| Lanie is a Medical Examiner and a forensics analyst for the NYPD. Lanie seems to have a well-developed social life, and has occasionally arrived at a crime scene dressed for a date. |
She and Beckett are good friends as well as colleagues, and the two occasionally hit the town together. As far as Castle is concerned, Lanie does frequently find him amusing, but she was also happy to cut him off when Beckett was angry with him.
Her longstanding flirtation with Esposito becomes a full-blown relationship in season 3. But their relationship comes to an end over the topic of marriage: Esposito for marriage and Lanie against it (confirmed by Terri Edda on Twitter). The volatile couple appeared to be headed towards a reconciliation at Ryan's wedding.
