LOS ANGELES (AP) — A stakeout leads to a smooch on ABC's crime drama "Castle," with Rick Castle and Kate Beckett finally sharing their first kiss.
Played by series stars Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic, the pair locked lips in a scene filmed outside a downtown warehouse late Thursday for a January episode. The air date wasn't announced.
As "Castle" fans know, the show's weekly whodunits share equal weight with the will-they-or-won't-they romance conundrum for the lead characters.
"Castle" has become a hit for ABC, routinely landing in the top 20 in the Nielsen ratings and attracting more than 10 million viewers weekly in its third season. It's also inspired mystery novels published under Castle's name and featuring a fictional heroine, Detective Nikki Heat, based on the fictional Beckett.
