“Castle… should I be worried about your commitment to our engagement?”

  • Haha, great clip. Love her pajamas.

    I hope Castle gets to announce their engagement publicly by the end of the ep.

    • Kate’s pajamas looked very cute indeed! Then again anything looks cute on the gorgeous Stana Katic.

    • I think Kate will be the one who announce it at the end

      • Oh I’d really love that.

        Comment by Apples – January 17, 2014 08:11 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Wow. Kate didn’t even blink while reading the article on Rick’s supposed cuddling with Gina. Shows the extent to which Caskett have progressed from those insecure times late in Season 5 to this very secure & cute couple!

    Comment by Rich Abey – January 17, 2014 06:27 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree Rich. It’s wonderful to see Kate so at ease with this rumor, especially since it’s with an ex and someone he still has regularly in his life.

      Matt, WHY ARE THEY NOT KISSING!?!?! ;-p

      Comment by Allie – January 17, 2014 07:39 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Stop asking why they’re not kissing! It seems like some people want the show to be soft porn or something. I’ve seen real engaged couples who show less intimacy than these characters. I love the interaction.

        • I’m pretty sure that Allie was joking.

      • Good question. Is castle gay? Those cute sleep shorts along should prompt some kind of reaction from him. Darn, she looks sexy. Wake up Bro, that is one beautiful woman,with legs to match Castle, my man, get a physical check up. LOL, just kidding, but if this was real life and not a TV show, I would think that Castle is Beckett’s father or her older brother.

  • Okay I have high expectation for this episode except for caskett kiss. I’m getting used to it. Let’s place bets if they’ll kiss or not on this episode. No for caskett, yes for Alexis/Pi

    • I’m loving this season, but they seriously need to start kissing more!!!

      Comment by Luli – January 17, 2014 08:17 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • A lot of people don’t care, including me. I’d much rather fun, enjoyable and fresh intimate scenes like the one in this clip rather keep a “kissing counter” going.

      Comment by Apples – January 17, 2014 09:26 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Banter is hot. Crime solving is foreplay. Kate’s his family. How on earth can you be more obsessed with ‘but have they kissed yet!?1!?1!’ than going squee over that stuff? I don’t need kisses as proof of life for their relationship. It’s pretty obvious they love each other, they’re engaged and having sex. You have to see it to get your jollies? She’s being playful with nipping at his ear and he’s being dry and funny back. It’s sweet. Let the fan fiction go. We’ve got plenty of evidence that when they kiss it’s pretty hot. Surely people can watch clips of that at their leisure rather than demand a kiss box be checked while writing episodes. They’ve crushed the Moonlighting Curse. Give ‘em a frickin’ medal. Griping is out of place here. It’s actually gone from being annoying to predictable and soon (I hope) funny. A lot of us have running jokes about how long it’s gonna take for the ‘not enough of Caskett’ or no-kiss rants to start. No appreciation for the latest eps in question, straight to whining. I wouldn’t wanna be so predictable if it were me. There’s plenty of Caskett. Choose not to see it, your loss.

            Comment by Dory – January 18, 2014 06:08 AM PDT  
      • Agree. And what a cute fresh scene! I would like to see Nathan smile more. He seems to have acquired a more serious face even when he isn’t.

  • I was wondering when AWM & Co would touch this subject, remember RC is on the NYC’s most eligible bachelor’s annual top ten list. News of his engagement would make the headlines of the social/society page along with the magazines that have covered his work with the NYCPD and the local ty talk shows. Now that explosions will be funny.

  • If you pause it to read the article it says “ruggedly handsome” novelist. :) Nice nod.

    • I caught that, too. Ha.

      Comment by Matt Webb Mitovich – January 17, 2014 09:02 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • He really IS ruggedly handsome.

        Comment by Winter – January 17, 2014 09:45 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • And the other article is about Mandy Sutton, who is the troubled popstar in the ep. Props to the props department.

      Comment by Apples – January 17, 2014 09:25 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • And the entire article repeats itself in the second column. I guess that there’s only so much you can say about the “ruggedly handsome” author and his ex-wife.

      Comment by Lindsay – January 17, 2014 09:46 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Most “fake” articles in TV newspapers do that. At least they actually wrote something pertinent vs greeking.

  • When are we getting a caskett kiss (a real one not rick kissing Kate on her forehead)

    Comment by Delena forever – January 17, 2014 09:33 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Are we all ignoring elephant in the room? Fillion once again looks so bored while Stana is giving everything she has. I don’t get this kind of direction.

    Comment by Jenna – January 17, 2014 09:58 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • The whole point of the scene is that Castle isn’t happy with the papers and the fact he has to keep his relationship with Beckett a secret. So he’s kinda making her work for his attention. I thought it was cute and very much in-character (and I don’t like how people refer to the actors and not the characters when making an in-show reference).

      Comment by Apples – January 17, 2014 10:08 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I thought the whole point of the scene is Kate likes to “torture” Castle. ;-)

        I agree though, the whole point is he is annoyed with having to keep the engagement out of the press. I love the fact he wanted to have it out.

        Comment by Allie – January 17, 2014 11:01 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • You don’t get the direction because you don’t get the point of the scene. Nathan doesn’t “look bored” and he doesn’t have a problem with Stana or the show. Stop. It’s a broken record, and it’s not even accurate.

      Comment by scooby – January 17, 2014 12:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • There wasn’t much to say about Rick and Gina in the article apparently. If you read the whole thing it repeats itself in the second column.

    I’m betting that Beckett outs the relationship at the end. Ie: The press gets to Castle again about Gina, he denys the rumor and says that he’s in a committed relationship with an unnamed person. Kate steps in, finally wearing that ginormous ring that we never get to see, kisses him and then tells the press ‘Actually he’s engaged’. The end :)

    • Sorry, in Canada is going to be 3 days too, at least for this coming episode, something about another preempt.

      • There is going to be another preempt???

  • I have a feeling that before the end of the episode Kate will finally announce that she is Castle fiancee and not his ex wife especially when the reporters start following them around should be alot of fun and looks like it has some great Caskett scenes as well

    Comment by Curtis Scott Bynon – January 17, 2014 01:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I jokingly posted about Beckett looking cute in her PJ’s and how could Castle resist. But seriously, on second viewing I questioned if Castle was ‘sleep-walking?’. He seems to be phoning it in. I really did not want him to attempt a kiss, Nathan is not very good at screen kisses. Actually WTWT, worked more for me. The attempts at physical romance falls flat.

    Comment by frankie – January 18, 2014 02:51 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Im seriously sick of seeing NF bored….he’s ruining Rick Castle..the fun loving, happy, crazy about Beckett Castle is all but gone.. So frustrating!

    Comment by Emma – January 18, 2014 02:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Wow, SK is so adorable!! She (Beckett) is very playful on this scene but no interaction from Castle! He is very dry! they don’t have to kiss on the lips or he kiss her on the lips in return but at least some “lovingly” gesture back from him. I know, “not on the script again”.JMO..

    Frankie, WTWT – means??

    Comment by terri – January 18, 2014 03:37 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • WTWT= Will they, won’t they? We got more romantic tension with it. People on this board and other boards are commenting on Rick’s lack of reaction to Kate’s come on. I do not know if his response was directed in such manner as he presented it. Whatever, its not our call, but if Nathan is bored and ready to move, they should let him out of his contract. I agree that he is messing up the show. You can see Stana trying but she needs a little reaction from Nathan. There are few things worst than having to show up daily to a job you are really no longer interested in. Stana has the looks (and talent) to make it work with another love interest. Try Dr. Motorcycle Boy. He and Beckett looked so good together. I resent his bi-ceps. I’ll take the billionaire, what’s his name? He possessed a subtle sexiness and the money would make it complete. I found Denning a little boring. Listening Marlowe? Do something!

      Comment by frankie – January 18, 2014 05:53 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Um, no, just no. Dr. MCB does not even bear mentioning. But I have to say that although the show is Castle, I would watch Kate without Rick, I wouldn’t watch Rick without Kate.

        Comment by Carolina – January 18, 2014 08:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • That is exactly my point. I would watch w/o Castle but not w/o Beckett. Therefore I believe that Stana has the sex appeal, the talent to pull it off. Remember, Marlowe said he is telling a love a love story and the procedural part is used to advanced the story forward. It is used to point out this couple’s advancement to a committed relationship. Well we got the story part, but the love part has disappeared. He looks like her daddy now. He looks bored and miserable. I no longer view him as a love interest. I won’t bother to comment on ruggedly handsome. Please.

          • Yes the story has passed let us have the comedy we use to enjoy.Mr Marlowe you need to hire good writers for Ryan and Esposito and have more scenes with them.

            Comment by Carolee – January 20, 2014 02:58 PM PDT  
      • BTW, loved this clip. As long as they have these cute interactions, I’m okay with them not kissing every show. They are still in love.

        Comment by Carolina – January 18, 2014 08:21 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • The show is called Castle, so Richard Castle isn’t going anywhere. :-P

  • That is adorable!!!!

    Comment by Ana Rubio – January 19, 2014 04:26 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Yes, the show is called Castle, but I don’t watch it for Castle anymore..NF has turned me off with his lack of enthusiasm for his character. I now find myself watching reruns with Beckett and other love interests and enjoying it..I never did before. :( But it’s fun seeing her having chemistry with someone. I liked her with Collin Hunt..Scotland yard guy..they’d be great together on another show..

    Comment by Emma – January 19, 2014 07:27 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Glad you mentioned that Scotland yard guy, Colin Hunt is it? Beckett looked good with him also. Let’s have a spin-off. Since his character is already in law enforcement, this would work. The sexual tension could start with he and Beckett competing as equals in the department and later forced to work together and resenting it. Castle could go off and play with some fireflies or something. Colin seemed more mature than Nathan. Beckett presents herself as smart, as does Colin. Colin also does not come off as silly. Beckett needs a mature guy.

  • Lol, this people are hilarious!, take it easy! only 1 more year and this will end, all will be able to move on and follow who you want.

    Comment by Ana – January 20, 2014 04:49 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I never said that I wanted the show to end, I just want the magic back. And no, I’m not talking about sex or even kisses, I’m referring to the love and adoration that shined in Castle’s eyes for Kate. It’s like Rick and Kate both did 180′s since last season. Kate has let her guard down with Rick and is loving and playful. Rick has become serious and detached. Honestly, I don’t understand what happened. Maybe Marlowe is the problem. Maybe NF really isn’t happy anymore. If that is the case, give us a beautiful wedding as a send-off and call it a day.

      Comment by Carolina – January 20, 2014 02:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I also wish the magic of their love came back.We (the fans) need them to express their love openly And not just sex scenes but hand touching ,eyes lovingly looking at each other and lots of kisses just like real life with lovers do before they marry
