Castle is a witty drama based on a famous crime and horror novelist, Rick Castle, who is suffering from a writers block after killing off the main character in his novels. While struggling to come up with a replacement, Det. Kate Beckett of the NYPD approached him and asked to help catch the copy-cat killer staging murders based on scenes from his novels.
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.
