Hey! It’s early Friday morning…very early. It might not even be Friday where you live, but I wanted to open this question up for discussion. This post could also be called, “How is Emily Deschanel so amazing?” but…I am afraid that might be a losing battle. You see, it’s possible that ED may never win an Emmy for her performance of Dr. Temperance Brennan. This pains me, but the sting is soothed by the knowledge that we can proclaim her greatness here!
Along those lines, I think that after last night’s ep, I find I’m even more curious about the character development of Brennan. Is that even possible, you might ask? After all…I do already talk about Brennan quite a bit. I can’t help it! She’s very fascinating to me.
Though her loneliness in past S6 eps has made me cry, her gung-ho approach to the science cheer and her seeking out Booth’s approval and returning his thumbs-up also did. I think she’s learning about more than just romantic love; it’s friendship (like with Angela), welcoming those different from her into the lab (Dude), stepping outside her comfort zone (going on the show), and considering a legacy she has to offer (girls everywhere will begin to dream big!).
So, please answer me this: (and forgive the somewhat awkward phrasing), but…what exactly IS the truth of Brennan. In other words…what does Booth know of her, and what is he dazzled by? What do WE know of her? What are WE dazzled by (that maybe she hasn’t allowed Booth to see?) And…does she have to KNOW what it is before she can accept that Booth sees it? What was it that made Booth know? And what is it about her that sort of keeps him devoted to her? Is it just the thrill of the chase? Or is it more?
I know you’re going to rock the comments and discussion and analysis on this one, and to that, I say:
Peace, Love & Bones,
