INTERVIEW: Castle’s Jon Huertas on Ryan & Esposito’s Falling Out

On Monday night’s Season 5 premiere of Castle, we saw Detective Esposito and Detective Ryan back in action together, but it wasn’t without some obvious tension.

Esposito, who is currently on temporary suspension from the 12th precinct, is holding a serious grudge against his former partner for what went down in the Season 4 finale. But Ryan doesn’t see it the way Espo does — Ryan told Gates the truth about Beckett’s plan to track down Cole Maddox to save her life. And it worked.

Nonetheless, it’s going to take a while for Esposito to fully understand Ryan’s motives, according to Castle star Jon Huertas. Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with the actor at last week’s ALMA awards, where he dished about what’s in store for the pair’s bromance — plus, details on Castle and Beckett’s relationship, and, of course, the status of Esplanie!
