Castle: Is Alexis Going To Be This Season’s Obstacle?

You know, ever since I talked to Molly Quinn at Comic-Con, I have been thinking about just how much Alexis is going to affect our favorite dynamic duo’s relationship. Molly was very adamant about how hard this is going to hit Alexis and how the teen will not take it well.

I have been meaning to write something about it for the past couple of weeks now, but I could never seem to find time to get to it. That was until Ausiello revealed a very juicy piece of info about the youngest Castle, so there can’t be any more postponing this discussion on my part.

For three seasons now, Alexis Castle has been portrayed as pretty much the perfect daughter. Mature for her age, she is probably the most responsible member of the Castle clan and doesn’t give her dad any trouble. She is not rebellious – as a lot of teens worldwide tend to be – she gets along extremely well with her father and, despite the crazy family she has, she is quite well-adjusted.

In season 3 we got a first glimpse of Alexis finally lashing out at Castle and speaking up her mind. An incredibly tiny glimpse, but at least it was there. Molly Quinn hinted several times that this season we will see a very different side of Alexis, especially because she will not be dealing well with everything that happened. I mean, her father tried to take a bullet for another woman in front of his daughter at Captain Montgomery’s funeral. Really, I can’t blame Alexis for not reacting well to that.

Ausiello has talked to Molly, however, and (SPOILER ALERT!) just confirmed what the young actress had hinted at back in July.

‘There’s definitely going to be some words and heat between Alexis, Castle and Kate Beckett,’says Molly Quinn, adding that Alexis ‘still respects’Beckett, ‘but at the same time [it’s like], ‘This isn’t your life. This isn’t your dad. You don’t understand.”

I honestly think this conversation (or whatever this “heat” turns out to be) is way overdue. Finally, there was something big enough to shake Alexis up and make her confront Beckett about just how far Castle is willing to go for her and that that is not okay with the teen. I don’t blame her. If it was my dad, I would be pissed off too.

So that reveal begs the following question: Would Castle quit shadowing Beckett – or at least back off for a little while – if Alexis asked him to? In fact, if that fight (or argument or whatever you want to call it) indeed happens, is Beckett going to be the one to put some distance between herself and Castle in order to protect him and respect Alexis’ wishes?

And finally, if all of that goes down, does that mean Alexis is going to this season’s roadblock for Castle and Beckett? Because if you think about it, Castle already told her he loves and that revelation will come to play at some point this season, whether Beckett remembers it immediately or not. I sincerely hope that the significant other storyline is over and done with, so what better way to keep our dynamic duo apart than his daughter?

As a father, I am sure Castle will put his child’s wishes above anything, including his very strong feelings for Beckett. In fact (and I am really not thrilled about this tidbit that just came in), Ausiello has also revealed that (SPOILER ALERT!) “Castle’s getting a new lust interest! The show is casting the potentially recurring role of a gorgeous, sexy, sophisticated art insurance investigator who takes an immediate liking to Cas and vice-versa. The twist? Ms. Insurance Lady is hiding a surprising past!”

No, I don’t like that. At all.

So between that depressing bit of news and Alexis almost biting Beckett’s head off about her dad, I’d say the near future does not look good for the detective and her favorite writer.

Here is hoping that what Andrew Marlowe said back in May that the fans would not be satisfied with the storyline until midseason holds. I am holding out hope that the Christmas episode will be turning point of the season and of their relationship and that by then this new “lust interest” and Dr. Motorcycle Boy will both be gone for good.

That would be a great Christmas (and birthday!) present.
