TV GUIDE: Matt's TV Week in Review: Game-Changer Edition

May 11, 2012
by Matt Roush

With season finales, cliffhangers and reality-competition showdowns abounding as the TV season nears its end, here are some of the turning points that caught my attention...

... STORMING THE CASTLE: A major event in "shipper" history, as Castle finally brings "Caskett" (Castle-Beckett, for the uninitiated) together in a blistering emotional clinch, but only after Beckett resigns at work (for now) and Castle Deletes Her File (how symbolic). She's furious at him for keeping her in the dark the whole last year over the ongoing threat to her life, and he's fed up with her stubbornness, even after openly declaring his love for "the most remarkable, maddening, challenging, frustrating person I've ever met." But after what I call her Vertigo moment — watch the first scene of that Hitchcock classic, and you'll understand — during the rooftop chase for the sinister Cole Maddox, she has her epiphany. While hanging to life by her fingertips, she didn't care that the bad guy got away this time. "All I could think about was you. I just want you," she says. And they're off, satisfying fans' needs at long last, as Castle gazes at the bullet scar on her chest, and they kiss, they smile, they hold hands as they walk out of camera range for some much-needed privacy. Guess she'll fill the void left by his daughter Alexis, who in her valedictory graduation speech paid tribute to the people who "are our solid ground, our North Star, and the small clear voices in our hearts that will be with us always." Most would agree she's leaving her dad in pretty good hands...
