We’ve thought it, we’ve said it, and now our feelings about Caskett’s endless will-they-or-won’t-they game are being echoed by none other than Susan Sullivan.

On Castle Season 4, Episode 19: "47 Seconds," Rick’s (Nathan Fillion) mother Martha Rodgers hinted that it may be time for Castle to share his feelings with Beckett (Stana Katic) — and not just when she’s lying on the ground with a bullet inside her chest. But those sentiments were mild compared to what Susan has to say in real life.

“I totally approve of this relationship. I just don't approve of this sort of pussyfooting around,” she told Wetpaint Entertainment. “I think he has to take some action. Enough is enough. I'm going to call her on the phone one of these days and tell her that, too.”

Susan would like some answers about her own love life on the show too, especially the part about making a little Castle baby with a CIA agent.

“Wow. How intriguing. I don't remember him,” jokes Susan. “But it’s entirely possible that it happened.”

“You have to understand. They tell the actors nothing,” she reveals to us. “I don't know why. Probably because we would tell you, and then who'd have to tune in? So they tell me nothing.”

That doesn’t mean Martha’s on the backburner for the rest of the season.

“I'm having some nice little scenes in terms of myself as an artist, and how I feel about that, which is always nice,” she says. “When you're on a show like this and you're the mother of the lead character, you're really there to reveal who he is. So every once in a while, it's nice to be able to see who you are."

And when it comes to her character, Susan knows exactly who she is.

“This character is based on my own mother,” says the actress. “She just died recently. She had a great life, and so it's fun for me. I feel totally connected to her when I'm playing Martha because that's how my mother was — ebullient. She was not going to be in the background.” 

So far, that’s Martha to the T.
