I liked last night. I even like the Alexis story line, I just dislike Pi. Or - more - I just do not like the choice of actor for Pi. I think it would have been much better with a really good looking guy who she could sort of "swoon" over and was a real threat to Castle's relationship with her. This guy is a dope.

PS: How many more people are going to tell Castle this is their life, their future! Sound familiar!!

I have to say, I found this MilMar episode, a huge disappointment, perhaps, the worst episode they have ever written, IMO. The plot was ludicrous, even allowing for the fact that the show is fiction. After last weeks episode, we are back to the usual Marlowe tactic of getting Caskett closer together, then the following week, showing no Caskett moments at all. Also, where is the engagement ring? Beckett was happy to wear it around her neck in DC, but not at the 12th, come on Marlowe. However, there was a good bit, Alexis and Pi are on their way, hopefully, 200 years in the future!! Let's hope next weeks episode is going to be better than this dross.

To joyeful.

I will hang my head and admit that I never watched Chuck...although I hear it was quite good and I probably would have enjoyed it. It's on my list of shows I'd like to marathon watch one day.

So that's why it wasn't mentioned in my review.

But I agree that Joshua Gomez did a great job as Simon Doyle. Always walking the edge of enthusiastic enough to be believed but crazy enough to be discounted. He made the time travel story work.

ALSO - I gotta say, I'm very surprised and disappointed by NO ONE so far (reviewer or commenters) mentioning that the guest star, time traveller Simon Doyle, was Joshua Gomez from Chuck. Morgan Grimes, people! How can we talk about being nerds and not recognize a guy from one of the geekiest shows on earth? :-)

I quite enjoyed this episode - it felt like old Castle, fun and light. For the first time in a long time, they managed to make Castle believe in wild theories without making him look like a buffoon LOL. Castle and Beckett's interactions were a lot of fun, as was the entire precinct. Great episode.

(sigh) I remember when I loved Alexis. Now I barely tolerate her. But I did love everything about Castle's reactions to Alexis' moving out.

How could you not know Castle/Beckett were in a relationship from this episode only? The "time traveller" said in the future they were married with 3 kids, Beckett told Castle Alexis was trying to figure herself out after they got together, Castle asked her if she tought it was about them, Beckett told him to think about their future...weren´t those hints enough?:)
I really liked this episode; as a convicted sceptical I didn´t buy the time travelling, but it was fun to watch and I liked they left it open to everyone believe in what they wanted!
About Alexis, altough I think it´s not wise moving in with a guy she barely met, she´s an adult now and has the right to make her mistakes and learn from them, it´s called growing up. And I´m glad she´s not doing it with her father´s money, that would be hard to swallow!
As for Castle...well it would always be hard for him to see his little girl go, no matter her age - as it is to any parent, I believe:)

running this alexis thing into ground-she is the smart one. just more crap to challenge castle's relationship with beckett. wouldn't even know they had a relationship from this episode. thought ep 4 was the best in a LONG time-crime mystery and emma were very good. just think they leave out too many important parts of this story/relationship. remember, knowing what to take out or leave in.

Loved the time travel part, especially how they left it rather ambiguous. I was kind of surprised at the Terminator reference; I was expecting a Time Trax shout out for some reason.
So now we've had Tim Russ, Nana Visitor, and Michael Dorn as guest actors. Who's next?

Who else has not told Castle beforehand about turning up at the Loft and showed no manners whatsoever and was totally self absorbed and selfish.

yes Alexis is merely copying her mother.

I would have thought Kate could call herself anything she wanted to be known as. If she marries her last name will be Castle.

She call call herself Senator Beckett or Castle unless the USA has different 'naming' rights to other countries.
