Oh, joy! Castle Season 4 ended on a high-note for Caskett ‘shippers when Castle and Beckett shared their first official kiss (whoa!), initiated by Beckett (double whoa!).
It’s true: After Becks popped up at Castle’s apartment all doe-eyed (and wet-haired), viewers saw the lovebirds do some seriously heavy petting. But despite all the sexiness we saw on-screen, one looming question still remains: Did Castle and Beckett actually do it?
Fans were left in the dark — quite literally — before the duo ever made their way to the bedroom. While we won’t find out what actually transpired after that steamy scene ‘til next fall, we’re serve up three hot n’ fresh reasons Caskett totally did it. Hands (and pants) down.
Eat up, Castle addicts!
3. Castle Unbuttoned Beckett’s Shirt — and Kept Going
Amidst hardcore kissing, the ever-crafty Castle unbuttoned Beckett’s blouse, which revealed her sexy black bra and not-so-sexy bullet wound. Eesh. Way to ruin the moment, right? Well, no.
Thanks to a quick camera pause on the scar, we assume both Castle and Beckett saw it, and moved on. If that awkward moment didn’t stop them for dropping their drawers, we don’t know what will.
2. It’d Be More Awkward if They Didn’t
For real, picture this: Kate and Castle in the bedroom making out hardcore, with clothes practically removing themselves. But then, when Castle attempts to actually, um, go there, Beckett whispers, “No. Stop. I think we should wait.”
Wait? For what? Marriage (yeah, right)? The apocalypse? The final episode of The Simpsons? We think they’ve waited more than long enough, thanks.
But what if it wasn’t Beckett, but Castle, who wanted to slow things down, you say? Maybe out of respect for his leading lady?
While that sounds honorable, with Castle’s past — not to mention that a very turned-on Beckett showed up at his door and said all she wanted was him — we just don’t see him putting the brakes on. No guy has that much self control. Sorry.
1. Fans Will Be Mad if They Didn't
No doubt, there was more than enough on-camera necking to insinuate things only heated up after the cameras went dark. Seriously, after years of sexual tension and weeks upon weeks of cast and crew interviews teasing a hot hookup, there would have to be one helluva excuse for Caskett’s celibacy to keep excited Castle fans at bay.
We’re a passionate bunch. Don’t mess with us, Andrew Marlowe!
