Hi all, 

So far in the story we know that Richard Castle is in love with with Kate Beckett. But is Kate in love him? I know, i know we have the looks, the smiles, the kiss, and the lies but so far we have not gotten a confirmation.  

 

Stana did say that Kate is in love with Castle in her interviews, the problem is the word AM use in his is “really care for”. So..I'm wondering whether Kate at this point (S3E11) thinks/knows that she is in love with RC or is she unsure? 

Because it could be at this point she does care about him and like him, like him. But does she love him right back? 

 

PS: About AM interview if he did say that KB  is in love with RC somewhere can you guys link. I might have missed the interview.

I think that she is absolutely in love with him.

 

However, I don't know if she realizes it completely yet because until now she hasn't even let herself open herself to that possibility.  I think she recognizes that she has strong feelings for him and that he is the one she is willing to break down her wall for. 

She knows that he makes her laugh, is very loyal to her, supports her, is her best friend and partner and I would go so far as to say she thinks of him as family.  And she knows how he feels about her. 

The wall is coming down and when it does I think that she will fully recognize the feelings she has as love. 

As frustrating as the waiting is, I love that she puts Castle in a different category than any other guy.  That she isn't in a true relationship with him because she knows there is something different there.

Can't wait til she figures it out.

She is insanely in love with him.  She has been since before they ever met. 

Her feelings for Castle started with his books and how they pulled her from the difficulties of dealing with her mothers murder.  Her annoyance with him in the beginning, IMO, was all about how he turned out to not quite be the guy she had imagined he was, from his books….yet, there was a strong attraction.  Why on earth would she continue to put up with him, if not?  Yes she did try on a couple occasions to get him booted, but that was out of frustration, not a real desire to have him gone and out of her life.  The level of emotion and respect she feels for him, is what scares her.  She's run from it as hard and as fast as she can, but she realizes it isn't going away, nor is he.  He has gone out of his way to prove himself to her, to prove he is someone she can count on and trust.  He has never abandoned her, no matter what she has thrown at him.  His character and charm have slowly worn her down and she can no longer deny what she has felt for him all along.

 

Those are my 2 cents on the issue :)

I think you nailed it.

He needs to do more than just kiss her!  They both need to throw caution to the wind and let loose of all that pent up frustration and angst.  BTW, I think Castle is waiting for her.  The ball has been in her court since the ILY and she now has to make the next move.  He's already kissed her (although she did kiss him back), and he's already said ILY.  It's her turn.

I think whatever happens next, it will be coming from her and I don't think it will be a simple peck on the cheek neither.  At least I hope not.  :)  I think something big will happen, but afterward, they realize they need to back up a bit and procede slowly, figuring things out as they happen.  Keeping it honest and true to who they both are.

What you said works for me!  I don't care which one of them initiates it, though I agree with you it's Beckett's turn, and sooner is better. 

I like your second paragraph a lot.  I wouldn't be surprised if you have it exactly right.  It's at consistant with how AM has been developing their relationship.  But there's no going back from that either.  It's another irreversable click forward.

She's definitely “in love with him” and loves him (not the same thing)–both of which I think are needed for a long-term relationship.  She's been attracted to him from the start, has loved him as her best friend since at least early Season 3, and I think has been “in love” since at least the infamous “Knockdown” kiss.  Yes, that kiss was intended for cover (but really, really? were Rick's motives that pure or was he seizing the day?), but I think it blew up in their faces, and Kate kissing Rick back was all about being lost in the moment. Love2Love

 

I think her face in the bank vault scene in “Cops and Robbers” was so revealing, as was the way she caressed his lapel (that was so sweet!).  Darn Martha anyway and her crappy timing.  Tongue 

Kate's pushing through some major personal barriers in her life in order to be with Rick in a healthy relationship, and it's hard, painful work.  Heck yeah, she loves him!

lol….. ok here’s the thing about the responses. Yeah, we as the audience know that Beckett is already head over heels in love with castle. But my question is more on whether Beckett the character knows that she is already in love with the guy? 

 

Or is the character still in denial on the love part and Castle is this guy who she really cares about, a guy who she really really like and wants to be with still. 

 

There is absolutely  no doubt in my mind that she is already in love with him. But based on the story line has the character accepted that she’s already in love with the guy.  During some interview in end season 2 Stana said something along the line that you really really like the guy and you think that he feels the same way and you wanted to explore that. I can’t say its a conclusive thing that Beckett knows that she is already in love with Castle.

No need to apologize. I think you said (typed, actuallySmile) it quite well. I do not think the character of Kate Beckett would admit out loud that she is already in love with Rick. However, I do think she is still struggling in silence with her subconscious yearnings, and is almost ready to admit to herself. I think she will take longer to admit it to anyone else, particularly Rick. He will probably be the last to hear it spoken out loud.

Ok I'm from Australia and I've only seen up to the end of season 3 so I don't have the insights you all have from season 4 to work with here. Here's my two cents worth

Castle is absolutely, totally in love with Kate. We all heard him say it at the end of S3 but we all knew it before then. In the beginning he was quite the smitten kitten with her and saw her as 'the absolute conquest' but once he got to know her he really fell in love. There's nothing he wouldn't do for her. Watching his face whenever Kate was with Dr Motorcycle Boy said it all.

Kate, deep down she loves Castle as much as Castle loves her, she's just not ready to admit it to herself and is spending every ounce she has denying it to herself and everyone around her. IMO maybe she feels if she gives in to her feelings for him she will lose him like she lost her mother. I also think she probably loved Royce a lot more than she ever admitted and losing him first as her mentor, then her friend when he betrayed her and then when he was murdered directly affects her relationship with Castle too as the hurt cut very deep. I don't think she could face the prospect of possibly losing Castle in one way or another. I think the kiss was a big revelation for Kate. She had had a major crush on Castle long before they ever met and then was surprised by him in the pilot with his naughty boy ways. Castle surprises her even more now though, in a good way, as she knows who he is. He's always there, he's loyal, he loves Alexis and Martha, he's her best friend and above all she trusts him implicitly. I think it surprised her more than anyone when she kissed him back. I think she was secretly as 'amazed' by the kiss as Castle was but again would never admit it. On the other hand she had been waiting for him to make the first move because she never would because that would require letting her guard down. Hopefully it won't take nearly losing Castle for her to realise that she can't lose him and has to be with him.

I'm really looking forward to the changing dynamic between Castle and Kate when they do get together(eventually). I honestly think the relationship will work very well because they are soul mates, they've spent so much time getting to know each other properly and have gone through so much together. Like any relationship they will have their moments of tension and ups and downs but it will be interesting to see how they both grow together as a couple. I don't see the 'Moonlighting Curse' being an issue here.

Can't wait til she figures it out.

I agree completely.  There's a quote I heard a while ago in a movie that goes something like this: It's easy to love someone. The hard part is having the courage to let that person love you back.  I think that's what is holding Beckett back.  She knows she loves him, but she's afraid of letting him into her heart entirely for several reasons: she's been hurt, his history, his ex-wives, possibly the fact that he has a daughter, etc. 

It seems her therapist will help her get through it all though.  She'll figure it out.

Hmmm.. so based on the response on the topic. I think generally everyone agrees that..

 

1) Yes Beckett is in love with Castle.

2) AND Yes Beckett has not accepted / completely realize it yet.

 

Post on if you guys disagree/agree with the 2 points.

She is in love and it's a very deep love, the kind that lasts a lifetime.

 

She is willing to change her entire life, her entire being for him and that's huge for a person who's been in denial and a standstill for many years after a traumatic experience. She wasn't pushed, coerced or forced in any way to change.. she does it out of her free will because the prize is worth it.

 

Castle's hand was forced when Kate was shot.. he thought it may be the last moments with her and his “I love you” would somehow give her the strength to pull through and he wanted to bring it out in the open even if it were the last thing she ever hears.

 

That final moment is not quite there for Kate but deep down she loves him.. probably for quite some time (at least somewhere season 3, if not even earlier) and she just needs that critical mass to assemble before she can admit it publicly and move on with him.

 

And boy will i scream like a fangirl when i see that on the screen (and i'm a 36 year old guy!) Love

yes, she is in love with him and yes, she is very aware of it! I think she realized it during the whole Demming/Hamptons desaster. You don't break up with a guy for a man you have only a crush on. She didn't want to go to the Hamptons with Castle as “best friends” having a nice weekend (although I'm sure that was Castle's only intention). To me, her love was quite obvious in the end of season 2 and season 3. And she hides it very well in season 4!
