25 Things That Make No Sense About Castle and Beckett's Relationship
Examples abound include Richard Castle and Detective Kate Beckett of "Castle", Niles Crane and Daphne Moon of "Frasier", Fox Mulder and. See some of the most romantic moments in Castle history! Moments later, Beckett is being showered with kisses from Royal the submission and the inevitable comparison to their own relationship. Kate Beckett either. While their professional and personal relationship has had its ups and downs, from blackmail to murder, Rick Castle and Kate Beckett always.
Kate's gaze dropped to her lap and she said, "Yeah, something like that. He had almost forgotten but in that moment it all came back to him. His voice very quiet, he looked towards Kate and said, "We have, actually…" "You're kidding! But the more he thought about it, the fresher the memory became. It had taken place at the reception of his mother's second wedding. A small affair compared to the first with only around forty guests.
Not wanting to go alone, Castle had invited his best friend.

They sat together for the short-and-sweet ceremony and then again for the reception meal. Their conversation had not begun until they were sharing a piece of lemon cake for dessert. At that time, Kate was dating a guy in her grade and Rick casually asked her if she had plans to marry him.
She laughed and said it was far too soon to tell, but most likely not, which sparked a conversation of their general feelings of marriage. Castle did not remember all the details and he suspected the two glasses of champagne he'd swiped for them had something to do with it, but somehow he'd suggested that he wasn't sure if marriage was for him, but by forty he would probably be ready to settle down and that if they were both single, they should marry each other.
Kate had refused, saying she wanted a child and forty would be too old. They had gone back and forth several times, but ultimately decided on thirty-three for whatever reason. To seal the deal, they'd signed a napkin. Castle doubted he thought of that pact more than one or two times since, but suddenly it was feeling very relevant.
Castle couldn't say he was shocked to hear the results. If he had a dollar for every time someone had asked "Are you two a couple?
When it came right down to it, he wasn't sure there was even a solid reason why other than they simply weren't and had never been. If forced to provide an explanation he would have said they met as kids and grew up as friends, but he wasn't confident in that reasoning.
Had he and Kate ever come close to becoming more than friends over the years? A few times, actually. He'd even tried to muster up the courage to ask her about it a few times, but always backed down, fearful of ruining the most valuable relationship in his life because at the end of the day, his friendship with Kate was too important to be ruined—particularly not by a silly internet quiz.
As the silence expanded past the thirty second mark Castle forced out a laugh to clear the air. In his gut he knew she was most likely teetering on the edge of being very upset.
I'm just going to run to the bathroom; I'll be back. Castle sighed as he picked up the discarded shirt and pulled it over his head. One thing he knew to be indisputably true about his best friend was that when it came to her emotions her response heavily favored flight over fight. Had Kate found the quiz to be an amusing anecdote, she would have chuckled, flipped over on her back and stuck her legs back out into the sun. The fact that she was scampering off with a pallid expression meant the quiz hit a bit too close to home.
He'd give her ten minutes, but if she didn't come back—and he suspected she wouldn't—he'd follow; the conversation they needed to have could only be done privately. Sitting on the edge of the pool deck, her legs dangling lazily in the water, Kate stared casually at the ripples formed from the water bouncing off the tiles. That Saturday afternoon certainly had not turned out as she expected. It wasn't Jenny's fault, per se. Kate knew she hadn't meant the quiz to be malicious and it was intended all in good fun, but the longer it went on, any amusement vanished as the questions began hitting closer and closer to home.
Castle was her best friend; no question existed in her mind. But with their friendship as lengthy as it was, it overlapped quite heavily with a romantic relationship—a marriage. Hell, being that they met when they were twelve, Kate and Rick not only knew each other longer than every married couple she knew, their years together were double and triple if not longer than most couples. Kate had never been the type of woman who defined herself by a romantic relationship or by a boyfriend.
She had many relationships over her adult life, some long, some short, but she focused mostly on her career and as she had become the NYPD's youngest female detective, that focus paid off and she did not regret one moment of it. Still, now that she was over thirty, the idea of finding a husband and having a family was more prevalent in her mind.
Of course she had on occasion thought about her best friend as a potential mate, but such thoughts felt so unattainable.
They were friends, pals. Save a few rare occasions there had never been anything romantic or sexual between them.
But yet…he was the only person who could make her smile simply by looking at her. He was the one person she felt she was one hundred percent herself around. For nearly two decades he was the one person who consistently felt like home. She shouldn't have been surprised that he followed her, but she was a little bit. She thought their one-on-one conversation would be later in the evening, perhaps after Kevin and Jenny put the baby to bed, but it appeared he was impatient—what else was new?
Dad gave me a box of my high school stuff—it was in there. She did not want to have this conversation. She really, really didn't. It terrified her more than she could express because if she lost him…god, if she lost him… But it was beyond her control; the conversation was coming whether she was ready or not. I want to say we're adults and whatever conversation we're about to have we can deal with and no matter the outcome we'll be fine but it doesn't feel that way.
Someone's going to get hurt. The tightness in her chest relaxed fifteen percent; it made her feel better to see he struggled as well. It'll either work or it'll take our friendship down with it.
Were they to embark on a romantic relationship that ended poorly she could not foresee a situation in which their friendship remained intact; there would be too much heartbreak. He reached out and placed his hand atop hers. They wouldn't try; they would continue on as they were. She could be all right with that—she would be all right with that.
Castle's fingers closed around her palm and he gave it a squeeze. Rotating his body towards hers, he continued. What was he—but he just! He had brown hair, blue eyes, and a sparkling grin that melted her heart. I mean, I only realized it about fifteen minutes ago but…yeah.
I don't know how I didn't see it. I mean, I did…but it was never right…" "What do you mean? I woke up feeling…lost, empty, horrible. But you were there, your arm was around me and when I opened my eyes and saw your face I just thought he's here and it's going to be okay.
I don't know how, but it's going to be okay. Rick's here; it's going to be okay. Looking back it seemed silly, but it truly had never crossed her mind. It was love, but friendship love. Castle told Beckett that he loved her when she was shot. She also gets a job in another city and does not tell Castle about it. Meanwhile, Castle has his own lies.
One of them involves making a deal to keep Beckett from pursuing her mother's case any further. All the while he, of course, is still on the hunt. This is all happening at the same time as her big secret, making for a tense season between the two. He had to do this because Kate hadn't told him about it. Kate's father tells her that she should take the job because it is what she has always wanted.
This echoes what she is feeling, and she is worried that what she and Castle have isn't real. However, once Beckett sets her mind to something, it is difficult for her to change it. Therefore, Beckett then tells Castle that she is going to take the job in DC. She had just been hit by an assassin's bullet. It was the series finale and it was everything we wanted, but in a cruel twist, it was taken away.
Beckett revealed to Castle that when it happened, she remembered everything "going blank. This broke his heart and made him believe that she didn't have feelings for him. They decide that it will not be a one-time thing and that they want it to be a serious relationship.
The only catch is that they must hide it from everyone at work. Due to precinct rules, co-workers are not allowed to become romantically involved, and if they do, then one of them must be reassigned.
Because of this, they decide to hide their entire relationship, which leads to some hilarious situations. They also hide it from Alexis and Castle's mother for a bit, though the two ladies were smart enough to figure it out rather quickly. It was almost nauseating at times. However, she changed her mind about Castle more times than the Kardashian's change their hair. The build-up to a relationship is always fun to watch, but this became painful. Part of her fence riding was brought on by jealousy.
It was self-inflicted since it was caused by flings Castle had after Beckett pushed him away. His mother was an actress and was rarely ever home.
How Well Do You Know Castle?
Castle was raised by his nannies instead of by his mother. For this reason, he refused to hire a nanny to help with his daughter Alexis. Castle had no idea who his father was initially and didn't care to find out.
In season five, Castle meets his father, who gives him a fake name and says that he left to protect them. He tells Castle that he is an international spy and helps Rick before leaving again. She wanted this in order to protect Castle from the organization LokSat.
Beckett talks to Rita, Castle's step-mother, about how she cannot let LokSat go. Rita tells Kate that "attachments are liabilities" and that she should "think twice about who you bring with you. Castle then surprises her on their one year anniversary and the pair decide to continue the investigation together. For one, the chemistry between the two lead actors seemed to be less and less believable as the show went on.
In the beginning, we were just getting to know their characters as they were getting to know each other.
