Castle - Season 7 discussion and spoilers

Surprised someone didn't already make the season thread for this show since tonight was the season premiere, so here it is. Anyone know if this is going to be the final season? It's getting up there in years and price.



Driven: 7x01 - The season 7 premiere picks up right where last season's finale left off. As Castle was driving to his wedding a black SUV came roaring at him. Beckett is worried when Castle doesn't show up but soon she is called to an accident scene where Castle's car is engulfed in flames. Now Beckett must find who or what caused the crash and determine if Castle could have survived.

Re: Castle - Season 7 discussion and spoilers

This is getting so soapy. I could do without another show that keeps concocting more and more contrived excuses to keep the leads from getting married. It was bad enough when Lois and Clark did it. Seriously, having Castle disappear on the way to his wedding and then come back two months later with no memory of what happened to him, yet, conveniently, no brain damage? Deeply melodramatic and corny.

Sometimes I wish that the modern trend of serialized storytelling hadn't become quite so ubiquitous. There are some shows that would probably be better off if they skipped the overarching mystery storylines and just focused on the characters we like dealing with cases of the week.

Re: Castle - Season 7 discussion and spoilers

I fell asleep at 9 so I didn't see it et, nor do i really care to. However from the sounds of it I didn't miss anything.

The only excuse I could think of for that mess of a finale was if Castle's dad came back and needed his help.

Yea, and the "I can't remember" is more like "If you say anything, everyone you love is in danger."

Re: Castle - Season 7 discussion and spoilers

A d the show got the best ratings it did in three years. Ewww. That means this soup opera bullshit works and they will probably continue it. I'm kind of hoping this is the finale season because Nathan Fillion will tell them no to an 8th season.

I didn't think it was all that bad. It had been worse before tbh. Don't care for the soap crap though, hoping that Castle gets his memory back asap.

That's what i figured too or he is willingly keeping his mouth shut, maybe it's got to do with Castle's dad's line of work.. that godawful secret agent storyline.

It wasn't as bad as i feared it would be when i read the first comments here though my eyes rolled so hard at last season's finale they nearly fell out of their sockets but as with another show i watch (Greys Anatomy) that had it's share of bad season finales they did manage to pull good stories out of it for the following season and i hope they do that too for Castle.

I am intrigued now and they certainly dropped enough hints to keep everyone guessing.. let's see how long they will stretch that.

Oh.. and Beckett ragetackling that junkyard guy was just awesome!

Totally agree!

That said, Stana really pulled out the stops this week. Wonderful performance.

The wedding is supposed to take place for real this time probably in November sweeps.

Re: Castle - Season 7 discussion and spoilers

I kind of refuse to believe thats really Castle. After all the crap with 3XK changing faces and the like (And don't forget Pi. What is Pi again? 3.14, or 3.XIV) and Castle acting REALLY REALLY weird after he comes out of it (seriously, watch the ending with them in the bedroom and tell me thats how Castle would handle what just happened).

Now, If I'm wrong and that really is Castle, then this show has done fucked up. Fillion definitely seemed to be playing it off so there has to be something up, I doubt he's suddenly decided "fuck it I'll phone it in" now.

Lainie did blood work on him when he returned, and probably other tests. I doubt she'd be fooled by an impostor. It's him, all right. But he's just been through a major trauma, and memory loss could come with other neurological issues, so it's understandable if he's acting a little unusually.

Didn't he walk off the set last season because of long days? I'm hoping this season is really the last just because Nathan Fillion has the common sense to say "Seven years is enough".

Re: Castle - Season 7 discussion and spoilers

My immediate reaction upon seeing the teaser for next week's episode was, "But wait! He's compromised! They still don't know where he was or what he was doing for two months! He's either missing his memory or doing a very good job of keeping quiet. And Captain Gates is letting him work an active murder investigation? What the hell?"

And then I remembered I was watching Castle.
