In Always, Beckett went to the swings and made a decision and then put herself out there and told Castle she just wanted him, no matter what she had to give up.
In Watershed, Castle went to the swings and made a decision and then put himself out there and told Beckett he wanted her, no matter what he had to give up.
This masterfully crafted parallel is utter perfection.
I love this scene so much. She’s preparing herself. “This is the moment, Kate.” He’s walking away. Ending things. You can literally see her face aging with the pain; with the unshed tears and emotion she’s holding back. She swallows, bracing herself for the break, the inevitable end, and then… he kneels.
THIS … ALL OF THIS. OMFG.
