casts chemistry but it will take a little time to see where they are heading. The writers have a small window of opportunity to get “CASTLE” humming again so I hope they do it justice or as Beckett and Castle have said “It’s Over”.

        • Yes, it’s writers that avoid the natural evolution of their show to stick to some arbitrary game plan that cause the biggest train wrecks. If an actor’s onscreen performance opens doors they’re fools not to step through. How would “The West Wing” have turned out if they’d stayed focused on Rob Lowe’s character as planned even after Martin Sheen’s character clearly stole the show in the closing moments of the pilot? Dawson’s Creek evolved between the characters and that’s the organic way to write a show, so sometimes the destination isn’t what was initially billed.

  • Love the teaser! It’s totally a response you would expect from her–if you’ve watched the show for 5 seasons you should know they put a little humor in everything. We know she says yes and takes the job. I can’t wait to see how the whole scene plays out.

  • Barely hanging on until the 23rd. I think Kate thought Rick was breaking up with her and when she realized that wasn’t the case and in fact he was proposing she acted goofy based on pure shock

    Comment by Marlene Mason – August 26, 2013 06:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I did think that in the last couple of episodes, Beckett’s character didn’t make any sense. She was mad at Castle for playing video games and came THIS CLOSE to kissing that billionaire, and she “didn’t know where their relationship was going” when Rick had stood by her side, in their last moments when she was standing on a bomb, then she considers a job offer to move and kind of gives Rick an ultimatum (of sorts) and so he proposes. But in this clip, she looks shocked. Why is she shocked he was proposing. She basically told him “put up or shut up” so he puts up. I love Beckett but WTH? Pick a position and stick with it crazy woman!!!!

    • First, it’s important to keep in mind that the last few episodes were out of sequence due to the Boston Marathon bombing.
      .
      Beckett being unsure of Castle’s motivations stretches all the way back to when Meredith came to visit in Season 5. The whole season was essentially a foreshadowing of them having this great chemical relationship but no one really talking about where it’s going long term. Is it really forever love or just a for-now type of relationship? Most people start asking themselves those questions when they’ve been with someone for so long. There’s lot of people who date for years and stand by each other through thick and thin but refuse to marry for a number of different reasons. It wasn’t even until Still that they even said “I love you” to each other in the season.
      .
      As for why she was shocked, based on his speech she was expecting him to say he wanted to break-up; that he wanted more from a relationship then someone who keeps everything to herself. So when he asked her to marry him it was going right when she was expecting left.

      • Have you noticed “Sage” that if you say one bad word about the “B” character how the whole place comes down on your head.

        I do not agree with your one comment. The writers know exactly where they are going. I for one hope it’s the unemployment line.

        Just a thought.

        • I’m certainly bot a “B” fan, so I will be happy to reply to those who are blinded by Kate’s faults and boy, does she have a few. I was deeply disappointed that Castle proposed because if this were in real life Castle would have kicked that tall, skinny cheater to the curb.

    • She definitely knows how to stick it to Rick. If Andrew, Terri and Stana were men Beckett wouldn’t be the little princess. Oops, Andrew is a man, I guess. Perhaps Terri and Stana have neutered him.

  • I cannot believe how some have taken one little contract tidbit regarding Nathan and turned it into a hate campaign like they know all the details. This is the man who speaks up for the cast and crew at every chance, who is loved by the entire cast/crew as verified by their many comments and tweets. You have no idea what days he is and isn’t on set or how many days he’s working unless you actually happen to be on set, which I doubt. Give the guy a break! And I can’t wait, this season looks awesome!

    Comment by Guest – August 26, 2013 06:19 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • This! I totally agree. Nathan has always been so beloved by the cast and crew, the people who would be most affected if there was a real issue, and that hasn’t changed since that story came out – if anything, they’ve been even more vocal.

  • This is exciting and I cant wait for the premiere. Hell, I was a JAG fan for the entire ride and all we got was 7 minutes in the series finale. This like getting a big giant birthday cake wrapped in deep fried turkey. I’ll take it. If y’all dont want to watch anymore, then more power to you. Dont bitch and moan and rob us real fans of the joy that is shipping Castle and Beckett in whatever form we choose. Go…..mow the lawn or something.

  • When they give Beckett less screen time (she’s basically becoming the lead of the show, when it’s CASTLE’S show). Give Castle and the others more screen time. Get rid of Alexis. She isn’t needed on the show anymore. Her scenes are always forced. I want to see more of who Castle is, not Beckett. Her name isn’t the show, Castle is. This D.C. story is crap and Beckett is so OOC now.

    Also, to anyone badmouthing Nathan, stop! You guys don’t seem to ever badmouth Stana, so enough! Half of this fandom is rude and embarrassing enough that some are just done with this show.

    Comment by Sage – August 26, 2013 06:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • See I actually disagree with getting rid of Alexis. I think we need more of her and Martha as well. That shows a huge part of Castle’s life and if we’re talking about putting him front and center again, I think you need both of them. The thing I miss the most is seeing him actually WRITE. That was the whole start up of the show and we never see it anymore.

          • Because it would be nice to just see comments on the actual show-which is what this article is about- and not have people bring an actors personal life into it over and over and over. You didn’t still answer my question but whatever. I’ll stick to talking about the show which is what I prefer and you can can comment on whatever you wish to comment on.

    • I love Alexis. As someone only a few years older than her, it’s been interesting to watch her grow and see how Castle handles it. I think it’s a great part of the show that humanizes it and drives plot.

  • That Sneek surprised me. Considering Kate thought Castle was going to break up with her, I visualized her being more emotional and not screaming, “You’re Proposing?” Is there ever going to be a real emotional, tear-filled scene?

    Comment by Teri – August 26, 2013 06:51 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Considering, in the finale, talking with her father, it sounded like she wouldn’t care if they split up. If you tell someone that you don’t think the relationship is real, then you should not be accepting a proposal. Her reaction shows that they shouldn’t be engaged yet. but of course, they have nothing else to do aside from Beckett’s D.C story, which is also ridiculous and forced.

      • It’s awful to see men like you..attacking a strong female fictional character just because they feel intimated by her personality…In real life you wouldn’t have a woman like that…And Castle should feel lucky that she say yes!

        • See Sage I told so. Bad mouth the character (oh excuse me…express a contrary opinion) and now YOU become a “spineless” Beta male who is “intimated” by her personality. I’d write more but first I have to stop laughing.

          Intimated is being yelled at by a 4 Star General in the middle of a planning session. Intimated is not going to your room with your head between you knees because you’ve been told “the correct way to think” and you are feeling soooo sorry for your thoughtless words.

          I have to stop. This whole Alpha character BS has me laughing so hard I have to excuse myself.

          Just a thought.

          • The word you’re looking to use is “Intimidated” not “Intimated”. If you’re going to post a sarcastic comment at least use the right words! Granted many of the comments on this particular post seem to be more pro-Beckett, but normally I see a lot of people unhappy with the way her character is portrayed. It seems to be pretty split between the two.

        • That strong female character isn’t as strong as you might think. Look at the entire series from the beginning through S-5 and you will see much weakness, usually weaknesses involving issues of character. She is a liar and a sneak. Take a look and see for yourself!

  • For all you guys who think Nathan isn’t on set -wrong! He worked Friday, got on a plane to Toronto, got in at 5:30 A.M Saturday., signed hundreds of autographs, did hundreds of photo-ops, then on Sunday did more signings and the Q&A, where he was totally complementary to Castle, got back on a plane and worked on location today. He is working hard, not dissing anyone on Castle and no one is dissing him. Move on. Find something else to talk about, like what might actually happen on the show. There are some fun plotlines coming up.

I’m not from the US we don’t have this stuff happen normally dont know how it works. Sry its confusing to me! i thoght he was working again?

        • No worries! It really seems ridiculous the fuss people make over something that is really nothing. The story got leaked that Nathan didnt show up on set one day because he wanted to work 4 days a week. By all accounts it seemed to be a scheduling issue (wanting not to spend hours on set when you’re not shooting any scenes) rather than him just wanting to work less. But people jump to the conclusion that he’s selfish and is just not wanting to work (which could be the case but seeing as though no one else is complaining about him, I doubt it). The story broke after he was already back on set and working so it appears everything was fine. Like I said, people like to make a big fuss over nothing.

        • Every fandom has its character haters. As you can see some vehemently hate Kate/Stana and other Nathan/Castle. Its par for the course. NO big deal. Unfortunately its those who blurr the lines between the character and the actor that get scary. Those people need to step out of their mamas basement and get a REAL life.

          • In all fairness I don’t think your point here is relevant at all. I agree this happens and it’s scary. Look at the OP Ed piece the actress who plays Skylar on Breaking Bad just wrote. However, this case has nothing to do with confusing character and actor. People are angry about what Nathan did, not his character. This is not the case of his character doing something bad and then he gets death threats. Whatever u choose to believe about this whole four day fiasco, all the posts I’ve read on this board, from people like Concerned, have been articulate and well thought out. This is NOT a case of “omg castle kissed another woman I hate Nathan fillion!” Zero lines have been blurred. And it’s kinda unfair to lump the people who have issues with Nathan’s decision into that category of wackos

          • Tom Tom my comment was aimed at people who DO blurr the lines. No not everyone in the fandom feels this way but a bunch of them do. I was commenting on some of the posts I had read further up. Its obvious some of them are confused as to who is the actor and who is the character. If my reply doesnt refer to you, cool. Wasnt my intent anyway. “nothing to see here folks, move along”

            Comment by Trish – August 27, 2013 06:29 AM PDT  
          • You are responding to a thread directly talking about a group of peopl who think it was wrong Nathan didnt show up to set so he could work less days. That is the thread u meant to respond to, right? I felt I needed to stick up for them because they in no way are blurring any lines between actor or character. They have an issue with the actor and the behind-the-scenes drama. I’m just saying I’m confused why you are posting this in response to them. Whoever “above posters” you were referring to you should respond directly to the thread where they are attacking the actor based solely on character actions. I’m not trying to be rude or a smarta** here I just have no idea the point you are trying to make about people confusing character under a thread having nothing to do with the character at all, just the actor himself.

  • There is a ridiculous grin on my face right now!!!! And this is so in character!!!

Oh season 6 I cannot wait!!!

  • Well after trying and trying to get sound and was unsuccessful, I tried to piece together what transpired based on the comments and all I can say is this. There would never be a traditional proposal between the Rick and Kate we know and love. He would not simply get on bended knee and reach for her hand, and she would not be anticipating such. It would of course be peppered with some misunderstanding, misconstruction, maybe a few bullets fired in their direction causing them to duck, and of course a certain level of comedic farce! Now THAT’S the Rick and Kate I know and love. It’s for our enjoyment, so I say let’s enjoy.
