The December 3rd episode of Castle, "Secret Santa", is fast approaching and creator Andrew Marlowe spoils that Beckett's and Castle 'hush-hush' relationship will soon be out in the open. Marlowe teases the holidays will be a mixed bag emotion.
"We're going to move beyond it. There's only so much storytelling we can sustain," he says. "Capt. Gates is certainly the big issue. How is she going to react? Is that going to threaten the partnership?" So will that reveal be a Christmas gift to viewers or a big lump of coal? "[We] will be dealing with the good of the holiday season — and the bad," Marlowe teases.
