Yes to all of this.
@Christine Orlando - What did I tell ya?!
This was one of my favourite episodes (until the blasted final scene). The case was fun, Castle, Beckett, Ryan and Esposito were all hilarious, and I gotta admit, I was totally cheering during that sword fight. Yet another episode where Castle isn't made to look like a fool with his crazy theories. Was LOVING this episode until....Alexis.
I will admit, Castle didn't handle the dinner well. But that's ONE instance. He has been nothing but patient up till this point. Castle is seriously one of the best fathers - single father, even - to grace television. So when Alexis refused to let him in the door and THEN closed the door in his face while he was standing there (which where I come from is grounds for disowning), it didn't even matter to me what she was angry about, or whether she was justified. That was rude, petulant, immature, disrespectful behaviour, and there's nothing Richard Castle has done on this show that deserves the way Alexis continues to treat him.
I've had it with her. I hate the way she's being written. It's like now that Castle's in a relationship they needed to give him some kind of personal conflict, so they bastardized Alexis' character to make her the source of it. I'm so done.

OH - OH - I almost forgot....anyone catch that after the kiss, after Emma told him to hang back for five, the dread pirate Hook responded to his love, "As you wish."
I thought of that...but I think it's because they don't have an exit strategy? I don't know...
No spoilers from me :-) But I do think that it will make the fans even more divisive about her character. Looking forward to the review tonight!
I've been leaning towards this theory - simply because the show has never really wasted a character. I actually don't have a problem with Pi at all - he's a bit annoying, but I'm interested to see what they're going to do with him.
This was probably my favourite episode all season, and probably with most of last season, too. I love Hook, and I love his back story even more. And holy crow, that kiss...
I think Hook keeping the secret of Neal's survival is too predictable. I think he'll tell them, or at least tell Charming. I think Hook does have honour, and don't think he wants to have Emma by default; he would rather that she chose him. Besides - do they all know that Hook was the one who handed Baelfire over to Pan in the first place? I can't remember if that's common knowledge, but that seems like a worse secret to me.
On another note - I would love to buy a beer for whoever decided that Regina should be the resident smart-ass! I pretty much love every word that comes out of her mouth. and I was with her on the sleeping curse.
Last thing - where the heck is Rumple?
(sigh) Just saw this week's episode - we get it a day early in Canada. I officially completely dislike her now.
My brother and I were discussing a theory last night - thought I'd share. Perhaps when a Grimm gets infected with a Wesen pathogen, it enhances some of his abilities, but the effects linger. Last season, when he got infected with the eye-worms, he went blind, but in turn got super hearing, and that lasted even after he was cured from the eye thing.
It appears that this zombie pathogen has enhanced his strength (did you see that metal coffin - and he WALKED AWAY from a plane crash), but also reduced his anger management filter. Dude's kinda like the Hulk now. It'll be interesting to see what happens after he's cured. Grimm SMASH!!!
