For the entire time in which Kate Beckett has been a detective, her primary residence has been the grand city of New York. It is the place that she knows as her home, and it is also the place she both fell in love and helped to figure out who was responsible for her mother’s death.
However, on next Monday’s all-new “Castle” season 5 episode entitled “The Human Factor,” she is going to have a chance in many ways to take off from some of her past and start anew. Specifically, we are talking about a job offer that she is going to receive to take off to Washington. Will she take it? That much is unclear, with one of the biggest issues she is facing being that over the course of the past several weeks, Castle has not exactly opened up to her in the way that she (or any girlfriend) would want.
Before we do anything else, be sure to check out the synopsis below if you have not already:
“When Homeland Security inexplicably seals the crime scene of a car bombing, Castle and Beckett find themselves with two mysteries on their hands: who murdered the victim, a government whistleblower, and why are federal agents trying to take over the case? The plot thickens when they discover that the victim wasn’t killed by a car bomb but by a missile from a military drone.”
If Beckett does consider this job heavily, it is going to be up to Castle in order to determine whether or not he is really going to be ready to make the emotional moves necessary to keep her around. Unfortunately, he’s not going to have much time to make this decision…
