I'm amazed at how easily some people figure out plotlines, sometimes only a few minutes into the show. When they first visited the Talbott's, my wife said "It was her child, and he stole it or something. The wife is innocent." And as it unfolded, I marveled at the (IMO) great twists and turns, but also how it was pretty much what my wife said it would be. Of course, she watches a lot more TV than I do. Maybe it's all according to a formula she's seen before.
The "tension" - will he or won't he? - was well-acted, but I think we all knew Castle would end up staying somehow, which robbed the scene of most of its impact.
What got me was when they visited the victim's ex-husband, who now finds out that his biological son is actually alive. I'd forgotten about him, and was tearing up when he got to see the boy.
