The the case takes Kate back to an old work place where she did some modeling as a 19 year old.  The same editor in chief, Matilda King, is still in charge of the most popular magazine Modern Fashon and the one whose clutches Kate escaped from.  One thing leads to another and Matilda gets Kate to model a wedding dress.  At the same time she is admiring herself in the mirror, Rick calls saying the can get a booking at their reception hall of choice but Kate hesitates and they lose the date.  Kate just could not get past the sorrow of her mom not being there for her big day.

NUMBER 9.

S2.E13. Had to kill Coonan to save Castle

CASTLE - "Sucker Punch" - While investigating the death of an Irish mobster, Beckett and Castle uncover a local turf war that may be connected to both a late-night infomercial guru and an international drug smuggling operation. But the case turns agonizingly personal when evidence emerges that the killer they're chasing may have had a hand in Beckett's mother's murder, on "Castle," MONDAY, JANUARY 18 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.

Finally tracking down her mother’s killer to being someone named Rathbun, Castle ponies up 100 Large to catch him, just to realize the killer was Dick Coonan after all.  Seeing his impending doom, Coonan grabs Castle and slowly drags him to the elevator.  Kate got a small opening and shot Coonan, then tried doggedly to revive him before he passed away.

NUMBER 8.

S6.E2. Castle slowly dying from poison
imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

So Kate is now FBI and trying to maintain a distance relationship with her fiancé.  Except her bethrowed is virtually a nine year old on a sugar rush so of course he HAD to go to DC and HAD to poke his nose into a federal case and HAD to be exposed to a deadly toxin.  Now Kate and Rachel need to find the bad guys and get an antidote.  Good thing for Castle that Kate is REALLY smart and knew the difference between an antidote and an anecdote.  Otherwise he would be slowly dying while she told him humorous stories 

NUMBER 7.

S5 E24 and S6.E1. Thinking Castle was going to break up with her

imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

At at the end of season 5, the Caskett relationship was rudderless as Kate was super tempted by Eric Vaughn who she was serving as a body guard.  They had a terrific moment of Love in STILL just for Castle to flounder to the question of relationship status then Kate interviewing and  offered the FBI  job without consulting Castle.  When Castle said we have to talk, Kate expected the worst fearing she would lose Rick forever.

NUMBER 6.

S3.E3. Mike Royce breaks her heart

imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

In season three we get a glimpse of some of Beckett’s backstory.  Mike Royce was her first partner and possibly the first man she truly loved.  He understood her passion, her drive her obsession in solving her mom’s murder.  Which made his betrayal all the more painful to Kate as she had to bring him to justice.

NUMBER 5.

S3.E24. Montgomery killed for her

imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

Hal Lockwood escapes putting a huge target on Beckett.  beckett and Castle get real close to finding out the truth when Espo and Ryan find out Montgomery was the third cop. Montgomery begs Castle to get Beckett to back off. Then  Lockwood gives Roy an ultimatum but The Caltaun had other ideas, leading Kate to the airstrip for the ultimate showdown.

NUMBER 4.

S4.E23. Kicks Castle out for withholding a lead.

They just made made great progress as a couple in the previous episode.  Kate gets a lead on Cole Maddox who plans to kill both Kate and Mr. Smith.  Smith contacts Castle again imploring him to settle down Beckett and walk away from this.  As he begs her, he tells her about Smith and that us when she loses it and possibly Castle and she allows him to walk through the door and out of her apartment.

NUMBER 3.

S6.E23. Castle run off side of road… Car in flames

imageimageimageimage

imageimageimageimageimage

Now I know I am in the minority here by saying I love this episode.  I thought the interplay of Kate being already married and all the fun getting her divorce from Rogan  was excellent.  And being Castle, the wedding could not come off easy so the cliffhanger ending was appropose.  But it was truly heart wrenching for the bride to go from the most happy place in the world to sheer hell.

NUMBER 2.

S2.E24. Breaks up with Demming then left hanging by Castle

imageimageimageimageimage

CASTLE - "A Deadly Game" - Nothing is as it seems when Castle and Beckett investigate what appears to be the assassination of an intelligence operative. Meanwhile, Beckett's romance with Demming threatens her relationship with Castle, forcing them to confront their feelings for each other, on the Season Finale of "Castle," MONDAY, MAY 17 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.

Oh man, this scene got me.  I was heartbroken for Kate.  To come so far (with a reality che k from Espo) as to know she wants to give a relationship with Castle a try.  Demming gets dumped in the process all for not being Rick!  Kate summons up her courage to confront Castle with the suggestion they get together when she takes her first shot to the heart, Castle shows up with Gina, thinking Kate was going away with Tom.  I felt so bad for Beckett, she seemed crushed like she lost her first true love

NUMBER 1.

How does one make her peace with impending death?  Well the help of her boyfriend took some of the sting out until it became doomsday.  Kate tries to be strong, sending Castle away and calling her dad.  I wonder if she was just as grateful that she got voicemail for Jim.  Her goodbyes complete, she steels herself for her destiny.

 

So that is it, please send me your comments, Bronx cheers, suggestions!

 

Tomorrow is a new installment of Flashback Friday (or is it Friday Flashback?)

Last note, if you have a topic you would like to see blogged about, please put it in the comments block!  I would love fresh idea!
