Castle has had a great season, and we anxiously await the next great Caskett moment, but we won’t see it tonight.

Castle and Beckett are taking a few weeks off during the show’s winter hiatus, so tonight, Monday, Dec. 17, 2012, we imagine they’ll be sipping hot cocoa by the fire while we marathon our DVDs.

However, if you don’t want to watch a full season tonight, Season 5, Episode 3: “Secret’s Safe With Me” (aka the tear-filled episode when Alexis heads to college) is airing tonight at 10 p.m. ET.

And when the show finally returns on Jan. 7, 2013, we’re in for a red-hot episode when Rick’s ex-wife, Meredith, drops by. As seen in the promo for Castle Season 5, Episode 10: “Significant Others,” both Kate and Mere stay at Rick’s apartment, and his place is far from a love shack!

Episode 10 will also feature a dramatic lover’s quarrel with Weeds’  Brendan Ford and General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn, and hopefully Caskett won’t follow suit.

How will you cope with your Castle-less Monday? Tell us below!

Original Air Date: Castle Season 5, Episode 10: “Significant Others” airs on Monday, Jan. 7, 2013 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
