After learning some hottie was about to blow up Beckett’s spot (read: the 12th precinct) and potentially steal our leading man’s heart, we were more than a little saddened.

Who does this insurance investigator woman think she is? And what the heck is an insurance investigator anyway? No, really!

But before you start firing off hate mail to Castle’s writers, exec producer Laurie Zaks wants to clear the air. “[Castle and Beckett are] still going to be your favorite couple,” she reassures Entertainment Weekly. Whew!

Clearly, Beckett and Castle will still have the whole "will they?/won’t they?" thing going on, and Zaks explains, “The challenge for Andrew [Marlowe] and the writers this year is to take that relationship to the next level — whatever that next level is.”

Which, we hope, is a real, Facebook-worthy relationship.

However, Zaks said the deets are still “being ruminated on,” and writers don’t know exactly what’s going to happen between them, adding that the"will they?/won’t they?" “can’t be that forever.”

But rest assured, whether they do or don’t, it will make for one helluva good story. Even better? Zaks says the very first ep of Season 4 will answer a lot of questions about what direction the season — and the detective duo — are aimed.

So either way, Zaks says “fans will enjoy what they see” next season. Guess we can’t argue with that.
