‘Castle’ Season 6: Will She or Won’t She? [Video]

Castle Season 5 Episode 13 Recoil (9)

At the end of season 5 of the popular ABC drama Castle, mystery novelist Richard Castle (series lead Nathan Fillion) got down on bended knee, asking Detective Kate Beckett (series lead Stana Katic) to marry him; but – in true cliffhanger season finale fashion – her answer was left hanging until fall. Thankfully, fall is here and Kate’s answer is mere days away.

There, of course, has been a lot of speculation as to whether she will say yes or no to Rick’s proposal; but she has two big questions to answer: Will she marry Rick and will she take the job in D.C. with the U.S. Attorney General’s office?

Fans have been speculating all summer what might happen and the folks over at TV Line joined that speculation by sharing the following:

What if Kate asks for time to decide on both fronts?

This could give her time to decide answers to both questions, allowing her to stay in New York working for the precinct. But a delay could jeopardize this new job opportunity and only make her decision regarding Rick even harder.

What if she says yes to Rick and pass on the job?

Rick will, of course, jump on the “we’re getting married bandwagon” and I am sure that Kate will be happy with her choice to say yes to Rick, but if she passes on the job, will it eat away at her and eventually make her blame Rick.

What if she says no to Rick (or at least not right now) and takes the job in D.C.?

Their partnership and relationship could be kaput and she will be out of New York. How in the world will the show continue with that kind of answer? It’s likely that she won’t say no to one of the two questions, but which one?

It should also be noted that Stana Katic KNOWS what Kate’s answer will be and she has been keeping quiet all summer long. She shared with Entertainment Weekly back in June, “I think that her answer is the perfect one for the character and for the show.” She further went on to state, “I think it has been long enough for a yes or no answer. I figure the intense situations they’ve gone through together has sped up their bond”.

The only way we will know for sure what Kate’s answer will be to both questions is to tune into the sixth season premiere of ‘Castle’ on Monday, September 23 at 10/9c.
