Low ratings will have Castle canceled by Christmas.(September 30th) I feel sorry for all the husbands out there with wives that think Beckett did the right thing by walking out of her marriage to keep Castle "safe". She might want to remember how many times he has kept her safe. In the end she will say sorry Rick and he will say no problem Kate. I love you and I don't care that you screwed me over again. Just come home and I won't even think about how many more times in our marriage you will walk away for the job. Sure would make me want kids with that woman.
Down into the 6 1/2 million range already.(October 13)
Am I the only person in fanfiction that doesn't accept ridiculous situations. Castle has waited years to get his shot at dating Beckett. Pathetic I know but not my point. I briefly scanned a fic where Josh knocks up Kate. Of course the goal is to get Kate and Rick together even though she is having another man's baby. Now let me set the mood properly.
Josh and Rick hate each other. Speaking from a man's point of view, I have dated many women over the years that had children. You don't mind she has children as there are so many divorces in the world. One of the reasons you don't mind is you have no background with the father. He may be a douche but he is an unknown douche. Now if Kate and Rick start dating while she is pregnant, he knows for sure he isn't the father. He also knows he really was never going to have a chance dating her. So his dream of being her one is over. Now he may be the first man to marry her, but he will never be the first man to father her baby.
So let's put this in perspective. Josh will be in her life until the child is 18. The two men that hate each other will see the other all the time. Kate has been pushing Castle away for years, so why now would she let him in? Because Josh is being an ass and she needs someone to help her. Doesn't he see that she is using him? He wasn't good enough a month ago, suddenly she is open to dating him? Uh huh.
I think if anything Rick needs to run for the hills.
Got to love PM's that decree no Kate bashing. I am going to explain why that is one of the most ridiculous things a writer can say. Number 1. Are we only allowed to give rosy reviews? Are you so insecure you can't take criticism of either a plot point, a certain character, or flaws in your writing that may need to be improved? Number 2. As the writer, you might want to remind yourself you wrote her that way. If she is treating Castle terribly, you wrote it. Did you really expect us to say wow Kate Beckett is wonderful in chapter 7(example) while she screws Rick over? If you are going to make her a bitch, you are most likely going to get a response saying she is a bitch. Surprise! Number 3. This is the most important point. If we didn't bash for acting a certain way in a chapter, wouldn't that mean your writing failed? You purposely made her evil for whatever reason so if we don't say damn Beckett is a bitch, you didn't write her very well. I would think you would approve of bashing as a way to say you did a good job.
I was reading a response the other day that said Castle has slept with way more women on the show than Kate has with men.
Castle has slept with Meredith once, Gina who knows how many times, and Ellie Monroe three times I think.
Kate has slept with Will, Demming maybe although I don't think so, and Josh.
Two of Castle's are ex wives. Only one actual conquest.
Kate had 3 separate relationships.
For a playboy, Rick had less sex than Kate. His relationship with Gina lasted about 4 months or so while Kate's with Josh was 9. She was with Demming for a month. She was with Will off camera for six months and then at the end of season 1 we have no idea how long it lasted.
