We were biting our nails waiting for the ‘Castle’ series finale. Can you believe that it finally ended? Couldn’t catch the episode, but still dying to know what happened to Castle and Beckett? Don’t worry; we live blogged the whole thing!
After eight seasons, Castle has sadly come to an end. We thought things were bad enough when Stana Katic announced that she/Beckett would be leaving at the end of Season 8 — and then ABC had to cancel the series! After seeing the promo for this final episode, we knew that this would be a can’t-miss event. It wouldn’t be Castle if they didn’t go out with a bang! Click through for our recap!
After a season teasing the matchup, Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett finally battled LokSat! But not before meeting his right hand man, Mr. Flynn.Vikram has been working hard to determine LockSat’s location, and the mystery man finally messages Beckett for a meet up. It’s going down!
Castle and Beckett stake out the site where they’re supposed to see LokSat, and it becomes clear that they’ve been set up when a major firefight ensues. The amount of shells being dropped in this battle is insane.
It looks like it’s definitely the end for Castle and Beckett, until his old pal Mason comes in to save the day…in a Korean BBQ taco truck. Seriously! Mason drives them to safety, blasting a few rounds at the enemies. He knows about their problems…because of reasons. Good enough for Castle! Caskett has a deep discussion about what needs to happen next: getting Martha and Alexis into hiding.
Next thing you know, Castle wakes up strapped to a gurney in a secret CIA lab. You read that right.Mr. Flynn gives Castle an IV drip of truth serum to get the names of everyone who knows about LokSat. And FINALLY, LokSat makes his appearance! Surprise — it’s Mason! Who would’ve thought? Mason/LokSat orders Mr. Flynn to kill Castle, and tells him he’s on his way to kill Beckett.
“Everything ends in tragedy. Even an epic love story like yours,” Mr. Flynn tells Castle as he’s about to deliver a fatal dose of poison in his IV. At the last moment, the NYPD squad busts in and shoots him. Not before Mason picks up Beckett, though. But being the badass she is, Beckett knew about him the whole time, and foils his plot. The whole precinct can take a breather, because this doozy of a case has finally been solved. Well, it’s not over for Caskett just yet.
The series ends in a breathtaking, horrifying scene that had us fearing the worst. Caleb Brown is hiding in Castle and Beckett’s apartment, and shoots them both. Beckett, struggling to breath, crawls over to Castle, and they hold hands, gasping for air. But it was a big old false alarm! We cut away to a scene set seven years later. Castle and Beckett have a whole gaggle of kids, and live happily ever after. You knew they couldn’t end this epic love story tragically!
