Note: This is part of my ongoing reviews of the Castle television show’s seasons, the books written by “Richard Castle”, and some events related to the show. For the parent post with links to all of these, please click here. In the coming days I will also post reviews of the latest books.
Note 2: There are spoilers for Season 5 in this post.
This season picks up right where Season 5 ended. Castle has just proposed marriage to Beckett. The context at the end of Season 5 was one where it seemed more likely they were going to break up than they were going to get engaged. It was then surprising for the fans that show runner Andrew Marlowe actually had her accept. Most fans had grown cynical of Marlowe’s apparent continued dislike for the two of them as a couple. It’s possible the network had a word with him and told him that they wanted ratings, which meant giving the fans what they wanted to see – Castle and Beckett as a couple, or “Caskett” as some fans referred to them.
