You know what? I really hope Kate thinking of taking the job has NOTHING to do with Castle not being serious about her. 'Cause if that's the reason why she's considering taking that job, I would kill someone. Because in my mind, that's not a valid reason.

I hope so too. There are perfectly legitimate reasons for her to consider it. And just the possibility would be a challenge for her and Castle's relationship, so they wouldn't need the extra fake drama of "she's not sure about him." So much of their relationship now is based on them working together, so I'd actually be really interested in seeing the show take on the question of what they would be to each other if they weren't working together anymore. So, yes to the storyline, but no to any stupid reasons for it. :D

I would love to see her take the job and see them work apart but still be together. I think it would definitely pose a complicated s6 as AM said and it would be interesting to watch. There's so much potential there!

It would be like Grey's where Cristina is away from the hospital for awhile but returns a few eps later.

I don't see AM would go that road, the chance is slim.

Besides from the whole "Family vs Career" debate, which most of the fans were discussing now, I think AM won't go that road because of "trust".

Beckett is right in TSATQ, Castle didn't trust her. Castle had trust issue. He had no problem trusting Beckett, professionally. But he didn't trust Beckett as much when it comes to personal or relationship issues. He won't tell her much about himself. He shut people out when the problem is personal. The best example is "Hunt" and "Target", which Castle went to Paris alone to save Alexis. While some people may say Castle went rouge because he was worried and desperated , but I think it also implies that Castle didn't trust Beckett that would save Alexis in time. He got burnt so many times in the past, from Kyra, to Meredith, and possibly Beckett. (especially the secrets they kept from each other) Castle need to learn, learn to trust Beckett, to open up to her.

Long distance relationship is not easy. It requires high level of trust. They need to work through lots of issues,temptation, jealousy, intimacy. No way it would work for Caskett in their current relationship status, when the image of Vaughn kissing Kate was still burnt into Castle's mind. If so, they would break up eventually. Castle just start to learn how to trust Beckett enough to open up to her, and suddenly he had the trust to start a long term relationship with her? That's a HUGE character growth, a huge leap, and it is rare for AM to do that.

But I think it would happen in the later seasons, especially when AM revisit the JB case. As Bracken has decided to run for presidency, it would required federal level of resources to take him down. Since AM announced that he would revisit the case next yr, I think it would be a good chance for them to start long term relationship, as Castle had time to build his trust with Beckett, and they know they are on the same page of their relationship. They would still have issues, but they will be closer, stronger than what they're now. The long distance relationship would sound realistic and convincing.

But still, there is still a chance of starting a long distance relationship in this season finale. As Castle said, "Any relationship that lasts longer than a breath mint is gonna have challenges, but if a relationship doesn’t work out, it’s usually not because of the challenges. It’s usually because the relationship wasn’t strong enough to begin with.", and "if two people believe in something, really believe, anything even the impossible is possible " We know how much AM love foreshadowing......

Besides, AM said "it would potentially change everyone". Why "Potentially"?? There is a chance that it won't happen? I think this incident reminds them how easy it would be for them to be separated. For Castle, Beckett, and the gang. The time they spent together is precious, and they should not waste it. Although it also would be AM's excellent skill of teasing, no revealing any spoilers on Kate's decision.

FYI, Christina broke up with Owen before she went away to another hospital. I really don't want Caskett to break up.
