Stana Katic

Castle fans have to wait until fall to find out if Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) chooses a marriage proposal from Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) over an enticing offer to join the FBI in Washington, D.C. But Katic is clear on what she hopes Beckett does. "If she drops the FBI gig, she's a loser," she says. "This is a modern woman's story, and I don't want to send the message that a woman has to choose love over a career. New York and D.C. are not that far apart, and Rick's a millionaire. They can travel. I think it would really be a big disservice to the character to create a job opportunity like this and let it peter out."

Katic offers this suggestion to Castle's writers to help keep the potential FBI agent connected to her NYC squad: "Bring the 3XK killer back, which requires Kate to put together her own team. Sometimes we're all together in New York and sometimes we're telling different stories apart. Kate can have it all!" Sounds good, but would Castle ever go for such an arrangement?
