* FakeFirstKiss: In ''[[WhamEpisode Knockdown]]''. Castle and Beckett kiss in order to [[FakeOutMakeOut appear less suspicious]] while trailing a suspect. Pictures of the kiss were circulating in the media over a month before the episode aired. The characters finally get together [[spoiler:a season and a half later.]]

* InterrogationMontage: Found in "Deep In Death." Beckett, Ryan, and Esposito simultaneously interrogate three members of a drug gang about a murder.
* InventedInvalid: When Castle's ditzy first ex-wife Meredith comes back into town, she at one point tells their daughter Alexis' high school that her grandmother has died so can she please be excused from classes. She neglects to mention that said grandmother died several years ago; she really just wanted to take Alexis shopping.
* InTouchWithHisFeminineSide: Castle displays several of these traits, no doubt at least partly as a result of having been raised by a single mother and in turn having been a single parent to a teenage daughter. Ryan has also been increasingly this as a result of his relationship with Jenny, much to alpha male manly-man Esposito's amusement.



* TheInfiltration: Ryan goes undercover to take down a Staten Island gang in "The Wild Rover". He uses the advantage that he'd infiltrated the gang years before... and a former lover from that infiltration who turned into an informant.

** [[spoiler: The beginning of the sixth season has Castle and Beckett trying to manage this while Beckett is working as a federal agent in DC]].
* LoopholeAbuse: When Castle got himself banned from precinct due to [[spoiler:his relationship with mob]], he tried (unsuccessfully) to bypass the ban by getting the PI licence so he could pretend to conduct his own investigation on behalf of a client.
** Then Beckett forwarded relative of the victim of the week, who had her own interest in the case (finding her missing expensive purse), to the Castle as a client so he could indirectly work with her on the case.
** Finally, when Castle was charged with [[spoiler:assault with deadly weapon]], Gates joined in on the fun and talked DA into sentencing him to one thousand hours of community services [[TheUnishment as a consultant for detective Beckett and 12th precinct]].
* LoveConfession: In the season 4 finale ("Always"), [[spoiler:Beckett]], at the end, gives us one of the greatest in television history.
-->[[spoiler:'''Beckett''': He got away, and I didn't care. I almost died, and the only thing I could think about was you. I just want you.]]
** [[spoiler:Castle also gives one]] earlier in the episode:
--> [[spoiler:'''Castle:''' Because of everything we've been through together! Four years I've been right here! Four years just waiting for you to open your eyes to see that I'm right here! And that I'm more than a partner... Every morning I bring a cup of coffee just so that I can see a smile on your face because I think you are the most... remarkable... maddening... challenging... frustrating person I've ever met... And I love you, Kate and... if that means anything to you, if you care about me at all, just don't do this.]]

* LyricalDissonance: Episodes often begin with cheerful, bouncy tunes being played over scenes of horrific violence. A good example is the episode "Home is Where the Heart Stops", which begins with "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9A58_LRXF_w Birds of a Feather]]" by The Rosenbergs, a perky, light, bouncy love song, being played over blood-soaked images of a woman who has been shot, bent in half forcibly, and stuffed into a wall safe.
** Also in "Nanny [=McDead=]", with Pink's "So What" played over the discovery of a girl (the aforementioned nanny) in a washing machine.

* GainaxEnding: The finale. The show's writers were operating off the assumption that they had gotten a ninth season, but one week before the Season 8 finale aired, [[CutShort ABC cancelled the show.]] The resulting ending made viewers' heads spin: [[spoiler: [[DiabolusExMachina Caleb Brown turns out not to be dead and shoots Castle]], followed by Beckett returning fire at Brown [[MutualKill but not before he shoots her as well.]] A badly injured Castle & Beckett are then seen laying on the ground seemingly dying next to each other. Then we suddenly cut to a scene that is set [[TimeSkip 7 years later]] with the two of them eating dinner with 3 children.]] It is pretty clear what happened was a case of two endings being spliced together at the last minute. The fanbase had a field day trying to make sense of it, with theories ranging from [[spoiler: that Castle & Beckett really did die and the "7 years later" scene was just a DyingDream, or that the whole series was [[AllJustADream just the plot of one of Castle's novels]], with only the 1st episode being "real" and that Castle & Beckett are just a normal author & cop married in real life without all the crazy adventures of the series. Then there's the theory that simply takes the ending at face value: they made an UnexplainedRecovery and managed to EarnYourHappyEnding.]]

** In "An Embarrassment of Bitches", the seemingly vapid "celebrity bimbo" Kay Cappuccio turns out to be more intelligent (if still somewhat ditzy), sensitive and lonely than expected. This is probably an ActorAllusion to one of Hilarie Burton's previous roles as the smart, brooding artist Peyton Sawyer from the show OneTreeHill.
