ABC’s ‘Castle’ season 5 finale spoilers: Series boss talks ’emotional’ cliffhanger

CasteAs we near the season finale of “Castle” that is airing in just two more weeks, there are understandably plenty of important questions to ask. Specifically, we have to wonder just whether or not we are going to see Castle and Beckett really go the distance, or instead crumble into pieces under the weight of everything that has been building for the past several weeks.

Do you remember the concerns that Beckett showed at the end of “The Squab and the Quail”? Those have been starting to slowly percolate in her mind ever since Meredith first gave her a warning earlier this year, and it causes her to wonder whether or not these two can have a deeper relationship beyond just cute one-liners and one part of the pair fully pouring her heart into things while the other stays quiet.

All of this will come to a head in the finale (entitled “Watershed”), and executive producer Andrew W. Marlowe tells TVLine that there are going to be a few loose ends that could need to be tied up when a potential season 6 starts up in the fall:

“There is a bit of a cliffhanger, yeah. It’s an emotional cliffhanger that I think will propel us into some great, complicated, interesting storytelling as we head into next season — assuming the TV gods are kind and grant us one.”

While there has been no confirmation yet on a “Castle” renewal, it’s pretty much a lock. The show recently beat “Revolution” for the first time in the 18-49 demographic, and has proven to be just as strong in that demo as its “Dancing with the Stars” lead-in. Syndication prospects have seemingly helped the show out, and it seems as though it is not going anywhere.
