Don't anyone underestimate how often "incredibly handsome, good men with...qualities that women jump at" are attracted to women who they can't have in the way that they'd like...and women's inability to take a good man seriously.
There's something about wanting what you can't have, for men and women alike.
This episode was engaging, but I found myself wondering if the cast was being rushed or what, since they didn't seem all that "into" it.
Thank Goodness Hannah is finally gone. I have disliked her character from the beginning. It did not help that her acting was rudimentary, at best. I really think adding a serious love triangle threw all of the fans off from what we REALLY want to see when we sit down to watch the episodes: a fascinating case and some really great chemistry.
Most of you are missing the beauty in last night's episode... and the show in general - it's realistic. The fact that the fire between Booth and Brennan flickers, dies, reignites, and repeats is not to dull the situation, but to make it feel real to us viewers!
I had tears in my eyes at the end. I think on the vday one brennan is going to be dating someone.
Did anyone else think Booth was going to give Sweets the ring to propose to Daisy with???
I think the "Moonlighting" curse has set in for me. I don't know if it's the writing or what, but I'm not feeling the chemistry between Booth & Brennan. I kind of think the show missed its chance to get these characters together. Beginning of the end?
Last nightâ€™s episode of Bones was (like most of the episodes since the 100th episode) disappointing. The only good thing about the episode is Hannah is now gone. The case itself was only average and I was not impressed with the relationship aspect. David Boreanazâ€™s acting in this episode was good but I donâ€™t think it was his best performance to date (as was stated on one of the sites). His emotional state at the end of the 100th episode was more evident and both Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz turned in their best work of the series during that episode.
I found it anti-climatic and a bit stupid that it would be Hannah who would not want to marry Booth simply by saying sheâ€™s not the marrying kind. I felt that it should have been Booth who had an epiphany and decided that it was Brennan that he loved best and then he would dump Hannah. To have Booth not be the one in control of the situation diminishes his character. This is twice that he has listened to Sweets and his actions based on Sweetsâ€™ advice have been an emotional disaster. The writers are creating inconsistencies in the characterization of Booth in that sometimes Booth can really read people but when it comes to his own personal relationships he seems to be blind â€“ (Hannah telling him she had told him several times she was not the marrying kind but he just wasnâ€™t listening). Also, if Hannah was not a consolation prize and he truly loved her then why would he be giving Bones loving looks as he did at then end of the Sin in the Sisterhood and tell her that you may love many people in your life but youâ€™ll always love one the best. When Brennan responds what if they got away and Booth tells her that theyâ€™re going nowhere to me would mean that the door is still very much open for Brennan and that he still loves her (perhaps more than he loves Hannah). So to have him buy an engagement ring for Hannah in the very next episode doesnâ€™t make sense.
It also doesnâ€™t make sense that if Booth and Hannah are living together she would not want to marry him. Aside from being incredibly handsome Booth is a good man with a lot of qualities that most women would jump at. For the writers to have him be rejected by the three women he loves reduces Booth from strong and self-assured to an angry, bitter man. The producers and writers of Bones may think that playing up Boothâ€™s dark side is the way to go to create interest and drama; however this fan thinks it might end up being another nail in the Bones coffin. I would not be surprised if the series was not renewed and this would be a shame because it could have been prevented if the producers and writers had not played devilâ€™s advocate with Brennan/Booth chemistry.
The only really interesting episode this season has been the Bullet in the Brain. Does anyone else find themselves sitting through the other Seasons 6 episodes, waiting for the boring murder investigations to end, just so you can get to the "good" parts between B&B?? Is that what this show has become?
I miss the old days when the murder investigations were creative, interesting, even funny. Now, they seem like trumped-up backdrops to the real drama of the show, the endless dragging out of the relationship between B&B.
People worry that getting B&B together will kill the show. I respectfully disagree. It's this dragging-it-out that's killing it for me. I'm tired of waiting. I want to see them together. And not in a dream sequence, or some other creative illusion. I want to see them together, happy together, working together, and starting a family together. It can be done. Once they're together and all the fans are happy, we can get back to focusing on the crime drama aspect of the show, while we enjoy B&B in their life together. That's what I'd like to see.
Last night's episode was just okay for me. The investigation part was, again, boring. The only reason I sat through it was to see if Booth would really propose to Hannah. I'm a bit disappointed that he did. I thought maybe, he would buy the ring, then realize the only reason he was thinking of proposing was because Sweets made him feel like a loser for not being married. Then he might recognize that his feelings for Hannah, while genuine, have never been as strong as they were for Brennan. Then he'd understand, he still loves Brennan. And therefore, Hannah must go.
I was disappointed that he actually went through with the proposal, as if he's really gotten over Brennan and wants to marry someone else. Because I am one of those fans who, deep down, hopes he still loves Brennan (and that Hannah is really just a consolation prize after all).
Now, we wait some more. I think Hannah's going to be around a little longer, in one or two more episodes, then gone for good. I wouldn't be surprised if she and Brennan have some meaningful conversations about Booth, that will open Brennan's eyes some more to her own feelings for Booth. To contrast her from Hannah. Hannah may not be the "marrying kind," but I think in the next few months Brennan will realize that she (Brennan) is, if it's with Booth.
I think it'll take till the end of the season for Booth to move on from Hannah, and recognize that he's belonged with Brennan from the start. Hopefully they'll together in the season finale. Then we'll get to wait some more to see what their relationship looks like ... I don't enjoy all this waiting, but if the writers do it right, it'll be worth it in the end.
I didn't like the Hannah storyline from the beginning, but it was so obvious she was a good character -- even won Parker over. Of all the scenarios I envisioned to break them up, this was one that didn't occur to me.
I also thought Booth shouldn't have thrown away the ring, but maybe he has one of those charge accounts that insures your purchases against loss... I don't think I would mind a recycled engagement ring, but then I received my ring 43 years ago. 8)
I thought that the episode was so-so, but we were all waiting for the end, weren't we? I'm so happy that Hannah is gone, but wish that it had gone another way - she should have refused based on the fact that she knew that B&B love each other, and he should see it too. Obviously she feels that way, as she sent Bones to him at the bar. And I think that the amount of hurt that we saw Booth in last night was not because of Hannah. Yeah, he may have fooled himself into thinking that she was THE ONE, but she was really just a rebound and he was out of character throughout his entire short relationship with her. Obviously neither of them listened to each other, and I have to admit, I was never a fan of Hannah's, but I got even more ticked off last night with her whole "I thought we'd have more time before this...". Who moves in with someone, says they love them, and doesn't see it going in a certain direction? But she's now gone and will not come back and Booth is finally angry and grieving for Bones rejecting him in episode 100.
But Bones did the right thing - right then, she only had 2 options, leave or stay and be a friend. And she made the right choice. I don't think that Booth meant that as a permanent there are only 2 choices, I think that was what he needed from her that night. And from this, hopefully they can start their friendship again and let it finally grow into something more.
I firmly believe that bringing them together in a romantic relationship would not ruin the show. I think that it would be so entertaining, and it doesn't do the show justice to compare it to Moonlighting and those other shows. This is a show about relationships, and that includes the staff of the Jeffersonian and how they all interact. Making B&B a couple could make for some very entertaining TV.
