By far my blog on the dismissal of Stana Katic was (to date) the most retweeted, shared and talked about of my writings. So, naturally, after ABC officially pulls the plug on "Castle," I'm inspired to muse about the alphabet network's antics once again. I mean, I can get lowering the boom on "Nashville" and "Agent Carter." But, once again, devote fans on a hit show are left with NO CLOSURE as those in the high network tower decided to take their toys and go home instead of being big boys and girls and resolving the issue. Nice ABC, real nice. Now go to your rooms.

Yeah, he's right. There was going to be no real happy ending to this whole "Castle" mess. But, as I wrote before, Stana still got the shaft even before this other shoe dropped. And, I couldn't help but notice and read recently her co-star Nathan Fillion closed a deal to return as the name-sake writer for a 9th Season. Hmm.... what happened? See, it's just like I said, there was a shit storm coming... and here it is! But, in the interest of giving YOU the closure that ABC won't... in lieu of my typical third quote and summary paragraph, I'm just gonna share the content of the handwritten note Ms. Katic shared on her Twitter (@Stana_Katic):
"Dear Castle Fans, Cast and Crew,
Your devotion to our show has carried us for this unforgettable 8 seasons. I'm luck to have met & worked with & for the lot of you. I will always be grateful. BIG HUG - Stana"
