I don't like it in shows when the bad guy gets off. Even less do I like any inference that murder is a positive way to carry out your fanatical ideology -- which, I'm sorry, but is how I took this. Bella and Holmes were fun, so this was otherwise a good episode, but the conclusion does and will bother me.
What you're saying is true and all (and exactly what they did), but Castle plays games and fantasy role-playing and, much like the end of Quigley Down Under, it would have been fun and not so far from the realm of possibility that Castle could have turned out to win a quick draw in the climax. Just for fun, not realism.
They've definitely changed the dynamic between Holmes and Watson. I wonder where it will lead. Holmes and Watson may not have equal talent, but each is capable of doing the job alone that they used to do together (sort of like a boss leaves a company, an assistant is promoted and does the job successfully for a year, the the boss decided to return and right off shows off his superior skills). What's the interaction going to be like? I'm not sure how it can be even friendly unless something changes/develops. I like both characters and will be watching to see what they'll do, but I admit I'm a little afraid the show will fade away.
