Best episode EVER! I love how we got a peek at "Malcolm Reynolds" under the Castle exterior. Brolin displays his standard badassery! Kate was awesome as she "encouraged" the dead perps girlfriend to "share"! All in all, a good time had by all, except, well, the Russians! Cold war this mofos!

This was a good two parter but I think they could ave made it into a three parter. The ending was rushed and for someone who didn't know his father Rick was pretty calm about it. I like watching it in real time but the commercials do me in. The story builds. Then 5 min of commercials by then the buildup has lost its punch for me. Hopefully in the future dad will come back and meet up with Martha again.

I can say nothing more than this was a phenomenal two hours of television and I agree wholeheartedly with the review and that Nathan, Stana, and the writers/directors are deserving of (at the very least) award show noms if not wins. C'mon Globes, SAGS, and Emmys...let's get it together :)

WOW! What a great 2-parter! Really gave Nathan a chance to display his acting chops for a change. Not thrilled with Brolin--one of H'woods' has-beens that married well--there must have been SOMEONE better suited for that role. Well done, writers--you had me going for awhile, although I did figure out WHO the target really was, just not the WHY. I was just as pole-axed as Castle when daddy dearest unveiled. Just tell me you are NOT draggin' Brolins' aging arse into an already tight and great ensemble group. Speaking of which, I kept waiting for the team in NY to jump in and still not sure why they didn't. Now I have to suffer through 3 weeks to get to a new episode. Grrrrr.

James Brolin NAILED IT as Castle's dad. The emotions of the reveal scene where Rick learns this is his father were beautiful and perfect. The scene where Castle realized that his Dad would leave again was heartbreaking. Getting Alexis out was awesome (Team Castle!!) and the ending, with the book and Castle calling Martha "Mom" and saying "there's sometime I want to tell you"--so very fricking amazing!!! I want to be watching the wonderful storytelling of Castle for at least 5 more years, maybe 7, along with millions of others!! Thank you AWM, CBS, cast, crew, everybody!!!

Best castle ever . I was at the end of my seat. Great writing of this episode. I too new he was his father but not until I saw the photos of Alexis on the wall.5stars and more. Hope to see his father in more episodes but not too many. I do like castle because its not so serious all the time but this episode was so well done. It was Amazing!

I absolutely loved the show last night! James Brolin is great as Rick's father...hopefully he will appear again in the future. Also loved the scene of Kate in the interrogation room with the girlfriend. What great actors both Rick and Kate are. Would have enjoyed seeing the whole team at Rick's apartment to welcome he and Alexis home. All in all, an excellent two-parter show!

As soon as I saw the pictures of Alexis as a child, I knew Hunt was her grandfather. I just couldn't figure out which one. LOL. Great episode. Well done. Love this show!

There's nothing I can say that hasn't already been said numerous times:

It's well past time the Emmy's (finally) recognize those involved with this show (actors, writers, creator, producer, etc.).
This episode could've easily been a 3-parter.
James Brolin was wonderfully cast as Castle's dad.
I don't know how, but I'd completely forgotten about Jennifer Beals' character being a Russian spy and how all of that nice fit with this episode.
I absolutely LOVE this show.

The Castle writers love their 2 part episodes involving some kidnapping that effects or involves the main cast, don't they? I wonder who will be kidnapped next year ...

James Brolin was well-cast and the walkie talkie bomb was a great ideas. The only bad point : Nathan Fillion wasn't really in Paris, and it show...
