    Nothing like an up close and personal competition for feelings to come to the fore: poor Beckett, BUSTED!!

    Loved this episode! Definitely one of their best. I particularly loved the callback to "not asking very loudly", and Beckett getting to "tell the story" to Castle this time, and of course all the fun relationship tension between Beckett and Castle. I didn't mind so much that Alexis wasn't in this one, since Kyra was before her time anyway. But I really would've liked to see Kyra's reaction to Castle being a father. Seeing him as a strong parent despite his carefree ways could've added to the story, but the subject never even came up.

    Of course, one of the biggest highlights was the preview for the next episode, HEAVY!

    Nice episode, Kyra was believable as an ex of Castle, maybe turning him down due his wild ways ( Kyra's mother thought he had a poor character).

    Castle might have married Meredith ( the wild actress) in response to Kyra breaking it off with him. Had to have Alexis quickly after breaking off with Kyra to meet the show timeline( given I believe they are playing characters in their late 30's and Alexis being 16 now......).

    Now Castle is finally growing up under Beckett's tutorship.

    Loved how cool Beckett was when she had the pictures of Castle kissing Kyra..... ( did wonder how the photgrapher got up on the rooftop without being noticed).

    Not a bad episode, but its one of the only ones where i figured out who did it extremely early on. I would have figured it out without this, but it also isnt smart to have a potential suspect played by a familiar actor like they did in this episode, because that means they will be guaranteed to play a big part later on.

    Casablanca adaption.

    Very nice - kind of heavy-handed with the references though:

    Castle is "Rick".

    "Blaine" is Kyra's maiden name.

    "Of all the weddings in all the world"

    And so many more ...

    Not exactly a SUBTLE nod to the classic, by any means. Nice job all the same.

    As for the mystery ... the relative stardom of the actor cast as the murderer sort of soured the surprise. :S

    Castle 'charmed' by Alyssa Milano, great. Another top episode. Great to see Alyssa again, I have been following her since Who Is The Boss and since Charmed was ended her guest appearances are too infrequent.
