how do i politely ask him to slam me against a wall and make out with me
tell him you want just him
Hmm, first of all let me reject the foundation of your assumption. Fillion’s geek/nerd cred comes from playing a leading man (‘Firefly’) or villains/antagonists (‘Dr Horrible’/’Buffy the Vampire Slayer’). ‘Castle’ is his “plucky sidekick” role, though that’s not right either, as the show itself points out. He’s not the hero, but he is definitely the leading man and much more than a sidekick, he’s The Lancer if anything (though often the comic relief).
Overdone scenes with Beckett? This season? Can I have some examples, because I think if anything we’ve seen a much softer, lighter, more in-love Beckett this season than we have at any other point. Yes, this particular last episode was a dramatic, angsty Beckett-heavy ep, but that is built into the show’s DNA going back to ‘Sucker Punch’ or even earlier. All the eps that deal significantly with her mother’s murder fall into that category.
In fact if anything, I would say lately the show has attempted to give Castle/Fillion more serious and dramatic moments, partly reflecting the growth of his own character into a more serious man instead of the incessant jokester and partly as a result of the fact they’ve finally decided to tackle some backstory for him, I thought Fillion was great, very nuanced in ‘Deep Cover’ for example (though I loathe the trite and cliched SpyDaddy story they went with).
I don’t think there’s any conspiracy theory or much change here, I think the show is conforming to its own pattern, actually. This is around when in the season we get the dramatic two-parter with C/B’s lives in danger for example, and this ep basically stood in for that.
people tend to forget that the beginning s6 has heavily focused on castle….in a span of 4 eps he had a car crash, was poisoned, dealt with a hostage situation and was shot. not long after that an entire ep focused on him and Alexis solving a case. if that isn’t considered drama.
idk what is.
