My comments on Alexis; writer's write and actors act! Alexis' behavior has been inconsistent for the past 1-1/2 seasons without full explanation-between mature and immature. I have kids that were her age (19 or 20) at one time and I think her behavior is typical. Not to mention what person I was at 20. Easy to forget where we've been or were at her age. She's been sheltered, protected, and just recently moved off to college. A parent doesn't stop parenting just because their child goes to college or moves out. Furthermore, parents provide whenever or whatever they can based upon their resources. Rick has also never parented a 20 year old, so he's figuring out as he goes. Alexis has never seemed to have an issue with Kate, so this may be more about Alexis finding herself than Caskett. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Castle had a background check done on Pi (remember the violin teacher)! So, I'll just trust in Marlow and see how it goes. As for Pi, he comes from a different culture and who knows how he was raised. Again, I'll wait and see.

Just a small thing but Espo, Ryan and everyone would be angry with Beckett going off to Dc without telling them at all.

You wouldn't see applause in OZ. Minor matter though.

Loved the episode. After the last three, I was looking forward to something a bit more lighthearted even though Castle got shot! Didn't see it coming but that's why I'm SPREE. Glad to have the gang back.

Two things were on my mind while I watched. First, why isn't Castle's bedroom door locked when Beckett stays the night? Maybe he forgot?

Second, after Ryan announced that Beckett was back, I was expecting (hoping for?) an engagement announcement. And yes I too was caught off guard by how quickly the kiss-at-the-12th scene abruptly ended although I do get to cross that off my Castle Bucket List, lol!

In case anyone is interested I looked at the implications for caskett if Beckett got promoted at my tumblr blog!
bottom line We do not know. Unlike the DC job there are not a lot of large red lights here merely amber ones. ( do you have amber lights in the USA?)

I agree with Captain Cook and Our Roy Montgomery.

One thing the writers are consistent about is Castle never being firm with anyone.

I think a nice touch in the episode would have been for Castle to suggest to Gates he ring his mate the Mayor and then Gates to say let's wait on that. i have an idea.

Pete. It is a matter for a father and daughter. A mature daughter (19 years old) should realize that the father will be the same in spite of the new relationship. Alexis is not a child. She is a woman. I don’t see AWM creating tension between Kate and Castle over it. I am sure that Kate will be respectful of that adjustment in a manner that will not become an issue between them. IMO

What i meant was the conflict between father and daughter will in turn cause tension between R&K,that is very common in relationships when dealing with a potential step father or in this case a step mother.

pete. I think the tension will happen only between Alexis and Castle. I don’t see AWM creating tension between Castle and Kate at this point. Castle is the one not acting like a parent.

ukno. After 4 episodes, fans are fast losing interest in the current Alexis portrayal as selfish and immature without some kind of sensible resolution. Whatever AWM intended with the connection, it is not working. The Pi character presents as some kind of porn actor with that mustache. It just seems like another AWM misstep in his storytelling. IMO

I believe pi is there for one reason,its alexis's way of lashing/rebelling at dad,the two of them will bring tension to R&K relationship.

Vince. AWM must have a reason for the Pi character, but for the life of me, I cannot see what it can be. You are right, however, Alexis is being written and portrayed as a selfish inconsiderate brat, and the fans will soon tire of this behaviour. AWM constantly refers to what happens in real life, well, in real life, her behaviour and Pi's appalling rudeness, would simply not be tolerated. Castle needs to grow some balls and kick them both out, and see how they survive on their own, without Castle's money. We all know it will not happen this way, but resolution of this scenario needs to happen quickly, IMO.
