This season has been fantastic for Caskett fans. Not only did Rick and Kate finally get together in CastleSeason 5, but they have already celebrated a few milestones — including consummating their relationship. Hubba, hubba.
But as we gear up for February sweeps, we can’t help but be a bit worried for our favorite couple. Seeing them together is great, but without the tension and will-they-won’t-they, some worry things could get stale fast. And with TVLine’s latest blind item revealing that a “a pivotal couple on a show with a very passionate audience may be going their separate ways by season’s end,” we’re even more nervous.
While Castle is one out of nine possible shows — including Bones’ Booth and Brennan and Grey’s Anatomy’s Meredith and Derek — Michael Ausiello goes on to say that “producers of the hour-long drama in question are looking to close out the season with a bang, and they believe splitting up this beloved couple will provide just such a jolt,” and that this shocking break-up “would give the series a lot of creative juice as it heads into what could be its final season.” It’s tough to admit, but that does sound a lot like Castle.
So will Caskett fall to the Moonlighting curse, with producers tearing the couple apart just after they got together? Not so fast. Creator Andrew Marlowe has said countless times that he refuses to let Castle fall victim to Moonlighting’s downfall, and our favorite couple should be safe.
“I think it was time for the two characters to come together, but it's certainly not the end of their story,” Andrew recently told Wetpaint Entertainment, and he even went as far as to say, “We won’t have them break up,” to TV Guide.
Phew! Do you think Castle and Beckett’s relationship will stand the test of time? Sound off below.
