It will be interesting to see the Live TV Ratings & DVR viewings for episodes 6x6 and 6x7 given all those new promotional pictures which include Alexis, but no Beckett. I will have my remote handy in order to MUTE the Alexis scenes if needed. If they want Alexis to be in the show, the writers need to use her in a better way. Use her in scenes with Beckett to make Beckett and Castl's relationship seem that much more solid. Her character is irritating and superfluous. Alexis is not important enough to the storyline to justify her being used for so many episodes in this kind of ongoing drama over her relationship with Castle. IMHO

Someone needs to remind the obnoxious little redhead about the time when she was so smart that she posted enough private information on a public blog that kidnappers were easily able to grab her and her friend. Then her father had to risk his life and his fortune (over 3 million in ransom money) to go to a foreign country to save her ass. If she has learned nothing after that hard lesson and still thinks that she is smarter than her dad, then it is time for him to dish out some hard love and cut her off completely. I doubt Martha paid for his college education so why should he continue to pay for his brat child when she treats him like an idiot?

who knows Keith?

One thing is clear nobody does and we would like to

@nottrampis - I'm not sure it's a matter of responsible/irresponsible and one becoming the other unnaturally. Alexis lately seems out of character (besides being dislikable in my opinion) and I'm not sure if it's a real change or a new direction out of the blue or if the show's creators even see it??? I could read the extremely calm discussion where Alexis reminds her father she's smarter than him as her saying instead that she's been waiting for this opportunity to put him in his place -- except that I can't believe the show intends anything like that, so what do they mean?????

wow, some of you have a different point of view to me to moving in with someone. I was secular but never got that far but it essentially the same thing as marriage but with flexibility.
It an\int no minor thing.

Where were those walls?

Christine we no longer have one cents or two cents in OZ!!

My minor ,stress minor, point regarding Alexis is that in my house and most other families i know of 'responsible teenagers simply remain responsible teenagers. It is the irresponsible one that continue to be irresponsible.
( of course we clam great parenting when they are responsible!!)

i would like a small, stress ,small. line about why this is happening.

Christine. Thanks for the response. We know that Kate was a rebellious teenager and your college comments make sense for sure. With Kate just saying 'first guy' in such a casual manner just bothered me given her well established good character. I was annoyed because there was no explanation and it distracted me from the rest of the case. If Castle had just responded by asking Kate what later happened with her father OR if Kate had just said that she was 18 at the time and it was foolish would have been more credible instead of just leaving it with nothing else said by them. This issue was just one of many unexplained things in this episode for me.

notrtrampis - You're not kidding about the wardrobe! What I wouldn't give to have just one of her Burberry coats.

Vince - I didn't have a problem with Kate saying she moved in with a guy when she was young. They've mentioned many times that she was a rebellious teen. I know a few of girls who casually lived with boyfriends in their early college years. Some just to get out of the dorm rooms!

I think comparing it to her living with Castle now is apples and oranges. As a teen/early 20s she wouldn't have put as much thought into it. Now it really means something. Plus she just may be waiting for Castle to ask which we haven't seen him do. Moving in together in DC would have been just them. In NYC his family is there too, so it's a bit different. Just my 2 cents.

Great review Christine. I like that you understood what was happening with Alexis. So many people are getting upset with her. She is a young woman finding her way. Again I love that we see Father and Daughter talking through a disagreement and not yelling and slamming doors.
The spilled coffee was a wonderful way to put some questions into Kate's head. I wonder if we will see Doyle return sometime in the future?
