As much as we’d love to ring in the new year watching Rick and Kate get cozy, Castle is taking the night off.

But there’s a silver lining: Tonight, Dec. 31, 2012, is not only the last day of the year, but it marks the final Castle-less week we’ll have to endure.

Yes, yes — our favorite show finally returns on Jan. 7, 2013, and 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 lovers' 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? Will you still pop a bottle of Cristal? 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.
