This episode was wonderful. I don't understand why you people think it isn't as good since they got together. I for one think it has made the show so much better. Last nights episode was beautiful. It gave us insights into why bones is the way she is,gave us some sweet moments between bones & max & showed us how deeply booth loves bones. If you think the show has gone down hill so much why do you continue to watch & berate it. Just dont watch. Apparently America doesnt agree with you since it's got great ratings & finished 2nd in the 8pm hr,1st in the 8:30 & had over 9mil viewers last night & is renewed for season 9!!

The spark is gone from the show. I liked it better when they wernt together. around the holidays other show are light and lively this one gets really serious. It was the same at Christmas. Two babies and not even a mention of the holidays. Same with valentines day. They need to lighten up

Texasgreatgrams, the point is Brennan's character would not react the way the writers portrayed her, and there is no such thing as an out of body experience (and she did not actually communicate with her mom because she would no longer exist). I can readily understand that you find difficulty following my reasoning, because it is reasoning and not magical thinking. As a former Christian who engaged in fasting at times I am quite familiar with very bizarre dreams so I think I can understand what is taking place in the so-called near death experience (because of the self induced bodily stress as well as psychological stress resulting from sustained periods of intense Bible reading and prayer).

Just a follow up comment to Christine Knight's comment. Why are you so threatened about Bones' "out of body experience"? We don't know what her follow up rational will be. I understand if you no longer want to watch this show, just find it difficult to comprehend your reasoning. To each, his own.

I really liked this episode which seems to put me in the minority. It was good to see Tempe experiencing a situation she can not rationally explain-interacting with her deceased Mom. I don't think this will completely change her world view, but could open her mind a little more to what Booth has been trying to help her see for years-there are things that happen in this life that can not be explained. Looking forward to the 2 parter coming up, starting next week.

I was extremely disappointed and insulted by what the writers did to Bones in this episode. The writers trivialized the rational explanation that so-called near death experiences are nothing more than a dreamlike neurophysiological phenomenon produced by a dying or severely stressed brain. They made of Bones a caricature of the critical thinking atheist. We are led to believe that the atheist is simply misguided and the real reason for her unbelief has a psychological basis in response to childhood trauma. Please!!! One of the main reasons I liked this show (now in the past tense) was because it had a main character that presented a positive image of an unbeliever, instead of the typical representations of the atheist who is so because there is something wrong with him/her. I AM NOW A FORMER VIEWER OF THE SHOW!

As I watched and enjoyed this episode, I knew I was in the minority. Atheist, religious fanatic, or something in between -- there are just some things beyond human understanding, and this is one way of settling one's own discomfort with not understanding. I feel Brennan has become closer to her mother since the day she identified the bones, and Max did say that he was the only one who knew that gift was stolen.

You can believe me or not, but fearing that you'll lose the one you love can make the relationship stronger. When an outsider likes two people who like each other, it's pleasant to watch them grow.

Well I for one adored this episode. The love between B&B was so palpable it was simply wonderful to behold. I felt this way probably because I want to simply enjoy my favourite tv show as opposed to picking it apart scene by scene every week.

What I am watching on a weekly basis is what I dreamed I might see but was sure the show wouldn't go long enough to actually witness 8 years ago.

Just MHO of course!
