I am very glad to see Strauss go! She most definitely did not contribute to the group's cohesiveness. Her departure will most likely give the other characters more room for development.
Hopefully, when they bring it back in the fall it won't be on the same day and time as The Good Wife so that we don't have to choose which one to watch.
This episode was awesome! I, too, was surprised that Montgomery was the third cop. It also appears at the end as if Beckett dies - glad to hear that they didn't kill her off since without the interaction between Castle and Beckett there would be no show.
