5x24 - Watershed (Season Finale) - Promotional Photos



"Watershed" - In the Season Finale, an interview with a high-profile federal law enforcement agency forces Beckett to reconsider what she wants out of her job -- and out of her relationship with Castle. Meanwhile, the body of a young woman is found floating inside the water tank of a skid row flop house, but as the team investigate, they discover that her final resting place is just one of many strange things about her death, on "Castle," MONDAY, MAY 13.

  1. Oh those damn swings again! Except this time they are sitting facing opposite directions. Symbolic? Hmmm...

  2. Anyone see the symbolism here? Facing in opposite directions on the swingset?

  3. I'm starting to feel a little uneasy about this finale. You are both right about the symbolism. Does facing opposite directions equate to them wanting different things and/or going separate ways. I still have faith in Marlowe, but I'm really not quite sure if it's going to be all rainbows and butterflies during the hiatus. I do believe it will set us up for a wonderful Season 6 but I don't know how many of us will survive it if they break them up in the finale.

    1. I think that means that there going in opposite directions meaning they will breakup. In still she professes her love for him and in the finale they are breaking up what happened? Because of Marlowe i will no longer watch bad storytelling.I hope the fans revolt and voice there displeasure with Marlowe and ABC and i hope the castle fans dont watch and show Marlowe how he destroyed a great love story and i hope the ratings are so bad that they cancel the show.

    2. Hey, don't judge before you have the answers. Give Marlowe some credit.

      Just wait and see. =)

    3. The whole sitting opposite directions thing doesn't necessarily equate to going separate ways. As @Chaltimbanque pointed out, they are facing each other as well. I think this is the first time that they talked about their relationship without the subtext, just talk things out, speak the truth.

      But since Castle was the one sitting on the swing set first looking angry and serious, I guess it happens after Kate dropped the bomb shell of considering leaving the 12th, and Castle didn't take it well. He stormed out from the precinct, like he did in Secret Santa, and sit on the swing, or Kate called him, asked to meet him at the swing set and talk.

      From the first few photos, Castle talked to Espo nervously in a crime scene, only relax a bit until Kate arrived. I think this is the moment when Kate had an interview when Castle got the call, but Castle can't locate Kate because he didn't know about the interview. That's why Castle looked so angry in the swing set, because Kate is in a relationship with him, but she didn't tell him anything about the interview and the job offer, he was stunt as the others.

      I don't think they will break up. Having Scott Paulin as a guest star again could means some serious talk. I have faith in AM , and I think these photos are taken from the first 10-15 mins of the ep. My guesses are all speculations, and I believe AM will give us an emotional and memorial ride, let Caskett decide their future, knowing what they want from each other,and Caskett would be ok at the end, bring them closer than ever.

    4. OMG chillax!!!! You're assuming things of which no one has any assurance. Take a deep breath. Dang, talk about bandwagon fans. Marlow is mirroring a REAL relationship...with all its ups and downs. If it were all ups, full of fluffy bunnies and candy and rainbows, it would be boring after a while and ratings would tank. THAT'S the Moonlighting curse. The bumps in the road are what make relationships interesting.

      Delete
    5. Exactly. Plus, Stana Katic did say herself that they would get even more closer than before, after some bumps and some high-stake stuff...

      Why would she lie? =)

      Delete
    6. Sorry, I just looked at the photos, and my brain automatically worked out all the possible scenarios.

      But I do believe they will be ok after the bumps and stake, ups and downs in the ep.

      Delete
    7. Actually the moonlighting curse was breaking them up after getting together.

      Delete
    8. The appearance by Kate's dad could also mean she goes to him for advice. Her parents met the same way--at work. Her dad waited three years to ask Joanna out. He regretted waiting so long. (Jim tells Castle this in a cut scene from season 3 episode: Knockdown.)

      Delete
    9. Actually, no. The Moonlighting curse was not doing much with their storyline once they got together. The ratings started to tank quickly and so they broke them up in order to try to shake things up a bit. But it was too little too late.

  4. OMG those swings, and Castle is waiting for her there... I'm starting to worry now. I don't know what I will do with myself during the hiatus...

  5. While I did notice the symbolism of them facing opposite directions...I'd like to point out that they are facing each other as well.

    As in, no more eluding, no more escaping, talking things through, speaking the truth. All of it leading them to the same point, just like, well, a watershed.

    1. good way to look at it! i agree!!!

      Delete
    2. That crossed my mind as well, but technically, since they are sitting side-by-side, they are not facing each other...but rather opposite directions.

      That said, I like your positive and hopeful mentality and choose to maintain my psyche in the same mode. :-)

      Delete
    3. They may not face each other, but this is a caption of a moment, and I think when they talk, they will looked at each other.

      (From the photo Kate is looking at him, and Castle is seems to be talking, but not looking at Beckett. I think there is a possibility that he is talking sth about himself. )

      Delete
  6. Damn swings again...

    My first thought was "oh, they are facing opposite directions" and "Castle does NOT look happy in the one where she is walking towards him".

    We shall see what happens, hopefully that is early in the episode :p

  7. Looks like Castle is opening up to Beckett when they are both sitting on the swings. Honestly? No matter how scared or anxious I might be, I can't imaging AM breaking them up. He knows he would loose a lot of viewers PLUS after doing "Still" where you could practically feel their love for each other, it wouldn't make ANY sense AT ALL to break'em up... At least IMHO...

    Remember THE key word: ALWAYS :D

    For those who haven't seen it yet: ENJOY THE RIDE - IT IS AN ALMOST PERFECT EPISODE...
    And for those who have seen it: watch in on TV to keep ratings high!!!

    Cheers from Hamburg

    1. I am not saying this as a caskett shipper I am saying this actual viewer who watched everything a break up defeats the purpose of the show the show works with castle following beckett at the 12th take away that you have nothing and I am sure marlowe knows this I Know promo pics only tell part of the story while I am a bit nervous I also excited to see how it plays out

    2. That's exactly what I think, Karen!! ����

    3. AM said "But what we’re trying to do is find honest organic storytelling that’s more complicated than ‘should we be worried’..." Now, imo, breaking them up would be quite opposite to "organic, don't you think? :)

      Delete
    4. actually, organic storytelling should kind of concern people. Organic writing (or storytelling) is basically just writing without knowing where everything will end up in the end. They search for the flow as the go along. If it works, it works. If it doesn't, you have the option of tossing it out.

      On the flip side, AWM did say that once they kind of knew where they wanted to end up at, it became a lil' easier.

      Delete
  8. Ditto that.

    Organic means evolution, plausible growth, in the good sense of the word. Maybe through pain - heck, even probably through pain - but growth nonetheless.

    1. In organic storytelling though, you write without a map or a general direction. (Too many advanced fiction classes under my belt..) So, you just write until you find something that works. Which can lead you down a dark path. In novel writing, it's not a problem because the opportunity exists for you to fix it. In TV, it could be disastrous.

      However, AWM did say they about 7 eps out they had a general idea of where they wanted to end up--which is not a bad thing. At least they have a general direction and try things to see if they work, they test it.

      Given that relationships are anything but outlined, organic story telling is the best way to go.

  9. Ok ok ok. I *may* have jumped to conclusions earlier. (I blame it on having a horrible day at work!) You just made me feel much better and more optimistic about the end result of this episode. Organic means ups and downs. They've needed to talk things out for quite some time now, and I'm really hoping Castle opens up some more to Kate in this episode. He's still been elusive at times in terms of opening up about his past. Hoping we can dig a little deeper in future episodes. I think that will allow Beckett to fully commit to him. So who here thinks that not only will they stay together but that there will be a proposal?!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Maybe They just need a little time away from each other. Thinking about things they want from life...i think that's a big cliffhanger this season - maybe he can't give her what she wants right now and in the 6th season he is going to get her back!just an idea.-but I'm really excited for this episode.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Here is my take on the swings...did anyone stop to think that they are sitting like that so they can see each other's faces, look each other in the eye? That is why I think they are sitting that way. I for one have the utmost faith in Marlowe. If he does break them up it won't last long.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Agreed; previous teasers said they'd end the season closer than ever, right? I can't imagine them breaking up or even the notion of separation. They've done that twice already for a summer - been there done that.

    Marlowe is too talented of a writer to go down that rabbit hole.

  13. Edward PODURGIEL I have to compleely disagree with you. first off i thought that was the rudest thing you could ever write on a FAN PAGE because clearly you are not a fan. YOu are assuming the worst without even seeing it. So do everyone a favor and stop watching the show and writing awful reviews.

    Now to my personal opinion. Everyone is really worried about the swingset scene. I think it is very smart to have them facing opposite directions, it leaves it open to a more honest discussion and allows CAstle to open up about how he feels and what he is going through, All Beckett wants to know is that he is their for her (which she knows he is just to verbalize it). So I like that they are facing face to face. Plus it is easier to kiss when you are like that. Oh I forgot to mention that the swingset is a symbolism of great things to come in their relationship. It was where Castle came beck to the precinct, it was where Beckett went to think after resigning her job. its where she went before coming to rick and finally making her heart happy. the swingset is a symbolism of wonderful things.

    Also I know there is not going to be a breakup. Since most are thinking that it would be way to easy to go down that road, not to mention they these two really do love each other, not just as intimate lovers but as individuals. YOu cant go through all that with someone and fall out of it that quickly. THese two care so much about each other that it hurts, and I can see it in both of them. They have cheated death on a number of occasions, and they have always been eacho thers best friend. they ahve too much riding for them to give it up. They havent fought this hard to get this far and throw it away,. It would make this love story a lie and it isnt.

    I believe that they will get this left fielder, and over come anything that comes their way. they always have, and I have no doubt in my mind that they will get through this. Yes they will hit bumps in the road, but its how you come out of it and how you got through it that makes you stronger together.

    This finale will be amazing and it will leave us only wanting more, and I cant wait to see it. I know we will get a stronger deeper more amazing commitment from them and they will be a force to be wreckened with. There is no way that they can survive without knowing they have each others backs. They are in it to win it, and they will get their happy 1 year anniversary.

    I am so looking forward to his. I cant wait to see what andrew has up his sleeve. I know it will be great and I cant wait to see where he is going to go in season 6. I hope there are others out their who hope to see a season 6 like me. I am way excited for it. Bring it on.

    Baileyanna castle/caskett fan for life.

    1. I'm not a Castle/Beckett relationship (I refuse to put labels on things), but everyone's assuming the swing set scene is towards the end. It could be earlier on. Who knows.

  14. do you ppl know a Derrick Storm series is coming up . Will it have any impact on season 6 as well as 5-24 ?

  15. Somehow I feel more reassured today from these pics than AM's coy interviews that only serve more angst to fans and viewers..Hence a picture speaks a 1000 words and we got 12.

    Not sure abt the obvious symbolism w the swings or we're juz reading too much into it. U know like the martha ring thing..coz' I'm nt gd w foreshadowin interpretations usually but even I got that. Maybe it's AM focusing all our attention in his left hand that he does not want us to know what's coming in his right hand that is the bombshell...

  16. Did everyone forget that twice Beckett gave Rick some thing and he promised her he would give her something better each time? He is yet to give her any jewelry.
    It's time for jewelry

    1. The bracelet Beckett has been wearing is a gift from Castle - the one she wears along with the watch on her left arm.

    2. The watch belonged to her father. When did you say Castle gave her a bracelet?

      Delete
    3. On twitter someone from the show said that he did. Also, look a picture 4 'Watershed' you will see the bracelet clearly on her left arm.

      Delete
  17. Yes there is a symbolic. They can see each otherer more easier.
    And can I just say that it's where that everything kind of start and became something to Kate.

    For ones who really search for a reason, it's a way to make them think about what direction take.
    I find it nice to see this place in those pics... without the rain.

    I actually wait all the week end to see something new, but when I saw Watershed season FINAL pics... that make me realise that we're more closer than ever. Real fan will come out

  18. Seamus teased that there will be lots of nudity in the finale. Maybe we will have some sex scene between Caskett? Or some shot of the boys in their swimming suit?

    He also teased there will be a gentle cliffhanger. So it may not be as emotional as AM described?

    (You can find Seamus's interview on wetpaint)

    2. maybe the nudity is the reason why Castle and Espo were on dun-glasses as some of the promotion pic shown. :) xdd~~

  19. people chill! isn't that the way they sit in the precinct when Beckett is at her desk and Castle is in his chair, it makes it easier conversation wise, the symbolism of the swings means issue solving, but put some faith in Marlowe he knows how to yank our chain and ALWAYS delivers, we lasted 5 seasons we can last 5 more.

    1. I'm gonna be a smart ass and say Castle generally sits on her left side in the precinct... LOL. But yes. Swings = issue solving.

  20. AM won't break them up, for as dumb as he is....he isn't a fool. This just means we will spend a longer summer than usual, and I might spend such a long one that I don't return. The story telling has a lot of consistency to show, after the last four of this year. I think AM will be short a few viewers when he starts next year. But again, they'll be together because AM isn't a fool.
