I'll be sorry to see Castle end. Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Jon Huertas, Seamus Dever, Susan Sullivan, and Molly Quinn were fun to watch. Ric Castle was fun to watch when he was playing at being a detective so that he could write more novels.
I think the show could easily have gone 9 or 10 seasons IF:
(a) Castle's character had shown growth, learning from his detective experiences instead of constantly stepping in the same cowpies.
(b) Stana Katic had been retained. Her loss really hurt when it was announced that she would not be back for another season.
(c) The secondary characters, especially Molly Quinn, had been given more to do.
(d) The writers had not kept constantly separating the two lead characters for long periods.
(e) The writers had not kept bringing in serial killers but had just stuck with murders of the week, perhaps with only one being due to a serial killer.
(f) ABC had moved the show, keeping in mind the above five points and doing them all, to Friday, Saturday, or Sunday night. Let's not forget that the Beverly Hillbillies used to own early Saturday nights and that Bonanza thrived season after season after season on Sundays. Weekends are not dead zones if a good show is placed there, simply because there is practically nothing of any quality to watch on a weekend.
Anyway, I'll look forward to the finale. As a Canadian I have loved to see a show with 2 Canadian actors last this long in Hollywood. I just wish things had been different and that there had been more Castle to come.moreless

I totally agree with (D)! I couldn't start to watch this season till they were back together again, privately.

Yet, IMHO, ABC owed us a better series ending (see my review).

I'm not disagreeing with that! I think the last episode bit the green wiener big time.

Interestingly two separate endings have been filmed - one in the event the show is renewed and the other in the event that its cancellation is known prior to airing the episode.
I was surprised that LokSat had not been part of recent episodes as I would have thought that the writers would have worked harder to set up the season or series finale. That may be a good insight as to what ABC really thinks of the show.
