After this week’s explosive season finale of Castle, everyone’s favorite cop-and-novelist crimefighting team are finally a couple. But after so many years of teasing the audience with their will-they-won’t-they chemistry, will Castle’s powers that be actually let those two crazy kids be together?
Not to worry — Castle boss Andrew Marlowe seems to enjoy their consummation as much as we do.
"They had to confront the betrayals, they had to confront the secrets and they had to confront how they feel about each other," Marlowe told E! Online. "I think that the payment was a little bit of fun in getting to the other side of all this 'angsty' stuff and help reinject this show with an element of fun."
No worries, Andrew! It was always fun. But glad you’re on board.
So why get them together now? Andrew admits that they had run out of obstacles to throw in their path. "We felt like we had run everything we could possibly get out of the two of them not being together and that we were dangerously close to having to repeat ourselves or step backwards."
Not that that means that Castle and Beckett’s “happily ever after” will arrive any time soon — they’ve still got plenty of rocky times ahead.
“No means do we feel like this is the end of our storytelling," Marlowe says. "Once people get together, there are plenty of fun challenges, relationship obstacles to overcome [and] really uncomfortable, great, wonderful, crazy, challenging moments that they're going to have to face."
