The world as we know it had just ended. Or at least it has in terms of TV couples, and even after a night’s rest to think about it, we still feel terrible. Because deep down, even though we know all of the reasons behind it, we’re devastated that Castle and Beckett broke up on Monday night’s Castle.
Let’s back up a second, shall we?
First of all, we spent years shipping these guys to even get together already. They clearly had amazing chemistry.
Then, eventually, they finally got together and all was well with the world.
Like, seriously well.
Happy, happy, happy.
After a few roadblocks they even got married — making their love for real and forever.
And if that weren’t enough they went on a pretty wicked “honeymoon.”
Basically we were all so confident in this story heading to the next level that we even started speculating about a baby.
A Caskett baby? Sign. Us. Up.
Sadly, the blissful Caskett days have been put on hold, at least for now. With new producers helming the show, they want us viewers to watch this couple “fall in love all over again.” And so in Monday night’s episode, Beckett decided to take down a conspiracy in the Attorney General’s office and broke up with Castle in order to protect him.
So yeah, we were pretty devastated.
I really don’t get THAT #Castle ending….I’m like ??? WTF is going on ???

To be fair, we DO see how this shakes up the story and puts some needed real-life angst into the show. But we also can’t be blamed for wanting to see them work it out ASAP. Not just so that they can be cute together, but because no one solves crimes together quite like they do.
