    Hope you were able to watch last night's Castle episode, entitled "Hong Kong Hustle". It gave us a tiny glimpse into what kinds of things "Beckett" thinks about regarding her life, career and future with Castle... along with several of Castle's funny attempts to appease and even encourage his wife that she truly is THE BEST! Definitely a must-see episode in the 'Evolution of Caskett' and for every fan looking to the future for this beloved couple and for the entire Precinct Team. "Hong Kong Hustle" was directed by Jann Turner and written by Chad Creasey.
