This is foreshadowing, Marlowe is going to make it again
all hail Marlowe and his terrific + constant use of foreshadowing
I think this was my favorite part of this episode. He knew exactly where to reach.
“So whatever happens, whatever you decide…Katherine Houghton Beckett, will you marry me?” Castle
in the 3rd one you can see her swallow, preparing for him to end things between them, then BOOM. proposal….i’m gonna be crying in a corner if anyone needs me.
Caskett parallel “the future” talk with the parents
So whatever happens, whatever you decide….
I love that he said “whatever happens, whatever you decide” before he asked her to marry him. He didn’t say ‘I want to marry you, but only if you turn down the job and stay here’. He wants to marry her, no matter what. He’s still letting her decide what she wants, he’s not using the proposal as a way to try and make her stay. He just knows that she’s his third time’s a charm and he wants to be her one and done.
No. Matter. What.
UGH. s o b b i n g
Marlowe, you beautiful scumbag
i love how he doesn’t make her choose between the job and him. He kinda makes it easier for her.
^^^ That is wat he has been doing for the past 5 years!
I loved it on principle, but I still kind of thought it was a dick move. I mean, what girl doesn’t dream of a proposal from a guy who’s too pissed at you to smile while he’s asking you to spend the rest of your life with him. Makes you swoon from the romance, that’s what it does. Even though he gave her an out first, it still reeks of desperation, so I’m honestly not sure what she’s going to say. If I were her, I’d say not right now, but ask me again soon. I really hope she says yes though.
See, I didn’t think he was too pissed to smile. I think he wasn’t smiling because he wanted her to know he was serious. Castle is the class clown, so to say, and he’s rarely without a grin on his face. So a straight face from him lets you know that he really wants you to hear what he’s saying, and know that it’s important. Would a smile have been more romantic? Perhaps. But I think the proposal was romantic in a different sense. What I saw here was a man in love, who is finally giving in to what he wants. He’s letting go of his fears and diving in head first, hopeful that she’ll dive in with him. I agree that he did it out of desperation, but I don’t think it was a bad thing. He’s saying ‘hey, I’m in this for the long haul, if you’ll have me, no matter where work or life takes you’. He is desperate, but not to try and make her stay or choose him over a job. He’s desperate to be with her, to spend his life with her. All things considered from the last few episodes and who Castle and Beckett are as individuals and as a couple, I think this was the perfect proposal.
neverleaveyourhands AGREED. Him being so dead serious, was exactly what Beckett needs. No more joking and pussyfooting around.
I understand where Kate is coming from when she constantly has talked about controlling the direction of her life. She is a very ambitious and driven woman that wants to have certainty, certainty that she has always received from her job. The job is one of the loves of her life, that now conflicts with the other love of her life, Castle. And though she loves him, she is now in a very tough spot. Because he is something she has never been able to control or predict.
All in all I feel for her. All I’m hoping for is that she can reconcile the two things she loves, and find a reasonable compromise.
Aghhhhhh! I JUST WANT KATE BECKETT TO BE HAPPY DAMMIT!!!
OH. MY. GOODNESS.
“I’ve decided that I want more. We both deserve more.”
She so thought he was dumping her right here.
ohgod her face in that second one. just. it looks like she had decided to not take the job. and we didn’t know it. and she was going to him to tell him she wanted him. and that she wasn’t taking the job and here all of it was falling in her face. thats what that looks like.
That is why you NEED Castle in your life, Kate!
HE COMPLETES YOU.
…..omg I just realized how cheesy that previous statement was….
last Castle and Beckett interaction each season…
Season Finales 1-5
“Actually, most girls prefer something a little more intimate.”
AND in this moment the whole Castle fandom was hyperventilating and sobbing simultaneously
Okay followers, I am apologizing in advance…. Since today and probably for the next few days, I will be reblogging a hell of a lot of Castle Finale-related things.
All I ask is that you bear with me.
