Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

There's no better time to propose than when the woman you're proposing to thinks you're breaking up with her. I can't believe Castle's been divorced twice with smooth moves like that.

I know they can't all be amazing season finales, but this one was particularly underwhelming (which I guess fits this lackluster season), and it's not even much of a cliffhanger since I can't see Kate possibly saying yes to Castle's proposal under these circumstances. She'd always wonder if he was being pressured into it out of fear of losing her, and it would just give rise to resentment, whereas a proposal made during happier, less tension-filled times would bode well for a more fulfilling marriage.
My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
