NUMBER 10

S4 E1 –  RISE

Whirlwind of emotions, feels he put her in the crosshairs, then Kate tells him not to call her, she’ll call him, then seeing her at book signing

NUMBER 9

S3 E17 –  COUNTDOWN

Seeing Kate go back with Josh (twice) after almost dying together twice.  First he sees her embrace him after they were saved from the freezer, right after Kate declared they still haven’t chance.  Second is at the precinct when surprises her just when she was ready to leave with Castle . 

NUMBER 8

S2 E23-24 –  OVERKILL / A DEADLY GAME

(Also 24)Seeing Beckett and Demming kissing, solidifying what he wished was not true before, Demming has replaced him in Kate’s heart.  He even brings her the morning coffee, usually Castle’s job.  In 24, hearing Kate was actually going away with Tom for the weekend and not working.

NUMBER 7

S8 E5 –  THE NOSE

This episode broke my heart more so than S8E2 when Kate left. Why?  Well. Castle was trying to work his way back to her and at the end go episode 4 she seemed to give him a glimmer of hope when talking about the coffee.  The in EP 5 she says she was meaning to call him and of course, Castle gets worked up only to receive the ultimate deflation. Ni personally was not ready for her to say ” I want to pick up the rest of my things”.  This to me was as bad as the dejection Kate felt at the end of S2E24

NUMBER 6

S5 E24 –  WATERSHED

[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”94″ gal_title=”Cc-06″]

After the stellar job Kate and Rick did on the drone killing, Kate gets a chance to interview with the FBI which she jumps at, especially after Castle fails to clarify their relationship status.  She flues own and has a killer interview.  Later while preparing dinner, Castle moves Kate’s blazer and her airline ticket falls out.  Castle is devistated that she made this life choice without him. 

NUMBER 5

S4E19 –  47 SECONDS

After working all season at developing a relationship, a bomb goes off at a protest rally and it gives Castle pause, and with Martha’s wisdom, prepares to finally tell Kate how he feels.  Of course as he starts. Espo interrupts.  The the fateful interrogation where Castle finds out Kate knew everything from when she was shot 

NUMBER 4

S8E2- XX

[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”51″ gal_title=”Cc-04″]

Probably the most controversial ending, topping even. S6 E23.  Poor Kate, they capture all the assassins but finds Rita following her. Kate will pursue LokSat, but Rita warns her that further murders will be on her conscience sp she breaks Cadtle’s heart by leaving him thinking she is protecting him,

NUMBER 3

S5 E15&16. TARGET and HUNT

[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”78″ gal_title=”Cc03-2″]

 

Egyptian tycoon Anwar El-Masri’s daughter Sara, but also Alexis, whom she met at a lecture. FBI agent Harris’s sole trace, obtained only because Becket ‘turned away’ from Castle slightly torturing the wounded van driver, runs dead. Being a good father with resources, he will go to all ends to save Alexis.

NUMBER 2

S6 E17. BELLY OF THE BEAST

[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”77″ gal_title=”Cc2″]

Beckett comments how nice it is to lounge around so late in the day when she gets called for a special mission to assist narcitics.  She needs to impersonate a Russian drug dealer who recently was arrested and hospitalized.  Needless to say it goes sideways and Castle is totally beside himself. 

NUMBER 1

S3.E24. KNOCKOUT

[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”76″ gal_title=”Cc1″]

Kate gets shot.  Castle kept a secret from Kate which leads to a huge fight and a split of their partnership.  Before he can make amends, Maddix guns her down.  Castle tries to revive her and expresses his love but probably too late.
