First off, to all the Caskett fans out there who were/are still are complaining about not enough relationship moments…here you go! Lets face the reality right now, “Caskett” moments from here on out will never be like they were from the beginning. Back then they weren’t together, you can tell that they had a lot of sexual tension, they somewhat teased/made the other one jealous on purpose & sometimes not on purpose. Marlowe & the producers had to magnetize their “Caskett” moments because it was reminder to the audience “don’t forget guys, they need to get together!” We have to realize that yeah they are together now so the producers don’t have to continuously remind us. The Caskett moments will still be there, but they are going to be presented in a different way.
What I love most about this scene is that it was simple, yet pretty dang adorable!
When I saw that the drawer was empty, I was literally Caskett fan girling so hard (like most of you Caskett fans out there, hopefully!) because I was like “aww she gave him his own space at her place.” I thought it was a great present to Castle 🙂 The drawer doesn’t just represent a Valentine’s Day present, it represents the next step in their relationship. We’ve known since the beginning of this series that Beckett had her walls & wouldn’t let anyone in. Castle took the time to break down those walls until she let him into her life. Beckett is telling Castle that he is completely in her life right now and she just wanted to make sure he knew that. The look on Castle’s face was like a little kid on Christmas day when Beckett said “It is the drawer. It’s your drawer.”
Even though the drawer isn’t big, you have to realize that when you give someone (that can potentially break your heart) a personal space of yours, it is a pretty big deal. This is also another step towards Beckett saying those 3 words to Castle. You can tell that she is slowly getting there & Castle realizes that.
