No matter what happens on “Castle” season 6, one thing appears to be clear: There is no way that both Castle and Beckett get everything that they want right away. There are going to be some stumbling blocks that cause their life to be difficult in the wake of the proposal, and the new job that was offered to Beckett at the end of season 5. Each one of these will directly impact the other, and while a happy ending is still definitely possible for our characters, it is not guaranteed by any means.
Speaking about some of the circumstances that await Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic’s characters this coming season, executive producer Andrew Marlowe had the following to say as a part of a new interview with TV Guide:
“There are four possible outcomes and each of them have their own particular consequences. There’s no version of this that’s easy and that they live happily ever after — even with the good stuff … How can she make any choice without giving something up? She’ll have to sacrifice something,”
If you map out the scenarios, it basically goes as follows.
1. If Beckett takes the job and says yes to Castle’s proposal, then the two have to manage being engaged without seeing each other on a frequent basis.
2. If Beckett takes the job and says no to the proposal, she is less encumbered … but also miserable.
3. If Beckett doesn’t take the job and says yes to the proposal, there’s possible resentment about the career that could have been.
4. If Beckett doesn’t take the job and says no … well, we would throw popcorn at our TV in confusion.
