Will Kate Beckett Get Pregnant in Castle Season 5?
Now that Kate Beckett and Rick Castle are finally together, we can’t help but think ahead to marriage, babies, and a happily ever after.
Even though the couple’s timing isn’t conventional in the least, when we saw TVLine’s blind item about a female lead character getting pregnant this season, our minds started reeling. And when Kate was listed as one of the 13 potential mamas-to-be, we were even more intrigued.
TVLine’s Michael Ausiello reports that in the next three months, her condition will be revealed on air, and that this “lead on an established series (i.e. more than a season old)” will be “shocked” by the news. In Kate’s company are women of all ages, including Glee’s Rachel, Gossip Girl’s Serena, Grey’s Anatomy’s Meredith, Homeland’s Carrie and How I Met Your Mother’s Robin.
Many of these characters have back stories that conflict with pregnancy storylines, though. For example, Homeland’s showrunners said that they will not be writing Claire Danes’s pregnancy into the show; HIMYM’s Robin is infertile; and Glee has already tackled the big teen pregnancy storyline. Although it’s a stretch, we think Kate could be the winner here!
What do you think, Castle fans? Should Kate Beckett get pregnant this season? Weigh in below.
