Agree. It just seems like the writers are stalling the issue for no apparent reason. Recall that Castle bought the DC apartment for them on his own and she was ecstatic about it. Your point about the rent control is well taken.
Agree. Great point. I just don't want to watch some kind of insecurity arc forthcoming by Marlowe.
I wondered about that statement to Lanie myself. Castle needs to ask Kate why she is keeping the apartment if she's calling his loft "home" and talking about "our bedroom." If so many viewers are asking the question, Castle should be as well. Also, I thought it was weird that after Kate asks Castle to move the Linus picture, and he does, she tells him he didn't need to do that and she sounded really sincere about it. Having the "old" apartment gives her leverage and it reminds me from earlier seasons about her tendency to look at relationships in terms of "keeping one foot out the door".
Tonya B. Good point about the apartment. The writers need to be careful with this because it could start getting "ugly". It is increasingly coming over like Kate is using her apartment as a refuge point. If she is living with Castle, she can’t just walk out the door to her "old home" when something happens. You can understand her wanting to get out of the loft when Pi was wandering around their bedroom in an earlier episode, but that was weeks ago. There is more talk next episode about wedding venues, but they never talk about moving in together given that we are already 8 episodes into the season.
In reality, Hunt is a CIA assassin. Bracken is small fish. What if Pi is a spy trying to get access to Hunt so he can finally eliminate him. Alexis was just his access point to get to Hunt. It still makes no sense that no background check done on Pi after lost passport excuse. Also, the father returning could become a moral dilemma if Castle and Beckett uncover concrete evidence while working on a case that his father committed a murder (in the name of his job) and it doesn't sit well with Castle at all.
Totally Agree. I suppose that side of Castle comes from his father, the spy killer. Recall from 5x15 "Target" what his father did to Roger Henson to get him to talk. He tortured him and then executed him. When Jackson Hunt returns, I think we will see a dark side of spy daddy that is not favorable towards having a lasting relationship with Castle.
Check out the 6x9 promo. Our alpha male Castle is beating the crap out of somebody and he is mad as hell. He only acts like that when his Kate is in danger. This writer (David Amann) did the 3XK episode as well as most of the other dark episodes(Setup, Pandora, Target)
I agree with others here who think the writers did a good job dividing time between Castle and Beckett and Ryan and Esposito. It was good to see Gates again, and it was good that the episode was Alexis FREE. I enjoyed the shootout with Ryan and Esposito, but a lot of bullets flying with nobody hit? Scenes like that have been missing since Season 3. There were a lot of twists and turns in the case to the point that the ending was still unknown with only 4 minutes left in the episode. I think the case idea was a little too grand for a 1-hour show. The new writing couple had to cram too much in towards the end. After the suspect wife indicated in the first interview with Beckett that they were a power couple that gave her away as the killer for me based on so many parallel stories from past seasons. The one thing that continues to bother me is that our couple never discusses their living arrangements. By avoiding that issue it draws even bigger attention to the fact they're NOT doing something they should. It all seems to go back to Marlowe giving something to the fans without really giving it to them. Given their ages and the length of the engagement, most couples would have moved in together before now. It already feels increasingly forced after weeks of silence on the matter. Suddenly Kate's back in the loft without explanation and talking of "home" again. She has been sleeping in the loft for almost a year now. It didn't bother me last season, but since they were all set to live with each other in DC, I don't understand the stalling now. Also, it presents that Kate is using the threat of going home to "her apartment" for leverage every time something happens she's not happy about and she feels Castle needs to step up. I just wish they would hurry on getting Beckett moved in. The baby episode is in two weeks.
Now that Kate and Alexis hugged in the end scene, does that mean Alexis will be a bridesmaid in the wedding? You just know that Marlowe will do that to the fans for criticism of the Alexis arc. Pi will look great in a tux with that mustache.
Healthcliff. Season 3, Episode 1, "A Deadly Affair" Interrogation Room scene "No, I don't sweetheart, but that don't mean it ain't true.'"
