Interviewer: How do you feel knowing that you’re the inspiration for a character like Kate Beckett? She’s a strong woman, working in a men’s job that has made her way in that world. What was your reaction when Andrew told you about creating a show like Castle?

Terri: Super flattered. I love the way I look through Andrew’s eyes. I am honored that he considers me his muse, AND, he is mine. When I read his pilot for Castle, I was blown away, and the most romantic part is, when the pilot got picked up, he told me he wanted us to make the show together. He says I bring the “sparks.” (x)

Andrew: It’s a tough scene (the interrogation room in 1x01 btwn Kate & Rick), because we’ re trying to establish both characters. We’re also trying to establish an element of antagonism, and sparks here. - Andrew Marlowe 1x01 Castle commentary



Top 10 Underrated Castle moments

requested by musingfan

(turns on booming narrator voice)

  • The conversation between Kate and Alexis.
  • Handholding between Beckett and Castle in Target.
  • Wedding excitement shared between the boys and Kate.
  • Montgomery and the team sing “The Piano Man”.
  • Hilarious moment when Ryan hints about their relationship.
  • A precious hug during a stressful situation.
  • One of my favorite moments in ‘Veritas’.
  • Relieved hug in the library between Castle and Beckett.
  • Kissing the ‘boo-boo’.
  • "God, I love this goofball."





I appreciate Montgomery’s order of priorities.

Especially when it’s Beckett’s slimy ex representing them.

If the FBI has jurisdiction over child abduction case, why weren’t they called in during Murder Most Fowl when the boy was taken from the park?

Because sometimes you need an ex to stir up plot, and sometimes you need to see Castle and Beckett walking through the precinct with their son—ah, the kidnapped kid.

This is so sad now that we know he never makes it to the wedding. Nope too many feels.

That… I… why did that never cross my mind… the painful parallel… ugh
