The future of Beckett and Castle’s relationship is in danger.
Fresh off Castle’s renewal news, season five wraps up with the ABC procedural, starring Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic, forcing its two lead characters to make a big decision. Beckett is faced with a job offer she is seriously mulling, which would put her in Washington D.C. and threatens her romantic future with Castle.
“It’s bittersweet,” actress Molly Quinn, who plays Castle’s daughter Alexis, tells The Hollywood Reporter of Monday’s season finale. “It gets to a point where Castle wants one thing and Beckett wants another, and if they can they work it out or not.”
In a chat with THR, Quinn discusses Alexis’ newfound “daredevil” streak, how her near-death experience has changed the character and what the future holds for the Castle-Beckett romance.
The Hollywood Reporter: What should we expect for Alexis in the season finale?
Molly Quinn: Alexis is trying to convince her dad that it is OK for her to take a trip to Costa Rica and her dad, of course, is very uncomfortable with that considering what happened to her earlier this season with her being kidnapped and everything. Alexis is trying to reassert her independence because after that whole experience, her dad is much more overprotective. I mean, Alexis was still shocked — she would be after that traumatic situation — but now she’s like, “Hmm, this isn’t good. I can’t let him think that we’re reverting back to being 14. I’m 19, going on 20, I need to take this trip because I can’t let my fears conquer me.”
