For a man who is as good with the ladies as Richard Castle, he certainly does manage to get himself into the worst situations with the ones closest to him. In "Significant Others," this week’s episode ofCastle, Meredith, his ex-wife/mother of his daughter, showed up to take care of Alexis during her freshman mono (almost a prerequisite to graduation)…and Castle invited her to stay at his place.
Unfortunately, Beckett was also staying there while her apartment was being fumigated. Three isn’t a crowd; it’s an awkward mess. Beckett made it clear she resented the situation (somewhat understandably), and Castle tried to smooth things over in his usual way (with expensive hotel roomsand champagne), but getting out of the situation proved far trickier than getting into it. Especially when it seemed like Meredith was going out of her way to make Beckett feel like the third wheel.
