For example, in the recent episode about the dead weathergirl, Beckett catches Castle playing around with the blue-screen setup. He doesn't know she's watching him act like a big kid, and as she's watching him she smiles (which I interpret as a reminder to her of why she likes him in the first place, 'cause he's a bit of a goofball man-child). Likewise, at the start of that episode (or the one before), Beckett is in a bra trying to pick out a shirt to wear to work, and Castle keeps telling her "no, not that one", and she realizes he's only doing it to see her keep taking her shirt off.
I was super scared that they'd be stuck with the Moonlighting curse, but there was really no more ways to keep them apart. I liked the episode where the parents and them got together for dinner. When they were in hiding and she talked to him about her concerns about their relationship. And in the last episode where they both have their reasons for their traditions or Christmas, but are willing to break them at the end. They're not together 24/7. They still show their differences and how they're adjusting.
