Yeah, that was the sole reason why I didn't started thinking that the counter terrorist guy (the flying dude from Heroes) was in on it, because no way he'd play a bad guy. (When the story shifted to misguided "patriots", I started thinking though, that I can see him do...)

The whole episode was good, but the "great" moment was Castle's poker face at the end. Excellent delivery tying into the whole story.

Although, as it turned out, Davison was NOT actually the killer. He was just involved in the cover-up.

But story-wise, he was the featured culprit nonetheless.

I expected the brother to be the killer since 1) I recognized him from October Road (he was also in Happy Town but I didn't watch that), and 2) when Alexis was talking about doing the right thing while not ratting out her friends, it made sense regarding the mystery since Alexis-Dad talks always happen to relate exactly to the mystery. But they only made the brother an accomplice.

Yeah, I had no idea who actually poisoned the guy, but I knew the DA was upp to no good. Overall an entertaining episode.

Agreed though that the daughter is getting into territory.

Well, I wouldn't go that far. I still adore Alexis. I just think this episode was rubbing it in a little. And Castle not trusting his daughter has been too much of a recurring theme this season, and that makes him look bad.

^I totally agree with you. Unless she really gives him a reason not to trust her I think the writers should give it a rest.

Also count me in as someone who though Bruce Davison was going to be the killer. In the opening scene I turned to my wife and said "He did it." I wasn't right but I was close.

I also really like how Castle totally worked Beckett at the end. Very funny!

It's also a relief to finally get an Alexis-heavy episode again. She's been largely absent for most of the season, I'd guess because of Molly C. Quinn's academic commitments. It's good to see her featured more again, though I am getting a little tired both of Castle being unjustifiably suspicious/protective of his daughter and of Alexis being so idealized. I mean, I love it that she's such a great person, but sometimes it's a little hagiographic.
She also recently did a Disney Channel movie, I believe, and I kinda guessed that her gaps on Castle were when she was filming that, though it very well may not have been.

Neither my wife or I had any problem with Castle keeping tabs on Alexis anyway, FWIW.

I don't know. At that age kids should have some expectation of privacy. Plus she has given him no reason to worry.

In Castle's defense, a mystery writer, and one who is confronted with violent crime on a weekly basis, is likely to be a little over-protective--since he can't help imagining all the terrible things that might happen to an unsuspecting teenage girl in the big city.

I understand what you're saying here. But this comes across as him being worried that she's up to no good, rather than being worried for her safety IMO.

I'm with you guys on this one too. If she at least gave him a reason to not trust I could understand, but she hasn't, so his behavior seems kind of unnecessarily.

But she did give him a reason not to trust her: she lied. He caught her "tell".

The point is, even if she was keeping a secret, he should know her well enough by now to know that she's a good and trustworthy person and that, if she did need to deceive him, it was probably for a legitimate reason. One single deception shouldn't be enough to make him forget everything he knows about her character and start assuming the worst. That's how trust works. If you really trust someone, you don't toss out that trust the moment they're less than completely honest with you. You have faith that there's a good reason for it.

^ She lied to his face (more than once), and Castle's been consistently shown to be somewhat overprotective. And I think people are missing the fact the Castle was shown to be in the wrong for tracking her like that.

Good episode overall, though I admit the details of the cases are becoming less and less interesting than the interplay between Castle, Beckett, Ryan, Esposito, and Montgomery. In this particular case, the political situation of the city was more interesting. Taking down a corrupt DA mostly offscreen is a pretty big plotpoint; are they going to go anywhere with this?
