Maybe I'm the only one but I found Kate a bit annoying "he said he'd be back in the fall and it's fall so clearly he has better things to do" like I'm sorry Castle didn't HAVE to call you first.. it is your precint, maybe he was thinking that since you hadn't called it'd be rude for him to just show up? As far as he knows you're with Demming and he wanted to give you your space... like I'm sorry but to me Castle did nothing wrong in not calling. At least from what we know at the start.
Sure he could've called, but it does go both ways. Same with Alexis' situation. Unless someone specifically says "I'll call you" and they don't, then it's just as much your responsibility to call as theirs. So I thought the hate on Castle was completely ridiculous. But I liked how they brought him back in. I've always liked that they had ways of making sure Castle comes back to the team in a good way and not just "oh he called the mayor - well fine".
While Castle being at the scenes is yes suspicious she was also being a bit ridiculous and over the top in her behaviour and questioning. And jeez at Ryan firing the gun and how they're yelling at him. Ah well, not my favourite episode for the script/acting on the cops part. "oh so you're in a relationship" it's a phonecall! "no I bought "have you had sex" "well why were you there" well you'd know if you'd shut up and let him finish. Her anger is completely unjustified! So by their logic, Castle should be justified in shooting them and being angry because they didn't call him either!
Sorry guys, the further through the episode I get the lower my rating goes ha. Like I said my reviews are purely nitpicks, you can see what the episode is about from someone else or you know, by watching it. I don't need to read a walk through in reviews I want people's thoughts.
I'm a girl, who's had male friends go away.. and I didn't blame them for not calling. While I get Alexis being upset her dad was trying to justify, he should be on her side in her mind but Martha saying "that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard"? "Lock him up out of spite"
You were all over some guy in front of him, knowing that he liked you, so he went away thinking it's what you wanted! And you should be able to figure that out Kate! It's not ridiculous to think that maybe she doesn't want you around anymore, and then you do see her and they're all dickheads to you, well why would he want to call you now.
And when Castle finally said "you ever thought I was waiting for you to call" or whatever, she gives him this ridiculous look... yeah ok, you're all being over the top annoying this episode.
