So far in Castle season 5, Castle and Beckett's love affair has gone pretty well. Sure, they've had some bumps in the road, but mostly it's been smooth sailing. Well it looks like the duo may be headed for their first spat and you'll never guess what it's about. 

Wetpaint recently spoke to Castle creator Andrew Marlowe about an upcoming episode of the show where our favorite couple is going to go through their fair share of challenges. 

Marlowe said: We have an episode that starts off with a "Meet the Parents" dinner that doesn't go well. It causes a little bit of stress between Castle and Beckett. And as they're investigating a murder, they have to go pick up the witness to the murder, and they're bringing the witness into the 12th precinct when they suddenly get jumped. They lose their phones, their badge. Beckett doesn't have her gun, and they're on the run in a bad part of town in the middle of the night with no way to get back to the precinct, in the midst of having a little bit of a couple's spat. So it's tense and fun at the same time.

When asked about the dinner meeting of Castle's mom Martha and Beckett's dad Jim, Marlow said: Well, let's just say they don't hit it off in the way the kids had hoped they would because they're two very different people. And of course, it makes Castle and Beckett think, "Well, we're two very different people. Are we looking at our future here? If they can't get along, what does that mean about us?" It's all sorts of fun. So we explore that along the way.

Well it certainly sounds like Castle and Beckett are going to have their hands full in that episode. I can't imagine that, after all that they've been through, they would let something like this get between them. But I do wonder how much tension we'll see between them before they finally go back to being lovebirds. 

What do you think of this new about Castle and Beckett's parents meeting up and the couple getting into what could be their first big fight? 

Castle airs on Mondays at 10pm on ABC.
