I absolutely love this part because she refuses to say it until he says “For me, please” That’s when she says it because even though she is still keeping the fact that she remembers from him, even though that wall is still there, she will still do anything for him.
Okay so I think we can all agree that Alexis’s behavior is out of character and according to Alexis in Get A Clue, it’s because she wants Castle to accept her relationship with Pi just like she accepts his relationship with Kate, but honestly I think it’s much deeper than that and I don’t think…
Thank you! My thoughts exactly!! I just didn’t like how she closed the door in his face. To me that is disrespectful. Although, I do understand that all Alexis wants to be is accepted. I get that. Everyone in this world wants to feel accepted no matter what the situation is. I wanted to feel accepted too but it was a totally different situation and it involved bullying which is something completely different. But my point is, all what Alexis really wants is like you said, for her dad to trust her to make her own decisions and accept it.
Exactly. I didnt like that she shut the door either but Alexis is a teenager and when teenagers are angry we act before we think and thats all this is. She isnt trying to be a bitch shes just frustrated and unsure how to express her feelings.

I think it has to do with Alexis wanting her dad to accept her choices and trust her even if he knows what she is doing is a mistake because she just wants him to trust her to figure out her life on her own, but the problem is she doesn’t know how to express this. It’s a new feeling which is confusing enough and to make matters even more confusing, things in her dad’s life changed because of the proposal and the job in DC and all that so it’s literally like everything in her life is changing so she has no idea what to which is where Pi comes in. She is trying to figure out a way to let her dad know what she is feeling, to let her know that she wants her dad to accept her so the easiest way to do that in her mind is for her to make it all about Castle accepting Pi. Teenagers do that all the time. They can’t figure out how to use their words to express what their feelings so they find a totally unrelated situation to try to express it. Do I necessarily agree with it? No, but I understand where she is coming from. In the eyes of Alexis, what she is doing is perfectly justifiable, and she isn’t doing anything wrong because like I said, she’s never had to deal with anything like this before and it’s new for her. Plus there is the fact that her entire life, she has been responsible and generally acts like the adult in her relationship with her dad which is a lot of pressure and when this happens, teenagers will tend to go overboard when they try to be independent.
On other note there is the issue of people thinking that Alexis said that she doesn’t think Castle should have proposed and that Kate isn’t the one, but this isn’t true, it’s a misunderstanding and it was another way for her to try to portray what she was feeling. She said “I don’t know if proposing when he did was the right thing to do or she doesn’t know if Kate is the one but she accepts it because Kate makes Castle happy” Essentially what she is saying is nobody knows what the future holds but that doesn’t mean that you don’t do what makes you happy just because you don’t know. that’s what Alexis wants her dad to understand. That he may not agree with her choices and she may make mistakes but if it makes her happy, even if she doesn’t know what the future holds, she just wants her dad to be there for her and support her, to let her figure it out that its a mistake on her own.
that is all. this made a lot more sense in my head last night and my thoughts got kind of mumbled over night so feel free to ask questions if something doesn’t make sense.
