And he does it every year!
I just thought of something. Wouldn’t it make sense for Caskett to get married on Coffee Day? I mean, coffee is their non-verbal symbol of love. Just something that crossed my mind. Can’t believe I’m only thinking of it now.
I would think the producers wouldn’t miss an opportunity like that….
International Coffee Day would be perfect. But, Monday, April 7 (4/7) would have been perfect too, and they completely ignored that.
Any idea of title?
I honestly think the episode is called “TBD” I mean, they put TBD in quotes, so maybe that’s the actual name of the episode.
They put it in quotes because it ISN’T the actual title. I don’t think we heard about the After the Storm title till a couple of weeks before the episode aired.
A pregnant detective Beckett is going to be on desk duty though. If the show stays on long enough for them to have kids, I think we’ll see a time jump through most of the pregnancy. Unless Stana herself is pregnant.
(Personally, doting fathers-to-be tend to inspire violent tendencies, but I think that’s just me.)
yea I think if they went this route at all it would be at the end of the season and the time jump that normally happens in the summer will cater to the majority of the pregnancy so we see the beginning and the end. Can’t really have Castle is Beckett is stuck on desk duty for nine months it would work for 4 episodes at most
I can’t imagine why anyone would think a pregnant detective would just be out working cases as normal. Guys, no. Exactly how many near death experiences have these characters had? Shootings, tigers, drownings, bombs, serial killers. Yep, just add baby. That’ll end well. (No.)
Expect any Caskett babies to involve a time jump.
I think, personally, it would be an interesting twist to see it - for one or two episodes. After that, it’s the same thing over and over again. Beckett being irritated because she’s on desk duty; Castle being overprotective. You can hardly build a season on that IMO.
But does anyone actually knows how it works for real life detectives who gets pregnant?! I mean we gotta have this in writing somewhere don’t we?!
Are pregnant detectives and officers really put on desk duty or only light duty? Because I think she could still go to crime scenes and stuff but not to the arrest or any other dangerous situations
No more gun-drawn takedowns, for sure.
my hair and i have a very complicated relationship </3
Nathan Fillion on Joss Whedon’s influence at Comic-Con
01. because women can’t like action or science fiction
without there being any ~female~ things tied into it.
I hate the reboot. I do. I love it for some reasons but I hate it. Arg I really can’t.
OUCH WOW WHAT FUCKING YEAR DO YOU THINK THIS IS LINDELOF
I FUCKING TRUSTED YOU MAN
~LOL HOW DO WE WOMEN? MAYBE WE SHOULD BABBY. YES BABBY GOOD IDEA, BRING WOMEN. ALL WOMEN BABBY. WOMEN DoN’T STORY OR CHARACTERS THAT IS FOR MANS. YES GOOD JOb WELL DONE MANS.
AND THIS WAS FIVE MINUTES INTO THE FIRST MEETING?
GENE AND MAJEL OUGHT TO COME THE FUCK BACK AND SLAP YOU ALL
….lmao is this a real thing
i really don’t understand where this myth that women don’t enjoy star trek came from? like, what sort of cave of delusion do you live in
who do you think dressed up for cons and published zines and drew fanart and wrote all the fanfiction and coined the term slash back when star trek was not a franchise but a little-watched sixties TV series that was cancelled after three seasons
we helped keep this thing going and we’ve been here all along, you’re just not looking
It’s been ages now, but I was an intern at a magazine when Star Trek (2009) was doing its press tour. I transcribed a similar quote from Lindelof, and in the process lost it very, very quietly in my cube. Then made my way to the reporter’s office, closed the door, and lost it loudly.
I mean, ffs. Who does he think SAVED THE SHOW? Who crafted one of the first successful letter writing campaigned? Who organized one of the first, legitimately successful TV Show-Specific cons? People who had a lot of time on their hands (in part by many of them being stay-at-home moms), and a lot of energy, and a lot of enthusiasm? Women.
Star Trek simply wouldn’t exist, much less exist as a property highly dependent on the enthusiasm of a small number of fans with highly soluble wallets — hell, modern fandom as we know it wouldn’t exist (we pre-date Star Wars after all) if it wasn’t for the geek culture women pioneered and crafted.
And him being so blind? And so dismissive at, well, frankly, the people that make his entire career, much less this specific job, possible? Man, I’m angry all over again.
Damon Lindelof is literally the biggest back of dicks around. Not only for this, but he’s a Roman Polanski apologist as well. Just a horrible, horrible travesty of a human being.
WOMEN STARTED YOUR PRECIOUS SCI-FI GENRE.
YOU WOULD HAVE NO STAR TREK WITHOUT US.
YOU WOULD HAVE NO VAST UNIVERSE TO EXPLORE WITHOUT US AND OUR WORDS AND OUR STORY AND OUR INGENUITY.
A 2010 Star Trek fandom survey that had over 5000 respondents had the fandom at 57% female, 43% male. It’s not exactly a scientific survey, but it’s better evidence than just stereotypes or “because I’m used to thinking of geek fandoms as majority male ones” assumptions.
Also, I think it’s pretty ridiculous that they were like “oh my god how do we get women to watch this?” and they never considered that their own sexist writing, focus on male heroes, having very few female characters, etc, might have anything to do with it. Nope. The best way to get women to watch is to have a birth scene where the destined hero is born! e_e
I rebloged that a while ago, but I saw it again and I still can’t get over it.
"We will not be successful in rebooting trek unless we can get women to enjoy the movie" Yeah because no women enjoyed original Trek at all, none.
Way back when the reboot first came out on dvd, I sat down to watch it with the commentary on, because I freaking love commentaries normally. Well, that little gem came just a few minutes into it, and I immediately had to turn it off and yell for a while. It made me really fucking dislike the people in charge of the reboot, and any time it came up in conversation I’d mention the dislike and my reasoning for it very vociferously.
My roommate bought me a ticket for the sequel, so I went, and of course the Spock/Uhura stuff felt totally shoehorned in as some ‘lets put in some romance to get the ladies in the seats!’ bullshit. Fuck that shit and fuck them, I’m not supporting that crap. I fucking loved Pacific Rim because they DIDN’T KISS AT THE END HOLY SHIT THANK GOD FOR ONCE I MEAN JESUSCHRIST SOMETIMES I JUST WANNA WATCH COOL SPECIAL EFFECTS AND SCIFI EXPLOSIONS WITHOUT FUCKING ROMANCE IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK.
I belong to Star Trek fan clubs and science fiction fan clubs in my home town and I help organize a science fiction convention here too, and in all the committees and executives and memberships, women outnumber men, in some cases by 80%. In other centres the same is largely true. Damon Lindelof might have realized that he had no worries as to getting female bums in seats if he’d just done some simple research.
Can I just say that I thought about this and I really hope it’s something to do with all the dangerous research that Castle did for his books.
Anyone else remember that he had some really deep connections with some mob guys?
And add that to the mob guys from the last episode, maybe he got in the middle of a fight between families and that’s an opportunity to explore all the things he did in the name of research
That’s the sanest theory I’ve heard so far.
Okay, everybody already knew that, but I think this is the spoiler queen’s way of confirming this. “dalmatian poppies” aren’t actually a kind of poppy flower. But dalmatian dogs are most commonly associated with fire departments, which I think was the clue to the significance of the red poppy. In Greek/Roman mythology the scarlet red poppy means resurrection after death. Hmm… just a thought.
Or else it’s just a picture of a field of poppies in Dalmatia; Stana was there during hiatus.
Maybe its some kind of flashback thing?
i mean, it must be. They can’t find him that early, can they?
Remember also, they don’t film the episode in order from start to finish. It could be a scene from the last 30 seconds of the episode that was filmed at this point, or for whatever other purpose.
yes, but then they wouldn’t investigate a murder together, or?
Well, they could be investigating if say, they found him in the/a previous scene and he says he knows something about who took him/where said person might be. And then the scene that was observed is the follow up and segue way into the next episode. Mostly though, I was just thinking that it didn’t necessarily have to be a scene that would go early in the episode to say they find him super soon after 6x23 picks up or that it couldn’t be ‘real time’ (vs a flashback or something).
There could be a time jump somewhere within the episode too.
