By now, it's no secret that Castle Season 5 focuses on Castle and Beckett doing what they do best. Oh, get your head out of the gutter — we're talking about crime solving!
But wait, didn't Detective Beckett relinquish her police badge in the Season 4 finale? She did, but as show creator Andrew Marlowe continually reminds us, Castle wouldn't be Castle without our beloved dynamic duo chasing down Manhattan's most hardened criminals.
Before this photo of Beckett in her police vest began making the rounds on Twitter, some fans were speculating that perhaps Castle and Beckett would form their own detective agency. While it's not a bad theory, Marlowe reveals that it's also not true.
"Much to the chagrin of a certain part of the fan base," he says, "[Beckett] and Castle are not starting a private detective agency."
So when does Beckett officially return to the force? Sooner than you may have anticipated. Although we won't see her rocking a bulletproof vest in the season premiere, "After the Storm," Entertainment Weekly assures us it'll be back to business as usual for Beckett by Episode 2.
Well, almost business as usual. Castle and Beckett might not be forming a secret agency, but they are keeping their romance hidden from view. And that is going to make for one heck of a fun — and sexy! — season.
