Loved the Castle premiere, but what was Castle doing with a half-naked woman in the promos for the next episode? —
ADAM:
As creator Andrew W. Marlowe  already teased, that encounter is a consequence of Castle pretending to be single in order to keep his relationship with Beckett a secret from their co-workers.
