You're so right about all that. And the characters interactions......the fast pace...... at the end I went back and watched it through again, and even knowing the ending, and picking up on litttle things I missed the first time, it was still over so quickly. As long as you didn't dwell on the whole staging-the-stunts part, it was great.
My feeling with the dress is that it looks somewhat unfinished. The blue is beautiful on Kate and the shape shows off her physique, but the white tulle is too big a contrast. If the see through fabric of the arms also covered the white of the skirt it would look complete.
I think it would be really funny if it turned out there was some conspiracy theory worthy of Castle himself.
For example maybe Pi actually has some amazing unarmed combat skills, and was hired by Castle's father to keep a watchful eye on Alexis while she was in Costa Rica. Maybe he was supposed to keep a respectful distance, but Alexis noticed his interest in her and rather liked it.
Anyway, just as Pi totally annoys me, and Alexis' behaviour does too, I've been so impressed with the great plot twists Andrew Marlowe and his amazing writing team have come up with so far, it's hard to imagine that there's not something in the wind.
