Last night's "Kill Shot" was a big breakthrough episode for Kate Beckett (and a powerful acting showcase for Stana Katic).

The detective confronted the demons from her shooting and is now ready to move past her mother's murder and "dive into a relationship," she tells The TV Addict.

But does that mean we'll finally get what we've all been hoping for, a Castle and Beckett relationship? Not quite so fast, Caskett fans.

"It’s not something you can do overnight, it’s not like, ‘Oh, Okay, Castle, I love you.’ But it does mean that she’s closing that chapter and whether she solves that murder or not, she’s going to lean towards life," she says.

Well, maybe it's not something Kate can do overnight ... but a week is enough time, right? What do you think: Should Beckett just man up and tell Rick what she feels? Tell us on our Castle Facebook page.
