‘Castle’ Season 6: They’ve Got Some Esplanie To Do

Castle at Bridge NEW

As fans of the long-running ABC series Castle know, there is more than the Caskett (Castle and Beckett) relationship that is focused on in the show. The other popular couple is the combination of Lanie (series regular Tamala Jones) and Esposito (series regular Jon Huertas) otherwise known as Esplanie to fans.

In the beginning, Lanie and Espo kept their relationship quiet – or at least so they thought – but they weren’t keeping it quiet because everyone else was aware they were doing more than just dating.

But not that much later, sadly, Esplanie came to a crashing end due to neither of them being ready to take their relationship to the next level. Just as quickly as it ended, though, the duo started venturing back into the world of dating especially around the time of the show’s 100th episode that aired this past April.

According to a report at TV Guide, Lanie and Esposito may not be bound “for a grand romance”, but series creator Andrew W. Marlowe shared that we just might figure out why their relationship fell apart. He shared that “I think we owe it to the fans to give them an explanation of what’s going on in their relationship”.

In an interview with TV Guide, Tamala Jones shared that “because the Twitter fans have gone ballistic” about wanting to know where Esplanie is going, “Andrew has found a very intelligent way to execute what the fans want to see with what he already has in store”.

NOTE: This same article also shared that Marlowe is “cooking up a Lanie story that will explore her history”. (YAY!!)

Fans can expect “some hallmark” moments between the couple “towards the end of the fall” with Marlowe sharing with TV Line that “we’re taking a look at our secondary characters and having fun with them

In a report at Entertainment Weekly, Esplanie will venture into “darker territory” this month when “a serial killer arises who seems to have a fixation on Lanie and maybe (even) Esposito, [and] knows about their relationship. It’s an episode that has a number of surprising twists and challenges everybody at the 12th Precinct in a significant way”.

The next new episode of the 6th season of ‘Castle’ will air on ABC tomorrow night, November 18 at 10/9c.
