Character Bio

Javier Esposito photo
Before joining the 12th precinct as a homicide detective, Javier "Javi" or "Espo" Esposito served in the Army Special Forces and was an officer in the Organized Crime Task Force at the 54th precinct. Alongside his partner Detective Ryan, they work tirelessly with Detective Beckett to solve murders and bring killers to justice.

Spoilers Ahead!!!

He is always ready with a sardonic comment to keep Beckett on her toes and enjoys the way Castle riles her. Esposito is a loyal partner and a dedicated cop. Even in the face of adversity, he’s got his game face on and nothing can break him. Esposito is very intuitive. He recognizes Castle and Beckett's attraction from the start and sometimes advises Beckett on her relation to Castle.

Esposito and Kevin Ryan are close friends, even though they constantly argue about obscure facts. He had a brief relationship with Dr. Lanie Parish in the third season, which ended with things being awkward between them making them unable to work around each other for some time. He was suspended from the NYPD for hiding vital information from Captain Gates in a case concerning Beckett's well-being. In that case, he felt betrayed by his partner, Det. Kevin Ryan. He has since been reinstated on the force and has reconciled with Ryan.

Javier Esposito: Perlmutter just called. Turns out that baggie from Lara's stomach? Pure uncut heroin.
Kevin Ryan: Uncut? No wonder she only swallowed one baggie. That 8-Ball has a street value of $30k.
Kate Beckett: Uncut heroin comes directly from the cartel, so how does a dancer from Michigan get her hands on that?

Therapist: So I take it there's been little progress since our last session.
Kevin Ryan: [sardonic laugh] No, not with his trust issues.
