ABC’s ‘Castle’ season 5 spoilers: When will the secret be out?

Even though Castle and Beckett have seen their relationship progress to some extent on “Castle” season 5, there is one problem: many of their employees at the station still have no idea that it is going on, with the most important person being Captain Gates. Sure, they are starting to be more open with each other away from their homes … but there’s a big difference between a private and public relationship, especially when you spend most of your time stopping bad guys.

We all know that eventually, this secret will come out … so when will it be? Executive producer Andrew W. Marlowe is for now staying coy, even though he did have the following to say on the general subject to TV Guide:

“We’re going to move beyond it. There’s only so much storytelling we can sustain … Capt. Gates is certainly the big issue. How is she going to react? Is that going to threaten the partnership?”

At the end of the day, we see Gates’ biggest concern being that Castle and Beckett together couple jeopardize the integrity of their jobs, mostly because their feelings for each other could compromises cases at any given moment. However, there is a problem with breaking them up: who would be Rick’s new muse? At this point, it’s hard to argue that they are a package deal. In addition to that, their record of success with the precinct really speaks for itself at this point.

How long do you think that Castle and Beckett will be able to continue their little charade? Be sure to share some of your thoughts with a comment below!
