Detective Esposito is the hottest this week, not only for his broad shoulders and cute smile, but for his sweet defense of Beckett when he knew she was down and out about Castle. We have moments where we’d like these two to get together, but we fear it might be like the time Zack Morris and Jessie Spano had feelings for each other for half an episode, and our entire world was shaken. When Esposito told Beckett, “Maybe he’s not back from the Hamptons yet,” it was a bit of lovely (if false) encouragement from a good friend, which, of course, made him far more attractive. And not to make this seem like a sympathy prize, but how many times a day does Esposito call with a crucial piece of information only to be left out of the fun of following through on it? If he can’t have a dominant storyline or a fling with the leading lady during a Thanksgiving special, let’s at least take a moment to celebrate the guy’s good looks and charm.
