Castle Review: Shown the Trap Door

Jen,
Excellent comment. I've got three children, one starting high school and two adult age children, one out of school and working on his own and one still in school working part time and living at home. None of them would even think about treating my wife or me like Alexis is treating her father now, especially while we were still paying most of their expenses. Castle's response shouldn't be let's get ice cream, but you're cut off. You want to live your own life and make your own mistakes, great, you do it on your own money. I also agree that it is very sad that the writers decided her character needed to devolve into the typical smart alec, disrespectful, know it all teenager for television. What's wrong with showing a responsible young adult on TV. They really do exist in the real world.

I hated the fact that Beckett got fired, because I'm sure it will just be an excuse for for more Lady Becektt of Angst. Much better would have been for her to have seen the realtionship was more important than the job, especially given her poor fit with the job, and letting Castle know she was quitting to be with him. In other words, Beckett finally makes a sacrifice.

Tonya, I agree we'll never see an apology from Beckett for this odious DC matter because that would be tantamount to Marlow apoligizing to the fans for the whole Season 5 ending arc and he clearly is not ready to do so.

So sharing a drink with another man, telling intimate details of your life and letting him kiss you are signs of commitment to your partner? So if she had wild, screaming sex with Vaughn that means she and Castle are happily married for ever after?

c-see and Tonya, you're both right on the proposal. His response should have been, yes it does change things. I'll take the ring back, thanks. Enjoy spinsterhood.

As for Alexis, as the father of college age children, I say feel free to let me know that you really don't like the way I'm living my life, it's a free country. Just be sure to understand you're 18, a legal adult and I don't have to pay squat for you if I don't want to. Good luck paying for Columbia on your own, now get this loser out of my house before I call the cops.

Yes! I've been blocked for days. In addition to the illogic of the job and the odiousness of PI, could Beckett be less affectionate? I understand keeping it in while you're working, but no hug and kiss in the hospital? She showed more emotion after she shot the guy who killed her mother.

Vince, nottrampis, couldn't agree more (please no moderation).

Tonya, that was the main reason I hated the whole he's a writer, he can live anywhere attitude. New York has also been his home for his entire life, so yes it is a big deal to expect him to move, especially because of job, that as nottrampis has pointed out, pre-season 5 Beckett wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole

Tonya B, thanks, I've been travelling a lot so little time to post. Those quotes are very disappointing as it sounds like they're just going to keep Castle in odious comic relief mode.
Vince, I agree if what she needs to tell him is she got the offer and they need to talk it would help redeem Beckett from the terrible person she was in the last three episodes. Unfortunately based on what she said to the boys she has already accepted the job, so Castle gets to be the odious comic relief doormat apparently.
