Castle season 8 has taken an uneven turn with Beckett, played by Stana Katic, leaving Castle, played by Nathan Fillion. The smart detective Beckett sensed danger for her novelist husband Castle if he stays with her and thus, she decided to leave.
Castle is unaware that Kate left him for his own good but he can figure out that there is no other reason. He is trying his best in the current episodes to win his love back. The showrunners have mentioned that the couple will explore their lives apart. This has created a line of worry on foreheads regarding the future status of their relationship.
Showrunner Alexi Hawley mentioned in an interview, “The reality is they’ve really been together since season five,” adding, “The wedding was last season, but as a couple they’ve been together and happy for several seasons now. For us we thought, ‘Let’s throw an obstacle in their way.’ Nobody’s getting divorced. They’re not splitting up forever.”
“Castle” season 8 spoilers suggest that Kate will be successful as a newly instated captain of the 12th Precinct. Kate has actually asked for time from Castle. She wants to find out the reality behind the people who attempted to kill her. She does not want her husband to be in danger.
Terence Paul Winter said, “She’s doing it to protect Castle, not to see if she is interested in other people or thinking maybe they went too fast or he isn’t what she wants anymore. Castle’s definitely what she wants and she’s willing to fight for it.”
The episodes already shown has hinted that the duo ends up working with each other. While Castle takes the role of a professor, Kate continues to investigate the case. It can be expected that the duo will be together at the end of “Castle” season 8.
