Castle has been on winter hiatus for far too long, but our favorite show makes its triumphant return this Monday, Jan. 7, 2013!

We’ll kick off the new year with a dramatic episode, natch. In “Significant Others,” airing at 10 p.m. ET on ABC, we’ll see Castle and Beckett living together — but there’s a catch. While Kate’s apartment is being fumigated, she expects to have a romantic visit with her beau, but then Alexis comes home sick from college with mono!

And to spoil the fun even further, Rick’s “deep-fried Twinkie” ex, Meredith (Scandal’s Darby Stanchfield) drops by the loft unannounced and overstays her welcome. This is in addition to two intense cases with a slew of guest stars, including a War of the Roses-style battle with a wealthy divorcee (General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn) and her ex-husband (Weeds’ Brendan Ford), plus Melrose Place’s Jack Wagner as a “pro golfer whose career went down in flames after a nasty divorce.” Sounds scandalous!

To prepare yourself for Monday, check out the official synopsis, some sneak peek pictures, and then watch a plethora of spoiler clips below!
