ABC's hit crime procedural Castle returns tonight, Nov. 19, 2012 with Season 5, Episode 8: "After Hours."

Unlike last week's episode, which took us on a wild wide documentary-style, tonight's brand-new installment will return to the show's regular format. But there's nothing regular about what goes down between our so-in-love leads, Rick Castle and Kate Beckett.

Check out the official episode synopsis below:

"In the aftermath of a disastrous 'Meet the Parents' dinner, a bickering Castle and Beckett are sent to retrieve the only witness to a murder. But when they get ambushed, they're forced to take the witness on the run. Stranded in the middle of the night in a bad part of town, with no phone, badge or gun, Castle and Beckett must find a way to protect him from a team of mobsters who want him silenced — that is, if they don't kill each other first."

Yikes! Is there trouble in paradise for Castle and Beckett? When Wetpaint Entertainment spoke exclusively with show creator Andrew Marlowe, he hinted that tonight's episode may force the couple to think about whether or not they're truly compatible. A real test for any new relationship!

Do you think Castle and Beckett will get over this bump in the road? Tune in tonight for Castle Season 5, Episode 8: "After Hours" at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
