Enjoyable ep. A bit far-fetched, but not enough to dampen the fun.

I guess it marks me as a fan — or God forbid, a "shipper" — and not just a viewer, but one of the things about Castle is that in some senses the actual mysteries aren't entirely necessary to my enjoyment of the show. I like the characters, and I like to see them interact. The why of the story sometimes isn't as important, especially in episodes like this where the premise is frankly ridiculous. (Other examples are S3E4 Punked or S5E6 The Final Frontier.)

I did laugh right out loud when Martha walked into Rick's "perimeter alarm."

I liked that this was a classic Castle episode, but was surprised by the conclusion. I would have thought the "super secret government facility with a completely working cloaking suit" was one of those Castle theories that are usually proven to be ridiculous when there is a logical explanation.
Still, I did like the episode and it was good to see Beckett and Castle back together as usual.
I'm not sure about the idea that Castle's disappearance will be a thing that will be revisited on and off for the next season(s) like Beckett mother's murder used to be. I kind of wish they'd deal with that and move on. It doesn't make much sense to me that last week Castle was all "I need to find out and I need to find out now" and this week there wasn't even any talk about it.
