Beckett is finally back to the NYPD after serving her suspension, and concerned about keeping her relationship with Castle a secret in the workplace. The team is baffled with the murder of local celebrity WHNY's weather girl Mandy Michaels, because there is no apparent motive for the murder. As the investigation progresses, Castle takes playing single in public in order to advert suspicion on the relationship a little bit too much to heart as he goes on a date with Kristina Kotera, WHNY's sexy celebrity interviewer, the woman who doesn't take no for an answer. This, together with Miles Haxton's, Mandy's co-worker, confession that their romantic relationship imploded makes Beckett and Castle to start questioning whether their relationship stands a chance.

Kate Beckett: [trying to get dressed for work] Castle, what do you think of this one?
Richard Castle: Mmm, sexy.
Kate Beckett: Sexy? What do you mean by sexy?
Richard Castle: I mean... well... I mean sexy. Yeah, sexy. What's wrong with sexy?

One of the funnest, most light hearted Castle's yet. Laughed throughout and loved the ending!

I laughed and smiled a ton while watching this episode. It's so fun to watch our favorite chess characters try to work out the logistics of their relationship while still maintaining appearances. The back story took front stage in this episode and the case they were working on best served as a medium to reintroduce Esposito, Beckett, and Castle to the 12th. Castle's squirming led to antics that were more clearly forced, while Beckett's unease was less visible and minimized her need for recoveries. Both Fillion and Katic played their parts so very true to the characters they've established over the last few seasons, and it was great to see Beckett finally smile more openly at Castle's little antics. There was nothing foreboding or overly dense about this episode as it was one of the most upbeat and hilarious episodes of Castle yet. I can't think of many reasons at all why most people wouldn't ENJOY it. I especially liked the way it concluded. Man, did they nail it. Beckett's reaction after Castle repeated that he didn't have a choice was one of the cutest and most endearing reactions we've seen out of her since the beginning of the show. Castle's coy facial response after she turned to walk away was spot on. Kudos to both actors. This episode was a great addition to the story. It will leave you feeling just plain good.
