CASKETT BE MY VALENTINE
Here is my compilation of 20 of the most romantic, flirty, sexy, tender moments between Castle and Beckett, also known as “Caskett,” from our favorites show.
These are just a few of our top heart-thumping memories from our favorite episodes.
20. DRESSED TO KILL. Season 6 Episode 14
Beckett is dazzling in a beautiful wedding gown. She stares at herself in a mirror with an uneasy look on her face. This was troubling until Beckett reveals to Castle that she was upset because she always thought her mother would be there to help plan her big day. Check out the dress in the clip below and take comfort in the fact that all is well in Caskettville at the end of the day.
19. THE NOSE. Season 8 Episode 5
I loved this episode for a couple of reasons. Initially Kate broke my heart telling Rick she was cleaning out the rest of her stuff. With the help of the Nose, the closing scene was so heartfelt as we see both leaving a shirt for each other.
18. STILL. Season.5. Episode. 22
What can I say, I am a sucker for this type of show. Kind of like an ESPN plays of the year show. It is everything from the first 5 seasons we love about these two and all they get involved in. I really liked that Castle proved to be a real man and by staying with Kate and Kate finally tell him she loved him.
17. SECRET SANTA. Season 5 Episode 9
First Christmas for Caskett,however, Kate doesn’t do Christmas since her mother’s murder. She knows how big a kid Castle is and can only imagine (ok with a lot of help from him) what the loft is gonna look like. To make matters worse, Rick’s redheads made plans for Christmas Eve thinking he was taken care of. In the end, Castle realizes he must be with Beckett even if it is at the 12th and Kate knows in her heart she wants to be with him and comes to the Loft.
16. COUNTDOWN. Season 3 Episode 17
Here in season three we get our 2 part episode where our dynamic couple go rogue based on a hunch after studying the evidence. This time after a gun battle, they found themselves locked in a freezer. With hope almost lost, Kate and Rick huddling, she almost professed her love. Later, she confirmed this when longingly watching Rick dejectedly leave while in the arms of another man.
15. LAW & MURDER. Season 3 Episode 19
They continue to grow closer, this time after a hard case, Kate innocently invites Castle on a “date” to see Forbidden Planet”. Castle played dumb and was overjoyed to accompany her.
14. HOME IS WHERE THE HEART STOPS. Season 1 Episode 7
Beckett must go way out of her comfort zone to enter Castle’s glamorous, paparazzi filled world as his date to a charity ball. Of course, Beckett has nothing to wear, then a dress arrives at her door! They manage to make their way out to the dance floor during the undercover operation. Unfortunately, it’s only because that’s because it’s the only place they won’t be overheard.
13. WHEN THE BOUGH BREAKS. Season 2 Episode 5
Castle’s agent tells him he’s being tapped to re-launch a major franchise, that of a certain British secret agent. At the book launch party for Heat Wave, Beckett discovers that Castle called her “extraordinary” in his dedication. The new book is a hit. Castle’s publisher offers him a three-book deal which he takes. He’s simply not ready to walk away from Nikki Heat nor Kate Beckett either.
12.THE BLUE BUTTERFLY. Season 4 Episode 14
We had to time-travel back to the 1940s to get an extended look at what Castle and Beckett would look like as a couple. They went by the names Joe Flynn and Vera Mulqueen back in the days when a necklace called the Blue Butterfly was at the center of a twisting tale of passion, deception and murder. Castle believes that Joe and Vera’s love story is the stuff dreams are made of. At the time, we were thinking if only he could be like Flynn with Beckett already.
11. REALITY STAR STRUCK. Season 5 Episode 14
Castle hopes his girlfriend will get him something cool for Valentine’s Day like a light saber autographed by George Lucas. Beckett hopes her boyfriend will get her something that’s not from a Jedi catalogue. She finally reveals her gift to him at the end of the episode. The gift was truly inspirational and one of commitment from Beckett that she could not do in any of her previous relationships.
10.THE MISTRESS ALWAYS SPANKS TWICE. Season 2 Episode 16,
Beckett notices that the cuffs found at a murder scene are custom-made and may be easy to trace. Castle wants to know how she knows the bondage bracelets are custom-made. The two partners muse about the psychology of domination and submission and the inevitable comparison to their own relationship. Castle thinks Beckett’s the punisher and he’s punishee. But Beckett has a list of grievances that may prove otherwise. It started the first day they met. Always nice to get a glimpse of Beckett’s wild side.
9. AN EMBARRASSMENT OF BITCHES. season 4 episode 13,
Castle gives Beckett tips on how to care for a canine murder witness named Royal. He shows her how the cute pooch likes to be rubbed by making circles with his thumb on the back of her hand. It starts out as a perfectly innocent moment, but then something happens. The look the two of them share lets us know this hand-holding exercise stirred some feelings inside. Moments later, Beckett is being showered with kisses…from Royal the dog after Castle has left the building.
8. IN THE BELLY OF THE BEAST. Season 6 Episode 17
When Kate is recruited to go undercover and is thrust into the depths of the Vulkan Simmons drug empire. When she seemed doomed, Kate pens the ultimate love note. When the ordeal was over she tells Castle it was thinking of him and her love of him that kept her alive.
7. KNOCKDOWN. Season 3 Episode 13
Castle and Beckett track down a killer’s location and assume the role drunken lovers to distract the lookout. When it appears as though the thug isn’t buying their act, Castle plants a long, passionate kiss on Beckett. The sensual smooch is awesome on a variety of levels, one of which is allowing Beckett the opportunity to knockout the thug. Castle says, “That was amazing.” We get the feeling he’s not referring to Beckett’s takedown though. Interesting that Kate shows these feelings while being with another man in a serious relationship.
6.Cops and Robbers, season 4 episode 7,
Castle is caught in a bank hostage situation as Beckett dons an EMT uniform to tend to a sick man inside. She tells him that there are people out there who care about him and that she’ll get him out of there. Castle knows these words are really meant for him as Beckett squeezes his hand. Later, Castle rattles off all the times he’s saved Beckett’s life. It seems he’s been keeping score. Even after this recent bank robbery adventure, Castle still holds the lead 9-8.
5. KICK THE BALLISTICS season 4 episode 4
Castle casually brings up the time his partner in crime-solving was shot. Beckett sticks to her claim that the entire day is a blank. We know that’s not true. Now we’re starting to believe that perhaps Castle may be thinking that, too. At one point in the episode, Castle hands Beckett her morning coffee. It’s a sweet gesture we’ve seen dozens of times before. It’s also always subtly romantic. This courting began back in episode 9 of season 1 as the pic shows.
4. THE PROPOSAL. Season 5 Episode 23. Season 6 Episode 1
Deep soul searching that lead to Rick finally taking the plunge he had been avoiding, Kate manages to give us some awesome scenes where she can’t say yes or no. Great stuff. They really seem committed to making a go of it.
3. MURDER HE WROTE. Season 5 Episode 4
Finally they get the trip to the Hamptons and the evolution of Caskett. Between solving the murder for Chief Brady they get in a lot of romance concluding with Kate possibly getting a writing credit.
2. THE LAST SEDUCTION. season 8 episode 7
The couple takes a break from work and self-imposed separation to celebrate their anniversary. Sure, they’re a day late, but that doesn’t stop them from having a romantic if slightly bittersweet celebration, complete with take-out and a little romance. Through thick and thin, Caskett always seem to make it work.
1.THE THE TIME OF OUR LIVES Season 7 episode 6
Castle and Beckett say their wedding vows at a beautiful sunset ceremony in the Hamptons with their closest family as witnesses. This, of course, is the same episode in which they envision their lives without each other, but we’ll just keep that in the world of fantasy where it belongs. This is the moment where Caskett became official. Just HAS to be number 1!
