Castle fans, brace yourself: Someone new is going to find out about Caskett’s romance — and it’s the last person you’d think of.

Last month, we reported that Castle’s ex-wife, Meredith, is waltzing back into his life, and in addition to awkwardly staying at his loft while Kate is there, too, she immediately unveils their relationship!

“It’s pretty obvious,” Meredith’s portrayer, Darby Stanchfield, told TVLine, “so we get past that right away.”

Well, we thought it was pretty obvious, but even Captain Gates didn’t uncover their secret last week, and you can’t hide much from her!

But Darby seemed excited to return, exclaiming, “Meredith’s moving in! She’s packed her bags and she’s back!” Unfortunately, we have to wait until Jan. 2013 for her episode to air, but we’ll be dreaming up potential awkward situations until then — i.e. Where the heck is Beckett going to sleep?!

Are you excited to see Meredith return? Weigh in below!
