The good thing about last night's finale is that, if things go completely off the rails in S8, it will be easy to pretend everything just ended with S7. I just hope the new season gives the supporting players some more screen time.

Calling it now, next season will give us a pregnancy if not an actual baby.

Also the President of ABC confirmed next year will NOT be the final season.

Ah drat. I was kind of hoping for a 13 episode send off at this point.

Also the ending to the 3XK arc was one of the more satisfying wrap ups I've seen on TV.

'No I lured you here to die' and Beckett's face and the music when she catches the knife. Goddamn.

I'm full I dont need to see the dessert menu thanks.

I wouldn't mind an 8th season, but I would have been content with 7.

9th season? I dunno. Ideas are already stretched pretty thin so far.

Well, Fillion and Katic have only signed up for one-year contracts, so if they decide 8 is the last one (which I think it should be), then the ABC brass is going to have to just deal with that.

As long as I get my Renaissance Faire episode, I'm good.

wiggly eyes!



I kept seeing people after a Renaissance Faire episode and thinking 'but they did one!'

Except they didn't, I'm think of Warehouse 13. Which is also well worth watching.

Not necessarily, they could start following the exploits of Alexis as she follows in the mystery solving footsteps of her father, a new Castle for a new generation.

...not saying they would or necessarily should mind you, just that they could.

Indeed. This isn't a Joss Whedon show, after all.

If this was a Joss Whedon show Alexis would be randomly hit by a car at the end of an episode

Alexis should've taken her place on the show, somehow.

So the actress who plays Gates sent out a tweet that she won't be back in Season 8. That's kind of a shame. I rather liked her character.

But this makes it pretty darn obvious that Beckett will be the precinct's new captain.

I agree that I think of Katic left, the show could have rebooted into a new enough of a format to keep on trucking for more than another season, but as it is, the gas is low.

It's the kind of shake up it needed.

Her name always drove me nuts because the only other thing I saw her on was DS9 as Cassidy Yates, which sounds a lot like Gates. Too bad she doesn't even have an exit episode?

As the plane goes down, Jack Bauer lowers his rocket launcher, satisfied that Sherry Palmer's second life has been cut short.

All this time I never realized it was her! I should have, she doesn't look that different and I totally recognize the voice now.

No, she would've been in a random car accident and they would have found her with the steering wheel column through her chest, her lungs punctured but with just enough air to release one final, pithy goodbye.

Was last season the one where Stana arrested a US Senator running for President declaring to a room full of reporters, "You're under arrest for killing my mommy!" even though he was charged with some other, unrelated crime?

Or was last season the season where Alexis was kidnapped and held for ransom by muslim terrorists two blocks away from the Eiffel Tower?

If those things happened in two separate seasons they would have been 6 and 7. I think they happened within the same season and I believe that the last season I watched (6) ended with Beckett arresting Senator Bracken/getting married etc. I remember seeing the wedding, and Castle losing his memory. I might have even seen a few episodes of the most recently completed season but I'll have to go back and rewatch regardless.

I'm OK with that. As much as I enjoy the show and the cast, I just wanted a break for a while. Took a season and a half off, seems like a good time to get back into it.

It won't happen but I would be entirely fine if someone blew away Beckett and the entire show redevelops itself pretty much as Castle, PI. It might even put some more gas in the tank, to be honest.
