Well, this might not be a normal question asked around BONES blogs, but…it’s still something I’m kind of curious about. And when I’m curious, there’s only one thing to do…and that’s ask for my friends’ opinions of course!
There are certain unwritten rules about not seducing your best friend’s boyfriend or ex-boyfriend. Of course, Booth isn’t and has never been Brennan’s boyfriend or ex-boyfriend, but…even from the start, Angela seemed pretty hands-off where Booth was concerned. Not that she didn’t make her opinion known (“If I were you, I’d buy a ticket on that ride”), and when watching season one, there is some pretty potent chemistry between Angela and Booth (specifically the beginning of The Man in the Fallout Shelter).
Angela has never really been the type to NOT go for a man she’s interested in. And if she ever put the moves on Booth now…well…I’d be creating an experiment that would result in more than poultry being thrown at her head.
In Mastodon in the Room, she admitted she loved Booth, a little bit, and I loved that more than a little bit. After all, we’re all in love with Booth (some of us more than a little bit); there’s no shame in admitting that.
So, did Angela sense something from Booth in those early days? Something that convinced her he was interested in Brennan? Or did she sense something from Brennan? Brennan told her she found him attractive, but would that be enough for Angela to keep her hands to herself?
Thoughts from you? If you were Angela, would you have had that kind of self-control?
