Even though Rick made the mistake of not getting Kate anything for Christmas, when Castle returns in the new year he will definitely be looking to remedy his faux-pas. Sources report that one February sweeps episode will highlight the couple’s first Valentine’s Day together.
In that February sweeps episode – the same one guest-starring Firefly alum Gina Torres as the star of a Real Housewives-like reality mess – “Castle and Beckett are talking about what they got each other, and there’s a subtle competition between the two of them,” shares show boss Andrew Marlowe. And as Rick strikes to make good on his Yuletide faux-pas, “That in and of itself brings its own complications…. Let’s just say that some wild hi-jinks ensue as he tries to deliver her present.” Hmm, bigger than a breadbox? Or (ahem) tiny enough to fall down a sewer grate?
