It’s beginning to look a lot like… Castle‘s very first Christmas episode, and our (early) gift to you is a stocking full of first-look photos from the festive outing. But first, kids: Earmuffs! There’s a dead Santa ahead!
In the ABC drama’s first episode to mark the Yuletide holiday (and airing Dec. 3), Castle and Beckett hunt for the person who killed Santa when a bearded, rotund man in a red Santa suit — and bearing an ID reading Kris Kringle — falls from the sky in Central Park.
But more to the point, the hour presents Rick and Kate’s first Christmas together as a couple. Let’s hope he didn’t buy her socks.
Check out the photos here, and share in Comments your holiday wishes the 12th precint team.
