Kudos to Andrew Marlowe and his writing staff. I have watched this show progress since season one and it has only grown stronger. It is such great story telling. If one watches the episodes consecutively and in a marathon like setting, one can see the gradual emergence of a plan for the story. I am really relishing where next season will take us. The actors were in their best form for this episode. I thought it was Nathan's best performance this season and Stana has had several very powerful episodes but she was beautiful, passionate, and true to her character in this one. Thank you, Mr. Marlowe and the cast of Castle for such an outstanding episode. The scene when Beckett comes to Castle's door showed so many emotions in both characters and was done very tastefully, passionately, and lovingly. What a gift for us fans.
I don't know why this show doesn't receive more accolades such as some Emmy noms. You don't get better writing and acting than this. Stana has some outstanding performances this season; I haven't seen any better than "Kill Shot" in other shows. The cast is well suited for each other and the program, and seemingly have great chemistry. Each character is essential to what we love about “Castle.”
I can't even imagine ABC not renewing because this show will only continue to get better and it is pretty darn great now. The show has been in the top 10 according to TV Guide several weeks. Thanks again for some top of the line entertainment. I will be anticipating next season eagerly while I watch the series over again this summer.

karkar: I'm sure it was not your intention, but you just accidentally gave away a spoiler to those of us reading "Heat Rises." :-O

I will anxiously anticipate Season 5 with the knowledge that those who predict a Moonlighting-like fall for this show will be proven wrong, because they have no idea how much care Andrew Marlowe and company respect these characters...

Thank you Mr.Marlowe and wife!!! Castle and Beckett did the deed! I never expected that.The time was right and done in good taste. (PG13) Im Susan Sullivans age and I sure enjoyed their love scene. Hand in hand going off to his bedroom,loved it. My lord,the way Beckett got sucker punched and beat up by Cole Maddox, how could she even think about making love! I guess Im really old. The writing and acting was a 10! Ive read all the Nikki Heat books and so often what happens in a Castle episode ends up in the books. In Heat Rises, Nikki is disgraced and suspended from the police dept. she had to hand over her shield and gun to her superiors. But because she solved the murder was reinstated(page 289) But the bad news it that Rook(her love interest like Castle) is shot and in a coma at the end of the book. I hope Castle doesnt get shot in the first episode of season 5.

Another "jump the shark" episode. It was a good series. Goodbye "Castle".

Question: Does anyone know if the release of Season 4 will be a "premium set?" It would be nice to have a little more context to a few of the scenes, like the finale scene with Castle and Beckett, it was edited close because of the time slot, I get it. Nevertheless, I would play extra just to have the full interaction between Beckett and Castle, before the fade. Please don't put a great scene in the deleted section, like in "season 3, with Castle and Kate's father." Great job again - Marlowe; this was truly a memorable season.

Castle was in *shock*. He's waited four years for words or actions like this from Kate Beckett. If you know this character at all then you know that he is very, VERY happy with this turn of events. (He just hasn't been on the journey with her that we have since their big blow-out.)

I love watching Castle,the creators and writing for the show is excellent. I just hope that the writers have a good plan for next season not to over kill the relationship with Castle and Beckett. The season finally was great and makes you want more, cant wait to see what happens next season.

Well Ausiello nailed it - the final scene was a blind item he did, and he said while the majority of the fanbase would be thrilled, there would be a few naysayers who thought it was too quick, but then there would always be complainers and haters.

Good call Ausiello!

I thought this was a perfect, breath-taking end to the season. I disagree with Paula that we all know that KB will never give up on her mother's case. While the case will undoubtedly continue, there are so many revenge-driven cops on TV that push beyond where is rational. We have all been waiting for the moment when she realises that there is more to life. And it's right in front of her. I think it shows incredible wisdom in the writers and in the character to be able to drop it when the stakes become too high. Also, it makes perfect sense to me that Espo, being from a military background, would back his leader to the hilt. I like that he and Ryan differ there. And I totally felt the passion and the connection in the final scene with C&B, I thought it was played beautifully by both actors as was the entire ep. I LOVE that Castle didn't just jump right in without first checking where she was coming from and what was going on. That shows so much integrity on his part, it says that it is not just about the physical for him, it's about everything, it's about her. Thank you Marlowe for this gutsy, gorgeous finale to a show that continues to excite and surprise!
