It was the morning after on the "Castle" season premiere, but did it come with any regrets? In the Season 4 finale, Castle and Beckett gave in to their passions, culminating in a night fans of the show have been eagerly anticipating for four seasons. But what happens after that?
Well, coffee for starters, courtesy of Beckett. That came with a cautious back-and-forth where both Castle and Beckett were feeling one another out to see how they felt about what had just happened.
In the end, Castle confirmed that he'd liked it -- "Especially that part. I loved that." -- and Beckett said that she'd liked it, too. So no weirdness to deal with. Just the reality that they were now ready to do "this," whatever "this" is.
One thing "this" turned out not to be was a sense of comfortable that allowed them to share the new development with the other people in their lives. Castle literally had Beckett hide in the closet when his mother and daughter came by, and she tried to shove him into a closet later in the episode when Ryan dropped in to talk about the case.
Despite trying to walk away, the case was too personal and Beckett had to get involved. She and Castle inadvertently led Maddox to the files they were looking for, but he accidentally blew himself and the files up. That meant it was jigsaw puzzle time, as they literally spent hours trying to put the paper fragments together.
It was enough to get an account number, which Beckett was able to use to secure Smith's deal with Senator Bracken for herself. She may not be able to put him away for his role in her mother's death just yet, but at least she can keep him close, and maybe a little scared.
