This is mainly to address the post that I’ve seen going around Tumblr about how young adult authors tend to write protagonist teenage girls. I’m doing this mainly because there is an unfortunate amount of truth to this. There are also some ways to either avoid some of these or write them well….

After listening to Moffat stating earnestly that the reason she saves him is to save the love of her life even if it comes at a great personal sacrifice, I don’t know how The Doctor could have said anything other than that he loves her.
He’s a stranger to her but not only is he whispering his feelings in her ear, but he’s behaving as if he’s in love with her. As much as Amy and Rory were good friends to her, this is a woman who was kidnapped and raised by monsters with a single mission in life — murder. And here she is face to face with someone who is selflessly fighting for her when, from her perspective, he should have absolutely no reason to. He’s dying and all he’s trying to do is save her. Help her. Teach her. All this for no other reason than that he cares.
How could anyone go through life knowing they have killed the love of their life? So she saves him. She’s choosing to believe that her fate is to love him rather than murder him. Because up until this day, she believed she had no other choice. Suddenly, she is seeing an entirely different future for herself and she knows the only way to save that future is to save him — the man who loves her and who she will love. The complete opposite of everything she’s been conditioned to believe.

D’awwwwwww! This last episode was so adorable! I loved everything about it: how everyone reacted to the baby (especially Ryan, poor guy!), how Castle and Beckett tried to take care of him for one night, the one-liners, the plot twist, and how all the pieces - which seemed so weird at first - came together in the end. FANTASTIC!
Such great lines in this episode:
Beckett: “I know where babies come from, Castle. Just not this one.”
Alexis (after seeing Castle and Beckett asleep on the couch while Martha was holding the baby): “How long have I been gone?”
Alexis: “If you have two kids in a few years and I have kids, they could grow up together.”
Castle: “And it’s ruined.”
Ryan: “The baby’s due in a month - what if I’m not ready?”
Esposito: “You care. That makes you better than my Dad ever was.”
Some made me laugh out loud. Some pulled at my heartstrings. I loved the whole episode.
My only complaint? Finding out that the next episode of Castle won’t be until January. Really? After such a great episode, I don’t think I can wait that long! Guess I’ll just have to be patient (and probably stave off my Castle withdrawal by watching some reruns. ;D)
Thanks again Castle Cast and Crew for such an amazing episode. Loving your episodes, as always!
