Looks like Pi might be out of the picture for good. Alexis ignored her Dad's questions about Pi on their road trip to Pa. Maybe Alexis doesn't have the guts to tell her Dad that Pi left her. If this happens,wouldn't this be a great time for Alexis to have a nice talk to Beckett about men!

Our roy montgomery,

I am tending to think There is something going on with Alexis and Pi. They cannot be that bad at acting.

Thus they are not in love so there is something else going on BUt what is it?

nottrampis. Castle endures emotional abuse from his daughter in order to reconnect with her because he loves her. Alexis keeps kicking him down with verbal abuse. She takes advantage of him for her own needs in order to get help on the death row case. Alexis knows that she was wrong with her behavior at the loft, but she just tells him I need your help. She won’t tell him she is sorry about Pi intrusion. Instead, she uses him as a small child would in order to feel better. This episode did nothing except to show her real immaturity. At times, she acted like a mean high school teenager rather than a 19 year old college student. To use 7 episodes to get to this point in their relationship makes no sense at all.

A 19 year old teenager never has life figured out. Show me one who does and I'll show you a fairy tale! This show is supposed to imitate real life and does it very well. It's not a soap or a fairy tale with a happy ending. One of the reasons I like it is because it does present issues in real life, which is never the same for everyone. I know, I've raised 2 kids that are now in their 20's. Both very different in every way. 19 year olds need parenting just like 10 year olds...parents really never stop parenting. The Castle/Alexis bond is very strong. Both have behaved badly and both share blame. They will figure it out, just like in real life!

Sorry, but not all 19 year olds need parenting. I met my wife while we were both in college working on co-op assignments. When we were married, she was 19 years old, I was 21 years old. I raised two children myself. That is real life! My experience is not a fairy tale. My wife never treated her father with such disrespect as portrayed in this pathetic Alexis arc.

Interesting--but did your wife get kidnapped and sent to Paris where she almost died? Did her Dad nearly die 3 times in a year? Did her mother leave her? This is Alexis fate. Not at all typical.

Captain Cook, I share Our roy montgomery's feeling that Alexis took away from some good Castle episodes.

Why does Marlowe have so much angst in this series?
It doesn't happen in real life and it ain't good TEEVE so why?

Beg to differ, this stuff does happen in real life because I've lived it. Kids from divorced homes struggle with fitting in, merging families, and belonging. It's tough, even at Alexis age when she's had her dad all to herself to figure out how to share and fit in. Since in the US, the divorce rate is 50%+, I'd say this is true to life, unfortunately so!

Nottrampis. I agree, the Examiner analysis was old cobblers. In my opinion, you earn respect from your parents, and Alexis has not. All she has ever done is take, she needs to grow up.

sorry Castlefan1212 but that is a lot of old cobblers.
alexis cane home and without even asking her father just brought in Pi . and then she and he behaved very poorly.
Castle reacts accordingly.

and as I say if these two jerks are in love then how come they do not show it!
It is bad acting or is there something going to occur in the future?

Think Kate answered a lot of questions over multiple episodes. She clearly stated that was the case. Both Castle and Alexis were at fault period. I'd rather follow a Castle "groupie" than folks who seem to never be happy with anything done on the show. I try to balance good and bad, find entertainment value and if I can't I move on! Well done, Kate Jennings!

@ nottrampis

The author of that Examiner article (Kate Jennings) is a Castle groupie. During the hiatus, she predicted that Kate would say 'Not Yet' to the proposal. She is off the rails on most of her articles. She has an inside track to most of the Castle writers for interviews. I still think that somebody in that writers room had a Pi character in their past life. Her Pi comments in that article pretty much confirm that for me.
