Bones > Bones Review: Brennan's Universe Turned Upside Down > Comments Page 2
One thing I forgot to mention was how charmed I was by the night watchman's character. I have seen this actor steal scenes before in other programs, and he has always been endearing. I hope he was no figment of her imagination, and I would like to see more of him.
I agree that this season has been disappointing, and that Booth seems to be contemptuous of Brennan, and that the writers have gone nuts. But on one point I must disagree. I went through a scene like that in the truck myself once. Literally. He loved me, I didn't love him. I loved him, he didn't love me. At our "point of the truck" scene, he said to me much the same thing as Booth said to Brennan, and it was the kindest way to do it. There was no possible doubt of his meaning, and while it was agony to hear, I got over it and moved on. He gave me no false hope. In terms of a joke which goes around periodically, he cut the puppydog's tail off all at once, not one inch at a time.
But Bones this season still ticks me off royally, and I think if they don't shape it up, this show will die a young death.
I thought this was a great episode. It certainly gave Brennan some depth. I'm also one of the few people who like Hannah; I think she's good for Booth. Once the PTB put Booth and Brennan together in a romantic relationship, this show will suffer the same fate as "House," which totally sucks this season. The chemistry between the two characters will be gone.
Does anyone else think that Micah was a figment of Brennan's imagination? She was sleep-deprived and hallucinating (her "conversations" with the dead doctor); it stands to reason that Micah wasn't real either. I think he was a representation of Brennan's scientific, rational side. He helped her think things through and kept her moving in the right direction. On the other hand, he also helped her access the emotional part of herself, i.e. confronting and confessing her feelings for Booth.
I think the writers did her character justice. The line, "She's not a consolation prize" was perfect. I just hope the writers pl
I couldn't agree with Mickey & Maureen more.
What kept viewers emotionally attached to the show was that even if romance wasn't involved, the friendship that had been so meticulously crafted throughout the first five seasons was so strong and heartwarming that whatever the outcome of their romantic situations you were always confident that the wit and extraordinary care that existed between these two characters was so singularly impregnable that your faith in them never wavered.
That being said, the sixth season has been woefully disappointing. Reverting to painfully awkward Brennan dialogue, even after her character in the last season developed so dramatically, coupled with Booth's unappealing and frankly insulting confused side-long glances makes the show difficult to continue to enjoy. Why is it that all of a sudden Booth seems so wholeheartedly uninterested in spending any time with Brennan? Their touching goodbye at the end of last season seemed to assure an emotional bond
Why we don't have a round table for bones? there is one for every show on tv fanatic...
loved the episode and the acting was epic. I just hope Hannah figures out soon that brennan and booth love each other, don't get me wrong i have nothing against hannah but, you know...
EPIIC!! great episode, i've just love it. i'm so sorry for bones... i didn't thik i would see her crying that way... and the mikah's dialogue was amazing, i hope to see him again during this season. can't wait to january!!
If Hannah wasn't with Booth I'd still find her a vapid, clueless, self-centered, Lolita. Puppies are adorable, babies and young children. She's supposed to be a mature, smart, savvy woman. That's what the show-runners keep saying. She has yet to appear that way. She's looks and acts like an adolescent boy's fantasy girl.
I loved this episode, Emily was excellent and I really felt for Brennan! And although I completely understand what you mean re. Booth, do you not think he's being a bit cold with her as means of self preservation. It's not easy to love someone who doesn't completely feel the same way or can't express that, perhaps he's just trying to protect his heart! If he really does love her, he is bound to start looking at he differently! Oh and I can't stand Hannah, she's just so blaaaah!
I agree with Mickey 100%. This was definitely Brennan's episode and Emily Deschanel was brilliant. I really don't like what the writer's have done with Booth lately and I particularly detest Hannah. Part of the joy of watching Bones for the past five and a half seasons was the wonderful chemistry between the characters and although Booth was rejected by Brennan in the 100th episode for someone who was supposed to have loved her so much and had been in love with her from the moment he first met her, he has become someone who simply does not care about her. Although this was a sort of epiphany for Brennan and was much needed in order to further develop the character, that joy that spark that use to make this show something special has become banal. Although last night episode was good I hated the ending and am really starting to dislike Booth. Booth was fully aware of Brennan's social awkwardness and her fears of long lasting relationships but claimed to love her over the previous season
I don't know that there's no hope for the two (although partners can be such close friends that they do actually love each other more than they might a mate ... without becoming mates). What I keep wondering is which series regular is going to be killed by the sniper. This episode makes me suspect it's Hannah.
I think it's important too that Brennan realized she's not the doctor and unlike her in many ways. Brennan may realize she might have regrets before her life is over and that she does have feelings that can't very easily be compartmentalized intellectually ... but she isn't in live with danger and dangerously tossing her life out there in the way of petty harm to see if the fates take it ... which of course, if you cross enough streets without looking on purpose or hang out of helicopters often enough, it will. Brennan knows she's not like that. In fact, just speaking up to Booth, I believe, allows the character to look at others who might come into her life with eyes ope
Sorry..but the description of Hannah as "adorable" made me GAG. She is as adorable as a wet rag, in my opinion.
I think that the character is so vapid and uninteresting...clearly only there for one purpose and that is to mess up the Booth/Brennan dynamic.
This episode was stellar in many ways thanks to Emily Deschanel and the writing for her. She rocked. The fact, however, that a night watchman at the Jeffersonian (who I loved) apparently cares more for Brennan that Booth does now is tragic. The ending of the show with his response to her emotion...emotion that she has such a difficult time showing...was barbaric. If he truly loved her as much as he seemed to love her before, there is NO WAY that he would respond as he did. That was NOT the Booth that we had prior to this season. I wish this impostor Booth would leave town with vapid Hannah and the real Booth would step out from behind whatever curtain he is hiding behind and say, "I'm back!"
Watching the show now ma
Ah yes, don't forget the conversation between Brennan and the nightwatch guardian. Brillant dialogue!
At last, some good feeling on the show !!!
I agree, hope is not just one of these episode and the writer forget about it...
I agree, Hannah is adorable. That's what makes it so well done and true to life I think. We all (I think) want Booth to be with Brennan instead, but we also like Booth in general, and Hannah's a great catch, not someone you would dislike at all if she weren't a "roadblock." It will be interesting to see if when, how Bones' confession changes their relationship going forward.
I've been looking forward to this episode since day one, no I don't predict the future but I knew that eventually Brennan would become more self aware and start living her life. Yes it was also great to see her admit her feelings for Booth, it had been escalating since the beginning of the season.
I hope we get to see some change in her character, I hate when something as major as this happens in a show and then is ignored until another major episode.
I felt so bad for Brennan because I knew things between her and Booth wouldn't change. I think Hannah is serving her purpose on the show well but I can't wait to see Booth with Brennan.
I loved this episode I think it was amazingly done and it left me feeling satisfied on regards to her relationship because now she has finally admitted how she feels about Booth and that's a step in the right direction. I wasn't as heartbroken when Booth confessed his love. Just saying it left on a higher note than previous times
I loved the way the writers handled this episode. It could have been really cheesy or cliched but it wasn't. Brennan had to face some pretty serious questions about herself and really put herself out there with Booth. I also liked the fact that Booth didnt recripocate Brennan's feelings for him. I think she needs to go through what he had to go through for so long, knowing that the one your in love with doesnt want, or cant, be with you. Its going to be interesting to see how they work together now that Booth knows how she really feels! Bring on the drama!!!
I hate Hannah. She's a B&B road block abd I don't like her.-I think Bones' confession did get through to him. Even though he's moved on with Hannah and says he 'loves', I think he loves Bones more.
This was definitely a game changing episode! At the end of last week's episode, she had a look that was unlike any Brennan look before. To me, it seemed like she was longing for Booth. This episode brought her feelings out (seemingly for the first time on Bones). I believe her feelings for Booth were there, but stuffed down. I'm interested to see where they go from here. Hannah is adorable, but I'd rather see Booth with Brennan.
